Miranda Cosgrove welcomed summer with a sunny, outdoor photo featuring an adorable dog. Sharing the picture with her 8.4 million Instagram followers, the picture went viral and has more than 100,000 likes. The former iCarly star celebrated her 26th birthday in May, and though she is an adult now, many people continue to remember her as the young Nickelodeon star they grew up with.
Miranda continues to work and does voice-over performances in addition to her acting. She is the voice of Margo in the Despicable franchise and starred in the official video for “Happier” by Marshmello featuring Bastille. She was also in Pharrell’s video for “Happy.”
While many people haven’t seen Miranda on the silver screen as much as they would like to, she has had a good reason for staying out of the public eye.
Miranda homeschooled and then entered NYU. She originally majored in film but later studied psychology. While Miranda continues to work there’s no question that her fans want to see her starring in a television series again.
In the photo below, Miranda looks cute and sporty wearing a white tee-shirt and a teal colored skort.
She captioned the photo with a simple, “Hello Summer ☀️.”
In addition to Miranda’s acting, she is an avid animal lover and activist. She partnered with Oceana for a public service announcement and swam with dolphins as a way to raise awareness for their survival.
Miranda spoke about the experience in a public statement.
“When I first entered the water, the dolphins were playing with each other, swimming side by side, and they were constantly singing to each other – I could hear it! After a while they started to approach me and I could feel them look me in the eye. It was one of the best experiences of my life. Swimming with wild dolphins made it so clear that these intelligent and social animals need their use of sound to survive, and I’m so happy to be working with Oceana to protect them.”
Those who follow Miranda on her social media accounts know that she has a deep love for her pets and cats too. She fosters kittens as well.
Do you hope to see Miranda return to the silver screen soon? She will appear in the upcoming movie 3022; however, a premiere date hasn’t yet been released.
