When asked if he and Wahlberg’s Cade Yeager have “a little bit of a scuffle” in The Last Knight, Cabrera answered:
Yeah, kind of, yeah. That’s sort of a little introduction to my character, we have a little moment which is a fun scene we shot at the Packard plant, it was great fun, it was the first day that I worked with Mark and I really enjoyed it, read well, there was some action after it with big explosions and stuff.
The actor also touched upon the amount of time that has passed between the events of The Last Knight and Age of Extinction:
Yeah, I would say at least a few years and the world is in chaos, Transformers are coming in the bridges and they’re everywhere and it’s just mayhem now. So they’ve created a special force, a kind of a worldwide team where I’m a specific team leader who you meet that’s kind of in charge, and I’ve got drones and I go to work out to the junkyard where we believe Cade Yeager is hiding some robots.
Finally, Cabrera confirmed that his character Santos does have a supervisor that he answers to:
Yeah, yeah, you’ll meet like a team leader, there’s an actor who at the beginning of the scene where you first see me and you see all these guys, he’s giving all these instructions about Cade Yeager and that this is the guy you want, and then I take my guys and then we go out on the road and we find him.
