Mark is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. He is a member of the Saviors and the boyfriend of Amber.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Mark's life prior to or as the outbreak began.


Washington, D.C.

At some point in the apocalypse, Mark somehow came into contact with a group named "the Saviors" which he subsequently joined upon where he was appointed as one of the Sanctuary guards, during where he developed a relationship with his fellow survivor Amber.

Due to her mother needing medication and not being able to work, Amber volunteered to become one of Negan's "wives" to get things for free to provide for her mother. However, Mark and Amber still had lingering feelings for each other.

Season 7

"Sing Me a Song"

When Mark shifts his work duties to be with Amber, he is discovered by Negan and is punished for having broken the rules. He is tied to a chair near the furnace on the factory floor surrounded by the crowd of Saviors and workers. After Negan gives a speech of the rules, he presses a hot iron against Mark's face, burning the left side of it. Mark screams in agony, wets his pants, and passes out. Afterwards, Negan orders Dr. Carson to tend to Mark's injury.

Season 8

"Time for After"

Having becoming trapped inside the Sanctuary, Mark helps Laura barricade a set of doors as the herd idles outside. Later as Mark and Dwight were on an upper level of the Sanctuary, Mark was pushed over the railing of a balcony and was killed.[1]


Killed By

Mark fell to his death after being pushed off a Sanctuary balcony by Dwight.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims that Mark has killed:



Mark and Amber were in a relationship before the apocalypse. Amber sacrificed their relationship to ensure the safety of Mark and her mother. However, the two still care for each other, enough that Mark risked his life to be with her. Mark snuck behind Negan's back to sleep with her. Due his act of adultery, Mark was punished. A hot iron was pressed against his face by Negan in front of the entire Savior community. This caused great despair for Amber, who views Mark's punishment as partly her fault.

Negan Smith

Mark and Negan associate with one another as business associates in the Savior Compound. It is assumed that Mark doesn't respect Negan enough to avoid seeing Amber behind his back. Once found out, Negan punished Mark and scarred the left side of his face. It is assumed that Mark resents Negan for both interfering with the relationship between he and Amber, and now for the disfigurement of his face.
