The much-anticipated Disney sequel (continuation?) to Boy Meets World, called Girl Meets World, has their star!
After a nationwide casting search, producer Michael Jacobs finally found Rowan Blanchard, right here in Hollywood. Yep, she’s been acting for a while,ÃÂ appearing in Spy Kids: All the Time in World in 4D and The Back-up Plan.
Soon, everyone will know her as 13-year-old Riley! Says Jacobs:
“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.”
We hope so, too! This show is getting a LOT of buzz and naturally, there’s a lot of pressure riding on it to be as successful as its predecessor.
