‘Stranger Things’ Star Natalia Dyer Talks About Her ‘Small Little Bit’ Role in ‘Hannah Montana’ Movie

If Stranger Things fans were wondering where they’ve seen Natalia Dyer’s face before, the actress is setting the record straight once again.

In a video for Elle UK posted July 27, the actress, 27, shared that she appeared in the 2009 film Hannah Montana: The Movie — and according to IMDb, it is her first credited role.

“I did have a small little bit on the movie Hannah Montana,” she told the magazine in the video about her brief role as Clarissa Granger.

The premise of the Hannah Montana franchise, which starred Miley Cyrus in the title role both on the big and small screen, follows the story of a regular girl who’s alter ego is a world-famous pop-star.

In the video, Dyer is asked if she had her own alter-ego, what that might look like.

“I’m pretty introverted and keep to myself, so if she’s my alter ego I think she would have to be a bit more outgoing and just out in the world,” she said. “Maybe she loves social media and does it all the time.”

Dyer told PEOPLE in 2020 that her first-time role sometimes surprises her to this day.

“Sometimes I forget,” she said.

Dyer is not the only Stranger Things cast mate with a connection to the beloved Disney Channel franchise.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in May, Millie Bobby Brown reiterated that she perfected her American accent by watching Hannah Montana.

When Fallon asked if the rumor was true, the 18-year-old actress confirmed, “Yes, absolutely!”

“I watched Bugsy Malone and Godfather when I was like eight and my parents were like, you know, watching all these movies with me and I was like ‘Yeah but Hannah Montana is like Oscar-nominating, like it’s so good,'” Brown explained.
