"It's physically painful to watch."

Katherine Langford (who plays Hannah Baker) has opened up about her controversial death scene in 13 Reasons Why.

I an interview with Teen Vogue, Katherine opened up about her thoughts on the scene that got everyone talking:

"I don't think there was ever a moment where we didn't want to show Hannah's suicide because that wouldn't have been staying true to the vision of the show. I felt like it would have sugarcoated the severity of the issue. It's not pretty, it's not romanticized, it's not a beautiful tragedy—it's agonizing, and it's physically painful to watch."

She went on to say:

"I think one of the best things that the show has done, from what I've heard and what I've seen, is it's started a discussion in a really big way. I think it's that discussion where I feel like the impact or the change can be made. The show may not necessarily be the change, but if it can be the instigator for that kind of discussion, then that's where I find that it's helpful."
