MARTIN HENDERSON (Noah) most
recently co-starred in John Woo's World War II drama "Windtalkers,"
playing the inexperienced young soldier longing to go home to the girl he left
behind. He will next be seen starring in the motorcycle racing actioner
"Torque," in which he stars opposite Ice Cube.
Born and raised in Auckland, New
Zealand, Henderson was introduced to acting when the local television program
"Strangers" held an open casting call at his school. He was cast in
the series at the age of 13, and has been acting professionally ever since. He
went on to star in the New Zealand drama series "Shortland Street" for
three years, winning a New Zealand Television and Film Award in the category of
Best Male Dramatic Performance in a Television Show in 1993.
In 1995, Henderson moved to Sydney,
Australia, where he landed the role of a young athlete training for the Olympics
in the series "Sweat." He later made his feature film debut opposite
Rahda Mitchell in "Kick," a film set in the world of the Sydney
ballet. Henderson received an Australian Film Institute Award for Best
Performance in a Supporting Role for his work in "Kick."
Following that film, Henderson decided
to pursue his career in the United States. Moving to New York in 1999, he began
a two-year training program at the Neighborhood Playhouse. He also appeared in
several stage productions, including the off-Broadway play "Ophelia Thinks
Harder" at the Samuel Beckett Theatre.
