Lorenza Francesca Izzo Parsons (born September 19, 1989) is a Chilean actress and model best known for her role as Kylie in the horror film Aftershock, Justine in another horror film, The Green Inferno, and Genesis in the erotic horror thriller Knock, Knock, the latter two directed by her husband Eli Roth.
Izzo was born in Santiago, Chile. She has a sister, Clara, and her mother is the model Rosita Parsons. She is also the niece of model and actress Carolina Parsons. In 2014, she married actor and director Eli Roth. Their wedding took place on Chile’s Zapallar beach in the Valparaíso Region.
In 2007 Izzo was modeling and studying journalism at the University of Los Andes (Universidad de los Andes) when she moved to New York City to study acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.
Her modeling career reached its peak in 2011 when Izzo and her mother, Rosita Parsons, were invited to São Paulo Fashion Week where they met Gisele Bundchen. The meeting resulted in Lorenza becoming the new face of Colcci, a Brazilian fashion company.
In 2012, with one commercial feature movie to her name and three more then-about to be released Que pena tu familia, Aftershock, and The Green Inferno, Lorenza moved to Los Angeles, when she soon secured small roles in Hemlock Grove and I Am Victor.
