Cobie Smulders and Danika Yarosh, stars of this year’s first big action movie, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, were in London yesterday for the film’s UK premiere. We caught up with them before they hit the red carpet.

Cobie Smulders is of course best-known for her role as Robin in hit comedy series How I Met Your Mother, though she has also been making a name for herself in the Marvel universe as Maria Hill (she plays the role in both Avengers films, Captain America: Winter Soldier and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).

Danika, meanwhile, is a TV star from series Heroes: Reborn and Shameless. Jack Reacher 2 was her first big film role and she tells us how Tom Cruise (who stars in the titular role as well as producing the film) made her feel right at home on set.

The two actresses also talked about running with Tom (‘He’s really fast so you have to be really ready to keep up’) as well as playing strong female leads (‘[They] didn’t allow us to be in the back seat’).
