Crystal’s first television role was playing the part of Lizzie Spaulding on the daytime soap “Guiding Light” in 2003. In this role, Lizzie is a pampered and rebellious little rich girl that believes her family is too critical of her. Crystal is very believable in her emotional performance, as this type of person would react. The year 2005 awarded Crystal Hunt with both a Daytime Emmy nomination and a Soap Opera Digest nomination, both for performances in “Guiding Light”. Crystal left the show, and her role as Lizzie in 2006.

Going forward, Crystal is expected to have a long and productive career, based on talent and hard work, combined with a desire to continue acting and using talents behind the scenes as well.
