Leyton forever and always! ‘One Tree Hill’ stars Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton reunited for a fan convention on Aug. 8, reinstating our love for fan-favorite couple Peyton and Lucas! See the epic pic here.
Can we go back to Tree Hill now, please? Chad Michael Murray, 33, and Hilarie Burton, 33, reunited for EyeCon3000 in Wilmington, North Carolina on Aug. 8, and it was everything we wanted and more! It’s been thee years since One Tree Hill has been off the air — and even longer since Chad and Hilarie were on the show — so this reunion pic made us feel incredibly nostalgic!
It doesn’t get better than this! Chad and Hilarie, whose characters Peyton and Lucas were arguably the best couple on the show, took pics with fans at the celebrity autograph convention. In one pic (above), they adorably hold hands with each other surrounding smiling fans. In another pic (below), Chad takes a selfie with a group of fans and Hilarie. BRB, dying of cuteness! Also at the convention was Paul Johansson, who played Lucas’ estranged father, Dan Scott, Lee Norris, who played “Mouth,” Craig Sheffer, who played Lucas’ uncle Keith, and Bethany Joy Lenz, who played Lucas’ childhood best friend, Haley. You can check out fan pics with the cast here!
Lucas and Peyton’s relationship was one of the most compelling love stories on a teen drama. They fell in love in the earlier seasons, and eventually married by the lake where they first met. Hilarie and Chad both left OTH at the end of season six, so you can imagine our excitement over seeing them reunited!
So when is the whole OTH cast going to reunite you may ask? HollywoodLife.com chatted EXCLUSIVELY with Bryan Greenberg, who played Peyton’s other love interest Jake, and he said of a reunion: “You never know! I’ve been pretty lucky that cast members from OTH, October Road and How to Make it in America have all been super supportive.” We can only hope it’ll happen one day, but for now, we can gush over Chad and Hilarie’s amazing pic!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you miss OTH? Were Peyton and Lucas your favorite couple? Let us know!
