Despite their eventual breakup, the memories of Barton and Knapp's time together, sparked by that fateful meeting, likely remained special to both of them. 

Did The Actress Date Ben McKenzie?

During her time on "The O.C.", Mischa had a secret relationship with co-star Ben McKenzie. In a surprising revelation on the "Call Her Daddy" podcast, the actress shared that they were dating from the start of filming. He was 25 while she was only 17 years old at the time.

It was Barton's first-ever relationship, so she admitted to feeling unsure and inexperienced. Things became more complicated when the show's producers approached her parents about her relationship with McKenzie at one point. 

Mischa portrayed the character Marissa Cooper in the popular TV series "The O.C." Her role as Marissa, a troubled yet beloved character, earned her widespread recognition. Alongside her, McKenzie starred as Ryan Atwood, a brooding outsider who becomes an integral part of the show's narrative. 

Barton's departure from "The O.C." came as a surprise to many fans. After the show's third season, she decided to move on from the show. Interestingly, she also revealed that she ended her relationship with Ben while they were still working together on the show.
