Noah Hathaway’s acting breakthrough came in 1978, in the cult sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica, where he played the role of Boxey. Noah further played some parts in sitcoms and small productions like Eight Is Enough, CHiPs, America 2-Night, Mork & Mindy, Simon & Simon and Family Ties.
When he was ten years old he was cast in the movie Separate Ways and two years later came another space movie The Quest. Noah’s best-known roll was in the film The NeverEnding Story, directed by Hollywood-director Wolfgang Petersen (Das Boot, Air Force One, Troy), playing the lead role, Atreyu. He was nominated for the 6th Young Artists Awards for his role in this movie and won the award for Best Younger Actor in the 12th Annual Saturn Awards in 1984.
Noah Hathaway taught advanced jazz and street dance in his late teens until an injury forced him to quit at 18. He then studied Muay Thai Kickboxing and fought as an amateur. He holds black belts in Tang Su Do and Shotokan, and has learned American Kempo from Dr. Jerry Erickson, and he also helps him teach a close-quarter combat-training course for flight attendants and pilots for the airlines.
Nowadays, Noah Hathaway mainly keeps himself busy with designing (and riding) customized motorcycles (aka choppers), something that has been a passion ever since his childhood. He’s still learning and taking courses (in for example welding) to perfect his skills. His dream is setting up a shop one day in which he can sell and work on his self-built choppers.
Recently, Noah appeared in the films Mondo Holocausto! and Sushi Girl.
