It was a dark and… sexy night… July 28th, 1985 to be precise…The night Dustin Milligan was born (a whopping 14.3 lbs!) in the tiny northern town of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada.
Growing up in the isolated ice-world of Canada’s almost-arctic, Dustin was able to nurture his overwhelming desire for attention through school plays and community theatre, most notably in his tone-deaf turns as “Danny” in Grease! and “Tony” in Saturday Night Fever. It was the scene work in-between these heartbreaking and ear-aching songs that finally pushed Dustin over the edge and down into the beautiful bottomless pit that is acting, forever.
At age 18, he packed up Mum’s station wagon and made the move South to Vancouver, British Columbia, (also in Canada) landing himself a sweet, sweet agent and his first jobs as a professional actor within weeks. Since then, Dustin has performed in numerous films including “In The Land of Women” starring Kristen Stewart, Meg Ryan and Adam Brody, “The Messengers” starring once again Kristen Stewart, Dylan McDermott and Penelope Ann Miller, and starred alongside “The O.C.”’s Kelly Rowan in the CTV Movie of the Week “Eight Days to Live”. His episodic credits include guest stars on “Dead Like Me”, “The Dead Zone”, “Supernatural”, the short-lived CW drama “Runaway”, and he’s all over Season One of “90210″.
Currently, Dustin resides somewhere in or around the Los Angeles area, what’s it to you? You can catch him in theatres soon in the upcoming Mike Judge film “Extract”, due out in 2009.
