Maitland Ward transitioned from being an adult film star to a sitcom star.
The actress portrayed Rachel McGuire in the final two seasons of ABC's "Boy Meets World" from 1998 to 2000.
Ward entered the adult film industry after her tenure on the show.
In a memoir titled "Rated X: How Porn Liberated Me from Hollywood," which was released on Sept. 6, she described her unexpected professional trajectory.
The native Californian recalled having an acting career in her dreams as a young girl.
From 1994 to 1996, she played Jessica Forrester on "The Bold and the Beautiful."
After leaving the soap opera, she found herself on the set of Michael Jacobs' wholesome coming-of-age comedy "Boy Meets World."
As the new girl, Ward joined a small but tight-knit cast.
Ward, 45, told Fox News Digital, "I believe it's an uplifting narrative for women and actually everyone."
