Harrowing yet empathic, Hulu’s “Under the Bridge” is based on Rebecca Godfrey’s book of the same title about the 1997 murder of Reena Virk, a 14-year-old Canadian girl who was beaten and killed by her fellow teenagers.

Vritika Gupta embodies Reena in the eight-episode series that also stars Lily Gladstone as local police officer Cam Bentland and Riley Keough as the author Rebecca Godfrey.

I spent some time with Vritika and her co-star, Aiyana Goodfellow (Dusty Pace), to talk about their interest in making the show, its message, and what they hoped for viewers to get after watching “Under the Bridge.”

“Under the Bridge” is now available to stream on Hulu.

Chloe Guidry and Javon “Wanna” Walton play the real-life teenagers who conspired to end the life of 14-year-old Reena Virk in Hulu’s “Under the Bridge.”  Both actors take us inside the making of “Under the Bridge” in this interview.
