We are back with another O.C. Whoops! This time a good ole camera reflection get in the frame! Classic mistake guys! The Whoops happens in Season 1 Episode 11 "The Homecoming"- the scene is where Ryan and Marissa head over to see Trey in prison and bring him Kirsten's store bought dessert (thank god).
Here is a one-of-a-kind rare photo of the actual Cohen house set front facade. As you can see it matches with the scene above. Notice how there isn't anything attaching at certain points of the house, this is because the cameras never went up that high, therefor appearing to be a real complete house to the viewer.
This set front was built as very close replica to the actual house in Malibu..As you can see some details are different from the set built front vs the actual front. But like Seth Cohen says "That's Hollywood for ya!".
