Jesse Bradford is an American actor. He is the son of actors Terri/Terry Porter and Curt Watrouse (Curtis Allyn John Watrouse).

Jesse’s paternal grandfather was from a family that has lived in New England since the 1600s; Jesse’s grandfather was of English, and 1/16th German, descent. Jesse’s paternal grandmother was English. It is not publicly known what Jesse’s mother’s lineage is.

Jesse’s patrilineal line can be traced back to Jacob Waterhouse, who was born, c. 1606, in England (the surname Watrouse was Waterhouse generations back).

Why nothing about Terry Porter’s side? She’s not a nobody.

Looks like Charles Cotesworth Pinckney.

British people can be alpine, gracile med, borreby… he looks british but not average for his ethnicity.

Are there any pictures of Jesse’s parents available?

andrew November 14, 2015 at 12:39 pm

yes, he looks somewhat Mediterranean but he could be just of British Isles descent (with some German too)

Capricious October 10, 2015 at 11:56 pm

This sexy, very Greek-Italian looking man is 100% Northern European…Lol

The “possibly other” (or his mother’s ancestry) would definitely include Mediterranean ethnicities.

LOL, that rage. Get over it haha. I can tell you have issues.

celebfan September 13, 2015 at 6:33 pm

Has anyone tried to learn what his mother’s ancestry? He looks like he’s part Italian.

someone from the internet September 7, 2014 at 1:02 pm

He looks like a Castizo to me. I knew a guy who looked similar. He was half white and half Mexican. Many Castizos look Italian.

Also, Jesse resembles Freddy Prinze Jr. who is part Puerto Rican. Another actor he resembles is Mexican actor Jesse Garcia.

He’s not “Italian” and a castizo shows Amerindian influence (although not as significant as a mestizo) and this guys shows none.

flo June 6, 2017 at 9:04 pm

Doesn’t “castizo” mean pure Spanish though?

Check7t July 9, 2014 at 11:14 pm

“1 64/th German”

Lol, really?

Handsome man.

Marseille June 14, 2014 at 12:31 pm

I would have guessed him as an Italian tbh.

Marseille June 14, 2014 at 12:30 pm

He looks like a Spaniard or Italian.

ihatemostpeople June 13, 2014 at 11:31 pm

He looks Italian.

WTF May 31, 2014 at 7:51 am

he’s cute for a white dude

lmfao sorry it’s just that most white men aren’t attractive. the only sexy ones are the celebrities. everyday white men that aren’t famous are ugly.

Capricious October 10, 2015 at 11:57 pm

I agree. But then again Meds/Middle Easterners are “white” anyway….so….

What about Colin Farrel? Who is a “dark Irish”.

Hill May 19, 2017 at 5:56 pm

What’s a dark Irish? someone who has a tan? Most Irish men have black hair anyway so I’m confused by your logic.

Anyone know anything about Jesse’s mother’s ancestry?

scott May 29, 2014 at 11:24 pm
