Crystal Hunt’s career started modestly when she participated in pageants at the tender age of 2. Her joy of performing led her to acting and singing lessons that served her and her audiences well for years since.
Crystal first became known to daytime television fans for roles on two of the most popular daytime soap operas: Guiding Light and One Life to Live. At only 17, she joined the cast of Guiding Light and assumed the challenging role of Lizzie Spaulding. Her enigmatic performance resulted in nominations for both a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress as well as a Soap Opera Digest Award in 2005. In 2009, she wowed audiences again with her acting range and abilities when she originated the role of Stacey Morasco on One Life to Live, a part she continued to play until 2010.
Along with her television work, Crystal has showcased her talent on the big screen. In 2005, Crystal appeared in the family friendly film The Derby Stallion as Jill Overton opposite Zac Efron and Bill Cobbs. Eight years later, she appeared as Molly in the slice-of-life film 23 Blast, the winner of the 2013 Heartland Film Festival’s Audience Choice Award for Narrative Feature.
2015 marked Crystal’s return to television in the prime time reality show Queens of Drama on the POP network. She co-starred with Soap Opera superstars Hunter Tylo and Vanessa Marcil.
Crystal expanded her portfolio as executive producer with the highly anticipated film Talbot County (currently in post-production). The Hitchcockian film, set in 1986 Georgia, stars Vanessa Angel and Gail O’Grady.
