Rider Strong Talks Possible 'Girl Meets World' Involvement!

Boy Meets World star Rider Strong has spoken out about the highly anticipated series Girl Meets World and whether he will be involved!

“I am extremely happy for Ben [Savage] and Danielle [Fishel] to be able to continue the story. At this point, I have no official involvement in Girl Meets World,” the 32-year-old actor told The Insider.

“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.”

DO YOU THINK Rider Strong should appear on Girl Meets World?

Click inside to read Rider Strong‘s complete statement about the show…

“Years ago, I was on a train in Spain. It was four in the morning, and I was traveling by myself from Salamanca to Madrid.

“A young man approached me and began talking rapidly. I don’t speak Spanish. He didn’t speak English.

“I couldn’t figure out what he wanted. We went back and forth for awhile in a stumbling, half-sign-language conversation. Finally, right when he was about to give up, he got an idea. He pointed at me and said one word.

“‘Topanga?’

“Call it the universal language of Boy Meets World.

“For more than two-thirds of my life, I’ve had the good fortune to experience the incredible support of Boy Meets World fans. Complete strangers hug me on the street. I’ve been mobbed by school children on the subway. I’ve had tow-truck drivers recognize me and refuse to let me pay. I’ve had people buy me drinks in Louisville, in Hyderabad, in Accra…

“And that’s just the people I’ve met in person. I can’t express enough gratitude to the BMW fans, who not only watched our show when it first aired, but who continue to watch it, spread the word, and even introduce it to their children. It’s an overwhelming feeling to have that kind of support for something we did over a decade ago. When I opened a Twitter account, I thought maybe I’d get a few hundred followers. It wasn’t long before thousands of people were checking in and sending me messages.

“Boy Meets World was a defining aspect of my life, and I cherish those seven years. It was never just a job — on a personal level, many of my best memories and friendships were formed because of it.

“So I am extremely happy for Ben and Danielle to be able to continue the story. At this point, I have no official involvement in Girl Meets World. 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.

“It’s the next generation.

“And I, for one, can’t wait to see it evolve.”

Okay, I think he has to have at least an ARC on the show. To go through all those storylines, with the strong bond between Cory and Shawn for 7 years only for him to not be in their lives in the sequel? That’s just wrong.

I just lovee him! I think if he isn’t one of the main stars of Girl Meets World he HAS TO at least do a few episodes as a guest star. It would be awesome. And Eric has to come back too! He is going to be Topanga’s and Cory’s daughter uncle after all. I just miss all the cast and when I see them in some other movie or tv show I always get excited. Recently watching Mr Feeny on Greys Anatomy made me so happy to see him back on tv :’)

# 3

Him and Eric best be coming back! I need my former crush and jokster back !!!!

# 4

Even if the show ends up sucking, I would tune it for the appearances of Rider, Feeney and Wil.

# 5

New show or not, it is hard to imagine Cory without Shawn and hopefully we won’t have to.

Possible,no he has to be on the show come on
as a supporting character or a regular
him and Eric!

# 8

I never imagined Cory and Shawn NOT being friends their whole life; so I expect to see him :) You can do so much with Eric’s character – he was the comic relief in the last few seasons (not saying the others weren’t). He could be the “creepy/funny” uncle that could misguide cory/topanga’s daughter? hahaha

He really should!!! I’d definitely watch. I hope Will Friedle will come on the show too. And of course, mr Feeney!! That would be the best. :p

Him, Eric, and Feeny need to be back or there will really be no point.

Uncle Shawn ……………… . I also want Mr. Turner as Headmaster (that would be Mr. Feenie’s place). :-))

I definitely want Will Friedle and Rider Strong back. But what about the other girls?

British Latin American @ 12/01/2012 at 2:16 pm

And I forgot, I want Matthew Lawrence back too!

Is it just me, or does the beginning of his Spain story sound like the “I want to hook up” story from Friends? (The one Rachel used when she and Ross conceived Emma)
