Mils 'Miley' Stewart (born November 23, 1992) is a fictional and the main protagonist of the Disney Channel TV Show, Hannah Montana. She made her first appearance in the pilot episode, Lilly, Do You Want to Know a Secret? and her last in Wherever I Go. Miley is the daughter of Robby Ray Stewart and Susan Stewart, the sister of Jackson Stewart and the best friend of Oliver Oken and Lily Truscott. Stewart, altogether is living a double life as a normal teenage girl, and a popstar. Miley has crossed and faced many problems, where people threaten to expose her identity or know it. She has taken down these antics with her friends and family. She also has a side of ambition and strongness from her deceased mother.
In the Season 4 finale, Wherever I Go, She finally reveals her true identity to the world, and her days as Hannah Montana are over. She is also a former character and a current college student.
Miley was born on November 23, 1992, (Cyrus's real birth date), in the fictional town of Crowley Corners in Tennessee, in Buford County, Tennessee, (probably located somewhere in southern Williamson or northern Maury Counties). Her family consisted of her parents Robby and Susan Stewart and an older brother named Jackson. She also has many relatives in her extended family including her grandmother Ruthie Stewart, Aunt Dolly (played by Dolly Parton), Uncle Earl and Aunt Pearl, and a cousin named Luanne (who looks nearly identical and is also played by Cyrus). The characterizations given to most of her family members poke fun at country bumpkin stereotypes. She also had a pet pig named Luanne and a pet hamster named Leslie. She has a horse named Blue Jeans, who came from Tennessee to Malibu to live with Miley and her family.
Miley received a love for music from her father, who was a popular country music star. Her parents recognized Miley's potential and gave her a guitar on December 25, 2000. This event is shown in the episode "I Am Hannah, Hear Me Croak" when Miley views it on her laptop.
By the time she was 12 years old, Miley had become a famous pop star under the stage name "Hannah Montana." She goes to great lengths to disguise herself as Hannah in order to keep her true identity a secret, because she is worried that if people knew her secret they would like her just because she's famous. The only people who knew she's Hannah before revealing her identity to the world in I'll Always Remember You, outside of her family are her best friends, Lilly Truscott, Oliver Oken and her bodyguard Roxy. However, in the episode "Hannah Montana to the Principal's Office" it is shown that the President of the United States knows her secret.
Before the show, Miley was shown a a bit of a selfish 12-year-old, as she was Hannah Montana most of the time. When the show aired it's pilot, Miley was portrayed as a nice-caring girl, who tried to protect her identity from her friends to avoid hurting their feelings. This brings Miley's soft side, inherited by her mother. Her soft side is seen in Season 1 episodes 1-26. Stewart's characteristics are the same as superheroes, Spiderman as both try to hide their true name. Miley is also very loyal.
Miley, a brunette, normally wears any clothes any other teenage girl wears. When she is dressed as Hannah Montana (through use of a blonde wig) she along with this, wears diamonds, and protrayes herself as an fictional 'Disney teenager' princess. Miley also wears a sense of fashion style and diva chick.
