Paul Walker was an American actor. He was known for starring in the highly successful The Fast and the Furious franchise, among many other roles.

Paul was the son of Cheryl (Crabtree), a model, and Paul William Walker, a contractor and boxer who was a Golden Gloves champion. Among his siblings is actor Cody Walker. Paul was of mostly English ancestry, with a smaller amount of German roots, and distant Swiss-German ancestry. His ancestry included (relatively) recent immigrants from England and Germany, as well as English roots from ancestors who had long lived in New England, and elsewhere in the United States.

Paul had a daughter, Meadow.

Paul’s paternal grandfather had a boxing career as “Irish” Billie Walker, but it does not seem that he had any Irish ancestry. Paul Walker (the actor) had stated that his own ancestry was partly Irish, but no traceable Irish ancestry has yet been documented for Paul Walker.

Paul’s paternal grandfather was Paul William Walker II (the son of Paul William Walker and Harriett June Willey). Paul’s great-grandfather Paul Walker was born in Wisconsin, the son of George Walker and Anna Augusta Tilley, who were from England, with Ann having been born in Clerkenwell, Middlesex. Harriett was born in Illinois, as was Harriett’s father, Charles Leon Willey (Charles’s parents were Ebenezer “Eben”/”Eban” Glover Willey and Ellen “Nellie” Augusta Hopkins); Paul’s great-great-grandfather Charles was of English descent, and his parents’ families had long been established in New England. Harriett’s mother, Ella Pearl Clark, was from Pennsylvania.

Paul’s paternal grandmother was June Vivian Oefinger (the daughter of Alma “Elmer” John Oefinger and Elizabeth “Betsey” Idell Spooner). Alma was the daughter of Johannes “John” Oefinger, a German immigrant, from Trossingen, Wuerttemberg, and of Louisa Ann Stark, who was born in Deerfield, Massachusetts, to German immigrants, Ludwig “Lewis” Frederick Stark and Mary/Marie Rechert/Richert. Betsey was the daughter of William Hampton Spooner and Annie Woodruff Smith, who were both from families long-resident in the United States, and of English descent.

Paul’s maternal grandfather was George Milton Crabtree (the daughter of Louis F. Crabtree and Nina Letha Price).

Paul’s maternal grandmother was Viola Annalea/Ann Smith (the daughter of Lester Orville Smith and Hazel Clarinda Mitchell). Lester was the son of George Wesley Smith and Frances Ellen Newman. Hazel was the daughter of Henry Sewell Mitchell and Hattie Belle Hazelwood. Paul’s maternal grandmother’s ancestry is heavily English, with more distant Swiss-German and German roots.

Was he now? Perhaps you could kindly point out one of that ilk who looks like him?

roman2886 March 7, 2015 at 5:27 am

If you have English Irish German and Swiss ancestry your pretty much all german or should i say pretty much Anglo Saxon German Swiss and Celtic Gaelic your not naturally Celtic Germanic unless you have Englis Irish Scottish and Welsh ancestry if your English without a drop of Scottish and Welsh ancestry your pretty much pure Anglo Saxon ancestry having Irish German and Swiss ancestry is not going too make your Celtic Germanic since you have very litte Celtic blood your mostly Germanic if you have English Irish Scottish Welsh German and Swedish you have very litte English blood.

falisio June 29, 2015 at 11:46 am

Nope new studies show the English are only 25% German and 45% French.

Alice June 29, 2015 at 8:17 pm

Let’s see a link for that. I’ve seen the PoBI study and it doesn’t say that at all.

Alice June 29, 2015 at 8:18 pm

Celtic and Germanic blood is a lot of tosh.

falisio June 30, 2015 at 9:15 am

As if it wasn’t blatantly obvious because for one the English do not look much like their Germanic neighbours the Scandinavians and north Germans. More English people have more medium features and look like northern French people than they do Scandinavians. Britain has been invaded and conquered multiple times and one of them was by the French. The extreme number of latin and french words in England is testament to the French influence on them not just culturally but genetically.

Alice July 1, 2015 at 1:15 am

Most of the French influence on English is from the Normans and you would need to take with a pinch of salt any genetic study published in the press as they tend to sensationalise as I’ve said previously. You remind me of someone from some other forums who likes to say how ugly the British are and how they don’t have anything to do with Germanics or Scandinavians. The Northern French have definitely made a contribution to the genetics of all the British Isles but there were also others as I’ve posted in my response to you regarding Brad Pitt. Commonsense really as they are island populations who would have been populated from the European continent.

joeytheking July 4, 2015 at 1:07 pm

@falisio and German are nationalities. The fact that English people share some of the same genes means nothing. The French and Germans are not one pure thing, they’re descended from various tribes of people with various haplogroups too. It’s as if you people can only give this type of bias towards people of English Ancestry. With this alone, I can not take people like you seriously.

gel November 14, 2015 at 5:08 pm

The French component of the English population mostly occurred pre-Roman. There were common tribes either side of the English channel.

gel August 13, 2015 at 3:13 pm

Yes – and the French came BEFORE the Romans!

