Born in Clearwater, Florida, former pageant goer Crystal Hunt became an actress after landing her first major acting role as Lizzie Spaulding, a troubled teen on the CBS daytime soap opera Guiding Light where she played the character for three years. In 2005, she earned a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series for the role. In the same year, Hunt earned a Soap Opera Digest Award nomination for her portrayal of the character.
Breaking out from her TV career debut, Hunt landed a role opposite Zac Efron in The Derby Stallion, a heartfelt family film about horses. After finishing her time on Guiding Light, she also co-starred with Amanda Bynes in the modern day fairy tale spin-off of Snow White titled Sydney White. Returning back to her television soap opera roots in 2009, Crystal Hunt appeared on the ABC daytime show One Life to Live where she played bad girl, Stacy Morasco.
In her more recent years, Hunt acted in Dylan Baker’s directorial debut 23 Blast, an inspirational story about a high school football player stricken with total blindness. Crystal also appeared in Magic Mike XXL, the sequel to the popular male stripping movie Magic Mike with Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, and Joe Manganiello.
Alongside her acting career, as announced on her Facebook, Hunt helped produced her first feature film, Talbot County, with her best friend, Dania Ramirez. The movie is an Alfred Hitchcockian horror film inspired by a true story and based on a hundred year old fable.
