Did You Know?
Neither Katherine Langford
(Hannah) nor Dylan Minnette
(Clay) had read the book "Thirteen Reasons Why" before being cast to star in the series. Langford read it in between being cast and filming, but Minette didn't want to confuse the character in the book with the character in the show, so he didn't read it. See more
