Crystal Hunt: A Career on Both Sides of the Camera

Crystal Hunt is best known for her emmy-nominated role as Lizzie Spaulding in the daytime drama Guiding Light which she started at the age of seventeen. However, since her four-year stint on that show, Crystal’s career has blossomed both in front of and behind the camera. Crystal ventured into feature film with the heart-warming family drama The Derby Stallion, in which she starred opposite Zac Efron, followed by co-starring with Amanda Bynes in the rom-com Sydney White.

In 2009, Crystal returned to daytime TV with the role of the conniving Stacy Morasco on the ABC series One Life to Live where she would stay for three years before again returning to the big screen. In 2013 she starred in the Lionsgate thriller NYC Underground followed by a role in the inspirational film 23 Blast where she worked alongside first time director Dylan Baker.

In 2015, Crystal joined her fellow stars of daytime and primetime drama working both in front of and behind the camera in the projectQueens of Drama where Crystal and her fellow soap opera powerhouses strove to develop, pitch, and produce an original primetime drama. Even though managing this task alone was challenging, Crystal also found time to perform in the hit feature film Magic Mike XXL alongside Channing Tatum and Joe Maginello.

Most recently, Crystal Hunt has stepped into the role of producer with the true-story inspired horror film Talbot County.  Follow her on Facebook @OfficialCrystalHunt, and be sure to take a look at her photography work.
