Hunt: (on his reluctance to give interviews) My personal life is personal. I know nothing more about the plot of this show [Guiding Light] than anyone else. And, my recipes are secret.
Hunt: (about working on "Guiding Light") There are a lot of talented people here who work their tails off every day trying to make something compelling, entertaining. Of course, it always has to be done by yesterday, so usually, we're one ring short of a circus (without the jokes). Still, I take a lot of pride in working hard.
Hunt: Like any crowd, we at the "Guiding Light Feeling Factory" are a bunch of artists, artisans, lunatics, blowhards, whores, dancers, capitalists, posers, angels, deviants, paranoid-schizophrenics, schemers, clowns, heroes, princesses, self-obsessed pigs, parents, children, punks, slags, etc.
