Prepping for Queens of Drama Season Two
Queens of Drama is a reality series where viewers watch six former soap actresses create, act in and pitch a dramatic television pilot. The cast includes former Knott’s Landing star Donna Mills, One Life to Live’s Crystal Hunt, Vanessa Marcil from General Hospital, Passions star Chrystee Pharris, All My Children’s Lindsay Hartley, and Hunter Tylo of the daytime soap, The Bold and The Beautiful. The group of women come together to write, direct, act in, and produce a dramatic television show, then pitch it to top TV executives.
Episodes aired in 2015 include; I Don’t Do Ugly, Art Imitating Life, Those Little Devils, Dealing With A Sociopath and others. The girls start things off by asking Donna Mills to lead their group, and she accepts only to find later that they resent the way she manages things. Later Mills discovers that the girls think she’s overstepped her bounds by trying to pitch the program to network executives behind their backs, and crash the meeting.
The idea for the reality show came from actress Crystal Hunt, who was previously on the soap One Life to Live. On the show Hunt played sizzling character Stacey Morasco – a stripper who followed her sister Gigi to Llandview from Las Vegas. Stripper Morasco then meets and falls in love with hot character Rex Balsom and starts an intimate relationship with him. The girl is also sleeping with Oliver Fisher and becomes pregnant by him, but pretends that the preferred Rex Balsom, is the baby’s father. Before her plan to secure Balsom prospers, Morasco miscarries the child and falls through an ice covered Llantano Lake.
Hunt had an early interest in photography, and started performing in front of audiences at the age of 2 as a participant in beauty pageants. When she got a little older, she landed her first acting job in the movie Problem Child 2. The young actress portfolio grew with roles in major motion pictures such as The Derby Stallion where she played opposite Zac Efron as his girlfriend. Hunt also secured a role in the movie Sydney White as a side-kick of Amanda Bynes. Other roles the actress portrayed that include her character Lizzie Spaulding on daytime soap Guiding Light. In the later part of 2015, she played the part of Lauren in Magic Mike XXL.
Hunt also works to raise funds for an animal shelter, and is a spokesman for abandoned and neglected animals. In fact, her work with animals has seen Crystal Hunt gain many Facebook followers.
