What The ‘Hannah Montana’ Cast Has Been Up To

It’s been ten years since Hannah Montana premiered on the Disney Channel and we were all introduced to Billy Ray Cyrus’ wide-eyed and innocent daughter, Miley. For four seasons, fans ugly cried, sang the cheesy songs at the top of their lungs, and longed for Hannah Montana’s closet.

The show went off the air five years ago, but while everyone on the planet is pretty much aware of what happened to Miley Cyrus, the same can’t be said about the rest of the crew, so, with that in mind, lets take a look at what the cast has been up to.. But, let’s be honest, we miss the crew (including Cyrus’ lovebirds Jake Ryan and Jesse).

Hannah Montana/Miley Stewart — Miley Cyrus

Of course, Miley Cyrus hasn’t left the spotlight since the show ended five years ago. Miley Stewart’s secret career was nowhere near as controversial as Cyrus’ career after the show (Hannah Montana definitely never wore pasties). Moving away from Hannah Montana fame, Cyrus opted for a more grown-up sound. She released the album “Bangerz” in 2013, featuring attention-grabbing singles and music videos like “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball.” The album was nominated for a Grammy.

Now, 23, Cyrus finds herself reportedly engaged to actor Liam Hemsworth. The two starred alongside each other in The Last Song in 2010 and became engaged in 2012 before calling it quits in 2013. Rumors began flying in January that the engagement was back on. Cyrus is currently a judge on The Voice.

Lilly Truscott – Emily Osment

Lilly Truscott was Miley Stewart’s best friend, and Hannah Montana’s eccentric, colorfully-dressed sidekick.

She has kept busy following the end of the show doing voice overs for Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2, Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta!, and Family Guy. Osment recently wrapped up a powerful arc as a young and troubled drug addict on CBS’ Mom opposite Allison Janney and Anna Faris. She currently stars in the Freeform comedy Young & Hungry, where the 24-year-old plays Gabi Diamond, a young food blogger. The sitcom premiered in 2014.

Oliver Oken – Mitchel Musso

Best pal to Miley and Lilly, Oliver completed the BFF trio. Of course, he wasn’t as close to Miley as Lilly was, but Oliver proved to be the perfect guy friend to the ladies. He eventually dated Lilly, earning the pet name Olly-Pop (Yes, Olly-Pop).

In 2011, Musso briefly hosted Disney Channel hidden-camera show “PrankStars” and lent his voice to Disney Channel cartoon, Phineas and Ferb.

He’s currently filming his new movie CHARACTERz, in which he plays a kangaroo mascot at an amusement park. He also starred in the 2015 film The Sand.

When he’s not filming or posting throwback photos on Instagram, the 24-year-old runs a YouTube channel alongside his brother Marc called MussoLive. The channel, which boasts nearly 40,000 subscribers, contains music videos, blogs and “randomness.”

Jackson Stewart – Jason Earles

He spent a majority of the series as Miley’s older and annoying-yet-lovable brother, but audiences eventually warmed up to Jackson as the years progressed.

The 38-year-old actor (yes, he’s 38) starred in the Disney XD series Kickin’ It until 2015 and lent his voice to the Disney Channel cartoon Fish Hooks. He also appeared in the 2105 action film Hunted.

Rico – Moises Arias

Rico was the annoying, rich, surf-shack worker who set his sights on terrorizing Miley and the crew. But he became a weird sort of friend by the end of the series.

Arias, now 21, dabbled in a few more kids projects after Hannah Montana, but he called his 2013 role in the Gavin Hood-directed sci-fi film Ender’s Game one of the most important roles and his “graduation” from child acting, according to The Huffington Post. He will appear in the upcoming Ben-Hur remake this summer.

Arias’ acting career isn’t all that’s changed. His Instagram account is proof of Arias’ physical transformation.

Jake Ryan – Cody Linley

Miley and Jake’s on-again/off-again relationship kept fans on the edge of their seats throughout much of the series. And the actor who played the role is just as much of a heartthrob as he was then. He’s currently filming Sharknado 4, acting alongside Tara Reid, David Hasselhoff, and Masiela Lusha. He also snagged a role in the 2015 movie Hoovey.

Linley was also a contestant on Dancing With the Stars ?in the show’s seventh season, partnering with Julianne Hough.

Jesse – Drew Roy

After Hannah Montana, Roy starred in Falling Skies, a TNT sci-fi series about survivors of an alien attack, for its five seasons.

Roy’s personal life seems to be thriving as well, as his Instagram is riddled with images of himself and his new wife.
