Season 1: Skanky Brooke
A mere slutty shadow of the incredible woman she is today, Brooke’s brain was literally in her pants when we first introduced to her in season one — and when did that ever not end up getting her into trouble? During HollywoodLife.com‘s visit to the One Tree Hill set, Sophia Bush told us Brooke was originally “acting out so much to cover up how much pain she [was] in on the inside.” Cue throwing herself at Lucas (Chad Michael Murray), knowing he was into her best friend Peyton (Hilarie Burton), and ultimately lying to him about a pregnancy once he’d dumped her. Still, Sophia told us she loves that Brooke’s been through all that. “I love that there are parts of [Brooke’s] past she’s proud of, and also parts of her past she wishes she could pull a ‘do over’ card on,” she said. “I think that’s reality for each of us.”
‘One Tree Hill’ returns at 8 p.m. tonight on The CW! Browse our gallery of Brooke’s nine-year journey, including new quotes from Sophia Bush.
As we enter the final season of One Tree Hill and prepare to say goodbye to the characters we’ve watched grow for the past nine years, HollywoodLife.com is taking a minute to spotlight each of their journeys. Our first victim — uh, person — is Brooke Davis-Baker, played to perfection by Sophia Bush. Join us as we watch Brooke evolve from a skanky, insecure cheerleader to a confident wife and mom of twins.
OK, now it’s time for you to share your own opinions of Brooke. Did you like her better fun and slutty, or do you think she’s better off mature and confident? Love her or hate her, drop your thoughts in the comments section below!
