Emmy Nominee Crystal Hunt Moves from Small to Big Screen

Growing up with a passion for performing and acting, Crystal Hunt began participating in pageants at just two years old. After dabbling in commercials and appearing in the comedy Problem Child 2, Crystal was spotted by a talent agent at the Actor’s Workshop in New York at the age of 17, and was eventually cast as the troubled teenager Lizzie Spaulding on the popular daytime soap opera Guiding Light. She received both an Emmy and a Soap Opera Digest Award nomination for her performance.

During her time on Guiding Light, Crystal found her way from television to motion pictures, appearing in the Derby Stallion with Zac Ephron. After her role on Guiding Light was concluded, Crystal could be seen again in the modern retelling of Snow White, Sydney White, with Amanda Bynes. She has also been featured in a number of commercials, including one for the 25th anniversary for the Walt Disney Company and an anti-drug advertisement with *NSYNC.

In 2009, Crystal returned to television in the ABC show One Life to Live as the bad girl stripper Stacy Morasco, a role she played over the course of three years.

Since leaving One Life to Live, Crystal has been featured in a number of movies and worked with numerous well known actors. In 2014 she appeared in N.Y.C Underground, a thriller about a drug deal gone wrong, and 23 Blast, a family drama about a football star who becomes blind.

In 2015, Crystal starred beside a number of her daytime and primetime contemporaries in the reality show Queens of Drama, in which the women were challenged to produce, develop and pitch a spicy new primetime drama. Most recently, she can also be seen on the big screen in the hit sequel Magic Mike XXL with such talents as Channing Tatum, Jada Pinkett Smith and Matt Bomer.
