Introducing Cory and Topanga’s daughter….
Rowan Blanchard has been cast for the part of Riley Matthews in the upcoming reboot of “Boy Meets World” – appropriately titled “Girl Meets World.”
The 11-year-old actress will play the daughter of the now happily married Cory and Topanga. Mom and dad are being played by the show’s original stars: Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel.
As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded of why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews,” producer Michael Jacobs told Entertainment Weekly.
“Rowan is real and accessible, and I am hopeful this girl is about to meet a world that will love growing up with her as well.”
Her previous credits include roles in Spy Kids: All the Time in World in 4D and The Back-up Plan.
The show is expected to be part of Disney Channel’s 2013-14 schedule, so this spin-off is still a ways out.
But in the meantime, fans can get in the spirit by checking out what the cast of the original series has been up to….
