From the age of 15, Crystal Hunt entered beauty pageants and said her talent was acting. She landed a variety of commercials, including one for the Walt Disney Company’s 25th anniversary, as well as an anti-drug public service announcement with NSYNC.
Her nickname is Princess and she is a mix of Australian, Irish and Yugoslavian heritage. She attended Palm Harbor University High School and graduated in 2003.
But it is her work on soap operas that she is the most well known. Crystal Hunt spent about three years from 2003 to 2006 on “Guiding Light,” in which she earned a nomination for a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger actress in a drama series. She said, “I grew up there. I got there when I was 17 and left when I was almost 21. I spent a lot of my teen years there, where you change from a teenager to an adult. It happened with them. That was the hardest to leave, because I truly and genuinely loved them all very much.”

Her special skills include singing, dance (tap & jazz), horseback riding, jet skiing and helicopter piloting.
Aside from acting, Crystal Hunt owns a high-end pet boutique in her hometown of Clearwater, Florida, called My Pets Dream Boutique.
She is involved with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. She said in 2010, “My mother survived breast cancer last year. It is incredible to be there walking next to my mother…there are a ton of “In Memory of” signs…as you’re walking, you’re trying to hold back tears as you read people’s backs.”
Her favorite TV shows are “I Love Lucy” and “The Golden Girls.” A few tidbits: Crystal Hunt loves to bake; she missed her high school Prom because she was busy working; she loves Starbucks, and if she couldn’t be an actor, she would be a cosmetic surgeon.
