29 years old actor Lorenzo Richelmy is famous for playing the role of a famous explorer Marko Polo for two seasons in a Netflix series of the same name. He is also known for his attractive looks, sexy body and commendable acting abilities.
The actor first appeared in 2003s Italian movie Il pranzo della domenica as a child actor in 13 years of age. The famous Italian man has so far appeared in 9 films and six series.
He is a pretty famous actor overseas and now has left his mark in Hollywood and so far his acting journey looks promising.
Lorenzo was born in La Spezia, Italy, on 25th March 1990, but was raised in Rome. He already was into acting from the age of seven but his mother wasn't happy that Lorenzo was into acting, so he quit acting for a brief time.
As both of his parents were stage actors, and his family was really poor so they wanted him not to pursue acting.
Lorenzo Richelmy has said that he had to fight to with his family to join acting as his parents believed that acting isn't something which pays well.
He attended acting school at the age of 16. At 17, he did a web series Kubrik—Una Storia Porno while he was at the college.
While he was visiting States in April 2014, for the first time, and auditioned for Netflix’s ambitious historical drama, Marco Polo.
Richelmy reportedly thought he wasn't going to qualify for the part for the most anticipated series after Game of Thrones. However, after two months of his screen test, he finally got the part of the Italian explorer who arrives at the court of Kublai Khan.
As Marko Polo ran from 2014 to 2016 for two season/20 episodes which was budgeted for $180 million which is the highest amount that Netflix has ever invested in a series.
The Netflix original series was successful but it stopped airing after two seasons. However, Lorenzo's contract isn't over with Netflix.
Lorenzo reportedly was paid over $300 thousand per episode (excluding taxes) for Marko Polo meaning Lorenzo Richelmy easily made over $200 thousand per episode as Marko. As the show aired for 20 episodes, he made $4 million in 2 years. Hence his made over $150 thousand per month in salary.
So, Lorenzo Richelmy, who is in the States in a working visa, currently has a net worth of $2 million.
Richelmy's 2017 Italian Movie The Girl In The Fog, received over $4 million in Box Office in U.S theaters which is pretty awesome for a foreign language movie.
Lorenzo Richelmy's Instagram shows that he is all about work and shows very less of his personal side but the Marko Polo actor in an interview with the famous Glamour Magazine in December 2014, shared that he has a girlfriend.
Sorry, girls, we hate to break it down to you, but the Italiano is not single, as u expect him to be. The Hundred Eye's apprentice also shared that he used to Skype his girlfriend from all over the world while he was filming the series.
Despite disclosing how close he was with his Bae, di bell'aspetto refused to utter his fidanzata's name. However, he once dated Italian Actress Margherita Laterza, and many expect that they are still together.
So it's possible that he was talking about Laterza in his interview with Glamour.
While Lorenzo was in Marko Polo, the 29 years old actor was seen all shredded, doing martial arts and riding horses but in his recent movie The Girl In The Fog, the 5 Foot-11 inches tall actor looked all jacked up, and had gained some muscles mass.
So, currently, he weighs around 175 Lbs. Even though many think he has blond hair, he actually has brown hair and hazel eyes.
