Chad Michael Murray: 'One Tree Hill' Fans Are the Best Fans in the World

Chad Michael Murray: 'One Tree Hill' Fans Are the Best Fans in the World

Chad Michael Murray tries to keep a low profile while checking out a clothing rack during his shopping trip on Tuesday afternoon (April 15) in Los Angeles.

The 32-year-old actor recently opened up about whether he would do a One Tree Hill reunion.

“Oh! Man, I don’t know. I think Mark [Schwahn] did a great job in having Lucas come back in Season 9. It was something I wanted to give the fans,” Chad told the Huffington Post. “I really wanted to go back and just give them a little swan song while we had that chance. But I think it ended in a really good place.”

“This is the first I’ve heard about any reunions, so I’d need to sit on it and think about it. But I think that we have the best fans in the world,” Chad added. “The One Tree Hill fans are incredible and I’m grateful for every moment that I’ve gotten to spend with them and everything that they’ve done. They just followed for years and years and years, God, how many years has it been, 10? Ten or 11 years since that show started, so that unbelievable fan base, I admire them.”

    Yeah right. Nice try CMM, but you were a little biattch over the last few seasons. Just taking off the show and forcing Peyton Sawyer to take off the show too.

    @robin: He never said he wasn’t a ******. He said that he appreciates and loves the fans who stood by a show that was a huge part of his life and career. He said he was glad he was able to comeback and was glad Mark brought him back, but he’s unsure about a reunion. Don’t bring up things that were unsaid. You’re commenting on things that had nothing to do with what he said at all. I guess there’s always that person who creates drama where there doesn’t need to be.

    Give it a rest. Everyone knows that Chad is a liar and the last thing he will ever do is appreciate anyone. He’s just “thanking” the fans to seem grateful and to pretend that he’s a “good guy” when in reality he’s a huge douche. The crew on OTH will be the first ones to tell you how much trash he used to talk about the fans. The guy was done with OTH after season 4 and was pissed that it kept getting renewed because of how persistent the fans were. Why do you think he finally said to hellll with it and finally left after season 6???? And not to forget that he actually used to say that once he left, OTH would crash and burn. Bet it pissed him off to see that it still continued all the way up to season 9.

    @Get Real: Considering I was an extra/stand-in and worked around the set of OTH from Season 1 to 7, I think I have a bit more insight than you. I was also a fan and Chad was nothing but gracious. He also never said anything about the fans that the rest of the cast didn’t, a lot of them didn’t like when people would pry into “Chopia” and proposition them for dates, etc. There was more to it. They didn’t hate on the fans, there were select bunches that came to the set often than were groupies and/or didn’t know when enough was enough. They acted as if because they were fans, they were entitled to more than they should be. Also, Sophia was done with the show too, so was Joy, nearly all of them wanted to move on and do movies because they didn’t want to be typecast for OTH forever and a lot of them felt the story went south after the time jump. The time jump was partly done because the cast wanted to play their roles differently because they were sick of playing teens. Sophia and Hilarie more than anyone. The fact is, only few of them knew when to get out instead of either milking the money and mini fame or sticking by it for the fans. They were still ALL appreciative of their fans and they were gracious even if at times they were fed up. I loved the show and worked on the show and felt that there were times when the story was stupid and draining. You will not find one cast of a show that has been on the air for more than 5 seasons that doesn’t want to branch out. There were people on the crew who liked some of the actors and some who didn’t. It wasn’t just Chad. He had b_tchy moments but so did James, Sophia, Joy, and a few others. Sophia use to have a fit over her wardrobe. So as someone who was technically crew, you have your facts totally wrong.

    If you think your long rant will change my mind. It WON’T. You were a part of the crew?? Good for you! My uncle was on the crew from the year OTH started upto when it ended 9 years later. The stuff I’ve heard over the years regarding as to what actually went on behind the scenes and who was nice and who wasn’t is enough to write into a “tell-all” book and bring in enough money for me to retire for good. Yes, they all had there moments and they all threw fits at one point or another. However, Chad threw more tantrums then the rest of the cast combined. Not only did many members of the crew dislike him, but several of the actors (I refuse to list names and start more drama) really disliked Chad as well. One of Chad’s biggest irritating habits was being nice to your face but then talking sh*t to another crew member/actor. The cast has all obviously moved on now but the reality is that several of them with the exception of a few, wouldn’t waste their time going out of there way to ever speak to him again.

    Erin Says:

    @Get Real: You are the biggest hypocrite. You have he said she said, I do not. Furthermore, you got involved in my response to someone else when I was trying to avoid drama and then you added fuel to the fire and in your latest response want to avoid drama? Furthermore you talk about how the cast has moved on and yet you, someone who wasn’t even there or directly involved can’t seem to move on. One tantrum is one too many and all of them were guilty of that…especially Chad, Sophia and Joy. In fact, Joy was directly rude to people right in front of me. So if you think your long rant about second hand conversations and stories you’ve heard is going to change my mind, IT WON’T. There are many cast members who won’t associate with others now, not just Chad. I could give you a list, but it wouldn’t make a difference. These situations happen on movie and TV sets, and in every day long jobs, all the time. And I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t make a dime on your book because OTH didn’t generate enough popularity with the public so no one would be interested in BTS. It generated less than 3 million viewers for crying out loud. Not only do you need to ‘get real’, but you need to get over yourself and get a clue in the process.

