She looks white, so her father probably is a colombian “castizo”(3/4 Spanish and 1/4 Native American).

I bet she herself is a castiza

She does not look 100% white, she has obvious Native American features.

Even though I’m disappointed that there is no specification as to what type of European ethnicity her maternal side includes, I am sooo happy they listed it as “European” instead of “Caucasian!” Thank you EthniCelebs! Hahaha ;)

She looks too exotic to be French ! Alizee is a Corsican/Mediterranean.
