Cody Allen Christian (* April 15th, 1995) was born in Maine and grew up in Franklin, a small town in Indiana. When he grew up he felt like wanting to do everything at least once and when watching a commercial for an acting school in Indianapolis, his mom took him there to check it out. During a convention in New York, he got in contact with an agency and finally, in 2005 he moved to Los Angeles, where he gave up being a kid and had to grow up fast. In LA, he got an agency and manager there.
Cody always has been very big into academics and sports like baseball, football, soccer. Over the years he grew into the industry and everyone who worked with him is praising his dedication to acting, his work ethics and how hard and focused he’s working and constantly pushing himself forward.
“One thing I admire a lot about you is your work ethic and I just want to thank you.” – Teen Wolf actor Tyler Posey to Cody
“He’s one of the most professional and well prepared actors on the set! Takes his art incredibly seriously.” – Teen Wolf actor Linden Ashby
“He shows up on time. He’s humble on set. He takes direction well and he’s good at his job. According to everyone, he’s a dream to work with.” – Blogger and wiki owner Paul Virgil Rea who visited the Teen Wolf set several times.
He’s best known for his roles as Mike Montgomery in Pretty Little Liars and Teen Wolf‘s Theo Raeken. Cody currently lives in Los Angeles. Since autumn 2017 he’s in a relationship with model Alex Swift.
His mom, Ashley Bohall, used to live in Los Angeles as well and had and still has his back as much as she could during his career. In 2017, she moved with Cody’s dad (Scott Bohall, who served in the army) back to Indiana. His Brother Joshua is attending the University of Maine in Orono (Computer Engineering).
Native American Roots
From time to time there are rumors and discussions about Cody’s ethnicity since in IMDB, he’s listed as “Native American / Caucasian”.
His grandpa (mother’s side) was full blooded American Native, belonging to the Penobscot tribe while his grandmother (mother’s side too) is half Passamaquody Indian. His mother grew up on a reservation in Maine and she tried to maintain Indian traditions with her children. So Cody grew up surrounded by objects from a Native American tribe’s culture. How much he identifies as Native American or not is a question he has to answer himself but I hope this contributes to getting the facts right.
Apart from acting, Cody’s passions are certainly fitness and rap music. Sports ever have been an important part of his life. In the entertainment industry, physical strength and fitness is a big plus and were indispensable for his roles as Nick Newell in Notorious Nick and Asher Adams in All American.
In his free time, Cody more and more explores his love for performing Rap music. Until now, he only dropped parts of his own tracks during fan conventions and interviews but photos from studios in LA suggest that, in 2019, we will probably be able to listen to the first tunes. But Cody made it clear that his music career is something that he wants to pursue in his free time and will always come second to acting.
In January and May 2018, Cody decided to get his first tattoos.
This first tattoo represents his family. First the rose which stands for his mom, Ashley Rose Bohall. The snake represents his dad Scott Bohall who’s serving in the US Army. The third one is the name of his brother Joshua in digitals, while the last one, the motto “It’s possible”, represents Cody himself.
The second tattoo, which he got four months later, was explained by Cody on his Instagram account:
“Now is a powerful moment to be in. Rather than let my past / future define myself or my actions, I strive to be in a constant “I AM” state.
The crown symbolizes a moment in which I realized my life was my own. My life was in my control. Simple and pretty blatant, but also something we tend to forget at times.”
