Michele Morrone is an Italian actor with numerous films in Italian and Polish. Michele has made a splash in modeling and also singing aside from acting. With his breathtaking performance in Netflix’s erotic film 365 Days, he has recently made headlines. He was paired with Anna-Maria Sieklucka in the series.
Michele Morrone was born in Bitonto, Italy, on Oct. 3, 1990. As he is the only son and the youngest child in the family, he grew up. He’s got three sisters older than him. Morrone’s father was a construction worker, while Angela, a seamstress, was Morrone’s mother. To find better jobs, the family moved to Melegnano, near Milan, when they were relatively young.
In 2002, when Morrone was 12, Natale died. Morrone also spent part of his childhood in the south of Italy, in Apulia. After watching a Harry Potter film at the age of 11, Morrone had resolved to become an actor. He participated in a middle school after-school acting program. Due to bad behavior, Morrone failed his first year at secondary school. Then, at the Teatro Fraschini di Pavia, a theater in Pavia, he attended professional acting classes.
Career (as an actor and singer)
- As an actor
As a theatre artist, Michele began his acting career. Michele Morrone made his stage debut at the Theatro Fraschini of Pavia in 2010 with Noah’s Cat (2010), in which he was the leading performer. He made his TV debut in the ‘Come un Delfino 2’ Italian web series and continued to play in the TV series Second Chance (2013), God Help Us 3 (2014), Privacy Ancora prof 6 (2015), Sirene (2017), Medici (2019).
Michele made his film debut in 2017 with the short ‘Who’s the Beast’ in the ‘Peter’ role. He made his Polish film debut as ‘Massimo’ with ‘365 Days’ and also appeared in the following films Renata Fonte (2018), L’ultimo Giorno del toro (2018), Bar Joseph (2019), and Duetto (2020).
- As a singer
His first album was released as titled Dark Room in 2020; in the film 365 Days, some of the songs from the album, “It’s Hard For Me,” “Feel It,” and “Watch Me” were featured.
A year before getting married in 2014, Michele Morrone and his ex-wife, Rouba Saadeh, reportedly dated. A designer, Rouba is the founder of Le Paridis des Fous.
Unfortunately, after four years of marriage, Michele and Rouba divorced. Michele was devastated by the divorce, and this incident sent him into depression. He quit acting, and he became a gardener with 1000 inhabitants in a remote village.
Michele Morrone is a rising star of the Hollywood scene, but his earliest fans already knew him. He’s quite a Renaissance guy with a great talent for acting, singing, and modeling, so it’s no wonder Michele has an approximate net worth of $4.5 million.
He has made most of his cash through his acting career, mostly in Italian and Polish films. Nevertheless, 365 Days is the culmination of Michele’s career. Netflix signed a three-year deal with the 29-year-old actor after the astounding popularity gained from the film, to complete two more films in the 365 Days trilogy.
This recognition has led to Michele signing a six-figure contract with American designer Paul Marciano and his fashion company “Guess” (approximately $500,000). For a guy who used to make $600 a week as a gardener, all of these recent achievements are somewhat unbelievable.
Michele on social media
It’s all about social media platforms these days. Somehow it has been like a mandatory process to post images and update whereabouts on the internet. We’re talking about Michele Morrone’s virtual fandom in the same way here.
He has not only amassed 11.7 million followers on Instagram but also a huge Facebook fan base. Not to forget, on YouTube, Michele is significant as well. This handsome 29-year-old is so versatile that there is nothing that he can’t do. He can sing, dance, act, and many more. Besides, Morrone uploaded a few music videos to his self-titled YouTube to showcase his talent.
Facts you did not know about him.
- He Came from Huge Family
Michele Morrone lives in a small town near Milan that has 15 thousand inhabitants. He doesn’t talk about his family much, but because the actor has four siblings, he grew up in a busy household (three sisters and a brother, who works as a photographer). His dad worked in the building business and died when he was just 12 years old. No information about his mother is available.
- He has two children
Michele Morrone does not talk much about his siblings and parents, but when it comes to speaking about his children, he is more accessible. He has two boys that look just like him, Marcus and Brando Morrone. The actor also posts videos and photographs of them. He had a live show with one of his daughters, too, and they seemed to have a great bond.
- He was married to a fashion designer.
From 2013 until 2018, Michele Morrone was married to the fashion designer Rouba Saadeh, and they had two children together. Saadeh is the founder of the luxury brand Le Paradis Des Fous, and her link may have also inspired Michele with fashion because he loves to be well-dressed. Because of their children, the former couple seems to be on good terms, and reports say they share custody.
- He is also a painter.
He doesn’t like to keep his talents concealed. The actor is also a painter. There are stories just with his paintings on his Instagram highlights, and he seems to be into abstract art. He loves to show his studio and the process of creation.
- He was already famous in Italy.
Thanks to 365 Days, the world got to know Michele Morrone in 2020, but he was already famous in Italy, but far from being among the A-list stars. His career began with small roles in 2015, but he got his first relevant job in the TV series, Sirene, in 2017. However, beyond doubt, his great success came with the Netflix production, and he will repeat the role in the sequel to the movie. He’s also in The Trial, another series available on the streaming service.
