Last week celebrating the 10-year anniversary of The O.C. and fans are wanting a reunion of the cast. However, Mischa Barton who played Marissa Cooper for three years, is not so thrilled about that idea.
The 27-year old told US Weekly, “You know — never say never,” before adding, “But, I think things have to feel right, and it doesn’t feel right. You can’t say that you feel one way or another about things, but before The O.C. I was on track to do some great films, as well, and one thing happens, and then I got this mega stardom all from this show. It is what it is, but I’m not looking to get sucked back into the limelight of it.”
Despite the fact that Barton’s character was killed off in season 3, creator Josh Schwartz told TVGuide.com that producers wanted to reunite the cast for the 10-year anniversary, “but in order to do that we wanted everybody to participate and to want to participate.” Mischa Barton also admits she has not kept in touch with her former castmates, “I don’t,” she told the magazine. “I mean, I run into people every once in a while, but I’m doing my own thing. I work a lot, so I feel like I’m never around in L.A. and I know that Ben [McKenzie] and Rachel [Bilson] work on shows here.”
