Samantha met Dylan Sprayberry while filming the show Teen Wolf for The CW. She was hired in the show in 2013 and appeared in three episodes in the fourth season. This was also the time Dylan Sprayberry was hired in the show, and the two shared the fourth episode of the show together and while filming, they fell in love.
There was a photo she shared of the two together in 2013 Christmas which means they've been together for almost seven years. She posted an amazing photo of the two together during Valentine's Day, doing pottery together.
Dylan Sprayberry and Samantha Logan were involved in a relationship.
But the thing is, since then the two appear to be on radio silence when it comes to sharing their images together on Instagram. They are not deleting the pictures on their respective pages, but neither are the two sharing any more new images. It's been almost eight months, and the two appear to be broken up with the actress unfollowing Dylan while he still follows her on Instagram.
The six years of relationship seemingly came to an end this year, which is a bummer considering how great the two were together, but not all relationships are meant to go the distance.
