Sophia Bush is best known for her role as Brooke Davis on the hit television series One Tree Hill, which aired from 2003 to 2012. Since the show ended, Bush has continued to work in Hollywood, both in front of and behind the camera.
After One Tree Hill, Bush landed a recurring role on the FX series American Horror Story: Cult in 2017. She also starred in the NBC series Chicago P.D. from 2014 to 2017, playing Detective Erin Lindsay. Bush left the show in 2017 after four seasons, citing “abusive behavior” on set as the reason for her departure.
