Dylan Arnold, aka Theo on You, Has Fans Intrigued This Season
In season three of You, we're meeting all sorts of new characters that are all bringing the drama. One of the latest faces to join the bunch is Dylan Arnold, who plays Theo. Dylan's character is the hopelessly lovesick neighbor who lives next door to Joe and Love, and his blind infatuation gets him wrapped up into a whole lot of terrifying trouble. Though, this seems to be Dylan's specialty, as you may recognize him from his previous roles in 2018's Halloween and the newly released franchise film Halloween Kills. Fans who have already begun their binge fest of You are curious to learn more about Dylan, so keep reading ahead for some cool, fun facts about the actor!
His Breakout Role Was in After
Before he was Theo on You, Dylan was getting his romance on as Noah in the 2019 film After, which is loosely based on a wildly popular Harry Styles fan-fiction story. Dylan reprised his role in the sequel After We Collided, though he did not return for the third movie After We Fell.
He Snagged a Part in the Halloween Movie Franchise
All the horror-filled twists from You are no match for the scary thrills Dylan experiences in the famous Halloween movie franchise. He snagged a part in Blumhouse's 2018 Halloween, which served as a reboot for the original 1978 film, playing the role of Cameron Elam. He reprises his role in the latest Halloween movie, Halloween Kills, which was released in theaters on Oct. 15.
His Mother Is an Author and Video Game Designer
Dylan's mom might actually be cooler than him! While he's spent his time as a Hollywood actor for the past couple of years, his mother, Laurie B. Arnold, has been busy designing computer games, writing children's books, and even working on scripts for the popular kids' show Dragon Tales. She's designed at least 50 video games and written a trio of picture books, including her latest, Hello There, I'm Coming Home!
He Starred in the Play Good Boys
Dylan isn't just a master of his craft on screen, he's also taken his talents to the stage. In 2019, he joined stage play Good Boys, written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, which put "toxic masculinity and homophobia on blast while unapologetically unpacking white privilege," as reported by Deadline.
He Has a Lot of Love For His Brother
Though he's not very active on Instagram, Dylan does make time to pop up online every now and then to show his family some love, including his older brother Jordan. A few years back, he dedicated a special birthday post to him, writing, "Happy Birthday Bro!! Thanks for putting up with me all these years, and occasionally joining me in my high energy antics. Love you!"
