The Year's Most Unexpected Action Hero: Buzzfeed features Dylan

Buzzfeed did a fantastic feature, "The Year's Most Unexpected Action Hero" of Dylan covering Teen Wolf, TMR, his fan base, and much more.

Here are some highlights: 

On the hype of the film:
I never thought about the size of the movie. Cut to a year later and the first question I’m getting from everyone is, So this movie is gonna blow up, what are you going to do? It never felt that way. It was an underdog script and an under-the-radar project with all relatively up-and-coming actors — we don’t have anyone in the movie like Kate Winslet [Divergent] or Donald Sutherland or Phillip Seymour Hoffman [The Hunger Games]. So it always felt super small to us, but we always knew it could exist amongst those because it’s so good.

On his fans:
 It blows me away. In a way, I can never fully understand it because I don’t know if I’m wired that way. But what makes me feel good about it is I’m bringing them happiness and that I can relate to.

On his career-starting YouTube videos:
I never even thought about deleting them. It’s not like I keep them up because they’re really good. Obviously, I look at those videos and cringe. But those videos were my life back then — and what started my career.

On his shy demeanor:
I’m very private and don’t particularly thrive off being the center of attention. Everyone I meet is like, ‘You? Shy? Quit yanking me.’ But I think people can work in ways [that] contradict how they are as a person. This is my job, this is what I do, and I’m so grateful. I love to do it and I feel good at it, but at the same time, it very much combats the person in me who is only comfortable with certain people. I still am, innately, a very shy person.
