<i>Girl Meets World</i> Casts Riley Matthews' Best Friend

The highly anticipated Boy Meets World spin-off is one step closer to a full cast. Welcome 13-year-old Sabrina Carpenter, who is set to play the best friend of Riley Matthews.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carpenter will play Maya Fox, who was described as follows:

“Maya is an only child and has never known her father, which makes her relationship with both Riley and Cory Matthews very important to her. She is a wonderful student of life and absolutely magnetic in attracting the people in her sphere. A little bit edgy, she is as fiercely loyal to Riley as Riley is to her.”

So basically, Maya is to Riley as Sean Hunter is to Cory Matthews? Seems like the new spin-off will mirror some of the same themes that made us fall so hard for the original series.
