I just wanted a job. I didn’t really have any expectations for what that job would be seeing as though I never had one before as an actor and so I was just happy to get anything. And to get such a successful series and something that’s become so close to me and you know, like my family, and to be able to get to play the character that I do…I’m just so grateful for it all. - Dylan O’Brien [X]
I just adopted a new pitbull puppy, he’s a rescue. He was about to be put down and he had a broken leg and stuff, so I adopted him and got his leg fixed which was nice. But yeah he’s the best dog in the world. Yeah, I named him Driver. I love the movie drive and I was like oh that’s Ryan Gosling’s character and his name was just Driver. So I was like alright, my dogs name is Driver.
”I am also deeply grateful to my partner, Misha Collins, for surprising me with writing-break field trips to the L.A. river during rainstorms, for offering insightful comments on seemingly countless drafts, for fixing the printer on a near daily basis, for building a beautiful place for me to work, for making me laugh when I thought I couldn’t, and for sustaining me when I got discouraged. His patience, love, and support have meant everything to me.”
