Martin Henderson's acting career began when Strangers, a local kids' show in Auckland, came to his school for an open casting call.
With seven TV series on his résumé, Henderson was 25 when he made his feature film debut with a supporting role in Kick, a rather awful Australian movie about a rugby player who yearns to dance ballet.
After that, Henderson moved to America, where he studied at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theater in New York, and worked on losing his down-under accent.
