The toughest part of playing Hannah Baker on the first season of “13 Reasons Why” wasn’t the heavy source material or how far she had to go for the role of a suicidal high schooler, according to show star Katherine Langford. The young actress highlighted her last scene — the one in the bathtub — for Hannah in episode 13 as being one of the toughest things she had to do on set, but “not because of the reasons you probably think it is,” she told TheWrap.

“At that point I had been playing her for six months and I had to let her go,” said Langford, an Australian who moved to Los Angeles to shoot the 13-episode series in her first major Hollywood role. She said she had gotten sick the night before they shot the bathtub scene. “I was sick and I had to let her go and I was crying in my trailer, because I’m like, ‘I don’t want to let her go,’” she said.
