Danielle Fishel C2E2 2023

Who didn't love Topanga, the popular character on television's Boy Meets World? I am happy to report Danielle Fishel, Topanga's portrayer, is just as awesome.

I have met Fishel several times and she somehow seems t get nicer each time. The first time I met her, she had no handler. I wasn't as skilled with selfies then, but nobody was around to help. Undaunted, Fishel didn't skip a beat in offering her selfie skills and she did a great job. The next day, as I walked through the con, Fishel waved me over to her booth. For whatever reason, she said we should take another selfie. Like I would decline?

Last year, at C2E2, I told Tony how nice she was and asked him if he wanted to join me in seeing her again. Never one to pass on a good offer, Tony agreed. She was just as awesome as the other times. I think I took this selfie though (my skills have improved a bit).

People ask me why I would meet a celebrity more than once. Fishel is the perfect answer. It's such a pleasant experience. When the celeb is that nice, it makes me want to see them again. Granted, I won't see her at every convention, that would be cost-prohibitive. Fishel doesn't really charge that much for pictures or autographs, but with so many celebs at these conventions, budgets dictate choices be made. Still, I will go back to Fishel often.

While C2E2 already took place, New York Comic Con (run by the same folks who run C2E2) is coming October 14-17. Go to for more info. I hope to see you there, but honestly, I hope to see Fishel there more!
