Marlo Kelly Is Possibly Single
The rising star has kept her lips sealed when it comes to her love life. Her Instagram posts present no information regarding a potential relationship. She only shares work-related information, sponsorship promotions, and sometimes fun outings with her friends. It is likely that the 23-year-old is single and focusing on her career.

Marlo Attended School In Australia
Despite revealing little personal details, the young beauty loves talking about her work and how she got where she is now. She went to an artsy all-girls school in Sydney for her studies, where she took a lot of acting classes and got private coaching, too.
But, she credits luck as the primary factor for being a successful actress at her age. The talented prodigy has put in the effort ever since she was little. But Kelly was fortunate that her agent spotted her talent when she was doing a production in her final year of high school. Her agent liked her performance and signed her soon after.
Shockingly, she managed to get good at cheerleading and gymnastics for her role in the drama series Dare Me. She had no prior experience as they don’t do much cheerleading in Australia. However, she didn’t need any experience when portraying the bond between her character, Beth, and her best friend in the show, Addy. According to Bustle, she met her own real-life best friend in the third grade at school.
Regardless of her character’s stone-cold persona, she is rather bubbly in reality. Kelly became close friends with her roommate and on-screen nemesis, played by Alison Thornton. The two later went skydiving to celebrate the end of filming Season 1.
Marlo Has Been Active In The Acting Industry Since 2016
The actress didn’t have to wait long to land her first role. She starred as Skye Peters in the Australian Drama Series Home and Away from 2015 to 2016, appearing in 43 episodes. Other prominent Aussie actors like Chris Hemsworth, Heath Ledger, and Johnny Ruffo also made appearances in the show at some point.
She has also starred in short movies such as Vampir, Nobody Hangs Out Anymore, and Chlorine. Her breakthrough role came as the titular stone-faced beauty in the horror TV series Patricia Moore. Fans and critics alike praised her performance in the role.
Besides Patricia, she is also recognized for her role as Beth Cassidy in the drama series Dare Me. The beautiful lady went far and beyond to portray the character. To play the midwestern high schooler with top cheer skills and the sass to match them, she took inspiration from TV classics like Mean Girl and The O.C.
She wanted to make Beth relatable, so she read Sylvia Plath‘s poetry to channel her angst and portray her as an emotionally wounded character trying to connect.
The actress then broadened her horizons and tapped her funny side for her appearance in Joe vs Carol.
How Much Is Marlo Kelly’s Net Worth?
Despite her early success, Kelly is still a newbie in the vast showbiz industry. Her limited role in Home and Away earned her about $40k. Likewise, the star likely earned a decent sum for her role as Patrica.
Given that Netflix usually paid actors $35,000 per episode, she earned $350k from her role as Beth in Dare Me. Furthermore, the 3 Body Problem cost about $200 million to produce. So, hefty salaries can be expected.
Taking this all into account, Marlo’s estimated net worth is about $1 million.
She Is Under The Care Of UTA

It represents artists and other professionals across the entertainment industry. It helps connect clients to opportunities across entertainment, media, and business.
