Chad michael murray sophia bush is dating james lafferty dating a victoria39s secret model
The show title comes from the U2 song "One Tree Hill" from the Joshua Tree album. One Tree Hill was originally set in Illinois, but The WB asked Schwahn to set it in a warmer climate, which is how the show ended up taking place in North Carolina.5.
Schwahn wanted Chad Michael Murray to play Nathan, but Murray wanted to play Lucas, so the producers agreed to cast him in that role.6.
The USO show was a real concert for real USO troops, some of whom were leaving for Iraq the night of filming.45.
In Season 8, Episode 11, there is a terrible thunderstorm in Tree Hill in which Brooke and Jamie get stuck in a car in the river and the dam breaks.
Haley has a huge arc surrounding her singing chops because Schwahn overheard Lenz singing in a parking lot and decided to give her character a singing career. Just like their characters, Lenz joined Tyler Hilton (Chris Keller) on tour. The court where the Tree Hill basketball games were shot is the same one Michael Jordan played on when he was in school, proving legends really are born in the Tree Hill High gym.19.
Paul Johansson (Dan) was a great basketball player when he was young.20.
But going into Season 5, Schwahn decided he wanted to actually incorporate the idea.35.
During a take, Burton forgot her line and Brundage recited it back to her! One Tree Hill was shot in Wilmington, North Carolina, and you can visit a lot of the shooting locations still today. And the River Court was really outside along the river, but was dismantled after the show wrapped.40.
James Lafferty didn't have to fake too much to play Nathan.
The actor was on his high school basketball team before being cast on One Tree Hill.7.
Burton, like Peyton, was a cheerleader at her high school. Schwahn created Peyton's infamous album wall in her bedroom because he saw a wall of old movie posters in a theater and thought it looked cool. He did a trial run in his OTH office and then re-created it on set.26.
Schwahn was inspired to write the school-shooting episode (Season 3, Episode 16) after hearing someone talk about Columbine and whispering the name.
