Rowan Blanchard Cast as Riley in Girl Meets World

one of the most popular shows of the 90’s was Boy Meets World starring Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel. Fans enjoyed watching Cory and Topanga grow up over the course of the show’s seven seasons. The show began with Cory in grade school and followed him through middle, high school and finally as he went off to college and ultimately marry long time girlfriend, Topanga.

Well, it has been announced by Disney Channel that 11-year old Rowan Blanchard has been cast as the daughter of Topanga and Cory’ daughter in Disney Channel’s sequel to Boy Meets World titled Girl Meets World following a nation wide search.

In the Disney Channel project, Cory and Topanga are happily married and have a 13-year-old daughter named Riley. The show will tell the story from Riley’s point of view. Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel are set to return to their roles as Cory and Topanga.

It’s commonly known that most child actresses and actors are older than their characters. Studios like working with kids that are older and more mature who can play younger characters. Skai Jackson who is 10 plays 7 yr old Zuri. Jake Short is 15, while his character, Fletcher is younger. This makes it easier to comply with child labor laws and schooling on set. Most “teens” on shows like Teen Wolf, Pretty Little Liars and Vampire Diaries are played by actors much older. So are major roles in movies such as Twilight and Hunger Games. The only other time I know about a younger actress playing a character older than they were is Sasha Pieterse who plays Allison on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars. She began the show as a 15 yr old.

This means that Rowan Blanchard must have made quite an impression on the producers and directors who made the choice to cast an 11 yr old to play a 13 yr old!

Rowan had her big break on the big screen in Spy Kids 4 when she played Rebecca. She was also in the Back Up Plan. Rowan is a sweet, humble young lady with a younger sister named Carmen.
She has attended and supported many charity events!

Many factors are considered when casting an actor in a major role. One important one is looks. The child needs to resemble his or her onscreen parents. Check out this pic :

I think you’ll agree Rowan looks like she could definitely be Cory and Topanga’s little girl!

The series isn’t a sure thing yet!

The pilot is scheduled to be taped soon then Disney Channel executives have a while to decide to give the show the green light and pick it up!

There have been pilots taped and not picked up. This happened with Madison High.

Let’s hope Disney gives Girl Meets World the Green Light soon!!
