Is Eugenio Mastrandrea Married? Does He Have A Wife In Real Life?

The Don Matteo actor, currently in his 30s, achieved global stardom with the series From Scratch. With fame, he got another thing to deal with- fan queries about his relationship and whether he is married.

However, Eugenio does not have a wife- at least, all the hints point to that now. So far, he has never mentioned his dating story or girlfriend, let alone the mentions of his wedding.

Mastrandrea has more than 87.5K followers on his Instagram as of this writing. However, he is not very active on the platforms or has any posts about his partner or romance.

Eugenio Mastrandrea And Zoe Saldana Were On-Screen Husband And Wife

In the Netflix series From Scratch, the Italian-born actor portrayed the lead cast Lino Ortolano opposite Zoe Saldana, who played his on-screen wife Amahle “Amy” Wheeler.

What makes the limited so special is that it is based on a real love story inspired by Tembi Locki’s NY Times best-selling memoir ‘From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home.’

Later, Tembi and her sister, Attica Locke, adapted the memoir into a series.

In addition, the age gap of 15 years between the actors brought concerns about whether the on-screen delivery would be authentic; Eugenio is 30, while Saldana is 45. Everything went well at the end.

‘From Scratch’ is about Locke’s story of love and loss that depicts a film-like encounter with her husband, their relationship journey, and her husband’s demise due to cancer. It’s the story of Tembi and Saro, Amy and Lino in the adapted version.

Spoiler Alert!

In the eight-episode series, the Houston native Amy is an art student who took off from law school to study in Florence, while her future husband, Lino, is an Italian chef. They bump into each other on a street in Florence, and it was love at first sight.

Their chemistry became a cross-cultural romance of the beautiful Sicilian countryside and sunny Los Angeles.

The couple married and moved to Los Angeles later. It was a relationship goal moment-turned-true for Amy and Lino until the latter was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.

Following his diagnosis, they adopted a daughter, Idalia (an adapted name for Zoela), so that she could be close to Lino’s Sicilian family, who initially disapproved of their marriage as Amy was a black American.

After her husband’s death, Amy and her daughter moved to Sicily, where she developed a bond with her mother-in-law.

What Did Mastrandrea Feel About Portraying Lino?

In an October 2022 interview with Tudum, Eugenio talked about her deep connection and responsibility to portray Lino (based on Tembe’s late husband Saro), “I felt responsible for carrying the story on my shoulders.”

Moreover, Mastrandrea stated a strange overlap between him and his character, Lino- both were Italians and had never been to the United States.

During the filming, the actor met Tembi’s real-life daughter Zoela (an inspiration for Idalia) on the set and developed a father-daughter chemistry with her.

The Equalizer 3 actor seemingly has mastery over keeping a dating life low-key. So far, Mastrandrea has no record of past relationships or ex-girlfriends.

However, fans are not buying that this handsome hunk could be away from the dating scene. As a result, fans theorize that he has a secret girlfriend in Italy.

He may be dating his partner secretly and wants to avoid the limelight and unwanted attention. But proofs advocate any claim in the glam world. So, without any evidence about his girlfriend, some allege Eugenio could be single and focusing on his acting career.

During an interview with Man In Town in August 2023, the actor gave his thoughts on romance,

“I believe that energies are formed and developed between two individuals and so it’s a result of what that person and I create together, right? I don’t think there are romantic men no matter what, you become one because at that moment you are resourceful, you risk everything.”

Moreover, when asked if he would follow his loved one anywhere in the world, the actor stated perhaps he would, but he has not been in such serious relationships.
