Benjen Stark

Played by Joseph Mawle
IMDB Official Site

Gaunt and sharp-featured, Benjen is Lord Eddard’s only surviving sibling. He joined the Night’s Watch in the aftermath of Robert’s Rebellion, and has since risen to the rank of First Ranger, making him one of the chief officers on the Wall and a potential successor to the office of Lord Commander. Very skilled in ranging beyond the Wall, Benjen’s name commands respect.

On the show, Benjen is around 40 whereas he is around 30 in the novels.
