Zac Efron might be the star of the family, but another Efron has been slowly gaining recognition. Zac’s younger brother, Dylan, isn’t exactly a Hollywood sensation, but his status on Instagram – and his passion for his hobbies – are nothing to be scoffed at. Maybe he’ll become a big star like his brother, even if he is getting a late start at 29 years old.

There’s some stuff we know about Dylan, but not as much as we’d like. What we do know is that he is incredibly close to his brother. Dylan also uses his social media influence to promote a positive lifestyle. He’s very active and seems to be an all-around nice guy.