And don’t forget the black element of English population!:

It was the german ancestry in him he looked very german typical german facial features he could have easily passed for east english lots of people in east england look like him he doesn’t look irish he also had swiss and irish ancestry not a bad mix.

gel March 17, 2015 at 4:01 pm

He’s got Irish eyes – sparkling blue. You don’t find that in England.

A user April 6, 2015 at 7:40 am

But he isnt irish

gel April 10, 2015 at 12:52 pm

Then why did he say he was?

A user April 10, 2015 at 4:05 pm

1. Lots of people claim ancestry which are either minimal or non existant

2. It clearly says hes English,German and Swiss German.

gel August 13, 2015 at 3:02 pm

But he’s got Irish eyes!

Alice August 13, 2015 at 8:24 pm

I really think a lot of people don’t know their ancestry really well and just go on what their families say. A lot of people haven’t researched their ancestry to a great extent. I don’t think people are deliberately lying but just misinformed. Even the people that say they are part Native American really believe they are because this is what they have been told by their families.

A user August 14, 2015 at 12:29 pm

What about his eyes are distinctly ‘Irish’?

crunty February 27, 2016 at 6:58 am

They’ve got shamrocks and four leaf clovers in them. Gel is as insane as they come.

Another Brit/English decent, whoever has been casting in Hollywood for the last , I don’t know 60 years or so has not been very fair or inclusive of other races/ethnicities. I guess it’s changing going on the last few years of movies but Damn there are a lot of British running through Hollywood according to the family trees.

roman2886 April 26, 2014 at 3:54 pm

He had no Swiss in him he was primarily English Irish and German.

roman2886 April 26, 2014 at 3:53 pm

Paul Walker had the same ethnic background as Tom Cruise English Irish German.

roman2886 April 18, 2014 at 9:28 am

He had Irish ancestry it’s been proven most Americans have Irish ancestry.

GLXY April 18, 2014 at 10:21 am

Doesn’t mean everyone has Irish ancestry

roman2886 April 26, 2014 at 3:52 pm

The Majority of Americans have Irish ancestry because Americans think it is cool too have Irish ancestry St patricks day is celebrated all over America lots of Americans have Irish ancestry i can’t think of any Americans who haven’t got a drop of Irish ancestry some Americans don’t have Irish ancestry i’m sorry too say this they are not cool enough the Americans should thank the Irish people.

follers April 14, 2014 at 11:01 pm

He said he was German as well. As for Irish, I can’t find any evidence of Irish ancestry.

Alice April 15, 2014 at 7:16 pm

I find it really strange that so many people think they have Irish ancestry and when checked they don’t!

Since I’ve been on this site quite a few people that were self stated as having Irish descent turn out to not. Some are of Scots-Irish ancestry but Paul wasn’t even Scots-Irish. I wonder what is the reason for this confusion?

follers April 15, 2014 at 8:38 pm

It must have something to do with his grandfather, the boxer with the “Irish” nickname. Back in those days, a lot of boxers received nicknames that weren’t factually accurate descriptions.

Alice April 16, 2014 at 12:49 am

That’s possible but I still find it odd that people add ancestry they don’t have. I know about the Native American thing and it could come from family folklore etc. With the Irish ancestry alot of the time it could be from people mistaking Scot-Irish as being Irish otherwise it is all a bit of a mystery to me.

Alice April 16, 2014 at 12:55 am

I think a lot of people just have preconceived ideas about nationalities. They think if someone doesn’t look like their perceptions of what a nationality is then they must have some other ethnicity. Paul Walker is mostly English so that can’t be disputed.

nathan tisdale-mottram March 23, 2014 at 3:54 pm

bunch of weird people. he looks typically English and he is English anything you say or do will not change this.

Check7t February 24, 2014 at 11:25 pm

Fine piece of ass!

Noah January 4, 2014 at 5:49 pm

Paul looks more Irish than English to me, maybe even scotish. but the long blonde hair does remind me of Kevin Costner or Rudi Voller! also, apparently the -er syntax is very prominent in german like welker, voller, costner; he could easily have a lot of germanic ancestory.

caliste February 15, 2014 at 11:25 am

You act like there’s some sort of difference between them. Scots, Irish, and English are virtually the same people all have celtic/germanic ancestry not just the English.

Anyway Paul looks mostly Germanic. Steinbeck (German American novelist) and Olof Mellberg (Swedish footballe) look EXACTLY like him. Which make me believe any Irish/English ancestry he has is probably of the part of Britain heavily of Germanic stock, because Paul looks nothing like most of the Brits who tend to look less Germanic than other Germanic regions such as Germany and Scandinavia.

