Tommy Dorfman Talks His Controversial Scene In '13 Reasons Why' Season 2

Tommy Dorfman smiles as he makes an appearance at BUILD Series on Monday (June 4) in New York City.

The 13 Reasons Why actor talked the hit Netflix show, that controversial scene towards the end of season two, his personal experiences with sexual assault, and being open about sexuality.

“I think for me since day one on this show, we’re here to tell stories. These stories might be different from other people’s experiences, but I found if you focus less on the details of what’s happening and more on the emotional journey, you can find ways to relate,” he dished. “I think that’s what a lot of our fan base has done. I know me in particular, I’ve had that experience with this show.”

“That scene in particular, is of course, can be very triggering and it is very difficult to watch, but it’s important to note that rape victims come in different sizes and shapes and genders,” Tommy continued. “It’s not always a girl who’s getting assaulted, sometimes it is a guy. And I think for us, it was important to share that story and share Tyler’s story.”

FYI: Tommy is wearing Coach.

Katherine Langford & Dylan Minnette Join '13 Reasons Why Cast' For Netflix Event

Katherine Langford & Dylan Minnette Join '13 Reasons Why Cast' For Netflix Event

The cast of 13 Reasons Why got together for a special Netflix event!

The cast – including Katherine Langford, Dylan Minnette, Derek Luke, Alisha Boe and Miles Heizer – hit the carpet at a Netflix FYSee event on Friday (June 1) at Raleigh Studios in Los Angeles.

During the panel discussion, creator Brian Yorkey opened up about what fans can expect if the show is renewed for a third season.

“I think the themes are sort of inherent in the action of Season 2. It’s a question of, is there more story to tell, do we want to see these kids not only continue to recover, but, how do they bring forward into their lives the thing they’ve learned about what they’ve been through?” Brian said.

Meanwhile, Katherine once again said goodbye to the show, adding that she plans to always keep in touch with the show’s fans.

“I think 13 Reasons Why will always be an important part of my life. It was the first job I ever had,” Katherine said.

'13 Reasons Why's Timothy Granaderos Talks What He Did To Prepare For Playing Monty in Season 2

'13 Reasons Why's Timothy Granaderos Talks What He Did To Prepare For Playing Monty in Season 2

Let’s get honest here – Monty is not anyone’s favorite character on 13 Reasons Why.

Much like Bryce in season one (and season two, as well), Monty is the most hated character out there right now – and actor Timothy Granaderos knows it.

“From a viewer’s perspective, I hope Monty gets what’s coming to him,” Timothy shared in a new interview with Seventeen. “Most of the threats [I'm getting] are towards Monty, not me.”

He adds, “Monty’s actions have sparked some strong emotional responses. And to be honest, I would be shocked if people weren’t reacting the way they are. Our fans are very passionate and I love them for that.”

Timothy, who isn’t anything like Monty at all, also talked about how he got into his headspace when they filmed the brutal rape scene with Devin Druid.

“In preparation for those scenes, I did a lot of research on similar scenarios. I was trying to understand the mentality behind such brutal acts of violence and I found that the root of Monty’s actions is pain,” he says. “On the days that we shot those scenes, I isolated myself as much as possible, and in between takes listened to very angst-y music.”

“The entire crew and my fellow castmates were more than amazing! Everyone was hypersensitive to the work, and provided a safe and nurturing environment.”

Alisha Boe Reveals She Originally Auditioned For This Character on '13 Reasons Why'

Alisha Boe Reveals She Originally Auditioned For This Character on '13 Reasons Why'

Alisha Boe plays Jessica on Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why and we honestly, couldn’t see anyone else in that role – however, it’s not the original part she went out for.

Speaking with W magazine in a new interview, the 21-year-old actress revealed that she actually auditioned for Hannah Baker (just like Anne Winters, who plays Chloe, did).

“I was so surprised when I booked 13 Reasons Why, because I originally auditioned for Hannah and was like, ‘There is no way I am going to book a lead on the show,’” she shared with the mag.

Although she didn’t get the role of Hannah, the show did like her as Jessica.

“I had read the book when I was 14, and it was one of my favorite books. When they asked me to audition for Jessica, I disconnected with it,” Alisha says. “She’s supposed to be a pretty, popular teenager, and in my head, just from being brainwashed from all these breakdowns growing up, it’s a blonde girl with blue eyes.”

She adds, “But since Brian [Yorkey, showrunner] and all of them are so inclusive with their casting, they didn’t even think about it. It was my first time being able to be separated from being someone’s best friend, or being the butt of the joke, or an accessory. It was a dream come true for me. I didn’t expect it to come that fast.”

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

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.
