What Ever Happened To One Tree Hill’s James Lafferty?

Chances are if you were growing up in the early 2000s One Tree Hill might have been in your TV show queue. The teen drama centered around the fictional small town of Tree Hill North Carolina where estranged half brothers Lucas Scott by Chad Michael Murray and Nathan Scott by James Lafferty juggle belonging in their dysfunctional family along with the trials and tribulations of high school love and basketball. 

The CW series ran for nine seasons spanning from 2003 to 2012 until it was cancelled despite having a loyal fanbase. Members from the cast like Sophia Bush who dated and married Murray for just five short months before an annulment went onto other projects like Chicago P.D while her co star Hilarie Burton who has married to fellow actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan opened up to Variety in 2017 about suffering sexual and emotional abuse at the hands of the shows creator Mark Schwahn. Burton has since co hosted a One Tree Hill themed podcast called Drama Queens alongside Bush and Bethany Joy Lenz Laffertys wife in the series. Unlike his on screen brother Lafferty has been appearing both in front of and behind the camera since the shows wrap.

Perhaps one of the reasons fans loved One Tree Hill was due to James Lafferty’s portrayal of Nathan Scott. The role was complex he appeared as a cocky average jock but faced the pressures and high standards to which his former basketball star father held him. According to IMDb Lafferty appeared on 187 episodes of the show and it was through acting on this particular show that Lafferty tried his hand at directing for four episodes. After One Tree Hill concluded Lafferty landed roles in movies like Small Town Crime and Waffle Street in addition to a stint on television shows like WGNs Underground and The Royals on E. In an interview with Us Weekly in 2021 Lafferty talked about the blow to his ego that came after One Tree Hill ended I thought that when that show ended things would be pretty easy for me that it would be easy to work again in television he said. Coming out of One Tree Hill think it was a real reality check. It was a real wake-up call as to how incredibly competitive it is out there.
