While Danielle Fishel is about to begin filming her new Disney Channel series “Girl Meets World,” pretty soon it’ll be “Girl Meets Husband” for the actress.
The 32-year-old star signed on to reprise her role of Topanga for a spinoff of the classic ‘90s hit “Boy Meets World,” which aired for seven seasons on ABC.
Now Fishel tells “Us Weekly” that though her character married Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) on-screen during the show’s original run, she’s about to tie the knot for real.
The actress is engaged to her long-term boyfriend, Tim Belusko, but still refers to Savage as her “first husband,” who she will be reunited with when “Girl” begins production in November.
“Any time I’m around Ben, I feel like I’m at my most comfortable because we’ve been together for 20 years, so it’s been nice to be back together,” she said, adding that her fiancé “totally accepts that.”
“Girl Meets World” is set to premiere in 2014. Are you excited for Danielle or are you still holding out hope that Cory and Topanga will get together in real life?
