Date of Birth: July 28, 1985

Dustin Milligan was born in Yellowknife, North West Territories, where he spent much of his early life. Being a natural ham led him to the drama program in his high school where he discovered his true love of acting and his desire to become a professional actor. As soon as he graduated he moved to Vancouver to pursue his dream, and never looked back. He soon found success—his first screen role was in the TV movie Perfect Romance (2004). Guest appearances on TV series and roles in other TV movies followed, including The Days, Dead Like Me, Hush, Amber Frey: Witness for the Prosecution, A Perfect Note and Da Vinci's City Hall.

His first feature film role was playing the younger teen version of a lead character in The Long Weekend (2005). In 2006 he was seen in Man About Town starring Ben Affleck. Also in 2006, Dustin landed a regular role in the new CW Network's series Runaway. His career skyrocketed, with roles in major Hollywood flicks such as In the Land of Women (2007) starring Meg Ryan and The Messengers (2007) opposite Kristen Stewart.

Though Dustin unsuccessfully auditioned for the part of Edward in Twilight, losing out to Robert Pattinson, his career didn't falter. In 2008 he joined the cast of the brand new CW series 90210, which immediately became a hit. He played Ethan Ward for one season, then moved back into film work with features such as Extract (2009) starring Jason Bateman, Ben Affleck and Mila Kunis, and Gunless (2010) with Paul Gross. Dustin followed that up with a starring role in Shark Night 3D (2011) opposite Sara Paxton. He most recently starred in No Clue (2014) alongside Brent Butt.

When not acting Dustin can usually be found on his skateboard or on the slopes with his sister Molly, who is a professional snowboarder.
