Late Actor, Richard Hatch
Richard Hatch, the actor best known for the original Batt|€Xtar Galactica film and TV series, has died. He was 71.
The actor, who played Captain Apollo in the sci-fi classic as well as Tom Zarek in the rebooted Batt|€Xtar Galactica TV series, passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer, Hatch’s son Paul said on Tuesday.
“In spite of significant ro|€X in other series and motion pictures over the following decades, his connection with the original Batt|€Xtar as well as the remake created an international following among science fiction fans," Paul said in a statement on the actor’s website.
Over the years, Hatch also made guest appearances on shows including “The Waltons,” “Hawaii Five-O” and “Baywatch.”
He also spent much of his later career attempting to revive “Batt|€Xtar Galactica,” including novels based on the series.
Hatch even went as far as to write, co-direct and produce a trailer for a spinoff called “The Second Coming,” but Universal Studios rejected his pitch.
Instead, the studio ordered a remake from Ronald D. Moore in which Hatch played Tom Zarek, a terrorist-turned-politician, for 22 episodes over the show’s four-season run.
