We didn’t quite think there was much of a connection between The Walking Dead and controversial pop singing sensation Miley Cyrus, but it turns out there is! But before you get carried away we should tell you that there are no plans for tongue-obsessed Miles to guest star as a walker on the zombie hit. At least there are no plans that we know of…

Instead, Miley’s connection to the AMC drama comes courtesy of a Flashback Friday photo that actress Brighton Sharbino posted on Instagram many months ago. Brighton, who plays “messed up” Lizzie Samuels on TWD, has been acting for years, and when she was really little the blonde tyke had a role on Miley’s highly successful show, Hannah Montana.

According to IMDB, Brighton played a character named Cammi in a 2010 episode of the Disney Channel favorite called “Hannah’s Gonna Get This.” We don’t know anything else about Brighton’s role, but we’re sure she was super psyched to be a part of the beloved show. When she posted the photo to Instagram many months ago, Brighton captioned it, “#mileycyrus #hannahmontana #flashbackfriday #fbf.”

Brighton is too cute for words, and Miley is also looking great. Her hair is tied back in a ponytail and her tongue is thankfully in her mouth. Oh the good old days!

Did you know that Brighton was on Hannah Montana before The Walking Dead? Tell us below!
