Will Friedle has a new interview out that he did while in Australia. In it he talks about his anxiety, getting married, Boy Meets World and my personal favorite an Eric Matthews spin off! I have posted the part where he talks about Boy Meets World and the spin off. If you would like to read the rest of the interview you can do so at this link:

Boy Meets World was such a ’90s cultural phenomenon. Was it as much fun for you to make as it was for us all to watch?

Probably more so. While it was a big part of people’s lives during the ’90s, it was still just a half hour a week for the fans. For us, it was 24/7 for seven years. This was a show that was at a certain port in our lives that was so important to all of us. I was 16 when it started. Ben [Savage, who played Cory] was 11 when I met him. Danielle [Fishel, who played Topanga] was 11 when I met her. We really were like a family. It was an absolutely formidable part of growing up, and we did it together and we did it in front of a camera.

Any on-set mischief?

The guys – Ben, Rider [Strong, who played Shawn], Matthew [Lawrence, who played Jack], and myself – put together this ridiculous dance to the Backstreet Boys that we’d do in front of the audience every week. They’d push the cameras back and we’d do this lip-sync dance. We had an absolute blast.
Please tell me you all have a Boy Meets World cast group text.
We have two group texts going! Rider, Ben, Danielle, and I text pretty regularly. And I see or speak to Rider and Ben all the time. It’s a ton of fun.

And I saw William Daniels [Mr. Feeny] about a month or two ago. When he was working on his book, we went out to lunch, and he was asking me all kinds of Boy Meets World questions. And, of course, we were all in the final episode of [Disney Channel’s reboot series] Girl Meets World.

Do strangers ever do the Feeny call – FE-E-E-ENY! – when they see you in public?

I hear it all the time. It happens at least once a week where I’ll be somewhere, and I’ll hear the Feeny call. I’m not sick of it. It’s how they get my attention, and it’s usually from behind me and far away. I just hear it over my shoulder. Rarely does it ever come from someone standing in front of me in close range.

Did you keep any mementos from set?

I have a John Adams High Athletic Dept. sweatshirt! Also, you weren’t allowed to have brand names on TV back in the day, so our prop guy, whose name was Mark Papson, would put his name on things. So, I have a can of Dr. Papson because we couldn’t have Dr. Pepper. It was little things like that that I saved. I didn’t take anything big, though I wanted to take the red couch.

Girl Meets World was so well-received. Any chance of an Eric Matthews spin-off next?

There’s been talks for a while of doing something with Eric. Whether it’s an Eric Meets World kind of show, who knows. But I can almost guarantee you that you haven’t seen the last of Eric Matthews. You’ll be able to see him again… sometime soon.
