In the heyday of the afternoon soaps one of the most popular was One Life to Live. The characters were well developed, the story lines, while at time outlandish, were relatable and enjoyable for it’s fans. One Life to Live enjoyed a long fun of over forty years of wild affairs, love crossed storylines and drama. The soap premiered in 1968 and concluded January 13, 2012.
One Life to Live was centered around the Woleks and the Rileys and featured an eclectic blend of working class and privileged residents of the sleepy town of scenic Llanview, Pennsylvania. Heady topics such as split personality, time travel, espionage and drug addiction kept viewers turning in where they formed favorites form the long cast list that included several long standing actors.
Landing a role of some of the most popular soaps while at the height of their run was a lucky break. Many of the soaps created the stars we enjoy watching today. The character of Stacey Morasco on One Life to Live was played by Crystal Hunt. She began her career when she was just two years old by participating in pageants. She won roles in a number of commercials, including a role in a Walt Disney ad with the band NSYNC, who was popular at the time. In 2005 she starred in a film called The Derby Stallion, and also played in a Universal Pictures film called Sydney White as Demetria “Dinky” Rosemead Hodgekiss. After joining One Life to Live as a regular in 2009, she remained with the soap until 2010 and then returned for brief visits as a ghost in 2010 and 2012, highlights of which can be seen on her Vimeo account.
Hunt has continued to act as well as produce and had roles in Magic Mike XXL and Queens of Drama and serves as executive producer of Talbot County.
