Actor William Daniels, 91, best known by many for his role as George Feeny on the hit TV series "Boy Meets World," successfully stopped an attempted burglary at his home in the Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles, California this past weekend, according to a police report.
Daniels and his 89-year-old wife, actress Bonnie Bartlett, were at home on Saturday evening when an intruder forced open their back door just before 9:30 p.m., a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed on Tuesday.
“Someone tried to break in to the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Daniels on Saturday evening," the actor's publicist, Sharon Ellman, told CNN on Tuesday.
Daniels' "Boy Meets World" costar Will Friedle, who played Eric Matthews, tweeted about the incident and praised his on-screen teacher/neighbor.
Some of his other notable roles include Dr. Mark Craig on "St. Elswhere" -- which also starred Bartlett as his on-screen wife -- Mr. Braddock in "The Graduate," Arthur Lestrange in "The Blue Lagoon" and the voice of K.I.T.T., a talking automobile in the TV series "Knightrider."
They have been married since 1951 and have two adopted sons: Michael, who works as a stage manager in Los Angeles, and Robert, an artist and computer graphics designer in New York City.
