If you’re a fan of “Teen Wolf,” then you’re probably a fan of “Stiles” Stilinski, Scott McCall’s best friend and confidant on the teen drama.
Though he isn’t the main character, Stiles is the clever, funny man of the group, who happens to be best friends with a werewolf.
When Scott is bit in the woods and has no idea what bit him or why he’s starting to go through some not-so-normal teenage transformations, Stiles is the one that tells him that a werewolf bit him, and that he will soon become one, too.
Before becoming Scott’s best friend on “Teen Wolf,” O’Brien was a YouTube sensation with a series of comic shorts, which he directed, produced and starred in.
In 2011, he auditioned for “Teen Wolf” while planning to attend college. If he didn’t get a role, he planned to attend to film school to become a cinematographer, like his father.
However, after 4 auditions, he was sent the script for the Scott McCall. After reading over the script, O’Brien was drawn to the best friend, Stiles. He later auditioned for the role of Stiles; the role which he later received and which he has been praised for by Jeff Davis, the creator of “Teen Wolf.”
Although “Teen Wolf” has aired its final episode of season 2 for the Summer, you can catch more of O’Brien this year in a few of his upcoming roles. He will star alongside Will Ferrell (“The Campaign”), Rose Byrne (“X-Men: First Class”) and Owen Wilson (“Midnight in Paris”) in “The Internship,” where two laid-off men in their 40s try to make it as interns at a successful Internet company where their managers are in their 20s.
Earlier this year, he was the lead role in “The First Time,” which centers on the first weekend of a fledging romance between two high school kids. The film also stars Britt Robertson (“Triple Dog”), Craig Roberts (“Being Human”) and Christine Taylor (“Tropic Thunder”).
Until then and until season 3 of “Teen Wolf, enjoy these ever-so-flattering pictures of O’Brien.
