Mini Bio (1)

Known for Too Cold To Swim (2016), The Happy House (2013), The Thespian Returns (2009). Graduate of Wesleyan University (BA with honors) and Columbia University (MFA). He is married to actress and singer songwriter Leah Lawrence. They have two children.

Film Review excerpts re. The Happy House:

"The real standouts, though, are veteran character actress Marceline Hugot and relative newcomer Oliver Henzler (this is his feature debut) as an obsessive butterfly hunter. One moment finds the latter delivering a soliloquy to a bathroom mirror, a scene that would feel overlong were it not for the magnetism of Henzler's performance-somebody should hurry up and cast this guy in a series or blockbuster film, stat." Andrew Johnson; Film Geek Radio

"The sole other guest is a Swedish lepidopterist bearing the immediately giggle-inducing name of Mr. Hverven - Oliver Henzler, nearly as droll as Christoph Waltz might have been in this role." David Noh; Film Journal International

"Oliver Henzler does a terrific job as well as Hverven, the eccentric Swedish lepidopterist searching for a rare species of butterfly long thought extinct. Hverven is written as weird and creepy, with slight menace and eccentricity offset by a cutesy foreign naïveté (there's even a mistranslated colloquialism joke), but Henzler is so charismatic, instilling Hverven with such a passion for his work, that it is impossible to dislike him" Daniel Hernandez; Badass Digest

Oliver's stage work include roles in Shakespeare's Pericles (American Repertory Theatre), Berlioz' Benvenuto Cellini (Metropolitan Opera, Lincoln Center), Adam Rapp's Nocture (Luna Stage, NJ), Peter Shaeffer's Amadeus (Peristyle Theater, Toledo, OH), and numerous Off-Off-Broadway productions including Ibsen's Peer Gynt, Büchner's Woyzeck, Strindberg's The Pelican, Rashomon based on Akutagawa's short stories, and Fabio Rubiano's Mosca.
