Evan Peters Celebrates His 25th Birthday at RPM Nightclub in Las Vegas on January 28, 2012

Place of Birth: St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.

Date of Birth: January 20, 1987

Ethnicity: German

Evan Peters is an American actor. A picture of Evan with his parents can be seen here.

Evan’s maternal grandfather was Thomas Nicholas DeWald, Sr. (the son of Nickolaus/Nicholas DeWald/DeWalt and Katherine “Katie”/”Kate” Becker). Thomas was born in Missouri, to ethnic German parents. Nickolaus was born in Dolaț/Dolacz in Timiș County, Romania, the son of Johann/John/Hans Theobald/Dewald and Katharina/Katherine Krummenacker. Evan’s great-grandmother Katherine Becker was from Sânnicolau Mare/Nagyszentmiklós in Timiș County, Romania, and was the daughter of Johan/John Becker and Juliana/Julia Boehmer.

Evan’s maternal grandmother was Katherine E. Miller (the daughter of Nicholas Miller and Theresa Zornick). Katherine was born in Missouri, to ethnic German parents from Covaci, Romania. Nicholas was the son of Mathias A. Mueller and Catharina Bodjen.

Two of Evan’s paternal great-grandparents possibly were Henry W. Peters and Elizabeth Regina Gebhart, who were born in Illinois, both of them to parents of German origin. If Henry and Elizabeth are Evan’s great-grandparents, then Evan is a third cousin, once removed, of actor Tom Welling. Tom’s paternal great-great-grandparents, Johann/John Heinrich/Henry Welling and Euphemia Maria Maier, were the maternal grandparents of Henry W. Peters.

> No, but I think there are other profiles here with ethnic German ancestry from South-East Europe

Handsome!! I love his smile

NO CHANCE that he is only german

DEWALD is not a german surname and he looks rather exotic for a german with his curly hair

andrew May 26, 2016 at 3:13 pm

DeWald could be Dutch. His hair are wavy, not curly.

I doubt it’s of Dutch origin here, given that his “DeWald” ancestors were from Hungary or Romania.

Well, he’s definitely at least 1/4 German.

Ajaxfan October 25, 2015 at 6:46 am

Looking at his surname, he probably has Dutch ancesters

Devotion October 17, 2015 at 5:49 pm

looks like a butch lesbian

abelleza August 5, 2015 at 2:19 pm

Why even bother doing him a profile if you literally have no clue??? To me he has a look of the french to him.

He’s scary looking. Him and Emma Roberts make an ugly couple, she’s ugly too.

Ajaxfan October 25, 2015 at 6:50 am

Emma is hot af

racist prick

If we’re talking about Even Peters’ last name, Peters could also possibly be Dutch or Scottish.

bearboy February 18, 2015 at 9:38 am
