'Girl Meets World': Disney Series Adds Sabrina Carpenter As New Best Friend

Make way for the modern day Sean Hunter!

Only days after Rowan Blanchard won the role of Corey and Topanga's daughter Riley, EW is reporting that Riley's best friend will be played by Sabrina Carpenter on "Girl Meets World."

The 13-year-old actress, who is best known for her singing career -- she's signed to Hollywood Records -- will play the rebellious Maya Fox.

Additionally, the series is still looking for young actors and actresses to play the roles of Elliot Matthews, Corey and Topanga's son, a new kid from Texas named Tristan Friar, and a Minkus-like student named Shamus Farkle, described as a "future world ruler."

"Girl Meets World" is set premiere during Disney's 2013-2014 schedule. In the meantime, check out Sabrina Carpenter covering Sinead O'Conner's "Nothing Compares To You."
