Selena Gomez previews her 'Only You' cover from 13 Reasons Why

Katherine Langford

Not since 1990-when Laura Palmer was found, wrapped in plastic, on a riverbank in the first episode of Twin Peaks-has a TV series attempted to solve a problem like Hannah Baker, played by Aussie newcomer Katherine Langford.

Gomez, who executive produced the show, stunned in an orange Oscar de la Renta strapless minidress. I still reactively balk at the decision to take a fascinating tale of doomed female experience and place it in the hands of a male character - a demographic that's already well represented in the halls of high school drama - and while I'm still not sure I agree with the narrative choice, I couldn't name a better candidate to shoulder the often handsome and deeply stirring truths Hannah slowly unpacks. "Prior to making this huge television series, our two lead actors had never been in a room together".

Netflix's upcoming series is based on the 2007 book from Jay Asher, "Thirteen Reasons Why", which became a New York Times bestseller in 2011. "I want people to know that every single life is valuable, that their voice can be heard, and that there are people who are willing to be there for them". "I was a little more defensive", she said. That's kind of a blessing; it's cool to be able to have that from the writer. Hannah's journey of humiliation, thwarted hope and misery is a terrible one, but Langford's heartbreaking openness makes you root for a fate you know isn't possible.

North Carolina's "bathroom bill" repeal: who's satisfied?
It has threatened to keep siting its sporting events in other states as long as House Bill 2 remains on the books. California and NY had banned nonessential travel by state employees to North Carolina after HB2 became law.

Selena adds, "So I think the message and people, no matter what age you are, can relate to the story". In fact, it was so powerful that the scene would have packed just as much of an emotional punch had it not followed an explicit depiction of the end of Hannah's life. Clay Jensen is determined to figure it out.

"After 6 years waiting to find the flawless Hannah and Clay for @13reasonswhy I couldn't be luckier we cast these two", Gomez wrote in February. They're the couple at the center of the drama, which tells the story of a high school student who commits suicide and leaves cassette tapes for her classmates that detail the struggles she faced prior to her death.
