Martin Henderson first became a star in his home land, New Zealand, when he starred in the series, Shortland Street, in the early to mid 90s. He then moved to Australia to star in the shortlived soapie, Echo Point, and Sweat, which also starred a very young Heath Ledger. The pair became friends, and Martin convinced Heath to move to Sydney and make a go of his career, and the two lived together. Martin also worked on Home and Away, and Big Sky, as well as getting an AFI Award nomination for his supporting role in the Aussie film Kick. Martin left Australia to study acting and theatre in New York, where he also looked up Heath in LA, who he says has looked after him. Martin now resides in LA also, and is really starting to make his mark.
