'The O.C.': Where Are They Now?
"The OC": Where Are They Now - Mischa Barton
Mischa Barton (Marissa Cooper)
Mischa Barton was born in foggy London but took "The O.C." by storm, playing troubled California girl Marissa Cooper. Her character was eventually killed off in a car accident.
Despite a real-life DUI arrest in 2007 and a stint at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
psych ward, she kept pushing her career forward.
This year, Barton will star in two horror films, notably "Resurrection," admitting to
TWELV magazine, "I literally became obsessed with that genre." Off-screen she sells her
upscale handbag line. Does she miss all the press?
Not at all: "I'm so relieved it's not how it was. … It was just over the top."
