13 Reasons Why's Justin Prentice Says Most Rapists Don't Know What Consent Is

Justin Prentice is looking ahead to season two of 13 Reasons Why.

The actor plays Bryce, who is possibly the most hated character right now after he raped Hannah in the first season of the Netflix series.

“Like most people, I think it’s very normal when you hear about a case of rape or sexual assault to immediately be angry at the person doing the rape, which of course I still am,” Justin shared with People. “It’s an important thing.”

He adds, “But I think it gave me deeper insight into what’s wrong and why these things are happening — having to force myself to get into the mind of these people and how they’re capable of doing what they do.”

Portraying a rapist on screen is tough, which is why he had a “psychiatrist and a sexual assault expert on speed dial.”

“It’s a lack of education,” he explains about why rapists do what they do. “These people, one, they may have a sense of arrogance in that they can get away with whatever they want to due to the sports or money or power or what have you.”

Justin adds, “But then on top of that, they’re not properly educated on what consent is and what sex should look like and what a healthy relationship should look like.”

13 Reasons Why is streaming on Netflix now.
