Fairytale Of New York Pogues/Kirsty MacColl
Despite their lavish lifestyles, and designer wardrobes we could all relate to teenagers Ryan, Melissa, Seth and Summer as they tried to find their way in the glamorous world of Orange County. But what have the cast been up to since filming wrapped?
Landing on our screens as Marrisa Cooper, Misha Barton may have been a fresh faced young star but her character was far more troubled. As a rich socialite going through a number of dramatic family issues, the rebellious teen had a history of substance and alcohol abuse. She was one of the core members of the cast until her shocking death in season three. Picture: PA
Misha Barton has gone onto become one of the most famous members of the cast, known for her string of celebrity pals and edgy fashion sense. However life soon began to imitate art, and much like her character Misha was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, possession of marijuana, and driving without a valid license! The 29-year-old actress has now overcome her wild ways and continues to act.
We all had a crush on Benjamin McKenzie in his role as Ryan Awtwood, a troubled teenager from Chino, California who is given a second shot at pursuing his dream when he gets adopted by the wealthy Cohen family. His dramatic love-story with Melissa kept us on the edge of our seats! Picture: PA
Not only has Benjamin McKenzie grown even MORE handsome since 'The O.C', the 36-year-old actor has had a thriving acting career since the show. Back in 2008 he starred alongside Al Pacino in '88 Minutes', before reemerging last year as James Gordon in hit television series 'Gotham'. Picture: PA
It's safe to say that Adam Brody's portrayal of Seth Cohen kickstarted our love for a hot geek and we completely fell for his boyish charm and wit. Seth's friendship with Ryan, who later became his adoptive brother, was central to the show and we loved watching their bromance. Picture: PA
Despite growing a lot more facial hair since 'The O.C' ended, Adam Brody hasn't managed to grow a big acting career despite a few small role in Hollywood rom-coms such as 'Baggage Claim' and 'Think Like A Man Too'. However, the 35-year-old actor's personal has been moving along swimmingly and he is now expecting a child with his wife and former 'Gossip Girl' star Leighton Meester. Picture: PA
Rachel Bilson deserves a round of applause for making a spoiled, rude, rich girl named Summer Roberts appear warm and endearing in spite of her sassy nature. As the stereotypical popular girl, she was worried her reputation would be tarnished by dating the geeky and socially awkward Seth Cohen but opposites attract, and they quickly became our favourite TV couple.

Rachel Bilson and Adam Brody continued their romance off-screen for a long while before splitting in 2006. Since then Rachel, 33, has found love with Hayden Christensen and together they have a six-month-old baby girl name Briar Rose. Before becoming a full-time mummy, Rachel had appeared in four seasons of 'Heart Of Dixie' from 2011, but it has since been cancelled. Picture: PA
We all love a bad boy and Cam Gigandet's portrayal of Kevin Volchok, a bad boy and rebellious competitive surfer, had us all weak at the knees. His casual relationship with Marissa definitely spiced things up! Picture: Rex
It's safe to say that Cam hasn't done too badly for himself having only starred in 15 episodes of the 'The O.C'. Since leaving the show, the Cam, 32, has starred alongside Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart as James in the 'Twilight Saga', and a string of other Hollywood blockbusters.
We were all biting our nails when we found out Ryan had a bad boy brother! Trey Atwood, played by Logan Marshall Green, had us gripped when he appeared fresh out of prison to ruffle some feathers in Ryan's new glamorous life in Orange County. Picture: rex
Since leaving 'The O.C' Logan Marshall Green has landed himself a number of small roles in film such as Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' and supernatural horror 'Devil'. The 38-year-old actor is happy married to his wife Diane Gaeta. Picture: PA
Anna Stern, played by Samaire Armstrong, almost got in the way of Seth and Summer's love story when she became close with him in season one. Although Anna and Seth shared a love of comic books, we are glad true love prevailed in the end! Picture: Rex
Samaire Armstorng bagged a role in 'Just My Luck' alongside Lindsay Lohan in 2006, before going on to land a starring role in her own film 'It's A Boy Girl Thing' that same year. Already having a taste for television dramas, she also appeared in the short-lived series 'Dirty Sexy Money' from 2007-2009. After overcoming a short stint in rehab in 2007, she gave birth to her first child Calin in 2012. Picture: PA
