Dylan O’Brien is an American actor. He is known for his lead role as Thomas in the dystopian science-fiction adventure trilogy ‘The Maze Runner’ and for his role as Stiles Stilinski in the MTV television series ‘Teen Wolf’. His other work includes starring in films such as ‘The First Time’ and ‘American Assassin’, and supporting roles in ‘The Internship’ and ‘Deepwater Horizon’.
Before beginning his career in acting, O’Brien produced, directed and starred in a number of comedic short films which he released through his personal YouTube channel. He was also the drummer for the independent rock band ‘Slow Kids at Play’.
O’Brien went through several auditions before getting one of the main roles in MTV’s ‘Teen Wolf’, a series loosely based on the 1985 film of the same name. He had been intended to play Scott, but after reading the script, O’Brien wanted to audition for the part of Stiles instead. In 2011, he was introduced to audiences in the entirely improvised independent comedy film ‘High Road’. The following year, he starred opposite Britt Robertson in the romantic comedy ‘The First Time’.
In 2013, O’Brien co-starred in the comedy film ‘The Internship’. That same year, O’Brien filmed ‘The Maze Runner’ which began filming in summer 2013, while he was on hiatus from ‘Teen Wolf’. He played Thomas, the lead role. Yahoo! Movies named him as one of the 15 Breakout Stars to Watch for in 2014. He reprised the role of Thomas in ‘Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials’, released in September 18, 2015.
In 2016, O’Brien was injured on set while filming a scene for ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’. After a few months of recovery, he eventually began filming other projects, and his March 2017 return to ‘The Death Cure’ set marked his complete return to health. He also appeared in the disaster thriller-drama ‘Deepwater Horizon’, based on the 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion. He starred in 2017’s ‘American Assassin’, an action-thriller in which he played the titular character Mitch Rapp and voiced the CGI titular character in the ‘Transformers’ spin-off film ‘Bumblebee’ in 2018.
