Biography

Blonde and statuesque, with the grace and confidence to back up her stunning appearance, actress Natasha Henstridge successfully transitioned from cover model to young starlet, eventually settling into a respectable career as a working actress in both film and on television. After placing high in an international modeling contest, Henstridge went on to grace the covers of fashion magazines and appear in dozens of commercials. Her film debut came with the science fiction thriller "Species" (1995), cast as Sil, the deadly by-product of alien and human bio-engineering. From there, Henstridge went on to star in several film and TV movies - among them the Jean-Claude Van Damme slugfest "Maximum Risk" (1996), the sub-par sequel "Species II" (1998), and the Homerian adventure "Jason and the Argonauts" (NBC, 2000). She had a supporting role in the Ben Affleck/Gwyneth Paltrow tearjerker "Bounce" (2000), just prior to showing her comedic chops in "The Whole Nine Yards" (2000), opposite Matthew Perry. Although Henstridge followed these projects with the lead in "John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars" (2001), the film proved to be a disappointment with both fans and critics. She reappeared on television as one of the stars of the short lived action series "She Spies" (NBC, 2002-04), before reprising her role in the sequel "The Whole Ten Yards" (2004), and making recurring guest turns on shows like "Eli Stone" (ABC, 2007-09) and "Drop Dead Diva" (Lifetime, 2009- ). While never achieving the level of A-list actress, Henstridge found her niche playing beautiful, intelligent, confident characters in a wide array of projects, both large and small.

Bonus Trivia

.

"Where is this 'Hollywood scene,' where is it? I'd like to find it one day. If I want to go out and have a good time, I go to New York. That's where my friends are and that's where you can go out to good clubs. Here, I swear, in two years I haven't even been out dancing once." - Henstridge quoted in Sky magazine, September 1996

.

"It doesn't get any worse than the modeling industry. It's much more fun to do a photo shoot as an actress. They're much nicer to you. 'What do you want to wear? What do you want to do?' is a lot better than 'get in that position. Hold it! HOLD IT!'" - Henstridge to Premiere magazine, June 1995
