Tyler Posey In ‘My Hero’
Tyler’s hero is his mom!
His mother, who is a breast cancer survivor, serves as the Teen Wolf leading man’s ultimate woman of courage. Tyler took the opportunity to honor his mother in the newest episode of My Hero and explains to us how he got involved with the special series.
“My mom wanted to be very open about what she was going through and I have been wanting to do something really sweet for her,” Tyler told HollywoodLife.com. “So it was just perfect timing! I really really wanted to get on board with it.”
Tyler also reveals how his mother has been there every step of the way in his acting career — from Maid in Manhattan to Teen Wolf!
“It was basically just me and her when I started acting,” Tyler continued. “She’d travel with me wherever I would go. And be with me. She’d keep my head on my shoulders. And made sure I didn’t become a punk! That’s kind of where she’s influenced me in terms of my career. Always be humble, and look back on those moments when you were nobody.”
