A recent interview by Yahoo was posted on Monday 26th, 2012 where they asked the iCarly cast members Jennette McCurdy and Nathan Kress to share some of their plans for the future and their thoughts on being role models.
Q: You recently filmed an episode with the hot new band from England, One Direction. What was that like?
Jennette: Great! They are sweet, easy-going, and fun dudes.
Q: One parent of a fan wanted to know do you see Sam growing up and becoming a good role model on the show? Any hints as to what we can expect to see from Sam in the near future?
Jennette: Sam’s a great role model! She’s confident, loyal to her friends, smart, and true to who she is.
Q: You have an album coming out sometime this year. One fan wanted to know how old you were when you starting writing songs?
Jennette: I was definitely in my single digits. I would write poems and think up melodies to them later.
Q: In one interview you mentioned a number of popular country western singers and bands as being among your favorite musicians and music, and even helping you with the new album. Will there be a strong “country” component to the music?
Jennette: The music that I’ve made in the past has had strong contemporary country roots, but I think moving on in music, I will branch out from that a bit.
Q: One fan would like to know what is your favorite “thing” about acting?
Jennette: Making people feel not alone.
Q: Do you feel you are a role model to other kids who are watching you on TV? If so, what do you do to live up to that “title”?
Jennette: Being a role model is cool and a great honor. I’m grateful to be considered one and will live up to that title by encouraging kids to eat their Wheaties and brush their teeth often.
Q: All work and no play, make “Jack and Jill” dull. What are some of your favorite things to do when you aren’t working?
Jennette: I love going to the movie theatre, seeing live comedy, and going to amusement parks.
