In Boy Meets World, a come-of-age comedy from the 1990s, William Daniels was one of the young actors they trusted to guide them on the right track. Just as he did as Mr. Feeny, Daniels is still there to offer advice to his castmates to this day.
Rider Strong, Danielle Fishel, and Will Friedle have just started a new podcast about their experiences on the iconic show. They talked to People about various topics related to their time on the show. To a person, all said William Daniels remains available to teach them whenever they need.
Will Friedle, who played Eric Matthews on the show, talked about his connection with the 95-year-old actor. He said that talking to him is wonderful. He still has the same intelligence and wit as when the program was broadcast.
He's still giving [advice]. He's been around for ninety-five years and still pours out the pearls of wisdom. He and his wife, Bonnie, also talk.
William Daniels offers excellent relationship advice, according to Danielle Fishel, who played Topanga. There's no wonder, either. Daniels has been married to his wife, Bonnie, since 1951. Fishel said his wisdom has helped her in a variety of relationships as she has grown.
The cast of the new Pod Meets World podcast includes a lot more of the cast talking about their TV and real-world mentors. Because of William Daniels' positive influence, the cast has remained close long after the program ended its run. That's Mr. Feeny's gift of wisdom.
