Although there are a lot of people who watched One Tree Hill who has pleasant memories of the show, star Chad Michael Murray does not feel the same way about the show. According to the actor, who is now 41 years old, he believes that seeing the show at this point would be “very hard.”
“It’s a piece of my life story that I decided not to share. A lot of maturation, a lot of progress as a person, and [I] just destroyed a large portion of it, “As reported by People, Murray made this statement while participating in a panel discussion at Christmas Con in Edison, New Jersey, on Saturday alongside his former co-star Bethany Joy Lenz. “It sounds like we have hard drives, doesn’t it? I’m probably thinking something along the lines of, you know when you get an iPhone that carries like 264 gigabytes: I’m down on a 32 gig phone because of old information, so I’m loading everything up. Consequently, I believe that I am petrified.”
After starring in the show from the time it first aired in 2003 to the end of its ninth and final season in 2013, Chad Michael Murray made a brief cameo appearance. When it initially aired, he was 22 years old.
Not only professionally, but also personally, the program was a significant event for him. This is especially true considering that it debuted barely six weeks after he appeared alongside Lindsay Lohan in the successful adaptation of Freaky Friday. During the course of the production, Murray became enamored with the actress Sophia Bush. They first started dating in 2003 and got married in April 2005, but they divorced only five months after their wedding. Both parties have tied the knot a second time.
In June 2018, Bush revealed that she had experienced feelings of pressure to wed Murray.
“Everyone is currently 22 years old and foolish. It was not something that I wanted to do in all honesty, but I did it anyway “she stated this when being interviewed by Andy Cohen on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy. “Men have been socialized to believe that they are entitled to occupy more space than women, and it’s time for women to catch up!”
“When you have employers telling you that you’re the only person who gets a person to work on time and 200 people either get to see their kids at night or they don’t because our days start on time,” she explained, “you don’t want to let people down at work.”
In a later podcast called Inside of You, hosted by Michael Rosenbaum, Bush elaborated on his earlier statement, saying, “it’s not a place where I harbor ill will.”
In spite of the fact that Murray has stated that he has removed the “One Tree Hill” chapter from his life, he has stated that reuniting with his former co-stars is almost always a positive experience.
He explained it by saying, “It’s one of those situations where it’s a family.” “We went through a lot of life experiences together, and because of that, when you go into a place like this and I see Joy, Hilary [Burton], or anyone else from across the room, you immediately feel like you’re among family. Because it’s your team, you can cling to each other and have a sense of relative security in the situation.”
Actually, most of the gang got back together for the charity event “A Week in Tree Hill 4” that took place the previous month.
Murray had a great day catching up with his long-lost buddies.
He reflected on the event and remarked, “It was certainly one of the nicest moments I’ve had in a long time.” “Getting everyone together again and seeing everyone’s faces for the first time in a while, and then walking out and experiencing it with you guys, brought back a lot of fond memories.”
