    From the old forum (12/2020)
    .
    Don’t call it a comeback–he’s been here for years. LOL!…And so have his fans…because he’s got integrity and talent to spare…he’s f*cking HOT (beautiful inside and out)…hilarious (extremely witty)…curious (about nature, human nature, cooking, etc.) and compassionate (kind and steady), among other positive things, and so far he hasn’t done anything publicly stupid or crazy. LOL!…I’ve been all in since ‘The Ring.’…Can’t really claim “Day One” status because I was born in America and never got to see his early stuff in New Zealand (‘Strangers,’ ‘Shortland Street’) or Oz (inc. ‘Sweat’ with late great mate Heath Ledger)…All this to say: the man is poetry and possibility…Martin Henderson is perfect…I mean…he’s OKAY I guess…LOL!…

    ‘Virgin River’ offers nice break from 2020, series’ co-stars say
    .

    By C.L. Gaber | Special to the Las Vegas Review-Journal
    November 22, 2020 – 8:15 am
    .
    What is love?
    .
    In a town called “Virgin River,” it’s not a man who wines and dines Melinda “Mel” Monroe, a nurse practitioner who has relocated to a remote California town. Instead, he remodels her rundown cabin.
    .
    “You got a guy who is not only smoking hot,” says 38-year-old star Alexandra Breckenridge (“This Is Us”), “but he is happy to resurface her floors. If that ain’t love, I don’t know what is these days!”
    .
    Martin Henderson (“Grey’s Anatomy”), 46, who plays sexy barkeep and home improvement expert Jack, retorts: “I have told several guys, ‘Look, Jack isn’t fair to any of us. He presents regular men as lesser beings.’ Even I’m asking myself, ‘How can I live up to my screen self with my real-life girlfriend.’ She’s bound to be disappointed.”
    .
    Based on a best-selling book series by Henderson author Robyn Carr, “Virgin River” turns up the heat during a second season of 10 episodes debuting Nov. 27 on Netflix.
    .

    Set in a town where everybody knows your name, the plot revolves around unrequited lust, an unplanned pregnancy and a side order of murder. Then there are Mel and Jack, two damaged people who find out love in the woods might just be an antidote to 2020.
    .
    Review-Journal: What kind of interaction have you had with Robyn Carr?
    .
    Martin Henderson: She came to the set at the end of Season 1 and we sat down and had a long chat about Jack. It was really cool. She was a smart, fun lady, and it was a great chance to talk about the show and meet the creator of this world. She had watched a few episodes and it felt great to hear that we had her approval.
    .
    Alexandra Breckenridge: I loved the books. Robyn did come to the set … but unfortunately, I had to fly home for a family emergency. I did meet her at a later time and she was very lovely.
    .

    What is the appeal of “Virgin River?”
    .
    Breckenridge: It’s an escape in 2020. You’re watching these beautiful people in this beautiful location. They’re falling in love as she’s overcoming her grief. My character moves to this small town to get away from it all and this is the ideal place to start again.
    .
    Henderson: It’s such a cozy fantasy, which is part of the appeal. We live in a time of so much uncertainty and divisiveness. Here is a show about coming together, simple values and a small town.
    .
    Mel has been through the ringer emotionally and Jack has PTSD.
    .
    Henderson: Mel and Jack are on islands emotionally when they first meet. He’s flawed and grappling with pain. … Both Mel and Jack have their own grief, which they subconsciously recognize within each other. They want to heal and bond, but there are a bunch of obstacles, including his ex-girlfriend in town is pregnant.
    .
    There is that pregnant ex-girlfriend.
    .
    Henderson: There are two options: She moves out of town or we keep her around to just play it out. I think the goal is to keep the audience loving to hate her. The best part is it’s nice and complicated.
    .
    Breckenridge: Audiences love to hate poor, pregnant Charmaine Roberts (Lauren Hammersley), which is a testament to Lauren’s acting.

