LOS ANGELES — Maitland Ward has signed with Kendra Lust’s Society 15 for talent management.
Ward is a notable cosplay star and social media personality who first made her name as a mainstream television actress. As a teenager, she spent two years in daytime television on “The Bold and the Beautiful” and migrated to prime time with a recurring role on “Boy Meets World” from 1998-2000.
She appeared in episodes of “Home Improvement,” “Boston Public” and “Rules of Engagement,” among other television shows, and had a role in the film “White Chicks.” She retired from mainstream acting roughly a decade ago.
In recent years, she has marshaled a sizable social media following, and mainstream attention, for her topless photos and risqué cosplay shoots.
“Maitland chose Society 15 with a specific purpose — to make herself a household name to a brand-new demographic of adoring fans,” a rep said. Scenes for Blacked, Brazzers and VR Bangers are already banked.
“I’ve been very fortunate to have so many great chapters in the entertainment business. 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,” she said. “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 will be in for a wild ride.”
Society 15’s Randy Quintana praised the agency’s new leading lady. “It’s not every day that a mainstream actress makes the move to the adult industry,” he said. “Maitland has been building her adult brand for some time now, and we at Society 15 are excited to help her achieve continued success.”
