Now that news is buzzing that a popular ’90s comedy is blasting back onto TV screens, one of the show’s stars is being singled out. Earlier this week the Disney Channel confirmed that it is developing a spin-off of ABC’s “Boy Meets World” featuring several of the original cast members. Centered on Corey (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel), the program will follow the life of their young daughter, Riley, with the working title “Girl Meets World.”
“I’m going to be a father! Well, on TV at least,” Ben Savage tweeted this week about the news.
Since the announcement, social media has been abuzz with fans searching for other cast members to inquire about. One such cast member fans dug up online is actress Trina McGee, who played the only black lead on the show, Angela. Angela was the girlfriend of Corey Matthew’s best friend, Shawn, and viewers watched the couple struggle to stay together amid the normal strains of teen dating. Since then, however, McGee’s been virtually absent in the world of acting sans a few minor roles including one in the film ‘Friday After Next.’
Now married and going by Trina Collette, the celeb looks surprisingly different and as many have noted, a few shades lighter in skintone. After a gossip rag noted that the star looked like a “white woman” McGee posted the message below to one of her fans.
@twitney Don’t worry girl. No work done, just taking care of my mind, body and soul.

No word yet on whether McGee will be added to the “Girl Meets World” cast.
