Murray’s face also appeared on a big screen. Even though none of his roles were as big and successful as in Freaky Friday and A Cinderella Story, his fans still enjoyed seeing his new work. The actor’s latest movie is an upcoming action thriller Survive the Night in which he starred alongside Bruce Willis.

Murray’s personal life is just as interesting as his on-screen one. In 2005, he married Sophia Bush but 5 months later, the pair announced their separation. Soon after, Chad started romancing another One Tree Hill actress, Kenzie Dalton. The couple dated for ages and was engaged for 7 years but never tied the knot.

Known for being able to quickly move on, Murray stared dating his Chosen co-star Sarah Roemer. Sarah turned out to be just the right fit for Chad and the couple married a year after their romance had started. Chad Michael Murray and his wife have been happily married for 5 years now and have 2 children together.

So there you have it, here’s all we know about One Tree Hill’s main cast. We hope that their career will continue thriving and we’ll get to see more of the handsome faces we used to love watching on one of our favorite drama series.
