At the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards in 2012, he was nominated for his Breaking Bad performance.

However, Jeremy Davies for Justified won the award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series.

Regarding his Breaking Bad success, Mark told The Hollywood Reporter: “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.

“Somebody asked me recently, “How did you manage to play such a horrible guy?’

“I said, ‘Have you talked to my friends?’ They’ll tell you I’m pretty miserable to begin with.

“There wasn’t much direction. I’m an actor. I was trained by Stella Adler, one of the greatest teachers in the world.

“The only thing I knew about playing this character was that he was paralyzed and the only part of him that worked below the neck was his finger to ring the bell.”

He added: “Now I get stopped every 25 minutes by somebody who’s a big Breaking Bad fan.

“But it kind of upsets me. I ask them, ‘Do I really look that bad in real life?’

“I mean, I’m an older man, but they made me up on the show to look worse than I normally do.”

What was Mark’s cause of death?

Mark, 83, died on August 3, 2023, as a result of health issues from a brief illness.

His wife, Jacqueline, their son Morgan, and their two grandkids survive him.
