Miley Cyrus has penned a touching note to Hannah Montana on the 15th anniversary of the show’s premiere.
The teen sitcom ran for four seasons between 2006 to 2011.
In a handwritten letter on Hannah Montana stationery, Miley wrote: “Hi Hannah – It’s been a while. Fifteen years to be exact. Since the first time I slid those blonde bangs over my forehead in the best attempt to conceal my identity. Then slipped into a puke-pink terry cloth robe with a bedazzled ‘HM’ over the heart. I didn’t know then … that is where you would live forever. Not just in mine, but in millions of people around the world.
“Although you are considered to be an ‘alter ego,’ in reality, there was a time in my life when you held more of my identity in your glove than I did in my bare hands.”
Miley wrote about the highs and lows she experienced in her life while filming the show.
“I experienced falling in love for the first time in those years,” she wrote. “Embarrassingly started my period in a pair of white capri’s of course on the day a ‘cute guy’ was cast and asked to have lunch with me. Instead, I spent it in the bathroom with my mum sobbing and scrambling to find a pair of fresh denim.”
Miley paid tribute to the character, writing: “You have all my love and utmost gratitude. Breathing life into you for those six years was an honour. I am indebted not only to you Hannah but to any and everyone who believed in me from the beginning. You all have my loyalty and deepest appreciation until the end.”
Miley ended the note with: “I love you Hannah Montana. Forever, Miley.”
