Where Is ‘Boy Meets World’ Star Danielle Fishel Now


There have been some great TV couples over the ages, but none quite as iconic as Cory and Topanga from the ‘90s series Boy Meets World. It premiered back in 1993 on ABC, and all 7 seasons were unforgettable. 

It starts with Cory and Topanga as sixth-graders, following them as they grew up in high school and eventually attended Pennbrook University. Over these many seasons, Cory gains a best friend named Shawn, and the love of his life, Topanga. 

Topanga was everything, and as young girls, we learned lots of valuable life lessons from her. She was an outspoken feminist, an optimist, and unapologetically sassy. She taught us to be bold, opinionated and determined. That “being a lady” doesn’t mean staying quiet — it means making the first move, and being yourself, even if it means other people think your clothing and poetry are weird. 

This role gained Danielle Fishel a YoungStar Award back in 1998, and she went on to continue acting, appearing in two National Lampoon movies, Longshot and a film called Boiling Pot.  She also hosted some TV shows, including The Fuse 20, Say What?, and The Dish.  Cory, AKA Ben Savage, instead went on to become a history teacher. We have to wonder…how much did Mr. Feeny have to do with that?
