Girl Meets World Cast Interviews
Do you love Girl Meets World? We interviewed Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carter who play Riley and Maya on the show. Among their classmates is an intelligent and quirky boy named Farkle (played by 14-year-old Corey Fogelmanis) and Riley’s crush, Lucas (played by Peyton Meyer) who has relocated from Texas and is adjusting to life in the city. Read on for interviews with these two boys from the show.
Introducing COREY FOGELMANIS & PEYTON MEYER!
Peyton, tell me about your character. What do you like about him?
Peyton: My character is Lucas Friar. I am the new kid in school and I moved from Austin, Texas to New York City. So I’m a little bit out of my comfort zone, but, you know, I’m just trying to look for some friends and I find a little interest in Riley. And I love my character because, you know, he always knows the right thing to do and stays true to what he believes is right.
Is there a book that you would recommend to a middle school kid?
Corey: Well, I really love Harry Potter. Harry Potter is, like, literally my favorite.
Peyton: When I was in middle school, I read A Series of Unfortunate Events. I loved those ones. I loved those, so I think that’s one of my favorite book series.
What advice would you give to a kid who is being bullied?
Corey: Tell someone right away.
Peyton: Yeah. Same. Don’t let it affect you, and go straight to an adult.
Who’s a dream co-star from any past Disney show that you guys would want to work with?Peyton: Selena Gomez.
Corey: Ok. I think I want to work with Demi Lovato. I love Demi Lovato.
Corey, do you think kids have the power to change what’s going on in the world?
Corey: Oh, I definitely think that kids can do that because kids are our future generations and if we start young, we get into the habit. Everybody has the power to change the environment, but I think it’s really important that kids start young so they can build that habit up and then teach their kids.
Do you have an unusual talent that would surprise people?
Corey: Well, it’s not really unusual but I do sing and I tap dance. I’ve been tapping for about three years. I can also do this. [moves his eyebrows up and down one at a time]
Peyton: Hmm. I don’t really have any unusual ones, but I grew up playing sports – baseball, football and basketball. So, I’m really athletic.
