Renée Felice Smith is the actress who has been portraying the character of ‘Nell Jones’ in the CBS military drama/police procedural action series NCIS: Los Angeles since the show’s second season in 2010. She is also remembered for her role as high school psycho ‘Missy’ in the 2011 film Detachment. Since 2017, she has also starred as well as directed a comedy production entitled Relationtrip. And she has a couple of other roles to her credit. In this post, we are paying attention to the actress’s personal and professional life above all else. Is she married? If yes, who is her husband? Otherwise, who has she dated? What has her family life been like and how does it compare with her life at work? These and similar questions will have our attention as we proceed with this inquiry.
How Renée Felice Smith’s Career Has Developed Over The Years
The information available to us indicate that Renée has always had a flair for acting from very early in her life. Her first acting role ever came when she was just 6 years old in a national commercial for Danone yogurt. Then, in her high school, she was so involved in the theater that she was voted as ‘the most likely to win an Oscar’.
Taking her passion for entertainment to the next level, Smith attended the Tisch School of the Arts but, surprisingly, she didn’t major in drama but in journalism. Then, when her professional career actually took off, it was via a Broadway production named Wildflower. Her first big-screen role (apart from the Danone Yoghurt commercial) would have been in a CW sitcom named Wyoming which never saw the light of day eventually.
Then, in the second season of NCIS: Los Angeles, Renée got the role of ‘Nell Jones’ which was originally planned to be a recurring one. However, her performance impressed the producers to the point of upgrading her role to the main cast of the show.
In addition to this, Smith has also had other acting gigs including a role in a 2017 episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, a short sci-fi film Code Academy (2014), Nanny Cam (2014), and short film Baby (2015) which she also produced.
Smith has a soft spot for dogs. She owns a French bulldog named Huge. Then, she began co-creating a children’s book series based on this passion of hers in 2012.
Is She Smith Married?
Renée herself has never come out plain to make statements about her relationships. But her fans have been wanting to know about them. As a result of this, questions as to whether she is married is common. So, we join the discussion here. Is she married? If yes, who is her husband? Otherwise, who is she dating?
To make it short, the actress has been linked to a certain guy named Christopher Gabriel whom we have found to be a film director. Based on their social media posts, we can say that they are quite close to each other.
For instance, their demeanor towards each other while they work together on their movie significantly entitled Relationtrip tends to betray a hot romance going on between them.
Apart from this, we have not been able to link the actress to any other fling. We do hope that they say “I do” any time soon.
Interesting Details About Her Family
Renée Felice Smith hardly shares details about her family, with the only exception coming in a 2012 interview with Tailsinc, where she spoke fondly of her mom. That interview revealed the fact that the actress has a good relationship with her family – with her mom at least. We have also been able to unearth the name of her mother as Karen and that she has a sister named Monika.
Smith who is of Italian and Irish descent was born on 16 January 1985, in New York City, the USA where she lived with her family and was raised. She attended Patchogue-Medford High School on Long Island, New York.
We are still digging to get further details about the actress’s family, including the names, professions and more of her siblings, father, mother, and other relatives. We will also try to find out how much of an influence each member of her family has been to her and her career path. As we access these details, we are going to share them here.
