On screen, Danny Trejo has taken on corrupt politicians and drug lords in Machete, dabbled in vampirism in From Dusk Till Dawn, and successfully captured the Firefly family in The Devil’s Rejects. His charismatic attitude and his ability to accomplish anything on screen has been a trademark of his 385 acting credits since 1983. Trejo showed the world yesterday that he’s just as big of a legend in real life when he saved a special needs child from an overturned vehicle in Los Angeles.
