‘Girl Meets World’ lead cast

Posted: January 29, 2013 in Television

Disney have announced that the lead role for their upcoming series Girl Meets World has been cast.  11 year old Rowan Blanchard will be playing the young daughter of Cory and Topanga’s daughter – Riley Matthews – in the show.

Blanchard’s past credits include roles in Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D and The Back-Up Plan.  When asked about why Blanchard was picked, show creator Michael Jacobs 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.”

The pilot for the show is to begin shooting next month with the show scheduled to air during the 2013-2014 Disney line-up.
