Turns out, he’s been in a ton of movies and TV shows in a variety of genres. One of Henderson's first projects was playing Geoff Thomas in the long-running Australian soap opera, Home and Away. In 2002, he starred opposite Naomi Watts in the horror mystery, The Ring (which, according to Henderson, was a part he didn’t need to audition for).
Two years later, (ready for this) he landed what would turn out to be an unforgettable cameo in Britney Spears's "Toxic" music video. And up until 2015, he starred in a handful of films and shows including Smokin' Aces, Off the Map, Secrets and Lies and Everest. Perhaps one of his most iconic roles (pre-Virgin River, of course) was his two-year stint as Meredith's love interest, Dr. Nathan Riggs, on Grey's Anatomy, from 2015 to 2017. His most recent movie appearance was in a horror film called X.
So that’s why he looked so familiar.
