GL's Ex-Michelle, Joie Lenz (1998-2000)

Soap Opera Digest: How do you like filming in Wilmington, NC?

Bethany Joy/Lenz: I love it. It’s so beautiful. I love being in a small town. The people are so laid back and friendly. We actually took over DAWSON’S [CREEK] lot.Digest: Were you a CREEK fan?
Lenz: No, I never really watched it. They do rerun episodes, so it’s kind of fun to tune in every once in awhile and see, like, “Oh, we were there yesterday.”

Digest: What do you think of ONE TREE HILL?
Lenz: I love it. Everybody knows someone like these characters.Digest: Who is the most down-to-earth in your cast?
Lenz: Moira [Kelly, Karen], of course. You can’t get more down-to-earth than Moira Kelly. You couldn’t get further away from Hollywood than her. She is so real and an extremely smart lady.Digest: What are your plans for the rest of the day?
Lenz: I am going to finish straightening up my place because I haven’t had time to move in yet. I have suitcases on the living room floor. Last night, during [NBC’s] Must-See TV, I got to the point where I can actually see my floor.
