Teen wolf

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 13 DECEMBER -

dy­lan o’brien’s teen wolf (2011-cur­rent) character stiles stilin­ski is the “un­coolest” cool guy in bea­con hills high. he’s clumsy around girls and tries ev­ery full moon to stop his were­wolf buddy scott mccall (tyler posey) from chew­ing up his friends and en­e­mies. poor stiles is a geek and the character isn’t far off from real life dy­lan. “there are so many geeky things about me,” says 23-year-old dy­lan. “i mean, i geek out about base­ball and the x fac­tor. and i’m a star wars geek.” he loves mu­sic and drummed for the band slow kids at play, which formed in fe­bru­ary 2009. “we had pop­punk el­e­ments but more of a beachy reg­gae vibe.” un­for­tu­nately dy­lan had to call it quits in early 2013 due to his busy act­ing sched­ule. for teen wolf, he first au­di­tioned for the lead role of scott but says that “when read­ing the script, i couldn’t help but keep want­ing to read the stiles parts. i was like, ‘this guy is freak­ing awe­some.’ i’m way more like stiles than scott!” good decision, dy­lan. un­like stiles, dy­lan has bet­ter luck with girls. he’s been dat­ing britt robert­son from un­der the dome (2013cur­rent; she plays angie mcalis­ter). they met while film­ing 2012 rom­com flick the first time. “she’s the coolest chick i’ve ever met. she’s laid­back and funny,” he gushes. in his down­time, dy­lan goes bowl­ing, plays with his dogs buddy and clyde, and watches friends (1994-2004). “i’ve seen ev­ery episode of friends at least 11 times,” he con­fesses. be­fore teen wolf, dy­lan’s only claim to fame was his quirky home­made youtube videos, in­clud­ing a mem­o­rable one of him singing the spice girls 1996 hit song wannabe. it’s still on­line if you want to watch and gig­gle… the good guy does have a flaw, he ad­mits: “i bite my fin­ger­nails.”
