Tommy Dorfman Interview

PAPER People: Tommy Dorfman

Adapted From:

Your character on 13 Reasons Why, Ryan Shaver, has become a fan favorite. What do you think he means to people?

For some people it’s the first gay kid in high school that’s comfortable with themselves that they’ve seen sort of represented on screen. You don’t see a lot of that — especially on mainstream media. So, I think that’s been really important. I think fostering acceptance, either with oneself or with peers, or kids that they go to school with that maybe they didn’t understand before. It’s interesting to play a character that’s so outspoken and so confident and dry and intelligent at such a young age.

And so self-aware.

And so self-aware and I think that really speaks to this generation of kids. I’m 26, so I’m obviously not in high school. But talking to high schoolers now, they feel so much more complex and inspired and smart. They’re so fucking smart. Maybe a lot of that has to do with social media and having those kinds of interactions and learning things from people that aren’t just in their community. Their worlds in some ways are smaller because of their cell phones, but also a lot larger. They have access to so much more information.

When I was in middle school, I was in Abercrombie head-to-toe.

Same! Like, I was not cool. I didn’t know how to do my makeup or any of that stuff. On one hand it makes me sad I guess, but on the other hand, I think we have a really bright future ahead of us. I lean on the optimistic side of things.

I think you sitting here, being openly queer, openly fluid and a successful actor shows how far we’ve come.

To be honest, it wasn’t a future I was sure I was able to have and I know a lot of people that feel that way. There were not a lot of examples of that before. But there are now and I think there will continue to be. Hopefully.

There’s obviously so far to go and I know sometimes it feels like it’s regressing with the current administration’s policies.

In some ways, I think that fuels us to be more proactive and more honest and open and challenge what’s coming against us.
