Welcome to our John Bradley-West Page. John Bradley-West is a 25 year old British actor and is best known to us for his role in Game of Thrones as Samwell Tarly. In Game of Thrones John Bradley-West plays Sam brilliantly and really gives the character a lot of complexity and depth. Sam is a steward in the Night’s Watch and his best friend and possibly his one true friend in this world is Jon Snow. Being in the Night’s Watch means protecting the wall however the people who do so are rapist, murderers, bastards and men who have been abandoned by their family. Sam is overweight and cannot fight however he is book sharp and very intelligent balancing out the group nicely.
