Danielle Turchiano recently had an interview with Dylan. Below is part of the interview and you can read the entire interview by clicking the link!
LA TV Insider Examiner: We have to ask the question that’s surely on everyone’s mind. Stiles feels so natural, like you just adlib everything, and Jeff Davis [the showrunner] told us he wants you to co-write an episode next season. In fact, he told us he bought you some screenwriting books in order to do so. So have you cracked them open? Would you be interested in stepping into the writer’s room, even if just as a guest on an episode?
Dylan O’Brien: I did flip through one of them! Oh God, I’m such an asshole. But hey, it’s better than lying, right? [Laughs] It would be such an honor and a privilege. I guess I just never see it happening because I would be too nervous to even present something or some kind of material of writing to Jeff Davis. There’s actually one scene in Teen Wolf that I wrote– yeah, one scene.
Was it something you wrote ahead of time or something you needed to adlib on the spot?
D.O.: We were shooting the rest of the pilot, and there was one scene that Jeff didn’t like, so he sent me something, and he said ‘Send me something back.’ So I sent him something back, and he liked it, and we shot it, so that’s technically one scene of Teen Wolf that I’ve written.
Back in June 2010, Dylan was apart of the 18th Annual Nationwide Young Playwrights Festival Week 1 which was held June 3 – June 6. I believe that the playwright he was apart of was titled “Allan Change Is Totally A Bogus Ghost”, but I could be wrong. Anyways enjoy & don’t forget to watch a new episode of “Teen Wolf” tonight at 10 on MTV!
MULCAHY: Tyler Posey, and a number of other actors, came in to do screen tests. With Tyler, I turned to Jeff and said, “That kid has got the It Factor. I think we found him.” Once we found him, he was definitely the rock to then place the other characters around.
DAVIS: I remember a producer once saying about Mark Wahlberg – when he was Marky Mark, making the transition to Mark Wahlberg, the actor – “You just want to watch him on screen. That’s how you know he’s going to be famous. He’s going to be a great actor.” With Tyler Posey, he definitely has that quality. Crystal Reed is just utterly beautiful, but she also is a phenomenal actor. She can cry on cue. I don’t understand how people can do that. They seem to have an almost supernatural control over their tear ducts. Dylan [O’Brien] is a phenomenal comic actor.
MULCAHY: There are plenty of outtakes, especially from Dylan [O’Brien].
DAVIS: He’s so R-rated, though. But, special features are nice. I’m the kind of person who loves all the DVD extras myself, so look forward to commentary by me and Russell, on certain episodes. We can tell lots of backstories, and there are plenty of make-up effects to look forward to. We’ve taped some really good behind the scenes stuff. I love behind the scenes stuff, myself. I think we did a time lapse of the make-up effects, and we have different types of make-up work in the show.
