In 2006, Rose began her highest profile role to date, co-starring as tightly-wound mother Angela Petrelli on "Heroes" (NBC 2006-2010). During this period, she also started another recurring role, playing the divorced and newly frisky mother of Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) on "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS 2005-2014).
