Former Disney actress turned porn star Maitland Ward has revealed a move into the adult entertainment business “renewed” her acting career.
The 44-year-old American actress is celebrating having just landed a role in a new sitcom The Big Time.
She will play a world-famous porn star, mirroring her real life, who teams up with a nerdy writer to reinvigorate a failing production studio.
And without her shock move into porn, Maitland is convinced she might not have got another acting break.
"I’ve been renewed!” she beamed. “I really never had harsh judgement come down on me that I was warned about and that a lot of people expected.
"In fact, my career has been really celebrated, even by groups of people I never would’ve thought.
In an interview with The Sun, she added: "Young women have been the most supportive and vocal. They tell me how empowering it is for them to watch me take my life and my sexuality into my own hands and not be ashamed by it."
Fiery red-haired Maitland has scooped an impressive 11 porn awards since moving into the industry in 2019.
She won Best Actress for her erotic role in the film Muse at this year’s AVN’s, the porn world’s Oscars.
And the buxom bombshell has had few problems acquiring admirers, with a whopping 1.5million Instagram followers tuned into her every move.
Maitland recently shared a boastful snap of herself say on a table with a string of her awards proudly laid out in front of her.
She joked: “My babies are all home!”
And the stunning star is no stranger to posting provocative snaps of herself on her social media.
