Casa De Machete: A Chat With Danny Trejo

Posted: Updated:

I've always had a deep respect and admiration for people who despite incredible odds against them, somehow manage to succeed and make something of themselves.  Actor Danny Trejo is one of those people.

I recently went to his San Fernando Valley home for a shoot. He was celebrating 45 years of sobriety.  What an amazing accomplishment!!

Trejo shared his tumultuous journey from convict to movie star. He  explained what he believes is the secret to his great success.  And of course, we talked about "Machete Kills". His new movie that will be released in October.   Danny gave us the 4-1-1 on how Lady Gaga landed the role of La Chameleon.   It was a full day of sharing with Machete.

I learned all about his true loves. His passion away from acting is something many of you guys will treasure.  Of course, my passion for photography landed him in front of my lens.  I hope you like his photos. 

Bottom line, if you're a fan of Danny Trejo, I know you'll like this video. You can watch the video on YouTube directly here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1rB9wDb7ec

But I have to warn you, adult language is used in this piece.
