About Danielle Fishel
In her first appearance on the show in 1993, Fishel was originally to play a minor role, but was upgraded to Topanga, the girlfriend of Ben Savage's character Cory Matthews. On the show, the seriousness of the relationship between Topanga and Cory often belied their youth. Of the two, Topanga was the more free-spirited, and Fishel, with her striking features and girl-next-door appeal successfully portrayed a character who is quite mature, yet still very much a child. Fishel has also made guest appearances on the ABC sitcom "Full House", and the short lived series "Kirk" on The WB.
