The newly-minted XBIZ Crossover Star of the Year is a stunning redhead named Maitland Ward, whom you may recognize from her mainstream Hollywood roles in TV and film. Maybe you know Maitland from all of her sexy cosplays on the fan convention circuit, which have included Princess Leia and Red Sonja. If that doesn’t jog your memory, then maybe you’ve seen some of Maitland’s topless and nude photos that she began posting on social media several years ago. It’s hard to forget a body like Maitland’s, with her perky tits, firm ass, and long legs.
Maitland was 42 when she entered the porn industry, and yet she’s as sexy as women half her age, if not more so. Born in Long Beach, California on February 3, 1977, Maitland was a teenager when she began appearing in TV shows. Her first role was Jessica Forrester on “The Bold and the Beautiful” from 1994-96. From there she had guest appearances on “Home Improvement,” and in 1998 she joined the main cast of “Boy Meets World” as a character named Rachel McGuire. In 2004, Maitland played Brittany Wilson in the Wayans Brothers comedy “White Chicks.” She then studied theatre at NYU and acted on the stage for several years.
Standing 5’9” with bright red hair and sparkling blue eyes, this woman is perfect for porn. Director/star Kayden Kross saw Maitland’s potential and offered her a part in “Drive,” a major release for her own company, Deeper. Maitland found the prospect appealing and a natural next step in her new career direction. The fact that Maitland fit right in with her experienced costars, Ivy Lebelle and Manuel Ferrara, proved that Kayden had scouted a real talent. The movie and Maitland herself went on to snatch trophies at the XBIZ and AVN Awards in 2020, including Best Supporting Actress and Best Three-Way Sex Scene: G/G/B at AVN and Best Actress – Feature Movie and Best Sex Scene – Feature Movie at XBIZ.
Once the switch was flipped and her inner exhibitionist was unleashed, Maitland couldn’t wait to perform again. In her newest and currently most popular flick, “Black and Red” from Blacked, Maitland is a hot real estate agent who enjoys an orgasmic interracial fuck with her client, Jason Luv.
You can also see Maitland in “Raw 38” from Jules Jordan Video/Manuel Ferrara Productions and “Lesbian Superstars” from Lesbian X. In each of these scenes she shows that she can hold her own with some of porn’s biggest stars, from Manuel Ferrara to Lena Paul.
With other movies on the horizon, Maitland Ward is showing us that she’s got what it takes to be a bona fide porn star!
