Mark “Hector Salamanca” Margolis, RIP

Fans of “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” will never forget the unforgettable character of Hector (“Tio”) Salamanca! On the role he played, Mark Margolis said: “I was only coming onto ‘Breaking Bad‘ as far as I knew for that one episode, but there’s no accounting for taste, and the fans took a fancy to me,” he said. “Somebody asked me recently, ‘How did you manage to play such a horrible guy?’ and I said, ‘Have you talked to my friends?’ They’ll tell you I’m pretty miserable to begin with.” lol

His “Face Off” with Gus Fring is probably one of the most startling events in the Breaking Bad “Gillverse”. He was in quite a few other films and television series, from “Scarface” to “Oz“.

RIP, Mark Margolis, who died today at the age of 83.
