She’s too dark to be either.

She looks Pakistani or Persian.

She is the daughter of Wendy Ann (Steffer) and Jeff Stuart Korman.

Due to the lack of records of a “Wendy Steffer” born in 1950, i suspect Lindsay’s mother changed her birth name, from something like “Stefanopoulos”.

Her own words:
“I’m Greek, Italian and Jewish. In TV Guide they wrote that I was French, Greek and Jewish. I am mostly Greek. I don’t know where French came from.”

Personally I find her terribly unattractive.

I see veins sticking out of her forehead and the oily skin doesn’t help.

Looks Lebanese or Assyrian. Could easily pass as these two.

I miss her and the soap opera passions. I used to think her character was a bit nutty tho. That was a cool soap.

cwm85 August 23, 2015 at 7:15 pm

I bet she’s more greek than Italian. Can totally understand the latina roles she plays.

andrew August 23, 2015 at 6:22 pm

greek or italian is not confirmed though

follers August 23, 2015 at 6:39 pm

I doubt she made it up.

andrew August 23, 2015 at 6:49 pm

how many Greeks are there in Southern California? I also don’t buy Pia Mia Perez is 1/4 Italian, even though anything is possible.

Devotion October 25, 2015 at 7:16 pm

Of course not. God forbid that Greek & Italians would look as dark as her. Must be her Jewish side. Because you know, Jews are from the Middle East and they will be dark.

Greeks and Italians look like Swedes! So she can’t be Italian/Greek. She’s too dark, so she CAN’T! Okay?

*sips drink*

Looks totally European.

ses101 December 24, 2017 at 8:30 am

Yes, South East European.

cwm85 August 1, 2015 at 7:19 pm

Definitely greek and Italian. That mix will definitely give her roles as a latina but once I look at her she clearly isn’t mestizo.

M July 27, 2015 at 8:34 pm

She looks like she’s mixed with Black,

perez-richart August 1, 2015 at 7:03 pm

she is tanned not black

cwm85 August 1, 2015 at 7:16 pm

M is a troll that thinks everyone is part black. Ignore her.

beyfox April 16, 2013 at 5:02 pm

very exotic,maybe because of her Jewish side. I thought she was Puerto Rican(spanish,black and taino)

kay January 16, 2014 at 6:39 am
