On March 31, 2017, Netflix released the teen drama 13 Reasons Why. The show centers on the suicide of Hannah Baker. The teenager gives her friend Clay Jensen a series of tapes that reveal all the reasons why she killed herself. On May 18, 2018, Netflix released Season 2 of the drama, despite the controversy surrounding the series.

Most of the 13 Reasons Why cast is young, but that doesn't mean they weren't working before the Netflix hit. If you’ve watched the popular and controversial show, some of the actors will definitely look familiar. 

What popular ABC drama did Dylan Minnette (Clay) appear on? What recent teen movie did Katherine Langford (Hannah) star in? And on what TV show did we see Miles Heizer (Alex) cry all the time?
