Marcello Ranieri
Actor, Dancer
“And when the indefinable becomes the familiar, then I urge you to keep going, to keep finding, there will always be more. That is your role, to keep on experiencing yourself until you know so much that it terrifies you.”
– R.M. Drake

Born and raised in the prairies of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Marcello Ranieri was introduced to the arts at age 17 where he began his training as a dancer. After only a few short years at local studios, the quick study made his way out west upon being accepted into the Source Dance Company. While in Vancouver, Marcello’s professional career began when presented with the opportunity to work with Stacey Tookey (SYTYCD) and as assistant choreographer to Heather Laura Gray on A&E’s Bates Motel.

Residing now in Toronto, Marcello has worked as a bicoastal dancer on many exciting projects. You will find his talents on screen in the upcoming films entitled “Needle In a Timestack”, directed by John Ridley, and Disney’s “Z-O-M-B-I-E-S 2” directed by Paul Hoen. Marcello also had the opportunity to dance for Meghan Trainor at the 2018 iHeartRadio MMVA’s, choreographed by Charm La’Donna, as well as British singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé, choreographed by Sean Cheesman (SYTYCD). Other credits include working with Aveda Canada, MAC Cosmetics, Fashion Art Toronto and Toronto School of Circus Arts.

With an eagerness to dive further into the arts and a passion for being on film, Marcello began studies in acting for film and television under Lewis Baumander with whom he continues to train closely with. His found love and perseverance in acting over the last few years has landed Marcello his first role as Sam, a supporting lead in an upcoming feature film, “After Her Smile”. He also recently recently booked his first role on a major Netflix series as a recurring character (De Sade) in season 2 of The Chilling Adventure of Sabrina. Marcello’s charismatic personality, kind heart and constant push for growth means for an undeniably bright future. This is just the beginning.
