Ben Savage is one the key star of famous comedy drama series Boy Meets World. He played the role of Cory Matthews in the show. He says he is always prepared to play as Cory whenever it returns.
Ben Savage told Us Weekly that he is ready to return as Cory Matthews should Disney ever decide to expand the Boy Meets World universe. He said it earlier this month while promoting his partnership with Goldfish alongside brother Fred Savage.
“I’ve learned enough to know that you literally never know what can happen in this business. Every day is a roller-coaster. and it’s always exciting. So, I say never say never”.
The original Boy Meets World ran from 1993 to 2000 on ABC. It followed Ben’s character from middle school to college. He returned as the lovable Cory Matthews in Girl Meets World,
The latter is a Disney Channel spinoff. It centered on Cory’s daughter Riley Matthews and her best friend Maya Hart as they navigated adolescence. It aired from 2014 to 2017.
Cory was Riley and Maya’s teacher, leaving an easy way to reinvent the show should it ever return with a new class of students. Ben’s character was still happily married to Topanga and their home life allowed opportunities for many veteran cast members to drop by. Their lasting marriage left the Love, Lights, Hannukah! actor satisfied.
“I think Cory was very lucky to end up with Topanga, but I was very happy to see that relationship develop”.
The high school sweethearts don’t have love from all the fans, the former child star noted. He recalled the story line where Topanga turned down her acceptance to the Ivy League school to be with her childhood love.
“Some people feel very strongly that she should not have chosen me and should have gone off to Yale”.
Ben isn’t too upset about any lingering backlash, he’s just happy fans still care. No matter what he is always up for another sequel.
