Game of Thrones: Characters


Played by Edward Dogliani

A notorious wildling raider who calls himself the Lord of Bones, but is more commonly known to the Night’s Watch as Rattleshirt, thanks to the suit of bones he wears, including a giant’s skull for a helm. Beneath the armor and furs, he turns out to be a rather small, sallow man with thinning black hair coming to a widow’s peak, a wisp of a mustache, a knobby chin, and pinched cheeks.

The actor cast in the role looks heavier set than the character described in the novel, and rather more bearded from what little can be seen beneath the helmet.
