“I’ll go first,” said Danielle, who plays Topanga Lawrence. ‘I have a crush on Rider.’

The Girl Meets World star explained that she started to feel warm and unclear towards her co-stars after they started working together.

“I think it started maybe later in season 1 and definitely went through season 2,” he recalled. ‘Yes. I have a crush on Rider. I don’t know, he’s very smart.’

‘You know one of my favorite things about Rider, and it still holds true to this day, Rider is so overrated. He will tell you how he feels and he is very free with his compliments, but he doesn’t just throw it away. When Rider compliments you, it means, it has meaning, and you can tell… it’s coming from a very real place.’

Hopefully the disclosure does not make the atmosphere in the office becomes awkward. Danielle and Rider have hosted podcasts with former co-star Eric Friedle, 46, since releasing their first episode on June 15.

Danielle is happily married to producer Jensen Karp, 42, and they are the parents of two, Adler, three, and Keaton, one. Rider has been married to actress Alexandra Barreto, 46, since 2013 and they share Indigo, seven.

Whether there will be a reboot of the ’90s hit series that still enjoys a dedicated fan base remains unclear. Ben Savage, 41, who plays Cory Matthews, is trying his hand at politics. He is running for a seat on the city council in West Hollywood, California.
