She gave her all to the numerous roles she portrayed in each of these movies.

Burton resided in North Carolina throughout her time on One Tree Hill, where the program was filmed. Burton and Morgan began dating in 2009 after meeting on a blind date set up by Jensen Ackles and Danneel, their former co-stars. On March 14, 2010, the couple gave birth to their first child, a son named Augustus. In 2018, they had a girl. Their marriage occurred on October 5, 2019. The casts of One Tree Hill and Supernatural were in large numbers during their weddings.

On a 100-acre working farm in the Hudson Valley with ducks, cows, chickens, donkeys, alpacas, and an emu, Burton and Morgan have made their home in Rhinebeck, New York.

Early Life

Hilarie Burton was born in Sterling, Virginia, on July 1, 1982. Bill Burton, a US Army veteran, and a real estate agent, Lisa Burton, welcomed Hilarie into the world. She is one of 3 siblings. She attended Park View High School before continuing to education at New York as well as Fathom University, where she held a variety of positions over several years. For example, in her sophomore year, she served as the student council’s treasurer; in her junior year, she served as vice president; in her senior year, she was elected president; and in her final year, she was crowned homecoming queen.


As a VJ for MTV’s Total Request Live, Hilarie received her 1st important break (TRL). Makers opted to give her an enduring position instead of just having her as a guest observer for one session. Later, she spoke at MTV’s Iced Out New Year’s Eve and the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards. In 2002 with the WB drama Dawson’s Creek, Burton made her television debut.

Burton was selected to play Peyton Sawyer, an independent cheerleader, and artist, in the WB drama series One Tree Hill in April 2003. The first episode of the series premiered on September 23, 2003, and it rapidly became the network’s most-watched program of the year. It was regarded as Burton’s breakout performance and her most well-known role. For her role in the series, Burton appeared on the covers of Maxim, American Cheerleader Magazine, and People.

She received three nominations for Teen Choice Awards for her well-liked performance. Burton chose not to return for the seventh season of the program, The CW stated in May 2009, dispelling claims that she left due to compensation issues.  One Tree Hill increased the public’s awareness of Burton. In May 2007, she appeared at position 77 on Maxim’s “Hot 100 List of 2007.” In November 2006, she and her One Tree Hill co-stars Danneel Harris and Sophia Bush also appeared on the cover of Maxim. Burton previously scored #2 on Femme Fatales’ “The 50 S*xiest Women of 2005” and #12 on Much Music’s “20 Hottest Women of 2003.”

The well-received 2005 film “Our Very Own”, which starred Cheryl Hines, and Allison Janney and followed five teenagers from a small hamlet who dream of a better life, marked Burton’s feature film debut. At the time, Hilarie was still a part of the One Tree Hill cast. Hilarie and her co-stars received the coveted Sarasota Film Festival’s “Outstanding Ensemble Acting” award. Hilarie appeared in the 2007 Lifetime drama Normal Adolescent Behavior, which featured a group of friends engaged in six polyfidelity relationships. The same year, Hilarie co-starred in the supernatural horror film Solstice with Elisabeth Harnois and Amanda Seyfried. Meg Mortimer, James Burton, Nick Gray, Kelly Tenney, and Burton created their own production company.

In the 2008 “The Secret Life of Bees” and the “thriller The List”, both from Fox Searchlight Pictures, Burton played the late mother of Dakota Fanning’s character. Following that, Burton starred alongside Hilary Duff and Val Kilmer in Bloodworth, a William Gay adaptation of the book Provinces of Night. After she left One Tree Hill, the movie only had a little amount of distribution. It had its world premiere at the 2010 Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

Burton landed a recurring role in the second season of the USA Network crime drama series White Collar as insurance investigator Sara Ellis. For the third season in 2011, she was elevated to series regular status; however, for the fourth season, she was relegated to the recurring cast.  In 2012, Burton had a cameo appearance on the ABC police comedy-drama Castle as a reality television star suspect of murder. The next part came in the final three episodes of the ABC medical program Grey’s Anatomy’s ninth season in 2013, playing Dr. Lauren Boswell. The short-lived CBS drama Hostages featured Burton extensively in the fall of that year.

Tyler Hilton, Burton’s One Tree Hill co-star, rejoined for a recurring role on the CBS science fiction series Extant in 2015. Burton portrayed the DEA agent love interest of Martin Riggs, the show’s protagonist, from the 7th episode of the 1st season in 2016 to the 3rd episode of the 2nd season in 2017. Burton came forward in November 2017 and said that One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn had also harassed her. This was in reaction to claims that Schwahn had molested several of the females.

Burton appeared alongside her real-life husband, actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Negan, in the tenth season of The Walking Dead as Lucille, Negan’s wife.

Burton released The Rural Diaries: Love, Livestock, and Big Life Lessons Down on Mischief Farm, her debut nonfiction book, on May 5, 2020. With his One Tree Hill co-stars Sophia Bush and Bethany Joy Lenz, Burton launched the Drama Queens podcast in 2021.
