Place of Birth: Omaha, Nebraska, U.S.
Date of Birth: April 28, 1973

Jorge Garcia is an American actor and comedian. He is known for his role on the series Lost.
Jorge is the son of Dora Mesa, a professor who was born in Cuba, and Humberto García, a doctor who was born in Chile. He was raised in San Juan Capistrano, Orange County, California. He is married to Rebecca Birdsall.
He looks Irish, never even suspected for a minute he was of Latino origin.
He doesn’t even look Spanish to me.
You gotta be kidding. Or are you thinking of Robbie Coltrane?
some Irish people and some North Western Iberians are VERY similar
the only similarities they have is Celtic ancestry from years and years ago. Two completely different cultures and languages
that’s literally not true though, northwestern Iberian culture (Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria, Basque country) even northern Castillian culture resembles Irish culture much more than probably any other culture, Gaelic languages are not spoken at all to this day but they obviously were, which is irrelevant anyways
Also it’s almost like I said SOME northwestern Iberians and SOME Irishmen look very alike, there definitely is a phenotypical overlap between these regions, Atlanto Med types are largely found in both of them
The Gaelic/Celtic/Basque ancestry from years and years come from Galicia, region of Spain and even Basque region (where the northwest Iberian part comes in) is the really the only part that might share some similarities due to the ancestry years and years ago which is where the phenotype overlaps (I agree on that one I guess).
Later the Phoenicians, Italians, Greeks, North African (mostly southern Spain) and Germanic Goths came into the Spain and added more DNA to the Spanish population. The Irish has more DNA from the Vikings, Norman, and English (Germanic peoples). Modern Irish people today on DNA results don’t normally score the same results that modern Spanish do. They would share more ancestry with the UK than they would with the Iberians/Spanish
As for language wise, Gaelic did have a bit of influence on the Irish language that they wouldn’t really speak today. 99% of Ireland speaks English today. You can’t go up to someone in Spain or Portugal and speak Irish, they’d be so confused lol. As for cuisines, it’s different.
At the end of the day, they both are European and have their differences and similarities all over Europe.
They’re still completely different today
Dude, I have absolutely no idea what this whole rant of yours is even about or what its purpose is, you’re literally telling me history I already know, you’re literally answering to my comment as if I had said the the Irish and northwestern Iberians are the same, for the love of God learn to read PLEASE, I said that there is SOME PHENOTYPICAL OVERLAP, I NEVER said they’re the same, nor did I say their cultures are the same, I said northwestern Iberian culture is probably THE CLOSEST to Irish culture as it still hold quite tight to its Celtic roots, I live in Iberia, I know about this
You’re literally just rambling for the sake of it, it’s actually the most pointless interaction I’ve had in this website and all because you seem to reinterpret my words
“You can’t go up to someone in Spain or Portugal and speak Irish” ????????????????????
I literally said virtually NOBODY (except for scholars who study it) speaks Gaelic languages in Iberia
NOTHING you just said changes the fact that there is (to whatever extent, as minimal as it might be) an overlap, and you most definitely can find people in Iberia but most predominantly in northwestern Iberia who would pass without a doubt in Ireland, as well as people in Ireland who would pass in northwestern Iberia without a doubt, end of my case, this rant is pointless
No. You said they’re very similar at first, I just said they are not really, only from years and years ago then you started ranting and saying how they both are ‘very’ similar when the information you said was only accurate years and years ago. I just was saying their cultures and languages are both different, no ranting or arguing.
“SOME Irish people and SOME North Western Iberians are VERY similar”
Again, your inhability to read and comprehend isn’t my problem, but yours.
>” then you started ranting”
lmao I’ve never seen such projection on display in here, yeah man, I’m totally rambling, is not like you refuse to understand that nobody is saying these 2 peoples/cultures are THE SAME but rather that simply there’s an overlap
Anyways, I think both mine and Jona’s comments are pretty sufficient, if you refuse to understand what we’re saying at this point you’re just trolling
Yes, there is some Celtic heritage in NW Spain/Portugal, you see in the toponymy/names (Galicia, Celta Vigo etc..), they play bagpipes and stuff.
Anyhow as a whole the populations from NW Iberia and Celtic areas of British Isles overlap at very little rate, IMO those from Basque Country have sometimes more physical affinity.
Lol keep crying about nothing cuz it ain’t that serious, you’re just arguing with a wall at this point bc they all still European
so feel free to stay mad over nothing haha
There’s really many similarities between northern iberians and irish people for sure, and also there are many scots and welsh people that resemble perfectly iberian folks, especially northern portuguese. Scots like David Byrne, Alan Cumming, and welsh people like Tom Cullen and Catherine Zeta-Jones are no aliens to people who live in Léon-Spain or Braga-Portugual, for example, the same way i can picture people like Paulo Rocha, Felipe Neto, Fernanda Vasconcelos, and Ana de Armas on the british isles. The culture, the music, the ancient lenguage and even the food of northern Potugual and Spain are a bit similar to whats in Ireland, Scotland, and to a smaller extent, Wales. They are all Celtic nations after all, they have a similar indo-european heritage.
This still proves my point they are similar from years and years ago, I’m sorry you guys too delusional to realize stuff changes over time.
You lost me at “Latino origin” lol my guess is that you are from the U.S but who knows some europeans and even canadians say —- like that sometimes…
Wow i didn’t know he was from Omaha
