    He looks like a cross btw Ezra Miller and Corey Feldman! A lot of girls faun over him but personally I don’t find him a attractive. Shiloh Fernandez is the better looking version of him.

      He looks more like a Eurasian than Napoleon. However the pseudo-Asian looks pop up in Europeans occasionally and it’s mostly due to some Ancient North Eurasian heritage.
