Martin attended the Birkenhead Primary School and then Westlake Boys’ High School in Auckland. During this time, he was interested in sports and used to play rugby for the team in school.

After moving to Australia, Henderson became close friends with Heath Ledger, a famous actor who played The Joker in The Dark Knight (2008). The guys moved to Sydney and decided to live together as roommates.

In 1997, the actor moved to the United States to make a career in Hollywood and to attend a special program at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in New York.
In 1999, Henderson appeared in Kick which can be called as one of his best movies and for that role he got his first nomination for an Award for the Best Actor in a Supporting Role. In 2002, he starred together with Naomi Watts in the horror movie The Ring. In 2004, Martin had the leading roles in the Torque and Bride and Prejudice, a Bollywood-style adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel. Also that year, the actor appeared in Britney Spears’ Toxic music video.
In 2008, Henderson was seen in a commercial for the Cadillac CTS and in one episode of the House, a medical drama. Shonda Rhimes, the author of another medical TV series, Grey's Anatomy, created the series Off the Map (2011), where Martin starred.

If we look at Henderson’s interviews, we will be able to show you his dating history. Martin has been in relationships with Marnette Patterson, Nicky Watson, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Radha Mitchell (who sometimes can be wrongly connected to another actress, Elizabeth Mitchell) and Demi Moore.
