American actress, Jennette McCurdy said she has quit acting after her mum passed away.
After the announcement about her quitting, McCurdy will definitely not appear in the planned reboot of “iCarly.”
In her words, “I ultimately quit after my mom passed away, because with her death kind of died a lot of her ideas for my life, and that was its own journey and a difficult one for sure,”
McCurdy, who, talked about ditching acting on the podcast and now hosts, “Empty Inside” played Sam Puckett for six seasons on the Nickelodeon show that ended in 2012.
Speaking about business and acting from childhood McCurdy narrated the importance of the role her mom played. In a recent episode with “Mom” star Anna Faris, the pair talked about the “fish out of water” concept where Faris shared how she first broke into the business after she started acting as a child.
McCurdy also said, “My mom put me in it when I was 6, and by sort of age, I guess, 10 or 11 I was the main financial support for my family.”
“It was very much the pressure of my family didn’t have a lot of money, and this was the way out,”
“which I actually think was helpful in driving me to some degree of success.”
She also disclosed that she never really wanted to be in the business and quit acting a few years ago to try writing and directing.
