"Wait. It should be me. He was on my crew. His name was Will. He was 19. We left him behind..."
Nicholas to Glenn Rhee about Will's fate.[src]

Will is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. He is a resident of the Alexandria Safe-Zone.


Location Unknown

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



At some point in the apocalypse, Will joined a community called the Alexandria Safe-Zone where, upon being interviewed by Deanna, he was appointed as a supply runner in a team alongside Aiden, Nicholas, and three other residents where they searched for supplies around the town.

During a supply run in an abandoned town, the scouting party was attacked by walkers while Will was left behind by Aiden and Nicholas out of cowardice. Over time, a partially devoured Will reanimated and, due to being pinned and immobilized under a car, gradually deteriorated.

"Thank You"

When Glenn and Nicholas head out into the abandoned town to set fire to a feed store to lure walkers away, the two come across the zombified Will still pinned under a car. Feeling guilty and responsible for having caused his death, Nicholas stabs him in the head to put him down.


Killed By

While Will, Aiden, and Nicholas were on a supply run, they ran into trouble with some walkers. As a result, Aiden and Nicholas chose to leave Will behind, resulting in his death.

Sometime later, he is found reanimated and is stabbed in the head out of mercy by Nicholas.
