Looks like Corey and Topenga's daughter has a new BFF. EW reports that Disney Channel has cast 13-year-old Sabrina Carpenter in the role of the "rebellious best friend" of Riley Matthews, played by Rowan Blanchard.
The actress is also a talented singer who already has a first single out under the Hollywood Records label. Titled "Smile", the track was included on the Disney Fairies CDs, Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust, and charted on Radio Disney's top 30. (Check out the song and video here!)
Her TV credits include Fox's comedy project The Goodwin Games. The actress will guest starred in an episode of Disney Channel's hit Austin and Ally in the coming months.
Disney is currently looking to cast additional roles for the upcoming TV sequel including:
- Elliott Matthews, 13. Cory and Topanga's son, who will begin the series as a "thinking man's jock." He's described as "good looking, well built, funny and insightful in his observations. Good hearted except for his dedication toward using Riley (Blanchard) as his wrestling practice dummy. His parents worry that he has inherited the 'Eric Matthews Algernon' gene and will lose intelligence as time goes by."
- Tristan Friar, 12-13. An Austin, Texas transplant who's a "cowboy in the city," described as, "He seems actually possessed of ethics, common sense and a value system making him immediately alien to everybody else except Riley, who believes it's the value system that attracts her to want to be his friend even though he's too good looking for her to look at."
- Shamus Farkle, 12-13: Described as, "Future world ruler. Riley's rebellious best friend Maya is his nemesis, Riley gets between them to save his life. Farkle is wildly attached and protective of both Girls and loves equally that Riley doesn't make him miserable and Maya does."
