Miranda Cosgrove Recalls Having Her First Kisses on iCarly with James Maslow and Nathan Kress

Years after experiencing her first kisses while working on iCarly, Miranda Cosgrove still looks back on the once "uncomfortable" moments and laughs.
In PEOPLE's exclusive first look at the Paramount + iCarly reunion special, Cosgrove talks about some of the kissing scenes she filmed - with actor James Maslow and co-star Nathan Kress - in the original series.
"I have two funny memories [from that time]," begins the 28-year-old. "My first kiss I ever had in my entire life was with James Maslow in the episode where he was lying in a hospital bed and I had to kiss him while he was passed out."
She continues, "My second kiss that I've ever had in my entire life was with [my co-star] Nathan on the show. Nathan had a girlfriend or girl on set that day who he liked when we did saw us kissing. "

Because of the off-screen presence of Kress's love interest on set that day, Cosgrove says, "It was so uncomfortable!"
Cosgrove played as Carly Shay in Nickelodeon's iCarly over six seasons, which aired from 2007 to 2012. The popular children's show featured teenage Carly Shay, who navigated the ups and downs of the internet star as she worked with friends to make her internet show of the same name a success.

In addition to Cosgrove, iCarly also played 28-year-old Kress (Freddie Benson), Jennette McCurdy (Sam Puckett), Jerry Trainor (Spencer Shay) and Noah Munck (Gibby).
In December it was announced that an iCarly revival series was in the works on ViacomCBS's Paramount + streaming service, with Cosgrove, Kress and Trainor, 44, all returning.
McCurdy, who confirmed she quit acting earlier this year, will not appear in the revival. Newcomers Laci Mosley and Jaidyn Triplett will be there. Mosley, 29, will serve as Carly's new best friend, Harper, in McCurdy's absence.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Cosgrove recently revealed how the new show will tackle the whereabouts of McCurdy's character.
"We touch a lot about the whole relationship with Sam and where Sam is in the pilot," said Cosgrove. "And then we mention them a little bit throughout the season, so we'll definitely explain that on the show."
The iCarly Reunion will be streamed on Paramount + on Friday and broadcast on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET on Nick at Nite. The iCarly revival premieres on June 17th on the streaming service.
