remembers watching iCarly – it’s basically “THE SHOW” that you watched while
growing up!

things are not going so well for all the cast members after all.

McCurdy, the actor who played the role of Sam on iCarly, has just given us the
reason why she quit acting for good. It’s shocking to know that the actor— who
we saw and loved being best friends with Miranda Cosgrove for years— has called
it quits.

she did a podcast with Anna Faris called Fish out of Water. McCurdy said that
her experience as a child star were often traumatic. She made a big revelation
that it was actually her mother who pursued her to act – it was never her

explained that her mother put her up there at the age of 6 and, by the time she
was 10 to 11, she became the main financial supporter of the family. She said
that her family didn’t have a lot of money and this was the only way for them
to make ends meet. It was actually this need that drove her to achieve whatever
little success she earned.

added that the day her mother passed away, her dreams died too. The death of her
mother took away her ideas and, from there on, it’s been a difficult journey –
something she’s had to deal with alone.

also did a show with Ariana Grande for Nickelodeon, which was an
iCarly-Victorious spin-off. However, she soon exited from the spotlight and
left fans wondering what happened. Some assume that she’ll return for the
revival of iCarly – a deal with Paramount+! Apparently, the revival is bringing
back all the cast members that we love, including Miranda Cosgrove, Nathan
Kress, and Jerry Trainor.

the interesting statement that she made was the one where she revealed that it
wasn’t just the death of her mother that made her quit acting – it was also the
type of roles she was given.

Carly’s edgy best friend, McCurdy used to wear a lot of crazy outfits. She
would also be asked to pull strange stunts on the show that were bizarre and
embarrassing. Commenting on that aspect, she said: “I resent my career in a lot of ways. I feel so unfulfilled by the
roles that I played and felt like it was the most just cheesy, embarrassing.”

though she gave up on acting, she hasn’t said goodbye to other aspects of the
job. She is still interested in directing and writing stories that are
empowering. She spoke about her dream to the woman – Anna Faris – who created the
one-woman show!

was a long podcast and McCurdy was ready to unleash all the regret,
embarrassment, and trauma. It’s sad to know that a person— who was such an
important part of our childhood— went through so much and we never even got a
