GUUUUUUUEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS WHO HE WAS!!!??? Here is a piece of trivia to help you on the journey…He Played Harry Potter in 1986. Now theres a puzzle for ya. Why on earth would this, now 39 year old, play Harry Potter!!?? Find out why, after the jump!!
Noah Hathaway. Atreyu from Neverending Story and to answer your trivia riddle, the star of then terrifying, now hilariously terrible horror movie Troll as (*drumroll)…….Harry Potter.
IMDB has some scoop on him:
Before moving back to LA in 1998, he lived in New York for two and a half years. In his spare time, he tries 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 has several tattoos. He holds black belts in Tang Soo Do and Shotokan, and is currently learning American Kenpo from Dr Jerry Erickson, and he also helps him teach “a close-quarter combat-training course for flight attendants and pilots for the airlines.
Thats a scary thought, Atreyu taking down an Al-Queda terrorist on your 1 and a half hour flight from Boston to Newark. What’s scarier,the terrorist or having your life in the hands of Noah Hathaway.? Mind you he lead Artax straight to his death in the Swamps of Sadness, so …..Unless you’re flying Falkor Airlines.
He has owned and worked at Wild Child Tattoo with his wife since 2009.
Noah Hathaway….We speak your name…
