Natasha Henstridge Profile, Age, Weight, Family, Affairs, Biography & More
Natasha Henstridge is a Canadian actress and model. In 1995, Natasha Henstridge came to prominence with her debut role in the science fiction thriller Species, followed by performances in Species II and Species III. Natasha Henstridge has since starred in a string of films and television series, including Maximum Risk (1996), The Whole Nine Yards (2000), The Whole Ten Yards (2004), Ghosts of Mars (2001), She Spies (2002–2004) , Eli Stone (2008–2009), and Would Be Kings (2008). For the latter, she won the Gemini Award for Best Actress. Since 2019, she has been starring in the CBC Television series Diggstown.
At age 14, Henstridge entered the Casablanca Modeling Agency’s Look of the Year contest and was chosen first runner-up. The following year, she went to Paris to pursue her modeling ambitions. At age 15, she was featured on her first magazine cover, the French edition of Cosmopolitan. Several more magazine covers followed and Henstridge went on to do television commercials for products such as Olay, Old Spice and Lady Stetson. With her modeling career established, Henstridge started doing commercials and decided she preferred acting. One of her first roles was as “Foxy Fox” in the Missoula Children’s Theater production of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” staged in Fort McMurray, Alberta.
In her film debut Species (1995), Henstridge played Sil, a genetically engineered alien/human hybrid created from a message received by SETI, who breaks free from the captivity of a laboratory. Pursued by a team of experts who band together to stop her before she reproduces, Sil embarks on a killing spree while also discovering her powerful instinct to mate.
Species was an instant hit, making US$113 million at the box office. Notable for its sexual content, the film won Henstridge the MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss for a scene in which her character, while kissing a date, impales his head with her tongue. In 1998, she played Eve, a more ambiguous genetic duplicate of Sil, in Species II, which was a failure at the box office. Between Species films, Henstridge starred in two low budget action films in 1996, Adrenalin: Fear the Rush with Christopher Lambert, and Maximum Risk opposite Jean-Claude Van Damme.
A few smaller independent movies followed, including Bela Donna and Dog Park, with varied box office returns. Henstridge starred in the film The Whole Nine Yards (2000) and its sequel The Whole Ten Yards (2004). Despite having some reservations about the science fiction genre, she signed up for John Carpenter’s Ghosts of Mars (2001) in the lead role of Lieutenant Melanie Ballard. The film was not well received, with a 20% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In 2004, she briefly appeared as Eve in Species III.
In 2007, Henstridge was a festival judge at the first annual Noor Iranian Film Festival.
