Dylan Kingwell was born in Vancouver, British Colombia Canada, on 6 July 2004, so his zodiac sign is Cancer, and he holds Canadian nationality. Dylan is a teen actor, who became popular after being invited to star in “The Returned” TV series.
Early Life and Education
Dylan was raised in Vancouver alongside one younger and one older sister, by his mother who is a chef, and his father who is a banker. Dylan has been very sociable since he was three, as he would often go with his mother to Starbucks and would randomly approach people, introducing himself and talking to them.
Seeing him being that social gave his parents the idea to enroll him at acting classes, and they also went around searching for talent agents who would let him appear in a commercial on even TV series. One talent agent gave him a shot, and after hearing Dylan recite a children’s picture book from memory, he was given an opportunity to show his acting skills in a commercial for Hasbro, for Candy Land Castle.
Career as an Actor
Dylan’s career as an actor was launched in 2011 when he was seven, making his debut film appearance in “To the Mat”, which follows an ex-wrestler as he tries to keep his family’s wrestling school above water with the help of a consultant.
He won his next role in 2013 in “The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet”, portraying Little Boy, before sappearing in a single episode of “The Tomorrow People” TV series.

Also in 2015 he appeared in three Christmas films – “Wish Upon a Christmas”, “The Christmas Note”, and “Ice Sculpture Christmas”, and starred in a single episode of the “Supernatural” TV series.
The year 2016 saw him appear in just one movie – “The Wilding”, but then Dylan won several roles in 2017, such as those in the films “Campfire Kiss”, “Manny Dearest”, and the “Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library”, while he also appeared in “The Good Doctor” TV series.