Alice February 16, 2014 at 7:01 pm

he doesn’t look german at all. i live in germany i can tell you that I’ve never seen a man like him here before. i would say that he looks british…

what a loss. rip

caliste February 16, 2014 at 12:41 pm

John Steinbeck, German American

Looks exactly like Paul Walker. He looks far more German. Could pass in Scandinavia as well. Not many Brits look like Paul Walker at all. Brits aren’t that Germanic is most regions. Maybe in East England but ultimately someone like Gary Beadle aka Gaz from Geordie Shore is more representitive of what the average Brit looks like not Paul Walker. Most Brits are as Germanic looking a he is, maybe in the ancient times, noone do they look that way now have you been to Britain? most look more like the Beatles, dark hair and more dark looks.

follers February 16, 2014 at 7:26 pm

As I have said, John Steinbeck was of 1/4 German descent. The rest of his ancestry was from the British Isles.

scott February 25, 2014 at 8:55 pm

No they are not typical looking English ppl. Toby Stephens has a very English look and is by far the most common look youll see on the street for 30-45 year olds. If you notice British actors in British films typically have unique looks and not typical British, i guess directors like faces with personality for British roles. Whereas all the British actors who play Americans (and theres A LOT btw) actually do look British.

(heres a pic of Toby Stephens incase you’re wondering

andrew December 21, 2013 at 6:39 pm

Google “Olof Mellberg”, you know what I mean

brock December 24, 2013 at 10:13 am

Why do they call the Swedish National Rugby team, “The Barbarians”?

andrew December 24, 2013 at 5:59 pm

he’s a soccer player. Anyhow the Barbaric tribes cames from Scandinavia

Mario December 20, 2013 at 6:40 pm

Well, you can easily tell from his looks that he, as he said himself, is mostly of Irish decent. Just look at those good rugged masculine looks and great blue eyes. They are so typical of Irishmen. His Irish blood definitely dominates. I can’t see any English blood in his looks, maybe a bit of German. When I visited Ireland a few years ago, I saw many good-looking men of similar looks.

notional December 20, 2013 at 8:30 pm

His Irish ancestry isn’t even confirmed, so he isn’t mostly Irish. I’m not saying he doesn’t have Irish ancestry he likely does but Irish is falsely claimed more than Native American

ian December 21, 2013 at 10:33 am

I don’t see any English either, yes there’s some Irish but there seems to be a lot more German in his looks… it’s pretty hard to miss it.

scott December 21, 2013 at 11:18 am

Just because Germans were Nazi white supremacists doesn’t mean they look like what they think is superior, show me a pic of a German who looks like Paul Walker…. He’s 7/8 English and only 1/8 German so obviously he looks more English.

I think he looks Northern European (Swedish and Norwegian) more than anything and England was invaded by Vikings for centuries so there is Viking blood in England, but no Vikings invaded Germany which is why Germany has a similar amount of blue eyes as Southern Europe. I’ve been to both England and Germany and England has more Northern European looking people than Germany.

scott December 21, 2013 at 11:25 am

I do think he looks really British isles though, heres an example of a Northern European

They have almost asian eyes. Paul has the face structure, facial features and eye shape most often found in the British isles

ian December 21, 2013 at 1:37 pm

Just because you don’t like Germans, and like to bring up their Nazi past, doesn’t mean he doesn’t look German… anyone without a bias can easily recognize his Germanic features.

I’ve been to England and Germany too, the blonde hair alone is a dead give away, how many blondes are on the english national team? zero.

scott December 21, 2013 at 1:46 pm

Germans are not Germanic despite the name, Germanic tribes were situated in Denmark not Germany. Germany is in Central Europe and has had influence from all different kinds of ethnicities over the years, and are in no way, shape, or form “Germanic.” Most of the Germanic tribes went North to Scandinavia and west to the British Isles, which is why people of British Isles descent are more closely related to Scandinavians than Germans are

scott December 21, 2013 at 1:49 pm

and is also why the vast majority of the Nordic looking Americans turn out to be British isles descent and NOT German. And I brought up Nazis because they have brain washed people into thinking Germans are nordic when they’re not.

scott December 21, 2013 at 2:00 pm

Also the majority of the English football team arent ethnically English, the English rugby team would be a better example

ian December 21, 2013 at 2:19 pm

edit, maybe you should learn the definition of Germanic, hopefully you don’t really believe the stuff that comes out of your mouth.

yeah Nazi’s brainwashed people to thinking their Nordic haha… that’s a first, time for some medical attention?

scott December 21, 2013 at 3:00 pm

lol you’re mad because you know its true. Look up the definition of Germanic, they were tribes that resided in DENMARK and the majority either went north to Scandinavia or west to the British Isles. Some of the Germanic tribes that went west include the Anglos, Saxons, Jutes, and later Vikings. None of those settled in Germany, which is why blonde hair/blue eyes is more common in the British Isles than Germany.

scott December 21, 2013 at 3:04 pm

Those were all North Germanic tribes btw and no North Germanics settled in Germany only in Scandinavia and the British Isles. The only Germanics tribes who settled in Germany were Southern Germanics

ian December 21, 2013 at 3:19 pm

Oh I am the mad one? Looks like you’ve got it backwards again, your only making 3+ posts — to my one — vehemently trying to justify your false claims.

