Former NIGHT SHIFT and GENERAL HOSPITAL nurse Nazanin Boniadi (ex-Leyla) has been tapped to play the recurring role of Sarah on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, according to TV Line. The site reports that Sarah will appear in multiple episodes as a love interest for Neil Patrick Harris's Barney.
Soaps In Depth did some digging and found out that Sarah is one of Robin's colleagues at the news station. But when some co-workers get together for a "female solidarity" Valentine's Day celebration at the bar, Sarah ends up spending more time hanging out with Barney than complaining about men with her bitter co-workers!
Boniadi's Nurse Leyla made her Port Charles debut in 2007 on SOAPnet's 13-week primetime spin-off NIGHT SHIFT, and continued playing the role on GH until the character died in 2009 after inhaling the lethal biotoxin that was released in the hospital.
