Henshall also opened up about his wife Tena and what makes their relationship tick.
“She’s brighter than me and I like that, though it does drive me nuts sometimes when she reminds me of it!” he said.
“We’re both passionate, stubborn people, both strong-willed, so we clash from time to time. It’s nice to have someone who challenges me.”
