Boath was born in London to a banker and a producer, respectively his father and 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-synching John Travolta's role in a class production of Grease.
Boath was a fan of The Mummy and had seen it many times and remembered almost every detail of it. He chose to audition for his role in Mummy Returns over one in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Because of his knowledge of the first film, on the set of The Mummy Returns, when the cast or crew wanted to know a particular detail, they would ask him. Boath 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 of the Earth.
It is rumoured that he might have a small role on House of Anubis Season 3.
