On her Facebook she said one of her early roles was in a commercial for Disneyland, which celebrated the theme park’s 25th anniversary. She appeared in numerous commercials after that and then went on to appear in two of daytime television’s major soap operas, “One Life to Live” and “Guiding Light.” Her work on “Guiding Light” brought her a nomination for a Daytime Emmy Award.

More recently Crystal is back working in films, with a featured role as “Lauren” in “Magic Mike XXL.” This film is the sequel to the 2012 film, “Magic Mike,” directed by Stephen Soderbergh. Both films star Channing Tatum as Mike, a stripper who loves the life on the stage with his stripper pals.

Hunt says the film shoot was very enjoyable, and that working with the female stars (including Andie MacDowell and Elizabeth Banks) was very “empowering.”

Now Crystal has returned to the soap opera world, too, as she takes on a role in a docu-series called “The Queens of Drama.” This soap is also a reality show, with several former soap stars, including Hunt, teaming up to create their own nighttime soap.
