We were there for Cory Matthew's biggest moments in life: his first kiss, his first fight, the first time he drank beer—the list goes on and on. While Mr. Matthews started off the series as your average adolescent sports-loving, prioritizing friends-over-studying C-student, fans grew up with Cory and watched him become a loyal man with a kind heart.
Savage graduated from Stanford in 2004 with a degree in political science and continued to pop up on TV (Party of Five, Chuck) and the occasional indie film, but sweetheart Danielle Fishel reprised their roles on the 2014 Disney Channel spin-off Girl Meets World, featuring Cory and Topanga, who got married at the end of the original series, as parents of daughter Riley.
Since that show ended in 2017, Savage (who, incidentally, is Fred Savage's little brother) has appeared on shows such as The Leftovers, Speechless, Criminal Minds (as a young Jason Gideon) and Homeland (as young Saul, making that two gigs playing a Mandy Patinkin character as a younger man). His Instagram indicates he has a girlfriend (they went to a wedding together in November 2019 and celebrated his mom Joanne's birthday in L.A.), but he has kept her identity private.
