One Tree Hill was a very successful show during its nine season run from 2003 to 2012, which of course was good news for the show’s stars. The main group of Tree Hill residents enjoyed a lengthy time in the spotlight thanks to the show’s popularity and many have gone on to continue their success in shows and movies. Others, however, have fallen by the wayside as new teen dramas have taken over, creating a new set of stars in the forefront. As the show got bigger, their paycheques got bigger and, after a few years, now is a great time to see if their One Tree Hill pay was the peak or just a launching point of celebrity level wealth.
12. Robert Buckley
Estimated Net Worth: $5 Million. Robert Buckley wasn’t even on One Tree Hill for its full run, only coming in as Clay Evans following the exit of Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton. Appearing in 57 episodes from seasons 7 to 9, the role of Clay is just one of many contributing to Buckley’s respectable net worth of $5 million. He also had a recurring role on Lipstick Jungle, American Heiress and unfortunately a starring role on the ill-fated 666 Park Avenue, which was cancelled after only one season, and his big role after the last season of One Tree Hill. Most notably he took on the role of Major Lilywhite in the series iZombie.
