LOS ANGELES (AP) – Dylan O’Brien says that sticking with his lead role in the action movie “American Assassin” helped him recover from a traumatic accident during filming of a “Maze Runner” sequel in March 2016.
O’Brien told The Associated Press on Monday that being back on a set was a necessary step in his recovery. He said at times after the accident he felt like he wasn’t going to be able to return to filming, but he didn’t want to let acting go.
The 25-year-old “Teen Wolf” star has remained largely out of view and hasn’t publicly discussed the accident or extent of his injuries, which were serious enough to halt production on the film, subtitled “The Death Cure,” for nearly a year.
He began shooting “American Assassin” last fall while still recovering.
