Bio

Dylan Neal is a Canadian actor best known for his television roles as Dylan Shaw on The Bold and the Beautiful, Doug Witter on Dawson's Creek, Detective Mike Celluci in Blood Ties, Aaron Jacobs on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and Dr. Anthony Ivo on Arrow.

Neal was born in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada. Shortly thereafter, his family moved to Oakville, just west of Toronto, where he spent the remainder of his childhood.

As a young student, he attended the prep school, Appleby College, where he was introduced to the game of squash. Dylan quickly fell in love with the sport and was soon playing for Canada at an international level.

Towards the end of his teenage years, after many years of traveling across North America on the amateur squash circuit, Dylan decided a professional squash career was not for him.

By this time, Dylan was attending Blakelock High School, where he was enrolled in the drama program. At the urging of his drama teacher, Dylan signed with a Toronto talent agent and began auditioning professionally. It didn't take long for Dylan to realise this was the direction his career would take.

In 1992, Dylan moved to Los Angeles where his career quickly took off. He lived in Los Angeles until 2006, when he and his family moved to Vancouver for the production of the Lifetime television series Blood Ties. In 2011, Dylan and his family returned to Los Angeles.

Neal is a well-recognised face on television having had series regular roles in a number of American television series, including The Bold and the Beautiful, Aaron Spelling's Pacific Palisades, Hyperion Bay and Blood Ties.

Dylan has had many major recurring roles including his five-year stint on Dawson's Creek playing Joshua Jackson's brother, Doug Witter and as Aaron on Sabrina the Teenage Witch opposite Melissa Joan Hart.

He has had the good fortune of working opposite some of the biggest names in Hollywood and in 2012 was offered the male lead role of Jack Griffith opposite Andie Macowell, in the television series Cedar Cove. The series is based on international best selling author Debbie Macomber's series of books of the same name.

In 2013 he began a recurring role on the superhero fantasy series Arrow and was cast in Fifty Shades of Grey, the film based on the popular erotic novel, as Anastasia Steele's stepfather.

His career has allowed him to travel extensively for work, filming in locations such as Israel, Germany, China, The Caribbean, and all throughout North America.

When not on set, Dylan is busy teaching acting in both Vancouver and Los Angeles where he has a growing client list. In his down time, Dylan enjoys spending as much time as he can with his family and friends.

On occasion, he can also be spotted in his workshop, where Dylan, an avid wood-worker, has for years recreated 18th and 19th century period furniture.
