Imagine you are 12 years old, you are having one of your first experiences acting, you end up having a lead role and the director doesn’t like your work and threatens to fire you. That is what happened to this star of Boy Meets World, Danielle Fishel.


 Playing Topanga on the series, Fishel had her breakthrough role. Nevertheless, she received an ultimatum from director, Michael Jacobs, on the first day on set.

Danielle spoke very quickly all of her lines and the production did not like that at all. Jacobs went through every single one of her lines and correcting the way she said each one of them.

“All I know is, if you don't come back tomorrow doing this entirely differently, you are also not going to be here,” warned Jacobs.

What happened in the end?

Fishel and her mother stayed up all night going over her lines and her hard work payed off. She was congratulated the next day by Michael Jacobs and the production: “Thank you, thank you. Congratulations, it was wonderful.”
