William — who commands $150 on his Cameo — joined a restaurant for a festive birthday dinner on Saturday with Anthony Tyler Quinn, Daniel Fishel, Ryder Strong, Will Friedel, William Daniels and Trina McGee.

Last Friday, the same group gathered on the main stage of Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo 2023 for a nostalgic panel and the audience serenaded Daniels with a happy birthday song.

“I think Mr. Finney has become me,” William admitted on stage.

I suppose what I remember most is the last episode. And all of them, one by one, left the stage. You know, the part I’ve been playing can be very elusive and demanding. So I thought, I wanted to speak my mind.

And I just said to them, who were going to leave the stage, “I love you all.” And that was one of my favorite moments on the show.

Daniels also recalled the moment when a school bus full of kids once chanted “Vinnie! Weak!” at him in the street and ran from behind. I couldn’t handle it.

“I never realized that Mr. Feeney had become such a familiar figure to people,” the Northwestern University graduate said on stage.

A good actor will try to bring as much of themselves as possible into the part on the written page in order to become real to the audience. And actors who forget that don’t do very well.

And that’s what I did. And certainly with these wonderful people that I’ve been working with, I brought myself up to it as well as Mr. Feeny, and that seemed to work out well.

William later reprized his beloved character in five episodes of the Michael Jacobs and April Kelly continuation, Girl Meets World, which aired for three seasons on Disney Channel spanning from 2014-2017.

Fans who missed the Boy Meets World 30th Anniversary reunion can catch the next event that will happen at That 4 Entertainment’s 90s Con Florida, which runs from September 15-17 in Tampa.

Together, we can do better. I am a proud Californian, union member, longtime resident of the District 30, and come from a family of unwavering service to our country and community,” the 42-year-old former child star books.

I firmly believe in standing up for what is right, ensuring equality and expanding opportunities for all. I am running for Congress because it is time to restore faith in government by providing reasonable, innovative, and compassionate solutions to our country’s most pressing issues.

It is time for new, motivated leaders who can help move our country forward. Leaders who want to see government functioning at its full potential, unimpeded by political divisions and vested interests. Please join our movement!
