Rachel Bilson, star of The CW’s “Hart of Dixie,” knows that you haven’t quite forgotten her past years-long TV role as Summer Roberts on the teen soap “The O.C.” — nor are you likely to ever forget it. And, she’s actually cool with that.
Bilson shares her fans’ love of Summer, she recently told MTV News: “She’s just so carefree,” the actress shared. “She just does not give a you-know-what — you know what I’m saying? I really respect that. She seems cool. She seems like someone you’d want to hang out with.”
Now, 10 years later, do Bilson’s former castmates — such as the newly engaged Adam Brody, who played her fast-talking beau Seth Cohen, or her onscreen BFF Marissa, Mischa Barton — still want to hang out with Summer? Well, apparently not in official reunion sense. Bilson said that while she thinks it would be “cool to do something,” fans shouldn’t count on a reunion. (As you might remember, Bilson posted her own 10-year throwback recently.)
According to Bilson, there are some cast holdouts. “I get it to a certain extent, but it’s like, come on, it’s been 10 years, and it was such a big thing in all of our lives,” she said. “It would be cool to pay homage to it in some way.”
Catch “Hart of Dixie” Monday nights on The CW and “The O.C.” on … DVD. (Sigh.)
