Girl Meets World might be over for good, but the legacy will forever live on, especially since the cast is so close in real life. Rowan Blanchard brought the one and only Riley Matthews to life and while she's since moved on to new projects, recently guest-starring on The Goldbergs, Row admitted GMW was where she truly learned so much and was basically the equivalent of a high school experience.
"My favorite part about being in Girl Meets World was having this amazing camp that I got to go to for four years, where I learned basically 75% of the stuff I know in general," Rowan said to The Huffington Post's weekly newsletter The Tea. "I was allowed to explore and experiment with so many acting choices and so many identities, and that was a really safe space. I don’t think of that as work, I guess what I picture it as is high school."
How amazing that to hear? Since she worked on the series for the same amount of time a person would naturally attend high school, she thinks back on this time being on the show like someone would view their time going to high school. Granted, she was working on a Disney Channel TV series instead of sitting in biology class and sweating it out on P.E., but it's all the same overall experiences and life lessons you learn along the way!
So while her days as Riley might be done, the actress has since been busy filming movies, like the upcoming A Wrinkle In Time that will be released next April of 2018, and a book.
"I just finished the first edit of a cool art book that I’m doing with Random House, so I’m really excited about that. It’s basically one shared diary between a bunch of young artists," Rowan explained. "I think a lot of the things that are aimed toward young people are made by adults, and have a voice that may seem a little patronizing, and I wanted to make something that seemed like it was inclusive and real. I’ve been working on it for two and a half years so it felt really good to turn something in!"
Filming TV and movies roles, plus creating this cool book. Clearly Rowan is unstoppable! She can also sing too, but she made it cleat she doesn't see herself ever going down the pop star route, like her GMW co-star Sabrina Carpenter. She would consider something on Broadway though.
"I don’t necessarily see myself making music, but I really love musical theater and Broadway. Getting involved with that would be so cool," Rowan said.
So she's not planning on dropping any albums but maybe she'll show off her impressive vocals up on stage one day. We'll just have to wait and see!