You’re so brainwashed, i don’t even know why i should have to be the one to correct you? how can one not know that the definition of Germanic includes > relating to Germany <.

of, relating to, or denoting the branch of the Indo-European language family that includes English, German, Dutch, Frisian, the Scandinavian languages, and Gothic.
having characteristics of or attributed to Germans or Germany.
"she had an almost Germanic regard for order"
the Germanic languages collectively."

What a surprise, all of the definitions of Germanic include Germany, FACT. Like I said… show me a definition that does not include Germany, now take your meds and piss off.

scott December 21, 2013 at 3:32 pm

well YOU’RE the one who says he doesn’t look English AND says he has Germanic features, and I proved that England is Germanic, and that he looks Scandinavian NOT German. English people are more closely to Scandinavians than Germans so he looks English not German.

Show me an example of a German who looks like Paul Walker, theres A LOT of British Isles and Scandinavians who look like him but I’ve never seen a German who does

scott December 21, 2013 at 3:38 pm

the British Isles clusters closer to Scandinavia than Germany does

ian December 21, 2013 at 3:40 pm

“Look up the definition of Germanic”

That is a direct quote from you, that’s what you told me to do — i did it, and it turns out i was right, and you were WRONG!

Now you want me to show you people that have blond hair and blue eyes that are German? hahahhaha jeez how about you show me some englishmen with blonde hair that are actually skinny and in shape lol

scott December 21, 2013 at 3:56 pm

I could show you pics of 100 English men who look like Paul Walker and youd still say “They must have German ancestry” or “They look German not English though” how about YOU show me a German who looks like Paul Walker

Just look about this site, all decent looking men with blond hair are predominately English yet Germans in denial still say they “look more German” even though they know its not true, Chris Hemsworth is another example of this. It’s not a coincidence that theyre all English, just accept it. England is more North and has more blue eyes than Germany

ian December 21, 2013 at 4:00 pm

Have you learned the definition of Germanic yet?

RAD December 18, 2013 at 1:38 pm

LOL @ Germans always acting as if they are the most “Pure” Germanics you are located in Western Europe. You had everything from Slavic, Celtic, to some Med influence. Stop acting like Northern Germans next to the Danish border represent the entire country because they do not.

Anyway Paul Walker looks dominantly English, period. I don’t see anything German about him. He looks just like James Marsden & Ollie Edwards, both of English descent as well.

jay December 19, 2013 at 9:53 am

what about the bavarians, they’re located in southern germany and they are traditionally known for their blonde hair and blue eyes, take leonardo dicaprio for example. some people say ryan gosling looks bavarian, even though he is not… but there are some germans with his last name like lena gosling.

most of the english have brown hair and brown eyes, those two guys don’t look like the average englishman, dark hair and light eyes is probably more of an irish thing.

paul walker looks very germanic…

Very common actually and Americans aren’t English anyway. Even in England there are lot of Irish descent people like David Bowie, John Lennon, Morrissey, Paul McCartney etc. So Englishmen don’t have any problems admitting Irish ancestry. Americans even less so in fact a lot of Americans will admit to Irish ancestry over English.

RAD December 18, 2013 at 1:51 pm

Uhm yes they are. The dominant ancestry in America is English. In 1980 is was the largest ancestry after they added the American category the number split as many of the English Americans selected American. How do we know this? at the same time the English number split by by millions the American number jumped up by millions as well. The majority of the so called “German Americans”also have dominant English ancestry just like Paul Walker, just like Brad Pitt.

RAD December 18, 2013 at 2:04 pm

Adding to that I am so sick of this Anti-English crusade of people trying to extinquish the obviously large English influence in America. It seems people are so desperate to portray Americans as a bunch of Germans & Irish.

Alice December 21, 2013 at 3:21 am

I don’t think it is anti-English. Most Americans aren’t just one ethnicity. I agree with you and think that English ancestry is underestimated in the US but I think it is only because a lot of Americans will state their more obvious or recent ancestry not that they are anti-English. Irish ancestry does seem to be over reported (I’m Irish so I’m def not anti-Irish). I think one of the reasons for this is because people that have Scots-Irish ancestry report that as Irish. Also a lot of people haven’t really searched their family tree but just go on what is verbally handed down to them from their parents, grandparents. Most Americans anyway aren’t solely of English or Irish or German ancestry or whatever else they have. They are a mix.

Alice December 12, 2013 at 9:45 pm

What are “Germanic” features anyway. Doesn’t Paul Walker have German ancestry anyway.

Anyway there are plenty of people in Ireland and Britain with that colouring.

Do you even know what ‘Germanic’ means? It’s not the same as German, English is Germanic

Alice December 13, 2013 at 7:22 am

Germanic is self explanatory. It means of Germany, or relating to its people and culture or characteristics. Yes I know English is Germanic like Dutch and the Scandinavian languages.

What do you think “Germanic” means?

andrew December 13, 2013 at 5:36 pm

English is basically Germanic in grammar, the vocabulary is mainly of Latin origin (Latin, French or Italian).

Marc 2 December 13, 2013 at 9:19 pm

Moreover, there’s a Celtic substratum in English

Also there’s a striking difference in English by phonology in contrast with over all other Gemanic languages.

