Exclusive Interview with iCarly’s Jennette McCurdy

The school paper my oldest daughter writes for just ran an interview she conducted with her friend Jennette McCurdy. She did such a good job that I chose her to be Get it Got it Good‘s first guest blogger. Here’s the interview, exactly as it ran in The Mariners Christian School Junior High Tide, with absolutely no editorial assistance from Dad (which is probably a good thing).

NOTE (1/17): I’ve received some questions on this, so I thought I’d clarify. Jennette and Emily don’t go to the same school. They became friends a few years ago through ice skating (they’re on the same synchronized team and take lessons together). This interview was for Emily’s school paper.

Star of New Hit TV Show iCarly Chats with the High Tide

by: Emily Hodgkins

Jennette McCurdy, also known as “Sam” from the new show iCarly in Nick, took time out of her day of shooting to talk to the High Tide about what it’s like to be an actress on a television show.

McCurdy, 15, has been acting since she was about eight. She has starred and guest-starred in a multitude of TV shows and movies, from CSI and Will and Grace to Zoey 101 and Malcolm in the Middle. iCarly is her first permanent television job, and she has enjoyed working with the different actors and actresses. She says her favorite part of acting is “making people laugh. I have also enjoyed working with Miranda Cosgrove (Carly), Nathan Kress (Freddie) and Jerry Trainor (Spencer).”

When the High Tide asked her what her favorite episode was, she responded, “Definetely, iDream of Dance,” the episode where Jennette got to dance in a kilt to bagpipe music. The rest of the interview went as follows:

HT: What was the funniest moment you’ve had on the show?

JM: Actually, there have been quite a few so far. There was an episode where Miranda, Nathan and I were supposed to pull down Jerry’s pants. We were doing a run-through and were going to mime it. But we actually pulled a little too hard and his pants and underwear started to come down. Nobody saw anything, but he was like, “Cover your eyes, children, you’ll be scarred for life!”

HT: What do you do in your free time?

JM: I really like to figure skate, hockey skate, write, cook, and hang out with friends.

HT: What did you do for the premiere of iCarly?

JM: I went over to a friend’s house and watched the episodes on their TV. We played board games, ate pizza, laughed a lot, and, of course, watched the Nick countdown.

HT: Who has been your funniest fan?

JM: Once, when I was in the restroom at Universal Studios, a boy — yes, he was in the girls’ bathroom…no, I don’t know why — and he came up and was like, “Are you the guy from iCarly?” And I said, “I’m not a guy, but, uh, yeah.”

HT: What is it like to see yourself on television?

JM: It’s really wierd. Whenever I see myself in the media anywhere, like on a poster or a magazine, it kind of freaks me out!

Jennette’s website, jennettemccurdy.com, and the show’s website, icarly.com, both have more pictures, videos, and articles to learn more about either Jennette or iCarly.

Hope you enjoyed it!
