Hey there, ‘iCarly’ fans! Remember our beloved Carly Shay, played by the one and only Miranda Taylor Cosgrove? She entered our lives with a bang in the hit Nickelodeon TV show ‘iCarly’ and quickly stole our hearts. As the highest-paid child actor in 2012, she continued to shine bright, and in 2022, she even made it to Forbes magazine’s ’30 Under 30′ list! Oh, the nostalgia is real, right? Let’s dive into where our favorite teenage star is now and what she’s been up to lately!
Career After ‘iCarly’
After waving goodbye to ‘iCarly’ in 2012, Miranda Cosgrove decided to hit the books at the University of Southern California. But don’t worry, she didn’t leave the entertainment world behind! While studying, she lent her voice to the ‘Despicable Me’ movies as Margo, starting in 2010 and continuing through ‘Despicable Me 2’ (2013) and ‘Despicable Me 3’ (2017).
Plus, she popped up on the NBC comedy series ‘Crowded,’ scared us in the horror film ‘The Intruders’ (2015), and appeared in some TV movies. Talk about staying busy!
Recent Projects And The ‘iCarly’ Revival
Guess what, guys? Miranda Cosgrove is back with a vengeance! She showed off her acting chops in ‘North Hollywood,’ a movie about becoming a pro skater, and even guest-starred on an episode of ABC’s ‘The Goldbergs.’ But the best part? She’s reprising her role as Carly Shay in the ‘iCarly’ revival on Paramount+!
We’re loving the reboot, and after the second season premiered on April 2022 and a third season coming in 2023, there’s plenty more Carly to enjoy. And hey, did you see that sneak peek of Cosgrove’s wild new look for season three? It’s giving us major Kim Kardashian vibes, and we are here for it!
Hold on to your hats, folks! Miranda Cosgrove is about to step into the rom-com world with ‘Mother of the Bride,’ starring alongside Brooke Shields and Benjamin Bratt. They’ll be filming in Thailand, which sounds like a dream! Our girl Miranda is super pumped to try her hand at romantic comedy and work with such fantastic co-stars.
Our dear Carly—err, Miranda—is about to turn the big 3-0 on May 14! She’s planning a massive party with her friends, and it sounds like it’ll be a blast. In a recent ET interview, she dished on her excitement for a ‘huge girls’ night’ and the chance to hang out with all her fave people. And for all you ‘iCarly’ revival watchers, keep your eyes peeled for some romantic sparks between Carly and her longtime friend Freddie Benson (played by Nathan Kress) in the upcoming season!
