If you ever wondered what happened to One Life to Live’s Stacey Morasco the answer is simple – real life personality Stacey Hunt has taken on the task of creating and pitching a made for TV drama, and the footage of all this was captured and turned into a reality TV show. Sound like a lot? The girl makes it look simple. Come on…the soap opera princess takes on the world of reality television. That’s entertainment!
Crystal and five other actresses of soap shows are live on location filming the steps to make their drama series creation turn from pitch to picked up. Dark haired lovely Lindsay Hartley – you may remember her as Theresa from the show Passions is one. West Coast cutie Vanessa Marcil – played as Brenda Barrett on General Hospital is also on. African American heart throb Chrystee Pharris – Simone Russell on the Passions soap and girlfriend of Zach Braff aka Dr. Dorian on Scrubs is another. Sizzling hot Hunter Tylo – also known as Dr. Taylor Hayes from the show The Bold & The Beautiful has still got it. Donna Mills – most of us know this ageless beauty from the night time drama Knott’s Landing,is in full effect.
It’s exciting to see the camera crew set up their tripods, crew using the cameras, action charts, light blocking screens and professional equipment being used. You actually get to see the girls during the writing process and even see them read the lines during rehearsals. Watching the wardrobe their stylists selects and seeing how the whole team works together makes you feel like you’re actually there on the set with them.
Seeing these former soap characters that we tune in to during prime time TV hours, keeps you on the edge of your seat. We used to sit with baited breath waiting for the next scene and now get to see these ladies work together in real life. It’s phenomenal.
Although acting is her first love, Crystal Hunt decided to expand her repertoire and add producing to it. For Queens of Drama to be her first reality show, she’s doing a terrific job.
As this interview captures, Crystal’s acting career goes beyond One Life to Live, she’s even played on Guiding Light, and with Zac Efron in the movie The Derby Stallion. For someone as young and gifted as she is, Crystal sharing talent with us is wonderful. Make sure to follow her on Instagram to keep up with her career as she goes along.
