Bemelmans is impossibly adult but with a childlike whimsy, not unlike McCurdy herself, who turned 23 earlier this year. She was in New York for the week promoting her Netflix show, Between , a post-apocalyptic YA tragedy that was picked up for a second season. Sam was the brash deuteragonist to the carefree, slightly prissy Carly Shay played by Miranda Cosgrove. It was a move guaranteed to produce ratings, and it did. McCurdy was getting a taste of what happens to female teen stars when they reveal a sexuality of their own.

Carly Shay played by Miranda Cosgrove is a year old girl who is the star of her own web show helped by her two friends, Sam Puckett and Freddie Benson , iCarly. She lives with her year old brother Spencer in Seattle. Her father is in the Navy and is stationed on a submarine. Her grandfather lives 90 minutes away in Yakima. Even though Carly is considered a "local celebrity", which sometimes helps her get out of sticky situations, Carly is still an average teenage girl and never lets "fame" get to her head. Carly sticks up for Freddie when Sam ridicules him, and tries to encourage Sam to stay out of trouble.

Good role models are sometimes hard to come by, but lucky for "iCarly" fans, there's Sam Puckett. She may have had some trouble with the law and basically every person she met, but the girl kept ribs in her purse. And if that's not heroic, well, what the heck is?
