Actress played Marissa Cooper in hit series

Mischa Barton still can’t get away from The OC over a decade after it first aired.

The actress admits it bothers her that she’s mainly remembered for her role as Marissa Cooper in the popular drama series, which ran from 2003 to 2007.

Yes [it annoys me], but what are you gonna do?’ says Mischa, 28.

There’s just so much more to the work I’ve done.’

Mischa – who left the show when her character was killed off at the end of the third season – is still proud to have been a part of it though.

It makes me really happy that the show had such a cultural impact,’ the blonde star tells TV Extra.

It made me internationally famous – there’s literally nowhere in the world I can go where people haven’t seen it.’
