Teo Halm was all set to play Cory and Topanga’s teenage son on the highly anticipated Disney Channel series Girl Meets World, but the actor announced via Twitter on Saturday that he’s been nixed from the cast.
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 plays Topanga) was quick to reply with love via the social media network saying, “@TeoHalm Teo, you are an incredible talent and I adore you. You may still call me “mom.” :)”
The Boy Meets World follow-up series is set to revolve around Cory and Topanga’s tween daughter, Riley Matthews, who will be played by Rowan Blanchard. Since this cast cut, Riley is left with only one other sibling, her kid brother – Louis – played by August Maturo.
When asked about Halm’s depature from Girl Meets World, Disney replied, “Various creative changes are often made as a project transitions from pilot to series.”
