Hi there! My name is Cody Kennedy and I've been a working actor + writer for over 25 years. I created Cody Coaches to privately coach and self tape actors all across the country. My students have booked countless film and television roles. I'm a no BS kind of coach, and only want you to put your best performance forward!

I'm a Groundlings trained performer that has studied technique with prominent coaches and casting directors such as Stan Kirsch, Michael Woolson, Margie Haber, Eden Bernardy, Mark Teschner, Jamie Renee Smith, Christy Dooley, Marnie Saitta, K.C. Clyde, John Homa, Andrew Magarian, Scott Sedita, John Kirby, Conchata Ferrell, etc. I am an alumna of UCLA’s USPA sitcom acting program and have been mentored by the legendary television show runner, Chuck Lorre. I have a B.A. in Communication from USC. Fight on!

You may know me from my roles on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FXX), The Suite Life on Deck (DISNEY), Rizzoli & Isles (TNT), The Runaways (MARVEL/HULU), The Family Business (BET+), The Muppets (ABC), Casual (HULU), Earth to Ned (DISNEY+), Law & Order (NBC), NCIS (CBS), CSI:NY (CBS), etc. Currently, I play Dr. Janine Fritz as a recurring guest star on BET's drama, The Family Business.
