Bio

Miley Cyrus is an American actress and pop singer-songwriter best known for her starring role as Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel sitcom Hannah Montana, from 2006-2011.

Cyrus is the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife Tish. She has five siblings - two half-brothers, a half-sister and a younger brother and sister.

Her birth name is Destiny Hope, given to her by her parents who hoped she would achieve greatness. Her childhood nickname was Smiley, as she had a cheerful disposition which was eventually shortened to Miley.

Cyrus was initially educated at Heritage Elementary School in Tennessee. When she turned eight, her family moved to Toronto, Canada where Cyrus' father Billy Ray took a role in the TV series Doc.

It was around this time that Cyrus decided she wanted to act too. Her first role came alongside her father in Doc and she also scored a small role in Tim Burton's Big Fish (2003).

In 2005, Cyrus was cast as the lead in the Disney series Hannah Montana, about a teen leading a double life as a pop star. Again her father acted alongside her. The show was a smash and hit records, sell-out tours and merchandising deals soon followed. Cyrus became a teen superstar.

Following the success of Hannah Montana, Cyrus made the move into other roles - including playing Ronnie Miller in The Last Song (2010) and Lola in LOL (2012) alongside Demi Moore.