    .
    How do you explain the chemistry between Mel and Jack?
    .
    Breckenridge: We got really lucky. You never know who you’re going to have chemistry with until you get there on set. With us, it just works.
    .
    What is your idea of an ideal Sunday? And how have you spent the pandemic?
    .
    Henderson: I feel guilty saying it, but I took off on my sailboat — my ideal Sunday — in Mexico last spring before the pandemic began. I was planning on spending a few months on the water. Then COVID hit and I began to closely monitor the news as things went from bad to worse. … It turned into a seven-month vacation just sailing around, but I was safe. I even met a girl when I hit land. Life became really good. Obviously, the death tolls and terrible economic times weigh heavily on me. But it has also brought people together.
    .
    Breckenridge: I’ve been trying to be happy. I spend weekends making sourdough like everyone else who has picked up a bread baking habit. A lot of cooking and reorganizing. I have two little kids and it has kept me really busy. They’re 3 and 4. … And then right before the pandemic, my husband went to Australia because he plays for Katy Perry. He got home in March right before the lockdown happened. He literally got home the day before the lockdown. It was just terrifying wondering if he’d get home.
    .
    For Alex: Kevin on “This Is Us” vs. Jack from “Virgin River.” Who is the better man?
    .
    Breckenridge: I think Jack might have one up on Kevin from “This Is Us.” … As for the women, Sophie has emotional complexities, but she’s much lighter as a person. Mel carries a lot more weight. When I’m able to go back to “This Is Us,” it’s a relief. It’s not a lot of heavy lifting.
    .
    There is so much “This Is Us” buzz about who Kevin Pearson will eventually marry. Are you rooting for Sophie among the few contenders? The nation seems to be #TeamSophie.
    .
    Breckenridge: The nation is rooting for Sophie. The other day, I saw an Instagram post where Justin asked fans if they’re into the relationship Kevin is currently having with Madison (Caitlin Thompson). I’m biased, so I voted “no.” I wrote, “He belongs with Sophie.”

    Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’ co-star Martin Henderson calls her a ‘beautiful person’:
    .
    https://pagesix.com/2021/07/20/britney-spears-toxic-co-star-says-singer-is-a-beautiful-person/
    .
    By Nicki GostinJuly 20, 2021 | 8:19am
    .
    Martin Henderson — who starred opposite Britney Spears in her steamy 2003 “Toxic” music video — called the pop star a “beautiful person” amid her ongoing conservatorship battle.
    .
    “She was such a genuinely good person. I felt so much of what was happening to her was because of the way she was hounded and treated,” the “Virgin River” star told Page Six. “I think anybody in that kind of situation with that kind of stress would have moments of struggle.”
    .
    He added, “I think it’s not a surprise that she came undone the way that she did.”
    .
    And while he stressed that he’s not “inside the situation” and was just speculating, Henderson said he thinks the way her conservatorship — which Spears last month called “abusive” — was handled was “probably not very fair.”
    .
    “I just think whatever’s going on needs to be transparent so the courts can rule in a way for her good,” he said. “I would hate to think she’s being controlled or manipulated in any way because I think she’s really a beautiful person.”
    .
    Since his on-screen lip-lock with Spears, Henderson, 46, has gone on to star in “Grey’s Anatomy” and, most recently, the hit Netflix series “Virgin River,” which just released its third season.
    .
    “Various times in Season 1 I was coming undone trying to make things work and I remember Alex’s (co-star Alexandra Breckenridge) response was, ‘Oh don’t worry, no one’s going to watch it, don’t stress yourself out,’” he remembered.
    .
    “In a way, there was some nice security in that. Alex’s point was just to pretend no one’s watching but we also didn’t think that many people would watch it. We knew we were going to make it the best we could but it was a little romance show based on a romance novel, you know? So for it to turn into what it has, it’s quite a shock.”
    .
    Henderson is sanguine about his career, explaining, “I think I learned pretty early on that the road is bumpy and pretty up and down and you can think you know but you don’t.”

    My Life Is Murder star Martin Henderson shares his baby hopes:

