Alejandro Gillick was a hitman hired by the CIA to help hunt members of the Mexican drug cartel.


Alejandro Gillick was a tax inspector and prosecutor in Juarez, Mexico until the brutal murders of his wife and daughter. Subsequently, he became a "sicario," or assassin, for anyone willing to employ him against the Mexican cartel. His primary employers are the (supposedly resurrected) Medellín Cartel and the Central Intelligence Agency.


Alejandro Gillick was portrayed by Benicio del Toro in Sicario.

He is known throughout the Mexican drug cartel as, "Medellín." A name which clearly conjures fear amongst his enemies.
