"I never really knew anything about money. Other than having a lot of it."
— Harper in iHate Carly

Harper Bettencourt is a main character on iCarly (2021). She is Carly Shay's best friend and roommate.


Harper is Carly's best friend and roommate whom she met in college. She grew up as the child of a wealthy family. After her family loses all their money, she has difficulty adjusting to her new life. She got a minimum wage job as a barista at Skybucks Coffee Bar and worked there for four years[10], but later quit.[4]

Harper is pansexual and has an "interesting and all over the place" dating life. She dreams of becoming a fashion stylist and dresses Carly in some unique outfits, such as a Björk swan dress.[11][12]

Harper's dreams of becoming a fashion stylist come true when she lands a job as a stylist for the singer Dutch. However, Harper later faces a difficult decision of whether to prioritize her career or follow her heart when she finds herself developing feelings for Dutch and learns that these feelings are mutual.
