Many fans will remember Maitland Ward for her role as series regular Katie McGuire on Boy Meets World from 1998 to 2000. Others may recall her work on the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful or movies like White Chicks or a guest shot on Home Improvement. Blessed with appealing girl-next-door looks and a smashing figure, Ward gained a new legion of fans when she began posting provocative pics of herself on her official social media accounts. She announced her long-rumored shift to porn in July 2019.
"I've been very fortunate to have so many great chapters in the entertainment business," Ward told AVN when she signed with the Society 15 agency earlier this year. "Being a cosplayer and social media star the last several years has allowed me to experiment with my look and reach a whole new audience of fans. I find it very exciting, and it's something I've been thinking about for quite some time. My fans have been asking for it, I've been wanting to do it, and now is the perfect time. I can't wait to see where this road will take me, and I promise everyone they will be in for a wild ride."
Drive became Ward's first mega-bestseller when it was released in fall 2019. She later signed an exclusive contract with Deeper, Kayden Kross's imprint.
