October 26, 2015•81 min
Danny Trejo has developed a prolific career in the movie business, yet his road to success has been hard earned and anything but typical. From imprisonment to helping young people battle drug addiction, acting to producing, the name, face, and achievements of Danny Trejo are well recognized in Hollywood.
Trejo grew up on the streets of Los Angeles. Despite spending the latter part of his youth and early adulthood incarcerated, he rose to great accomplishment. Upon his release from Soledad Prison, he became involved in programs aimed at helping those who, like him, battle drug and alcohol addictions.
Despite his impressive list of credits, it’s his continual role as a devoted father of three and as an intervention counselor that bring him the most satisfaction.
