In this Australian exclusive conversation, Jennette dives into her struggles as a former child actor—including eating disorders, addiction, and a complicated relationship with her overbearing mother—and how she retook control of her life.
Best known for her star making lead roles in iCarly (opposite Miranda Cosgrove) and Sam & Cat (alongside Ariana Grande), actor, director, and writer Jennette McCurdy (she/her) released her heartbreaking and hilarious memoir I’m Glad My Mom Died in August last year.
Jennette McCurdy was six years old when she had her first acting audition. Her mother’s dream was for her only daughter to become a star, and Jennette would do anything to make her mother happy. Join us for this intimate event as Jennette tells us how she triumphed over trauma and found humour and wit in the telling of her remarkable story.
