Series star Dylan Minnette: This is the reason for his acting break

“13 Reasons Why” star Dylan Minnette is not currently active as an actor. That’s why he no longer feels inspired to do so.

In 2017, he gained international fame as an actor through his role as Clay Jensen in the Netflix series “13 Reasons Why”. Today, however, Dylan Minnette (27) is no longer active in this profession. He (31) now reveals why he took a break from acting and is instead currently concentrating on his career as a musician with his band Wallows.

“I was lucky enough to have success as an actor,” said Minnette in the podcast episode, which also featured his bandmates Braeden Lemasters (28) and Cole Preston (27). “I was in ’13 Reasons Why’, which was really popular, and that was definitely the peak of my acting career. But it also started to feel a bit like a job.” It was always fun and inspiring, but at some point it was just work.

Dylan Minnette feels more inspired by music

At the same time, he and his band dreamed of “going as far as we can” with music. That is also the reason why his acting career is currently on hold: “The only way that makes that possible is if I put 100 percent of my time and energy into music, take it very seriously and show the world that we all take it very seriously.” He is simply following his passion for music, “which feels natural and inspiring at the moment.”

However, Minnette also emphasized in the podcast that he is still thinking about returning to the screen at some point. Last year, for example, he wanted to take time out for his acting career, but it was during this period that the actors’ strikes in Hollywood occurred. He feels like he is slowly starting to feel inspired again as an actor: “At some point, when we have fulfilled our Wallows duties and we are all ready to take a break as a band, then I will have the perfect inspiration to do something again.”

His career as an actor

Dylan Minnette had his very first roles in film and television at the age of eight: in 2005 he played a guest role in “Drake & Josh” and in “Two and a Half Men”. He also appeared in the series “Prison Break” during these years. In 2008 he made his breakthrough in the USA with a role in the crime series “Saving Grace”. From 2017 to 2020 the drama series “13 Reasons Why” (original title: “13 Reasons Why”) was finally released, based on the novel of the same name by Jay Asher (48). In it Minnette played one of the main roles alongside Katherine Langford (28) as Hannah Baker. He was most recently seen in “Scream” and the series “The Dropout” in 2022.
