Hannah Montana entertainer, Morgan York, as of late opened up on TikTok regarding why she quit acting as a teenager. York was referred to generally for her part as Sarah, one of Miley’s cohorts, on the Disney Channel show, Hannah Montana. In the show, Sarah was known as “Saint Sarah,” as she was continually doing good deeds and was likewise an environmentalist. York showed up in 11 episodes of the show over the 4 seasons that the show ran. After Hannah Montana, York has not any more acting credits.
As detailed by ET Online, in a new post on TikTok, York addressed a client’s remark asking her if she missed acting, with a simple “no” prior to going on to explain why she decided to quit acting as a youngster. In the video, York expressed that the question she gets the most is the reason she quit acting. She goes on to say that she “never expected” acting to be a lifetime thing for her and that her mother would consistently advise her to quit the second that it quit being enjoyable. After her time on Hannah Montana, it appears to be that she hit the point where acting was not, at this point a good time for her. In her TikTok, she explains:
My passion for acting did not outweigh every one of the expenses, like constantly you need to spend away from friends and family on sets and the steady scrutiny from people watching you.
York is not the first child star to take to social media and different stages to discuss the impact of the scrutiny that comes at a particularly young age in Hollywood. Indeed, even the star of Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus, has gone one to reevaluate her time on the show and the impact that it had on her childhood. Though Cyrus unmistakably did not quit acting after her time on Hannah Montana, it’s normal for child stars to go on to seek after entirely different vocations subsequent to deciding that the on-screen limelight wasn’t right for them. Other remarkable child-stars-turned-regular-joes include iCarly’s Jennette McCurdy, who wont be returning for the show’s revival on Paramount+ and Matilda’s Mara Wilson, who currently works for a non-profit.
It’s certainly difficult to be a professional entertainer at any age, yet for young kids, the work accompanies much more hardships. For a few, it can simply be smarter to follow different passions, especially if acting was never one’s main goal. York appears to be content to have left the profession, and certainly doesn’t miss it, though she still backings her kindred cast mates on social media and past.
