Tall, (6'2") and handsome brown-haired Canadian import Dylan Neal has worked steadily on American television since the late 1980s. Raised in a suburb of Toronto, the actor attended an academically-focused prep school for most of his education, but found his calling when he transferred to public school halfway through his high school years and found himself in an active drama department, encouraged to pursue a career utilizing his newfound talents.
Dylan made his professional acting debut soon after with a role in the Toronto-filmed TV-movie "After Midnight" (ABC, 1988) and was next featured with a two-episode recurring role as the younger incarnation of the titular hero in the syndicated, animation/live action hybrid series "Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future" in the same year.
Dylan had his first feature film role in the horror sequel "Prom Night III: The Last Kiss" in 1990 and kept busy with roles in series and TV-movies located in Canada. He went to Hollywood for the 1992 and 1993 pilot seasons, but was unable to support himself in the States between castings as his visa permitted him to take acting jobs only.
Dylan got a big break in 1994, when he was cast on the CBS daytime drama "The Bold and the Beautiful" where he portrayed Dylan Shaw until 1997. The steady work soaps offered won over the INS, who granted Neal the required permits for honing his skills in the United States.
While appearing on "The Bold and the Beautiful", he was featured in the Disney Channel TV-movie "Golden Will: The Silken Laumann Story" (1996), a biopic of the eponymous Canadian Olympian.