    .
    He plays the romantic lead in a popular Netflix show and has starred in a hit US medical drama but New Zealand actor Martin Henderson still has one big ambition.
    .
    “I’m really happy with where my life is at the moment but, I mean, I’d like to have a family,” he says.
    .
    “That’s the one thing that I haven’t done. Now I’m getting a bit older you know I really think that would be a wonderful thing.
    .
    “I’m probably going to be a much better dad at this stage of my life than I would have when I was younger.”
    .
    Henderson, 46, stars in the Netflix series Virgin River and has a CV that includes Grey’s Anatomy, Shortland Street and now My Life Is Murder.
    .
    Filmed in Auckland this season, the crime drama centres on Lucy Lawless’ private investigator character Alexa.
    .
    Henderson has a guest role as her troubled younger brother, Will, who the actor describes as a total conman.
    .
    In a departure from his usual American characters, the Auckland-born actor had to revert to his native New Zealand accent.
    .
    “It was fun. It was good actually,” he says.
    .
    “It was a bit confusing though because (with) Lucy, her character I guess has been living in Australia her whole life so she’s doing this Australian accent. I’ve got quite, what would you call it, a transatlantic accent these days.
    .
    “So I’m trying to hone my Kiwi (accent). She’s speaking as an Aussie. It was quite difficult. But, luckily, there were lots of crew around that I could tune into.”
    .
    Henderson was offered the part while in New Zealand for a yet-to-be-revealed film project where he worked in Wellington and Whanganui.
    .
    He usually lives and works on the other side of the world.
    .
    Henderson spoke to Stuff from Vancouver. Although he wouldn’t confirm it, it is likely he was there for Virgin River’s fourth season.
    .
    The series is set in the picturesque northern Californian town of the same name where Henderson plays local bar owner and former marine Jack Sheridan.
    .
    The character is the love interest of nurse practitioner Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge), who moves to the town for a fresh start.
    .
    The show has proved a hit for Netflix, which came as a nice surprise for Henderson.
    .
    “It’s wonderful obviously,” he says.
    .
    “You do this job as an actor with the hope that you’re going to find an audience. I think we were shocked by the performance of season one.
    .
    “We just didn’t know what the audience would be. But it just seems to keep growing and growing…
    .
    “Now it’s sort of doing record numbers all around the world. So I don’t think any of us expected that level of success. So I think we’re all quite humbled and just very grateful that it’s struck a chord.
    .
    “I think part of that success is probably owing to the fact that the pandemic has made people really rethink a lot about life.
    .
    “Here’s a show that comes along. It’s not terribly sophisticated, you know, it’s unapologetically sort of warm and cosy.
    .
    “It speaks to, you know, more virtuous aspects of lives. It’s community and, obviously, love and romance and friendship and it’s got some spicy drama twists in there. But really, at its heart, it’s just a very feel-good thing. And it seems to be that that’s what people are attracted to right now. So perhaps our success is partly to do with what’s going on in the world.”
    .
    On his social media, Henderson mentions how much his mother loves Virgin River.
    .
    When asked what she likes about it, he says, “That I’m in it. That’s the truth. My mum would watch anything (but) I don’t know if she’d like everything. I’m not sure she’ll like the film that I’ve got coming out soon. But, yeah, my mum’s my biggest fan and she has been since I was a little kid.
    .
    “I got my first very first job as an actor on Strangers back when I was like 13. I think my mum said something then like, ‘Oh, you could go to Hollywood, you know’, and I think having her believe in me and to say something like that was sort of like, ‘Wow, if she thinks I could then maybe I could’, you know.
    .
    “I think I’ve been really blessed to have had a parent that’s been so supportive.”
    .
    ‘Blessed’ could also be how Henderson might describe his life during the pandemic.
    .
    “Look, I had the most fortuitous experience, you know, and I’m really aware that it was a fortunate one, which is why I use that word because I just got lucky,” he says.
    .
    “I happened to be in Mexico on my boat when the pandemic struck and so I just stayed on the boat for about seven months.
    .
    “So to be honest (for the) worst of it, I was just sailing, you know, and by virtue of (being on a boat) we were being socially isolated and there was no real danger. We would just take extra precautions when we went into town to resupply with food and whatnot.
    .
    “But it was still worrisome because I’d read the news and hear what was going on and, of course, no one knew what the outcome would be. So it was a bit scary.
    .
    “Then while I was on the boat, I got a call from Netflix saying, ‘Hey we want to shoot season three (of Virgin River). We need you in Vancouver in three weeks.’
    .
    “I was like, ‘Whoa, OK’. So then I basically went straight from Mexico up to Vancouver, and then we shot season three in Vancouver until the end of the year.
    .
    “I had a couple of weeks at home in LA over Christmas and then I was in New Zealand to do that movie.
    .
    “I was there for six months and now I’m back in Canada, so I haven’t really experienced the worst of it in the United States. I’ve literally just passed through there on my way to other places.
    .
    “A lot of my friends have had Covid. I just spoke to some friends last night and three other friends now have the Delta variant.
    .
    “So there’s a real resurgence there, you know, which is really gruelling because people feel like they’ve sacrificed so much already and now it feels like they’re going back to square one a bit.”
    .
    .
    My Life Is Murder, TVNZ 1, screens Mondays at 8.30pm.
