Sophia Bush

One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush still uses the skills she learned from English teacher Peter Goss to succeed as an actress. “He taught me to read between the lines, to see the hidden messages, and to live the stories on the pages,” says Sophia.

“The way he taught me to break down a novel is the way I break down scripts, today.”
