    I’m laughing at the possible Japanese or Chinese ancestry ( I mean, he looks it, but its not likely). But I think some Scandinavian blood could be attributed to some of his features.

    If someone says he looks Asian but he has no ancestry from there it is quite correct to let people know. Many people have strange ideas about what a population should look like by their standards. I’ve been guilty of this in the past myself.

    Nothing wrong with discussion but it has to be backed up as well. It is the same sort of thing that occurs with Robert Sheehan and others who have stated their ancestry but people insist they are not telling the truth. Exotic now is all the rage so people aren’t trying to hide any interesting background. You can only state the ancestry you are aware of and if most people can go back to their Great Grandparents then they didn’t get their looks from some distant ancestry. Jimmy Page has ancestry from Britain and Ireland going back a few hundred years so it is obvious his look is from there.
