Shantel VanSanten Interview: What's Ahead on One Tree Hill?

at . Comments

Shantel VanSanten is relatively new to One Tree Hill.

She plays Quinn, a photographer that escaped to Tree Hill due to her declining marriage. With the character now divorced and cozying up to Clay, VanSanten spoke to TV Guide about what's ahead for her character. A few excerpts:

On Quinn and Clay's future: There are going to be a few road bumps coming up. We both know what's happened prior to each other... [and] having that bond and that friendship is something that is really important. It didn't start out like, "Hey we hooked up we should be in a relationship." It was like, "Hey we're friends and it grew into something." So I'm hoping it does [last}. He's my best friend forever, and it's awesome working with him.

Classic Quinn

On the future for the James sisters: We're reuniting some parts of the family - our mom and some of our brothers and sisters - we didn't necessarily know we had before. We have a really big family. My mom [played by Bess Armstrong] comes in town for a big visit, and Taylor obviously comes back. So there's a lot of family stuff going on.

I came in and added one layer to seeing a different side to who Haley is, and the way we interact as sisters. With Taylor coming in, that's a horse of a different color. Sometimes you have family that you have to love because they're family, but you don't always have to like the decisions that they make.

One Tree Hill Quotes

Happiness is not a destination. It is a mood, it is not permanent. It comes and goes and if people thought that way then maybe people would find happiness more often.

Julian

Remember tonight, for it is the beginning of always. A promise, like a reward for persisting through life so long alone. A belief in each other and the possibility of love. A decision to ignore simply rise above the pain in the past. A covenant, which at once binds two souls and yet severs prior ties. The celebration of the chance taken and the challenge that lies ahead. For two will always be stronger than one. Like a team braced against the tempests of the world. And love will always be the guiding force in our lives. For tonight is mere formality. Only an announcement to the world of feelings long held, promises made long ago in the sacred space in our hearts.
