Some stars start early. Crystal Hunt is one of them. Born in Clearwater, Florida on February 2, 1985, she began her career at the young age of 2 years old. At this time, she began participating in pageants where her talent was acting. She appeared in many commercials as a child and teenager, among them, a promotion for the Walt Disney Company’s 25th Anniversary Celebration and an anti-drug campaign with *NSYNC.
Her first movie role was in the 1991 film Problem Child 2. In 2003 at the age of 17, an agent discovered her at the Actors Workshop in New York and recommended she audition for the role of troubled teen Lizzie Spaulding on the soap opera Guiding Light. After the directors viewed several auditions from multiple actresses, they determined that Crystal was the best fit for the role. She was originally cast on recurring status because of her age, but was moved to contract status in 2004. The role lasted for 4 years, and, in 2005, won her a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series.
After she left Guiding Light in 2006, Crystal went on to star alongside Amanda Bynes in the romantic comedy Sydney White in 2007, piggybacking off her success in the series and a movie appearance in the Derby Stallion opposite Zac Efron in 2005.
In February 2009, she returned to her television roots when she was cast as the stripper Stacy Morasco in the daytime soap One Life to Live, where she stayed for 3 years.
Currently, Crystal Hunt can be seen as a member of the main cast in the reality show Queens of Drama and opposite Channing Tatum in Magic Mike XXL. Additionally, she was an executive producer for the 2015 film Talbot County.
