Dillon was born in Germany to a German father and a Czech mother. As a result he grew up bilingually. Dillon's mother was reported to Soviet authorities when the Czech Republic was still a satellite state of the Soviet Union and came to West Germany as a refugee.
At the age of 18, Dillon left Germany to study acting at the William Esper Studio in New York City. He won the Green Card Lottery and received the incredible opportunity to stay and live in the United States and pursue his childhood dream of being an actor. Dillon also writes and has intentions of directing his own projects.
