Believe me or not, I watched The O.C. when it aired on FOX on August 5, 2003, 10 years ago. OK, I watched maybe one and a half season, whereas the show ran for four seasons on FOX.
The series, created by Josh Schwartz, portrays the fictional lives of a group of teenagers and their families residing in the affluent seaside community of Newport Beach, in Orange County, California.
Anyway, to mark the 10th anniversary of FOX's teen soap hit show, that launched the careers of many stars and introduced some of the older cast members to a whole new audience, I have selected from the long list of actors who starred on the show a few familiar faces and underlined their connection with Summer Glau. Her connections with actors of a non genre, mainstream serie are not that many, but that's precisely what pushed me to write this blog post.
Benjamin McKenzie, who plays troubled teenager Ryan Atwood, never played with Summer Glau. After the serie stopped, he played in TNT's cop series Southland along with Regina King, who plays the district attorney in David Martin Porras short 'Inside the Box'.
Rachel Bilson, who plays Summer Roberts in The O.C., guest starred in an episode of Chuck and she's currently playing the lead role in The CW's comedy- drama 'Hart of Dixie', inwhich Wilson Bethel plays Bilson's neighbour and love interest. Wilson Bethel plays Summer Glau's husband in the drama short 'Inside the Box' (that short again!).
