Ward also scored a nomination for Best Star Showcase and Best Foursome/Orgy Sex Scene alongside Isiah Maxwell, April Olsen, Jasmine Wild and Lulu Chu for Mistress Maitland 2, and Best Anal Sex Scene with Manuel Ferrara for Muse: Continuum, Muse Season 1 Director’s Cut.

“I am overjoyed and with the critical and fan response to my work in Muse, Muse 2 and Mistress Maitland 2, and am so honored to be chosen to represent the Deeper brand with these amazing AVN Award nominations,” said Ward, who will be watching the show virtually on Saturday, January 22 via

“When I began this journey nearly three years ago, I didn’t really know where the road was going to take me, but if you love what you do, the work speaks for itself and success will soon follow. Thank you AVN, Kayden Kross, the crew at Deeper and Vixen Media Group, and of course my fans for their ongoing support; I am blessed beyond words.”

Southern California-born and bred Maitland Ward has quickly become one of the biggest stars in adult entertainment, after an-already successful career as an American model, actress and cosplay personality. The star, who joined the cast of Bold and the Beautiful as a teen and found fame as Rachel McGuire on the beloved ABC sitcom Boy Meets World, jumped headfirst into shooting adult films in 2019 without much persuasion.

The statuesque (5’10”) all-natural redhead is unique in that not only is she beautiful and built for the adult biz, Ward’s talent as an actress means she can also carry dramatic and comedic scenes with ease. Her playful energy, professionalism and open sexuality earned her an exclusive performance contract with worldwide brand Vixen Media Group; in 2020, Ward won three AVN Awards for Best Supporting Actress and Best Three-Way Sex Scene-G/G/B for her work in Deeper mega-hit feature Drive, as well as Favorite Camming Cosplayer.

Ward was the unanimous all-around best actress award winner in 2021, taking home multiple awards for Deeper’s Muse. Ward also took home the AVN Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene for Higher Power. Ward has won multiple XBIZ awards, which include Best Actress for Drive, Best Sex Scene for Drive, Best Actress for Muse, Best Feature Sex Scene for Muse and was awarded the 2020 Crossover Star of The Year.
