'One Tree Hill': Austin Nichols takes to the director's chair, reflects on final week of filming

When Zap2it visited the "One Tree Hill" set in September, Austin Nichols was working his final day as director on this week's episode -- an important one for fans not only because it marks the midpoint of the last season, but also because of the return of Chad Michael Murray's character, Lucas.We watched from behind the monitor as Nichols juggled the challenges of shooting an emotional airport scene with countless extras -- not to mention the added issue of having two young babies on set to play Lydia Scott. But Austin never missed a beat, and took time out to welcome the press to the set and fill us in on the day's scenes, which, for a busy director, is more rare than you might imagine. Nichols seemed at ease with cast and crew, even shooting in an unfamiliar location.In fact, the next day, when we reconvened in Nathan and Haley's "house" on the stages,... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/02/one-tree-hill-austin-nichols-takes-to-the-directors-chair-reflects-on-final-week-of-filming.html

In an absent-minded moment, the ever-reliable Julian did the unthinkable and left his son, Davis, in the car on a hot day. While the baby survived a situation that easily could turned been fatal, Julian and Brooke (Sophia Bush) were beyond rattled by the incident.Nichols hasn't yet watched the scenes that blew so many of us out of the water (and put Twitter into a tailspin). "I haven't seen it yet!" he tells Zap2it. "I'm unemployed and looking for work, so I've been reading so many scripts. I've just been fully immersed in that. I'll look at the scenes someday."It's hard to imagine that Nichols wouldn't be clamoring to watch the scenes, which are undoubtedly his best work on "One Tree Hill," if not in... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/02/one-tree-hills-austin-nichols-draws-on-real-frustration-for-a-heartbreaking-performance.html
