Mini Bio (1)

Dylan Bruce has established himself well in television. Bruce was born in Vancouver, Canada on April 21, 1980, and raised in both Vancouver and Seattle, Washington. In 2005 Bruce appeared on the mini-series 24: Conspiracy (2005), the spin-off to the original Kiefer Sutherland series 24 (2001). The spin-off lasted for only a season, but the show landed him on the cover of Variety and Bruce continued making frequent television appearances across a steady length of series. Other series in which he has appeared include episodes in the 2005 season of Passions (1999), followed by work in 2006 on Joey (2004), the mob drama The Sopranos (1999), CSI: NY (2004), and Las Vegas (2003). Bruce scored a considerable level of notability by his portrayal of Dr. Chris Hughes on the daytime drama As the World Turns (1956). From 2007-2008, Dylan played this important character, making him the eighth actor to appear in this role, following the departure of actor Bailey Chase who played Hughes from January 2003-January 2005. In 2008, Bruce ended his time on the series and once more moved on to newer projects. He made his official film debut with the fast-paced action outing Unstoppable (2010), which stars veteran actor Denzel Washington and Chris Pine. Afterwards, Dylan had a recurring role on the series The Bay (2010) before landing work in the television movie thriller Willed to Kill (2012). In 2013, Dylan joined the cast of the drama series Orphan Black (2013).

Personal Quotes (2)

Working on a soap opera is such good training for the novice actor. No rehearsal, 120 pages of dialogue per week, and one take to get the scene right. No room for error. I think sometimes soap acting gets an unfair label for being bad and over the top. The lessons I learned there were so valuable. Seeing yourself every day on television, you learned what worked and didn't work, what was bad acting and what wasn't. Memorizing scripts became second nature.
[on his inspiration, Michael J. Fox] He was my hero. I wanted to be him, whether it was dressing in sweaters with a dress shirt and tie, going to school with a briefcase in kindergarten to emulate Alex P. Keaton from 'Family Ties', or wearing a puffy vest and blasting Huey Lewis and the News while skateboarding like Marty McFly, he was it. When I found out from my mom he was a B.C. boy, I knew that acting was for me.
