Her ambition and love for dance was also a creative outlet for her, and a way to cope with the loss of her brother in a drunk-driving accident when she was 14. When Hennig was 16, her dance teacher convinced her to enter the Miss Louisiana Teen USA pageant with the hope of opening new doors. She won the title and went on to compete for Miss Teen USA 2004, subsequently winning that pageant as well. During her reign, Hennig campaigned vigorously with MADD and Buzz Free Prom to share her story and encourage students across the US to learn the dangers of drinking and driving.

In March of 2007, two months before graduation from NYCDA, she flew to Los Angeles for a vacation and got a last minute audition for "Days of Our Lives," where she landed a contract role.
In her spare time, you can find Hennig scouting Vancouver's restaurants in search of some authentic crawfish étouffée, jambalaya or fried okra.

She landed her first cover on French Cosmopolitan when she was only 15 and has since graced the covers of many international fashion magazines. She also appeared in commercials for such products as Lady Stetson, Oil of Olay and Old Spice.

"Species" took in over $100 million at the box office, making Henstridge a hot property.
