What Acting Roles Did Maitland Ward Book After Boy Meets World?

Maitland Ward is best known, at least outside of her work in adult entertainment, as Rachel McGuire from "Boy Meets World." The friend of Eric (Will Friedle), Topanga (Danielle Fishel), and Angela (Trina McGee-Davis), Rachel appeared in 45 episodes of the sitcom, starting in the Season 6 premiere episode. Before her three-year run on "Boy Meets World," the actress had a few mainstream acting credits to her name. 

Ward had a very lengthy run on the soap opera "The Bold and the Beautiful," where she appeared in a whopping 129 episodes as Jessica Forrester from 1994-1996. It was her first job ever in the industry, giving her tons of filming experience. She also has a one-off appearance on "Home Improvement" from its seventh season. Her career after "Boy Meets World" saw her land a gig in a cult classic while also appearing in a famous legal drama. But after those, her career took a turn as she moved into the X-rated industry, where she continues to work today.

Ward has a few TV and film credits to her name following her signature role

Maitland Ward's first post-"Boy Meets World" credit is for a direct-to-video comedy entitled "Dish Dogs," starring Sean Astin, Matthew Lillard, and Shannon Elizabeth. The film purportedly follows the misadventures of a pair of dishwashers in a new town, and Ward appears as the character Molly.

Then, Ward booked a gig playing another character named Rachel, Rachel Newman to be precise, on an episode of the 2000s drama "Boston Legal." Two years after her 2002 appearance on the primetime series, Ward appeared as Brittany Wilson in the Wayans brothers' cult classic comedy, "White Chicks." For fans looking to see what Ward was up to in between the two most visible phases of her entertainment career, this is probably the highest profile and most readily available choice.

Following her appearance in "White Chicks," Ward can be seen in the pilot for the sitcom "Out of Practice," starring Paula Marshall, Stockard Channing, Henry Winkler, Jennifer Tilly, and future "Modern Family" star Ty Burrell. Then, in 2007, her final mainstream credit to date is for an episode of the sitcom "Rules of Engagement" starring Patrick Warburton, Megyn Price, and David Spade.

After that, Ward began a different show business career path which you can research elsewhere if you desire. But for fans of "Boy Meets World," these are your chances to see more of Rachel McGuire — or at least the closest thing to it.
