Looks like a typical full Irishman to me.

he has the facial features of his dad (expecially the nose) with a darker complexion.

andrew October 7, 2015 at 6:41 am

he’s sometimes descibed as having Dutch ancestry.

follers October 7, 2015 at 2:02 pm

It happens.

andrew October 7, 2015 at 2:19 pm

not often

Gross looking man.

M July 23, 2015 at 9:09 pm

Nigga ain’t white, he might wish he was but it’s obvious he’s part Native American and black.

cwm85 July 23, 2015 at 9:20 pm

He’s white. And why do you have to call him the n word? There are some ignorant people on this site. Are there any moderators here?

M July 23, 2015 at 9:27 pm

The mods don’t give a fuck! They don’t even pay attention to the comments here!

DAngelo November 7, 2014 at 4:54 am

look like Kit Harington to me…

Looks like a Mexican/Filipino dude to me.

noneofyourbusiness February 3, 2015 at 6:22 am

He does look like a typical Mestizo Mexican. There is no way he’s fully white, his mom is lying to him.

follers February 3, 2015 at 6:45 am

He looks exactly like what he is, i.e. the son of, let’s say, a Christopher Reeve-type WASP man and a Marisa Tomei-type Italian woman.

He could even pass for full WASP, like a Brandon Routh or Rupert Everett type.

H.Schlickmann February 16, 2015 at 1:36 am

Why is his mother lying to him just because she’s Italian? She has recent European immigration roots, if someone is Mestizo or a White person with Native American blood admixture, that one is his father whose WASP ancestors are in the USA since the 1600s.
Follers is correct, he could pass for a Rupert Everett English type. There are people in Western and Eastern Europe countries who are fully European and have dark features like him, and also Ashkenazi Jews who are that dark. He doesn’t look necessarily Mestizo.
And Hispanic means someone whose mothertongue is Spanish or someone whose ancestors were Spaniards. It’s not a synonymous of Mestizo or miscigenated individual with Spanish and Indigenous background. At least not exclusively. Today it’s also applied to the descendants of the Hispanic immigrants who can no longer speak Spanish but even if they are Mestizos with a high genetic percentage of Native they still have some Spanish in them, although there are Hispanics in Mexico and Central America who have full Native ancestry just like the full-blood Native Americans in the US who are anglophone.
Italy was occupied by different wave of groups, various peoples.
And many Italians in Northern Italy are blond or red, and Central Italians have fair skin just like most Southern Italians. There’s a huge misconception about Italians in the USA.
The British Islands are not Scandinavia. There’s no genetic difference among Irish and British, they are mostly R1B1, which means Western European. Those who during the Ice Age took refuge in the French-Cantabrian fringe and later recolonized Western Europe from Spain after the glaciers thawed.
What about all those British women who look like Mr Bean and all those British men who look like Camila Parker Bowles? Hahaha!!! They are not hot Swedish to me.
And yes, I think Steven Strait is attractive, not just the body LOL!

Um, just because he has small eyes doesn’t mean he is Mestizo.

There are Italians in Italy who look that way. Now do they somehow have Native American blood? Seriously…

M July 23, 2015 at 9:11 pm

Majority of Italians are mixed with black. It’s so ironic considering they’re one of the biggest racist countries in Europe…

WTF August 25, 2014 at 5:23 am

Ugly as hell.

ihatemostpeople May 20, 2014 at 4:32 am

He looks Hispanic.

Check7t August 14, 2014 at 8:36 pm

No, no no, his taxonomy looks Atlanto-Med:

Care to point out Native American mestizo features?

Typical Mexicans:

Only way he could pass as one is a White one, rest look Native American influenced.

Jessrodriguez10 September 9, 2014 at 9:57 pm

Actually. You’re wrong..about the “typical Mexicans” those are mixed Mexicans. I’m mexican and I’m white with green doesn’t really matter and Mexicans aren’t the only hispanics.

marjanel November 7, 2014 at 10:38 pm

There is not something like looking hispanic, and if something like that exists it would not be indegenous features. It is interesting that in Latin America hispanic is a white word it is about Spain and Spanish. Indegenous are not hispanics, they are pre-hispanics cultures. Sorry saying that there is something like looking Hispanic,it is like saying that Natives from USA look Anglophone.

H.Schlickmann February 16, 2015 at 1:53 am

Yes, he looks Atlanto-Med, a dark Western European. He doesn’t look like Taylor Lautner who’s obviously Mestizo or mostly European (English, Austrian and French) with Native American admixture.

celebfan March 28, 2014 at 6:55 pm

Does anyone know what his parents’ names are? Appearently his mother has Italian and possibly Jewish ancestry.

neves September 6, 2013 at 2:00 pm

this guy looks jewish as fuck

andrew September 6, 2013 at 5:26 pm

there isnt just one Jewish look, think about Simon & Garfunkel, both Jewish and completely different the one from the other

follers September 6, 2013 at 5:27 pm

Steven looks like a mix of them.


neves September 13, 2013 at 8:50 pm

never said there was just one jewish look and i dont know why you think i did.

ethnic April 8, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Are you sure thats his dad?

therealist September 29, 2011 at 3:32 pm

he looks native american or latin
heheheh xD

theropod October 12, 2013 at 12:50 am

So sick of you Americans claiming someone with dark features as native American.

The dude looks very Italian. Handsome at it too.

Myspace Celebrity November 29, 2010 at 9:23 pm

Ah, I remember when people swore up and down that he was “destined” to play Jacob Black, but since he isn’t Native American I bet lots of peple were disappointed or something like that.