Everyone knows Germany is not part of Scandinavia. The Scandinavian languages are part of the Germanic group of languages though. They are part of the Northern Germanic group whereas English is a West Germanic language like Dutch and German.

Who said that Scandinavia is part of Germany?

british aren’t a race but an ethnicity like all of the rest of europeans.

And for let you know the most common hair color in uk is brown not blonde

he was a good man, he died on his way to a charity event.

Walker and Willey are Scottish surnames. In fact, there was another Paul Walker who is a Scottish football player well-known in the British Isles. Paul Walker’s paternal great grandparents were from England, but their ancestors had to be from Scotland.

follers December 2, 2013 at 10:13 pm

“Walker” and “Willey” can easily be English surnames.

really going to miss paul walker… 6ft 2 inches tall, blond hair, blue eyes, that’s not english, that’s german, and probably some irish. apparently he liked the outdoors and the ocean, stand up guy.

aaa December 6, 2013 at 10:16 am

ridiculous comment,he was much more than a guy with “6 ft inches tall,blond hair,blue eyes, english or african descent”,what’s the big deal about this?his body was charred. We going to miss him,because he was a really nice person,and he was gentle and humble, it’s a big loss.Maybe if another hollywood hunk, “tall, blond, blue-eyed” die ,many people will not feel sorry

notional December 6, 2013 at 1:29 pm

hes 7/8 English and only 1/8 German so what are you talking about? blond hair and blue eyes are more common in England than in Germany

Labtec December 6, 2013 at 4:12 pm

The English, on average, are just as blonde as the Germans, and the average height of both countries is 5ft 10in.

How can you try and claim he doesn’t look English?

Take a look at his family tree — his is mostly English.

RIP Paul Walker.

Yes, some albanian wrote that he was albanian there for a while, and now that he is dead it’s been deleted cause it was false and it will never return.

mickcollin September 25, 2012 at 8:08 am

Guys….the last post apparently was a while ago BUT the most accurate way to truely understand your heritage and national stereotypes is by DNA testing.

It is a revelation to understand the results because,if you assume the results are accurate,the data will explain whether you have DNA that matches most,ex. Irish people vs. those from Germany.

The physical traits and stereotypes are often accurate but at times they’re not.

Do yourself a favor and all guys have a Y chromosome and MTDNA test for your female/mom’s side. The females can learn their dad’s Y chromosome through a father,brother or grandfather and their mother’s genetic make-up from the MTDNA results.

These discussions may be fun BUT they can be far more informational and accurate by DNA testing. I used Genebase.

Sweden July 19, 2012 at 7:23 pm

He reminds me of Swedish footballer Olof Mellberg ;D

Anglo July 25, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Indeed, Olof could pass as his older brother.

Anyway Paul maybe more mixed than he lets on (most Americans don’t know their ancestries past 3 generations) he could even have some Norse ancestry.

Because let me tell you right now. Paul Walker seems to have a “Tronder” type phenotype. That phenotype is found is Sweden mostly and is EXTREMELY rare in England.

Paul Walker & Brad Pitt are often hailed as “Anglos” but in reality there phenotypes are extremely rare in Britain which is why you will not find many British people who look like either of them. You have a better chance of finding a Northern German or Scandinavian who looks like Paul before you’d find an Englishmen. Inland England has much more celtic input which could probably explain why the Brits are “swathier” than other Germanic countries.

nnnnn January 15, 2013 at 12:47 am

What are you speaking about? His phenotip is Extremely rare in England? Maybe, you lived among immigrants.
If some sweden socker looks like him, it doesn’t prove, that Walker isn’t british. Some people have very strange logic.
Like or not, Walker and Pitt as well Eastwood and Hemsworths and not mr. Bean are typical british people.
(even if they dissapear)

Alice January 17, 2013 at 6:07 am

All this weirdness about swarthy people being Celtic. What is Celtic anyway? That label has become meaningless because every man and his dog calls themselves Celtic now. The Celts were not swarthy as they came from Central Europe but there is a bit of dissension about who and what the Celts were which I’m not going to go into detail here.

People seem to believe in complete stereotypes. In Europe the further north you go the more blond and blue eyed a population is. Finland has quite a percentage of blond and blue eyed people but even there you will find dark haired and dark eyed people. The British Isles has more dark haired people than Scandinavia but blond hair is not unusual. The highest percentage of red hair is in the British Isles. You can get siblings with dark hair and eyes, blue eyes and blond and green eyes and red hair all in the one family. They are all the same nationality. A Norwegian with dark hair and brown eyes is just as Norwegian as a blue eyed blond.
Anyway Paul Walker is not Scandinavian. The majority of his ancestry is from the British Isles.

nnnnn January 17, 2013 at 11:54 pm

a british person mustn’t necessearely have blond
hair and blue eyes, but it’s really ridiculous, if
a british person doesn’t look like Cooper, some
people scream “he or she can’t be english, but
swedish”. BTW, neihther Walker, no Hemsworth
are really “blond”, they are light-brown.

