Martin Henderson looks back on his most memorable roles



Spoiler alert! Henderson doesn’t make it to the end of this movie, which dramatizes the action made famous in Jon Krakauer’s 1997 book Into Thin Air. But boy, did he have fun playing an experienced (but ultimately luckless) climber. “We got to shoot in Kathmandu and the foothills of the Himalayas,” he recalls. “In order to get all of the cast and equipment up to particular villages, we literally trekked and shot along the way. Severe storms came through and made filming extremely challenging. Those kinds of things bond you, in a way. Coming back from a 10-, 12-, 14-hour day, you’re freezing cold. Your face is getting lacerated by real ice, and you’re having trouble remembering your lines because your brain just stops working when it’s that cold. But the director’s urging you forward and everybody’s in it together. Then you get home at the end of the day, sit by the warm fire, and have strudel with your castmates. It’s just an extremely bonding experience that I’ve never had on a film before.”
