On 27 June, Cody and his PR Sean hopped on a plane to Paris on the occasion of the HATM convention, organized by Ultimevents.fr.
Since he arrived a couple of days before the convention, Cody used his spare time to visit museums and places in Paris, such as the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. Some fans even ran into him and gave him a little tour through the museum, guiding him to Da Vinci’s famous painting Mona Lisa (La Joconde).
“Found two great tour guides at the Lourve today! Thanks for the help!”
When Cody entered the hall, everyone screamed the loudest.
The highly anticipated day finally came. On 1st July, Cody attended the French Teen Wolf Convention along with some of his fellow cast members – Shelley Hennig, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Dylan Sprayberry, Ian Bohen, Linden Ashby, Susan Walters, Ryan Kelley as well as Charlie and Max Carver.
The convention began with a slight delay due to Holland’s flight not being on time. When Cody entered the hall, everyone screamed the loudest.

The actors’ activities were scheduled as the following: Autographs, Solo/Duo photo shoots, meeting rooms and panels. Cody had two meeting rooms since he certainly was one of the most popular actors.

His signing sessions actually took the longest, especially the one on Sunday.
It was supposed to take place from 10 AM till 12:15 PM, but he was still signing until way past 2:30 PM. He did not even have a real lunch break and kept working so hard so that everyone had the chance to talk with him and get their desired autograph.
He took his time with everyone and did not rush at all, thanking them for coming and for their support. Every time a fan was standing at his table, he was completely focused on them. Absorbed. It was like you literally were alone with him, blending everyone else out. Despite the time pressure, Cody was never in a rush. Everybody had the chance to talk to him. Tears were shed, teenagers screamed, trembling. Cody was so gentle to them, comforting and reassuring them.

His first meeting room took place on Saturday afternoon. Cody was simply amazing, talked freely and casually with everyone, even played an extract from his upcoming rap song. However, Cody does not intend to pursue a music career. He simply loves to write songs, get in the flow whilst working on one for hours. It’s a hobby, his passion and started with writing poetry when he was younger.
“At the age of 25, I’m gonna get an Oscar.”
The young man was vibrant, full of energy and genuine. Furthermore, Cody addressed the importance of dreams. When he was a teenager, he kept telling himself: “At the age of 25, I’m gonna get an Oscar.” Even if we fall, we always need to get back up. No matter how hard it seems, we can do it. “It’s possible,” he said.

Cody was also very kind and welcoming at the photo shoots. He shook hands or hugged everyone who approached him and made some small talk, asked questions.
To conclude, there are no words capable of describing how amazing Cody Christian really is. But let’s try these: Humble. Genuine. Completely down to earth. Meeting him is certainly something that you will keep in mind. A very positive memory.
