      It means he has aztec & arabs genes. I believe it. He HAS played mexican & arab roles convincingly throughout his career… Also why would a Spanish Tv program not give their most international actor an accurate test?

    You are crazy? Examples of names originating from the Latin language used by White Europeans of noble lineage: the German gallery owner Gisela Capitain, the Dutchman João Mauricio de Nassau and the Dutchman Guilherme de Orange. Gisela, João Mauricio and Guilherme, these are names used by extremely white people and Noble Europeans! They can not be black or indigenous mestizos, idiot! Are you stupid?
