Can you believe it's been almost 10 years since the first episode of Hannah Montana aired? The cult classic TV Show had garnered a large number of fans and was praised by children and adults alike. It was the highest rated Disney Channel show and each time one sees Miley Cyrus, sans her beautiful golden locks, twerking and channeling her crazy, sex-obsessed self, one wonders what went wrong! But it's not just Miley who has changed, for ten years is a long time and the entire cast of TV Show has undergone a significant change, so much, that even the die-hard fans of the show fail to recognise them.
So get to ready to feel nostalgic and have a look at "Then and Now" photos of the cast:
Miley Cyrus had initially auditioned for the role of Hannah Montana's best friend Lilly but was chosen to play the role of Hannah instead.
Emily Osment played the role of Lilly, Miley's best friend. Miley and Emily befriended each other and spend time playing, knitting and playing guitar on the set.
Jackson, Miley's brother on the show, quickly became one of the viewer's favorite characters, Though Jason played the role of a high school student, he was 29 when he started filming the show.
Mitchel Musso played the role of Miley's overenthusiastic friend Oliver. He had to leave the show in its final season to focus on his career in music.
Rico, together with Jackson provided some really interesting and hilarious storylines to the show. Rico is now a Hipster and can be spotted hanging out with Willow Smith and the Jenners.
Billy Ray Cyrus played the role of Miley's father on the show. In a controversial interview with GQ magazine, Billy regretted that Hannah Montana ever happened and said that the show "ruined his life"! "Heck, yeah. I'd erase it all in a second if I could." Billy said.
Cody was cast to play Miley's love interest on the show. The cut and charming young lad is all grown up and continues to be a heartthrob for the ladies.
