Miley Cyrus focusing on films

The 17-year-old actress and singer - who stars in new movie The Last Song - is about to start shooting the final episodes of the Disney Channel TV series, which is ending after four award-winning seasons.

"I'm probably not going to do much more TV after Hannah Montana - I love movies so I can't wait to continue to do that," she said.

"I'd just like to continue making films. It's what I really love to do and it's my main passion. I love music and I'm excited about the next record, but film is what I'm really looking forward to so I can't wait to continue to grow."

Miley - who rose to fame as Hannah Montana - will be sad to see the show end.

"I'm sure we all will get emotional. I've been doing it since I was 11, so it's a huge chapter in my life, but I've got a lot more to do and I'm excited about moving onto new things," she said.

She added: "It's going to be hard, leaving that Hannah security blanket behind. I love that part of my life but I think it will be good for all of us and bring a lot of new things."

:: The Last Song will be released on April 30.
