Is Dylan O’Brien In Teen Wolf: The Movie?
Actor Dylan O’Brien’s Stiles Stilinski has been considered the heart of ‘Teen Wolf,’ alongside the story’s soul – Tyler Posey’s Scott McCall. Stiles is arguably the most popular character of the show, and his signature wit is many viewers’ introduction to sarcasm. In the lead-up to the film’s release, O’Brien denied his involvement in the project. As a result, several fans were hoping that O’Brien would prove to be the metaphorical “werewolf” of the conversation and show up for a cameo. After all, the actor did reprise his role in the second half of the sixth season, despite exiting as a main cast member. Therefore, viewers were hoping for a similar miracle.
Ultimately, Dylan O’Brien’s Stiles is not in ‘Teen Wolf: The Movie.’ ‘The Maze Runner‘ actor explained that he felt satisfied with where he left the character and did not wish to revisit it. However, Stiles is referenced several times in the movie. Moreover, Roscoe, Stiles’ jeep, owned by O’Brien in real-life, is also a major part of the story.
