    He is 11% Jordan and 7% Mexico according to a DNA test. So he DOES have arab genes and apperantly a distant mestizo ancestor. https://www.antena3.com/programas/arbol-vida/antonio-banderas/el-test-de-adn-confirma-la-procedencia-mexicana-de-antonio-banderas_2017032858dae4b00cf2f510fd86b6bf.html

    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.
