What are they up to now? One Tree Hill: Barbara Alyn Woods

We are 12 days away from Inside OTH: A cast and crew reunion and convention put on by some members of the producing team of our beloved show, One Tree Hill.

Many of the cast were members of our community for 9 years. They were our neighbors, our friends. So what have they been up to since the show went off the air in 2012?  Let’s find out.


Barbara Alyn Woods played Deb Scott, the mother of Nathan Scott and wife of the dubious Dan Scott. Later in the series she became known as Nanny Deb to Nathan and Haley’s son Jamie, because God forbid you call her Grandma!

So what is she up to now?  What is she not up to!  “I am multi-tasking everyday,” says Barbara.  She’s still in the acting scene, but not just for herself. Both of her daughters also caught the acting bug. You may have seen her daughter Alyvia in the Sandler, Barrymore flick Blended or in Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors playing young Dolly Parton.


“I am juggling my career with my daughters’ full- time careers,” says Barbara. “I’m currently jumping from Atlanta to Puerto Rico to New York…Never a dull day.”

Quite a different lifestyle then when she was on One Tree Hill, having the luxury of staying in one place for a bit. So, what does Barbara miss most about Wilmington?

“What do I miss most about Wilmy? What don’t I miss? I miss the white beaches, the warm water, the days my family spent in Wrightsville Beach were absolutely the best ever. I miss MY FRIENDS!!!”


You would think that would be enough, but oh no! Wait, there’s more!

“I miss the people in general. Landfall (a community near Wrightsville Beach), Halloweens. Nobody does it better.  The studio (EUE/Screen Gems), the boat parade (Flotilla), Azalea Festival!”Wilmington_Azalea_Festival-wm

And of course she names One Tree Hill. She says the memories will be in her heart forever.

Barbara Alyn Woods won’t have to wait much longer, and neither will you! Inside OTH is less than two weeks away!
