Porn star Maitland Ward says she makes more in adult films than she ever did as a Disney actress

Former Disney star, Maitland Ward, says she is making more money as an adult actress than she did when she was younger. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Maitland Ward who was the star of ABC/Disney Channel’s ‘Boy Meets World’ where she played the college girl from Texas, Rachel McGuire, trying to get around romances, said, “When people say, ‘She had to turn to porn,’ I laugh because this is a good thing and I’m making more now. If you talked to my younger, more virginal soap-opera self, I never would have seen this coming out of me.”

Ward has been nominated for two AVN Awards for Best Three-Way Sex Scene and Best Supporting Actress. The 42-year-old actress said, “It’s insane! At my age, to come in and become a porn star? I don’t have a label either. I’m just this grown woman who loves sex. One thing I really like is to surprise people, to shock them, and to get them stirred up. I’m going to keep doing that.”

The actor said she just didn’t want to be a Disney mom after being “typecast” as “a wholesome comedy star.” In 2013, the actress rose to fame after cosplaying at comic conventions and her sexy pictures made their way to her social media. “I had a publicist who was like, ‘Stop putting up sexy pictures. They will not hire you for anything if you do that. Once you get past 30, 35, they don’t hire you for doing sexy stuff. You should be auditioning to play Disney moms’,” she says. “He thought he was giving me good advice but it just wasn’t my thing. I was typecast. I was seen as a wholesome comedy star, and I was trying to fight against that. I didn’t want to play a Disney mom.”

She said that her career in porn was accidental. She was requested by her ever-growing Instagram followers for adult content and she went on to set up a Snapchat Premium account. She also set up a Patreon account later and “for 2018, I was the No 1 adult-content creator for Patreon. And it put the power back in my hands. Studios wouldn’t give me that,” she said.

Ward is also very popular on OnlyFans where she says she’s made upto $62,000 in 2018.
