So, what's it like to play Miley's TV boyfriend for four years? In an interview with MTV News, Linley fondly remembered his time spent with Cyrus, describing her as "super sweet" and "very fun;" someone who "taught [him] how to have fun on set and just, you know, laugh." During lunch breaks, the cast would rock out to in Cyrus's room, play the piano together, and even try their hand at ping pong. Later in the series, Linley's character appeared more sporadically, but he said there was always the same vibe when he returned, and everyone was continuously grateful for the show's success.
And while he doesn't get the chance to see his TV girlfriend very often anymore, he still follows her achievements and is delighted at everything she's accomplished.
