Miley Ray Cyrus (real name Destiny Hope Cyrus) had a happy childhood. Her father was a country singer Billy Ray Cyrus and her godmother is a famous singer Dolly Parton. She has 4 brothers and sisters. Miley’s family moved to Toronto when she turned 8, because her father was working on the series Doc. Miley says that she knew she’d become an actress after visiting her father’s movie set for the first time. Cyrus enrolled at the Toronto drama theater school, where she learned to act and to sing.
When Miley was just 7 years old, she landed a minor role in a movie Big Fish. 4 years later, she auditioned for the Disney series Hannah Montana. Miley was hoping to get the role of the main character’s best friend, but she landed a leading role. Cyrus’s mom became her agent. Hannah Montana became a big hit and Miley turned into a teen idol.
