"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."

Former Disney actor Maitland Ward has revealed she got into porn ‘by accident’.

The 42-year-old, who used to star in Boy Meets World, said it all started out with her sharing a few saucy snaps on social media – to the disapproval of her publicist.

Speaking to The Daily Beast, she said: “It was cool because on social media I could be my authentic self, and sometimes, in acting, they put you up to be who they want you to be. So I could finally have fun, and be crazy, and be sexy, and be out there – to an extent.

“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.’ He thought he was giving me good advice but it just wasn’t my thing.

Evidently not keen to take her publicist’s advice, she instead chose to abide by the requests of countless Instagram followers who begged for nudes by setting up a premium Snapchat account. From there she set up a Patreon and within a day she had amassed 2,500 paying subscribers.

She said: “For 2018, I was the number one adult-content creator for Patreon. And it put the power back in my hands.”

Her way to porn stardom

She also started raking in the dollars on OnlyFans, where she says she makes five figures a month. But even though she was making plenty, Ward wanted to explore her ‘more sexual side’ and began doing girl-girl sex scenes on Snapchat, before becoming a fully fledged porn star.

And it seems Ward is happy with her career move, as she’s making more cash and her husband is on board with it too.

She said: “When people say ‘she had to turn to porn’ I laugh, because this is a good thing and I’m making more now.

“My husband has been supportive of me, because this is something that’s in me, that I need to do, and that I like to do, and it’s just another kind of performance.”
