We just had an opportunity to interview Mark Margolis who played Hector "Tio" Salamanca on AMC's Breaking Bad and I was thrilled. He is such a good guy with a great sense of humor. He was scheduled to do a few interviews and we were fortunate to be one of them.
Margolis, 72, is well-known for his role in Scarface and is a regular fixture in Darren Aronofsky's films, including memorable roles in Pi, The Wrestler, Requiem for a Dream. Margolis was honored to receive the Emmy nomination for a role, capping his more than 40-year acting career.
"I am flattered and happy to receive it. ... Whether I win or not is beside the point," Margolis said, upon hearing of his nomination. "I've been on many TV shows, but none excite me as when I get the call from production on an episode of 'Breaking Bad.' And I was fortunate enough to be graced by that production company for three years running."
AMC's Breaking Bad has won 6 Emmy Awards, which have been well deserved and nominated for Best Drama Series, Best Actor in Drama Series once again, and Best Supporting Actor and Actress in Dram Series Emmy Nominations for 2012. With the opportunity of an interview with Emmy-nominated actor Mark Margolis for his role in Breaking Bad as Tio Salamanca, we were honored.
