Tyler Henry        

The Hollywood Medium

Tyler Henry is an American clairvoyant medium who appears in the U.S. television series Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry, produced by 44 Blue Productions and Corbett/Stern Productions. The series began broadcast on the E! Television Network in the United States in January 2016, enjoying immediate ratings success and prompting the network to order additional episodes. Critical skeptics of Henry have called him a "grief vampire" and question E!'s decision to televise personal readings as entertainment.

Henry is a native of Hanford, California, a small rural suburb just outside Fresno. He reportedly had his first psychic experience at the age of 10, when he woke and told his mother that his elderly grandmother, who had cancer, was about to die and that they should immediately leave to see her. The sensation was "almost like a memory that hadn't happened yet". His grandmother's death was confirmed a few minutes later with a telephone call.

After giving readings to students and teachers at Hanford's Sierra Pacific High School, from which he graduated on an accelerated academic program, Henry initially aspired to attend college and become a hospice nurse to help people with their transition. However, Henry soon was "discovered" and began offering readings in Hanford, Fresno, and eventually Los Angeles. Before long, he gained a healthy celebrity clientele and a reality TV development deal. Henry, who has never had a driver's license and who is often driven to readings by his mother, began filming his E! television series when he was 19 years old and the show began airing a week after his 20th birthday.

Henry has explained that "I'm more likely to get information visually. I am a blank canvas and the people on the other side paint the picture ... they use me to do that, any way that they possibly can, so I do go through the other senses, though, and there are times when I feel things physically, pick up on a smell, or hear a voice."

Henry reportedly welcomes skepticism about his work: "I am content with people asking questions", he told the Fresno Bee. Critics have observed that many of the celebrity revelations are easily found on the web, though Henry claims not to research his clients in advance and not to know whom he is going to read.
