Does Jennette McCurdy Have a Twin Sister?

The answer is no. It’s an honest mistake to think the American actress has a twin sister seeing that Sam Puckett, the character she portrays on iCarly and Sam & Cat, has a twin named Melanie. Melanie appeared in the episode iTwins (season 2, episode 23) of iCarly and the episode #Twinfection (season 1, episode 18) of Sam & Cat. However, Melanie is played by no other than Jennette McCurdy herself.

In real life, McCurdy has three older brothers but no twin sister. In the end, it was all about camera tricks and the magic of fiction. Kudos to Nickelodeon!

After working for over seven years with Nickelodeon on iCarly (2007-2012) and Sam & Cat (2013-2014), the actress left the network. In her 2022 memoir I’m Glad My Mom Died, Jennette McCurdy addresses the struggles she faced while being a child star. She has walked away from acting and has made a career writing and directing short films while also hosting a podcast.
