The actress' Miranda Sanchez had a special bond with Hilary Duff's Lizzie. But both actresses have been coy on whether Miranda will be back for the Disney+ revival. "During several of the show’s final episodes, Miranda was suddenly M.I.A. and she did not appear in The Lizzie McGuire Movie," says Ashley Reese. "In the Lizzie McGuire universe, Miranda’s absence was explained by a very extended family vacation in Mexico. In reality, Lalaine—the actor who portrayed Miranda—was busy with other Disney projects. A few years later, she later hit a rough patch, including a felony drug charge, rehab, and a career slow down. Duff is being coy about whether Lalaine will return, much coyer than she was about the return of Gordo or Ethan."
