You ever kind of have a crush on an actress on a tv show, maybe a really sexy, tall redhead on a show full of gorgeous actors, and then later in life she starts doing porn and it’s better than you could have imagined? Okay, that basically only describes Maitland Ward, but she’s one of a kind. I know what you’re thinking; what about Jaimee Foxworth? I didn’t forget her, but she was like 10 when she was on Family Matters, Maitland Ward was 21 when she started appearing on Boy Meets World.

Maitland Ward is about to do something no one else has really done and appear on mainstream television and in porn at the same time. The main reason this isn’t a more regular occurrence is that porn stars are not exactly known for their acting ability.

The New York Post reports Ward is going to produce and star in a TV sitcom where she plays a porn star.

“I want to slay both industries,” Ward told The Post. “I love and embrace both. Me being bold and free in my sexuality and so out there with it has really given me that power. When I was like this innocent flower, I was letting everyone else dictate what I should do or what I should be.”

While some may stick their noses up at her day job, the redheaded bombshell says it unleashed passion within herself — not just passion for the cameras.

“When people always say, ‘Oh porn’s going to ruin you. You’ll never be seen by mainstream again. Nobody will ever want to hire you and porn will ruin it,’ ” she said, “it’s given me my acting career back. It really has.”

Maitland Ward has spoken in the past about limited her options were after Boy Meets World. Basically, the best she could hope for was a really popular Hallmark Movies and Mysteries TV movie series.

The line between porn and TV has been blurring for a while. Are you going to tell me that porn would have detrimental to the career of anyone on Game of Thrones when that show was still good? A sitcom about porn is probably prestige TV these days.
