Dylan O’Brien is an incredible actor. For anyone who is a moviegoer or even if someone is not, I highly recommend watching the movies, TV shows, and anything else that O’Brien is in.

I found out about O’Brien when I watched the movie “The Maze Runner.” Honestly, I was scared to watch it because someone told me it was scary, and I am not the biggest fan of scary movies, especially back when I was in seventh or eighth grade. Little did I know that watching this movie would make me learn about this amazing actor who became my favorite.

As I was watching the movie I was scared because I was anticipating that it was going to be scary because of how someone described the movie, but it really was not.

I was not planning on watching “The Maze Runner,” but I was at a friend’s house and we watched it and I am so glad we did because I loved it. After watching “The Maze Runner” I looked O’Brien up and found out he was in a TV show called “Teen Wolf.”

I watched “Teen Wolf” and I absolutely loved it. O’Brien’s character is Stiles Stilinski. His character is so funny and smart. “Teen Wolf” has comedy, romance, and action, and at times it had me worried about what would happen next.

I love “Teen Wolf” so much that years ago during the summer when I went to California, I visited some of the filming locations. As someone who is a huge fan of the show, I was extremely happy and excited to visit these places. It was really cool to see these filming locations, they looked so familiar because I’ve seen it from the show, and to actually be there was amazing.

One of the places I visited was the Glen Capri Motel to take a picture because that was one of the places “Teen Wolf” was filmed. Another place I visited was Palisades Charter High School which is the high school that “Teen Wolf” filmed at, but in the show, the high school they went to is called Beacon Hills.

When I visited, we asked an employee who worked there if I could look around and take some photos because I love the show. He was so kind and showed us a classroom that they filmed in and let me take photos in different areas that I recognized from the show. With some of the photos I took, if someone watches the show they will be able to tell that it was taken where “Teen Wolf” was filmed.

When we were leaving the school I remember all of a sudden I saw a jeep driving down the road at a distance. In “Teen Wolf,” O’Brien’s character drives a jeep and the jeep that was driving down the road looked just like it. So I stopped and took my camera out to take a photo. It’s something so minor but I thought it was really cool since we were at the school they filmed at and I saw a jeep that looked like his character’s.

O’Brien starred in Taylor Swift’s short film “All Too Well.” He starred alongside “Stranger Things” star Sadie Sink. The short film is incredible and so are Sink, and O’Brien in the short film. Swift is incredible as well, she directed it and also starred in the film.

When it premiered for the very first time on YouTube I watched it as it came out. After watching it for the first time, I watched it two other times that night when I shared it with others.

O’Brien also played the drums in Swift’s song “Snow On The Beach” and was one of the people cheering in her song “Question…?”

O’Brien also has a YouTube channel and he began posting videos on there before he became an actor. One of the videos he has is called “True Wannabe…” and it is hilarious. O’Brien has a good sense of humor. The first time I watched this video was years ago, so I don’t remember my initial reaction, but I have seen it many times since and it’s funny. O’Brien’s timing and reactions are great.

There have been sequels to the movie “The Maze Runner” which are “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” and “Maze Runner: The Death Cure.” I saw “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” in theaters two times. This series has a lot of action in it.

Some other movies O’Brien has been in are “American Assassin” which is also action-filled, “The First Time” a rom-com, and “The Outfit” which is based in Chicago. I thought it was cool that it was based in Chicago since we are in the Chicago land area. It was cool to see O’Brien play a character like the one he played in this movie and he also had a Chicago accent.

Deepwater Horizon” is a drama movie that is based on the actual event, “The Internship” is a funny movie, and “Love and Monsters” is another movie O’Brien has been in. I have seen “American Assassin,” “Deepwater Horizon,” and “The Outfit” in theaters.

My favorite character he has played is Stiles Stilinski in “Teen Wolf,” I just love his character. I think he is hilarious, he is also really smart and his character has such a great personality.

I think O’Brien is an underrated actor, he deserves so much more credit and accolades.

He has been in other movies and TV shows that I did not touch on. Take a look at his IMDb page, I highly recommend watching anything that he is in. O’Brien has shown his range and does amazing each time with whatever he does. I would love to meet him one day, and not that I’m an actress, but I would love to act alongside him.
