Mini Bio (1)

Elden Henson (formerly billed as Elden Ratliff and Elden Ryan Ratliff) got his start in the business at age two, as a baby model. By the time he was six, he was appearing in numerous commercials; by age ten, he was on his way to becoming a successful child actor. By the time he started high school, John Burroughs High School in Burbank, California, he got his big break, starring in the three The Mighty Ducks (1992) movies as enforcer Fulton Reed. From there, he went on to get rave reviews as Max Kane, the seemingly slow-witted giant in Miramax's The Mighty (1998). Elden has since starred in Idle Hands (1999), She's All That (1999), and Showtime's A Gift of Love: The Daniel Huffman Story (1999).

Trivia (6)

Went to John Burroughs High School in Burbank, California.
Attended Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts, but left after the fall semester in 1997.
Started a production company called Roulette Entertainment with Josh Hartnett.
Elden appeared in both versions of Marilyn Hotchkiss' Ballroom Dancing and Charm School (1990). He played the young Steve Mills in the 1990 short film, then Samson in the 2005 full-length feature. The interesting part is that the 2005 film used the 1990 film as flashback sequences, so, technically, Elden played two parts in the 2005 film-although 15 years had passed between when he had played the two roles.
Elden's characters Lenny from The Butterfly Effect (2004), and Agent Gunnars from Deja Vu (2006) were both integral to both plots regarding alternate realities based on time travel.
Brother of Erick Ratliff and Garette Ratliff Henson. Half-brother of Ellington Ratliff.
