In a 2018 interview with Danny Trejo on her National Public Radio program "Fresh Air," Terry Gross asked Trejo, "What's the role in which you are most cast against type? Because your type is always kind of like tough and menacing, like the most powerful person. So have you played [a vulnerable character]?"

It was kind of a real - she was like abused and abused and got out of prison. It kind of showed what happens when a woman gets out of prison and how she's used and abused. And I was like her buddy or her good friend or whatever. You know what I mean? And she was wonderful, great actress. But we went all over the world. People love that movie." See more
