The iCarly Star You Likely Forgot Appeared On CSI

Running from 2000 to 2015, "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" had many notable guest stars, but it's easy to forget who might've appeared on this iconic television series. The main cast included George Eads, Eric Szmanda, Robert David Hall, Paul Guilfoyle, Jorja Fox, David Berman, Marg Helgenberger, Wallace Langham, William Petersen, Gary Dourdan, Archie Kao, Elisabeth Harnois, Ted Danson, Liz Vassey, Elisabeth Shue, Laurence Fishburne, Jon Wellner, Louise Lombard, and Alex Carter.

The show followed an elite team of police forensic evidence investigation experts as they work their cases in Las Vegas.

However, you might not remember that there was an "iCarly" star that made an appearance on the popular crime series. The beloved Nickelodeon series, which aired from 2007-2012, followed Carly Shay (played by Miranda Cosgrove) as she hosted her own homegrown web show. In 2021, fans were thrilled that "iCarly" was revived for Paramount+. It was just renewed for a third season!

Jennette McCurdy appeared in Season 2, Episode 20 of CSI

So which "iCarly" star was it? Jennette McCurdy appeared in Season 2, Episode 20, "Cat's in the Cradle..." as Jackie Trent. According to Fandom, the character was the younger sister of Jessica Trent. The episode told the story of an old lady with over 20 cats in her house who was found dead with a stab wound in her chest (via IMDb).

On "iCarly," McCurdy played Sam Puckett, who was Carly's best friend and web show co-host. However, she has not reprised her role in the new revival. Previously, McCurdy also starred as the character in "Sam & Cat," which was on Nickelodeon from 2013 to 2014. The former actress recently released a memoir titled "I'm Glad My Mom Died," which discusses her struggles as a child actor, including eating disorders, addiction, and a complicated relationship with her overbearing mother, leading to how she eventually took back control of her life.
