“And so I think at the end of it, it really let me just let go of it.” Although Bush made it sound like she didn’t think dating co-stars was a good idea, she dated two other One Tree Hill actors after splitting with Murray. She also dated Austin Nichols until February 2012, Us Weekly reported at the time.
In 2013, she started dating Dan Fredinburg, a Google engineer.
Murray's mother left him when he was young, and Lucas was abandoned by his father .
Murray's passion for the role led the producers to cast him as Lucas.
But in September 2015, Us Weekly published photos of the two holding hands in New York City.
He was involved in a complicated love-triangle between Brooke and Peyton, but eventually realized Peyton was the one for him.While on Watch What Happens Live in January 2014, Bush said that she and Murray were “two stupid kids who had no business being in a relationship in the first place.” “At the end of the day, we’re grownups, and I actually think it’s interesting that when people split in a way that’s unpleasant, they usually just go on quite literally hating each other—or the person in my situation hates the other person, whatever—but when you have to work with somebody for another half a decade, you kind of have to deal with it.Because for me, at the end of the day, my job is my priority,” Bush said on Watch What Happens Live.For five months in 2005, she was married to her One Tree Hill co-star Chad Michael Murray, but their divorce wasn’t finalized until December 2006.In 2015, Murray married actress Sarah Christine Roemer and the couple are expecting their second child.After a recurring role as a bisexual teen on Nip/Tuck, Bush came to prominence as sexy Brooke Davis on One Tree Hill in 2003, and while the show was on hiatus, she took on some big-screen roles in films such as John Tucker Must Die.However, it was her off-screen antics that won her the most attention.Hilarie Burton, auditioned for the part of Ed Harris's daughter in the film Radio.She was encouraged by subsequent callbacks, but did not land the role.The producers were originally unsure as to who Murray would play.Series creator Mark Schwahn wanted him to play the character of Nathan Scott since Murray had played a bad guy several times before, he felt it was only natural to give him this role.
