Biography

With his natural talent and drive, it was inevitable that Dylan O'Brien would find his way into show business. While he initially harbored dreams of becoming a cinematographer, the future star eventually found himself acting in front of the camera. O'Brien's first onscreen job was a lead part on the original Web series "Sweety High" (2010) followed by a featured role in the mildly buzzed about independent film "High Road" (2011), in which he played a fearful teen runaway. With just a few acting credits to his name, O'Brien was suddenly thrust into the spotlight when he nabbed a starring role on the television series "Teen Wolf" (MTV, 2011), inspired by the cult classic 1985 film of the same name starring Michael J. Fox. On the series, O'Brien played the lead character's outgoing and loyal best friend, a role that made the actor a household name among the teen crowd and established him as one of his generation's most dynamic and promising young stars.

O'Brien studied sports broadcasting at Syracuse University and seriously considered a career as a play-by-play announcer.

.

"I never really understood why actors get paid so much money. But now I feel like it's because they have to sacrifice their lives sometimes, you know? Some people may want that, but I said it: I'm shy and reserved, and there is nothing about me that wants to throw myself out to the world like that. I don't resent those people or anything, but it's hard to feel like you're a person. You go around everywhere and people treat you like a doll." - from www.elle.com, September 30, 2014
