One Tree Hill regular Bethany Joy Galeotti has spoken out about the end of the glossy teen drama, which came to an end in the US last night.
Galeotti played Haley since the very first episode of the series, and recalled on her personal blog about how she first auditioned alongside Chad Michael Murray.
She wrote: “During my test I was in a room full of executives while reading the scene with Chad Michael Murray and there were about 4 other girls going for the part, waiting in the hallway.
“There was a moment about halfway through the reading when I was sitting next to Chad and I playfully knocked the side of his leg with mine. I felt the energy of the whole room shift and I knew at that moment I had gotten the part.”
Of the cast and crew, she added: “As the years went on we fought and made up, we learned from each other, we got in trouble, we grew as actors, we grew as people, and we were given a ridiculous amount of grace by our crew and producers. When I think of some of the things we put them through, I’m so grateful for the classy way they handled guiding us through.”
The series will conclude in the UK next year.
Apparently Haley thinks he’s lying, as she ended the episode with a call to 911. Not enough credit is given to Bethany Joy for her wonderful work on One Tree Hill, so I will take this time to shower her with praise for the fantastic job she did of portraying the worried wife.
Haley started out in a bit of denial, then began to worry, then seriously freaked out. At each point, Galeotti made the necessary changes in her demeanor, and had me believing every step of the way that she was seriously worried about her husband.
Was that final phone call really from a woman that knew for sure the man she was just talking to kidnapped her husband? I’m still not sure, and I don’t think Haley was either. She was certainly scared, as I would be too if a murderer grabbed me by the arms and stared into my eyes – but I don’t think she is certain Dan had something to do with it. Even if she’s 50% sure, however, that’s worth calling the cops, so good job Mrs. Scott.
