Lord Cley Cerwyn is a minor character in the sixth season. He is played by guest star Tom Varey and debuts in "The Winds of Winter". Cley is a northern lord and the new head of House Cerwyn after the death of his father, Medger Cerwyn.
Roose Bolton sends his recently legitimized bastard son Ramsay to Cerwyn to collect taxes from his new vassals. Medger Cerwyn, however, refuses to pay, proudly professing his loyalty to House Stark and denouncing Bolton as a turncoat. For his defiance, Ramsay has Medger flayed alive, along with his wife and brother, all the while forcing his son to watch the ordeal. When Ramsay relays these events to his father, he casually remarks that the new Lord Cerwyn paid his taxes.Winterfell after the Battle of the Bastards. With the Boltons defeated, Lord Cerwyn notes that the newly arrived winter is expected to be the coldest in a thousand years and advocates waiting out the cold. Jon Snow responds by saying that the war is not over and the new enemy won't allow them to wait out the storm; he brings the storm. Lord Cerwyn is one of the lords chastised by Lady Lyanna Mormont for not aiding Jon Snow against Ramsay Bolton, despite Ramsay having flayed his family alive. A repentant Lord Cerwyn declares Jon Snow King in the North along with the other Northern lords.

Lord Medger Cerwyn
In the booksEdit
While Ramsay Bolton did not kill Medger in the novels, he did kill his son Cley Cerwyn, at the Sack of Winterfell. When Rodrik Cassel hastily assembled a force to besiege Theon Greyjoy in Winterfell, composed of about 2,000 men from the few household soldiers left in the North, 300 of them were Cerwyn men led by Cley. Ramsay then arrived with 600 Bolton men, whom Rodrik and his lieutenants welcomed as their allies - but as soon as they were in the camp Ramsay's men betrayed the other Northern bannermen in a surprise attack, taking them totally off-guard. When Rodrik walked up to greet Ramsay by extending his hand in friendship, Ramsay quickly drew his sword and cut off Rodrik's outstretched arm at the elbow. Cley Cerwyn was killed in the betrayal by an arrow to the eye.
After Cley's death, Jonelle Cerwyn, his elder sister becomes the Lady of Cerwyn. Like the show version of Cley, she begrudgingly swears allegiance to House Bolton.
