Circa 2006, an eleven-year-old Miley Cyrus auditioned for the role of Hannah Montana's best friend, Lily. Cyrus nearly never got the part due to her being a bit too small and young to fill the role... However, after considering her impressive singing ability as well as her undeniable acting skills, casting agents decided to make her the star.

Hannah Montana became a family project when Miley's dad, famous country singer Billy Ray Cyrus agreed to feature. The characters were then written to match the lives and personalities of Miley and Billy Ray, they even shared the same names.

Or at least that's what Disney wanted us to believe. For young Miley the split personality of Miley the character, Hannah Montanna the alter-ego and Miley the person must have felt a little confusing at times. At only twelve-years-old Cyrus was launched into stardom.

"First of all if you knew anything about hair it’s the position she’s in that’s why it looks that way, it’s 100% even and she also had it straightened so it’s more severe which I actually like," she wrote.
