Audiences are familiar with Hilarie Burton from her work as one of MTV's hottest VJs. Today, Burton plays Peyton Sawyer, the fiercely independent, beautiful high school student on The WB's hit drama "One Tree Hill." With a presence in network and cable TV, radio and soon, the big screen, she is one of the hottest young stars of today.
Born and raised in Loudoun County, Virginia, with her three brothers, Burton developed a passion for acting early in life. Shortly after moving to New York to pursue her dream, she landed the coveted job of VJ at MTV.
As a host of "TRL," MTV's wildly popular request show, and various MTV specials, Burton interviews the most talked-about people in entertainment, from Angelina Jolie to Ben Affleck. You can also catch her talking to the hottest names in music on her popular syndicated college radio show "W.O.B.U."
Next year, Burton will make her feature film debut in, "Our Very Own," a comedy/drama set in Nashville, Tennesse, in the 1970s.
Burton will continue to host "TRL" and "MTV's Hits," traveling back and forth between New York and Wilmington, North Carolina, where "One Tree Hill" is being shot.
