Then: Noah Hathaway played Atreyu in the 1984 fantasy film 'The NeverEnding Story.' Hathaway did most of his own stunts for the role, and by that we mean flying around on his trusty luckdragon Falkor. Before snagging that coveted role, Hathaway played Boxey on the original 'Battlestar Galactica' TV series.

Now: The 41-year-old actor more or less quit acting when he entered high school, but he's kept things interesting by earning black belts in tang soo do and shotokan karate, and racing motorcycles competitively. After earning only one acting credit since 1986, Hathaway is slated to appear in three movies this year.
