Her name is Riley Matthews (well, really, no; it’s actually Rowan Blanchard) and she’s the namesake offspring in ‘Girl Meets World’.

From E! Online:

Girl Meets World, Disney Channel’s spinoff of Boy Meets World, has cast the role of Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga’s (Danielle Fishel) daughter. Rowan Blanchard, 11, has landed the role of Riley after a national casting search, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The pilot, which is told from Riley’s point-of-view, was just officially picked up by the network, is set to begin shooting in February.

“As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded of why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews,” Michael Jacobs, the project’s executive producer, tells EW. “Rowan is real and accessible and I am hopeful this girl is about to meet a world that will love growing up with her as well.”

Oh, and she sings, too. Very well:
