In 2000, Jeanette McCurdy landed a role on Mad TV, before appearing on the Makoto Yokoyama-directed action film Shadow Fury. She followed this up with a role in the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation episode titled “Cats in the Cradle.” Her next projects became My Daughter’s Tears and Hollywood Homicide.

McCurdy then joined the cast of iCarly as Sam, the lead character’s best friend who is often rebellious, lazy, and funny, and gets into bickering arguments with Freddie. Among her favorite pastimes are baking cookies, playing leapfrog, and slacking off work. She often gets Carly and herself into trouble, using her friend as a scapegoat for when things go awry. Sam also has a violent and aggressive streak, though she subtly hides it while still managing to intimidate others.
