He looks a lot like the actor Dominic West in that photo. But i’m surprised by the ‘just English’ heritage. Thought he might be an ethnic Jew, Romanian or Armenian or something.

Thought he was Spanish or Mestizo. A very surprising one.

his facial structure look very British and i don’t know how to explain it but a lot of Brits have that face

yup, and yes, folks many British people have this phenotype. I would advise everyone who puts a comment on ‘he/she has dark hair, he must be Latin’ to look up virtually every famous British/Irish celeb. The VAST majority are brunette, and even very dark hair is extremely common.
