When the series premiered, Schwahn had it in his mind that it would end with Keith (Craig Sheffer), Karen, and Lucas living happily ever after. To separate her from co-star Hilarie Burton (Peyton), Bethany Joy Lenz (Haley) was told she had to dye her blonde curls before starting to shoot One Tree Hill.9.
Moira Kelly (Karen) found out she was pregnant after the pilot was shot, but Schwahn didn’t want to write the pregnancy into the show, so they used an array of props to hide her belly.10.
Schwahn was inspired to write the school-shooting episode (Season 3, Episode 16) after hearing someone talk about Columbine and whispering the name.
He felt someone should “say something loudly” about the tragedy.22.
Johansson filmed Season 1, Episode 12 with pneumonia and was quite high on cough syrup during most of the shots.20.
Then, he’d want to play with Antwon Tanner, who played Antwon “Skills” Taylor, so Schwahn wrote storylines for them.7.
Both brothers have a love of basketball, but when Lucas moves from playing in the park to playing for the varsity team, they must deal with the fact that they have to see each other.
Aside from having to deal with his issues with Nathan on the court, Lucas must also deal with the fact that Peyton Sawyer, his long-time crush, is dating Nathan (Something not lost on Nathan) & being dropped into a new circle of friends alongside his best friend Haley James.
