Dylan O’Brien was born in New York City, to Lisa Rhodes, a former actress who also ran an acting school, and Patrick B. O’Brien, a camera operator. His father is of Irish descent and his mother is of English, Spanish, and Italian ancestry. Dylan 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 Оборотень (2011), he decided to put off school (he was initially under consideration for the role of Scott, but he was more interested in playing Stiles). Dylan has developed an extensive YouTube following for a series of comic online shorts which he directed, produced and starred in. He made his film debut as one of the stars of the entirely improvised independent feature film В дороге (2011), directed by Upright Citizens Brigade. O’Brien’s first lead role in a film was playing Dave in the comedy В первый раз (2012), opposite Britt Robertson and directed by Jonathan Kasdan. He subsequently had a supporting role, playing tech expert Stuart, in the Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson comedy Кадры (2013), and headlined the fantasy adventure film Бегущий в лабиринте (2014), also starring Will Poulter and Kaya Scodelario, as well as its sequel, Бегущий в лабиринте: Испытание огнем (2015). He will next play Caleb Holloway in the true life-based Глубоководный горизонт (2016).
