Trejo has worked with director Robert Rodriguez in many of his films, including Machete in “Spy Kids” film franchise, “Grindhouse,” and his own lead-starring, film series (“Machete” and “Machete Kills”); Razor Charlie in the “From Dusk till Dawn,” Navajas in “Desperado,” Cucuy in “Once Upon a Time in Mexico,” and Cuchillo in “Predators.”
