Boy Meets World

Trina McGee, the fan-favorite Angela Moore in ABC’s Boy Meets World, has opened up about her time on set and why she wasn’t within the collection finale.

Premiering in September 1993, the sitcom ran for seven seasons and adopted its protagonist, Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), from center college to school, and all of the cringey moments in between. In addition to Savage and McGee, the collection starred Danielle Fishel as Topanga Lawrence, Rider Strong as Shawn Hunter, and Will Friedle as Eric Matthews.

McGee joined the predominately white sitcom in season 5 as a recurring character, and was later added as a collection common. Despite her time on Boy Meets World ending early, she reprised her function within the Disney Channel spinoff, Girl Meets World. 

In an episode of Pod Meets World, hosted by Fishel, Strong, and Friedle, McGee was questioned about her absence from the collection finale. “I used to be instructed, in a bizarre, offhanded manner, by a vital individual, that you simply all went to Michael Jacobs [showrunner] and also you mentioned, ‘We don’t need her within the final episode,’” defined the actor.

She went on to say her character-centric episode, “Angela’s Ashes,” which premiered instantly earlier than the two-parter finale, was placed on her radar earlier than she found that she wasn’t going to be within the finale. “That was very hurtful to me, for a very long time. And to make it worse, individuals of shade have a tendency to look into issues just a little tougher, so I had cousins calling me saying, ‘How come you weren’t within the final episode?’”

The three hosts reacted in shock and denied that occurred (a lot to McGee’s appreciation). “I swear on my marriage and my spouse that by no means, ever occurred,” mentioned Friedle. “You say that’s competitiveness. That’s not competitiveness to me, that’s sociopathy.”

“I consider you, I can inform by your reactions,” mentioned McGee.

Fishel added, “Someone instructed you one thing that’s very unfaithful, and harm you, and other people know that they will get you to really feel a sure manner by enjoying to the competitiveness and realizing, ‘Oh, Danielle is so checked out, they’re not going to have this dialog.’”

Earlier within the podcast, McGee mentioned the present left her “annoyed” and the “powers that be” would pit them towards each other. “I felt that my respect stage was not appreciated.”

During her time on the present, McGee requested the showrunner for her first character-centric episode, “Angela’s Man.” She claims the episode made the Nielsen rankings soar from 17 to 52, but she wasn’t given correct credit score for the success. Additionally, she handled microagressions and racist feedback on set which made her really feel “small.”
