13 Reasons Why's Brandon Butler Actually Auditioned For This Other Role in the Series

Scott Reed almost wasn’t Scott Reed in 13 Reasons Why.

Actor Brandon Butler admitted to Seventeen that he actually auditioned for a completely different role – Alex!

“I actually first auditioned for the role of Alex when the show was in the auditioning process back in 2016,” he shared. “Ever since then I followed up on the show and watched all of season 1 on Netflix and became a fan of it myself.”

Brandon also opened up on Scott’s story arc and finding out that he wasn’t as bad a guy as he thought he would be.

“At first, I was pretty surprised Scott would turn on Monty in episode 12. I had a discussion early on with [showrunner] Brian Yorkey and he told me that Scott actually wasn’t a bad guy like Bryce, so I at least was conscious of that while filming,” he shared.

“I was learning who he was as we got the scripts over the course of filming. I’m glad that Scott did the right thing in the end.”

Brandon also says that being one of the new actors on set for season two wasn’t as scary as you’d think and it’s all because the OG cast are the friendliest people ever.

“I will admit I was a little anxious and nervous coming into it, but everyone was so welcoming, which made the experience that much more special to me,” he shared.

13 Reasons Why is streaming now on Netflix.
