    So possibly Scandinavian? Most Neilsen people I found in Queensland had Danish roots.

    From this.

    His father John belongs to the Basque ethnic background. On the other hand, John’s wife Melissa belongs to an English-Australian background. Read more at: https://htowndaily.com/jacob-elordis-parents-john-elordi-and-melissa-elordi-full-bio/

    He was by far the best actor in Euphoria, i think he can deliver a great job when given the right material, and considering his hight and facial features i think is highly unlikely that he is just spanish, must have some brittish or german thing going on too. And since he is australian, i would not be suprised if he also has some balkan or eastern european ancestry.

      There are no “Spanish” features in general, people from only small nations can have specific features upto some extent, like Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Denmark, Norway, Estonia, etc….
      Spaniards, as I have seen, come with various sets of features.

        Out of all the countries you mentioned, only Estonia is really “small”, and i meant spaniard, the native population of Spain, of course “spanish” is just the nationality and pretty much anyone can have. Spaniard can have some different features, especially those in northern Spain, who are generally lighter than the southern spaniard, but the overall apperience is really not very different, it’s something between Antonio Bandeiras and Iniesta most of the times, wich is perfectly inside the variety range of an ethnicity. It’s not like the “english”, that has as much people like Paul Bettany and Simon Bird inside it and somehow they are all the same “ethnicity” lol…
