Schwahn wanted Chad Michael Murray to play Nathan , but Murray wanted to play Lucas, so the producers agreed to cast him in that role. 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. Sophia Bush read for the role of Brooke three times.
The first time she was told she didn't look sexy enough, the second time she was told she looked too sexy, and the third time she was offered the part. Moira Kelly Karen found out she was pregnant after the pilot was shot, but Schwahn didn't want to write the pregnancy into the show, so they used an array of props to hide her belly.
Though Jackson Brundage was only 6 when he was cast as Jamie, he was really good at memorizing lines. When Jamie was first written into the show, a lot of his scenes were dictated by what Brundage wanted to do. He would tell Schwahn he wanted to eat ice cream, and in nearly every scene, he'd be eating ice cream. Tanner read his lines only in the pilot, so after it aired, he called Schwahn up and said, "I didn't know [Nathan and Lucas] were brothers! Millicent's Lisa Goldstein Kirsch glasses are actually Kirsch's.

The check Millicent writes out to Brooke for the first dress sold in the Tree Hill Clothes Over Bros store was never cashed because Brooke knew Millicent couldn't afford it. But instead of throwing it out, Bush took the prop home. Lafferty took the Ravens jersey he wore in the pilot and the NS23 shoes from the set. 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.

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. Paul Johansson Dan was a great basketball player when he was young. Johansson filmed Season 1, Episode 12 with pneumonia and was quite high on cough syrup during most of the shots. Music was such a huge part of One Tree Hill that the fictional club Tric was written into the show in Season 2 so the writers could feature more bands and artists.
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.
Schwahn was inspired to write the school-shooting episode Season 3, Episode 16 after hearing someone talk about Columbine and whispering the name. He felt someone should "say something loudly" about the tragedy. It never made it to air, but Clay's Robert Buckley original first scene on One Tree Hill was him giving a lecture to a room of students. There is a book with the same title as Lucas' novel, An Unkindness of Ravens , that was published in the mid-'80s.
When the series premiered, Schwahn had it in his mind that it would end with Keith Craig Sheffer , Karen, and Lucas living happily ever after. Things changed a bit. Sheffer thought the way Keith died was "brilliant.
Johansson, on the other hand, "hated" the script for Season 3, Episode 16 when he read it because he didn't want to pull a gun on Sheffer. His ancestry was distinguished but nonconformist by tradition and neither lavish nor rich. He never learned to drive one. At Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, he took a history degree that included architectural history, and back again in south London, this time in a bedsit, began to piece together a freelance life that revolved around the Architectural Press, publisher of the Architectural Review.
Stamp took the pseudonym Piloti, which are the piers on which a lot of modernist architecture rests, and wrote his first column in It would be fair to say that by the early s, Stamp gave a very good impression of a Young Fogey. He wrote for the Spectator and the age of denim never touched him: he wore tweed jacket, scarves and polished shoes.

Stamp became a senior lecturer and then a professor in Glasgow, and made friends with unfogeyish Glaswegians such as the former shipyard worker and Marxist Jimmy Reid — a man he tremendously admired. But the Glasgow years were eventually unhappy: the restoration of his house was unaffordable, his marriage failed, and in he returned to London, where he worked as a writer and occasional lecturer. In , he married Rosemary Hill , the biographer of Augustus Pugin and widow of the poet Christopher Logue , for whom Stamp had designed a handsome memorial stele in Kensal Green cemetery much in the style of Greek Thomson and erected the year before.
He was among the first writers to take a serious interest in the colonial architecture of India, and his early concern about the fate of the telephone boxes designed by Giles Gilbert Scott grandson of the first GG Scott inspired the campaign that saved many of them. Through his journalism, his campaigning work and his fierce independence, it was Stamp, arguably more than any writer since Betjeman, who made sure that architecture remains high in the list of British public concerns.