Wow bro, you’re delusional. How about you visit Britain before you talk shit. 15+ percent of the population have naturally blonde hair. I was born with LIGHT blonde hair then it started getting gradually darker as I got older. It’t now brown.

I still have light blue eyes obviously (But that’s common here, literally 95% of white people have blue or green eyes here), and I’m 100% British. Anyway who gives a shit? Because brown hair > blonde hair on a man all women agree.

notional August 10, 2013 at 10:25 am

So Brad Pitt is Nordic looking now? Brad Pitt is extremely British looking, he’d be swarthy by Scandinavian standards.

I guess they did break up and they are just rumors on the Internet. Every site says that they got engaged and then married.

But I still wouldn’t trust IMDB. It says this:

“Paul William Walker IV (born September 12, 1973) is an American actor with Albanian heritage. He became well known in 1999 after his role in the hit film Varsity Blues.”

Clearly not a credible source. Paul Walker is not Albanian.

Difference between Irish and English is very little.

Why Swedish footballer could pass as Paul Walker? i’ll tell you.Cause Scandinavia was populated at neolith from west of Europe.

Kal March 10, 2011 at 11:53 pm

I am actualy quite curious about Paul, he must be one of the few Irish that decended from Vikings. From their brief time in Ireland.

Cause to be completely honest with you? Paul Walker does not look Celtic or Anglo Saxon at all, or even typical German for the matter, he looks Nordic, Scandinavian.

Plenty Swedish people look just like him but not a lot of Irish, English, or Germans look like Paul walker. Paul had to have some Viking blood at one point!

Igothedane March 11, 2011 at 4:46 pm

You maybe right, because English, Irish, Scottish people are ugly as shit! lmao honestly have you seen pictures of the average English, Irish, Scot person? not a pretty sight ahaha.

Marc March 31, 2011 at 6:21 am

Kal,have you ever seen any Vikings or Anglo-Saxons?))) ….i don’t think so!

Igothedane, the most beautiful women in the world has heritage from England,Ireland and Scotland,so wipe your eyes!

alecx October 2, 2011 at 2:11 pm

Irish people are most beautiful)))))

alecx October 2, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Igothedane u’re damn jealous hater.

Alice March 15, 2012 at 12:24 am

Well if you’re Dane (I’m presuming) your ancestors the Vikings didn’t think they were too bad as they took many Irish/Scot women to Iceland with them. Today most Icelandic mt-dna is traced back to Ireland. Although I think a lot o f the Vikings that came to Ireland and Scotland were actually Norwegian.

Brittany March 6, 2011 at 5:51 am

Paul is not English, He’s Irish & German American so no one needs to fix the mistake, i think you guys are confusing him with Tom Welling who is all 3 of those things.

Its pretty ridiculous to assume someone’s ethnicity just by the surname of their mothers, some of you clearly have trouble understand that lots of Americans change their surnames to make them sound more “American” espeacialy Greeks, Germans & Italians but its not unheard of for Irish, i assume that his mother is the German one since his father is Irish that could mean his mother simply had some weird long German name and changed it you cannot always go on the surname’s of people espeacialy when it comes to America. My friend is a full blooded Russian but he does not have a Russian name he has a Scottish one because his parents wanted him to fit in to American society more.

Brittany March 6, 2011 at 5:52 am

I’m sorry “Some one needs to fix the mistake” is what i meant.

Logan March 5, 2011 at 2:53 pm

Irish people are geneticaly distinct from Scots & English mainly due to the fact Ireland has not had as much immigration through the years and have remain distinct for hundreds & hundreds of years they’re almost like the Basque in a way. This can also explain why there is a higher concentration of light blue eyes and or red hair in Ireland. Blue eyes are a recessive trait and being that Ireland has not had many foreignors to come in as England did you get the picture. You can usualy tell someone is of Irish descent just by looking at them not only because of the crystal blue eyes but the fact they usualy have roundish faces (Olivia Wylde) and softer features than English & Scots one of the main reasons you can pinpoint an Irish person better than you could an English or Scot is because of that genetic distinction they have.

your are a fuckin racist. fuck you and your nordic shit.
suck on mexican and black dick bitch.

You are one to talk, Lopac! Ethnic didn’t block you from this site before for no reason!

Alice March 15, 2012 at 1:05 am

The Irish are not really distinct. They weren’t that isolated. They traded with Europe since ancient times. Genetic testing shows them to be the same as the other people who inhabit the British Isles. They were a bit more isolated than Britain but other people still did arrive. On autosomal testing they cluster with British and other North West Europeans. The most common Y chromosome is R1b which is common in West Europe. It was once assumed that they were blood kin to the Basque but more recent dna studies have found they are a different subclade of R1b than the Basque. Genetics is expanding at such a fast rate and is very interesting for anyone trying to trace their history.

Alice March 15, 2012 at 3:19 am

That blog is very interesting. Thanks for posting. I find these studies so fascinating.

