NJSP Graduate to Appear on Nickelodeon Saturday

Christine Barger

Fans of the Nicklodeon show iCarly will get a treat this Saturday when a local resident appears as a guest.

Christine Barger, a 1998 graduate of North Judson-San Pierre High School, will guest star as a bully on the show that will air on Nickelodeon Saturday night at 8 p.m.

Barger said she is excited to have this fun role that features a great cast and crew, though she admitted that it was weird to play a teenager with cast members who are actually teens.

She is also a ventriloquist and performs many shows in the Los Angeles area. She has had many minor roles, including playing the character of “Psycho Blogger” in the movie Made of Honor starring Patrick Dempsey. She has had another role this year in the TV show 90210.

Barger is the daughter of Robert and Franna Barger of Winamac. She majored in theatre at Ball State University before moving to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of acting on television and film projects.
