‘Shawn’ & ‘Eric’ stopped by the ‘Boy Meets World’ spin-off! Will they also guest star on the Disney Channel series?
Excuse me while I recover from my heart exploding. Rider Strong and Will Friedle — who played Shawn Hunter and Eric Matthews, respectively, on Boy Meets World — stopped by the set of Girl Meets World on March 20 to pay a visit to the newbies. And the newbies freaked out accordingly.
“Rider Strong and Will Friedle visited us!” Rowan Blanchard — who plays Riley, aka the Girl — tweeted, along with the above photo. “OH MY GOSH.” Rider and Will posed alongside Rowan and Sabrina Carpenter, who plays Riley’s “edgy” friend Maya.
UPDATE: It has been brought to my attention that Maitland Ward, who played Eric and Jack’s roommate Rachel, was also at the taping. She tweeted about being at the studio, but the photos she Instagrammed have been taken down.
Will Shawn & Eric Appear On ‘Girl Meets World’?
Though this recent set visit was merely for pleasure, and not business, it sounds like either or both characters could make an appearance on the show at some point.
“At this point, I have no official involvement,” Rider wrote in an statement. “There might be a chance to see some of the BMW cast in a guest spot, and I think it would be nice to find out where our characters have been all these years. But Girl Meets World will be, and I think it should be, it’s own show. It will be about Cory and Topanga, their daughter, and a new set of characters … And I, for one, can’t wait to see it evolve.”
Will hasn’t released an official statement, but come on, you know he’ll be doing that Feeny Call once more.
