A group of “One Tree Hill” alumni recently got together for a fan convention in Paris, with Sophia Bush delighting the “OTH” U.S. fans with her Instagram photos featuring castmates Hilarie Burton, Bethany Joy Lenz, Paul Johansson and James Lafferty. In a recent interview for her guest role on “Forever,” Burton tells Zap2it that getting together in such a beautiful city was a real treat.
“When we all get together, it’s always a special bond. We lived
through it together,” says Burton, laughing. “That was not an easy production and it lasted a
very long time, so we know each other probably better than we should.
But it was great fun. Sophia and I met up in the lounge in the airport
in New York and flew over together, went to the hotel together, it was
girls’ weekend. Then after the convention, Paul took us out on a date in
Paris. We went and had dinner under the Eiffel Tower.”
“If you’re gonna hang out with the people who know you probably
better than the rest of the planet, it was a great place to all get
together,” she adds.
Aside from getting to jet-set to Paris for a weekend, Burton says it was also really special because they just don’t get to hang out with each other much since the show wrapped in 2012.
“We don’t see each other very often, we’re all split up,” says Burton. “Joy and the
boys are in L.A., Soph’s in Chicago, I’m in New York, everybody’s
spread out all over the place.”
But she says they do try to stay in touch as much as they can. “The person I talk to the most right now
is probably Antwon [Taylor]. He and I text like crazy, we have a pretty
fun relationship,” says Burton. “And Tyler Hilton and his girlfriend Megan Park and I
are really good friends. … and I hung out with [Chad Michael Murray] this summer, it was a great time!
I miss working with that guy.”
Speaking of CMM, fans who are dying to know if Burton and Murray’s on-screen couple, Peyton and Lucas, are still together and raising their family will be pleased to know Burton’s answer to that question is: “Heck yeah!”
“They probably fight a lot, there’s always something,” she adds with a laugh. “But yeah, they’re together. They are each other’s sanctuary. They’re totally together.”
