You Won't Believe What These 13 Reasons Why Actors Used To Look Like

It's been one month since 13 Reasons Why premiered on Netflix — and we'd beg to argue that, in a lot of ways, it has hit us harder than Beyoncé's pregnancy announcement. We can't imagine what we binge-watched before it, and are completely infatuated with the entire cast. The matching tattoos, the sweet friendship stories, the bestie spa nights — we're invested in every moment. And since we don't know if there will be a season two, you can bet we'll be spending the next few weeks reminiscing on the show.
If you, too, have wondered where these actors came from (and how in the hell you lived without them for so long), we've got you. We dug into the depths of the internet and found out that some of our characters have actually been in Hollywood for quite some time. But how haven't we noticed? Let's just say they've had quite the growth spurt. Yes, you missed Clay on your TV screens, once upon a time — and Alex, Sheri, and even Skye.

Before we knew him as Clay Jensen, the teen who loves hoodies and long bike rides, he played a patient on Grey's Anatomy.

Nowadays, he's all grown up and in a badass band — even Kylie Jenner can't resist him.

Talk about a transformation. IRL, Bacon is far from her grunge character Skye — she has zero neck tattoos in sight.
