The Matthews are going to be one family member short when Girl Meets World premieres in 2014.
Teo Halm announced on Twitter over the weekend that his role as big brother Elliot Matthews had been cut from the spin-off show. The up-and-coming actor announced on Oct. 5, 2013:
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❤️— Teo Halm (@TeoHalm) October 5, 2013
Co-star Danielle Fishel, who plays Topanga on both Boy Meets World and Girl Meets World, responded to her former on-screen son's tweet, writing: "Teo, you are an incredible talent and I adore you. You may still call me 'mom.'"
This isn't the last you've heard of Teo Halm. He tweeted on Sunday, Oct. 6: "I'm working on James Franco's Bukowski and Dave Green's ECHO."
What do you think? Will Disney's Girl Meets World still be as good without Riley Matthews' (Rowan Blanchard) older brother? State your case in the comments.
