(Los Angeles, CA / February 2, 2021) — Maitland Ward was recognized as 2021’s Best Actress at the XCritic Awards, in honor of her exceptional talents as a leading lady in the wildly-popular feature from Vixen Media Group/Deeper, Muse.
The gorgeous flame-haired film star was lauded for her riveting onscreen role as a professor who challenges her students in an eye-popping class assignment. XCritic reviewer Don Juan DeMarko hailed Ward as “the essence of sexuality… as this ageless beauty refines her femininity in her prime and within ours and her glorious world of XXX.”
Of her prestigious win, Ward said, “Thanks so much to the XCritic reviewers who voted for me, and for Muse, which also won two awards for Best Feature and Best Director-Feature to honor Kayden Kross’ mind-blowing creativity.
“It takes a lot of time, patience and collective talent to produce and put together a film like Muse, and I’m so privileged and pleased to work with the very best in the business. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and brought me to this moment.”
Ward is well-known as a pop culture icon, having starred in a string of popular TV shows and films, such as Bold and the Beautiful, Boy Meets World and White Chicks, but it was her sizzling erotic scenes that got a new legion of fans to sit up and take notice of her expertise as a powerhouse performer.
