Blunt anchors Fanlala's E-news show "The Feed," and stars in her own fashion & style show, Daphne's Look of the Week.

Television and film[edit]

Blunt made her first television appearance at the age of 10 on the CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless.[13] She starred as Emma in the new Nickelodeon's Pilot episode of The Thundermans. Blunt is known for starring as Kayla in the Radio Disney series My Dream, which is described by The Hollywood Reporter as "a contemporary story on a format reminiscent of the 1940s, before TV was pervasive."[14] However, unlike Depression-era radio series, that typically featured episodes lasting 30 minutes, episodes of Disney's My Dream last just 90 seconds each, described as "bite-size chunks" by Disney executives.[15] Blunt then went on to become a series regular in the Nickelodeon Pilot "Dunes Club" in 2015. Blunt is also currently set to guest star in the upcoming ABC sitcom Uncle Buck.

Musical career[edit]

During the first season of the series My Dream, Blunt released her first single for Radio Disney, Hello World, on Radio Disney, and published a video for it on YouTube on March 21, 2011.[16]
