sorry my fault

i always saw pics where i couldn’t see his eyes and he was tanned

Finnish people don’t tan.

No, they do. Any person under sun exposure can tan. Obviously Finns don’t have the same tanning abilities of Portuguese, Cypriots or Sardinians, but they tan a bit.

I’ve watched a Luca Guadagnino’s movie starring Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton.I don’t remember the title atm. But I can tell you that Tilda was tanned in that movie. He was shot in Pantelleria maybe. So if Tilda Swinton can tan anybody can do.

I have also randomly seen a reality show series which is marketed under the title “The Island of Adam and Eve” or something. Well there where old Finnish folks and they where somewhat tanned.

*they were

I was joking. But although I can only speak from my own experience, most Finnish people, or people of Finnish descent, I’ve met has had very pale skin and don’t tan well.

“they do”. Don’y you mean “we do”? I though you were Finnish.

I am stateless.

his hair is possibly dyed

andrew September 24, 2018 at 10:04 am

Not sure about his natural hair colour (a sort of light brown/auburn maybe) but he kinda looks pan- Northern Euro, rather than a stereotypical Finnish dude.
