He immediately ingratiates himself in the community and gains the attention of a few local girls.One of those girls is Brooke Davis, played by Bush, the captain of the cheerleading squad and the resident wild child.I woke up one day and said, 'This is the woman I want to spend the rest of my days with.'” After just a year of dating, Murray decided he wanted to pop the question to Bush in 2004 while he was on location in Australia shooting the horror film House of Wax.In an MTV special at that time, the actor was seen calling his dad and telling him he was going to ask Sophia to marry him.The couple broke up in 2012 after dating on-and-off for about six years.And yes, if that timeline sounds a little strange, especially given her relationship with Lafferty, don't stress. After Murray moved on from Bush, he met Kenzie Dalton, who went on to become his long-time love and was an extra in the show.The show follows five high-school friends who try to navigate love, friendships and growing up in Tree Hill, North Carolina.Murray plays the brooding and sensitive Lucas Scott, who comes to Tree Hill to live with his dad and half-brother Nathan Scott (James Lafferty).
What happened to this celebrity pairing everyone rooted for?
Murray once described to MTV, “Sophia is my cool breeze.
She's wonderful, she's kind, she's intelligent – and she makes me happy.
Lucas, however, realized he still had feelings for Brooke at the end of season 2, and by season 3, they gave it another go.
As Murray and Bush got closer working together on the series, a real-life love sprung up between them as well, and the two started dating pretty soon after the show began.
