“My character might get drunk enough to [sing]. That might happen,” Bilson coyly told ET in July. “She’s not going to be belting out any country ballads, but she might have a tipsy tune in there somewhere.”
“It was kismet. We had sold our house in L.A. and [the show] shoots in Nashville. I was like, ‘We could go to Nashville for a while,’” Bilson recalled, adding that role came around “at the perfect time.” “It made sense to sort of get my feet wet, so to speak, because I don’t like working too much, because I don’t like to take too much time away from my daughter. So it was the perfect thing to get me get back into it. It worked out really nicely.”
Back in March, Bilson shared a sweet on-set photo with her O.C. co-star Chris Carmack, who plays openly gay singer-songwriter Will on Nashville. Though Bilson and Carmack were in the same scene for a brief moment, she admitted they didn’t get to share any more screen time before the end of the season.
Nashville airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
