19 year old Corey Fogelmanis has certainly

come a long way since his days as

Farkle on Disney Channel’s Girl Meets

World. Since the show’s ending in 2017,

Fogelmanis has become one of the most

promising young actors in Hollywood,

specifically as he delves into the horror

genre with his starring role in this year’s

upcoming horror film Ma alongside Octavia

Spencer, Juliette Lewis, and Luke Evans

among other seasoned professionals, and

his upcoming episode of Hulu’s Into the

Dark. His growth in the entertainment

industry is a reflection of his personal

transition from adolescence to adulthood,

something certainly visible on set of his

Bello photoshoot where he owned the

studio with complete confidence.

While his experience on Girl Meets World

was certainly formative, Fogelmanis is

grateful to be able to work on new and

exciting projects like Ma. “As I’ve grown

as a person, the most important thing for

me was to find projects that gave me the

opportunity to translate that growth into my

acting. I was super excited about working

on this movie because there were so many

aspects of it that I didn’t previously have in

other work. Elements of sexuality and

maturity and realism were all things I was

excited about in the initial script and I think

it’s really cool that people will get to see

parts of me they’ve never seen before. I’m

all about little baby steps of growth. Filming

Ma was that and so much more for me,”

said Fogelmanis on his transition from

Disney Channel to the horror genre.

Just as the audience gets to see a new side

of Fogelmanis, the obstacles he faced,

including the challenging climax of the film,

and the opportunity to learn from veteran

performers helped Fogelmanis grow as an

actor. “I walked away from this experience

with a true understanding of what makes

a professional in this field. Both Octavia

and Juliette came in each day with such

intense focus and perspective and for me,

watching them in their element was, should

I say, a masterclass in acting? Yes. I felt

that the way they balanced work and play

in between takes was beneficial for me to

observe. I unfortunately didn’t have any

scenes with Luke in the film, despite the

fact that he plays my father! But I did get to

meet him and he’s so cool,” said
