Bethany Joy Galeotti

Actress and musician Bethany Joy Galeotti returns for a seventh season as Haley James Scott, wife of Nathan Scott (James Lafferty), mother of Jamie (Jackson Brundage), and recording artist on the hit drama One Tree Hill.

Galeotti has been working as an actress on the stage and screen since her early childhood in Texas. She later moved to New Jersey, where she began vocal training with the Director of the Brooklyn College of Opera, Richard Barrett, and continued appearing in various pilots, commercials and films and performing regional theater until she was eventually cast as a series regular on The Guiding Light. Galeotti (then Lenz) remained on the soap for two years, gaining rave reviews from viewers and critics alike. During this time she had the honor of playing Mary Tyler Moore's daughter Rose in the TV movie Mary and Rhoda. After leaving The Guiding Light, she moved out west, where she was directed by Garry Marshall in Happy Days: the Musical (playing Pinky Tuscadero; musical directors Carole King and Paul Williams) and by Arthur Allan Seidleman in a staged reading of a musical version of The Outsiders. Soon after moving to Los Angeles, she was cast in One Tree Hill.

Galeotti is now a resident of Wilmington, North Carolina, where she films One Tree Hill. She lives the rest of the year with her husband and family in Washington state, where they own a restaurant called, appropriately, Galeotti's. She is also one-half of the band Everly, founded with her friend Amber Sweeney. Everly is expected to release their album in 2010.
