Rachel Bilson has admitted she misses working on US TV drama series ‘The O.C.’ and wishes she saw more of her former co-stars.
The 28-year-old actress – who rose to fame playing Summer Roberts in the American teen drama series -had a “phenomenal” time working on the show, which ran for four seasons until February 2007, and misses working with her co-stars Mischa Barton, Adam Brody and Benjamin McKenzie.
She said: “I do miss Summer terribly. ‘The O.C.’ was the most phenomenal time. I saw Mischa at Cannes, but I honestly miss everyone from the show.”
The actress believes she has been able to avoid Hollywood trouble because she was 21 when she first appeared in the show – whereas her co-star Mischa was just a teenager.
She explained: “I do fall out of cars, but not because I am drunk, but because I am clumsy. I think the girls who come to fame younger fall into all that partying, but I did it before I became famous. I mean I was 21 when ‘The OC’ started, Mischa was 16. I can’t imagine dealing with that kind of success at that age. My life may have been very different if I had started out that young.”
