2. Dylan Minnette helped pick the show’s soundtrack
“I had a dialogue with the creator from the get-go about what songs should be on the soundtrack. I love that he was so open and it was very much a collaboration. There are so many artists on the soundtrack that I’m so proud of. And Clay’s room is filled with posters of my favourite bands. There are other artists that I would love to have in there, but they aren’t artists that I feel Clay would listen to. You’ll see there are a couple Arcade Fire posters, Bon Iver, The Cure, The Shins, and some other cool things. I wanted to make sure it all felt very real, and I wanted the vibe to be appropriate.”

According to the director Brian Yorkey, the decision to change Hannah’s method of suicide to slitting her wrists was made with a specific goal in mind: “We worked very hard not to be gratuitous, but we did want it to be painful to watch because we wanted to be very clear that there is nothing, in any way, worthwhile about suicide.”

Katherine was born in Perth and was super-excited to get the chance to live the American dream during filming.
“This may just be me, but I feel like everyone’s dream is to live as an American high school student. There are so many teen films set in America that you live vicariously through them, anyway. But it was totally different. I got to experience Halloween, and prom, and cheerleaders… and the Fourth of July! It was crazy.”
7. Selena and the cast inked matching tattoos
Selena, Tommy Dorfman (Ryan) and Alisha Boe (Jessica) all inked the matching semi-colon tattoos on their wrist.
Tommy posted this photo on Instagram with the caption: “Today was a magical day. Another day to be grateful to be alive. Alisha, Selena, and I went together to get ; tattoos. The ; symbol stands for an end of one thought and a beginning of another. Instead of a period, authors use the semicolon to continue a sentence. For us, it means a beginning of another chapter in life, in lieu of ending your life. I struggled with addiction and depression issues through high school and early college. I reached out and asked for help. At the time, I thought my life was over, I thought I’d never live past the age of 21. Today I’m grateful to be alive, in this new chapter of life in recovery, standing with my colleagues and friends, making art that helps other people. If you’re struggling, if you feel suicidal, I urge you to click the link in my bio. Ask for help. Start a new chapter with the support of others. ⛅️☀️and RIP Amy Bleul, who started the semicolon movement.”
