This article is about a specific character. For other uses see White Walker

A White Walker is a minor character in the second and third season. He is a member of the race of White Walkers. He is played by guest star Ross Mullan and first appear in "Valar Morghulis."



This White Walker and others of his race lead an army of Wights Beyond the Wall.

Season 2

While Edd, Grenn and Sam gather flammable stuff in the snow, they hear three horn blasts. Edd and Grenn run back to the Fist of the First Men and Sam is left behind. Sam hides behind a stone, and sees the White Walker on horseback. He looks at Sam and then ignores him, leading the army of Wights towards the Fist.[1]

Season 3

As Gilly and Sam are making their way to the Wall, the White Walker approaches them. Sam confronts him but the White Walker freezes and shatters his sword by holding it and punches him aside, focusing his attention on Gilly and her unnamed son. The White Walker is then stabbed in the left scapula by Sam with his dragonglass dagger. Unable to reach the blade, the White Walker then desiccates, turns into ice and shatters.[2]


  • The White Walker appearing in "Second Sons" was visually identical to the one that appeared in "Valar Morghulis", who was also played by Ross Mullan. It is assumed by this wiki that they are intended to be the same White Walker.

In the books

In the A Song of Ice and Fire books, Sam slays a White Walker that attacks him after he falls back from the main column during the march to Craster's Keep. Sam gains the nickname of "Sam the Slayer" both in admiration by those who believe him and in mockery by those who don't. After the murders of Craster and Lord Commander Mormont, Sam and Gilly take refuge at a village that Sam believes to be White Tree, in which they are attacked by the wight of Small Paul, who had been killed by the White Walker.
