Martin Henderson is a New Zealand actor best known for his starring role as Dr. Ben Keeton in the medical drama television series Off the Map, in 2011.

Born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand, Henderson was introduced to acting when Strangers, a local televisions program, held an open casting call at his elementary school.

He was thirteen years old when he was cast in this series and he has been acting professionally ever since.

He then went on to star in the New Zealand soapie Shortland Street, for three years.

In 1993 Henderson was nominated for and won the Best Male Dramatic Performance in a Television Show award at the New Zealand Television and Film Awards for his role as Stuart on Shortland Street.

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.

Henderson spent more than a year unsuccessfully auditioning for film roles in Los Angeles, but in 2001, he was cast in a supporting role in the John Woo-directed war film, Windtalkers.

In 2002, he starred opposite actress Naomi Watts in the horror film, The Ring. Following the box office success of the film, Henderson was cast as the lead character in the biker film, Torque, which was released in early 2004 to mixed reviews.

In 2005, he starred opposite Indian actress Aishwarya Rai in the romantic film Bride & Prejudice, and in the award-winning Little Fish starring Cate Blanchett.

Henderson has also appeared in Britney Spears' music video for the single, Toxic.

He was set to star, along side Jordana Brewster, in the television series adapted from the 2005 movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith, but it never made it beyond the pilot.
