Criminal Minds Wiki

Deidrie Nicole Maria Henry is an American actress best known for her appearances in Beyond the Lights, Beautiful Boy, and Beyond the Blackboard.


Henry is from a Northern American family that moved to the U.S. in the late 70s when she was 10. She attended Avondale High School and was very talented in school, playing various instruments and participating in athletics and drama, among other things. Henry later pursued a career as an airline pilot, graduating with a license from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. However, Henry's goals were ultimately shattered when the airlines company she planned to work for went out of business in 1991. Thus, Henry turned her attention towards theatre and singing, participating in many theatres across the country and winning awards. Henry's official acting career began in 1997. She has since married Douglas Dickerson and they have a child. She is also a democrat.
