    The Davidtz name sure does suggest that she may be Jewish. But she claims Dutch, English and French, about her eyes, well, Famke Janseen is 100% Dutch, but she has dark eyes & dark hair, she’s also drop dead gorgeous. Lots of English people have those features, like Cheryl Cole or whatever her new last name is, Victoria Beckham, Gemma Arteton etc. Majority of French people have dark eyes and hair
