Fans of “The OC” might be disheartened to find out that one of the well-loved series’ key characters isn’t looking forward for a remake.
In a recent interview with HuffPost Live , Leighton Meester’s husband explained why the idea of “The OC” reunion did not fancy him.
“It was a wonderful time, but I’m significantly older,” he said.
“I mean, maybe it’s the equivalent of, like, ‘Do you miss being back in college?’ – which I never went to, but there are fun things about it.
But that character? No.
That was a character from 2004, and it’s very much of that time.
My interests don’t lie there at all anymore.” Leighton Meester’s husband also admits that his mannerisms still remind other people of Seth Cohen.
“Like it or not, I’ve been accused of playing him ever since,” he admitted.
“What can I say? My mannerisms are my mannerisms.
I’m not gonna run from myself.” While the 34-year-old does not want a “The OC” reunion, it does not mean that he isn’t proud to be a part of the show which aired from 2003 to 2007.
“It’s funny, because I do so many things, and they mean something to me, and maybe they mean something to a few people.
And this is like a story that I was a part of that I sort of share with a certain generation, and, in that way, it’s an honor.
It’s something I’m proud of,” he gushed.
He says it does not bother him if people will always see Seth Cohen in him.
He understands that there’s a tendency for celebrities to be forever linked to the characters which made them famous.
“It doesn’t bother me.
I’m proud of the legacy, [but] it gets boring, that’s all.
I’ve exhausted it, the conversations about it, in my mind.
Forgive me for comparing myself in any way – and I’m not – but Harrison Ford, I understand why he would be crotchety talking about ‘Star Wars.’ ‘Star Wars’ is great, but he’s been talking about it for 20, 30 years,” he finally said.
