Born in England, Elizabeth Henstridge trained classically and worked in theatre and film before coming to Los Angeles in 2012. Since then she has worked with JJ Abrams, John Leonetti and the company New Line Pictures. Playing Simmons on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has made her part of a wonderful family of cast and crew, while bringing her critical acclaim. She has also learned lots of scientific words, which her mum is pleased about.
Henstridge loves working with cleft lip and palate charity Smile Train, The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and PATH in Los Angeles.
