While Glenn was growing up, he developed a liking for horror, sci-fi, and fantasy films which helped him get interested in the industry. During high school he worked on various theatre projects as a make-up artist and actor. After matriculating, he would then continue to improve his craft, and subsequently graduated from the York College of Pennsylvania, and soon fully pursued a career in special effects make up.

Hetrick started getting recognition for his work on numerous television shows, such as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and the crossover “Angel”, which started to boost his net worth. Soon he would put his talents to use in other shows such as “CSI: NY”, “Heroes”, and importantly “Crossing Jordan” in 2004, and on which he would stay for three years before moving to “CSI:NY”, on which he worked for two years. Around this time, he also began working on “Heroes”, which lasted from 2006 to 2010.

He won Emmy Awards for his work on “Babylon 5”, which aired for over 100 episodes during the ‘90s, and on over 200 episodes of “The X-Files” which stretched to 2008.

Glenn’s work also started expanding to films; he became a part of movies such as “The Prestige”, and “The Hunger Games”, and other films he’s worked on include “Return of the Living Dead”, “Blade II”, “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”, and “The Chronicles of Riddick”.

Glenn is also the costume designer for singer Lady Gaga, but has made several acting appearances himself, mostly in small or cameo roles, including guest appearances in “Scrubs”, “Committed”, and “Charmed”. In the series “Heroes”, he portrayed the character named “elephant man” and was credited under the name Glen Strange which is one of his stage names.
