Did You Know One of The Original Mighty Ducks Is From MoCo?

While many remember Elden Henson’s roles as one of the “Bash Brothers” Fulton Reed in the Mighty Ducks movies and Foggy Nelson in Netflix Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) series Daredevil, you may not know that he was born right here in MoCo. Then known as Elden Ryan Ratliff, he was born August 30, 1977 in Rockville. His mom, Sayde Henson, was a teacher, and his dad, George Ratliff, was a former New York theater actor. He didn’t stay too long, as his family moved to California by 1980.

Henson started acting as a print model when he was just a toddler, and began acting in commercials when he was six. He had many guest roles on television and acted in films like 1988’s Elvis & Me (written by Priscilla Presley) and 1989’s Turner & Hooch starring Tom Hanks. As a teenager, he starred as Fulton Reed in the Mighty Ducks trilogy (1992-1996). Since then, he has had supporting roles in films like The Mighty, She’s All That, Idle Hands, O, Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met LloydThe Butterfly Effect, and a lot more.

Starting in 2015, Henson portrayed Foggy Nelson in the popular Netflix series Daredevil, which lasted three season. He also played the role in crossover cameos in other MCU shows like Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Though he didn’t spend much time in MoCo aside from the first three years of his life, He son proudly lists his hometown in his Cameo bio that allows fans to book celebrities for fun personalized video messages to friends.
