Following a TikTok clip that went viral with the claim that Spanish-Mexican performer Belinda nearly got the part, London posted one of her own on Wednesday to show that it wasn't so.

I'm actually the casting director for Hannah Montana, and I was the one who discovered Miley Cyrus," London said on TikTok.

"I wanted to inform everyone that Belinda gorgeous in every way did not make the top three cast for the part of Hannah.

The video was then split into a photo-shopped sheet of paper. The paper was published on 6 May 2005 and included Cyrus's name, along with two other names: Taylor Momsen and Daniella Monet.

They were the three final models the network had evaluated out of more than 1,200 girls" London revealed.

While Momsen and Monet did not make it to the final cut but they went to be the stars of their own shows on television.
