Nathan overcomes all of his problems throughout the series and vows to never raise his child the way Dan raised him.
Nathan maintains a strong bond with his mother, who was at one point Jamie's nanny.
Portrayed by James Lafferty since the pilot, Nathan Royal Scott was a basketball player for the Charlotte Bobcats, husband of Haley James Scott and the father of James Lucas Scott and Lydia Bob Scott.
Portrayed by Hilarie Burton from the pilot until the season six finale, Peyton Elizabeth Sawyer, was introduced in the first season as Nathan Scott's on-and-off girlfriend.
She has a huge love for music and for art, and frequently sketches certain events in her life, or feelings she cannot bring herself to tell anybody about.
One Tree Hill is an American television series created by Mark Schwahn for The WB in 2003.
After its third season, The WB and UPN merged to form The CW, which then became the broadcaster for the show in the United States.
After Peyton temporarily turned down his proposal because she told him she was not ready, he begins dating his book editor Lindsay and gets engaged.
Peyton returns to Tree Hill to get him back and after Lindsay realizes Lucas still loves Peyton she leaves him at the altar.
Schwahn served as executive producer while also writing and directing for the show, including the premieres and finales of all seasons.
The show began with nine main characters in its first season.
Murray, however, wanted to portray Lucas due to a connection he felt with the character.
