Kevin Cody Hunt '16

Kevin Cody Hunt

Kevin Cody Hunt ’16 has a unique double major in mathematics and theatre arts, which he explains logically as “fulfilling me on both sides, the left brain and the right brain.” Here he answers both deep and not-so-deep questions about himself … and reveals his inner performer.

What would be your ideal job?

I’d like to act in every medium and genre possible: stage, television, film, experimental stuff, etc.

What about you would surprise people the most?

I’ve never seen Lord of the Rings. Everyone who knows me equates me with fantasy and superheroes and stuff like that, but I’ve never had the chance to watch those movies.

What trait do you most like about yourself?

My ambition and my ability to listen.

What trait do you least like about yourself?

My tendency to set standards too high for myself.

When and where were you happiest?

The American College Theater Festival at West Chester University in January 2014. I was in a completely different environment where I was surrounded by a bunch of performers and finally felt, concretely, like I knew what I wanted to do with my life. It was where I really started to get my confidence as a performer, and I feel like it was the first chapter in the current stage of life that I’m in.

What do you regard as the lowest depths of misery?

An inability to reach out for help because you assume that anyone who does take your hand isn’t going to do so with genuine intent (which is totally delusional, but I guess that’s why it’s so miserable).

In the movie of your life, who would star as you?

Dane DeHaan.

Which talent would you most like to have?

I wouldn’t complain if I were a better dancer. Being more coordinated sounds like fun.

What’s your favorite meal and why?

Chicken Parmigianino. I only get the chance to have it once in a while, and it reminds me of my family.

Who is your favorite fictional character?

This is literally the hardest question on here for me to answer. Either Iago from Othello or Luffy from this cartoon called One Piece that I was obsessed with as a kid.
