Correct the following:
Birth Name: José Antonio Domínguez Bandera
Place of Birth: Málaga, Málaga, Spain
Switch his date of birth to DMY
and maternal grandfather’s last name to Bandera

Add Andalusian as part of his Spanish ancestry.

His father, José Domínguez Prieto, was a police officer. His mother, Ana Bandera Gallego, was a school teacher.

Isabel’s last name is Prieto.

Spaniards oft look non-white.

Not really, unless they’re ethnically Gypsy/Romani. An Ethnic Spaniard looks fully European/white. Antonio Banderas isn’t an exception. He looks like what he is, a Southern White. He just tans a ton. His natural skin colour is a lighter olive than that. Also, he actually looks slightly more Italian than Spanish, IMO.

He isn’t always tanned. And I think that this picture would be an interesting profile picture here:

He looks rather white.
