Chris Pratt is the most famous Norwegian since Erik the Red. Bearboy, you must be kevlling.

bearboy June 15, 2015 at 8:00 pm

Oh well I can still attempt to be the most famous 100% Norwegian person out there. being that Chris Pratt is only half :-)

follers June 15, 2015 at 9:53 pm

Being Norwegian goes through the mother. So Chris is considered 100% Norwegian.

bearboy June 16, 2015 at 6:58 pm

lol sounds almost like we’re talking about religion. BTW Follers mind adding Lily Rabe from The Whispers and American Horror Story. I think she is a quarter Ashkenazi Jewish but that’s about it.

bearboy June 16, 2015 at 7:01 pm

oh wait I see her mother’s profile I think. http://ethnicelebs.com/jill-clayburgh

He looks mostly Nordic to me. He’s my favorite actor at the moment! Awesome funny guy!

I wonder if I am related to Chris Pratt because my grand father (Greg Applen) has taken me to his parents grave in harmony Minnesota and I remember seeing a Tosten Ole Applen.

Is your grandfather Gregory, the son of Neil Applen?

If so, you and Chris would be fourth cousins, once removed (Chris’s great-great-great-grandparents, Ola Torsteinson Applen and Ambjorg Oldsdatter Forlid, are your great-great-great-great-grandparents, assuming Neil is your great-grandfather).

He’s so English looking.

His paternal grandfather’s mother Alice Mattson’s surname sounds a little Swedish. Because “Mattsson” and “Mattson” is a popular surname in Sweden. So he maybe can be of swedish descent to? (sorry for bad english http://www.houseofnames.com/mattson-family-crest/Swedish

It was really “Mattison”.
