Career of Katherine Langford
Katherine Langford started studying classical, jazz, and contemporary voice lessons when she was nine years old, and by the time she was in high school, she was passionate about musical theater.

After three teenagers in Perth committed suicide in 2013, the singer-songwriter created the anti-suicide song “Young and Stupid.” She is also the author of the songs “3 Words” and “I’ve Got a Crush on Zoe Bosch.”
She was resolved to pursue an acting career after high school. She was unfortunately rejected by a lot of acting schools since she was too young and had little life experience.

She was cast as Hannah Baker, an American high school student, in the teen web series “13 Reasons Why” in 2017.

She conducted a further study for the part by speaking with a sexual assault awareness campaign spokesperson from “It’s On Us” as well as a doctor who specialized in adolescent situations. Her efforts paid off, as her performance received favorable reviews.
