Walton Goggins Fallout

Inside the life of Walton Goggins, the Fallout ghoul everyone is weirdly crushing on

Yes, it’s possible to thirst after a man who looks like a carved pumpkin


Have you seen this handsome zombie? The internet’s man crush of the week appears to be star of Amazon’s newest hit series, Fallout, Walton Goggins.

Goggins stars as the swaggering cowboy bounty-hunter for hire, Ghoul, in the TV series, an adaptation of the video game series of the same name, alongside rising stars like Ella Purnell and Aaron Moten.

Viewers have taken quite the liking to him and have not been shy about expressing that. Despite the caved in Voldemort nose, people have been thirsting left, right and centre.

With an instantly recognisable appearance, Ghoul costumes are sure to do rounds this October. I can already see the Halloween Instagram thirst traps. Here’s all you need to know about Walton Goggins before his star performance in Fallout on Amazon.

He’s 52 years old and is from Alabama in the US

Walton Goggins is from Birmingham, Alabama, U.S.A, but raised in Lithuania Springs, a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia. He broke into the entertainment industry in the early 90s, but it wasn’t until 2002 that he got his big break, when he was cast as the corrupt police officer Shane Vendrell in The Shield.

Today Goggins works for serval humanitarian and environmental non profit organisations and is a partner in a spirits company, Mulholland Distilling.

Unfortunately he’s married and has been for over 10 years

In 2001, he married Leanne Kaun, a Canadian who owned a dog walking business in Hollywood, and they remained married until her suicide in 2004.

Walton married his now wife Nadia Connors in 2011 meaning that they have now been together for 13 years, so there’s no chance for any of us it seems. They have one son together.

Walton has already been in loads of other stuff

Walton may look familiar to viewers, most notably from his leading role in The Shield, and supporting roles in films such as Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight. Safe to say he’s got the cowboy thing down.

He’s one of those “that guys.” Actors who show up in a movie, everyone goes “Oh I love that guy!”, but you still forget his name after Googling it a thousand times. He also usually plays antagonists, so it’s a nice change to see him play a good guy, even if he’s an anti-hero.

He’s set to be another major show coming up

Goggins is set to feature in the upcoming season of The White Lotus and star in The Uninvited, written and directed by his wife, Nadia. Power couple.
