    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).

            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

          • follers says:

            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.

          • andrew says:

            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.

            @ follers

            about “dark Wasps” topic, if we reduce it just to British Isles, we have to consider that people who attend drama/arts school usually not hail from working classes but from middle or upper ones, hence there are likely more chances to find people who displays a certain look, I mean tall height often combined with dark hair and light eyes who less find among poor strata of society (usually shorter with reddish complexion).

  4. Capricious says:

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