Born in California on June 26, 1992 in the Garden Grove Area, iCarly star Jennette McCurdy rose to prominence playing the adorable, skeptic Sam Puckett on Nickelodeon’s innovative hit series iCarly. She now acts in her own spin off show on the same network known as Sam and Cat where she plays similar role and acts as a central character rather than a backup actress. The Nickelodeon star gets about $50,000 for every episode in the entire shooting schedule, and the overall Jennette McCurdy net value equals 3 million dollars. McCurdy has appeared as a guest celebrity in several other family focused shows, mainly on Nickelodeon, but also on related channels like ABC Family.
Some of her most notable television appearances have been in shows including True Jackson VP, Malcolm in the Middle, Zoey 101, Will & Grace, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, The Inside and Judging Amy, Strong Medicine. She commenced her acting career at a very young age of 8, on MADtv; she was motivated to become an actress after viewing Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope which had Harrison Ford in the lead role. McCurdy had the opportunity to act with her role model, Harrison Ford, 11 years ago in a film called Hollywood Homicide. Some other prominent characters for McCurdy include, role of Bertha in Fred: The Movie based on a You Tube series about Fred Figglehorn, Lincoln Heights, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. She has had a good character to play on the iCarly series which airs since 2007 on Nickelodeon.
She was chosen for a Young Artist Award for both her characters in 2008 on iCarly, and for her exceptional act in the role of Dory Sorenson in a movie in Television, The Last Day of Summer. In 2009 she won the Teen Choice Award in the Best TV Sidekick category for her acting on iCarly after being nominated.
She has been a fellow member of the film fraternity since 2000, and an energetic member of the music business since 2008. McCurdy was also involved in a play called Not That Far Away and she is a prominent backer of several foundations such as the Cody Waters Foundation. She was also actively involved in campaigns such as bringing child soldiers into mainstream society. She is also involved with the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Invisible Children Inc. Group. With all of these achievements, the fact that Jennette McCurdy of Nickelodeon equals 3 million dollars is not at all a surprise; in fact it is quite predictable.
Presently McCurdy serves as an Ambassador for Starlight Children’s Foundation, a foundation that inspires other novice people to pledge their time, resources and energy to support other kids and help Starlight to improve the lives of extremely ill children. Like many other young stars of her generation, McCurdy has also tried to enter the music arena.
In June of 2012 she released her first album, called Jennette McCurdy. Time will speak as to whether her music career will be as fruitful as her acting background or not. Although the Nickelodeon star, Jennette McCurdy equals 3 million, the net worth should have been more than that because of her overall contributions to the social life of the USA.
