1. They Met on the Set of ‘The First Time’
Britt and Dylan met on the set of the romantic comedy film The First Time. In the movie, Britt plays Aubrey Miller, who meets shy senior Dave Hodgman, played by O’Brien, and the two fall in love over one the course of a single weekend. The film also stars Victoria Justice, who plays the popular girl Dave has a crush on– until he meets Aubrey.
In 2013, the cast spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the film and the audience’s reaction to it.
In an interview with Hollywire, Britt discussed her experience on set. Asked about the romantic element of the film, she dished, “The first time Dylan and I did a kissing scene, it was our first kissing scene that we filmed, and I was just like, ‘John, I do not feel good about this!’ And I was right, because we ended up filming it again the next day. Maybe I was just so nervous I wasn’t in the moment… but we got it right eventually. And then we just got really good at kissing.” Britt joked, “Can we just kiss all the time, please?”
When Dylan spoke to Hollywire about shooting the sex scenes in the film, he said that he was nervous as well, but it ended up being easier than he thought it would. “You get through it. And there were times where John had to say, ‘Hey guys, let’s get serious.'”
2. There Were Rumors the Two Are Engaged
Last week, someone hacked Britt’s Instagram account and said she and O’Brien were engaged. The caption on the post read, “Yes, we are officially engaged. #Brylan is real confirmed by Chikri.”

4. They Aren’t Bothered by One Another’s Hectic Schedule
Most celebrity couple’s end up breaking up because of their demanding schedules and the fact that they can never see one another. Luckily, Britt and Dylan enjoy having chaotic lives and say it doesn’t hinder their relationship.
Speaking to Teen.com in 2015, Britt was asked how she keeps the romance alive sine they’re both busy filming all the time. She said, “You know, you just find the time to be with one another. Truthfully, I think it helps that we both have our work going on at the same time. It keeps us satisfied and separate from each other. Having time together becomes a bonus.”
5. Britt Once Flew Thousands of Miles to See Him Over Gas
In January, Dylan gave Britt a call, saying he felt sick. She thought he was suffering from appendicitis, and advised Dylan to go to the hospital. She then caught a flight to see him.
Speaking to Clevver TV, she said, “It ended up being… I shouldn’t be telling this story. It’s a terrible story. I thought he had an appendix that was rupturing.”
“It was not the appendix,” she added. “It was a gas issue.”
