You obviously remember Jeannette McCurdy playing the part of ‘Sam’ in Nickelodeon’s ‘ICarly’. What you may not know is that at only 30 years old, she has completely retired from the industry. Her decision involves many problems she had while acting but now she has revealed one of them.
After ‘ICarly’ finished, McCurdy went on to star a spinoff of the series as well as a spinoff of ‘Victorious’. There she was the protagonist of the show, along with now singer Ariana Grande, who played ‘Cat’ in the Nickelodeon universe.
More news on Ariana:
There have been extensive reports that they did not get along and now Jeannette has revealed that she resented Ariana for a particular reason. According to her statements, the network did not want her to star on any other roles but they did let Grande. Seeing the singer getting fame, attention and stardom, McCurdy had enough.
Will Jeannette come back to acting?
The answer for now is negative:
“I’m so ashamed of the parts I’ve done in the past. … 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 cheesy, embarrassing thing.”
