  • Maree's first tweet was on February 17, 2013.[3]
  • Maree's Twitter account was verified on March 1, 2013.
  • She selected the name of her fandom to be "Mareens".[4]
  • This is actually the second role she played in Dan Schneider sitcoms. She played Josh's driving teacher in the Drake & Josh episode "Driver's License".
  • She isn't a main cast member, although she can be judged as so. Her character, Nona, is a protagonist, like the main characters, and she appeared in #BlooperEpisode, in which only main cast members played a role on the blooper episodes of Schneider's previous shows, iCarly and Victorious. She was also present at the Kids' Choice Awards, when Sam & Cat won "Favorite Show", while usually, recurring cast members don't attend the Kids' Choice Awards. Zoran Korach, who portrays Goomer, is in the same situation as well.
