Battlestar Galactica actor Richard Hatch dies after cancer battle

Actor Richard Hatch, who played Captain Apollo in the original Battlestar Galactica film and TV series, has died after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

His manager Michael Kaliski said Hatch, 71, died with his son Paul by his side.

After an early role on All My Children in 1971, Hatch worked steadily as an actor, appearing in series including Dynasty, The Love Boat, Santa Barbara and Baywatch.

He also appeared in the rebooted Battlestar Galactica TV series from 2004 to 2009.

Mr Kaliski said Hatch would be remembered for his youthful wonder, passion for creativity and kind heart.

Besides his son, Hatch is survived by his brother John.
