With her role as Brook Davis in the drama series One Tree Hill, which ran from 2003 to 2012, she conquered the hearts of TV viewers, but who would have thought back then that Sophia Bush only wanted to play volleyball. In fact, her high school at the time made it compulsory to attend a play she didn’t like, she went on to play in the play and became addicted to it for life.
After that, Sophia left volleyball for a career in the arts, and apparently she chose the right path. She has been active since 2001 and has entertained a diverse audience in film and television.

After forming the cast for Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Sophia Bush lost her role as Kate Brewster to Claire Danes after filming for a week. However, she lost the role, not because of her lack of talent, but because she was too young to handle it.

She then began working with top brands and appeared on the covers of major magazines such as Entertainment Weekly, Lucky, Maxim, Glamour, InStyle, and Zooey Magazine.

Between her One Tree Hill success, Sophia Bush starred in the 2006 20th Century Fox comedy John Tucker Must Die, which received rave reviews. The supernatural thriller Stay Alive was another blockbuster, which she shot the same year alongside Jon Foster, Frankie Muniz, and Adam Goldberg. In 2007 she starred in the remake of the classic horror movie The Hitcher and in 2008 she honored the cast of The Narrows as Kathy Popovich.
After starring in the February 2011 Romcom movie Chalet Girl, she joined the CBS sitcom partners in 2012; the series had only aired in six episodes before it was canceled.

Her name is also the source of several awards, some of which she has won both as an actress and as part of a group. No wonder she has an estimated net worth of $9 million.
Boyfriend Or Husband – Chad Michael Murray
Sophia Bush has been around the relationship front a lot, but the one that has been the focus of attention is her smoldering hot romance with her One Tree Hill co-star Chad Michael Murray. The attraction they shared on set took them out into the real world and they got engaged in May 2004, got married on April 16, 2005, in Santa Monica, California, but hey, the Hollywood syndrome kicked in earlier than we expected. Only five months after their wedding, Bush and Murray revealed that they were separated.
Bush filed papers for the annulment of their union in February 2006, citing fraud. Instead, she divorced him and the petition was rejected. To this day she regrets ever having got involved with Chad and describes them as two stupid children who should never have fallen in love in the first place.
Apart from Chad, Sophia Bush had romantic entanglements with the actors James Lafferty and Austin Nichols. She was also involved with Dan Fredinburg, a program manager at Google.
