    Im Australian and from the same state.

    My state is is kinda like the Midwest, the more attack Brunette guys look similar to him and we often have alot of Blondes.

    There is huge number of Anglo-Celtics but also German, Scandinavian, Polish in our state. For the white people.

    Some saying his aboriginal. No, I’m am Tanned like him in Australia and I’m mostly Welsh and Half Scandinavia with a little baltic.
    I’m not saying I look like him. But I’m not too far apart either.

    Alot of people forget the celts can be fair skinned or olive. Cause they also have some pre indo European genetics, like Basque.

    Like Orlando bloom, Catherine Zeta Jones, Tom Daley, Kit Harrington all these people ethnically British. Its not that uncommon to be fair and British or to Also be Tanned and like French.

    Given that in Australia evenwhen German tourrist come they get very Tanned.

    When I lived in Northern Europe I got pale in winter like I’d never seen in Australia.

    In Australia we don’t lose much sun light In winter. Especially in Queensland and we have harsh UV radiation.

    We tend age Quicker than if we were in our native Europe. Comparing a European of the same age as Australian and we will often look older.

    But yes long story short I think is white and just possibly like most Queenslanders. A mix of Anglo/Celtic and some German or other continental European. Most likely from North or North West European.

    damn some dangerous levals of sunburn for a white man, skin cancer rates in Australia must be huge, that is really not the ideal place for northern europeans to live

    My guess is that he is half Venezuelan (IDK, talk to Fiona), and that possible Venezuelan side could have some Spaniard, or Italian, or both.
    Aside from that there’s definitely something NOT Mediterranean in him, something more Baltic.
    I’d be highly surprised if he turns out to be 100% English, although apparently in England 50% of the genes come from Spain if I recall correctly. I still think he has something else (Venezuelan/Italian).
