And as a sequel to Boy Meets World, there is always a constant stream of old favorites reprising their roles—William Daniels as Mr. Feeny, Lee Norris as Stuart Minkus, Rider Strong as Shawn Hunter, and Will Friedle as Eric Matthews, just to name a few.
Picking a favorite memory from set is hard, but Carpenter said one moment sticks out as a particularly hilarious moment.
“At the end of Season 1, we had a coffee truck on set, and Rowan and I both had too much of some ice blended drinks and literally came on set [bouncing up and down] for the next thing to film—and when I say bouncing up and down, I mean it. We couldn’t use any of the takes,” she laughed.
Her next project is Disney’s Further Adventures in Babysitting, a stand-alone sequel to 1987’s Adventures in Babysitting. She plays one half of a babysitting duo, the organized and straight-laced half, who must work together when the kids sneak out.
But even with her acting roles taking off, Carpenter hasn’t forgotten about her first love of singing. She released her debut album, Eyes Wide Open, in April of this year.
“I learned more about myself in the past two years than I think a human should,” Carpenter said. “But I think it was great because it taught me so much. There’s so much behind things that you don’t understand until you’re actually in the process of making your first album.”
Carpenter originally signed with Hollywood Records when she was 12, before Girl Meets World, and began the recording process when she was 13. She had originally begun to post videos on YouTube, covering some of her favorite artists like Christina Aguilera, Adele, and the Beatles.
But she was filming the first season of Girl Meets World while simultaneously writing an album, and all before she was even old enough to drive. Because the process took three years, Carpenter said the album is a representation of where she was at between the ages of 13 and 15.
“I took inspiration from life and situations and feelings, but listening to music as I’m writing gives me so many ideas,” she said.
Without skipping a beat, Carpenter is back in the studio working on new music, drawing lyrical and musical inspiration from artists such as Hozier and Zella Day. And because she likes to keep herself busy, she’s also learning the piano, guitar, drums, and ukulele.
Though she doesn’t have a tour planned now, she said she’s hoping to plan some performances for the new year. “Touring is one of my favorite parts because you get to see people’s reactions to your music,” she said.
While she’s recording, filming, and learning new instruments, she also still has a year and a half of high school left, and is working on new projects for the new year. 2016 is going to be a big year for Carpenter, and we all get to watch her shine.
