James Henderson is a stand-in and actor who worked as a stand-in for Lemony Snicket (Jude Law) in the 2004 Paramount film adaptation of A Series of Unfortunate Events.


James Henderson was born in the small town of Childress, Texas, on July 10, 1973. He didn't begin pursuing his film career until August of 1999, but exactly one year later; he had the good fortune of being chosen by Janusz Kaminski to stand-in on Steven Spielberg's film A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001). Following "A.I.," James got the opportunity to work on Spielberg's next film, Minority Report (2002), but this time as a speaking actor. His interest in photography has led him to developing his own photography business while pursuing his film career. During his time on the set of Alex & Emma (2003) he won "5 dollar day" the first two Fridays that it was played. He purchased the first professional camera for his photography business with the winnings and continues to shoot photos for friends and other industry professionals to this day.[1]
