Dylan O’Brien starrer Love and Monsters has struck a chord with the audience and the fans. In an interview, the actor has opened up about sharing the most screentime with his co-star who happens to be a dog. “Honestly, that was just like one of the greatest parts of the whole thing,” Dylan told CBR.com. “The fact that I had this companion who genuinely means so much to me, that dog — and his double too, Dodge, they were a pair because obviously, they have to relieve each other every now and then — and that little family to me with their trainer and owner as well, Zelie [Bullen], who’s one of the greatest, warmest humans I’ve ever been around in my life.” Love and Monsters Movie Review: Critics are Praising Dylan O’Brien’s Creature Feature.
