Sircar was chosen to play the role of  Sally’s best friend in the would-be spin-off series of “How I Met Your Dad,” but the show was unfortunately not picked up. But to her credit, she’s played a lot of odd roles, such as the crazy “Twilight” fanatic in “The Internship,” which is a comedy starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, as middle-aged salesmen trying to revive their stalling careers by interning Google. She has also nabbed a couple of guest star appearances on Disney shows, including “Hannah Montana” and the “Suite Life on Deck.”
