Word has come our way that Mike Flanagan’s incredibly scary new flick Oculus (review) will be releasing wide in theatres a week earlier than expected via Blumhouse and Relativity. Look for it now on April 11, 2014, instead of the 18th.

Karen Gillan and Brenton Thwaites star with Rory Cochrane, Katee Sackhoff, Annalise Basso, and Garrett Ryan, along with James Lafferty and Miguel Sandoval. Oculus is directed by Mike Flanagan from a script he co-wrote with Jeff Howard, based on a short film Flanagan and Jeff Seidman made in 2005.

What have Chad Michael Murray, James Lafferty, Hilarie Burton, Bethany Joy Lenz and Sophia Bush been up to since leaving the TV show?

Ten years ago, Mark Schwahn introduced us to the lives of a group of teenagers in the popular drama ‘One Tree Hill’. Little did we know that these athletes and cheerleaders would become a source of comfort for an entire generation of viewers over the next decade.

At first the show revolved around the strained relationship between half-brothers Lucas and Nathan Scott. As the squabbling pair both played for the Tree Hill Ravens team, viewers all over the world were divided into two camps – ‘Team Lucas’ and ‘Team Nathan.

However, united by their hatred towards their father Dan, Lucas and Nathan soon found themselves bonding and became quite the unbreakable unit alongside their friends Peyton, Brooke and Haley.

Over One Tree Hill’s nine season run, the show pushed the boundaries of teen drama and often left viewers on tenterhooks. Who could forget the pivotal episode which saw Jimmy Edwards take a gun to school, resulting in the murder of Lucas’ uncle Keith? Or Peyton’s traumatic pregnancy?

With Lucas Scott himself, Chad Michael Murray, taking the lead role in ‘The Haunting of Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia’, we thought we would take a trip back down memory lane and see what the rest of our ‘One Tree Hill’ favourites have been up to since the end of the show.

Chad Michael Murray as Lucas Scott
Chad Michael Murray left the show at the end of series six, but returned briefly for a cameo in the final series. Murray’s exit was rather controversial as he was caught on tape stating that he was not returning to the show because “they wanted to save money”.

Since leaving the series Murray starred in the critically acclaimed film ‘Day One’ where he portrayed ‘To Write Love on Her Arms’ founder Jamie Tworkowski. As well as playing the lead in the upcoming ‘The Haunting of Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia’, he also currently has four films in post-production – ‘Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas’, ‘Other People’s Children’, ‘Cavemen’ and ‘Left Behind’. He also wrote the graphic novel ‘Everlast’.

James Lafferty as Nathan Scott
Lafferty starred as Nathan Scott during every series of ‘One Tree Hill’, although his role was significantly reduced during the final season. He was a fan-favourite due to his development from high-school bad boy to doting father and, of course, for his relationship with Haley.

Since the show’s end Lafferty has filmed ‘Oculus’, a horror movie alongside Karen Gillan, which received rave reviews at TIFF, and ‘Lost on Purpose’ with Octavia Spencer. Quite interestingly, ‘Lost on Purpose’ has just been digitally released after raising funds on Kickstarter. Lafferty currently also has a War film in pre-production, ‘Citizen Soldiers’, to be released at the end of next year.

Hilarie Burton as Peyton Sawyer
Burton left the show at the end of season six alongside Chad Michael Murray as star-crossed lovers Lucas and Peyton headed off to start a new life with their newborn baby. Peyton was at the heart of some tragic storylines, including the death of her mother and being attacked by a man pretending to be her long-lost brother.

Since leaving Burton has starred in a number of TV Movies and has recently had recurring roles in ‘White Collar’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Hostages’. She also gave birth to a son, Augustus, in 2010. She’ll next be seen in a made-for-tv movie ‘Christmas on the Bayou’ alongside old co-star, Tyler Hilton.

Bethany Joy Lenz as Haley James-Scott
Since her last day of filming, Lenz has appeared in ‘Men at Work’, ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation’ and ‘Sock Monkee Therapy’. She also had a recurring role in the final season of ‘Dexter’ as Cassie Jollenston.

Lenz has also continued to sing, just as her character Haley did, and has teased fans to expect an album soon stating that she will sell hard copies at an upcoming One Tree Hill convention. She also seems keen to perform live, recently asking her supporters where she should play on a hypothetical tour.

Sophia Bush as Brooke Davis
Bush continued working right after ‘One Tree Hill’ ended and had a leading role in comedy series ‘Partners’ alongside David Krumholtz, Michael Urie and Brandon Routh. However, the show was cancelled after filming thirteen episodes. Bush has since joined the cast of ‘Chicago PD’ as Erin Lindsay which is due to air in the US in January.

During her run on ‘One Tree Hill’, Bush was known for being an activist and has continued to promote issues including cancer awareness, poverty, oil spills and same sex-marriage. She broke up with her co-star, Austin Nichols, shortly after they finished filming the series in 2012.

Joining the slew of television shows and movies filming in Chicago is Crisis, a political drama starring Gillian Anderson and Dermot Mulroney set to air on NBC in February.

While shooting this fall, many of the cast members are calling Chicago home base for a few months, including James Lafferty of One Tree Hill fame. We talked to Lafferty about his Chicago musts and being behind the camera.

You’ve acted, directed, and produced. Which do you enjoy the most?
JAMES LAFFERTY: It’s hard to say which I like the most, but I know which one I like the least: producing. I’m not wired to be a producer. If you’re acting or directing, you can immerse yourself in the material; as a producer, you have to be aware of so many external influences, and I’m not the best at balancing those with the creative aspects of production.

Where are you originally from, and where are you staying locally?
JL: I’m originally from Hemet, California, which is about two hours outside of Los Angeles. I’m staying in the Lakeshore East area for the time being.

What do you like about Chicago, and how is it different from LA?
JL: So far, I like how accessible the city is. The public transportation is better and cabs are cheaper than in Los Angeles, which is nice. People are friendlier here [in comparison to] any other major city I’ve visited.

What memorable sites or restaurants have you visited?
JL: I had a pretty great sushi dinner at Sunda (110 W. Illinois St., 312-644-0500) one of the first nights I was here. The Art Institute (111 S. Michigan Ave., 312-443-3600) and Millennium Park (201 E. Randolph St., 312-742-1168) really blew me away the first time I had a chance to explore the area. I try to spend as much time as I can around there. I also went and saw a castmate’s play, The Crownless King at the Chopin Theatre (1542 W. Division St., 773-278-1500), which is an awesome establishment. I’ll definitely be going back there to see more plays. It’s a unique atmosphere. I’ve also gotten to see a Cubs game and a Bears game since I’ve been here, both of which were a blast—which goes without saying.

What have you not yet gotten the chance to do or see that you’d like to do or see before leaving?
JL: A Bulls game and a Blackhawks game are a must for me. I won’t leave the city before getting the chance to take a picture in front of the [Michael] Jordan statue [outside the United Center]. Also, I would like to explore Wicker Park more. It seems like the nightlife there has a lot to offer.
