The daughter of theatrical director Gordon Hunt (who is also her acting coach), Hunt has been working since she was 9. She landed roles in a variety of TV films, including "Pioneer Woman," "Quarterback Princess," "The Miracle of Kathy Miller," "Bill: On His Own" and "Choices of the Heart."
Roles in several TV series, including "Swiss Family Robinson" and "It Takes Two," plus a recurring role as Dr. Jack Morrison's (David Morse) girlfriend on "St. Elsewhere," made it possible for Hunt to buy a house in Studio City, which she shares with a girlfriend.
Once she was cast in "Girls" and had gotten past the shock of being a blond, Hunt said she was allowed to "get real creative with who Lynne was."
To create the bizarre fashions her character bops around in, Hunt said she first "went out and bought all these European magazines--then I did everything that wasn't in them."
