2. He claims country music as his guilty pleasure. "I love all forms of music, but there is something so authentic about country, it reminds me of home," Dylan tells Sweety High.

4. Country music may have even inspired him in more ways than one; He plays the harmonica now!

5. He's a summer baby and luckily, most of his hobbies coincide with the season perfectly. Working out, going to the beach with friends, wake boarding and deep sea diving are just a few of his favorite things to do.

6. If you thought he was just an actor, think again. "I love all sides of film, including acting, producing, writing and directing," he said. "I produced a political documentary in 2015."

7. He also loves taking his outdoor activities international. "I have been to Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Korea, France, England, the Netherlands, most of the U.S. and all of Canada," he shared. We are totally jealous, Thailand couldn't be more beautiful!

8. Even though he has traveled all around the world, there's no place like home. "I love spending summers at my family cottage in Fort St. James," he admitted.
