How did Maitland Ward become famous?

Even though it may seem as though Maitland's name and face are all over the place now, that wasn't always the case. She cut her chops in the acting world as Jessica Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful from 1994 to 1996 at just 16 years old.

Maitland then went on to secure guest roles on the likes of shows such as USA High and Home Improvement as well as the 1997 television film Killing Mr. Griffin.

In 1998, Maitland's Boy Meets World character Rachel McGuire was added to the fray, which ended up becoming Maitland's most famous conventional acting role. On top of that, she also appeared in films such as Dish Dogs and White Chicks.

However, after a few years working as a cosplayer at various comic conventions, Maitland made her most famous transition to date: creating pornographic content.

Around mid-2013, Maitland began posting suggestive images on both Instagram and Snapchat, which caused her following on both platforms to swell, per Mel Magazine. In 2016 she shared images of herself being completely covered in body paint for a Luciano Paesani art exhibition called "Living Art."

By 2019, she starred in her first official pornographic film titled Drive.

In the time since Maitland's popularity as an adult actress has blossomed. According to the NY Post, Maitland's porn career is netting her more money than traditional acting ever did.

"When people say, 'She had to turn to porn,' I laugh because this is a good thing and I’m making more now," she joked with the publication, revealing that in her best month of 2018 she netted $62,000 from OnlyFans. Talk about a nice chunk of change!
