Life and career Edit
Hailing from Dover, Kent, England, Henry moved to the United States in 1997. She made her film debut that same year, portraying the aide to President Lindberg (played by Tommy “Tiny” Lister, Jr.) in the hit science fiction adventure The Fifth Element.
Henry later appeared in Woody Allen’s 1998 comedy Celebrity, which also featured Famke Janssen, Bebe Neuwirth and Winona Ryder – the latter of whom appeared in Star Trek in separate scenes from Henry. She guest-starred in an episode of the CBS Paramount Television series Without a Trace, starring Enrique Murciano.
