Actress and TV Personality; Best Known for her Role as Topanga Lawrence on "Boy Meets World"
Danielle Fishel is an actress and television personality best known for her role as Topanga Lawrence on the 1990s TV sitcom "Boy Meets World" and as the host of Style Network's "The Dish." She also appeared in "National Lampoon's Dorm Daze" and its sequel and was a spokesperson for NutriSystem.
In 1991, the then 10-year-old Fishel was discovered in a community theater where she performed in two productions, "The Wizard of Oz" and "Peter Pan." She quickly moved on to do voice-overs and commercials, including several as a "Barbie Girl" for Mattel. Soon after, she appeared on two episodes of the hit show "Full House," guest starring as a character named Jennifer. She also had a small role on "Harry and the Hendersons," playing Jessica. Fishel's mother became her full-time manager.
In 1993, at the age of 12, Fishel began her well-known role as Topanga Lawrence on ABC's pilot series "Boy Meets World." Originally written as a small part, Topanga became a recurring role. After a successful first year, Fishel became a show regular. Fishel's character was a sparky, intelligent girl who was mature beyond her years; she replaced the nerdy Stuart Minkus as the brains of the class. The long-running show ended in 2000 after seven years.
Fishel was on the cover of Seventeen in December 1998. She took home a 1998 Young Star for Best Performance by a Young Actress in a Comedy TV Series. In June 1999, she was one of "The 21 Hottest Stars Under 21" as presented by Teen People. Fishel was on the cover of GQ's hottest stars to watch in GQ's 1997 September issue.
Since "Boy Meets World" ended, Fishel has appeared in several films, including "National Lampoon's Dorm Daze." In 2006, she appeared in three made-for-DVD releases: "National Lampoon's Dorm Daze 2: College at Sea" (appearing again as "Marla" from the first film), the action film" Gamebox 1.0" (playing a dual role) and "The Chosen One," an independent animated film in which she provides the voice of the lead female character.
In 2006, Fishel appeared as a guest on The Tyra Banks Show where she discussed her dramatic weight loss with the use of the Nutrisystems Diet. Following her appearance on the show, Fishel became a spokesperson for NutriSystem. She also became a special correspondent for The Tyra Banks Show, starting in early February 2007.
From August 2008 to March 2011, Fishel hosted "The Dish" for the Style Network, which satirized pop culture in a format similar to sister network E! Entertainment Television's "The Soup." Fishel was also on Fuse TV as host of The Fuse 20 and was a guest star on the round table on an episode of "Chelsea Lately."
In 2013, Fishel starred in the controversial drama, "Boiling Pot," which is based on true events of racism that occurred on college campuses across the country during the 2008 Presidential election. She is set to reprise the role of Topanga for the upcoming 2014 "Boy Meets World" spinoff "Girl Meets World."
