Who is Allagash in Willow on Disney Plus? Meet Actor Christian Slater

**Warning – Spoilers ahead for Willow Episode 6**

The latest episode of Willow on Disney Plus has introduced a new character and we explain who Allagash is and explore the past roles of actor Christian Slater.

The sequel series suffers the notable absence of Val Kilmer’s Madmartigan. The actor was previously on board the revival but was later forced to exit the series during the brunt of the pandemic when he was unable to travel.

Based on the characters created by George Lucas and developed by Jonathan Kasdan for Disney Plus, the fantasy adventure series Willow is a direct sequel to the 1988 film of the same name by Ron Howard, starring Warwick Davis, Ruby Cruz, Erin Kellyman, Ellie Bamber, Tony Revolori, Amar Chadha-Patel, and more.

Who is Allagash?

Allagash is an original character to the franchise introduced during Episode 6 of the series, titled Prisoners of Skellin.

Succeeding his alluded-to existence in Episode 5, Kit and Willow meet the character after being imprisoned by trolls and learn Allagash has been imprisoned for a decade.

Allagash pretends to be Kilmer’s character, Madmartigan, despite Willow knowing better, and the character ultimately sacrifices himself so that the others can escape the troll dungeon.
