“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 a lm 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.
