Austin Nichols is proud to be a One Tree Hill cast member!
The 29-year-old actor, who’s dating his co-star Sophia Bush, recently sat down with Examiner.com to talk what’s next for the show, his newest interest and finally being a One Tree Hill regular…
On being a recurring character on the show: “It’s great. It’s exciting. It’s different from being a guest. You feel more responsible for the show as a whole, for the final in product, as a regular. But it’s been fun. As far as I can tell, this season there has been really great material and better than any season before it so it’s been really cool.”
On what he hopes happens on the show with Sophia: “When Mark (Schwahn, the show’s creator) asked me to come back as a series regular I told him I only would if we could make a really powerful love story for Brooke and Julian. I wanted him to give them the greatest love story. I mentioned The Notebook to him. I wanted him to give them that kind of love and story, a fountainhead love.
“And in The Notebook even when they fight, it’s how it is now for Brooke and Julian, it’s fun to watch them fight. It’s sexy. It’s inspiring.”
On what he likes to do off-screen: “I’ve really been interested in architecture lately. I really want to buy a house and fix it up. There’s this incredible artist out there that inspires me, Donald Judd. All of his work is in Marfa, TX. It’s a really small town that has kept his work and the buildings that he owned all around it. The town now is really influenced by his style and it’s great.”
