This is her father David Tonkin:

Phoebe could be related to a political Tonkin family in Australia. But I am
not sure how common the surname Tonkin is. On Facebook, there are many, many people with the last name Tonkin in Australia.

Her mother is Jane Tonkin from Mosman, New South Wales, Australia. Her sister is Abby Tonkin.

I think Phoebe is part Indian, Maori, or Jewish. She is way too beautiful and exotic to be white.

There must be some Slavic in there.

If she had Slavic in her she would look lighter than your average British, not darker. I think she has some Indian ancestry though.

what are you on about?Bulgarians for example are Slavic and they are much darker than your typical Brit.

Her other would be something exotic – Sephardic Jewish, Armenian or something.

She has an interesting eye shape.

lelo4 July 21, 2016 at 10:51 am

Askhenazy Jewish too since they are basically the same as Sephardic.

by what standards? she looks fine

fuzzybear44 December 31, 2015 at 1:58 am


By my standards I guess, I’m the one who said it. To you she looks fine, and that’s ok. Some people like that bony look, I just don’t happen to be one of them. It’s just my opinion, not asking you to like it.Facially she looks good.

Looks like she’s partially Asian in this picture, but after taking a gander at other pictures of her she looks more like a Croatian girl.

athelya November 18, 2015 at 8:22 am

almond eyes and round face doesn’t automatically mean asian -.-

she looks east european

Surreal August 10, 2015 at 3:04 pm

I thought maybe she was part Maori or something. Because I originally saw her on H20, and she was much swarthier than all the other girls on the show. In fact, she was one of the darkest people that were ever on the show, from what I can remember. I don’t think they showed in black people or Aboriginals but I never finished watching the show, only saw a season or two, but yeah. I wouldn’t be surprised if she did have some non-white ancestry. I know a couple of other actors from Australia and the Netherlands who look like swarthy Caucasian people but turn out to have Maori ancestry like Manu Bennett (from Spartacus and Xena) and Keisha Castle-Hughes (The Nativity Story; Game of Thrones), + others.

Manu Bennett:

Keisha Castle-Hughes:

And others like:

Jodi Gordon:

Megan Gale:

Pania Rose:

Simone Kussell:

they are all Kiwis, right? She’s from Sidney so she could be part Italian, Greek, Croatian etc.. or just British/Irish like Rose Byrne

andrew August 10, 2015 at 2:29 pm

have you ever seen an Aborigine?

Masterlord July 24, 2015 at 6:51 am

Am i the only thinking she could pass as a relative of Mila Kunis? Like a distant cousin (or whatever?)

Bow Down Bitches July 25, 2015 at 10:32 pm
