Girl Meets World is a show that has already has given the TV world some of the most memorable characters, with Farkle Minkus at the top of the list. Corey Fogelmanis effortlessly plays the uber-smart, yet always lovable, honest and real character. Those who are Boy Meets World fans might feel like he's kind of familiar in a way, and that's all because he plays Stuart Minkus' son, and Minkus was a huge part of the early BMW seasons. In a recent interview though, Corey spoke about how he never really felt any pressure to try and be like the original character at all.
"I think we’ve made it pretty clear that Farkle is his own person. They both have very unforgettable quirks in their personalities and they’re both very empathetic towards others, but it was never a matter of recreating Minkus in Farkle. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even know Farkle was a Minkus until about halfway through season one," Corey dished.
Woah, so when the audience found out and was totally surprised to discover that Farkle is a part of the Minkus family, Corey was just as shocked too!
That is actually beyond interesting to find out and Corey really is doing a stellar job at portraying Farkle in a completely new, refreshing way. His character is really one of a kind! He went on to explain that he really does appreciate the important life lessons the show is making sure to always get out to viewers too.
"One of the main themes we’re pushing in the show is the value of friendship. We have a saying that goes along with it: people change people; which is basically saying that the people you surround yourself with have an effect on who you will become as a person and I think that’s so interesting. I’d never really thought about friendship that way but it’s totally true," Corey said.
And that's the secret of life right there. At least in the GMW universe!
