Lyndsy Fonseca

Actress Lyndsy Fonseca may have started her career in family-friendly Disney shows and romantic comedies, but it was her undeniable dramatic bent that made her a true star. She first gained acclaim as a troubled teen on the long-running daytime soap opera, "The Young and the Restless" (CBS, 1973- ). The role opened up new doors and more projects for the talented actress, including recurring spots on the top-rated CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" (2005-14) and on the popular ABC series "Desperate Housewives" (2004-1) as a member of a secretive family. Fonseca's turns as a superhero's girlfriend in the teen flick "Kick-Ass" (2010), John Cusack's love interest in the comedy feature "Hot Tub Time Machine" (2010), and a lead role as an assassin-in-training on the remake of the film and series "Nikita" (The CW, 2010-14) provided her instant sex symbol status.
