Veteran actress Jackee Harry has been part of plenty of sitcoms over the years. Anyone who grew up in the nineties or had kids who grew up in the nineties may remember her best from the sitcom, Sister, Sister, where she played a seamstress and mother. Now, Harry will be lending her acting talents to the Girl Meets World pilot, another kid-friendly project that is headed to the Disney Channel.
If you’ve been keeping tabs on Girl Meets World, you should already know it is the sequel to Boy Meets World, one of the more successful programs airing during ABC’s TGIF block and a show that was later featured on the Disney Channel in reruns. According to THR, there’s currently no word on exactly what sort of character Harry will be playing, but we’ll keep you updated as new details emerge, and until then, feel free to make your own guesstimates.
Harry joins a long list of cast members already involved with Girl Meets World. Cory and Topanga (Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel) will reprise their roles from the original series, and Rowan Blanchard has signed on to play the couple’s daughter, Riley, while Teo Halm will play the couple’s son, Elliot. Overall, casting seems to be coming together pretty nicely, and while I won’t say this one is a shoe-in at the network, with evidence that Mr. Feeny will also be reprising his former role, I will say things are looking pretty good for Girl Meets World.
