Mark Margolis: career and pop success with Breaking Bad

Di Margolis, who defined himself as a “worker actor” recalling that six months after Scarface had to accept a friend’s proposal to work in the real estate sector to make ends meet, we also recall the long-standing collaboration with the director Darren Aronofsky. But of course the most recent popular success is due to his participation in Breaking Bad and its prequel Better Call Saul. Regarding the role of Hector Salamanca he stated that he was especially cut for the part.

I entered the show knowing only the episode in question, but, since the right is not taken into account, the fans immediately took a liking to me. Someone asked me: How did you play such a horrible character?, and I said: Have you talked to my friends? Well, they’ll tell you I’m rather unhappy to begin.

In some interviews Margolis said that Breaking Bad was his best television experience. And we can only continue to love and hate his character at the same time.
