EVERYONE LISTEN! I'm a Boxtroll, and I stopped hiding so you can too! Stand up for yourself, we CAN FIGHT BACK!
~ Eggs to his captured Boxtroll family
Don't do it. It won't change who you are. Cheese, hats, boxes, they don't make you. You make you.
~ Eggs trying to Stop Snatcher from eating cheese that will kill him.

Eggs is the main protagonist of the 2014 film The Boxtrolls.

The Boxtrolls

Eggs is an orphaned boy adopted by a group of monsters known as the Boxtrolls, who are feared by the townsfolk of Cheesebridge but actually harmless tinkers. When the trolls are threatened by a wicked exterminator, Archibald Snatcher, he must defend them with the aid of Winnie, a spirited rich girl.


  • Eggs is voiced by Game of Thrones star Isaac Hempstead-Wright.


Lord Winnie's father, people of the upper world. Archibald Snatcher has lied to you all! He told you that boxtrolls are monsters! That they steal children! But they don't. They would never hurt anyone. I know because... Because I am the Trubshaw baby!
~ Eggs' speech.
