Dylan Tays relationship with the media goes back to her days on the screen as an actress. She became popular for movie roles in Mr. & Mrs. Smith among others. She did several guest appearances on the 80s and 90’s successful series Seinfeld’s.
The actress has been off the screen in recent years leading to questions about herself and her love life. She is the subject of a writer’s fantasy even as she inspired the storyline behind a particular movie script.
Her Early Life And How She Started Acting
Dylan was born Danette Michelle Tays on May 5, 1971, in Los Angeles, California. Many other sources claim her real name to be Danette Vlaco. She attended school at San Pedro High School in California. Details about her early life are very scarce.
It is not clear if she started acting at a very young age or not but at the time she made it to the movies, she was already an adult.
Her Love life with Alec Berg
The juicy detail about her love life is not well known. The closest anyone came to finding out her love life is linked to a romance she had with Alec Berg. Alec Berg who is an American comedy writer and one of the writers of Seinfeld, had an idea of taking Dylan out to the Oscars.
Alec Berg asked her to attend the Oscars with him but later found out it would not be possible because she had a boyfriend. He did not find it funny when he arrived to pick his date and made this shocking realization.
When he made the proposal for her to accompany him, they did not have an idea that their about-to-end romance will be told as a movie script.
This encounter became the inspiration behind one of the episodes of Seinfeld, The Summer of George. The episode is one of the most liked among Jerry’s girlfriends in the Seinfeld series. Years later, Berg talked about the incident in a behind the scene interview for the Summer of George episode of Seinfeld.
Though the identity of the woman in question was not revealed, many viewers of the 90s show made a connection.
