Callan McAuliffe

by follers on October 13, 2012

Birth Name: Callan Ryan Claude McAuliffe

Place of Birth: Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Date of Birth: 24 January, 1995

Ethnicity: Irish, with some Sephardi Jewish, English, and Northern Irish

Callan McAuliffe is an Australian actor. Two of his grandparents were Irish.

According to the IMDB, Callan is descended from Joseph Augustus Henriques, the first Consul for the United States in Australia (being appointed to his post, in Melbourne, in 1852). Joseph was a Sephardi Jew, born in Jamaica. Joseph’s wife, Louisa Leah Lopez, was also a Sephardi Jew from Jamaica. Louisa’s father, Isaac Lopez, was a rabbi. Joseph and Louisa were Callan’s great-great-great-grandparents, meaning that Callan is of at least one sixteenth Sephardi Jewish ancestry. Callan’s Jewish family also lived in Curaçao, Spain, Portugal, and Barbados.

Callan’s great-grandparents were Claude Augustus Henriques and Jessie Rita Lloyd. Claude was the son of Frederick Augustus Henriques, who was Sephardi Jewish, and of Florinda “May” Lister Montgomery, whose parents were from Northern Ireland. Callan’s great-grandmother Jessie was of English origin, and was the daughter of Reginald Walter Lloyd and Mary Craw. Callan also likely has other English ancestry.

And as he gets older, he will look even better.

he’s gorgeous

correction; he definitely has light hair but I don’t think it deserves the title of blond, I mean his eyes are quite a solid brown, too dark to see on a natural blonde, I think the title light brown (brunet) is more fitted to him

Attractive too, especially in a man.

I have doubts this guy is a blond (now), it depends by the pic
If you condiser him blond, why did you write “brown hair” in Tim Roth profile who actually is blond?

follers July 19, 2013 at 1:25 pm

I don’t know, I just go by what they look like in most movies I have seen them in? Callan normally looks blond, Tim Roth looks like some kind of brown?

andrew July 20, 2013 at 5:41 am

Callan can’t challenge Tim Roth atm, that is blonde as even imdb says

follers July 20, 2013 at 1:35 pm

I don’t see it, but I changed Tim Roth’s hair color to blond anyway. Just don’t say that Tim is Jewish.

Sorry I don’t want to offend but males are blond and females blonde.

Alice October 16, 2012 at 6:18 am

Thanks follers. It is in very common usage. I’m not really a fanatic about words but blonde is definitely reserved to describe a female.

From the article above.
“I didn’t really like my Sydney accent – nobody likes the sound of their own voice – and when I was a little younger tried to change my accent gradually,” he explains. “But I’ve only ever really lived in Sydney and Los Angeles, so I haven’t been influenced by the accents of some far-off land.” And yet he has Irish grandparents, and suspects there might be an influence, or identification, coming down the genetic line. And then there are his friends.
I don’t know if it is accessible from that link.

Keech his mother’s name is an English name. I haven’t been able to find out anything definite about his mother’s ancestry.
