True he looks like a typical Scottish person he looks very Scottish he doesn’t have freckles like stereotype Scottish people do freckles is a Scottish trait not a Irish trait Irish people don’t have freckles.

Check7t August 27, 2014 at 6:42 am

Shitty actor!

WTF December 27, 2014 at 8:41 pm

Yeah, but who really cares when he has a face like that…

JasonBaker May 15, 2014 at 1:57 pm

He might not be the best actor on Earth (I’m not saying he’s bad tho), but he sure is hot as hell!

Princess June 14, 2014 at 1:50 am

I agree with you. Him, Ian Somerhalder, and Zac Efron look like hot brothers.

roman2886 December 27, 2014 at 4:30 am

5 actors look Zac Efron one of them is Rob Lowe he could be his dad.

ashash December 27, 2014 at 9:06 pm

Chiseled faced white guys with blue eyes.

andrew February 5, 2014 at 6:20 am

huge eyebrows


ihatemostpeople February 24, 2014 at 6:56 am

And how the hell can you tell a Scottish person from an English person? They’re both white! All white people look the same, idiot.

ihatemostpeople February 24, 2014 at 6:56 am

I’m not being racist btw. It’s true.

Gurrl February 24, 2014 at 2:35 pm

“all white people look the same, idiot” i beg to differ…


andrew February 25, 2014 at 7:34 am

actually blacks or Asian tend to look the same more than white ppl, even though it’s true that’s hard to distinguish a Scot from an English

Princess June 14, 2014 at 1:51 am

“Gurrl” don’t be a c*nt. Some people cannot tell White people apart. I can, but there are some people who cannot. Mostly minorities.

Gurrl July 10, 2014 at 7:36 pm

@Princess Don’t tell me to be a c*nt when i merely said the same thing someone said to me first.

Cossette271 August 31, 2014 at 8:24 pm

You are being racist and you know it (unless you are also a complete idiot) I see you around here talking a lot of shit and that needs to stop, now. You are a ignorant, racist and mean little person that needs a life. Your username says it all.

Vadius November 14, 2012 at 9:35 am

He’s not german, correction

Anglo July 17, 2012 at 8:35 am

This site is so ridiculous. It guesses ancestries based on nothing but Surnames, that are not good representations all the time.

Chace Crawford is Scottish.

Its ridiculous to say he’s English just because the surnames are English. You realize the majority of Scots are culturaly linked to the English and much of them have English surnames just like the Irish. The most common surnames in Scotland ARE English.

There is not even a “McC” sounding name anywhere in the top 10 most common surnames of Scotland.

Anyway Chace definately has the look of a Scot.

roman2886 May 15, 2014 at 4:00 pm

he defiantly looks Scottish he doesn’t look English but i can’t tell the difference between an English and a Scottish my dad was of was a similar background English Irish Scottish Welsh Austrian and German mainly but he had 7 nationalities but he looked Scottish but he looked a Scottish Irish mix even he was mainly of English Irish Scottish Welsh Austrian and German ancestry and born in England my great grandfather was Scottish Irish mix he was half Scottish half Irish this guy defiantly look likes a Scottish Northern Irish mix but he looks Scottish.
