We are actually seriously saddened by the the news of the death of still outstanding actor Mark Margolis, widely recognised for his incredible contributions to “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul,” at the age of 83.
Morgan Margolis, the CEO of Niting Factry Entertainment and his son, verified the tragic news. According to Morgan, Mark Margolis breathed his last on Thursday at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, following a brief illness.
Mark Margolis received critical acclaim and a nomination for the Emmy Awards for the role he played as Hector “Tio” Salamanca in “Breaking Bad” in 2012. Tio, a beloved figure, was a former cartel leader who communicated via a wheelchair bell. He later reprised the role of Tio as a young man in a wheelchair in the prequel series “Better Call Saul.”
“He was an extraordinary creature! He did not possess any dialogue at all, which was great for me.I mean, I had to know what was happening, my signals were there, but the fact was that I didn’t have to master lines, which was just fine. I’ve got to fly to New Mexico, and I don’t have to worry about remembering anything,” Margolis had told TIME about the role in 2013.
Aside from several other credits until 1976, he also appeared in “Scarface,” “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” and “Oz.” He frequently collaborated with director Darren Aronofsky and appeared in six of his films.
Despite having over 100 film and television credits brings Margolis became famous for his characterization of Tio, which he thought hilarious.
“Three people stop me every day, and they only know me from ‘Scarface.'” Margolis told Vulture during 2016: “I always say, ‘God, you’re talking about something that happened 30 years ago.'” “I’m a gregarious guy who gets caught up in people’s lives. I just should shut up. It makes me feel like they retired me for some reason. Insecurity maybe is the word.”
Margolis also playfully teased about his proficiency in ringing the bell on the set of “Breaking Bad.” “I don’t do a whole lot of commercials,” he chuckled. I didn’t know why anybody wanted me, and it’s called a ding bell, and it rings a bell, and that’s how I communicate, Margolis said, remembering Walch. “I tell people that I’m the second-most famous bell ringer.”That’s Quasimodo and me,” Margolis quipped with a smile, referring to his iconic role in “Breaking Bad.”
Darren Aronofsky paid a sorrowful tribute to the actor who initially made his mark in his flicks “Pi,” “Requiem for a Dream,” and “The Fountain.” Margolis has been characterised by Aronofsky as a wonderful friend, mentor, and classic New Yorker, as well as a fascinating artist.
Margolis’s wife, Jacqueline, his son, and several grandkids survive him. A while after that day, Bryan Cranston, star of Breaking Bad, paid tribute to Mark Margolis via Instagram. He said, “Mark Margolis was a truly fine actor and a lovely man.”Fun and games on set, and (in the case of Breaking Bad and You’re Honor) fear and intimidation.”
