Rachel Bilson plays Zoe Hart in The CW's fish-out-water dramedy, Hart of Dixie. Zoe is a fast-talking New Yorker who recently graduated from medical school. She winds up working for a small practice in Bluebell, Alabama after her New York dreams fall apart. Josh Schwartz, the creator/producer of The O.C., is the executive producer of Hart of Dixie.

Rachel says being 30 and working on a show is different than when she was 21 and on The O.C.. She says, "It's kind of like you know the drill. It's nice to step into a role and a job that you're very familiar with the surroundings and what's expected and so you can not think about the technicalities as much and just do your work well."

Rachel also says she feels very comfortable working with Josh Schwartz, who is married to her best friend. Take a look:
