Maitland Ward Biography

Maitland Ward (born Ashley Ward, on February 3, 1977 in Long Beach, California) is most commonly known as Rachel McGuire from the hit primetime series, Boy Meets World. She most recently starred as Jessica Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful, where she appeared for three years. She landed that role, which was only her second major audition, when she was 17 and still a junior in high school.

Maitland has had guest-starring roles on USA High and ABC's Home Improvement; and co-starred with Jay Thomas and Mario Lopez in the dramatic movie, Killing Mr. Griffin.
