The O.C. only lasted for four seasons, but it made a lasting impact! The series started out strong as one of the best shows on air in 2003, but quickly went downhill. The show follows the story of Ryan Atwood, who’s adopted into a wealthy Newport Family and creates a new life for himself alongside his foster brother Seth Cohen and his off and on love interest, Marissa Cooper. Similar to most great shows, The O.C. was such a success because of beloved main characters like Seth Cohen, Summer Roberts and Ryan Atwood, but there were also a lot of minor characters who came onto the scene and spiced up the storyline! Here’s a look at 10 minor character from The O.C. who stole the show!

10. Charlotte Morgan

Charlotte Morgan met Kirsten Cohen during a stint in rehab and, unfortunately, she didn’t have the best intentions. She tried to scam the poor vulnerable Kirsten by pretending to be an alcoholic to get Kirsten’s money. Thankfully, Julie Cooper is all up in everybody’s business in Newport and when she realized what Morgan was up to, she gladly ran her out of town. Villains are never fan favorites, but they are always memorable because they annoys us so much we simply cannot forget them!

9. D.J.

D.J. made his brief appearance in season 2 of The O.C. as Julie Cooper-Nichol’s yard boy. He has a romance with Marissa Cooper in the summer between season 1 and 2. D.J. was mainly memorable just because he was so good looking! In Summer’s exact words, DJ was “a hot, hot yard guy, who was hot.” He only sticks around for about six episodes, just long enough to enrage Julie Cooper, who thinks D.J. is beneath the social status of her daughter. She tries to pay him off, but he just gives the check to Marissa and then dumps her because he feels like she’s only dating him to get back at her mother — which she definitely was!
