    Dylan O'Brien gets "slightly irritable" doing stunt work after being injured on the set of 'Maze Runner: The Death Cure'

    The 29-year-old actor suffered "concussion, a facial fracture and lacerations" after being hurled from a moving vehicle and hit by another car while shooting the movie in 2016 and he admitted the scary accident has had a lasting effect on him


    Dylan admitted he is much more vigilant about safety on set now, but he still suffers with anxiety as a result of the trauma.

    He told Variety: "Whenever I’m putting on a rig, I’m vetting every piece of that rig and much more.

    "Even to this day, if I’m on set and I’m doing a stunt, if I’m in a rig, if there’s some action going on, I am slightly irritable.

    “There is a degree of anxiety in me that I don’t think there’s ever not going to be."

    Dylan admitted the incident also made him cherish the people around him a lot more and he has a different outlook on life now.

    He said: "I had friends that were so dear to me that I had felt that I had neglected for years.

    “All of a sudden, it was very important to me to nurture those relationships and not lose them.

    “I think that it absolutely completely rewires and restructures the way you see your life and what you deem important."

    A year after the accident, the actor admitted it had left him in a "really fragile, vulnerable state”.

    He said in September 2017: “I didn’t want anyone in my business and you get angry about it and you’re already angry.

    “I’ve gotten to a place where I’m OK with it, but it was definitely a rough year.”
