Moira Kelly, who plays Karen Roe, visits the One Tree Hill Podcast on May 19 to talk about her guest stint on the One Tree Hill season six finale and she talked about returning to Wilmington and the One Tree Hill set. She also shared her thoughts on the recent news that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton would not be returning to One Tree Hill for the seventh season.
Moira Kelly’s comments on Hilarie Burton not returning next season:
“Hilarie and I were talking about how it has to end at some point. When you are performer you get into your characters and you love them and you work them and you grow with them, but at some point it all has to come to an end. The beauty is to reflect back on where that character began. When I think of the character of Peyton, the first images are so gothic. I told Hilarie, you had really curly blonde hair and you were this tough chick when the show started. I said Hilarie think about how that character developed – that is a body of work. And so you take that with you. Leaving is never easy, but it is also very exciting. Hilarie has so much more going on and she is going to be fine. She has a great sensibility for the business. She is going to do really well. She is a very smart young actress.”.”
