During an earlier stint on “Guiding Light”, Hunt had established herself as a fan favorite before embarking on the role of Stacy Morasco for just over one year. The short stay on the New York produced soap was so memorable that Hunt was asked to return for appearances in the final episodes of the soap before its cancellation.
