Meet Cory and Topanga's Daughter!

Rowan Blanchard
Looks like Girl Meets World has finally found its star!  It was just announced that 11 year old actress Rowan Blanchard will star opposite Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel as Riley Matthews, daughter of Cory and Topanga, in the upcoming Boy Meets World spin-off.  She has previously appeared in Spy Kids: All the Time in the Wold in 4D (opposite Jessica Alba), The Backup Plan (opposite Jennifer Lopez), and some TV series called Dance-A-Lot Robot. In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, Girl Meets World showrunner Michael Jacobs (who also created BMW) said, “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.”  No word yet on who'll be playing Riley's brother Elliott or best friend Maya, but at least we can finally put a face to the titular "Girl" in Girl Meets World.  Check out an interview Rowan did back in 2011 about her appearance in Spy Kids: All the Time in the World.  She certainly seems to have a fun personality!  Can't wait to see her on GMW!
