Zoe Saldana And Eugenio Mastrandrea are the protagonists of the exciting series From Scratch – The strength of a love. The two actors have conquered the audience of Netflix, telling the cross-cultural love story of Amahle “Amy” Wheeler, an American student who falls in love with Sicilian chef Lino while in Italy. The two lovers face a thousand unexpected obstacles, including cultural differences, but as in real life, their whirlwind story alternates moments of joy and light-heartedness with more serious ones. But when Lino falls ill and the couple’s future is at risk, their families unite across borders in a way they never imagined, proving that love can do anything.
From Scratch is based on a true story told in the autobiographical book by actress and writer Tembi Locke. The woman met her husband Saro Gullo while in Italy and the couple married in 1995.
In a recent interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Eugenio Mastrandrea spoke about his experience on set with Zoe Saldana: «An extraordinary person, an incredible actress. I feel honoured, lucky and blessed to have been able to work alongside a professional like her. She allowed me to build the journey of these two characters together, she treated me as an equal, even though she was Zoe and I was the kid who comes from Rome. She taught me so much”
