Acting is something I came upon and I really, really, really love now. I want to be as best as I can at it and, I also want to be the best person I can be, I think those two correlate. I’ve always really believed that in acting, you progress as you progress as a person so that comes first. You grow as an actor if you grow as a person, If you’re not growing as a human being then I don’t see how you can progress as an actor. So constantly be better as a person. I’m not perfect at all, and I will never be. I also don’t think I’ll be a perfect actor I just think they’re very similar. My dreams in life that I want [..] to just be good. (♥)
Happy 26th Birthday, Dylan O’Brien! (Born 26, August 1991).
Christian is the kind of actor that throws things at you, things that aren’t written in the scene that really end up helping you a lot. In the scene on the cliff where I’m crying, I didn’t even know that I was going to be crying that much in that scene, it just kind of happened in the first take. It was because of the help from Christian and how he was doing it with me. He cares so much and gives it so much passion. He hugs Clay at the end of that scene but that wasn’t written in the scene. Christian just did that and it’s those little things that he would do. At the end of episode 9 where I’m freaking out and kicking my bike and then I sit down and play tape 10, and he comes over and sits next to me — that wasn’t in the script either. He just does these things that end up taking these scenes to the next level and makes you care about their friendship so much more. - Dylan Minnette
“You should just keep it simple and never be torn up by anything that’s out of your hands. Because what you realize being in this business, so much of it is. And I’m actually glad I was sort of ignorant to that. Starting I had a different fire, different passion about it. I was going in to get every job. And whereas now I know the odds are insane. So it’s really about because you love doing this. Whatever it is you wanna do. Stay passionate about it, stay fearless. And don’t care what people think.” - Happy 26th Birthday, Dylan O'Brien!!!
