When we started off the show all the kids were unknowns, and they very quickly became famous. We were shooting a scene during Season One on a golf course, and all these kids jumped out of a bush dressed like Seth Cohen and ambushed Adam. And there were all these kids who were like, “I’m Seth! That’s me! People call me Seth in school.” And I think Adam was like, Oh my god, we’ve inadvertently given voice to a whole strain of teenager who, by the time they get to college will be fine, but in high school it will just be brutal for them. —Josh Schwartz (http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/08/05/remembering-the-o-c-creator-josh-schwartz-on-the-show-s-10th-anniversary.html)
