John Carter Hensley II (born August 29, 1977) is an American actor best known for playing Matt McNamara on Nip/Tuck. He's also known for his role as Gabriel Bowman in the supernatural action TV series Witchblade

John's parents divorced when he was 3 years old. He and his sister spent time with both parents growing up.

He was born in Hyden, Kentucky, United States. Before becoming an actor, Hensley worked on a horse ranch in Wyoming.

Though always drawn to storytelling, Hensley did not intend to act before he auditioned for a college play. Although he was not cast, he was hooked. Immersing himself in the school's theater community, he formed an improv group with a few other students. He eventually decided to move to New York, where he met his future manager.

Currently, Hensley portrays Matt McNamara on the FX drama Nip/Tuck. His film appearances have included Peoples, Fifty Pills, Teeth, and Shutter.
