Alberto the Shadow is a major antagonist in the 1983 film Scarface. He is the personal bodyguard of Alejandro Sosa and one of his top assassins alongside The Skull.

He was portrayed by Mark Margolis, who also portrayed Hector Salamanca.


Alberto is first seen in Sosa's factory walking alongside Sosa, Omar Suarez, and Tony Montana. He is later seen in Sosa's mansion in charge of phone calls before escorting Suarez to a helicopter.

Three years later, he was sent with Tony to New York to assassinate a journalist who was threatening to expose Sosa's illegal activities. However, upon learning that the journalist had his family with him, Tony tells Alberto to call off the hit. However, Alberto refuses to do so and insists on going through with it, even if it meant killing a woman and her kids as well.

Before Alberto could detonate the bomb, Tony shoots him in the head, killing him instantly.
