“Thank you for saving my life.”
Fans of 13 Reasons Why know that Bryce is a horrific and universally despised character. On the show, he’s a bully, a liar, and a sexual predator.
The actor who plays Bryce, Justin Prentice, is nothing like his onscreen character. But Bryce, and the show, have been the center of some debate after the first season tackled such heavy subject matter and was marketed mainly to teens.
Ahead of the second season, Netflix commissioned a study from Northwestern University that examines how young people and adults reacted to the show. And today they released an exclusive video of Prentice reading a letter from a fan of 13 Reasons Why who’s a sexual assault survivor.
