'One Tree Hill' actors support female co-stars

One Tree Hill Mark Schwahn One Tree Hill Stars Support Writer After She Accuses Creator of Sexual Abuse

Following One Tree Hill, which ran from 2003 to 2012, Lafferty would go on to direct an episode of the E! show The Royals, which was also created by Schwahn. Wauchope did not name the showrunner but said that she was a staff writer on two shows and that "the men of Cougartown are aces". Allegedly, the showrunner did a myriad of things that made the girls feel uncomfortable and unsafe in their own workplace, including unwelcomed touching and improper advances. They confirmed Audrey's account of Mark's behaviour while they worked on the show, which was "something of an 'open secret'".

"One Tree Hill" stars like James Lafferty and Lee Norris have lent their support to the show's female cast and crew members like Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton and Bethany Joy Lenz, who penned an open letter accusing showrunner Mark Schwahn of sexual misconduct.

In an unprecedented show of unity on a television series or movie, almost all of the show's core cast-as well as some crew members-have shown support for the female cast and crew after the letter was published. Many of us were told, during filming, that coming forward to talk about this culture would result in our show being canceled and hundreds of lovely, qualified, hard-working, and talented people losing their jobs.

"All of the female cast members of One Tree Hill have chosen this forum to stand together in support of Audrey Wauchope and one another".

They wrote, "Many of us were, to varying degrees, manipulated psychologically and emotionally". Today they've made us all even more proud by standing as a beacon of what is right, and continuing to lead & change the atmosphere of society.

One of the CW's most successful showrunners has been called out by the cast and writers of one of his biggest hits on November 11. Many of us were spoken to in ways that ran the spectrum from deeply upsetting, to traumatising, to downright illegal. Often men would help out by sitting next to him, thus protecting the women", Wauchope tweeted before adding, "he'd just squeeze his disgusting body in between us and put his arms around us, grinning. She described unwanted touching, being shown naked photographs of a woman the showrunner was dating, and being told she was hired on the basis of her looks.

Schwahn is now the showrunner on E!'s "The Royals", with a spokesperson for the network saying in a statement: "We are monitoring the information carefully".

The letter, which ends with a call for change, is signed by 18 cast and crew members, including Kramer.

E! issued a statement which read, "We are monitoring the information carefully".

Actor Robert Buckley, who played Clay Evans, wrote: "To the women of OTH that have come forward and bravely used their voices, I want you to know I believe you, I respect you and I support you".
