RelativesCole Sprouse (twin brother)

Dylan Thomas Sprouse[1] (born August 4, 1992)[1] is an American actor and entrepreneur. He is the twin brother of Cole Sprouse and is known for his role as Zack Martin on the Disney Channel series The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and its spin-off, The Suite Life on Deck.

He is also the co-founder of a New York meadery called All-Wise Meadery.[2]

Early life[edit]

Sprouse was born in Arezzo, Italy, to Matthew Sprouse and Melanie Wright.[3][4] Dylan was born 15 minutes before his younger twin brother Cole Sprouse.[5] Four months after their birth, the family moved back to their parents' native Long Beach, California.[3]

Career[edit]

Sprouse started his career in 1993 on television, alongside his twin brother Cole Sprouse, sharing the role of Patrick Kelly in Grace Under Fire until 1998. For the next several years, he continued to appear in several films and television series with his brother. Sprouse co-starred alongside his brother in the Disney Channel series The Suite Life of Zack & Cody from 2005 to 2008. In 2017, he was cast in the thriller film Dismissed as the lead role of Lucas Ward.[6] In the same year, he booked a short film Carte Blanche and was cast in comedy film Banana Split as Nick.[7][8] The following year he joined a short film Daddy as Paul and the Chinese film Turandot opposite actress Guan Xiaotong as the character Calaf.[9]

In 2020, Sprouse starred as Trevor in After We Collided, the sequel to the 2019 film After.[10]

In May 2020, it was announced that Heavy Metal and DiGa Studios would be releasing the first issue of Sprouse's comic book Sun Eater.[11]

Education and entrepreneurship[edit]

Following the end of The Suite Life on Deck in 2011, Sprouse attended New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study and obtained a four-year degree in video game design.[12] He has identified as a Heathen since age 15.[13] In 2018, Sprouse opened All-Wise Meadery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn,[14][15] the name of which is a reference to his Heathen religion.[16]

Filmography[edit]

With the exception of Piggy Banks and Snow Buddies, all appearances prior to 2017 were either roles shared with Cole Sprouse—that is, in which the two portrayed one single character—or projects on which they both worked but portrayed separate characters.
