Katherine Langford Early Life
Katherine Langford started her voice lessons in 2005, which included jazz, classical and contemporary vocal training. She attended Perth Modern School for her senior high, and while there studied drama and music. She was also the sports captain, and was ranked a national swimmer. During high school, Katherine became interested in politics and medicine on top of the musical theater, however, in 2012 a Lady Gags concert, the Born This Way Ball, inspired her to take piano lessons. Later, she shared a video singing three songs she had written herself, one entitled “Young and Stupid” which is an anti-suicide song that she wrote in 2013, after three teenagers committed suicide in Perth.

In 2013, she appeared in the school’s production “Hotel Sorrento”, the same year that she matriculated.
After her matriculation, she had made the decision to become an actress, however, this proved to be harder than she thought as she was rejected from all the acting schools she applied to, as being too young and lacking enough life experience. This pushed her to enroll in acting classes as well as workshops in her hometown, as well as juggling three part-time jobs. From 2014 to 2015 she studied music theater at the Principal Academy of Dance & Theater Arts. She appeared in the “Godspell” production in 2015, and was then selected to take part in the National Institute of Dramatic Arts as one of the five participants of Advanced Actors Residency.
That same year Katherine trained at Nicholson’s Academy of Screen Acting, where she depicted the role of Juan Peron’s mistress in the production of “Evita”, and was offered a slot in the Bachelor of Arts in Acting Program at the Western Australian Academy. She intended to start her studies in 2016, but enrolled, instead deciding to pursue professional roles.
Katherine began her vocation in various small autonomous films such as “Imperfect Quadrant” and “Misguided”. In 2016 she starred in the movie “Daughter”, depicting the lead character, Scarlett, before her big break came in 2017, when she was selected to appear as the lead role as Hannah Baker in the Netflix series, “13 Reasons Why”. The plot follows an American high school understudy, who comes up with 13 purposes behind her taking her own life.
