On the 5th of May, 1981, Danielle Christine Fishel came out into this world at the town of Mesa in the state of Arizona. Her engaging smile and appealing face granted her access to make more than a few small scale commercials, which served as a springing board for her to be seen in several more TV shows. Her talent was first recognized during her stint for commercials as a Barbie Girl for Mattel. More work for television soon followed, with her having a couple of appearances for Full House, including even one for Harry and the Hendersons. She was first given a guest role as Topanga Lawrence in 1993 for the new show for ABC, Boy Meets World. When the producers recognized her talent and personality fit well with the show, they gave Danielle a full-time spot on the show. The show ran for seven years, and ended with a marriage between her and her love interest in the show, Cory Matthews played by Ben Savage. After this she also had roles for TV movie Rockets Red Glare and Longshot, as well as movies National Lampoon Presents Dorm Daze, and the Chosen One. She was also named one of the 21 Hottest Stars Under 21 by Teen People.
