Cast of One Tree Hill: Where Are They Now?
All good things must come to an end, but fans of the hugely popular series “One Tree Hill” may find themselves bereft after the show’s finale in April of 2012. Though the show will live on in hearts and reruns everywhere, the talented cast has moved onwards to new successes.

As Brooke Davis, Sophia Bush captured the hearts of viewers with her loyalty and determination. Sophia was in the spotlight for several romances with co-stars on “One Tree Hill” (she married, then later divorced, her costar Chad Michael Murray and was romantically linked to both James Lafferty and Austin Nichols), but has since settled into a relationship with a prominent Google executive, Dan Fredinburg. She is highly active in her support of the Democratic Party, and has most recently signed on with Target in a program to raise money for schools. She is scheduled to appear in a new series this year called “Hatfields and McCoys”.

She is raising her daughter, Maria Rose, whom she had with her ex-husband Michael Galeotti. The two divorced when her daughter was just a year old.

Shantel VanSanten has been extremely busy since wrapping up her role as Quinn James. In 2013, she’ll be appearing in “The Glades” on The A&E Network, Fox’s “Gang Related” and “Beauty and the Beast” on The CW.
