Miranda Cosgrove is just weeks away from filming the final episode of her hit Nick show, “iCarly,” but the actress got a sense of what it might feel like to say goodbye when she recently hit the set of “SNL.”
Cosgrove was on hand as Kristen Wiig departed “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend, and she couldn’t help but wonder if the end of her show will be as emotional. The teen star was in town taping an episode of “iCarly” with Jimmy Fallon when she and her castmates decided to stop by the “SNL” set to watch the Mick Jagger-hosted finale, which also happened to be Wiig’s farewell .
“I’m a huge Kristen Wiig fan,” Miranda told MTV News this week. “I love her. I was super-excited to go to see her last episode ’cause I’ve never been to ’SNL’ before and it was a pretty cool one to get to go to. … It was sad it was her last episode and I was kind of thinking in the back of my mind that we’re about to finish [our show]. So it was definitely a sad kind of moment, but I’m glad I got to go with the whole cast and we got to have such a good time.”
The trip to New York City created a lot of fond memories that Cosgrove said she’ll take with her. “It was so much fun, like, getting to be on the plane with everybody. Jerry [Trainor], he met Sean Penn on the plane and he had him sign his Vans,” she recalled. “I don’t know; it’s kind of like an ’iCarly’ episode being out here. We all took a carriage ride the other day, we went to FAO Schwarz; we went to ’SNL,’ the finale. We’ve had the best time together here.”
With New York City behind them, the “iCarly” crew will film their last episode in June, marking the end of a super successful five-season run on Nick. The series finale airs in November.
