James Lafferty has "never got used" to fame.

The 38-year-old actor - who tied the knot with soap opera actress Alexandra Park in 2022 after seven years of dating - became known around the world when he took on the role of Nathan Scott in the teen drama series 'One Tree Hill' almost two decades ago but admitted that the attention is still "surreal" to himself and those around him.

He told E! News: "It's surreal for everybody involved for me included. I never get used to but in the best way."

The 'Small Town Crime' star - who appeared alongside Chad Michael Murray in the series - recently got together with fellow co-stars Bryan Greenberg, Stephen Colletti, Paul Johannson, Craig Sheffer for a charity basketball game and raised over $100,000 for the V Foundation for Cancer and he noted it was such "gift" to be able to reunite with some of his former castmates for the event.

He said: "It feels great to play a small part in supporting the [foundation's] progress.

"It means the world for us to be drawn back together. It means the world for us to be able to interact personally with the best fans in the world, and to be able to do it all for a good cause.

"Just being back in this gym in particular where we actually shot the show and being with all the guys who originally played on the Ravens basketball team, it's surreal and it's wonderful.

"Some of these guys, I haven't seen for a very long time. Some of them I have. But to have all of us together again, it's incredible. It's a gift."
