’13 Reasons Why’s’ Newest Cast Member Is Dishing Dirt on Season 2
If you didn’t think 13 Reasons Why couldn’t possibly get any more dramatic, think again — there’s teenage angst yet to come, and plenty of it! In fact, from the sounds of comments made by the show’s newest cast member, Anne Winters, to Flare magazine, her character was brought on to bring it.
According to Winters (who you might also recognize from the network’s film Reality High), season two will see her introduced (along with six other actors announced back in August), as an It-girl named Chloe. “She’s a cheerleader,” she says. “I am one of the new characters, and you will see a lot of me.”
She also gave us a clue to the nature of her role, which is “very different… than other people I’ve played.” “I will be involved in a lot of drama, that’s for sure,” she shared.
While she didn’t give TOO much away, the young actress did offer up some further insight on the Tweet Netflix posted in May about how the series will handle rape culture, as well.

“It’s so interesting, because, I mean, the people [in the show] who are doing wrong maybe don’t even understand that it is wrong, and the people that are going through it are thinking, ‘Is this wrong?’” she said. “This season will explore a little of those gray areas — it’s not as black and white as last season — so that when people raise the question of, ‘Well, wasn’t it her fault if she did this or that?,’ this seasons shows a different take on it. This season shows a lot more answers of why people are doing what they’re doing.”
Sounds like we’ll have a lot to contemplate when it hits Netflix in 2018.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
