Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1[on relationships with Boy Meets World cast] What I always like about good friendships and relationships is that it does not matter how much time it's been, you can immediately sit down and start talking where thinks left off.
2[on relationship with Rider Strong] I guess when you grow up with someone and you spend so much time with them, you don't need to talk to them and see them all the time. I think you could say that about anyone your close with.
3[on Girl Meets World] I think once we kind of checked off all the things on our checklist, the choice was easy, but there was a lot of talk. But it all came together.
