Skinner, Assistant Director Walter: fict. pers.

  1. Character in the Fox Network television series The X Files played by actor Mitch Pileggi.
  2. An ex-Marine with a stern sense of duty, the Bureau's Assistant Director Walter Skinner sometimes has little patience with Mulder's unorthodox methods of investigation. He has been forced to shut down the X-Files, but decided to reopen them on his own authority. Skinner seems to be caught between two agendas: agents Mulder and Scully on one side and the Cigarette-Smoking Man on the other. Frequent visits by the CSM portray Skinner as another Syndicate lackey, but his efforts on behalf of Mulder and Scully "through unofficial channels" clearly show his concern for the agents and their work.
