Shadow and Bone has officially hit Netflix today, and chances are if you’ve checked out the first episode, you might already have a crush on Malyen “Mal” Oretsev. The charming character who’s in a bit of a will-they, won’t-they relationship with protagonist Alina Starkov (Jessie Mei Li) at the start of the series is played by actor Archie Renaux.
You might recognize Renaux for a minor role in the TV series Hanna, his character Leo Day in Gold Diggers where he appears alongside his Shadow and Bone co-star Ben Barnes, and his parts in films such as Body of Water and Voyagers. The 23-year-old British actor has a few impressive parts on his resume, but he’s still very much an up-and-comer. And his next project is extremely exciting. Renaux is set to appear in Marvel’s Morbius, the highly-anticipated film starring Jared Leto in the titular role.
Enough about Archie Renaux’s professional life. If you’re wondering if the actor is in a romantic relationship or has any kids, you’ve come to the right place.
Archie Renaux child
The rumors out there are true: Archie Renaux does have a child! However, it looks like the actor tries to keep his personal life pretty private, so we don’t know too much information other than the fact that he’s in a relationship with a woman named Annie, and they have a baby girl. Their daughter was born in October 2020, according to TV Over Mind. We don’t know if Renaux is married or not, but it’s obvious he has a sweet little family either way!
Unfortunately for anyone who was hoping to shoot their shot with Renaux, the actor is off the market. However, the same can’t be the same for Ben Barnes. The 39-year-old actor is seemingly single and ready to mingle, though he sparked romance rumors with close friend Julianne Hough earlier this year.
We’ll be on the lookout to see which Shadow and Bone stars are boo’d up or not.
Shadow and Bone season 1 is currently streaming on Netflix.
