Guillermo del Toro is from Guadalajara Jalisco, Mexico. He developed an interest in filmmaking in his early teens. Later, he learned about makeup and effects from the legendary artist Dick Smith who rose to fame with 1973′s “The Exorcist.” During that time he worked on making his own short films and by the age of 21, executive produced his first feature, “Dona Herlinda and Her Son” in 1986.
