About Hoban Washburne

Hoban Washburne, played by Alan Tudyk, is a character in a 2002 sci-fi T.V. series ‘Firefly’. Hoban Washburne, aka Wash, is a pilot on Captain Malcolm Reynolds’ spaceship “Serenity.”

Wash became a pilot because he loves to see stars for back when he was younger Hoban grew up in an overly polluted planet where he could hardly see any flickering lights in the sky.

As a young adult, Wash spent a lot of time traveling from planet to planet which makes his skills as a pilot grew more and more.

By the time Wash gets to meet Captain Malcolm Reynolds, he had grown quite a famous reputation so Mal offers him a pilot position on Serenity in which he accepts. Wash’s hobby is to play with his dinosaur toys he keeps in the ship’s cockpit.

On board, he meets Zoe Alleyne, a Browncoat lady, whose first impression towards him is the combination of dislike and distrust. Ironically, they fall in love sometime later and eventually get married.

Although he has a dry sense of humor, Wash has always been a calm and sensible person. Unfortunately, Wash is later killed in the confrontation between the crew and the cannibal pirates called ‘the Reavers.’
