“I feel like when I was little and people called me a role model, it was always very flattering, but it was also scary, because when you’re a little kid and someone calls you a role model, it’s like, ” Oh no, I don’t want to disappoint anyone.’ But you’re also not completely formed and you don’t really know how to be a role model. So there are nice things about it, but it is also challenging.’
Miranda rose to fame by appearing in iCarly and now she is preparing to reprise her character in the sitcom revival show!
Not only does she star in the revival, but she’s also one of the executive producers!

The new show reportedly takes place ten years after the first events of iCarly, with the same friends, all now in their twenties, trying to navigate family, friendship and love.
Speaking of which, Miranda also spoke about what she learned from the whole process, including things about herself and technical production details from behind the scenes.
“I’m going to help edit all the episodes. So just seeing all the stuff behind the scenes, even talking to the set designers from the beginning, figuring all that out and seeing how they put the sets together. These are all things I’ve never done before. And I also just feel like I’ve gotten better at speaking for myself because if you’re being asked questions all day long, ‘Where is this going? What should we do, and do you think your character would say this?’ – you really start to get used to it.’
The actress commented that she found the whole process as a whole really empowering!
