—Cory and Morgan Matthews

Morgan Matthews is the younger sister of Cory and Eric, the older sister of Joshua, and the only daughter to Amy and Alan. Mainly used for comedic purposes, the character of Morgan is usually annoying to Cory, and seems closer to Eric. She was initially played by Lily Nicksay, but was replaced by Lindsay Ridgeway in season 3. Throughout the series, it becomes clear that Morgan is a good singer, as shown in Better Than the Average Cory and Shallow Boy.

Series Info[]

  • Morgan was mostly there for comedic purposes for most of the show.
  • Eric often called her Weasel, which was her nickname during seasons 1 and 2.
  • Went on a very long timeout in the first half of season 3
  • A few times, members of the Matthews family tried or willed her to be more like a boy (most notably Cory in "Wheels")
  • Was nervous to sing at the talent show, but Alexandra Nechita convinced her to sing and she did well.
  • Stayed behind in Philadelphia with Alan and Amy while Eric and Cory moved to New York (she was a child, after all)
    • Cory asked her to "take care of mom and dad."
  • Appeared in the Girl Meets World finale "Girl Meets Goodbye" and assured her nephew Auggie that even though he is the youngest member of the family, his concerns are being heard and being taken into consideration. (In a surrealistic twist, both Lily and Lindsay appeared in the GMW finale as Morgan)

Alternate Personalities[]


  • Morgan was the most notable character to be portrayed by 2 actors: Lily Nicksay and Lindsay Ridgeway.
    • As a meta-joke, both actresses who played Morgan appeared in the Girl Meets World series finale.
