Not every young actress has the soap opera accolades, Hollywood credentials, and professional performance resume of Crystal Clarese Hunt. From sunny Clearwater, Florida came a little girl who grew into a star on the rise with an amazing early career boost as a pageant contestant when she was only two years old.
Crystal Hunt would then escalate with performing ambitions by putting her attractive appearance and acting ability to use in television advertisements. Among the marvelous entries on Hunt’s TV commercial list is spot with Justin Timberlake and his famous band NSYNC in an anti-drug commercial. Crystal was also able to shine brightly in a 25th anniversary ad for the Walt Disney Company.
This golden blonde gem showed audiences and the entertainment industry that no matter the size of the screen, from home television programs to feature length cinema attractions, she was here to stay. Her dive into daytime soap operas became a premium platform for her acting chops to break through to the next level. On the legendary series “Guiding Light,” Crystal Hunt honed her cultivated craft as Elizabeth Lillian Spaulding between 2003-2005 for 23 episodes.
It was during her final year on “Guiding Light” that Crystal proved her worth to the entertainment business by earning two huge award nominations for her television performance. The first came from the Soap Opera Digest Award and the other was from the widely respected Daytime Emmy Awards.
Hunt extended the value of her performance portfolio by appearing as Stacy Marasco on 152 episodes of the soap opera classic “One life to Live.” From the small screen to the tall screen, there was also Hunt’s foundation formed in motion pictures. Take a look at the 2007 romantic comedy “Sydney White and the family sports drama “23 Blast” and watch her natural beauty morph into those roles.
Well-known celebrities have worked with Crystal in the past. The name Zac Efron should certainly ring a bell. They were co-stars of the 2005 drama “The Derby Stallion.” Another previous cast member of Hunt’s is the A-List talent Channing Tatum who shared the screen with her in the provocative comedy drama “Magic Mike XXL.” This is truly a fantastic start to a career that is just getting started.
