How does iCarly Season 1 differ from Season 2?

In Season 1, we were establishing where the original characters are now and who the new characters were. In Season 2, we see the cast go through everyday issues and find their way through them.

What were some takeaways from the first season that you carried into the second season when filming?

I remember when I first started, I was scared about blocking. (That’s when you practice where your character goes in the scene.) I was so nervous because l didn't know how to memorize that. But after plenty of practice, it just felt right. The lines would automatically line up with the movements. So then I got used to it, and it became easy for Season 2!

Was it easier to film this season or do you still have to be fully masked on set?

We had to be fully masked, and we would get tested three times a week! The pandemic really did change everything on sets, but we’re always together, even with the masks.

What was it like working with original cast member Jeremy Rowley?

It was so cool! Being familiar with the original show and his character, it was a real take-back moment for me. He is so different from his character. He is the sweetest guy, and I have no idea how he turns into Lewbert so quickly!

What can viewers expect from the new season?

Tons of laughs, nostalgia, and, of course, craziness! With the original characters back for “iObject, Lewbert!” and Spencer getting wilder in every new episode, the viewers are in for a ride!

How do you see your character developing in Season 2?

I like the way Millicent is progressing in this second season. She’s going through the troubles of a normal pre-teen girl, and I loved filming that side of her. I found filming those types of episodes extremely relatable because those situations were what l go through all the time.

Is there anything you still hope to see happen for Millicent if the show gets a Season 3?

I think it would be really sweet to see Freddie have an official adoption ceremony for Millicent. But of course, it’s iCarly, so everything would have to go terribly wrong.

What are some memorable behind-the-scenes moments with the cast members?

This one is an inside joke that will never get old. In Season 1, I had a cupcake business, Millicent’s Minions! And we had probably 50 cupcakes in boxes that you couldn’t see, so I grabbed one. It was red velvet with cream cheese (the best flavor ever), and l loved it so much that l saved some and put it backstage on a shelf.

After a take, Jerry came backstage and saw me licking the wrapper while it was still on the shelf, so l wasn’t using my hands. Everyone came backstage to see me licking a cupcake wrapper with no hands and now, no matter what l say, that always comes up!
