'Girl Meets World' Cuts Riley's Brother From Series
Actor Teo Halm, who was cast as Cory and Topanga's teenage son, broke the news on Twitter.
Disney Channel's Boy Meets World follow-up Girl Meets World is losing a character.
Actor Teo Halm, who in March had been cast as Elliot, Cory and Topanga's teenage son and older sibling to titular world-meeter Riley, will no longer be in the upcoming series, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
Halm broke the news over the weekend on Twitter: "So guys, Disney decided that it wouldn't work to have an older brother on the show; I won't be on Girl Meets World. Thank you to everyone."
Danielle Fishel, who is reprising her role as Topanga on Girl Meets World, wrote back less than 20 minutes later: "Teo, you are an incredible talent and I adore you. You may still call me 'mom.' "
A spokesperson for Disney Channel issued a statement to THR, noting that "various creative changes are often made as a project transitions from pilot to series."
Disney Channel greenlighted a series order for Girl Meets World in June. It will premiere in 2014.
