Bio For: Dylan O'Brien
(The Latest Available Bio)

A dynamic young actor, DYLAN O'BRIEN is quickly emerging as one of Hollywood's brightest talents. In January 2018, he will reprise his role as Thomas in The Death Cure, the third film in the popular Maze Runner franchise. Adapted by Fox from James Dashner's novel of the same title, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, follows Thomas and friends as they search for a cure to a virus that turns people into zombies in a post- apocalyptic world.

The Maze Runner series is not the only time that O'Brien has led a big screen adaptation of a best-selling book to the screen. Earlier this year, O'Brien starred in American Assassin, from CBS Films and Lionsgate, based on Vince Flynn's best-selling book series. In the film, O'Brien plays Mitch Rapp, the popular protagonist of Flynn's novels. When his fiancé is killed in a terrorist attack, Rapp embarks on a quest for vigilante justice and is then recruited by the CIA, where he's trained by veteran operative Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton).

Also this year, O'Brien wrapped a run on the hit MTV television series Teen Wolf, a reimagining of the 1980's cult film of the same title. He became a fan favorite on the show as Stiles, whose best friend Scott McCall was turned into the teen wolf. Teen Wolf finished its sixth and final season in Summer 2017. Previously, O'Brien appeared opposite Mark Wahlberg in the Lionsgate feature film Deepwater Horizon (2016). That film, directed by Peter Berg, recounts the true story of the 2010 BP oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. O'Brien plays Caleb Holloway, the youngest crewmember aboard the doomed rig when the disaster occurred.

In 2013, O'Brien was featured in the Fox comedy The Internship, directed by Shawn Levy and starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as two down on their luck salesman who get internships at Google only to find themselves competing for jobs with much younger, tech-savvy interns there.

Prior to that, O'Brien starred opposite Britt Robertson and Victoria Justice in the feature film The First Time (2012) for director Jon Kasdan. The First Time is a romantic comedy in the vein of Say Anything that follows two high school students through the first weekend of their newfound love. The film premiered in competition at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and was released by Sony in Fall 2012.

His first feature film role was in the 2011 entirely improvised independent film High Road directed by Upright Citizens Brigade co-founder Matt Walsh and co-starring veteran comedic actors Horatio Sanz, Rob Riggle, Abby Elliott and Lizzy Caplan.

O'Brien was first discovered via YouTube in a series of comic online shorts, which he directed, produced and starred in. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
