Paul Johansson played the heartless father of both Lucas and Nathan. We learn he got both of their mothers pregnant in high school but chose to only have a relationship with Nathan and his mother. Hardly new to acting, Johansson had no problem finding work after his character was killed off One Tree Hill.

Johansson went on to make appearances on several television shows including Mad Men, Bones, and Once Upon A Time. He also had leading roles in several Lifetime television movies. Most recently he had a recurring role on the show Van Helsing and appeared in an episode of NCIS. These days he spends most of his time working the convention scene and being a dad.

Since One Tree Hill ended, Norris has gone back to his roots. He started out as a child actor on Boy Meets World and recently resurrected his character, Stuart Minkus, on the reboot, Girl Meets World.

Then known as Danneel Harris, Danneel Ackles played bad-girl Rachel Gatina who was introduced in season three. She's best known for playing Vanessa in the films Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay and A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas.

Craig Sheffer played Keith Scott, Dan's older brother, and Lucas's father-figure. His character was a series regular for the first three seasons until Keith was murdered by his brother Dan. Sheffer appeared on the show several times after that in flashbacks and as a spirit.

After leaving One Tree Hill, Sheffer's acting credits slowed down. He revealed in a 2020 interview that he left Los Angeles to take care of family members who were both ill at the time.

To tell you the truth, it was as much of a practical and personal decision as anything else. My mother and brother were both very sick, and I left Los Angeles for almost eight years and took care of them. They both now sadly passed away.

Unfortunately, when Sheffer made his way back into acting, many of the projects he was cast in were shut down due to Covid. He last starred in the 2019 horror film, Widow's Point.

Bevin Prince (Bevin Mirskey)

When Bevin Prince first stepped foot onto the set of One Tree Hill, it was as an extra. Ultimately, she was given some lines and went on to appear in over 30 episodes. Her character was on the cheerleading squad with Peyton and Brooke, and dated Skills on and off throughout the series.

While Prince made appearances in several television shows after the end of One Tree Hill, it seems she has left acting behind for good. Looking at her social media it seems she is partners with SoulCycle, filming classes for their streaming service. She also founded her own fitness company, Recess by Bevin Prince, which offers cycling classes. Additionally, Prince hosts the Be My Neighbor Podcast.
