Short bio: 

Jennette Michelle Faye McCurdy was born on June 26, 1992 in Long Beach, California. McCurdy started her acting career in 2000 at the age of eight on MADtv.[4] Since then she appeared in television series, including CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Malcolm in the Middle, Lincoln Heights, Will & Grace, Penguins of Madagascar, Zoey 101, True Jackson, VP, Law and Order SVU, Medium, Judging Amy, The Inside, Karen Sisco, Over There and Close to Home. In 2003, she had the chance to act with her inspiration, Harrison Ford in the movie Hollywood Homicide. In 2005, she was nominated for a Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Television Series – Guest Starring Young Actress for her performance in Strong Medicine as Hailey Campos.

From 2007 to 2012, she had a starring role in the Nickelodeon TV series iCarly opposite Miranda Cosgrove, Nathan Kress, Jerry Trainor, and Noah Munck, as one of Carly Shay's best friends Sam Puckett. In 2008, she was nominated for a Young Artist Award for her work on iCarly, and for her performance as Dory Sorenson in the TV movie The Last Day of Summer. She was nominated for a 2009 Teen Choice Award, in the Favorite TV Sidekick category for her work on iCarly. She played Bertha in Fred: The Movie, a movie based on a YouTube series about Fred Figglehorn. On December 1, 2011, she signed into United Talent Agency's cast of actors and performers for film, TV, music and other areas, to a deal starring her in a pilot vehicle. She was previously with Creative Artists Agency and Larry Galper. McCurdy recently stared alongside Ariana Grande in the Nickelodeon series Sam and Cat, reprising her role as Sam Puckett, with Grande reprising her role as Cat Valentine. The series' plot centered on the girls becoming roommates and starting their own babysitting business. The show was cancelled in the summer of 2014 after McCurdy had sexy photos released and she skipped out on the Kids' Choice Awards show while fighting for a higher salary to stay for a second season.

In 2017, she quit acting and decided to pursue a career in writing and directing. From February to March 2020, I'm Glad My Mom Died, her tragicomedy one-woman show, was performed in theaters in Los Angeles and New York City; plans for further dates were postponed and ultimately canceled due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2020, she began hosting an interview podcast, Empty Inside. In 2022, she released a memoir, I'm Glad My Mom Died, describing her career as a child star and the abusive behavior of her mother, who died in 2013.
