Miranda Cosgrove and the lovable Minions took Miami by storm this week prior to the release of “Despicable Me 3” and we had a chance to sit down with Miranda herself (Voice of Margo) and chat about her role in the film. The setting was beachside at Nikki Beach where we had a nice set up as well as some cool Minions and Despicable Me toys to keep us entertained throughout the day. Miranda has come up big since we first saw her in “School of Rock” starring Jack Black where we feel she stole the show! She has starred as Megan Parker in Nick3lodeon’s “Drake and Josh” as their little sister who tormented them and never got in to trouble. That show lasted for 4 seasons and then she went on to headline her own show “iCarly” for another 7 seasons. Those shows were huge hits with adults and kids alike and continued Miranda’s love for comedy. She has done various voice over work which brings us to the “Despicable Me” world where she is the voice of Margo. The oldest of the 3 girls Margo is the most responsible of the trio and have all that teen angst built up in her but she also puts family first and in the third film really finds a relationship with Lucy her new mom and it really comes through on screen.
During our talk which you can listen to in the link below we discussed a variety of topics from her role as Margo to balancing her time at school and work. She is currently attending the University of Southern California studying film and now screenwriting. A big fan of comedy she is hoping that one of her pilots gets picked up so she can flex her funny bone and the comedy she loves so much. One thing she mentioned that stuck out was her love of comedy and getting together with her friends and writing up ideas and stories to hopefully one day see them come to life. Having Kristen Wiig on set during the “Despicable Me” films has really helped her and motivated her. She talked a lot about the funny women in Hollywood who also write and make a name for themselves. We sure would love to see her maybe on SNL or something on that level because we are missing out! All you have to do is watch her in her early years and see how at such an early age Miranda was able to make us laugh with her own style of humor. Give “School of Rock” a watch and even look up some “Drake and Josh” episodes or “iCarly” episodes and you will she what we are talking about.
“Despicable Me 3” is now Playing!
