The show is set in Malibu, California.
Miley Cyrus originally auditioned for the role of Lily Truscott but they thought she would be better for the role of Chloe Stewart/Hannah Montana so she then auditioned for Hannah Montana and got the role.
Taylor Momsen and Miley Cyrus were up for the role of Hannah/Chloe Stewart, but Cyrus eventually got the role, and Momsen later went on to star as "Jenny Humphrey" in the hit CW show, Gossip Girl (2007).
Although playing the older brother Jackson, Jason Earles is more than 15 years older than his character.
On-screen, Miley and Lilly were best friends and, despite rumours, the actresses were good friends in real life as well.
Alyson Stoner and Jordan McCoy were considered for the role of Chloe Stewart, but the role was handed over to Miley Cyrus, and the character's name was changed to Miley Stewart.
Billy Ray Cyrus is only 16 years older than his on screen son, Jason Earles.
As stated in an interview, Miley Cyrus shut down the rumor that she would burn the wig after the show's end, and said that she will most likely keep one, and donate the rest to museums.
To prevent it from falling, the wig's fringe is glued to Miley Cyrus's forehead.
Miley Stewart/Hannah Montana is the only character that appears all of the episodes of Hannah Montana.
In the episode in which Robbie Ray hurts his back doing the limbo, he says, "Ow, my achy, breaky back!" a reference to the popular 1990s country song "Achy Breaky Heart," which was sung by Billy Ray Cyrus.
When Miley, Robbie Ray, or Jackson is frustrated, they say, "Sweet niblets!"
The the façade of the house that is supposed to be the Stewarts' home is the same house used in Diagnosis Murder (1993).
After another character says something unexpected, Miley will give them a nickname appropriate to the situation followed by "Say What?"
The series' original ending was that the entire show was a fantasy of a young Miley Cyrus. It was never used.
