As soon as you realize that Dylan Bruce draws his inspiration from the phenomenal Canadian-American actor and film producer, Michael J. Fox, you will understand why it’s as though he would stop at nothing to assert himself in the industry. To a large extent, Bruce has been utterly ruthless in his pursuit of a career in acting. A good instance of this was in 2008 when he stirred quite a controversy in an attempt to take over Jay Kenneth Johnson’s role as Philip Kiriakis in the popular daytime series, Days of Our Lives. As it happened, Jay was having a hard time in making a deal with the producers of the show when Dylan auditioned for the role in case the former actor didn’t reach an agreement with the producers. While a good number of people would agree that it was an uncool move, it goes to show how determined the actor is.
Over the years, the Canadian actor has been able to prove himself a fine actor, appearing in more than a handful of TV roles and a few movies. As his fame has been on the increase, it is only natural that more and more people are interested in knowing more about his career and personal life. Here’s a concise description of the actor’s life, containing answers to some of the questions often asked about him.

The actor earned his degree in Drama and Economic from the public research university in Seattle, Washington – University of Washington. Following his graduation, he relocated to Los Angeles, California to intensify his pursuit of a career in acting. But before then, he had already established himself as a model in Seattle.
