BIOGRAPHY FOR SOPHIA BUSH
Sophia Anna Bush (born Jul. 8, 1982 (29 years ago)) is an American actress. She is perhaps best known for her role as Brooke Davis in the CW series One Tree Hill and for her movie portrayals in the 2007 (4 years ago) remake The Hitcher and John Tucker Must Die.
Bush, an only child, was born and raised in Pasadena, California to Charles William Bush, an advertising and celebrity photographer, and Maureen, a photography studio manager. Bush has Italian ancestry, and attended Westridge School for Girls (Pasadena), as well as the University of Southern California. She was a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority, where she served as Social Chair.
In 2000 (11 years ago), she was the Tournament of Roses Parade Queen. Bush attended USC for three years before landing the role of Brooke Davis on One Tree Hill (2003, 8 years ago).
Bush made her first big screen appearance in the comedy Van Wilder. Following, she made appearances in several TV shows, including Nip/Tuck, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, and Punk'd. She was cast as Kate Brewster in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, but was replaced by Claire Danes because the director thought she was too young. In 2003 (8 years ago), she won the role of Brooke Davis in the TV series One Tree Hill. The series rose Bush to fame.
In between seasons of One Tree Hill, Bush has been cast in several films, such as Supercross, Stay Alive, John Tucker Must Die, and The Hitcher (the 2007 (4 years ago) remake).
Bush received a "Rising Star" award at the Vail movie Festival for her work in The Hitcher. She has also won three Teen Choice Awards for her work in John Tucker Must Die and The Hitcher.
Bush starred in Francois Velle's The Narrows with Kevin Zegers, Eddie Cahill and Vincent D'Onofrio. She played the beautiful, intelligent and self-assured Kathy Popovich. Filming began in New York on Apr. 24, 2008 (3 years ago) and is due for a 2009 (2 years ago) release date. Bush is also starring in the movie Table for Three, which is not being released theatrically and is instead going Direct to DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) on Jun. 23, 2009 (2 years ago). The story centers on a suddenly single young man, Scott Teller (Brandon Routh), who invites a "perfect couple," Mary and Ryan (Bush and Jesse Bradford), to share his large apartment. When Teller meets the girl of his dreams, Leslie (Jennifer Morrison (18 walls)), he believes that Ryan and Mary are intentionally sabotaging his chances with her because they desperately need him in their life to hold their dysfunctional relationship together.
On Apr. 16, 2005 (6 years ago), Bush married actor Chad Michael Murray, her One Tree Hill co-star. They dated for almost two years before they were married in Santa Monica. They announced their separation on sep. 26, 2005 (6 years ago) after five months of marriage when Bush filed court papers to have their marriage annulled citing fraud. In dec. 2006 (5 years ago), Bush and Murray's divorce was made final. Bush was in a relationship with Stay Alive co-star Jon Foster after her divorce until Aug. 2007 (4 years ago). Later, rumors surfaced that Bush and Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo were dating. They were reportedly seen together in Texas.
In dec. 2007 (4 years ago), it was reported by Rush & Molloy in the New York Daily News that Bush had "now hooked up with co-star James Lafferty"; the report mentioned that a rep for the actress denied there was any romance. In May 2008 (3 years ago), photos surfaced of Lafferty and Bush at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which fueled rumors of a possible romance. On Oct. 27, 2008 (3 years ago), Murray confirmed the romance between Bush and Lafferty. "[Sophia and I] are both professional and mature enough to get through it," he said. "And now it's just easy. We're just friends. And she's got James, and James and I are friends."
On Apr. 23, 2009 (2 years ago), it was reported that Lafferty, who was in Paris promoting the fifth season DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) of One Tree Hill, was seen strolling the streets and said that she is single.
Bush has been supportive of Barack Obama as President. In Feb. 2008 (3 years ago), she made several appearances in Texas in support of the Obama campaign in the Texas Presidential primary election. She was joined in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Waco by fellow actor Adam Rodriguez. Touring mostly college campuses, they urged young voters to get involved politically.
