Maitland Ward is one of the most unusual porn stars who have ever starred in adult films. The fact is that she worked for a long time as an ordinary actress, and only then decided that it was time to go into the porn business. This hot babe was born on February 3, 1977 in Long Beach, Los Angeles, California, USA. At birth, the future star was named Ashley Maitland Welkos, but at the beginning of her career, the actress changed it to the current one due to the fact that the name Ashley was too common. She began acting in the soap opera "The Bold and the Beautiful", which has been on television since 1994. She left the show in 1996, having played there in 12 episodes. She got this role back when she graduated from high school. Then, as the actress herself tells, she decided to take a break in her career and left for almost 8 years, and returned to work only in 2015. Since mid-2013, a concerned beauty, trying to attract attention, publishes candid photos on social networks. In July 2019, she signed a contract with the talent agency Society 15 and began acting in adult films. At the beginning of 2021, Maitland Ward starred in a film called "Muse" for Deeper Studio, for which she received XBIZ awards in the nominations "Best Actor — Leading Role" and "Best Sex Scene — Feature Film". In addition, she was awarded other prestigious awards, thanks to which she instantly became one of the most famous actresses in the world.
