Sophia Anna Bush (born July 8, 1982 in Pasadena, California) is an American actress and director.
She's perhaps best known for playing Brooke Davis on The WB/The CW's One Tree Hill for all nine of its seasons on the air, as well as Det. Erin Lindsay in Dick Wolf's Chicago franchise on NBC. She also starred in the 2006 film John Tucker Must Die and the 2007 remake of The Hitcher.
Bush is also one of the many, many part-owners of Angel City FC, a Los Angeles-based team set to start play in the National Women's Soccer League in 2022.

Sophia Bush provides examples of the following tropes:
- Gender Flip: She does not have the Jennifer Jason Leigh role in The Remake of The Hitcher. Zachary Kingston fills that spot.
- Romance on the Set: She was married to One Tree Hill love interest Chad Michael Murray for a year, and then went on to date their fellow co-stars James Lafferty and Austin Nichols.
- What Could Have Been: She was originally cast as Kate Brewster in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, but was replaced by Claire Danes after a week into shooting.
