Dylan O'Brien Opens Up About Getting Back to Work After 'Maze Runner' Injury

After being badly injured on the set of Maze Runner, getting back to work was no easy task for Dylan O’Brien.

The 25-year-old actor joined the cast of American Assassin toward the end of his recovery and it ended up being extremely helpful to his healing.

“The state that you’re in after something like that, you just want to run from all that stuff. I didn’t really even want to leave my couch necessarily when I was allowed to. So, yeah. It was a big step doing this,” Dylan explained to ET.

He added, “I ultimately decided that I wanted to try it and I didn’t want to let it go.[American Assassin] ended up being really instrumental in the whole process.”

“At the time that I came in…I was still at the very end of recovery there when I started, so that was probably the biggest challenge. All the training was very good for my mind and very good for recovery, in a way…It really ended up being [therapeutic]. It came at a great time for me,” Dylan said.
