Murray, however, wanted to portray Lucas due to a connection he felt with the character.

He felt that he could inhabit the character as the two share several similarities.

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.

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.

The producers were originally unsure as to who Murray would play.

Series creator Mark Schwahn wanted him to play the character of Nathan Scott since Murray had played a bad guy several times before, he felt it was only natural to give him this role.

After some time Nathan is rescued by Chris Keller, Dan and Julian.
