Connections with Actors from The O.C.

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON Aug 07, 2013 / 2 COMMENTS


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!).

Melinda Clark, who plays Julie Cooper in The O.C., has played in so many movies/tv shows that it would have been impossible not to find something related to Summer Glau. I have picked up her guest appearance in Firefly episode twelve titled 'Heart of Gold', inwhich she plays Nandi, an old friend of Inara's, who is running a brothel on the moon of Deadwood.

Chris Carmack, who plays Luke Ward in The O.C., is well known by all Summer Glau fans for his role as her unfortunate husband in Lifetime Movie Network's drama 'Deadly Honeymoon', which gives me the opportunity to display a photo of Summer Glau in a bikini.

Willa Holland, who plays Kaitlin Cooper in The O.C.. While some of you may not know her yet, I'm sure you will once The CW begins to broadcast the second season of its superhero drama Arrow, inwhich Willa Holland plays Thea Queen, the little sister of Oliver Queen. Summer Glau has landed a recurring role as Isabel Rochev on Arrow, premiering on Wednesday, October 9 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.

It's not a surprise to find the connections between Summer Glau and actors from The O.C. primarilily among non sci-fi movies such as 'Deadly Honeymoon' or 'Inside the Box'. It shows that these movies are a good way for Summer Glau to expand her range and reach a new audience. There's a long way till Summer Glau becomes a mainstream actress but hopefully her day will come, the sooner, the better.

The choice of a picture of Summer Glau in a bikini in 'Deadly Honeymoon' is purely accidental. *cough*
