“I’m often cast as char­ac­ters that have kind of an edge, and I think what I’m able to bring to them is a vul­ner­a­bil­ity that I hope helps the au­di­ence em­pathize with oth­er­wise dif­fi­cult char­ac­ters,” said Hunt, who grew up in Jensen Beach.

Be­ing on stage isn’t easy for Hunt, who suf­fers from ago­ra­pho­bia, fear of pub­lic spa­ces. It kept her from act­ing in her early 20s.

“My ago­ra­pho­bia is a big ob­sta­cle, but act­ing helps me cope,” she said.

An­i­mals also c alm her nerves. For two years, she’s worked at a doggy day care and board­ing fa­cil­ity. In her spare time, she plays the trum­pet and five-string banjo.
