Dylan O’Brien, star of MTV’s hit show Teen Wolf: The Chronicles of Stiles Stilinski (no, I refuse to accept that that’s not its official name), is the star of the highly anticipated movie, The Maze Runner. Banking on the success of the recent trend of movies with dystopian futures (The Hunger Games, Divergent), The Maze Runner is based on the YA novel of the same name, appealing to the tween, teen and young adult audience which makes these films such blockbusters. I’ve never read The Maze Runner, but I’m absolutely planning on doing so before the movie comes out… and you know for sure that I’m going to go see it, because you can’t go wrong with Dylan O’Brien and YA fiction.
Dylan is featured in Teen Vogue’s September issue, and while I don’t think it’s as big a deal as American Vogue’s September issue, it’s still great to see him featured in any capacity. For the spread, he compares his widely-beloved Teen Wolf character, Stiles, and his new The Maze Runner character, Thomas. Thomas, he indicates, is more of an introverted and pensive person, while Stiles (as we all know) is an over-the-top hilarious pile of awesomeness. Dylan O’Brien is often the highlight of Teen Wolf, and his acting skills were really showcased last season with the whole nogitsunei story line. It will be really interesting to see his portrayal of such a different character in The Maze Runner.
