Actor Teo Halm has been dropped from the new Boy Meets World spin-off.

The Nova star was cast as the older brother of Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel's Tv daughter, Riley Matthews, but producers at Disney decided the show, Girl Meets World, would work better without the character.

Halm broke the news on on Saturday (05Oct13), writing, "So guys, Disney decided that it wouldn't work to have an older brother on the show; I won't be on Girl Meets World. Thank you to everyone".

Responding to Halm's message, Fishel wrote, "Teo, you are an incredible talent and I adore you. You may still call me mom."

Savage and Fishel played teenage sweethearts in the original show, which ran from 1993 to 2000.
