Interview: Richard Hatch

Apr 28, 2014

During WonderCon 2014 I had the chance to sit down with Richard Hatch (BattleStar Galactica) and discuss his roles in the original and reimagined BSG series.  During the course of the interview Richard very passionately describes his role as Tom Zerick and how it mirrored the political climate of the time.  Come and watch me get taken to Battlestar school in a great interview with a television legend.

Born in Santa Monica, California, USA, Richard Hatch was studying classical piano at the age of eight, and knew he wanted to carve out a career as a performer before he reached his teens. After attending Harbor College in San Pedro, he joined a Los Angeles repertory company with which he traveled to New York City in 1967. He performed in the plays “Song of Walt Whitman”, “Young Rebels” and a production called “Exercise”, which Richard directed. Richard was cast as the original “Philip Brent” in the soap All My Children (1970) in 1970. He later played “Inspector Dan Robbins” on the television seriesThe Streets of San Francisco (1972). Richard Hatch is best remembered for his portrayal of “Apollo” on the series, Battlestar Galactica (1978).
