Metcalfe’s leading ladies bonded onscreen off, no love quadrangle necessary. Sophia Bush raved to Movieweb about the friendship she formed with co-stars Brittany Snow, Ashanti and Arielle Kebbel On the Vancouver set. 

The woman said, “And these girls… I couldn’t make it through a whole month without talking with them.” One Tree Hill Star, who played Beth Tucker, an animal lover, and John Tucker Girlfriend No. 3. And we were all able to pull each other through the toughest times, no matter how amazing or not so great. When one of us had a problem at 4 am, we were able to call each other. We would all eventually end up staying in each others’ beds. It was like slumber party, but it was also sleep-away camp.

She recalled one night, toward the end of filming, when they were all hanging out in Snow’s room, just because. 

Bush stated, “Brittany, me and Arielle were sitting on the sofa and had ordered food. We’re eating and writing, Arielle is over in the armchair, Arielle’s writing, she’s creating a package and Ashanti’s at the desk, she has her headphones on, and she’s busy working on her song.” And we were jamming, and it was at the point that we didn’t want to talk. This is how I feel with my best friend girlfriends and it is incredible.
