Profile Bio Text
Noah Leslie Hathaway (born November 13, 1971) is an American film actor. He is best known for his roles played as a child, including Boxey in the original Battlestar Galactica, and Atreyu in The Neverending Story. He was born in Los Angeles, California, to Robert Hathaway, who was of part Native American descent, and Judy Ringler. He began his acting career at age two, and appeared in fifty commercials. He was cast as Boxey in Battlestar Galactica when he was only six, and states that he does not remember much of that time.
At the age of twelve, Hathaway was selected for his most memorable role: Atreyu in The Neverending Story. "For Atreyu", said German director Wolfgang Petersen, "I sought a good-looking boy of athletic build with the quality of fierce determination. The role requires the character to ride a horse expertly, fly on the back of a dragon, struggle through a swamp, clamber over rocks and fight a ferocious wolf-vampire." Filming took place at the Bavaria Film Studios in Munich, Germany, starting in March 1983. Preparation for the role included learning how to ride a horse bareback. Hathaway said he never read the book by Michael Ende because at the time it wasn`t available in English. Already fluent in French, the language-savvy actor picked up enough German to where the English-limited Petersen could direct him in German. The shooting lasted nine months.
Noah Hathaway has been active in sports all his life. An excellent swimmer, he was a Junior Lifeguard. He also played basketball, lifted weights, ran on treadmills, squatted, did headstands, and raced motorcycles. Hathaway left acting in the mid-1980s and moved into dance instruction, teaching advanced jazz and street dance until an injury forced him to quit in 1989 at eighteen. Noah returned briefly to the limelight in 1994 for Mortal Danger, which was his last acting role, though in 2005 he said he was taking acting classes again. He was recently cast for a remake of Troll and is providing a voice-over for the upcoming Italian Cannibal Film set in the 70`s, Mondo Holocausto!. He moved to Far Rockaway, New York for a few years and didn`t return to the West Coast until 1998. Noah is a fan of designing and riding chopper motorcycles and he`s also still trying to set up his own chopper shop in Southern California. Noah has a wife, Sameerah, and two stepchildren.
