Walsh was born Dylan Charles Hunter Walsh in Los Angeles, California. His maternal grandfather, Frank P. Haven, was a managing editor of the Los Angeles Times. His parents worked for the Foreign Service—they met in Ethiopia. As a result, Walsh lived in Kenya, India, Pakistan and Indonesia as a boy. His family returned to the United States when he was ten years old and settled in Virginia, where Walsh began acting in high school. He graduated from the University of Virginia in 1986 with a degree in English. After graduating from college, Walsh moved to New York City to act professionally.
Walsh's first role was in a television movie called Soldier Boys with James Earl Jones. He then landed a role in the movie Loverboy and a regular role on the television series Kate & Allie. In 1989, he started using the name Dylan Walsh professionally. He continued to work in films including Betsy's Wedding, Nobody's Fool, Congo, The Stepfather, and Secretariat, and guest starred the television series Brooklyn South, The Twilight Zone, and Everwood.
In 2003, Walsh landed the role of Sean McNamara on the television series Nip/Tuck, after being approached by series creator Ryan Murphy in a coffee shop. Murphy remembered him from his role in Nobody's Fool and in a television movie. Walsh also appeared on the series Unforgettable.
Walsh was married from 1996 to 2003 to actress Melora Walters, with whom he had two children, Thomas Walsh born in 1996 and Joanna Walsh born in 1997. The couple later divorced, and, on October 10, 2004, Walsh married actress Joanna Going, with whom he has a daughter Stella Walsh born in 2003. In 2010 Walsh announced he filed for divorce. Walsh met Leslie Bourque and had a daughter Amélie Belle, and a son, Hudson Scott.. Walsh and Bourque are still together in 2020.
