Adam Lawton: You have had the chance to be on a bunch of great shows, is there one that sticks out as a favorite?
Lee Norris: I don’t think I could choose just one. They all have been interesting and different enough to make it fun for me. I am still getting recognized for my character from “Boy Meets World” which was shot when I was 12 and I am almost 30 now. Its insane how many people still remember that character. My character Mouth from “One Tree Hill” has been a great time as well, but probably my favorite role to date is the part I played in “Zodiac.”

AL: Can you tell us what it was like working on “Zodiac”?
LN: It was my first major motion picture role, and I remember walking into the table read and being in the room with such a great cast that I had to pinch myself to make sure it was real. It was really fascinating to see everyone’s different styles and how they prepare for their roles. It was really great to see how prepared Robert Downey Jr. It was a blast.

AL: You mentioned your character Mouth from “One Tree Hill”. Since the show started eight years ago have you been allowed to provide input or direction to your character?
LN: No not really (laughs). Television is a very controlled medium and they are very protective over the characters. I think the writers have taken cues from me to help provide uniqueness to the character, but all the direction really comes from Mark Schwan, who is the producer/creator of the show

AL: What are the chances of another season of “One Tree Hill?”
LN: Things are still kind of up in the air, but personally I’m not too sure where they could take the series after this season. I think everything has been pretty well explored, but I wouldn’t totally rule it out.

AL: Do you have any upcoming projects?
LN: Right now due to my shooting schedule with “One Tree Hill” I am pretty tied up, and I don’t have a lot of time to go to auditions. However, if the show does end this season I am going to start submitting things and go from there.
