Henstridge was born in Sheffield, England, attending Meadowhead School and then King Edward VII School before graduating from the University of Birmingham. She studied at East 15 Acting School and later moved to Los Angeles.

In 2015, Henstridge starred in the critically acclaimed "4,722 Hours", the fifth episode of the third season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In contrast with the ensemble nature of the show, this episode contained none (except Iain De Caestecker) from the main cast and was centered around Henstridge's character alone. The episode received an overwhelmingly positive critical response, with praise going to its bottle episode nature and Henstridge's performance. The episode was named one of the best television episodes of 2015 by The Atlantic. Many critics called it the best episode of the series.
In 2016, Henstridge was cast as Abigail Folger in the horror film Wolves at the Door, loosely based on the infamous Manson Family's murders.
Henstridge is in a relationship with actor Zachary Abel. She has a dog named Maggie. She supports Smile Train, a charity organization.
