Wanting to get into cinematography, but unable to afford the high costs of film school, Hendrix attended The University of Montevallo where she received a BFA in photography. Before graduating college, she was introduced to filmmaker Kris Kimlin at a sushi restaurant and was asked if she would act in his short film, "Letting Go" which she agreed to. Having never done anything serious in front of the camera before, Hendrix said, "I thought he was a bit crazy just offering me the role like that. I had nothing to lose, though, so I gave it my all." Because of that role, she was discovered by long-time friend and collegue of Kimlin's, Jon Erwin, Co-Founder of Erwin Brothers' Films, who saw the film and noticed a "spark of freshness and honesty in her face". Since then, Hendrix has appeared in many short films, music videos and commercials with the Erwin Brothers. In 2008 Hendrix graduated and married Swiss musician Gabriel Trüb and moved to Switzerland putting her acting work on hold to focus on her marriage and build a photography business. However, the acting bug had already bitten and by 2009 Hendrix landed the lead in Halogen Network's TV pilot, ALUMNI.
Much of the ALUMNI cast re-united to film once again with the Brothers in their first feature film, "OCTOBER BABY" which released on March 23, 2012 in select theaters across the country. The film had the third highest per-screen average and closed at No. 8 in the nation for its opening weekend competing again "The Hunger Games" - one of the most successful Hollywood blockbuster openings ever - in more than 10 times as many theaters. Opening in a relatively modest 390 theaters, Samuel Goldwyn Films/Provident films "OCTOBER BABY" also strode grassroots support and word of mouth to a No. 1 ranting for limited-release movies.
Since October Baby's release in 2012, Hendrix has starred in two feature films, "The Perfect Wave", next to Scott Eastwood and Cheryl Ladd, and "Letting Go" with Andrew Cheney (Beyond the Mask, Seasons of Gray) both set to release in the Spring of 2012. You can also find her in the INSP Network's first ever original-scripted short form mini-series titled "Old Henry" next to The Waltons' veteran actor, Ralph Waite. The show premiers on June 18, 2013 and can be found online at moments.org.
