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.

romanian or armenian

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

exactly my views

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.

I agree Stonelord. While it wouldn’t have surprised me if Dominic did have some foreign blood, people need to realise that there is no set look or colouring here in the UK. We aren’t like Iceland where almost everyone came in from Scandinavia – the Celts and Normans often had dark hair.
