Armitage has spent almost seven years working as Sheldon and Cyrus herself spent a lot of time playing Hannah Montana. They both achieved unparalleled fame in the industry, but the road to that might have been rockier for the Flowers singer if what she said about her experience as the fictional character is anything to go by.

Yeah, I mean I am not necessarily the kind of person to be like I don’t want to be associated with this character anymore… I am happy to be Sheldon.

Not just the fans who have loved the show, it looks like Armitage himself has been fond of his character a lot. However, he also revealed that despite his attachment to Sheldon Cooper, he would love to be in an action or a drama movie.

Iain Armitage seems to have had the time of his life playing a younger version of Sheldon Cooper. On the other hand, years ago, celebrated American singer and actress Miley Cyrus revealed something that shocked everyone. Although fans have always appreciated her role as Hannah Montana, Cyrus herself does not consider the Disney character very close to her heart.

Cyrus revealed that playing Hannah Montana negatively affected her mental health. She told Marie Claire:

I was made to look like someone that I wasn’t, which probably caused some body dysmorphia because I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn’t on that show, it was like, ‘Who the f— am I?’

Cyrus did not seem happy with how she had to pretend like someone else. Apart from the issues she faced regarding her physical appearance, she also had emotional breakdowns while on the set. 

She found it difficult to attach herself to a character that gave her many embarrassing moments and anxiety attacks. With what the hitmaker said, it’s clear that playing a famous character doesn’t always guarantee a sense of pride in the actor’s psyche. However, this does not mean that every actor has had the same type of experience when they start working in the industry as young people. 

Young Sheldon is available for streaming on Max and Netflix. Hannah Montana is available for streaming on Disney+.
