<p>Freddie Boath (born 6 May 1991) is an English actor. He is known for his role as Alex O'Connell in The Mummy Returns.
Boath was born in London to a banker father and a producer mother. He has an older brother, Jack and a younger sister, Millie. Boath attended the Catholic prep school St Phillip's (the same school singer Mika attended). He has attended drama classes with his siblings for several years. His only acting experience prior to The Mummy Returns was lip-syncing John Travolta's role in a class production of Grease.
Boath was a big fan of The Mummy and remembered every detail of it. He chose to audition for his role in Mummy Returns over one in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. On the set of The Mummy Returns, when anyone wanted to know anything about the first film, they would ask him. Freddie was replaced for the role of Alex O'Connell for the third movie in The Mummy series by older Australian actor Luke Ford.
Boath also starred in an ITV1 show called The Children. He plays 14 year old Jack, a troubled teenager, where he said he could relate to the character as his parents divorced when he was young too. In 2010 he played King Henry II as a teenager in The Pillars</p>
