Miley Cyrus penned a handwritten letter to her former TV alter ego, Hannah Montana, to mark Wednesday's 15th anniversary of the show premiering on Disney Channel.

Cyrus shared her memories of the show and expressed her gratitude for the character who shot her to stardom.

In the note, written in purple ink on "Hannah Montana" stationary and posted to Instagram, Cyrus began, “Hi Hannah, It’s been a while. 15 years to be exact. Since the first time I slid those blonde bangs over my forehead in the best attempt to conceal my identity. Then slipped into a puke pink terry cloth robe with a bedazzled HM over the [heart]."

"I didn’t know then ... that is where you would live forever," she continued. "Not just in mine but in millions of people around the world.”

Cyrus, 28, went on to talk about the milestones she experienced while making the show, including embarrassingly getting her first period while wearing white capri pants and getting her learner's permit at 15 so she could drive herself to set.

“You and I have been through it all together my friend," she wrote. "We’ve shared many firsts. A lot of lasts. Ups. Downs. Tears and laughs.”

Cyrus concluded her note by thanking the cast, crew, her family and everyone who made her big break possible. But most of all, she expressed her gratitude to the character, which she calls “the greatest gift a girl could ask for.”

“You have all my love and utmost gratitude,” she concluded, addressing Hannah directly. “Breathing life into you for those 6 years was an honor.”

The show's official social media account responded to Cyrus' letter on Twitter, saying, "Nice to hear from you @MileyCyrus. It’s only been a decade."

All episodes of "Hannah Montana" are now streaming on Disney+.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News and "Good Morning America."
