Katherine Langford, around whose character the series ‘Thirteen Reasons Why’ revolves around, says she couldn’t film any of the episodes in the series’ finale which arrived on June 5th.
“I think I was still filming Cursed, so I wasn’t able to go in and shoot anything,” Katherine told Digital Spy, referring to her new young adult fantasy series that is coming to Netflix on July 17.
The series is based on an Arthurian legend in which Katherine’s character is a teenage sorceress named Nimue and encounters a young Arthur on his quest to find a powerful and ancient sword.
Langford has been so busy with all her new projects that she didn’t even get the time to watch either Series 3 or 4. However, she has been coping up and has almost finished series 3, “It’s funny because I haven’t fully seen season three or four – but I’m making my way through season three and watching season four now that that chapter’s closed,” Katherine continued to tell Digital Spy.
She continued to talk about her Thirteen Reasons Why cast members and only had good things to say about them. “I’m really proud of everyone in the cast, and we’re still really tight. In many ways, I already know what happens and I’m just so proud for them. Closing that chapter was such a special part instilled in all of our lives,” she added.
It was shocking to watch the show without seeing ‘Hannah Baker’ in it, but the show carried along really well and worked around her absence by using the Winter Formal scene of Season 1 to film the last episode, cut to in which Hannah talks to clay Jensen (played by Dylan) in his vision after graduation.
Many sources asked Katherine if she was informed by the show’s team to use her scenes being used in the finale and she said that she was and was totally okay with her scenes being used and was happy for her character to still be a part of it. “Yes, I did. I did know. Yeah,” she confirmed with the outlet, when asked about the sentimental scene.
