In 1985, he accidentally fell on the set of the film Andron Konchalovsky’s “Runaway Train”, where he was immediately offered a small role, probably due to the abundance of tattoos.
All this at once memorable actor you’ve seen about forty Hollywood films. Its hard not to remember: the lanky Mexican flecked with scars and smallpox person with a severe look and strong fists occurs in the frame each time, as soon as the main goodie think that all the problems were left far behind. Danny Trejo – was the name of a remarkable man, whose specialization in the movie speaks for itself – the main villain. And whose biography is much fun any action movie!
He haggling drugs and weapons, and when it came to “disassemble” the first exit on the line. It is no accident cronies, and later in the criminal environment for the strongest young men is nicknamed “Senior” / Major. He was fearless and invulnerable to sharp blades and bullets smashing. Like a charm, as if fate had prepared him far more weighty test …
Eleven years severe sentence for a robbery he took for granted, and immediately began to develop in a new role. On the area was not so bad. Later, in his only TV interview Danny Trejo acknowledged that the street was for him the same prison, and that he just moved to a new location.
Among the inmates he does not differ by about temper. Instead of English classes for prisoners, he disappeared for hours in the gym, where the thousandth time working out the Crown left jab. In the end, the tenacious Mexican guy noticed the prison thugs and was admitted to the “holy of holies” – the zone championship boxing. In his early 22, he became the champion of San Quentin prison in two weight categories – light heavyweight and heavy. At the end of the 12-tiraundovogo fight rival coach pounces on Trejo with a knife, but a boxer and sends it to the floor of the ring!
He replaced nine prisons and zones until he was on the loose. Gleaned experience behind bars more than enough – Danny decided that never again repeat this way. Trying to poobvyknut new role, the ex-convict agrees to months-long rehabilitation program developed by the government.
This is where amazing happens to him twist of fate, to radically change his future life. At a meeting of Narcotics Anonymous (more precisely, those who are trying to get rid of destructive habits) approaches him and someone offers to train the actor boxing. It turns out that soon begin shooting a Hollywood action movie, in which the protagonist escapes from prison.
So Danny Trejo has appeared for the first time in his life on the set. Prison drama with elements of thriller “Runaway Train” (1985) was nominated for several Academy Awards, including for the most prestigious “Oscar” – “Best Film of the Year.”
But is not it interesting, but the fact that the film’s director Andron Konchalovsky, seeing Danny Trejo selflessly trains actor Eric Roberts for the scene of the prison boxing match, decided to make Trejo hero of that same episode. Due to this coincidence colorful kinobandyugan received a residence permit in the big Hollywood.
Since then, the shortage of proposals was not there. Endless line went negative Supporting Actor – “Maniac Cop 2”, “3 Tyuryaga”, “Death Wish 4”, “Shannon Deal,” “drug war”, “Kinjite” …
Mexican tattooed with developing hair in the wind and not speaking a word (Trejo still speaks in broken English) strikes fear in the audience is only one of its appearance!

On the set of “Con Air” Trejo helped Hollywood star in all episodes of communication with “kinougolovnikami”, prompting the correct intonation and the only possible course of action. He helped Cage famous master zekovsky reception – hit bottom. As well as a strong psychological trick – how to look into the eyes of a foe and not blink!
