You know her from her breakout role as Hannah Baker in 13 Reasons Why, but Katherine Langford has another spectacular talent: singing.
The 20-year-old Perth girl has an old Youtube account – last used three years ago – with three amazing original songs: ‘I’ve Got a Crush on Zoe Bosch’, ‘Young and Stupid’, and ‘3 Words’.
“A quick song I wrote before leaving to go overseas,” she wrote of ‘Young and Stupid’, which she uploaded on Youtube in April 2013. “Influenced by the events of this last week, as well as the tragic deaths of three Perth teenagers in the last few months.”
In all three songs she plays piano, a skill she taught herself after being inspired by her idol Lady Gaga.
“I went to see [her] Born This Way [tour],” the Aussie actress told Entertainment Weekly. “I don’t know what happened. It was like a spiritual experience, and I was so moved by her performance that I went home and that week I taught myself how to play piano.”

The 13 Reasons Why star couldn’t stop raving about the 31 year old songstress in an interview with Marie Claire.
“I am a massive Little Monster. She’s my queen,” she told the publication. “Christian Navarro, who plays Tony on 13 Reasons Why, had a karaoke birthday party and I did ‘Born This Way.’ I was so into it that halfway through, I stood up on the table. The song immediately cut off, and I was told to get down! I love a good rock-out.”
Katherine actually had a very special star-struck moment with the Bad Romance’ singer just this week. Lady Gaga tweeted a shout-out to the actress, and Katherine lost her chill, filming her reaction on Snapchat.
“She knows who I am!,” Katherine gushed.
As for whether she has any more music in the works, we’re unsure, though we can expect to see her on screen again. Katherine is set to star in the 2018 film Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda with Jennifer Garner.
