It's hard to believe it's been 15 years since fans first fell in love with Haley James Scott on One Tree Hill. The perpetual nice-girl-next-door, Scott easily charmed her way into audience's hearts — as did the actress who brought the character to life, Bethany Joy Lenz (or "Joy," as she goes by).

Suffice it to say, the real reasons you don't hear much about the talented star might just make you like her even more. Keep reading to learn about Lenz's life and career since One Tree Hill wrapped.
