Daytime Actress Crystal Hunt Lands Role in Magic Mike XXL

Crystal Hunt started her acting career in daytime television. Now she’s found her way to the big screen, landing a role in Magic Mike XXL. Hunt will play the character of Lauren in what’s expected to be one of the summer’s most popular movies. She’ll be part of an eccentric cast including actresses Jada Pinkett Smith, Andie MacDowell, and Elizabeth Banks.

Magic Mike XXL is the continuation of Steven Soderbergh’s 2012 Magic Mike. In this exciting sequel, Channing Tatum plays Mike Lane, who ends his retirement from stripping to reunite with his dance crew.

According to her Facebook, Hunt started her career at the age of two, when she began participating in pageants. Later she starred in various commercials, including an anti-drug advertisement with *NSYNC. She is best known for her role as Lizzie Spaulding on the CBS soap opera Guiding Light, which she played from 2003 to 2006.

More recently, she can be seen in a docu-series called Queens of Drama, where she works alongside other daytime actresses including Lindsay Hartley and Vanessa Marcil. Hunt claims the cast of Queens of Drama to be similar to the strong women portrayed in Magic Mike XXL.

On the topic of Queens of Drama, Hunt says, “We’ve discovered a way to use our extensive experience in the ‘soap opera world’ to create a script that’s truly unique and original.”  Check out Crystal’s official website, for more on this up and coming actress.
