correction; her eyes are grey/green and her hair colour is dark/sandy blonde I think it should be listed

shahram July 31, 2013 at 9:25 am

andrew July 31, 2013 at 4:59 pm

Danish, Swedish, Norwegian…

No wonder she’s so beautiful. These are exotic mixes (well, ‘exotic’ of cold countries).

Karro Jansson March 14, 2012 at 6:52 am

I think she looks like swedish and finnish..
Just my opinion..

Ammz October 14, 2011 at 12:46 am

English, Danish and Swedish? No wonder she’s gorgeous :)

ethnic January 31, 2010 at 7:19 pm

Great to hear that Paul.

Kolfinna Rjukan February 12, 2011 at 10:16 am

I’m Swedish, Finnish, and Black.

Paul(: January 30, 2010 at 8:09 am

Yeah, my paternal grandmother is Chinese-Japanese.
It’s weird to compare myself to her, as in people wouldn’t think we’re related. I take after my Caucasian side, as does my sister who’s blue-eyed and naturally blonde.

We’re still proud to be mixed, though. (:

ethnic January 9, 2010 at 3:25 pm

Just curious are you a quarter Asian?

Paul. January 9, 2010 at 5:04 am

@ Ethnic, haha, Idk I was quite Oriental-looking when I was really young, but had really blonde hair. I think I get my blue eyes from my Swiss, French and Italian blood.. Idk about the hair, it has a mind of it’s own. :P

Jen January 9, 2010 at 1:54 am

Yep i agree with you x

Luomi (cloudberry) January 9, 2010 at 1:38 am

Yes, I think she looks like she could be from
Scandinavia or somewhere else in Northern
Europe (England,Ireland etc.)

Jen January 9, 2010 at 1:25 am

I don’t know what it is..she just does.. ;)

Ok i’ll look, thanks. Do you think she looks scandanavian?


Luomi (cloudberry) January 9, 2010 at 12:56 am

What do you mean, Jen?
We (Scandinavians) are very diverse.
Please take a look at the links I have posted
of some famous Norwegians in What’s your Ethnicity.
It also includes some famous Sámi people and
Norwegian Travellers.

Jen January 8, 2010 at 9:57 pm

I never said it was the blonde hair… ;) I just said she reminds me of one of those Swedish/Danish type people. :)


Nathan Teasdale Mottram January 8, 2010 at 7:03 pm

seriously people just because someone has blonde hair and bright does not make you sweedish or whatever that would make me and all my family sweedish which were not were english

Jen January 8, 2010 at 6:55 pm

my hair goes slightly lighter than my natural brown in the summer-to golden blonde.

ethnic January 8, 2010 at 11:31 am

thats interesting Paul. my cousin’s son is a quarter Asian and 3 quarters caucasian and he has blonde hair and green eyes. I cant beleive we are related.

Paul. January 8, 2010 at 5:33 am

I’m part Asian and mine goes kinda blonde-ish in Summer. ;o

ethnic January 8, 2010 at 3:15 am

Kira, oic. being Asian my natural hair color will always be black, until I start going gray. (starting to happen) ;)


*im*kira* January 7, 2010 at 4:16 pm

I have long, really dark hair, at the moment,lmao i have no clue my natural colour:/

ethnic January 7, 2010 at 12:06 pm

No very short hair how about you Kira?

*im*kira* January 6, 2010 at 9:17 pm

ha its alright:P do you have long hair or something,if you ont mind me asking?

ethnic January 6, 2010 at 11:55 am

hey kira, yeh I look like a big blob in my avatar lol


Jen January 6, 2010 at 5:16 am

I didn’t exactly say it was the blonde hair-I said thats might what of tempted me :) But I still think she looks very scandanavian-mainly swedish :)

Paul¬! January 6, 2010 at 4:15 am

Am I the only one who thinks she has that cheeky Irish look going on? o_O
Must be because I see girls who look like her all the time. :P
I don’t think that just because someone has blonde hair that makes them Swedish-looking. Then my whole family would look Swedish. :/ :o

im kira January 5, 2010 at 10:43 pm

like whoa, ethnic, we finally see you:P

Jen January 5, 2010 at 9:40 pm

Yeah she does look a little like Melissa George…Can’t see much resemblance to scarlett!

Anonymous January 5, 2010 at 9:32 pm

She looks like Scarlett Johansson, I guess.

ethnic January 5, 2010 at 9:29 pm

She kinda looks like Aussie actress Melissa George


Anonymous January 5, 2010 at 9:29 pm

Her eyes isn’t blue. I’m pretty sure.

Jen January 5, 2010 at 9:23 pm

i’m sure her eyes are green-blue…!

I think she looks swedish though, just my opinion. Maybe its the blonde hair. And i guess a little danish.

Anonymous January 5, 2010 at 9:02 pm

I love her green eyes. :)

Anonymous January 5, 2010 at 8:57 pm

She’s really beautiful. I think she looks more danish than swedish, look at Scarlett Johansson.

Marc February 12, 2011 at 12:04 am

Danish?… Swedish?… lol… It’s a stereotypical shit!

in fact Robb looks like mostly Western Europeans.

ethnic January 5, 2010 at 8:15 pm

She definitely has that Nordic look Jen


Jen January 5, 2010 at 7:53 pm

She has a very good mix, thats for sure! Looking very Swedish too…
