Millie Bobby Brown paid a visit to Miley Cyrus' Instagram show Bright Minded on Monday (March 30) to dish some seriously adorable tea about how her love for Hannah Montana inadvertently helped her acting career.

"I just have to say, the only way I got my American accent was by watching Hannah Montana," the British teen revealed to Cyrus, who replied, "I'm surprised you don't have a country accent!"

Brown went on to tell a delighted Cyrus about finding an old camera roll with a video of her younger self performing fan-favorite track "Hoedown Throwdown" from 2009's Hannah Montana The Movie.

"Full-on knew every single dance move," she said with a laugh. "I was, like, obsessed...and now, thinking back on how obsessed I was with just, I wanted your job. Like, I didn't know how to get your job but I was like, 'I wanna be like, you know, Hannah Montana. I don't know how to do it.' And then I realized it was an actual job and I was like, 'Oh I want to do that, that sounds fun!' I didn't even know you could get money for it. I was like, 'I'll do it for free!'"
