  Summary  

Noah Leslie Hathaway is an American former child actor. He is best known for his role as Atreyu in 80s film The Neverending Story and for portraying Boxey on the original TV Series Battlestar Galactica.

  Biography  

 career
 Early work
Hathaway began appearing in commercials at age three, and later starred in several TV films and TV series. At the age of six he starred in Battlestar Galactica, portraying Boxey, where he received a nomination in the first Young Artist Awards.

 The NeverEnding Story
His most memorable role was as Atreyu in 1984 film The Neverending Story. He received his second Young Artist Awards nomination and won the award for Best Younger Actor in the 12th Annual Saturn Awards.

For the role Hathaway performs his own stunts, German director Wolfgang Petersen said:

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.

Noah Hathaway replied:

Well, what it was... Wolfgang Petersen was notorious for his actors doing their own stunts. His actors are always getting hurt, because he wanted... Audiences are very savvy, you can cut away and show the back of somebody and show the stuntman doing their stunt. And everybody knows that, so he wants his actors to do as much as they can for the realism of the movie. Accident happen and actors aren't stuntmen. That's why they have stuntmen, because if someone gets hurt, they're "expendable". And some of the times, they're just more careful... I just ended up paying.

 Later roles
Hathaway starred in the television movie Casebusters, as Jamie. Hathaway did not return to acting until 1994, in the film To Die, to Sleep, in his first adult role. After a second hiatus as an actor, Hathaway returned in 2011 for the films Mondo Holocausto! as Ruggero Margheriti, and Sushi Girl as Fish.

 personal life
Hathaway attended school at Lycee Francais de Los Angeles. He moved into dance instruction, teaching advanced jazz and street dance until an injury forced him to quit in 1989 at the age eighteen. Trained in martial arts, Hathaway would later earn black belts in Tang Soo Do and Shotokan Karate, and also competed as a Muay Thai boxer, and learned American Kenpo from Dr. Jerry Erickson. Hathaway spent some of his time at the Willow Springs Raceway in Rosamond, California competing in supersport motorcycle racing, design and driving "chopper" motorcycles, and established his own motorcycle-customization shop in Southern California. He is on tour with WizardWorld Conventions and will be appearing at the Chicago and Philadelphia shows in 2011.
