Early life

Dylan was born in New York City, his parents were both involved in the art and acting industry. His father, Patrick O’Brien, worked as a camera operator, while his mother, Lisa Rhodes, worked as an actress on several projects, and also was the head of an acting school.

Up until he turned 12, his family lived in New Jersey, and then they moved to California. After graduating high school, O’Brien was considering a career in sports broadcasting, and even working for the New York Mets.

When he was 14, he created his own YouTube channel, where he posted everyday content. As a result, a producer offered him a role on a TV show, ‘Teen Wolf’. After starting to work on the series, he was introduced to an actor, who introduced him to his manager.

Dylan changed his sports broadcasting major at Syracuse University, to start off his acting career.


When Dylan was asked to come in for an audition for ‘Teen Wolf’, he had no acting experience whatsoever. As a result, he had to go through multiple auditions before finally getting the role of Stiles.

O’Brien was initially considered for the lead role of Scott, but after reading the script, Dylan himself decided he wanted the role of Stiles. Filming for ‘Teen Wolf’ started in 2010, and the first season was released in 2011.

He made his debut in the film industry with the comedy ‘High Road’ in 2011, and in 2012, he played a part in a rom-com, ‘The First Time’.

After ‘Teen Wolf’ finished filming in 2013, he got a part in another comedy - ‘The Internship’.

That same year, O’Brien got the role in one of his most famous movies - ‘The Maze Runner’. After the movie was released, Yahoo! Movies named him one of the ‘15 Breakout Stars to Watch for in 2014’.

He played the role of Thomas again in the ‘Maze Runner’ sequel - ‘Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials’ in 2015. While working on the third part of the ‘Maze Runner’, O’Brien got seriously injured by falling from a moving vehicle and getting hit by another moving vehicle. He had to undergo facial surgery due to facial fractures, a concussion, and brain trauma.

The movie shooting had to be paused due to his injuries for a whole year, and the ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ movie finally premiered in 2018.

In 2016, Dylan appeared in the ‘Deepwater Horizon’ movie, followed by ‘American Assassin’ in 2017. He took on a bit different role in 2018, by voicing the main CGI character - ‘Bumblebee’ in the self-titled movie.

He played in the mystery thriller ‘Flashback’, released in 2020, and the post-apocalyptic ‘Love and Monsters’.

In the past year, Dylan O’Brien has been working on ‘The Outfit’, ‘Not Okay’, and ‘The Vanishings at Caddo Lake’. He is expected to make a guest appearance on ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’.

Personal Life

Dylan O’Brien has been quite private about his dating life and history, and he hasn’t really made many comments about the people he has dated.

On the set of ‘The First Time’ in 2012, O’Brien met Britt Robertson, and they soon started dating. They made many public appearances during the time they were together, but after six years of dating, the couple officially split up in 2018.

Later in 2018, Dylan was spotted with Chloë Grace Moretz on several dates, which reportedly, were full of PDA. O’Brien had named Chloë as his ‘celebrity crush’ seven years before they were seen hanging out together, and a friend of theirs mentioned they were quite flirty at the time when the photographs had shown up.

In 2020, a lot of rumors surfaced as a result of Dylan and Sarah Ramos posting a flirty scene on Instagram. They were quickly proven wrong because Sarah got married to Matt Spicer later that year.

Earlier this year, Dylan O’Brien was seen on a date in L.A. with the ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ actress, Chloe Bennet. Neither of them addressed the dating rumors, so we can’t know for sure if any romantic involvement actually occurred.

In September 2022, Dylan was seen kissing Sabrina Carpenter in New York City. Even though they haven’t addressed any rumors, their fan base was quick to speculate the relationship was, in fact, evolving.


Dylan O’Brien started off his career by playing around and being himself on his YouTube channel, ‘moviekidd826’. His channel is still active, and his videos are still up, with millions of views.

Several new Dylan O’Brien movies have been finished already, and are in the post-production phase.

His estimated net worth as of 2022 is $7 million. His relationship status remains non-confirmed by him personally.
