Like the millions of other avid Netflix users, I became hooked on the show 13 Reasons Why from the moment it released in 2017. The show’s subject matter immediately sparked numerous conversations and it became a hit rather quickly. Viewers, including myself, were ecstatic when Netflix revealed last year that the show would be returning for a third season. After going through the emotional rollercoaster of the first and second seasons and getting to know the characters in the process, it is safe to say that the character of Zach Dempsey, brought to life on the screen by the talented Ross Butler, is one of the show’s most dynamic characters. I got the chance to talk with Ross Butler about not just his role as Zach but about his musical talents, goals, and thoughts on the changing entertainment industry.

ested in learning more about. “What drew me to Zach was that he isn’t your typical jock. I liked that he is a jock and a part of the popular crowd but he still has a heart of gold.” For Ross, the role of Zach offered a unique opportunity. “He gave me a chance to play a different kind of jock than I was used to.”

As fans of the show witnessed during this past season of 13 Reasons Why, Zach undergoes significant character development. One of the most shocking reveals of the season was the trial’s unveiling of Zach’s secret fling with Hannah the previous summer. “With that new knowledge, you realize that he didn’t do as much as he could have to change what happened. When we were filming it I definitely had mixed feelings about Zach.” After Zach’s testimony, it is clear to the audience that Aside from acting, Ross is a gifted mu- he deeply regretted his decisions and, sician who is well versed in piano and from Ross’s perspective, “it inspires guitar.

comforting. It makes working on this subject a lot less painful. We are able to bring ourselves out of the story a lot easier.” Other than the incredible cast of 13 Reasons Why, another cast that had a large impact on the entertainment industry recently is the group that brought us Crazy Rich Asians last summer. Ross Butler, having expressed his excitement towards the film, spoke to me about the movie’s influence. “It absolutely had an impact. It was just a huge explosive success. I’m friends with tons of people on the cast and the director and they’re such wonderful people. They are all coming away from this feeling so empowered and I can say, from someone that wasn’t in it, that I feel empowered as well and it was a great thing for our community.” While Crazy Rich Asians changed the game for Asian and Asian American representation, there is still more work to be done to stop the marginalization of this community in entertainment. “I think the next step is that we can have these kinds of movies and this much diversity in a non all Asian production. We don’t need to make it an Asian thing for there to be Asian leads in movies. That’s definitely what I am trying to do. What I have been doing is playing roles that aren’t necessarily designated as ‘Asian’ but just as ‘person.’” Finally, I was curious about if Ross had any New Year’s resolutions. “I can’t remember the last time I went to a movie theater and just watched a movie. I want to start doing that more just to remind myself of why I’m in this industry and what I want to do. I don’t want the feeling of going to a movie theater to watch something to die. That’s a tradition I don’t think we can let slip so I think I’m going to start going more often to inspire myself and allow myself to be immersed and turn off my phone and just allow myself to enjoy it.”
