'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.”

13 Reasons Why is streaming now on Netflix.

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.”

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.

One of the major twists on 13 Reasons Why in season two was the realization that Chloe was pregnant with Bryce’s baby.

During the trial, we all saw Chloe change her mind about testifying against Bryce and if the show is renewed for another season, her pregnancy might be one of the storylines fans will see, and get some answers to.

Speaking to ET, Justin Prentice opened up about the pregnancy and how it would affect the two, as well as how his family would play a part in it.

“I think that along with looking Bryce in the eye and being there made it way harder than she thought it was going to be to single him out,” Justin shared. “Bryce is very manipulative.”

He continues, “As we saw in the flashback when they were kids, he wasn’t always this monster of a person, so there are bits of goodness in Bryce… so I think she’s kind of confused in that moment.”

Justin also opened up on if abortion would be on the table, considering his family.

“I think it very much could be and it would be interesting to see how they handle it because from my point of view, Bryce comes from a powerful family and they have a way of making things disappear, so I don’t know. It’d be very interesting to see,” Justin says.

Anne Winters also shared an inspiring message for anyone going through what Chloe is going through on the show, too. Read it below:
