Dylan O'Brien

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's starring role in the dystopian young adult action film "The Maze Runner" (2014) and sequel "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" (2015) made O'Brien a rising young film star, but his serious injury on the set of the third film in the trilogy at least temporarily put that future on hold.
