Miley Cyrus was not in the original pilot for Hannah Montana

When you think of Hannah Montana, you only think of Miley Cyrus in the role. But that was not always the case.

The Used to Be Young singer told the story about how it took her over a year to get the part.

Believe it or not, her first audition was for Lily, the best friend, and not the girl who was leading a double life. But as soon as they saw her audition, they asked her to put herself on tape for the lead role.

They loved her, but there was one big problem. At 11, she was much younger than the other people they cast. Therefore, they went with someone else and shot a pilot.

A year went by, and Disney called her up to audition again and see how much older she looked. This time, she looked old enough to join the cast. So they gave her the part, and the rest is Hollywood history.

But that was not the only reveal she made about casting for the show. She also shared the story about her real-life father, Billy Ray Cyrus, played her dad on the show. Casting thought Billy Ray, who was filming Doc in Toronto at the time, was cute, but they weren’t sure if it was possible for him to do both. Therefore, when Tish Cyrus heard that, she said she would make it happen. And she did.

And now you know Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus became Robby Ray Stewart and Hannah Montana.

Before Tyler Posey was the Teen Wolf in high school, he was in elementary school in Doc. How awwwwwdorable was the 8-year-old in that 2001 episode?

I can’t believe I recently streamed the whole series and didn’t know that it was him until now.

Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus’ marriage is over after 28 years, and I have an achy breaky heart for them.

According to TMZ, she filed on Wednesday in Tenessee. This is the second time she has asked for a divorce. The first time was in 2013. Three years before that, Billy Ray was the one who turned in the paperwork for a divorce.

Tish says in the filing that the estranged couple has not lived together for over two years, and she would like marital assets to be split equally.

They have five children together, Miley, 29, Braison, 27, Noah, 22, and Billy Ray adopted her two children, Brandi, 34, and sons Trace, 33, from a previous relationship.


Billy Ray Cyrus was at Miley’s wedding

There are many reasons to have an achy breaky heart, but this is not one of them. When Billy Ray Cyrus was nowhere to be seen in the first photos from Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s wedding on Sunday, people assumed that her father was not there. Turns out he was at the party in the USA along with the rest of their immediate family. Feel better now that you know that he was there?
