Kelson Henderson


Kelson Henderson has amassed a long CV of screen roles, from comics to superheroes. After graduating from acting school Toi Whakaari in 1997, he appeared in two high profile TV shows early in his career: as horse trader Pony Joe in sci fi hit The Tribe, and as a suicidal patient of Shortland Street, who gets talked off a rooftop only to see the woman who saved him die. Since then, Henderson's roles have included comedian Peter Rowley in Billy T James chronicle Billy, reporter Phil Kitchin in acclaimed TV movie Consent - The Louise Nicholas Story, plus a range of roles and voice parts on the Power Rangers franchise.

In some ways, I think it's because I'm so average. I'm white middle-class, not too big, not too short. And I guess it's maybe because I'm eager. Kelson Henderson on why he was being offered lots of acting roles, Pavement, April 2001, page 16
