"If I Stay" Los Angeles Premiere - Arrivals

Birth Name: Jamie Alexander Blackley

Place of Birth: Douglas, Isle of Man

Date of Birth: 8 July, 1991

Ethnicity: English, Irish

Jamie Blackley is a British actor. He was born in Douglas, on the Isle of Man, and was raised in south London, England. He has English and Irish ancestry.

Jamie’s patrilineal line can be traced back to his great-great-great-great-grandparents, James Blackley, who was born, c. 1780, in Kent, England, and to James’s wife, Sarah Ruff.

Jamie’s paternal grandfather was Frederick Blackley (the son of Alfred George Edwin Blackley and Elizabeth Flora Molineaux). Frederick was born in St. Olave Bermondsey, London. Alfred was the son of Alfred Blackley and Sarah Sear. Elizabeth was the daughter of Stephen Molineaux and Elizabeth McDonald. Jamie’s Molineaux line has been in England since at least the late 1780s, and most Molineaux families have been English since at least the 1500s.

Jamie’s paternal grandmother was Irene Frances Hay (the daughter of Edward Robert Hay and Frances Ada Durnford). Irene was born in Greenwich, London. Edward was the son of John W. Hay and Catherine Stewart. Frances Durnford was the daughter of Ernest Alfred Durnford and Emily Margaret King.

Jamie’s maternal grandparents are possibly Arthur McCourt and Jean F. Ball.

andrew July 23, 2017 at 8:54 am

What do you mean for “from Morocco”? He does not look Moroccan at all.

neiltennant July 23, 2017 at 6:25 am

i admit in LONDON or manchester he would be consider a WHITE

but in the US many people would think he is mexican

And once again we see the dark ‘Mediterranean’ strain that is actually pretty common in the British Isles and Ireland. And once again, we have people imagining everyone there has blond or red hair and light eyes. Sigh.

Capricious October 11, 2015 at 12:15 am

He doesn’t look Mediterranean at all.

He looks Central Asian – Afghan, Tajik, Iranian….something like that.

@ capricious



his mom’s first name is Marina. What is her maiden name?

“McCourt”. That’s why I wrote “Jamie’s maternal grandparents were possibly Arthur McCourt and Jean F. Ball.”

His mother is British for sure.

andrew November 16, 2015 at 3:58 pm

I asked because reading “possibly” I wondered if you were sure. Btw do we have any real Afghan celeb on the site?

@Andrew, the awkward moment when an Afghan (that Follers linked) is lighter than Jamie.

You’re pathetic.

i know saying THE ANOTHER GUY JAMIE CULLUM does not look white

and everybody screamed at me

now we know he is also Indian and Jewish


neiltennant July 20, 2018 at 12:30 pm

it is not common

a time I thought it too

but people with that dark look have Jewish, Spanish or other foreign blood

for a while a friend of mine claimed that JAMIE CULLUM MIRANDA COSGROVE and pete doherty were average Irish looking people
at that time there was not a hint about their ethnicity
now we know that those 3 are mixed

He has interesting nose, looks African influenced.

M May 31, 2015 at 8:30 am

*an interesting nose, my mistake

Very odd features for a Manx person. His eyelids are atypical to Central Asians, like Tajiks and Uzbeks.

But then again, these people are rare in the Western World and Hollywood. So I would’ve thought that he was native South American mixed with European (Spanish and maybe even Anglo-Celtic)…

thomas1987 October 30, 2014 at 3:23 am

so in your definition anyone with brown hair and brown eyes is Mexican
i guess most people in Europe are Mexican
because brown hair is most common as well as brown eyes in every race.

FYI Mexican is not a race

alberto.r7 March 17, 2015 at 7:14 am

For some ignorants or you have blond hair with blue eyes or you are Mexican. The worst is that Mexican is not a race, it is only a nationality, in fact, there are white Mexicans, mestizos and native american Mexicans.

neiltennant December 8, 2017 at 4:43 am

come on you are the ignorant one

most Mexicans are typical and associated with darker features

if someone calls you Mexican you know that you are not blond and blue eyed

fuzzybear44 December 8, 2017 at 2:07 pm


Quote(if someone calls you Mexican you know that you are not blond and blue eyed)

They may be associated with darker features, However Mexico has had pretty much every ethnic background from different types of( Europeans, Africans, Asians etc.) running through there, and These people believe in mixing. So you’ll have blond,red head, blue eyed, green etc in the mexican population. There’s a natural blond hair, blue eyed mexican woman across the street from me.

WTF October 6, 2014 at 12:42 am

He looks Mexican.

andrew October 7, 2014 at 7:23 am

he’s Manxican

follers July 11, 2015 at 3:06 am

I don’t think he is even Manx, much less Manxican. I don’t think Tom Holland is actually Manx, either. Sorry, Manx people.
