Maddy O'Reilly has a tattoo on her right upper rib that reads "faith." It doesn't take much dogma to have abundant faith in Maddy, both in her talents as a pornstar and in her consummate professionalism! She was born in Mayberry, California, and had a conservative upbringing. Before porn, she dabbled in auto sales and waitressing. The boredom she felt at those jobs led her to join the adult industry. "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," she told Adult DVD Talk in 2013. While her first scenes were shot in Miami, Maddy soon realized that Los Angeles was where she would hit it big. She chose her porn name because she felt she had an Irish look and thus wanted a pseudonym that would reflect that. O'Reilly has also dabbed in directing, first as a collaborative effort with Mimefreak (for Elegant Angel's Maddy O'Reilly Is Slutwoman) and later as a solo effort for Deviant Entertainment (Maddy O'Reilly's Submission). Her wide range of talents has served her well, including a period where she served as the brand rep for Adult Empire's sister site, Popporn.com. And to what does she owe her staying power? "I think it all has to do with where our mindset is before you commit to the business. This is something that I really wanted to do and I really wanted to make a career out of it, so I think how I handled myself professionally attributes to why I've been able to last so long," she said in a YouTube interview with Doron Dogfart.
