Cam Gigandet Slams ‘The O.C.’ Castmates, Calls Them ‘Miserable’
If there’s ever a reunion special for ‘The O.C.,’ it’s pretty safe to say that you can count Cam Gigandet out.
Gigandet, who joined the show in Season 3 as the character Kevin Volchok, didn’t mince words in a recent interview with ELLE about his experiences on the show.
“I learned a lot,” he replied when asked about his memories about the show. But then he adds, “The things that I remember now — none of them are good. It was only the third or fourth season. Those kids were f—– miserable. They were just — they would not remember their lines on purpose. They were young. That said, I don’t talk to anyone I’ve ever worked with.”
In regards to the show’s star, Ben McKenzie, Gigandet recalled, “Ben McKenzie was kind of mean to me. I hadn’t done anything at that point and he was a little bit of an ass. But I love him. I think he’s a great actor and I love ‘Southland.’”
Gigandet’s character was brought in as a love interest for Mischa Barton’s character, Marissa Cooper, in Season 3, and had even harsher words for her.
“Mischa? I didn’t really… Was she there? I don’t even have memories of her,” he told the site.
‘The O.C.’ aired from 2003 to 2007 for four seasons and was an instant hit for the FOX television network when it first premiered. The show also co-starred Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson.
