Morgan York came to prominence as a young star, working in projects such as Hannah Montana, The Pacifier, and Cheaper By The Dozen. However, she left her acting career in 2010 to pursue a new career as a writer. She recently revealed on her TikTok account why she left her Hollywood career to pursue blogging. Before joining the Disney show, the 28-year-old Hannah Montana actress had already appeared in a number of films. She never saw herself as an actress as she grew up.
Hannah Montana star opened up about her early days as a child actress, when she was only nine years old, and how she went on to play famous roles. “I started acting when I was 9, and from the beginning, my mom told me, ‘The second this becomes not fun or you want to stop, you can stop’. I never expected it to be a lifetime thing” she stated. She even said it was never her intention to grow up and try acting. “I even remember as a kid trying to imagine myself as an adult actor, and just not seeing it,” she added.
She also explained in the video that she was prepared to attend college and not pursue acting as a career. She went on to say that she no longer enjoyed her job and that she didn’t want people to give it too much importance. “I think I also wildly underestimated how much of an uproar would be made over it. I thought I could just leave and nobody would ask me for the next 11 years of my life, ‘Why did you quit acting?’ But…it wasn’t fun anymore.”
Morgan is now working as an author, something she enjoys. She expressed her desire to write fiction novels by saying: “My passion for writing fiction, which existed as long as my passion for acting, was just much stronger. It was something I preferred.”
“A lot of people think of me as famous because I have worked a little bit in movies and TV,” she went on to explain, “And I see how it looks like that from your perspective. But from my perspective, I have never thought of myself as famous. I wasn’t in that much relatively speaking. I can go about my life. Most people don’t know my name.” “The only way I could have really interacted with any of my Hannah Montana co-stars at this point is on social media,” she continued. “I follow all of them, and I don’t think any of them follow me, which, that’s fine. They are famous.” York said that “it’s not personal,” and they might not even realize she follows them. “So, I haven’t spoken to any of the Hannah Montana cast since 2010.”
Morgan began her acting career as a child in Sesame Street: Kids’ Favorite Songs 2, in which she portrayed herself. In 2003, she made her big-screen debut as Kimberly Baker in the film Cheaper by the Dozen, and then as Lulu Palmer in Vin Diesel’s The Pacifier in 2005. She joined the Hannah Montana cast in 2006 and was a regular cast member in the second season alongside Miley Cyrus, Emily Osment, and others. As soon as the Disney show ended, she ended her acting career.