Marc March 15, 2012 at 2:45 am

i think even modern archaeologists can’t really appreciate large scale of maritime contacts between prehistoric tribes along rivers and ocean shore of Northern Atlantic Zone.from Southern Spain to Scandinavia,which originated since Neolithic period and reach their peak at the beginning of Iron Age.Almost all of settlements,burial sites and megalithic structures placed near sea coast and rivers.Today,we’re greatly underestimate high mobility of prehistoric sea people.
Long distance marine travels could be the main reason and only explanation of spread modern haplogroups and possibly early Indo-European languages over large areas,within a short period of time.

Alice March 15, 2012 at 2:58 am

I agree with you there Marc. Alot of these people were more seafaring than people realised and not as isolated as people think.

Marc March 15, 2012 at 3:27 am

That’s very interesting problem,which is not decided yet.
For example,Norman travellers,some of them could be born in Denmark,and die in Turkey or Greenland!
Prehistoric sea people could travel great distances also,some jewelry dated about 1500 BC, from Ancient Egypt were find in Nort-Western Europe.

Tom March 5, 2011 at 7:49 am

I can’t believe you guys are fighting over a no talent, non acting pretty boy like Paul Walker, honestly there are literally tons of other better looking Irish-Americans that CAN actualy act that you could fight over and claim rather than this loser. I personaly would be ashamed to call him Irish-American. We have so much better, literaly tons, some of the best actors America has ever put out, we don’t need to claim this Z-lister lol.

Logan March 5, 2011 at 12:12 am

@ Janae

You are right about the blue eyed part, dunno about the blond part though, but its true, more English people have dark eyes than Irish people, most Irish people have light blue eyes, its apparent in most Irish American actos of either full or partial Irish heritage.

Megan Fox – Light blue eyes
Paul Walker – Light blue eyes
Patrick Dempsey – Light blue eyes
Cilian Murphey – Light blue eyes
Pierce Brosman – Light blue eyes
Matt Dallas – Light blue eyes
Olivia Wilde – Light blue eyes
Chris Evans – Light blue eyes
Mark McLachlan – Light blue eyes
John Travolta – Light blue eyes

There’s also this half Italian/Irish model who’s name i forgot who has those light blue eyes.

There are a few with dark eyes like Collin Farrel or Josh Hartnett but yeah, Blue eyes are more common in Irish people, I too (partialy Irish heritage) have light blue eyes. Its so common that i usualy just ask people who have light blue eyes “Are you Irish or half” and they go “Yes” lol

There are quite a few Irish Americans with green eyes too Chad Michael Murray & Lindsay Lohan come to mind.

Iris July 21, 2011 at 9:44 pm

chris evans is the one who is also italian looked it up like awhile ago i just remembered

Janae March 4, 2011 at 11:50 pm

Who cares what he is, he’s hot. He’s always looked Irish too me though, he looks almost like that model Scott Brown another Irishmen. The english look a little different from the Irish and scotts as England was invaded by Romans and they have a fair share of mediterranean DNA, Ireland was never invaded or conquered by the Romans.

I’m gonna believe his looks came from his Irish side, i never seen English THAT hot before, plus Ireland has far more blondes and blue eyed people than England due to the mediterranean influence a large majority of the people in England aren’t really 100% Nordic and they don’t look it.

asdf March 4, 2011 at 11:59 pm

England was also invaded by Germanic tribes like the Angles, Saxon, Jutes, and Vikings. There are Mediterranean looking people in both of them.

Love March 4, 2011 at 11:39 pm

I’m curious did the person who approved this submission actualy read the source link provided? because it says there right in the source he is Irish/German, it says zip about him being English.

asdf March 4, 2011 at 11:42 pm

His mother surname is Crabtree. It is of English origin.

Love March 4, 2011 at 11:44 pm

Point? and as someone else just pointed out several names are shared between the 3, they all came from celts.

Fact is all sources say he is Irish/German, nothing about English therefore all you have is wishful thinking.

Love March 4, 2011 at 11:46 pm

And for the record Crabtree is of Anglo-Saxon origin, last time i checked all Irish, Scots, English ARE decendents of Anglo Saxons so that point really isn’t a valid one.

asdf March 4, 2011 at 11:55 pm

Isn’t the English only the ones who are descendants of the Anglo Saxon. Scottish and Irish are descendants of the Native Briton. Most americans do not know all of their ancestry.
If you read the article in there. you will see that in the 80s people claiming English ancestry is around 50 mil. now it is only almost 28 million. That’s a big drop where did they just go.

Logan March 4, 2011 at 11:34 pm

@ Dave

Don’t be a moron, There are plenty surnames that are shared between the scottish, irish, and english. My surname is Dallas, it is BOTH Irish and Scottish, but im not Scottish at all, i am Irish & Italian.

As far as i know Paul Walker is Irish & German there is no evidence to suggest he is English. Also btw Walker IS an Irish surname as well.

Love March 4, 2011 at 11:32 pm

Paul walker has no English heritage at all, He is Irish & German. Most caucasian Americans are, Irish & Germans outnumber all caucasian ethnicities in the states.

