'Boy Meets World' star goes from family friendly to full frontal in new porn film

Raluca Ioana Cohn(NEW YORK) -- (NOTE CONTENT) One former Boy Meets World star hung up the family friendly image and bared it all in her first porn film -- which came out last Friday

In Touch Weekly reports that Maitland Ward, who played Eric Matthews' redheaded roommate Rachel McGuire, made her official XXX debut in the adult film Drive.   

So, why did she decide to pivot from wholesome family shows to the adult film industry?  Turns out that it's something she's wanted to do for a long time.

"It started slowly," she explained, "It all started when I started doing cosplay, which I really genuinely love doing and people started giving me attention for it."  She added that she always loved "dressing sexy in public" and that she's "an exhibitionist."

As for why she decided to cut her teeth on the porn industry with Drive, she says it's because the movie is "really, really well-written."  

The 42-year-old actress explained that her character starts off innocent before having an intense sexual awakening.  She didn't go into details, but added that doing porn was a new kind of challenge.

"I really got to set myself free with this and really express myself in a way that I haven’t done before," she said.

Those interested in watching the film can catch it on
