Jennette Michelle Faye McCurdy is an American singer-songwriter, filmmaker film, and former actress. She is best known for her roles on Nickelodeon as Sam Puckett on iCarly and Sam & Cat, the spin-off of iCarly and Victorious. She has also appeared in a number of other television series, including True Jackson VP, Zoey 101, Malcolm In The Middle, Will & Grace, Strong Medicine, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, The Inside and Judging Amy.

She appeared in the iCarly/Victorious crossover episode iParty with Victorious and the Victorious episode Crazy Ponnie, guest starring as Ponnie.

In June 2008, McCurdy announced on her official web site that she was working on her debut album. The first single, "So Close" was released on March 10, 2009. The second single, "Homeless Heart", was released on May 19. The song was released in honor of McCurdy's recently deceased friend Cody Waters, who died at the age of 9 from brain cancer, and 20% of the proceeds were donated to the Cody Waters Foundation. She met Cody Waters through St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. In mid-2009, McCurdy signed with country music label Capitol Records Nashville. On April 16, 2010, samples of select songs from McCurdy's upcoming debut country album were released online. The song clips were released in order for fans to vote for which one they believed should be McCurdy's first single. "Not That Far Away" received the most votes, and was released to country radio on May 24, 2010 and iTunes shortly after on June 1. Capitol Nashville released an EP on August 17, 2010 which included "Not That Far Away" and four new songs, "Stronger", "Put Your Arms Around Someone", and "Break Your Heart". The iTunes version included "Me with You" as a bonus track. "Stronger" was later included on Now That's What I Call Music! Vol. 35, released on August 31, 2010. McCurdy's second single, "Generation Love", was released as a digital download on March 22, 2011, followed by its release to radio April 25, 2011. Capitol Nashville released McCurdy's self-named extended play on February 8, 2012 at clothing retailer Justice. The album was released to iTunes on June 1.

In February 2021, McCurdy revealed that she did not see herself returning to acting, stating that she has been "ashamed" of most of the roles she had played. She went on to say that she initially began acting to provide for her family, but quit after her mother died.