    Erin Says:

    @Get Real: The fact is, this post was about Chad not wanting to do a reunion but saying he admired the fanbase. It had nothing to do with life on set, which was what my original post was about. If you want to rant about how much you dislike Chad, why don’t you get started on that book?

    Sou Says:

    Well thank you Erin for all those insights even if it wasnt the initial purpose of the post ha ! Im rewatchin OTH right now as Im writing this post so it’s always interesting to get to know the behind the scene dynamic :)
    PS : I would never have imagined that Joy could be rude to people like that lol

    Erin Says:

    @Sou: I kind of hated even putting all of that out there, and I regret doing so just because someone provoked me. It’s the past and it wasn’t headline news. We all have our bad days and Joy is no exception, same for Sophia and Chad. Nobody is perfect, actors too. Some people just like to dredge up drama just to be rude. The “Get Real” girl above went on and on about how rude Chad was and was being rude herself. Kettle meet Pot, ya know? People just love to be mean when they can be anonymous on the internet.

    Get Real Says:

    Just SHUT UP why don’t you?
    Don’t even think about talking down to me or acting as if I have NO clue as to what I’m talking about. The only reason I even responded to your idiotic comment was because you got on someone else’s case for voicing their opinion/thoughts regarding Chad. THEN you go about acting as if Chad is some holy person who’s done no wrong. So think TWICE before calling me a hypocrite because your very own actions seem to suggest otherwise.
    And what the helll makes YOU think that I was never there and only know what I do from “second-hand conversations?” Do you really think I never took advantage of having a family member on set everyday??? Are you really that stupid and naive?? I know what I’m talking about from not only hearing things from my uncle but also getting the chance to visit him numerous times over the course of the show and personally witnessing things that went down on the sets during filming.
    In all honesty, the fact that you’ve been so defensive and jumping up to protect/defend Chad is kind of hilarious. Are you on his payroll or something?? Lmao

    Erin Says:

    @Get Real: 1) I didn’t yell at someone who voiced an opinion. The guy was acting like Chad should bring drama to an interview and air demons. 2) I was never hypocritical in anything I said. 3) Maybe it was the fact that you said you heard stories and never mentioned that you were there? Um, duh. BTW “visiting” a set is not” working” on a set, you still know squat. I was there a whole lot more. 4) LOL. I’m sorry, I can’t even address everything else you said. I’m still cracking up on how you say Chad throws tantrums and you just frantically went off the deep end. I guess it takes one to know one, huh?

    It’s so nice to hear from him again. One Tree Hill is my favourite show of all time but I don’t want a reunion. We don’t need one. The show ended perfectly and we have over a hundred hours worth of these characters to rewatch over and over.

    Get Real Says:

    Lmao. I see someone’s getting a little defensive. So I don’t know squat huh??? Yet someone claiming to be an extra on the set seems to think she knows everything and anything about the cast and crew. Sweetheart, let me get this through your THICK skull. When I said I visited the set, it wasn’t once, it wasn’t twice. I was there more times then I can recall. And lets just say that I wasn’t always “visiting”. When you know people who have daily access to the cast and other members of the crew, you’ll be surprised at how much you get to see and witness. And FYI, do you really think I didn’t get to be an extra too? Looks like someone’s letting being a meaningless extra get right to her head. It’s quite amusing to see how much you think you know about the cast. I don’t whether to laugh at you or to genuinely feel sorry for you. Lol
    Oh and FYI, I had no idea you were a psychic too! So “you were there a lot more” then I was, huh? Hmmmm, seriously though….am I supposed to laugh or be really concerned?

    Erin Says:

    @Get Real: Whoa girl, relax. You’re starting to embarrass yourself….and stop adding to your back story with every comment because now I just don’t believe you were involved with the show at all. Anything you said that sounded believable now just sounds like you were hyping it up to make it look like you were right. I have nothing to prove to you because I was there and I know what I saw, what I heard, and how those actors were in front of the camera and behind the scenes. I hope you enjoyed your “visits” and your uncles “stories” and in time, I hope you find a way to move on. Chad and everyone else has.

    Meghan Says:

    @Get Real: Why do u care so much? It also sounds to me like you’re really way too hung up over JJ comments and even more so obsessed with how an actor acted on set of his show over 5 years ago. You must hold a deeper grudge than Sophia Bush and he cheated on her. What exactly did he do to you? Also, you make it seem like your uncle likes to gossip too much. Considering the show was initially half centered around Chad’s character, did your uncle also complain about the success of the show being the reason he got paid every week? Since Chad played a major role in the success of OTH, and in turn your uncle getting his paycheck, I hope he’s not as bitter as you are.

    Meghan Says:

    On another note, this post just made me miss OTH. Le sigh.I think it’s way too early for a reunion, so I sense his hesitation. Maybe they could wait until the show has been off the air for 5 or more years before they all reunite.

    Wow Says:

    @Get Real: Maybe you shouldn’t be so concerned about Chad when you’re sitting on this board name calling and freaking out over someone else’s attitude. I read the thread and it’s so funny that you thought you were being ‘talked down to’ when the other girl clearly took your direct words and used them back at you, ha. You look worse than you’re making Chad out to be.
