‘Boy Meets World’ cast reunites at ATX Television Festival, Danielle Fishel chats about Jared Leto
Members of the Boy Meets World cast reunited for the first time since the series' end 13 years ago at this past weekend's ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas.
Writer and creator Michael Jacobs joined several of the series regulars as panelists at the second annual festival including Ben Savage (Cory Matthews), Rider Strong (Shawn Hunter), Betsy Randle (Amy Matthews), Lily Nicksay (season one and two's Morgan Matthews), Matthew Lawrence (Jack Hunter), Maitland Ward (Rachel McGuire) and Trina McGee (Angela Moore).
Danielle Fishel (Topanga Lawrence) was not in attendance during Friday's Boy Meets World panel, but a pre-recorded video from her was played for the audience. In the Q-and-A, she described how Jared Leto, the frontman of 30 Seconds To Mars who also played Jordan Catalano on My So-Called Life, rescued her when her car hydroplanned.
Members of the My So-Called Life cast were panelists at a separate festival event, but Leto was also not in attendance.
Jacobs, Savage and Fishel are currently working on Girl Meets World, a spinoff to Boy Meets World. Savage and Fishel will have two children: a daughter, Riley, portrayed by Rowan Blanchard and her older brother, Elliot, played by Teo Halm.
Not much else has been revealed in terms of who else will be making appearances on the show, but hints were dropped throughout the panel. One such hint included McGee mentioning to stay tuned to see what happened to Angela and Shawn after so many years.
A pilot has already been filmed, and the show is awaiting a full series pick-up according to NYDailyNews.com.
