It was a night of triumph and celebration at Thursday night’s 2023 XRCO Awards Show as adult film megastar Maitland Ward earned her third successive ‘Best Actress’ trophy in honor of her epic showcase performance in Deeper’s dramatic feature, Drift.
A historic first-time feat in the category since the show’s 1985 debut, the Deeper contract star, who also took home the esteemed award in 2021 and 2022 for Muse and Muse Season 2, respectively, now officially holds the honor as the only performer to win ‘Best Actress’ three times in a row.
Upon Drift’s completion last year, Ward proudly told fans that she and the film’s director Kayden Kross “went way outside the box this time to create a five-part feature spectacle like no other” that examines the public persona – and private affairs – of a popular rom-com actress.
“A big THANK YOU to the X-Rated Critics Organization’s editors and reviewers for selecting me as XRCO’s ‘Best Actress’ for a third straight year,” said Ward. “However, an actor’s talent shines brightest when nurtured by exceptional writing, direction and behind-the-scenes expertise, so I want to also thank Kayden Kross and the amazing crew at Deeper for their incredible collaborative artistry and support.”
Ward, who signed on as the famous face of Deeper and Vixen Media Group (VMG) contract star in 2019, recently announced a two-year extension on her exclusive deal into 2025, featuring a variety of upcoming projects that the star will also write and direct.
