‘One Tree Hill’s’ Male Stars Support Cast, Crew Accusing Creator Mark Schwahn of Sexual Harassment

The men of “One Tree Hill” have spoken out in support a day after cast and crew members wrote a joint letter accusing former showrunner Mark Schwahn of sexual harassment.

Chad Michael Murray, Bryan Greenberg, James Lafferty, and Austin Nichols are among the male cast members advocating on behalf of writer Audrey Wauchope — who posted on Twitter accusing Schwahn of sexual harassment — and the rest of the “One Tree Hill” team, who penned an open letter “to stand together in support.”

“The women of OTH have always been strong and incredible. 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,” Murray wrote on Twitter, while Robert Buckley said, “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.”

Schwahn’s representatives didn’t respond to Variety’s requests for comment about the allegations.

Part of the letter, signed by 19 cast and crew members, reads, “To use terminology that has become familiar as the systemic reality of sexual harassment and assault has come more and more to light, Mark Schwahn’s behavior over the duration of the filming of One Tree Hill was something of an “open secret.” Many of us were, to varying degrees, manipulated psychologically and emotionally. More than one of us is still in treatment for post-traumatic stress.”
