The former Nickelodeon star enrolled at the University of Southern California in 2012 and decided to major in film. She told MTV News at the time, “I was picking between USC and NYU […] But I love acting, so I want to stay in L.A., so I can act at the same time.” (Photo: Instagram)
Miranda got her scream on in the 2015 horror flick “The Intruders,” with Austin Butler. The basic plot? Her character moves into a creepy house where the previous tenant went missing. You can probably fill in the blanks from there! (Photo: Instagram)
She’s been working with Betty White… at least for one episode. Miranda starred in “Crowded,” a comedy about two daughters who unexpectedly move back home just when their parents were ready to enjoy the empty nest. After one season, though, the show was canceled. (Photo: Instagram)
You might not have seen her in a recent movie, but we bet you’ve heard her! Cosgrove was the voice of Margo in “Despicable Me” and its sequels. (Who knew your favorite nerdy pre-teen was voiced by Miranda Cosgrove, age 25?!). (Photo: Instagram)
There are rumors that Miranda will be playing Ellen in “The Last of Us,” set to premiere sometime this year. The story focuses on a young mand and woman (Cosgrove) trying to defend themselves against zombies, other survivors, and the US government. (Photo: WENN)
Miranda is now a mom—not to a human, but to a cute little doggie. Her name is Penelope and she’s all over Cosgrove’s Instagram. “I know I post my dog too much but I just love her so much.” We get you, girl! (Photo: Instagram)
After nearly 6 years since the ending of iCarly, Miranda is still hanging with her friend Jennette McCurdy, who played her BFF Sam on the show. We love that they are still friends! (Photo: Instagram)
Not to mention that she still hangs with her on-screen brothers Drake Bell and Josh Peck from the show that officially kicked off her acting career, “Drake and Josh.” Maybe Megan wasn’t that bad after all! (Photo: Instagram)
