he is fluent in Welsh language

His first name “Ioan”, is an equivalent of “John”, and “Gruffudd” corresponds to the anglicised “Griffith”.

There is no proof that any amount of Sarmatian or Scynthian blood of significant amount influenced the British gene pool. That is a myth!!! Some were probably taken to England by the Romans (as in the movie) but not in any amount to influence the blood pool. There is a better chance that Italian blood was an influence.

Bretons, Picts and Welsh share great part of their DNA with the Portuguese, Galician, and Nothern Spaniards, as well as with the Irish, like Colin Farrell, Sean Connery, Catherine Zeta-Jones, for example

No! They’re a mixture of green and brown so I would say hazel. Plus liked him in King Arthur playing a Sarmatian Scythian who are my ancestors.
