Sophia Bush has channelled her One Tree Hill character and debuted a new hair colour.

The Brooke Davis actress has shared pictures of her new copper hue in an Instagram post on July 4, writing in the caption: "We decided to put the RED in 'red white and blue' this year".

Bush, who's also been seen in Chicago Med and short-lived medical drama Good Sam, has recently opened up on her sexual orientation, confirming she's in a relationship with former US football player Ashlyn Harris.

Confirmation of their romance followed her divorce from Grant Hughes, with Bush penning an essay for Glamour in which she came out as "queer".

"I sort of hate the notion of having to come out in 2024," Bush wrote in April this year.

"But I'm deeply aware that we are having this conversation in a year when we're seeing the most aggressive attacks on the LGBTQIA+ community in modern history. There were more than 500 anti-LGBTQIA+ bills proposed in state legislatures in 2023, so for that reason I want to give the act of coming out the respect and honor it deserves.

"I've experienced so much safety, respect, and love in the queer community, as an ally all of my life, that, as I came into myself, I already felt it was my home.

"I think I've always known that my sexuality exists on a spectrum. Right now I think the word that best defines it is queer. I can't say it without smiling, actually. And that feels pretty great."

Bush will next be seen in switched-at-birth thriller The Stranger in My Home alongside Grey's Anatomy star Chris Carmack, as well as Chris Johnson and Amiah Miller.

The Stranger in My Home does not yet have a release date.
