Hilarie Burton Reveals Truth Behind 'One Tree Hill' Departure


In an interview with EW, the Peyton of 'One Tree Hill' said that every decision was made based on goodness and that she and Chad Michael Murray face it as grown-ups.

The dismissal of Peyton and Lucas from "One Tree Hill" after 6 years of running had set up a roar among fans of the show. But here to provide the truth as well as some insights regarding the reason behind their characters' exit is Peyton's depicter herself, Hilarie Burton.

In an exclusive interview with EW, Hilarie wanted to deliver the message that she would never say bad words about "One Tree Hill" and that the decision was based on "adults being good to each other and being kind". She elaborated, "I think everyone was kind of agreeable about the situation. There were a lot of really wonderful conversations. It wasn't a rash decision; a lot of thought, emotion, and kindness was put into it."

When asked about the truth, Hilarie responded "There really wasn't a lot of turmoil. It was a fabulous six-year run, which is how long my contract was for, and I feel really lucky to have been a part of the show. So when I hear that there's turmoil or negotiations based on money it kind of hurts my feelings, because it's not what's been going on at all."

In February this year, Hilarie had posted a video message where she was chocking up in tears in and said that she wished she has creative control over what was going on. Explaining her purpose in posting the video, she said that it was "to dispel the rumors that were being circulated. ...People even back then were blaming it on money, and [on me] being high maintenance... Those rumors were really hurtful."

Warning! The excerpts below may contain spoilers to the May 18 season finale where Peyton and Lucas take a final bow. Speaking of her last day on the set she said, "We wrapped together. We were the last two in the last scene, and we opened up a tab across the street for our crew to say thank you and cried a bunch." Additionally, Hilarie mentioned that she is open to re-appearance because the writers "didn't kill" Peyton or Lucas.

Hilarie is looking forward to new shows while working on a undisclosed webseries that will start shooting on Memorial Day.
