    He has mulatto ancestors (1/64) according to this family tree, from Cuba/DR: https://www.familysearch.org/tree/pedigree/landscape/LBXT-31X

    Check Edward Louis Fleury

    Also according to this other genealogy, his Fauria line is the same of African-American/Black actress Shailene Woodley: https://www.familysearch.org/tree/pedigree/landscape/9ZXH-7CW

    It may be wrong though.
