The Ghoul

Amazon Prime's new series Fallout, based on the video game, is taking the television audience by storm. Viewers are especially captivated by the mysterious character known as The Ghoul, played by Walton Goggins. He looks half-rotted, which is only appropriate as the character is more than 200 years old. He began life as a man named Cooper Howard (also portrayed by Goggins in flashbacks), who survived the nuclear apocalypse that destroyed civilization. He is a mutant who makes a living as a bounty hunter, but his backstory is way more complicated, having been involved with the corporation Vault-Tec that made the Vaults.

In this featurette from Prime Video, we get a glimpse at the prosthetics that transform Goggins from the 20th century Cooper Howard to the weathered, noseless, 200-year old Ghoul. Goggins also talks about his damaged character and what he represents in the show
