Nathan and Lucas eventually find their love for each other and decide that they are now officially brothers. Later learning about Lucas' best friend Haley James, Nathan decides to use Haley to anger his brother, but eventually ends up falling in love and marrying her. Lucas had initially thought of Nathan as a jerk, partly due to the fact that he hadn't been accepted by the Ravens due to Nathan trying to sabotage him as a player.
He then began a relationship with co-star Sophia Bush but managed to keep that quiet, too.
For even those he has crossed in love hardly have a bad word to say about him.
Even one of his cast-mates on One Tree Hill, whose ex-wife hooked up with Lafferty, says: ‘James and I are friends.
So I’ll go out of my way to make them feel romanced,’ Lafferty confessed to the US magazine Portrait.
Indeed, just this week, in response to the publicity over his Leopardstown canoodling with Eve, Lafferty seemed somewhat upset that the relationship had been rumbled, tweeting about that awkward moment when ‘your personal life goes out into the public’.
If you have that in a relationship, you’ll get the most out of it.’ For the much younger Eve, the secretive charmer from California is her first big romance.
