Early life

Elden Ryan Ratliff was born August 30, 1977 in Rockville, Maryland, to a professional photographer mother.[1] His siblings are actors Garette Ratliff Henson (who appeared in The Mighty Ducks with Elden) and Erick Ratliff (who, like Elden, appeared in Elvis & Me). Henson also has a younger half-brother, Ellington Ratliff, who is a member of the band, R5. Elden's father George Ratliff was an actor and his mother took her young boys for commercial auditions. They lived for a number of years in Weehawken, New Jersey, where he attended Gary Golombek High School until its closure.[citation needed]

Henson attended Emerson College.[2]


From 1992 to 1996 Henson played Fulton Reed in all three films of the Mighty Ducks trilogy: The Mighty Ducks (1992), *D2: The Mighty Ducks (1994) and D3: The Mighty Ducks (1996).

In April 2015, Henson was cast as Foggy Nelson in the Netflix Web TV series Daredevil. Henson spoke of his excitement for the character's role in the series, saying "I was really excited as I was getting the scripts and reading that Foggy wasn't just a useless sidekick. He's not just comic relief. I mean, he is some of those things. He does have comic relief, but it was exciting to know that these other characters would have their own path and their own things that they're dealing with."[3][4]
