A year ago, Dylan had a live chat session via Crushable, giving advice to young people looking to become actors.
He told us that as an actor, one of the biggest lessons he’s learned is that “before you can play any other character, you have to know how to be you.”
He also gave advice to a current film student saying that “the entertainment business is based off creativity, so keep an open mind to new ideas that might not seem normal.” To aspiring actors, Dylan said that the most important thing is committing to a character and that “the process used to develop that character must be very creative… otherwise, it gets very boring.”
5. Dylan Got Peer Pressured Into Getting Twitter
Before finding fame, Dylan was not a big social media guy and didn’t have Twitter until he got some heat from fans. MTV tells the story of how Dylan got Twitter:
My friend Devin Fox had an event and I went up on stage and the host was like, “Dylan doesn’t have a Twitter,” and I was like “Oh yeah, no. I don’t.” And everyone was like “Ahh no! You have to get a Twitter!” The whole crowd was like, “You got to get a Twitter.” So then I did. I have a Twitter now.
