Teo Halm, the 13-year-old actor who was set to play Elliot, shared the news on Twitter Saturday. " So guys, Disney decided that it wouldn't work to have an older brother on the show; I won't be on Girl Meets World. Thank you to everyone," he wrote.
Fishel seems to be settling into her role as a mother nicely, as she responded: "Teo, you are an incredible talent and I adore you. You may still call me 'mom.' :)"
Halm wrote back: "That means so much to me. Thanks 'mom.'"
Riley will still have one sibling on the show — a younger brother named Louis(August Maturo).
