In a new interview with SheKnows.com, the 14-year-old actress and activist opened up about the future of the show, why the show works for all ages and that pesky “triangle”. Check it:
On the possible fourth season: “I know as much as you do. We are hoping for a Season 4, obviously, because we want to continue our story, and I feel like it’s an important story to tell. But as of right now, we just finished [filming] Season 3 and we’re still waiting on the word. But we do have more episodes coming out this year that air into early 2017, so we’re covered for a little bit.”
On the Riley-Lucas-Maya triangle that just wouldn’t end: “I think that’s the most important relationship on our show. People are always asking, ‘What do you ‘ship: Riley and Lucas or Maya and Lucas?’ And the entire time, the whole show has been about Riley and Maya’s friendship and how powerful it is and how it can withstand anything. We just used the triangle kind of as a metaphor for how Riley and Maya will never let a boy get between them, which I think is something we can really teach young girls because young girls are taught to cater to boys and to always be obsessed with them. I think our show definitely values sisterhood as its main theme.”
On why anyone, regardless of age, can relate to the show: “I think the way children’s shows present children is a reflection of how adults think of children. I think with our show, the staff thinks that children are super-intelligent and inquisitive and amazing, and I think that reflects on the writing. We don’t talk down to our audience; we talk to our audience. We know that these are issues that 12-year-olds know about — 12-year-olds know about STEM subjects and how there are girls lacking in that field, and they respect that we cover the topics.”
Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter are the definition of friendship goals in this pic, on and off screen, so it seems silly to us how anyone would think that they aren’t true friends.
But, that’s what did happen and Rowan, 14, is taking a little social media break from her Twitter account after hearing about fans thinking her friendship with just not Sabrina, but the entire cast of Girl Meets World isn’t real.
“I just wrapped and was just informed that there were horrendous rumors being spread about me and our cast,” she wrote earlier this week. “I don’t usually comment on anything like this, but I have spent the last half hour crying, confused as to why someone can stoop to such a low level to try and ruin the life of someone they don’t know personally.”
Rowan added, “I would never fake a friendship. The though of that makes me sick. The cast and I love each other more than anything, we have all had a hard time this week because of it being our possible last week.”
