After a video went viral in which a user of TikTok ensure that Belinda would have stayed between finalists to get the main character from the series Hannah Montana and that there would even be refused the role, the show’s casting director disproved this and showed that the Spanish failed to reach the final.
For years there was a rumor that Belinda would have auditioned for the series of Hannah Montana to be the protagonist; However, it was ensured that the same singer commented that she did not keep the role because, despite the fact that she was selected to play the star, she did not feel enough confidence with her English to play character.
A few days ago the user of TikTok Fernanda Cortés recalled this supposed fact and shared in a short video how it was that supposedly Beli turned down acting in the hit series Disney; however, when it went viral, it reached Lisa Londonwho denied this rumor and finally clarified why the singer was not part of the production of Hannah Montana.

London showed the sheet on which the list of actresses who stayed in the final of the casting to obtain the main role of the series, among which is not the interpreter of Light without gravityotherwise Taylor momsen (of gossip-girl), Danielle Monet (of victorius) Y Miley Cyrus.
On the same sheet you can also see that at this stage of the casting the main character was called Chloé and took place on Friday, May 6, 2005.
“These were the three finalist actresses who auditioned in the test out of nearly 100 girls,” said Lisa London.

Some Internet users recovered that it was in a magazine of Billboard of 2006 that the version emerged that the Spanish had been selected to play Hannah Montana, because in the publication it is read that supposedly Gary Marshwho was then the president of entertainment for Disney Channel Worldwidesaid that during the casting of Hannah Montana he thought the singer I wasn’t ready for the role as “She still didn’t feel comfortable enough to handle a role that spoke English”.
In the same magazine it is read that, since Marsh did not want Belinda in Hannah Montanadecided that the production that best suited the interpreter of Beautiful betrayal it was to cheetah girls.
Thanks to the profile I had Beli As a Mexican-Spanish singer who developed almost entirely in Latin America and who had some songs in English, in addition to being one of the most important artists of the moment, it was that they decided to put her in the film Cheetah Girls 2leaving aside the option that she was part of Hannah Montana.
As the publication recalled, this was beneficial for the singer’s career and for Disney strengthen its ties with the Latin American public, because while Belinda’s album Neither Freud nor your mother would start promotions in several Latin American countries, Disney he was looking for how to approach these nations.
