Chad Michael Murray Surprises 3-Time Cancer Survivor in Emotional Video - Watch!

Chad Michael Murray is doing something sweet for one of his fans!

The 37-year-old One Tree Hill actor stopped by Bailee Madison and Kaitlin Vilasuso‘s Just Between Us podcast to surprise 18-year-old three time cancer survivor Alexandra Wilson, who found escape during treatments by watching One Tree Hill.

After an emotional meeting, Chad told the story of becoming an actor, and how it was inspired by his time spent in a hospital as a teenager.

“When I was fifteen, I was in the hospital. Nothing, I mean, even comparable. I was there for about three months, and I became an actor because I wanted to create entertainment to keep people’s minds off it – to keep it in great places. And that’s what’s so beautiful. My goal always was – I remember, you know what it was for me? It was Scooby Doo…and The Simpsons is what made me happy. I would sit in bed, and I remember how lonely I was,” he explained.

“And I’d just turn on the TV and I’d just forget about everything that was going on for so long. I said, ‘That’s what I want to do. I want to be an actor someday so that I can give that to somebody else as a kid.’ So, you just brought everything full circle to know that you were sitting there, and watching something that we put our heart and soul into. Thank you so much. That warms my heart, beyond – you have no idea.”
