Her television show was so popular, that her contract was projected to pay her approximately 200 thousand dollars per episode, plus bonuses.

One noteworthy achievement that Miranda Cosgrove has reached is the fact that she was the highest paid child celebrity in the United States at one point during the year of 2012.


Anybody that watched Nickelodeon in the early 2000s would certainly recognize Miranda Cosgrove from the hit television show Drake and Josh. She was the television sister of two of the most popular figures on Nickelodeonduring this time frame.

Her popularity skyrocketed in the later seasons of Drake and Josh and sparked the possibility of creating her own television show on Nickelodeon after the final season aired.

When the final season of Drake and Josh came to a close, it wasn’t too long before Miranda found herself starring on iCarly. She had finally transitioned from one popular television role to another, co-starring with JennetteMcCurdy for several seasons of iCarly.

She started modeling and acting at the age of three, eventually appearing in popular commercials for top brands like McDonald’s and Mello Yello.

Eventually she got her big break, Landing the role of Megan Parker on the hit television show presented by Nickelodeon known as Drake and Josh.

As her character spiked in popularity towards the end of the series, the idea was proposed that she would take the lead role of another Nickelodeon television show in the near future known as iCarly in late 2007.

This role would solidify her success as a child actress for Nickelodeon. Many more opportunities would open up for the rest of her career as she began studying at the University of Southern California in late 2012.
