If Hannah Montana were to be played by another star, what would happen?

The question is on everyone's mind after Disney fans discover a must-see TikTok from the show's casting director.

When Miley Cyrus made her debut as Hannah Montana on Disney Channel's Hannah Montana in 2006, she won many hearts.

Even though Hannah Montana's fanbase has evolved significantly since she first donned that blonde wig, her dedication remains the same.

Earlier this week, a TikTok video claiming that the Spanish-Mexican singer Belinda almost landed the role went viral. The casting director of the series then set the record straight with her video. 

Lisa London said she discovered Miley Cyrus on TikTok on Aug. 17. My apologies, but Belinda, who is gorgeous by the way, was never considered for the Hannah role.

Taking out a piece of paper dated May 6, 2005, Lisa pointed out that Miley's name was next to Taylor Momsen and Daniella Monet's.

'These were the final three girls that auditioned out of over 1200 girls.'Lisa clarified that 'Chloe' was the name that they initially wanted to give the character, so they put it next to each girl's name.

According to her, Chloe Stewart was first called Miley Stewart before it was changed to Miley Stewart. Although Taylor and Daniella didn't win the part of Hannah, both found success in major shows in the years that followed.

She appeared in Gossip Girl with Penn Badgley, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, and Chace Crawford two years after auditioning. Her 2009 band The Pretty Reckless was also formed by the 29-year-old. 

In addition to Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, and Leon Thomas III, Daniella appeared in Nickelodeon's Victorious.
