Austin Nichols Pushes for "Greatest Happy Ending Ever" on One Tree Hill

at . Comments

Austin Nichols is enjoying his first season as a regular on One Tree Hill. He stars as Julian Baker on The CW hit.

As the real-life boyfriend of co-star Sophia Bush, the actor has a unique perspective on the show. He shared it in a recent interview, going into detail about his status and his hopes for Julian's future...

On full-time cast member status: “It’s great. It’s exciting. It’s different from being a guest. You feel more responsible for the show as a whole, for the final in product, as a regular. But it’s been fun. As far as I can tell, this season there has been really great material and better than any season before it, so it’s been really cool.”

On his return: “When [creator Mark Schwahn] asked me to come back as a series regular I told him I only would if we could make a really powerful love story for Brooke and Julian. I wanted him to give them the greatest love story. I mentioned The Notebook to him. I wanted him to give them that kind of love and story."

On hopes for Brooke and Julian: "I want them to have the greatest happy ending ever."
