Asher Adams in “All American”
In The CW’s drama “All American,” Cody Christian stars as Asher Adams, a young man whose past choices have affected his future more than he knows. After a life altering revelation that he can no longer play football, Asher is determined to put his mistakes behind him and find a new path going forward. However, it’s harder to let go of football than he ever thought it could be.
Christian was born in Bangor, Maine, and moved to Los Angeles at age nine, after hearing a radio ad searching for kids who played football to audition for a commercial. He went from short films to commercials and modeling, to television shows and then major motion pictures.
His first major role in a theatrical film was the role of Boy Cantor in “Surrogates,” opposite Bruce Willis. His performance in the challenging role of an older-aged robot manifested young Christian’s growth as an actor. Christian starred in Peter Safran’s film “The Starving Games” and the film “Assassination Nation,” as well as the title role Nick Newell in the feature film “Notorious Nick.”
Christian has had several guest-starring television roles on major series such as “True Blood,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Body of Proof” as well as a recurring role on “Supah Ninjas.” He is best known for his roles on “Teen Wolf” and “Pretty Little Liars.”
