Hannah Montana star, Miley Cyrus, will now be expected to play a bigger role in upcoming movie High School Musical 3.
Miley explained that instead of being an extra, she will be playing a role of being one of Sharpay's [Ashley Tisdale] Sharpettes. Her new name will be Cassie and she will be cast as Sharpay's favorite Sharpette.
Miley was ecstatic when she found out she would have a speaking role, instead of somebody getting a shot of her dancing for 2 seconds.
Miley's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, was not as happy. He says, "I think we should work on this whole movie thing." But Miley only wants to be a Sharpette, nothing too fancy, like being someone like Gabriella.
Miley will start filming 6 days after everyone else starts just so they can keep a little bit of an organized schedule.
Miley says she is very cool with everyone on set. She says, "Vanessa and Ashley are like my sisters. We can talk about anything and everything. Ashley actually lives 3 houses down from me. Vanessa lives a couple blocks."
High School Musical 3 is set for release October 24.