Smash March 11, 2011 at 8:30 am

The numbers are wrong, most of White American ethnic groups are English, German and Scottish/Scots-Irish.

He might be of English heritage

Love March 11, 2011 at 4:36 pm

No the numbers aren’t wrong, the number of English have deplenish through the years almost every American celeb has Irish & German heritage they are usualy the most common heritages amoung many, here where i live there are more German & Irish americans than anything.

Deal with it.

Love March 11, 2011 at 4:42 pm

Furthermore you fail to comprehend that the Irish have been coming to the states since DAY ONE and still are, the English have stopped long ago thats why there are more, i do my research so i know full well.

Irish people often marry Italians & Germans in American, but either way, 9 times out of 10 when you meet and American Caucasian they will tell you they’re full or partial Irish or German heritage i HARDLY even hear English anymore, they’re dying out. Germans & Irish have surpassed them and soon Italians look like they will too, Italians still come here, and everywhere 1-3 years i look at the numbers Italians have increased by a million. within a few years they will perhaps reach 20 million. By then English will deplenish even more since there are not many English still coming to the country and since English people rarely marry other English people.

I gurantee there aren’t even as many English as claimed in the numbers why? because i myself in my entire life in America have NEVER seen someone say they’re full English, there is not a single English left in America who is full and if they are, they’re few, any English you meet will more than likely be German, Irish, Scottish and some other shit. So if the Irish numbers are wrong? So are the English because NO WAY in hell are their that many English of full heritage.

Smash March 12, 2011 at 1:02 pm

You should check this link and repeat after me there are very few Americans of English ancestry:

People say they are Irish or German ancestry because they were a great waves of immigrants in the 19th century. English are there since the 16th century and they haven’t disappeared. It’s like if you said that there’s no Native Americans because they were here before Europeans.

I agree, Irish people are present since the birth of the United States but they represented only 4% of the U.S. population in 1790 while English accounted for 60%.

Even after Independence Day, English immigration didn’t stop it, it’s even increased

It’s not because in your neighborhood there are plenty of people of Irish and German origin that the whole country is like that.

Like other ethnic groups English have mixed with German, French, Irish, Dutch, Scottish, Italian, …

Some African American and Native American have also Englsih/Scottish bloods unknowingly.

I don’t know why but some people are ashamed to have English ancestry or think it’s so commonplace and boring that they don’t even say it. That’s why you almost never hear of people who say they are English American.

Many people have 1 / 4 of English blood and 3 / 4 of Irish blood and they consider themselves Irish-American and not English American even though they are.

Some people think that having an Irish or an Italian ancestry is more interesting that having a British ancestry

I don’t say Paul Walker is full English but he has English ancestry among others: German, Irish

And the English are not ugly, you should stop those old stereotypes, Italians are beautiful, French eat only bread …

Beauty is not a feature of the region where you come from.

For you the list of american actors with english ancestry:

Dave August 25, 2010 at 1:40 pm

Walker is an Old English surname how the hell is it Irish the only way it can be Irish is if an English colonist moved to Ireland which hundred of thousands have over a period of 800 years.

Josh August 22, 2010 at 12:28 pm

Yet another Irish American. :)

rafa June 12, 2010 at 4:18 pm

walker is english surname so he is english

Logan March 5, 2011 at 1:07 am

My two cents.

You’d be surprised how many Americans know what they are. There is a reason the number of English have decreased. Mixing is one of the main reasons ofcourse. Most English-Americans aren’t full English they’re usualy English, Irish, Scottish among some other things. So after years and years of mixing people grow further apart from their little english heritage and start claiming what they are the most. Take Christina Ricci for example, she had an Italian relative long ago (reason for her italian surname) but her family basicaly married Irish people over and over and over so now she’s far more Irish than she is Italian.

Another factor is ever since this country was started Irish have flooded the country and continue to do so today. Thats why we now have so many Irish they’ve been coming here since day one, they’ve had a very important role in the shaping of the country and the majority of the presidents including Obama all have Irish ties.

Irish kept on coming, where as English, Italians, Scots stopped. England is far more “developed” than Ireland there isn’t as big of a reason to come to America anymore as much as it is for Ireland. England has a decent music industry, England has a decent game industry, England has a decent Film industry. Ireland doesn’t, Irish come here for oppurtunity.

Most Italians here came from Southern Italy and they came because the South was in poor shape, its not as bad today so they have no reason to leave. Thus we still have about 17/18 mill italians.

From my experience the most common mix with Irish is Italian don’t ask me why but when Irish mix with others it seems to be Italians usualy (seriously just look on any Italian-American actor list, Italians mixed with Irish are probably one of the most common mixes in America), i believe its not only because of the Catholic likeness but also because Irish & Italians pretty much went through the same discrimination when they first arrived here.

Plus there was the whole Irish/Italian mob thing.

Tom March 5, 2011 at 8:09 am

There are less English-Americans nowdays because…well not to be cruel but English people aren’t really shall i say “Model” material, not easy on the eyes at all atleast most ive met hahaha.
