Boy Meets World: 10 Things I bet Even the Biggest Fans Didn’t Know.



No. 3 – Trina McGee (Angela) Was Much Older Than Rider Strong

Most of the actors on Boy Meets World played characters who were around their same age, which is one of the reasons why the show felt so real. But Trina McGee was the odd woman out. In the show, her character Angela is around the same age as Topanga, Cory and Shawn; however, in real life McGee was actually 12 years older than Fishel and 10 years older than Strong.

McGee is currently sitting at 46-years-old. Rider Strong will turn 36 in December, and even Will Friedle (Eric) is several years younger than McGee. He’s 39-years-old.



No. 2 – They Really Did Learn Together

It wasn’t all fun and games. Most of the gang was still in school when the show started filming, which means they all had to take classes while on set. Fishel explained that they were supposed to be separated during their lessons, but that never did work out.

“When we started the show, we had little sectioned off areas for each one of us to try to focus and work with our own individual teachers, but it always ended up being more like a regular school classroom with all of us chiming in and learning little bits of what everyone else was learning.”
