Dylan Benson was born on July 1, 1994 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. He is the son of Greg Benson and Amanda Benson who are both actors and previously long-time stars on Australia's number one soap opera, Home and Away. This is where they met and eventually got married.
At the age of 15, Dylan featured in his first TV commercial. With a taste for getting in front of the camera, he showed some interest but was focused on studying finance and economics at the time. In 2014, he would sign with one of Australia's biggest modeling agencies, Chic Management. He would go on to feature on the cover of Cosmopolitan Bride, walk at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia, and shoot for companies such as Guess, Cosmopolitan, Colgate, Levis, Top Man and many more.
During his time modeling, he met renowned Film and TV coach, Les Chantery, and voice coach, Gabrielle Rogers. It was then that he knew his heart lied in acting. He continued his studies at The University of Sydney with a major in Finance but his main focus became acting. He has since spent many years studying the craft of acting. Dylan is still training with Les Chantery for Film and TV and recently gave stand-up comedy a go
In 2019, Dylan Benson would book a guest role on Home and Away. According to That Moment In, Dylan described it as "an amazing experience to achieve a goal he had worked so many years on and to feature on the same show as his parents"
Dylan has always admired Margot Robbie and Heath Ledger, who both started their careers on Australian soap operas. They have inspired him with their level of dedication and discipline to their craft to then become some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Dylan currently resides in New York City continuing to work on his career in Acting and trains with Bob Krakower
