Ben Savage Will Make Directorial Debut with ‘Girl Meets World’ Episode


Ben Savage, better known to most of us still as Cory Matthews, will be making his directorial debut with the spin-off of his hit Boy Meets World series, Girl Meets World.

Savage and his co-star Danielle Fishel have reprised their roles as childhood sweethearts, now grown up with a young daughter of their own, on the forthcoming Girl Meets World, and the 33 year old is planning to step behind the camera to direct one of the episodes.

He tells The Hollywood Reporter, “It’s something I’ve been prepping for for the last 20 years…

“It was a natural progression because I had always wanted to direct and I felt such a personal connection to the show. It was an important piece of my life really. Directing was a natural next step for me and it’s something I was looking forward to doing.”

Production on the episode is due to shoot at the end of this month and Savage reveals he has been receiving a few words of wisdom from his brother and fellow actor-turned-director Fred Savage.

He says, “Fred and I have had many discussions about it. He’s always willing to offer advice and suggestions and pointers when he can. He’d be a very helpful guide as I go through this process.”

Girl Meets World, which stars 11-year-old Rowan Blanchard as Savage and Fishel’s daughter, is scheduled to premiere on the Disney Channel later this year.
