'The Kissing Booth 2' Star Taylor Zakhar Perez Originally Had a Bigger Part on 'iCarly'

In 2012, then up-and-coming actor Taylor Zakhar Perez received one of his first roles on Nickelodeon's hit comedy series iCarly.

In the episode "iGet Banned", Taylor played Keith, a character who is supposed to go on a date with Carly (Miranda Cosgrove). He has one line and is only briefly seen when T-Bo (BooG!e) is showing Carly his new lemon launcher which he purchased from the internet. Keith walks in saying, "Hey Carly, I brought--" and is interrupted when T-Bo accidentally hits him down with a lemon. Although it was only small role, the Kissing Booth 2 star recently revealed that the role was originally meant to be much bigger!

“I had a whole eight pages of this multi-camera with Miranda Cosgrove, and [I was] so stoked. I felt like I'd made it,” he told Teen Vogue. “The day before, they cut the entire role. They called me and were like, ‘Hey, you're just going to get hit with a lemon launcher and you're going to say, 'Hey Carly, what's up?' I was devastated.”

“Nickelodeon, if you can hear me, you did me dirty,” Taylor added.
