Ryan Guzman is an American actor, model, and mixed martial artist. He is the son of Lisa and Ramon Guzman.

Ryan has said:

I’m Mexican-American. My dad was actually born in Mexico. He was raised up there, and he came back and forth to America pretty much his whole teenage years. My mom is from Sacramento, Calif., and she’s a blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl. She’s a whitey. [Laughs]… I was born in Texas, but at a young age, I moved to Sacramento, Calif. I moved out to L.A. almost two years ago.

Ryan’s maternal grandfather was Duane Richard Hudson (the son of Ernest Henry/Hall Hudson and Irma Bowers). Duane was born in Arkansas, to a Colorado-born father and an Arkansas-born mother. Ernest was the son of Arthur Henry Hudson and Alka Blanche/Blanch Holmgrain; Alka’s parents, Peter Johanas Holmgrain and Hannah Johnson, were Swedish. Ryan’s great-grandmother Irma was the daughter of Robin Henry Bowers and Blanche Irene Jordan.

Ryan’s maternal grandmother is Sharon Lynne Antrim (the daughter of Edward Leon Antrim and Gyneth Faye Robinson). Sharon was born in California, to Nebraska-born parents. Edward was the son of James Leon Antrim and Leah Selina Beckley. Gyneth was the daughter of William E. Robinson and Fleta M. Jennewein.

judging from that pic hes medium/coffee complected so definitely not anglo looking, not straight off the reservation either tho

Man from Leblon October 29, 2015 at 7:29 pm


You are completely correct. Specially in Southern Spain or Central Spain he would be just like anyone else.

People have the most stupid misconceptions.

Bow Down Bitches July 26, 2015 at 8:36 pm

don’t know who the hell he is, but he’s handsome

California July 12, 2015 at 8:22 am

He looks Puerto Rican, I can see some Black features on him. Most PRs have Black DNA.

M June 4, 2015 at 5:10 pm

He is not white, maybe he’s predominately white, but he would still face racism if he went to Spain.

andrew June 5, 2015 at 3:13 am

don’t make me laugh

Spaniard_70 June 14, 2015 at 2:52 pm

No he wouldnt. He is obviously a Mexican with A lot of Spanish blood. He most likely has at most 20 percent Native.

neiltennant July 2, 2015 at 1:55 am


i was in spain in different areas and with his look he is more white than 90 percent of the spanish people
and please don’t start those discussions that most spains are blonde and blue eyed

thats completely wrong

Gurrl August 4, 2015 at 11:27 am

On second thought he can pass as Kit Harington’s brother. Most Mexicans possess a certain degree of Amerindian ancestry though even if they look/are predominately white. He maybe got his looks from his mother.

sebastianvalladolid December 7, 2015 at 2:25 pm

He is more white than most Spanish people ? Lmao you got to be a troll, ummm where in Spain did you go? Andalusia ? Like I agree that most Spaniards are not blonde but most Spaniards are definitely whiter than Ryan lmfao, I mean his one side is Mexican clearly there’s native somewhere in that side. Interested to hear where in Spain you visited though . You’re silly.

alberto.r7 April 6, 2015 at 9:06 am

He looks mainly white. In his mexican side, probably he could have some native american but it isnt sure. If I have to bet, I would say that he is 7/8 white.

theropod April 1, 2015 at 12:12 am

He is gorgeous. And he looks full European to me (Spaniard). Just because someone is “exotic” doesn’t mean they are “mixed” (Native or Aboriginal).

My ideal guy for sure.

someone from the internet September 7, 2014 at 2:55 pm

I can clearly see the Native American in him.

jokin March 2, 2015 at 9:54 am

where the hell?? Native american?? he is completely european looking. His mexican side is not specified here, SO he surely has european-spanish background in his mexican side too.

Girll April 14, 2015 at 1:02 am

If his father was a white Mexican wouldn’t it be specified as “Spanish-Mexican” or something?
The majority of Mexicans have a degree of mixture.

follers April 14, 2015 at 8:26 am

“Spanish-Mexican” isn’t based on genealogical information, just a guess. If there’s a genealogy available it’s noted.

Uniscorn August 9, 2014 at 4:14 am

So all those Spanish folks didn’t get laid in Mexico I guess?

Crazy racist.

Gurrl August 3, 2014 at 9:14 pm

he is castizo, thats why he looks white-because he mostly is.

andrew August 10, 2014 at 4:16 pm

Native features are not visibile, he looks completely European

Gurrl August 16, 2014 at 12:25 am

If his dad was white he would be known as Spanish-Mexican etc while Mexican is a mestizo by default unless otherwise specified.

someone from the internet September 7, 2014 at 2:56 pm

He does not look fully white. Are you blind and stupid? He has Native American features.

ShawntheGod August 3, 2014 at 12:02 pm

Doesn’t look Mexican, looks white.

I lived in California for a decent amount of time in my life and never saw any Mexicans who look like him, pretty much all Mexicans look Native American influenced significantly, he looks fully Caucasian.

Could pass as German…

marjanel August 10, 2014 at 1:05 pm

Mexican is not a race.There are a lot of mexicans that look like him or whiter

user34 May 6, 2014 at 1:55 pm

He looks mexican, just castizo, based on his facial features. There are a lot of mexicans who are already castizo like thalia,etc.

Check7t April 17, 2014 at 8:37 am

Looks like a Spaniard. I wonder if his dad was a Spaniard.

Marseille April 24, 2014 at 5:52 am

Yes, he looks Southern French/Iberian, I’m Southern French and darker than him though.

Rekta April 8, 2015 at 4:40 am

No, he looks like a Southern Italian (Neapolitan), not an ethnic French.

ihatemostpeople April 13, 2014 at 4:42 am

I see the Mexican in him. He is kind of cute.
