He’s got an olive skin hasn’t he? In that respect he reminds me of another person from Northern Ireland, George Best:


I remember an Irish reporter interviewing Best – he said he looked more like an Italian than Irish! Didn’t understand it then, but now I guess its the Scottish influence (https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2012/aug/15/scotland-dna-study-project).

1 he does not have “olive” skin
2 he does not look like George Best
3 I doubt an Irish reporter said such thing

It looks like it to me. Bests look speaks for itself. And the reporter did write it.

How about Rory Best then?:

Jamie Dornan -> young Colin Firth. I think it’s time to stop trolling Northern Irish or Scottish people.

Wow, this is a terrible picture of him, didn’t even recognize it was him. Ethnic you shouldn’t be wasting your money on such un-photogenic shots my man!

andrew December 8, 2014 at 5:49 am

agree, it seems he/she/? enjoys uploading the WORST pics every time

The lighting is a little dark but otherwise this is a great picture.

ethnic December 8, 2014 at 7:18 am

I don’t see anything wrong with this pic.

andrew December 8, 2014 at 10:12 am

the lighting. He seems to be under a shadow

Well, I understand you pay money for these pictures, I wouldn’t want you to squander your money on bad shots. I see un-photogenic pictures occasionally (Angelina Jolie, James Franco, etc) as I comprehend getting a good visual of someone’s physiognomy is important, but the photo should also be good too.

I just checked prphotos and it seems this was the only one available at the time.

It just seems like sometimes you select pictures of people when they’re making an odd countenance or experimenting with a new hairstyle (like the Gerard Butler picture he has curly hair) and not usual pictures we’re used to seeing of the person.

Really? I mean the guy isn’t the type I’d go for, but I gotta admit that he looks gorgeous in this picture. Very symmetrical face. I’d prefer smaller eyes though. lol

He was really good playing the serial killer in The Fall with Gillian Anderson.

He looks like Henry Cavill not in this picture but in other pictures
