Maddy O’Reilly’s Biography
From Car Salesperson to XXX Starlet
Maddy O’Reilly grew up as a typical shy, good girl in a small conservative town in North Carolina. As a young girl she took dance lessons and steered clear of trouble. After high school but before she began her career in the adult industry, O’Reilly worked as a car salesperson at CarMax and a waitress at Chili’s restaurant. One evening while watching porn, she saw an ad for models, followed the link and filled out the application. She had no idea how this impulsive choice would change her life forever.
O’Reilly was contacted 3 days later to shoot her first 3 scenes. Her adult film career began in 2011 when she first performed for Mofos in Miami at the age of 21. She has parlayed that first appearance into quite a spectacular career in a short amount of time. Since her debut, she has worked for top companies such as Hustler, Mile High, Evil Angel, Jules Jordan Video, Elegant Angel, and Girl Candy Films.
During an interview with Adult DVD Talk, O’Reilly was asked about how she got into the adult industry, she said, “I was kind of bored with my life at the time. I wanted to be able to do these crazy, sexual things. There’s so many reasons. I knew I wanted to explore myself sexually and I knew because of the type of area I was living in, that there would be certain fantasies I would never be able to fulfill. So I figured porn would be the best outlet for me to go crazy.” Speaking of going crazy, this vivacious redhead told AVN that she prefers rough and aggressive scenes, which are on full display with the S&M tinged “Power & Control” from Digital Sin. “I love the exploration of my body and others' and discovering the many ways people orgasm,” she said. “And most of all I love porn because I can express my sexuality more openly and be around likeminded people.”
