Mischa Barton's character is to be killed off in a shocking final episode of the 'OC'.
In recent months, rumours have been circulating that Mischa was ready to leave the series.
Now it has been confirmed that Mischa's character Marissa Cooper will be killed in a high speed car crash and dies on the roadside in the arms of her ex-boyfriend, Ryan Atwood.
Mischa told 'Access Hollywood': "My character has been through so, so much and there's really nothing more left for her to do."
Before starring in the show, about the lives of rich Californian teenagers, Mischa had worked as a model and appeared in films including 'Notting Hill' and 'The Sixth Sense'.
She is also the spokesmodel for fashion label bebe and cosmetic products Neutrogena.
Her new movie 'Guilty Pleasures' is due to be released next year.
