About Henry Thomas:
Henry’s film career started at a very young age. He was nine years old, when he already been in a film “Raggedy Man” and was invited to audition for “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial”. He won the part by giving a genuinely tearful performance, during which he had drawn upon the trauma of having seen his pet dog being killed by a neighbor’s dog. The film’s success was so unexpected that Henry had trouble to come to terms with with the reaction of the public. That was part of the reason why he returned back to Texas and continued to attend school. He did some TV work but didn’t returned to film until the late 1980’s to prove himself in adult roles. Most notably as the younger version of Anthony Perkins “Norman Bates” character in “Psycho IV: The Beginning”. His biggest adult role however was as “Samuel Ludlow” in “Legends of the Fall”. Next of being an actor, he is also a musician.
