It’s the beginning of the end for One Tree Hill, and it’s really official now that the last season is under way. No more denying it; soon we’ll have no more OTH in our lives.
Lucky for you guys, we were on set while they filmed the final season last year, so we made sure to squeeze every last bit of scoop and nostalgia out of the cast. Here’s part one of our exclusive sit-down with the stars of OTH where they talk about saying goodbye to Tree Hill and what’s ahead for their characters…
Austin Nichols and Shantel VanSanten may be relative OTH newbies, but that doesn’t mean season nine will put them on the sidelines. After all, one managed to marry the one and only Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush) and the other is part of what we hear is a very intriguing storyline. We’re talking about Clay (Robert Buckley) and Quinn, of course.
“I think that we’ve presented our characters with a lot of challenges in these 13 episodes,” Shantel tells us. “I think that we have the strength to make it through these challenges that we’re presented, but you never know where life leads you. And I think obviously the end goal that we both have in mind is that we don’t see our life ending without each other. We see it being forever, but you just never know.”
