Home / From Pageant to Producer: Crystal Hunt’s Career and Achievements

An accomplished actress and producer, Crystal Hunt started performing when she was just 2 years old. She participated in beauty contests and demonstrated acting as her pageant talent. From there, she went on to appear in a variety of commercials. This included an anti-drug ad with *NSYNC and a spot in Disney’s 25th anniversary celebration.

From 2003 to 2006 she played the role of Lizzie Spaulding on the CBS soap opera Guiding Light. This is the role for which she’s best known and it earned her a Daytime Emmy Award nomination in the category of Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series. Hunt briefly returned to soap operas on ABC’s One Life to Live from 2009 to 2010 and again in 2012 for the week of the series finale. She portrayed Stacy Morasco on that show.

After finishing work on One Life to Live, Hunt opened up a high-end pet boutique and grooming center in Clearwater, Florida, her hometown.

She made her first foray into cinema in the 2005 film The Derby Stallion, and has had appearances in Sydney White, NYC Underground and 23 Blast. It wasn’t until 2014 that she stepped into the role of producer on Talbot County, in which her friend Dania Ramirez plays the lead role. She also nabbed a feature role in the 2015 sequel Magic Mike XXL, which she has described as “an empowering role” and “an honor.”

With Talbot County entering post-production and Hunt currently starring in the television series Queens of Drama, it’s clear that Crystal Hunt has established herself in the entertainment industry. Although season one of Queens of Drama wrapped up in 2015, fans will be pleased to know that rumors of Hunt appearing in a second season have been circulating.
