The world of soap operas is always changing as the characters and storylines evolve to allow increasing numbers of characters and plots designed to show off the many different aspects of life in the U.S. However, when “One Life To Live” debuted in 1968 the landscape of the U.S. soap industry was extremely different and consisted largely of plots developed around characters living lives most people could only wish to achieve. The aspirational nature of life in soap operas still continued in the early days of “One Life To Live” with the inclusion of affluent families in the soap opera; the range of characters shown in “One Life To live” changed the way soap operas and TV drama was produced when everyday characters were included in the suburb of Llanview.
The range of characters shown can be seen in the life of a single character, Stacy Morasco, who was played by the actress Crystal Hunt. Morasco began life as an erotic dancer in Las Vegas who was plotting to embark on a campaign to undermine the life of her sister in Llanview. The character of Morasco allowed Crystal Hunt to express a different side of her personality through her performance, which became a favorite amongst fans of the soap.
Crystal Hunt has been a major part of the TV and movie acting landscape for a number of years, and has built up huge Instagram and Facebook followings as such, which has seen her transcend the soap opera industry, TV drama and movies. The actress has embarked on a varied career that has recently seen her step out of the world of soap opera and enter the movie industry with a role in “Magic Mike XXL”. Hunt has also looked to develop different aspects of her career within the TV and movie production industry that has seen her become an executive producer on the movie “Talbot County”.
After “One Life To Live” debuted the range of characters and stories developed by new and existing TV drama productions followed suit to show the lives of real people. Many different aspects of life are now shown in U.S. TV drama, including the plots revolving around the lives of those who are looking to develop the popular TV dramas that have become known as the current golden age of television.
