Oh, wow, this is another dark WASP. When I clicked on his profile, I expected his ethnicity to say something else.

I just watched him in The Entire History of You, where he beat up Tom Cullen, who shares a similar background and is also a dark WASP.

Dark WASPs are as overrepresented in Hollywood as they are on this site. Hollywood likes casting them and I like adding them.

Dark WASPs are usually good-looking (of both genders).

ashash January 4, 2018 at 9:17 am

I agree that it’s always interesting when they are added. :)

Excuse me Follers, I have a question for you: what females examples of “dark Wasps” are you talking about?

Thank you

Catherine Zeta-Jones, Ashley Greene, Katherine Heigl, Audrey Hepburn, Alicia Vikander, Anne Hathaway, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Keira Knightley, Cindy Crawford, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Kris Jenner, Katie Holmes, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts, etc.

They’re not as common as the dark WASP men in Hollywood, but there are a lot.

I use “WASP” just to mean of Northwestern European ancestry. “Dark” just means brown eyes.

thank you very much

I was actually thinking to the likes of Sandra Bullock or Demi Moore.

I struggle to remember who is Ashley Green and I don’t understand what is Jenners’ occupation, they’re nobodies to me and not even part of Hollywood industry.

Love the UK

Looks too ethnic to be just English. Even Colin Farrell doesn’t look like that.

xoxo November 19, 2015 at 2:06 pm

Yeah, he looks mixed with black.

athelya November 19, 2015 at 2:47 pm

he looks more english than Colin Farrell

gel April 30, 2016 at 4:28 am

Here is an Irish woman Genevieve O’Reilly, so you might get an idea of what the Irish look like. (Also played Princess Diana).

Some whites look ethnic

Wikipedia states his dad is a Pakistani engineer

follers June 16, 2015 at 4:38 pm

I took it off Wikipedia. Thanks.

andrew June 17, 2015 at 6:07 am

if you can edit Wikipedia there is A LOT of work to do, any profile is basically wrong about ethnicity like

Scott Glenn: “has Irish and Native American ancestry”
Willie Nelson: “Nelson’s ancestry includes English, Irish, and Cherokee”

and MANY others

It’s harder to take some things out when there’s a reliable source attached.

He looks a bit… SSA influenced?

WTF November 7, 2014 at 7:15 pm

He DOES look a bit black. He could pass as a Puerto Rican with black ancestry.

WTF November 7, 2014 at 7:23 pm

Actually I was googling more pictures of him and looks Middle Eastern too… He has a strange and ambiguous look so he could pass as multiple ethnicities. I’m sure he is mixed with something else!! He does look fully white!!

WTF November 7, 2014 at 7:25 pm

Wtf I meant he does NOT look fully white. Please add a fucking edit option goddamn!!!! This is getting ridiculous and stupid!!!

J.J. November 5, 2013 at 5:55 pm

correction; his eyes are forest green (green+brown) and his hair is dark brown (brunet)
