According to Urban Dictionary, Topanga means “beautiful or spectacular.” This isn’t a reference to the natural splendor of the canyon outside L.A.; it’s in honor of a TV character played by the gorgeous Danielle Fishel. The 31-year-old portrayed a smart, sassy teen by that name on the ’90s coming-of-age sitcom Boy Meets World. The show followed the exploits of typical teen Cory (Ben Savage), his pal Shawn (Rider Strong), and his girlfriend, Topanga. Well, our favorite couple is getting back together for a sequel series, Girl Meets World, in which Cory and Topanga are now the parents of a teenage girl. To celebrate this momentous pop-culture occasion, Danielle agreed to fulfill our decades-old fantasy and pose for a shoot of historic proportions. Please enjoy, and don’t worry…we won’t tell Mr. Feeny.
