Katherine Langford Opens Up About How She Handles '13 Reasons Why' Critics

13 Reasons Why has caused many discussions since it premiered in March.

There have been fans, and health professionals speaking out against the show, saying it romanticizes suicide instead of creating a positive discussion.

Katherine Langford disagrees.

“There have been measures in aftercare, which is something that Netflix and the show didn’t need to do,” she points out. “It’s a testament to the vision that the creators had for this show, to tell it in the most authentic way possible, but then also recognize that it could have a significant impact.”

She adds, “We do a 30-minute Beyond the Reasons, kind of debriefing after Episode 13. There are trigger warnings, and there are articles.”

Katherine is proud to be a part of the show, no matter what the critics may say.

“I also understand that when you do a show that covers really serious, personal and relevant issues, there’s going to be a difference of opinion,” she says.

“I think that difference of opinions and discussion is the important part, and it’s where the show makes a difference, being able to talk about things and share opinions, and the reasons why we think that way.”
