Eric Braeden, Guest Star

On November 3, Eric Braeden - who stars as Victor on The Young and the Restless - will appear on How I Met Your Mother.

The soap opera veteran will portray Robin Charles Scherbatsky, Sr., the father of Robin.

He recently spoke to Soap Opera Digest about the role:

How did it go?
It was a wonderful experience. Everyone on that show, from director to producer to crew to the actors, were all very nice and gracious.

How would you describe Robin, Sr.?
He's a character who wanted his daughter to be a boy, so there are some very funny scenes.

Your character has a strange relationship with his daughter because he wanted a boy.

There's a [flashback] scene where he's standing over [his daughter's birth] with a cigar and going, "It's going to be a boy! Push, push, push [laughs]!"

Then he raises her like a son.
Yeah, I don't know how anyone could have that reaction. I have a granddaughter who I absolutely adore.

HIMYM Quotes

Ted [to Stella in his dream encounter]: You picked the wrong guy.
Stella: Ted?
Ted: You picked the wrong guy. You made a really, really, really bad choice. What were you thinking? That guy? Are you kidding me? Have you learned nothing in the last eight years? You're just gonna regret this. You know that, right? You are going to regret this, and now there is nothing you can do about it because it's too late. All you can do now is go up there and start your crappy, disappointing life that will never be nearly as happy as the one you could have had with me. Good-bye.
Stella: Ted, wait.
Ted: Look, Stella, I am not here to win you back. I am here because I need to know that you know you made the biggest mistake of your life.
Stella: I know

You are the love of my life. Everything I have and everything I am is yours. Forever.
