Kate Walsh Defends '13 Reasons Why' Depiction Of Suicide: 'It Was Important For Us To Be Honest'

Kate Walsh is speaking up in defense of her new Netflix series 13 Reasons Why for the teen drama’s depiction of assault and suicide.

SPOILER: the 49-year-old actress plays Olivia Baker, the grieving mother of Hannah (Katherine Langford), the teenager whose suicide sits at the center of the show.

“I think that anything that’s at all kept secret is inextricably intertwined with shame and secrecy, (and) should be outed,” Kate recently expressed (via USA TODAY). “I can’t speak for (creator) Brian [Yorkey], but I know that it was important for us to be as honest as we could.”

“Part of the problem is not talking about it and not seeing it, and not seeing what really happens, and that it’s this mysterious kind of thing that’s never spoken about or never seen,” Kate continued. “And we just shove it under the rug, and nobody talks about it, and we just hope that it doesn’t happen to them or their children or friends or family. So I think that (for) Brian, it was an important decision to be as real and as accurate as we could and show how painful it is, physically, emotionally and in every other sense.”

Kate Walsh Celebrates Opening Night Of Her Off-Broadway Play 'If I Forget' - Watch Preview Here!

Kate Walsh is hitting the stage on the world premiere off-Broadway production of If I Forget, by Steven Levenson (Dear Evan Hansen)!

The 49-year-old actress was joined by her co-stars Maria Dizzia and Tasha Lawrence as they celebrated at the opening night party of If I Forget held at the Laura Pels Theatre on Wednesday (February 22) in New York City.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Kate Walsh

Directed by Tony winner Daniel Sullivan, If I Forget is described as follows: “In the final months before 9/11, liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer has reunited with his two sisters to celebrate their father’s 75th birthday. Each deeply invested in their own version of family history, the siblings clash over everything from Michael’s controversial scholarly work to the mounting pressures of caring for an ailing parent. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, the three negotiate — with biting humor and razor-sharp insight — how much of the past they’re willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning. If I Forget tells a powerful tale of a family and a culture at odds with itself.”

The new play officially opens February 22 for a limited engagement through April 30 – Watch a preview of If I Forget below!
