Watching your favorite child actor/actress grow up is one of the most amazing and wonderful experience you could ever have. For most Americans, Ben Savage has been outstanding and has everything it takes to become a Hollywood legend, having made his first TV appearance at the age of five.
Although Savage first made his on-screen appearance at age 5, his acting career got into full swing when he turned eight. At the beginning of his career, he played minor roles in many television series and shows until 1993 when his role as Cory Matthews in Boy Meets World skyrocketed him to stardom.
Nineteen years later, precisely in 2012, Savage was asked to reprise his role in the spin-off – Girl Meets World. The series was renewed two years later for its second and then in 2015 for its third season, putting a great sum of money on Ben’s table.
Truth is, the A-lister has been having a flourishing career since he joined the movie industry. As he would always mention, all credit for his blossoming career goes to his elder brother who played pivotal roles in shaping his acting career.
As he would have us believe, his elder brother offered him his first film role in his movie Little Monsters in 1989, which eventually turned out to be one of his biggest and lucrative projects.
Some of Savage’s notable roles are seen in movies and TV series like Big Girls Don’t Cry… They Get Even (1992), Clifford (1994), The Wonder Years, She Woke Up (1992), Dear John (1988), Still Standing as Seth Cosella, Palo Alto (a 2006 critically acclaimed independent film), Peace and Riot, and many more.
A big fan of American singer-songwriter and musician Bruce Springsteen, Ben Savage took a three-year break from acting just to accompany his music idol on his tour around the country.
At the moment, however, he is fully back to what he loves doing.
