Maybe her ‘Polish’ ancestors were Jewish and not ethnic Poles? That would explain her dark looks.

andrew November 5, 2016 at 7:46 am

she is 1/4 Polish. There are Poles and other Eastern Euros with her complexion though.

If by Eastern Euros you mean Bulgarians and other Balkan people, yes. But Poles, Russians and Baltic people, not really, they are among the lightest people on Earth.

I have a Polish friend from Pleszew. She has natural platinum blond hair and very light complexion. I checked her Polish friends on Facebook, and they’re mostly brunettes, with a similar pigmentation to Missy Peregrym (but different features, expecially the nose).

Here is a Polish actress. Her colouring is not that different from Missy Peregrym.

I believe she is part French-Canadian on her mother’s side

I also believe her ”Polish” ancestors were Rusyn.

Why Rusyn?

bablah November 5, 2016 at 7:03 pm

Either Rusyn or Lemko. Polish people wouldn’t go to a Ukrainian church. Plus Semen (Semyon) isn’t a Polish name, it would be Szymon in Polish, no? And Peregrym is a Rusyn last name (but that’s the least important reason).

Yes, when I added this profile I thought that a Pole who practiced Ukrainian Pentecostalism was odd.

You’re going to have to tell me what’s on there. I can’t access it.
