Early life


Renzo was born in London, United Kingdom and grew up in California.[2] Renzo attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. In February 2014 during his final year, Renzo played the titular role of Henry V.[3] Renzo also sings (tenor) and has practised stage combat.[4]



In 2015, Renzo starred in short drama Ella. The following year, he made his feature film debut in the World War II film Chosen[5] and his television debut as Matteusz Andrzejewski in the BBC Three Doctor Who spin-off Class.[6][7] Renzo said that playing a gay character was made "quite easy" with the help of his co-star Greg Austin, and that their relationship was no different than the other relationships in the show.[8] Despite not being credited in the opening credits of the series, Renzo's character was advertised as a series regular by the BBC multiple times.[9][10][11] In 2018, Renzo reprised his role as Matteusz in six audio plays by Big Finish.[12]

It was announced in 2018 that Renzo would star as Charlie Brandon in the Starz historical drama miniseries The Spanish Princess, which premiered in 2019 followed by a part two in 2020.[13] Also in 2019, Renzo guest starred in an episode of the Netflix fantasy series The Witcher.[14] The following year, he appeared in an installment of the Apple TV+ anthology Little America and the Irish horror film Boys from County Hell.
