Miranda Cosgrove Explains How 'iCarly' Prepared Her For Her New Show

Miranda Cosgrove taking on hosting duties on her new show Mission Unstoppable!

The 26-year-old actress spilled on how her role on iCarly got her ready for the program, which highlights fascinating female innovators who are on the cutting edge in the STEM field.

“It’s kind of funny ’cause when I was on the show iCarly, we pretended to be hosts basically, so it’s sort of funny now that I am hosting something. It’s kind of silly and wacky like that too,” Miranda told Seventeen.

She continued, “Even though I’m a lot older now, it’s fun to get to do all the different fun and lighthearted segments on the show. I’m definitely enjoying it and I don’t feel like it was too much of a stretch, even though it really is my first time hosting.”

Miranda added she wanted to help create a show that had never existed while she was growing up.

“For so many years, I was on a kid’s television show and on a kid’s television network. I think it really excited me to be doing something so positive for young girls…It was something that I knew young girls would be seeing and that maybe they realize all the different job opportunities that fall under STEM since there really wasn’t a show like that for me when I was little,” Miranda explained.

Mission Unstoppable is currently airing on CBS.
