MISCHA BARTON was far from surprised when her former series THE OC was cancelled recently – because ratings dropped significantly when she left the show.
The 20-year-old star played MARISSA COOPER on the teen series and died in a car accident at the end of the last season.
When asked if she was surprised that the show had been axed she told Fox News, “No. They killed me off.”
When asked if she had been one of the main reasons that fans tuned into the show, she added, “That’s what I think they discovered.”
