Disney announced that it is announcing that it will be releasing “Girl Meets World”, but decided to cut it one actor short. The Matthews will be losing the older brother on the series who was to be played by Teo Halm.
The young actor announced on Twitter over the weekend that his role as big brother Elliot Matthews had been cut from the spin off of the popular series, Boy Meets World. “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.”
Co-star Danielle Fishel responded to the young actor, writing, “Teo, you are an incredible talent and I adore you. You may still call me ‘mom’.” Fishel will reprise her role as the lovable, and quite attractive, Topanga.
A representative from Disney Channel confirmed the news. “Various creative changes are often made as a project transitions from pilot to series,” a rep told TVLine. Girl Meets World would have featured a three children household with Helm as the eldest son.
The series will be set in New York City and will follow the daughter of Cory and Topanga, Riley Matthews, as she goes through middle school. The series is set to air in 2014.
