Not Bad For A Human
Actor Lance Henriksen's Forthcoming Biography
Lance Henriksen is a Hollywood icon, with well over 150 films to his name. He's best known as the empathetic android Bishop in Aliens and the intuitive criminal profiler Frank Black in the TV series "Millennium," but he has also played gunfighters and gangsters, an astronaut, a vampire, a sadistic monk, Charles Bronson and Abraham Lincoln. He's mentored Tarzan, Evel Knievel and the Antichrist, and fought Terminators, Aliens, Predators, Pumpkinhead, Pinhead, Bigfoot, Superman, the Autobots, Mr. T, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal. He's worked with directors James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, Kathryn Bigelow, Sidney Lumet, Francois Truffaut, John Huston, Walter Hill, David Fincher, John Woo, Jim Jarmusch and Sam Raimi... But this is just skimming the surface.
Henriksen is a true artist – a painter, a potter and a creative collaborator who brings complexity and humanity to all of his work by drawing on real life experiences that are often stranger than fiction.
His forthcoming biography not only celebrates the actor's screen persona, film by film, but also recounts the chaotic upbringing and early life experiences that shaped him – revealing the man behind the image. As Lance so candidly states, "This isn't just a book about me becoming an actor. It's about all the people I've crossed paths with over the years who have helped me flourish in spite of the chaos of my early life. It's about a lifelong process of becoming a human being."
Not Bad for a Human will be released this year on Lance's birthday, May 5, in a limited edition by bloodypulpbooks.com and in paperback by Nashville's Alexander Henriksen Publishing, with distribution through major retailers such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
