Biography

Actor Chad Michael Murray began as a model in his late teens before successfully seguing to an acting career with breakout roles on a number of youth-targeted television series and in several hit films. The neophyte actor quickly established his niche as a cocky bad boy when he was cast as Tristan DuGrey on the first two seasons of the clever dramedy "Gilmore Girls" (The WB, 2000-06/The CW, 2006-07). Soon after, he refined the persona into that of Lucas Scott, the more introverted outsider he played for six seasons as one of the stars of "One Tree Hill" (The WB, 2003-06/The CW, 2006-2012). With prominent roles in a string of successful teen-targeted feature films that included "Freaky Friday" (2003), "A Cinderella Story" (2004) and "House of Wax" (2005), Murray secured himself a spot as one of film and TV's more sought after young leading men. After contract negotiations broke down with "One Tree Hill" producers in 2009, Murray was free to take on projects with other television networks and pursue non-acting creative endeavors like the graphic novel Everlast, which he created and wrote. Later, he was seen in such indie features as the harrowing true story of drug addiction and redemption "Renee" (2012), starring Kat Dennings. Bringing both an air of romance and mystery to his roles, Murray added a dimensionality to characters that might have otherwise remained uninspired archetypes in the hands of a lesser talent.
