Robert Rodríguez also noticed her for his duo of films about the character of Machete (Danny Trejo). Michelle would play Luz in Machete (2010) and Machete kills (2013) two proposals with the flavor of a violent film from series B with the unmistakable stamp of the director who signs them.

Before getting into the movie at hand, Fast & Furious 9, Also mention his time on television and dubbing. For the small screen, her most relevant role would be that of Ana Lucía Cortez in the ABC series Perdidos between 2005 and 2006. As a voice actress, she has participated in video games such as Call of Duty and Halo, and provided her voice for the animated film Turbo. and on television for the Cartoon Networks IGPX series, these last two fictions with the theme of careers from which it seems that the actress does not want to get rid of.

And we finally get to his last job: Fast & furious 9.

The entire cast of previous films returns (except for Dwayne Johnson) in a fast-paced adventure of action and mind-blowing speed scenes, which are more incredible as it is now customary in the franchise. Constant adrenaline that will not disappoint lovers of the saga.

For her part, Michelle Rodríguez does not disappoint in her interpretation of Letty, being more than at the height of her male companions. His charisma is beyond doubt, and he is capable of putting the viewer in the pocket.

Fast & Furious 10 and Fast & Furious 11 both will feature Justin Lin behind the scenes and will be shot at the same time as a way to give the franchise a golden end.
