Actress Trina McGee has opened up about why she wasn’t in the ‘Boy Meets World’ series finale.
McGee, who played Angela Moore, Topanga’s (Danielle Fishel) best friend in college, for the past three seasons of the ABC sitcom, recently recalled her experience with the series ending in a chat for the podcast ” Pod Meets World”.
“I was told, in a weird and flippant way, a very important person that you were all going to see [showrunner] Michael Jacobs, and you said, ‘We don’t want her in the last episode. It kind of takes our light. That was the main thing,” McGee said.
She continued: “I was told that after shooting what the show was before the last episode, which was called ‘Angela’s Ashes’ when I left. When Michael announced that we were going to do another show on Angela, I was so glad I didn’t realize it would be the show before the last show.
Will Friedle, who played Eric Matthews on the ABC sitcom, denied the cast asked to drop McGee from the finale.
McGee replied, “I believe you. I can tell by your reactions. I’ve had this in my head for so long and never watched this show. I always felt like, uh… It hurt me for a long time.
