About Dylan O'Brien

Dylan O'Brien grew up in Springfield Township, Union County, New Jersey before moving with his family to Hermosa Beach, California when he was 12 years old. Before getting bit by the acting bug, Dylan planned to attend film school and become a cinematographer, just like his father. But once he landed the role of Scott's (Tyler Posey) goofy sidekick Stiles on Teen Wolf, he decided to put off school. (He was initially under consideration for the role of Scott, but he was more interested in playing Stiles.) In addition to his role as Stiles in Teen Wolf, dynamic young actor Dylan O'Brien also stars as Dave in the romantic comedy feature film The First Time, directed by Jon Kasdan. Additionally, Dylan is one of the stars of the entirely improvised independent feature film High Road, directed by Upright Citizens Brigade. Dylan has also developed an extensive YouTube following for a series of comic online shorts, which he directed, produced and starred in.
