Noah Hathaway (Boxey)

Noah Hathaway

Actor Name:  Noah Hathaway

Character Name:  Boxey

Episode Appearances:  Main Cast

Character Bio:  Serina's only son, six-year-old Boxey lost his daggit in the Cylon attack on Caprica. He and his mother were quartered on the Galactica, but Boxey fell into depression at the loss of his little dog-like creature. Serina sought help for him from a handsome pilot named Apollo, and it was Apollo who arranged for a droid daggit, Muffit II, to be given to Boxey. Apollo marries Serina, and when Serina dies, becomes Boxey's only parent.

Early on, Boxey and Muffit accompanied Apollo and Serina onto the planet Carillon. When Muffit ran off, Boxey followed him and was caught by the Ovions. This led to the discovery of a huge tylium mine and sources of food for the entire fleet. The Ovions, however, turned out to be kidnapping humans for food.  Boxey was also trapped in the Rejuvenation Center with Boomer and Athena during the fire that spread through the Galactica. Because he trained Muffit to sniff out mushies, the bridge officers on the ship were able to lead Muffit to them and get oxygen masks to the trapped people.

Boxey expresses interest in becoming a pilot when he's older, and spends time with his aunt Athena and his grandfather Adama when Apollo is out on patrol. He often worries that his father won't come home from a mission.

Actor Bio:  Noah Hathaway was born November 13, 1971 and started acting in commercials at the age of three under guidance of his father Robert who was an actor and a music editor. He was six years old when tapped to star on Battlestar Galactica as Boxey, the stepson of leading man Apollo (Richard Hatch) after the death of his mother Serina (Jane Seymour). Noah was nominated for the 1st Young Artists Awards for his role in the series. 

In 1984 Noah starred in the movie The NeverEnding Story, directed by Hollywood-director Wolfgang Petersen (Das Boot, Air Force One, Troy). Based on the much heralded book by German writer Michael Ende, Noah was cast to play the leading role of young hero Atreju, who is given the task to save the world of Fantasia. The movie never lost its appeal to both young and old viewers and remains a cult-favourite. It was at that time a big-budget production, yet it was filmed at the Bavaria Studios in Munich, Germany. For this movie, Noah did many of the stunts himself, one of them accidentally almost cost him his life! 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. He starred as Harry Potter jr. (not the well known wizard) in 1986's Troll. This movie also starred Anne Lockhart, who was his co-star in Battlestar Galactica, as she played the role of Lt. Sheba. He also starred in a number of movies and TV shows through 1986, including Family Ties, Mork & Mindy and Laverne & Shirley.

During his teens he taught dance, specifically advanced jazz and street dance, until an injury sidelined him at age 18. Prior to moving back to LA in 1998, he lived in New York for two and a half years. In his spare time, he tried to get out to the track at Willow Springs, California, to race in Super Sport motorcycle racing. He has tended bar at several LA clubs and sometimes worked in real estate, which he studied in college, as a mortgage loan officer. 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.

His next on-screen project was the film project To Die, To Sleep in 1994. He also worked as a Production Coordinator on several movies during this period in his life.

Noah Hathaway also 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. Next to that he's also a tattoo artist.

Recently he took up acting classes again. Although his back still aches, he feels fit enough to start. He's coached by the highly praised Ivana Chubbuck, who has launched some of the most successful careers in Hollywood, like Halle Berry and tries to get himself in gear. In 2011 he picked up his acting career after a 15 year absence and is now starring in several movies like Sushi Girl.
