The Rural Diaries author has actually spoken previously about the value of girl power on the precious show, consisting of in the relationship in between her and Sophia Bush‘s characters, Peyton and Brooke.

” The romance with all the young boys, those were enjoyable, those was essential, however Sophia and I had to defend our own relationship,” Burton said on a May 2020 “Chicks in the Workplace” podcast episode. “A great deal of individuals wanted to pit us versus each other. You understand, it’s like, ‘Oh, Hilarie will not do this, but Sophia will,’ and ‘She’s the pretty one,’ and ‘She’s the this one.’ There’s a lot contrast that, as a young adult, it’s hard to navigate. She and I now can look back at it and be like, ‘All those bastards. No, no, no. We’re the love story.’ The female relationships were important on that program.”
