Redruello is a common surname in Asturias (north part of Spain), probably his mother’s side comes from there, but I’m not sure, I’ll try to find some more info about it.

Finally found an old interview from 2008. He says that his grandmother is from Cordoba (south Spain). So I guess we can say he’s basque and andalucian.


Question no.17

– Man from the north, still can’t stand cold weather?

– I can’t! Mi grandma is from Cordoba, it might come from there.

In Spain, the mother’s name comes last, his father’s family name is Kortajarena.

Are his cheekbones legit?

well, with the helping hands of his facial hair xD…
his beard underlines his cheekbones.

“CORRECTION” The ethnicity should be changed simply for “Spanish” or if you want “Spanish Basque and other Spanish”. Obviously Redruello is a non-basque Spanish surname.
