So how does the Derek/Stiles relationship relate to your friendship with Tyler Hoechlin?
I love the Derek and Stiles dynamic, and as soon as I read that episode, we were so excited to shoot it! But the dynamic in real life… it’s totally different, but it’s funny! We always describe it like me and Tyler are Chandler and Joey from Friends, and Tyler Hoechlin is Richard- you know what I mean? So we’re just infatuated with the guy, and we have so much love for him, and he kinda just rolls his eyes all the time at our 19-year-old knuckleheaded-ness! But he loves us too, man. So we’re buddies. And we’re both big baseball guys, so I have all my big sports talks with Hoechlin. - Dylan (2011)
Dylan: I think [Derek]’s the whole reason why Stiles just now understands how serious this whole world is. He was almost excited when he found out Scott was a wolf, and Derek kind of has made him realize just to be careful. (x)
