Rowan Blanchard Will Star In Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World”

Entertainment Weekly reported on Monday (January 28, 2013) that 11-year-old Rowan Blanchard is set to play daughter of Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) in the Disney Channel spin-off of “Boy Meets World,” titled “Girl Meets World.”

Miss Blanchard was seen in “Spy Kids: All the Time in World in 4D” and “The Back-up Plan.”

Michael Jacobs (producer of the “Girl Meets World” pilot) had this to say about the actress:

As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded of why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews. 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.

Ben Savage tweeted this about Rowan:

I have a beautiful, new daughter. Welcome to the family @rowblanchard! #GirlMeetsWorld

In an excited tweet from Rowan, she said:

IT’S OFFICIAL! I WILL BE PLAYING RILEY MATTHEWS IN GIRL MEETS WORLD!! AHHH SOO EXCITED! #BLESSED

The pilot will begin production next month, and if it gets greenlit to series, it could be placed on Disney Channel’s 2013-14 schedule.
