One Tree Hill was one of the most popular teen drama series, which premiered in the early 2000s. The drama was set in the fictional town of Tree Hill in North Carolina and initially followed the lives of two half-brothers, Lucas Scott and Nathan Scott. Recently Sophia Bush, who portrayed the character of Brooke Davis on the drama series revealed that grown-ups on the sets of her show were controlling and manipulative towards her and her co-stars. 

One Tree Hill's Sophia Bush talks about being controlled on sets of her teen drama 

In an interview for the Chicks in the Office podcast, Sophia Bush spoke at length about her time on the sets of the very popular show titled One Tree Hill. She revealed that it was a strange time for her and her co-stars to be in their early 20s and play the role of high-schoolers and also it was weird because, in some ways, they were treated like adults. She added that in retrospect, she can see the ways in which she and the cast members were fetishized and they had this lens of adulthood put over them. 

Sophia mentioned how she and her co-actors were supposed to know everything and have answers, and be, ultimately, professional. Talking further about her time on the sets of the show, she added that she, along with other actors, was being controlled and manipulated by grown-ups on the set whom they trusted. Bush also quipped how they trusted these grown-ups who did not want the cast members to be close because they thought the actors would band together and ask for more money. She concluded by saying that it was just very weird and those were just things they were not aware of at the time.
