  • Dylan originally auditioned for the part of Young Derek in Season 3, but he was deemed to be too young at the time.
  • Dylan was nominated for a Saturn Award ("Best Performance by a Younger Actor") for his role in Man of Steel.
  • Dylan is notable on Teen Wolf for being the youngest of the main cast and the only underage main cast member on set, which makes him nearly the same age as the character he is playing (Liam is almost sixteen on the show, whereas Dylan is seventeen years old as of Season 5). Conversely, the rest of the main cast members who are playing high-school-aged characters are much older, ranging from nineteen to thirty years of age.
    • Casting directors typically hire overage actors to play teenagers because child actors, by law, must be supervised by a parent or guardian on set and can only work a certain amount of hours at a time, which can often cause difficulties during filming. However, Dylan will be turning eighteen years old in July 2016, after which point he will no longer be a minor and will no longer be bound by these legal restrictions.
  • He is dating Samantha Logan who played Violet on the show.
