- “There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe… with tribes of humans… who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians… or the Toltecs… or the Mayans. Some believe there may yet be brothers of man… who even now fight to survive – somewhere beyond the heavens! “

TOPCON GEEK EXPO INVITES YOU TO MEET A RAGTAG FUGITIVE ON A LONELY QUEST THE MULTI TALENTED NOAH HATHAWAY
The TopCon Geek Expo Team Is Excited to bring to bring to our fans one of the most iconic character actors from two of the biggest cult classics of all time.
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.
Boxey: [to Apollo] Can I fly in your ship, sir?
Captain Apollo: Fighter planes are no place for little boys.
Serina: They’re going to have to be if our people are going to survive. We must fight back.
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 Never Ending 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.
Atreyu: You’ve already brought me the entire 10,000 miles?
Falcor: No, only 9891.
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.
Atreyu: [the ground shakes again and Atreyu is knocked down. He grabs a knife shaped piece of broken stone and stands up, ready to fight] If we’re about to die anyway, I’d rather die fighting! Come for me, G’mork! I am Atreyu!
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.
Whether as Boxey or Atreyu Noah Hathaway has given his fans a Never Ending Story of fond memories and character portrayals that gave us “many other wishes, and we had many other amazing adventures – before we finally returned to the ordinary world. But that’s… another story.” TopCon Geek Expo 2018 is honored to continue the story
