Alison Brie just shocked a lot of her fans by revealing she was once on Hannah Montana.
The 37-year-old Glow actress opened up in a video interview with Collider about her appearance on the show as Nina, who appeared during the first season. Nina was the girl who Rico payed to pretend to like him in the episode “It’s My Party, and I’ll Lie if I Want To”.
“Working on Hannah Montana was the perfect first job coming out of theater school because it shoots with a live studio audience,” Alison shared. “It was the only show I’ve ever done with a studio audience.”
She added that the huge popularity that encompassed the show hadn’t hit quite yet during season one.
“I couldn’t be more comfortable on a show,” Alison recalled before talking just about how her audition went. “I remember taking a big swing in my audition and it didn’t call for it. I went in and did this very broad Long Island accent, and they called me back, and did it again.”
Alison added that after she got the job, the director told her of her performance that they “loved it all, but lose the accent.”
