He looks Med, but that’s not odd at all for people of British Isles extraction (Orlando Bloom, Russell Brand, Colin Farrell, Cheryl Cole, Catherine Zeta Jones, Dominic Cooper, etc) you get the point.

i find it funny how you’re so defensive about english people with extremely dark features being “med stock” and usually when it’s about dark features it’s not hazel light brown eyes and brown hair like lily allen, it’s very dark brown eyes and dark brown hair which is according to you not uncommon in the british isles. English blood is predominately germanic and celtic and dark traits are not native to either of those people, those who chose to debate celtics had dark features are mistaken as if they did then majority of the british isles would have dark features not light features, fair enough you will get brits with dark hair and/or brown eyes but when germanic or celtic people have very dark brown eyes like this chap it does raise questions of their complete ancestry, you can’t keep using the excuse of the “med phenotype” because guess what? Mediterraneans can have light hair, light eyes and fair skin, look at this woman who’s predominately Italian with slight english blood

so how can this bloke be undebatably 100% english with the excuse of being “med type” when that woman is predominately med with slight british and has light eyes and fair skin, not to mention she looks completely different to this bloke. Sometimes you have except that people have unknown/hidden ancestry which are obvious in their looks but are never found out

Orlando Bloom, Russell Brand, Colin Farrell, Cheryl Cole, Catherine Zeta Jones

ARE not the average british people

the ethnic background of all the people you mention is highly doubted and discussed

i ve been in england several times since the late 1980s

and i have never met any full english person with that look

i have met half pakistani or full pakistani or 1/4 blacks +whites who looked like this guy

plus it is a good choice that he plays Jewish guy because he looks Sephardi Jewish from Iran

typepope May 29, 2018 at 5:52 am

Iranian Jews are Mizrahi Jews, not Sephardi.
Many people in the British Isles have his look.
He’s a nerdy and unshaven white guy, and you’re a sub-moron.
