Larger than life characters shuck their iconic soap opera shells to reveal real-world personalities in Pop’s, “Queens of Drama.”
Six iconic actresses band together in an attempt to save a dying field of dramatic television, but working as a group often creates opportunities for hurt feelings and misunderstandings. As they strive to produce their own television show, the actresses find outlets for their creativity, none more so than discerning soap opera star, Crystal Hunt.
Hunt, who is synonymous with vivacious, robust characters that line her SoapOperaNetwork work history, doesn’t miss her chance to showcase an outgoing, determined personality throughout this rousing docu-series. Sticking up for herself and others, she utilizes all her considerable life-skills to further the actresses’ goal of successfully pitching their new series by the end of the season. As the owner of My Pets Dream Boutique in Florida, Hunt not only pampered pets but gained business experience that might help guide her decision making during “Queens of Drama.”
There are fights, harsh words, reconciliations, and, beyond that, the sincere drive of six dedicated women. Despite differences of temperament, Facebook fans feel Hunt uses her knowledge of acting to push forward with her fellow dramatists to rescript the world of soap opera.
As a young actress, Hunt’s fame was sparked by her work on “Guiding Light” as the troubled, yet tough ‘Lizzie Spaulding.’ Her character faced many trials and Hunt held nothing back with her performance; as a result, she received a Daytime Emmy Award nomination.
She has appeared on the big screen alongside Hollywood eye candy such as Zac Effron in “The Derby Stallion” and alongside Channing Tatum in “Magic Mike XXL.” She also portrayed characters for television and movies in projects like “NYC Underground,” “23 Blast,” “Sydney White,” and “One Life to Live.”
With abundant experience and personalities all around, the ladies in “Queens of Drama” are on a mission to prove that drama isn’t dead; it just needs to be redefined. This interview with Crystal Hunt and the ladies sheds more light on their real relationships.
