Grab the tissues because From Scratch is about to become your latest Netflix binge-watch, but don’t be surprised if it makes you cry a few times while watching it! Lead actress Zoe Saldaña is excellent in the main role as Amahle “Amy” Wheeler, an American student studying abroad in Italy when she meets and falls in love with the handsome local chef Lino (Eugenio Mastrandrea).
From Scratch is based on Tembi Locke’s memoir, From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily and Finding Home, and Locke co-created the series with her sister Attica Locke. Not only is Tembi Locke a talented writer, but she’s also an actress herself, and you might recognize her from her time playing Dr. Grace Monroe in the Syfy series Eureka.
Since From Scratch has an important romance at its center, it might lead viewers to wonder about the actress’ real love life off-screen. If you’re a fan of Saldaña, you probably already know that she’s married as she and her husband have attended many events together in the past (almost) decade they’ve been together!
Who is From Scratch star Zoe Saldaña married to?
Saldaña is married to the Italian artist Marco Perego. Perego adopted each other’s surnames after they married, making his full name Marco Perego-Saldaña and Zoe’s full name Zoe Saldaña-Perego. The pair first started dating in early 2013 and married later that year. They’ve been together for almost a decade!
They have three children between them, all boys. Their twin sons were born first in 2014, and their third son followed in 2017. The actress has frequently discussed raising their sons in a bilingual household since she and her husband speak Spanish, English, and Italian.
Prior to meeting Perego, Saldaña was linked to her Guardians of the Galaxy co-star Bradley Cooper and actor and businessman Keith Britton before that.
From Scratch releases this Friday, October 21, on Netflix. Add it to your watchlist right now!
