Series Info


  • Joshua is only portrayed by Daniel Jacobs in Brave New World, otherwise he is portrayed by various babies.
  • Daniel Jacobs' appearance as Joshua in Brave New World severely alters the continuity of the show, as he should be much younger. This is a continuity error.
  • Joshua has a recurring role in the sequel series Girl Meets World, appearing as a teenager who has a close relationship with his older brother Cory and niece Riley. He's played by Uriah Shelton in Girl Meets World. He also becomes a love interest for Maya Hart.
