Former Boy Meets World Actress Turned Adult Film Star Upset at Not Being Asked For Disney Channel Reboot

Maitland Ward is angry. Who? Maitland Ward, the actress who played Rachel McGuire on ABC’s Boy Meets World. The actress apparently wanted to be called back for the Girl Meets World reboot but was not asked to return. She claims she was treated unfairly and doesn’t understand why because the reboot happened before her adult film career began.

That’s right, the red-headed roommate of Cory Mathew’s brother Eric is now doing adult films. However, the Disney Channel reboot took place before her foray into the X-rated, so despite the career shift, that wouldn’t have been why she was left out of the new show, which ran for three seasons ending in 2017. She expressed hurt over the snub saying, “I was the only cast member not to be on the show. And I wasn’t even doing porn at that time. I was just doing my cosplay and getting red carpet pictures.”

She claims Disney snubbed her on purpose but never said exactly why she thinks this. “I think Disney was definitely instrumental in not having me back and I don’t think some of the cast wanted me back either,” she said in an interview with E! News

Her tumultuous relationship with the original show’s cast and crew could have something to do with it. She had rifts with the show’s creator and several cast members during Boy Meets World Filming and says that afterward, “I kind of felt like I was just gone from them — like, we don’t want anything to do with you anymore.” She reportedly has a feud with co-star Danielle Fishel who played Topanga on the show. She recalled a visit to the Girl Meets World set where she claims Fishel was cold to her, alleging, “Danielle didn’t speak to me at all, which I thought was odd. She barely acknowledged that I was even there.” Fishel has not spoken out about the incident.
