    She does not look like the typical “dougla” part Indians (grandma or mom,dad) in the Carribean to me it looks if she is any Indian that Indian was ALOT further back than a full Indian grandmother, like 100 years ago. Looks basically just black majority or just African to me. Not saying she is lying but I would never see it if she did not mention it. And anyone can get a weave.
    I have not heard of too many black actresses who dont say they are mixed, with any little thing. I guess people just cant be black.
    The typical dougla look
