Chad Michael Murray promotes his new graphic novel, “Everlast,” during a Q&A session on Thursday (December 1) at Barnes & Noble in Los Angeles.
The 30-year-old actor sat down with ET at the event, where he shared why he took a year off after leaving One Tree Hill.
“I needed it to clear my mind and kind of fall back in love with the idea of acting. I met my mentors and started training and studying with the best people, and so now I have a new found love for acting,” CMM explained.
“My intent now is to just feed the creative fire as much as possible,” Chad, who’ll be returning to The CW drama for a guest appearance, added. “Because I don’t feel satisfied unless I put that creative ember out there. Acting is something I love and I want to make sure that the things I choose are things that I would want to see.”
