  1. She has very dark eyes for a european

    those europeans who have dark brown eyes can be found in italy or spain and not so much in those mentioned countries where she had her descent

    1. Her eyes color is brown. I’ve seen and I know a lot of Swedes, Germans, and English with brown eyes. You think we caucasians are perfect. Blue eyes and blond hair is unusual even in Europe.

  2. On her father’s side, Bridgit has German, English, Scottish, and French ancestry.

    Bridgit’s paternal grandparents were Edward Charles Mendler, Jr. (the son of Edward Charles Mendler and Constance) and Anne Raeder (the daughter of Oscar Jacob Raeder and Mildred Munro Woodsum).

    Edward (Bridgit’s great-grandfather) was the son of German immigrants, while Constance’s father was born in France and Constance’s mother was born in New York. Oscar was of German descent, while Mildred was of mostly English, as well as distant Scottish, ancestry. Mildred’s family had long lived in New England.

    correction

      1. Yeah, if you go to peoplefinders, you’ll see Bridgit and her parents, Sandra Ford Mendler and Edward Charles Mendler III, are the only Mendlers listed in Mill Valley (some websites incorrectly call her parents Harry Mendler and Leah, but I can find no evidence that such people exist).

        I guess I should have put in that her mother’s name was “Ford”, but it didn’t seem to tell me much.

        Edward Charles Mendler, the first, the second, and III, were / are the only people with such names to ever live in the U.S., as far as I can tell. So clearly her dad, Edward Charles Mendler III, was the son of Edward Charles Mendler, Jr.

      1. that’s an unusual name for a German actress. Actually I googled her name coz I havent a clue. Wiki says “with austrian and hungarian origin”..interesting

      2. I’m from germany and i ask myself why you mention GUNDIS ZAMBO ?

        she is not a real celeb

        she had a third class show when i was 5years old :-)) haha

        and later ZAMBO had another show on a channel 33
        not really famous

        but how it come you mentioned her?

        GUNDIS ZAMBO has very dark eyes i doubt that she is only of auistrian and hungarian
