Danielle Fishel On Topanga, Linda Cardellini And Growing Up Onscreen
Huffington Post - about 3 years
When "Boy Meets World" hit ABC in 1993, Danielle Fishel became Topanga Lawrence to the world. From that moment on, she was forever linked to her onscreen high school sweetheart Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), and 20 years later everyone still calls her "Topanga." In honor of the DVD release of "Boy Meets World: The Complete Collection" and the premiere of "Girl Meets World" (premiering on the Disney Channel in 2014), Fishel opened up to The Huffington Post about what to expect from "Girl Meets World," being Topanga, her relationship with her co-stars and more. What was it like growing up onscreen? Wonderful! I don’t have any complaints. Even during the years when I was awkward-looking or overweight, it didn’t really worry me that millions of people were watching me go through it. I get my self-worth from within, not external validation, so I just look at all those years as scripted home movies. You've said you're really enjoying working with Ben Savage again. Did you two stay close o ...

10 Life Lessons From Eric Matthews
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Attention '90s kids: Get ready to feel nostalgic! Sunday marks Will Friedle's 37th birthday. Best known for his epic role as Eric Matthews, Friedle played the requisite, kooky older brother to naive Cory on "Boy Meets World." The legendary ABC comedy depicted a slapstick-yet-honest adolescence as we followed the Matthews brothers through friendships, true love and loss. "Boy Meets World" accomplished so much during its seven-season run: The show reaffirmed our belief in soulmates (duh, Cory and Topanga), highlighted the importance of a bromance (Shawn and Cory) and also proved the impact a single person (FEE-EEH-EEH-NAY!) can have on our lives. Still, it was Eric's expressive eyebrows and hilarious antics that kept us tuned in. Though his appearance on the 2014 reboot "Girl Meets World" is up in the air, take a trip 20 years back to revisit Eric Matthews' greatest life lessons. 1. Be grateful to those who were tough on you. They were like that for a reason. ...

Everyone's favorite teacher is officially headed to Disney. When several photos of the "Boy Meets World" gang on set emerged earlier this week, fans began speculating about "Girl Meets World" casting possibilities. HuffPost can now exclusively confirm that William Daniels, who played Mr. Feeny on "Boy Meets World" for seven years, will be returning for the sequel, while Rider Strong (Shawn Hunter) and Will Friedle (Eric Matthews) were just visiting. Created by Michael Jacobs, "Girl Meets Word" will center on original "Boy Meets World" stars Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga's (Danielle Fishel) journey as they wade their way through parenthood with their daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and son Elliot (Teo Halm). Although Daniels is one of the only confirmed originals, there's hope for other former cast members.

Will More 'Boy Meets World' Stars Join 'Girl Meets World'?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
The "Girl Meets World" cast has found its lead with Rowan Blanchard, who will play Cory and Topanga's daughter. But the rest of the ensemble could include some very familiar faces to "Boy Meets World" fans. Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel are reprising their "Boy Meets World" roles of Cory and Topanga, parents to 13-year-old Riley (Blanchard). Their friends and family from the original ABC series could also stop by. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, series creator Michael Jacobs said the cast has an open invite. "We sat down with them and talked about what their roles on the show may be," Jacobs said in regards to the original "Boy Meets World" cast members. "Whoever wants to be part of this show will be and whoever wants to move on will. The most important thing is to see what the show is and then see what their part in it will be. Will Friedle said, 'I will be at every taping.' Everybody is quite attached to it. The bottom line is: Will Rider [Strong] or Will ...
