‘Girl Meets World': Meet Riley Matthews’ Best Friend Maya!
As ‘Boy Meets World’ fans well know, Cory Matthews would be nothing without Shawn Hunter. So why would his daughter be any different without a best friend of her own? The Disney Channel’s spin-off / sequel series ‘Girl Meets World‘ prepares to go before cameras next month now that young Rowan Blanchard has landed the title role of Riley Matthews, Cory and Topanga’s daughter, and the latest piece of the puzzle has been placed. Sabrina Carpenter has landed the role of Maya Fox, (Hunter, Fox, get it?), Riley’s rebellious best friend! Meet the new ‘Girl Meets World’ duo inside!
‘Girl Meets World’ may not have a series order, but it at least has a best friend. After yet another long search, the ‘Boy Meets World’ sequel spin-off series has cast its secondary role Maya Fox, the rebellious and Shawn Hunter-esque best friend to Riley Matthews. 13-year old Pennsylvania native Sabrina Carpenter has joined the series, along with Rowan Blanchard previously cast in the title role.
A singer previously featured in Disney XD’s ‘Gulliver Quinn,’ Disney Junior’s ‘Sofia The First’ and FOX’s ‘The Goodwin Games,’ Carpenter also joins original ‘Boy Meets World’ stars Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage, reprising the roles of Cory and Topanga. The pilot episode of ‘Girl Meets World’ begins shooting next month, executive produced by original series show-runner Michael Jacobs, who yesterday spoke out about the series’ potential to cast additional stars from the original series.
Well, what say you? Will Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter be the next Cory and Shawn? Do you have any interest in checking out ‘Girl Meets World?’
