Miranda Cosgrove stars as Carly Shay in Nickelodeon's hit TV series iCarly, the highest-rated program on all of TV in its time slot with kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14 and the only scripted series in TV history to incorporate videos created by kids in the viewing audience. In the series, Miranda plays a teenager who produces webcasts from a makeshift loft studio with pals Sam (Jennette McCurdy) and Freddie (Nathan Kress).
Cosgrove, 15, nabbed her first TV series and feature film roles at age nine. She was cast first as Megan Parker, the deceptively sweet, scamming sister on Nickelodeon's "Drake & Josh'" and soon after as Summer Hathaway, the over-achieving preppy manager of Jack Black's rock band on the big screen in Richard Linklater's "School of Rock." Miranda's other film credits include the 2005 feature-film release "Yours, Mine and Ours" from Paramount Pictures/Nickelodeon Movies and "Keeping up with the Steins."
