The series Boy Meets World follows the fictional life of eleven-year-old "Cory Matthews" who lives in Philadelphia with his family. The show's main focus is on his problems as a teenager and those of his friend "Topanga", who is played by Danielle Fishel (38). Danielle was just twelve when the series started and became an overnight star. The end of the series did not mean the end of her career however, she is still a very in-demand actress. She has appeared in countless TV series and films over the last fifteen years.
