Dylan Riley Snyder stars in "Kickin' It" on Disney XD as awkward honors student Milton David Krupnick, who sneaks away from his French horn lessons and enrolls in martial arts to gain self confidence.

Dylan Riley Snyder was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Four days after his birth, he began attending rehearsals with his mother and sister in a children's production of "Winnie the Pooh." His sister Cassidy, 11 years older, was excited about having a baby brother, and as he grew she took him everywhere…

meaning from one staged rehearsal to another. She was involved in many activities including musical theater, so when he took his first baby steps on the stage it wasn't a surprise and began his acting roles at 18 months.

The family soon found out that he enjoyed being on the stage and began letting him audition at the tender age of 5, where he won his first speaking role as Tiny Tim, in "A Christmas Carol." He was spotted by a University graduate student, Tina Fitch, in the production… so when he auditioned at the University of Alabama for the role of Buster in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," she already knew of his potential. At his audition he recited the Preamble to the Constitution and received a standing ovation. From that day on… he was a steady force at the University anytime they needed a child actor. Even after to moving from Alabama to Mississippi, he was called on to perform in a University production of "Assassins" the role of Billy Moore. His singing with the Mississippi Boy Choir enabled him to sing the different parts of the score and Dylan walked into the first rehearsal with full knowledge of the difficult Stephen Sondheim arrangements. Dylan was also in "Pippin" at the University of Alabama, as well as "Peter Pan" and "To Kill a Mockingbird" with Theatre Tuscaloosa.

It was at this time Hurricane Katrina had come onshore and put the city of Petal, Mississippi, into a state of limbo. Dylan's family moved him back to Alabama where his sister was attending college and settled in until things could be restored in Mississippi. Dylan attended his rehearsals and that's when Tina Fitch suggested that while he was on this "break" that he should try things out in New York. She said he had a "true naturalness" and that the family should give him a chance to see if this is what he really wants to do.

From August until January, preparations were being made to make the big move to New York and on Dylan's ninth birthday he and his mother settled into a Manhattan apartment. Leaving family and friends behind was a big adjustment. With their love and support Dylan was thrilled to call home and let them know of his first Broadway show booking in Disney's musical, "Tarzan," as Young Tarzan.

Most recently, he appeared at Signature Theatre and Hartford Stage's off-Broadway production of the critically acclaimed and award winning nine part epic series "Orphans' Home Cycle" portraying the Pulitzer Prize winning author, Horton Foote, as a young boy.

Snyder made his film debut in the award-winning short film "Valley of the Moon." He also starred opposite Allison Janney in "Life During Wartime" which won Best Screenplay at the 2009 Venice Film Festival, was an official selection at the 2009 Telluride, Toronto and New York Film Festivals. In 2010, Snyder and the cast of "Life During Wartime" were nominated for "Best Ensemble Performance" at the Gotham Independent Film Awards. His television credits include guest roles on "The Wonder Pets!" and "Sesame Street."

During production, he resides in Los Angeles with his mother while his dad and sister remain back home. A former member of Boy Scouts of America and Broadway Kids Care, Snyder enjoys solving Rubik cubes, origami, juggling, billiards, chess and school.
