Raised in Lewisville, Texas by renowned acting teacher Cathryn Sullivan, Cody Linley's love for acting began before he could speak! By age 4, he booked his first professional commercial job. And by age 8, Cody had booked his first feature film - the heartwarming "My Dog Skip." Cody loved the filming process so much he realized acting would be his life-long passion.


Cody is most recognized for his role as 'Jake Ryan' - the love interest of Miley Cyrus in "Hannah Montana." He has been cast in over a dozen feature films including "Miss Congeniality", "Where The Heart Is", "Cheaper By The Dozen", "Rebound", "Hoot" and "Hoovey." His T.V. credits include "That's So Raven", "Hannah Montana", "Dancing With the Stars", "Melissa & Joey", and many more. Cody is also an award-winning voice over artist.


At an early age, Cody started working alongside his mother at her acting studio in the Dallas area, Cathryn Sullivan's Acting For Film. After assisting in classes for many years, at age 15 Cody started teaching his own class. Cody continues to expand his acting skills by working in class, on set, and in the theatre. He loves to inspire today's youth to believe in themselves, to believe that anything is possible, to enjoy the process, and to stay committed.


He is honored to now be a part of the #CBYAS team!
