'Girl Meets World' scraps older brother character played by Teo Halm
It was a sad, sad weekend for would-be "Girl Meets World" star Teo Halm.
The Disney Channel has dropped Halm's older brother character from the forthcoming spin-off series, the actor revealed via Twitter on Saturday, stating:
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
Halm played Elliot Matthews - the son of "Boy Meets World" lovebirds Corey and Topanga Matthews (Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel) and the older brother of Riley and Louis (Rowan Blanchard and August Maturo) - in the show's pilot episode, which will now presumably be re-shot.
Attempting to soothe Halm's disappointment was Fishel, who responded to Halm's tweet with her own:
@TeoHalm Teo, you are an incredible talent and I adore you. You may still call me "mom." :)— Danielle Fishel (@daniellefishel) October 6, 2013
@daniellefishel That means so much to me. Thanks "mom"??— Teo Halm (@TeoHalm) October 6, 2013
"Girl Meets World" is set to debut sometime next year.
