Speaking about his early childhood, soon after Dylan was born his family relocated to Boundary Bay in Canada, where he grew-up in a large and close-knit family, as he has a brother and two sisters. Beside his interest in sports and various outdoor activities, he was also passionate about theatre and the world of entertainment. Thus he participated in several theatre productions while he was in high school. That was his first real experience with acting and drama, and through these school productions he developed a true passion that would ultimately become his dream job. One of his earliest idols was Michael J. Fox; Dylan admitted that he copied behavior, clothing styles and antics from Fox’s most famous roles throughout his childhood. After finding out that Fox is also a British Columbia native, he was certain that acting was the right choice for him. Fortunately for young Dylan, his family was always supportive of his choices, and encouraged him every step of the way. After he matriculated from high school, he decided to follow his dreams and moved to the US – he was accepted by the University of Washington in Seattle, however, he didn’t want to focus solely on acting, so he decided to study Economics as well as Drama, and graduated with honors after four years of study. While at the University, he had the opportunity to work with Jon Jory, former Artistic Director of Actor’s Theater of Louisville, and bruce credits the training he received under Jory as highly influential on his skills as an actor. Before venturing fully into the world of entertainment, he slowly made his way into the business by modelling through Seattle Models Guild – in 2004 he appeared on the cover of the November issue of “Daily Variety” magazine. Having graduated from college, he moved from Seattle to Los Angeles to further pursue his acting career.
Bruce got his first acting gig in 2005, in a spin-off of the popular FOX drama “24”, called “24: Conspiracy”, playing an agent investigating a widespread government conspiracy during 24 one-minute installments. After that, it did not take long for Dylan to book quite an impressive resume of guest appearances on some of the most popular television series at the time, such as “CSI: NY”, “The Sopranos” and “NCIS”. In 2007 he landed his first leading role as Dr. Chris Hughes in the soap opera “As the World Turns”, playing the role through 2008, after which he was made his big screen debut in “Unstoppable” alongside Denzel Washington, Chris Pine and Rosario Dawson. He continued to make numerous guest appearances in television series, as well as landing recurring roles as Brian Nelson in “The Bay”, and Adam Donner in “Arrow”.
