It's official: Cory and Topanga really do have a daughter.
The actress (Spy Kids: All the Time in World in 4D, The Back-up Plan) will portray Riley Matthews, the daughter of Ben Savage's Cory and Danielle Fishel's Topanga and the young women through whose eyes viewers will see the universe.
Producer Michael Jacobs tells EW that Blanchard is "real and accessible" and that she reminded him of Savage when she auditioned for the part.
Girl Meets World begins production next month and will almost definitely be included on the network's 2013-14 schedule.
