Looks full brittish&irish.
No, she looks more Slav… a qt.
I’ve lived in Ireland for almost my entire life, she would stand out here. In fact, she reminds me of Danish Eurovision winner Emmelie de Forest, who also looks like a Slav.
Not at all, ethnically I’m mostly Scottish with some French and English ancestry, Northern Ireland consists mostly of ethnic Scots (or at least until recently) but also many Irish people… Again, it’s not black or white, someone who “looks Slavic” doesn’t have to look like Oleg Mongol or like some kind of aggressive looking that you make it out to be, she has a look that I associate with Northeastern Europeans and I can’t remember ever seeing or meeting an Irish(wo)man (or a Brit either for that matter) looking like her. I take it you’ve never been here?
De Forest is not a Danish surname, it’s French Huguenot, and neither Shipka or Emmelie strike as Slavic looking. Given the Kidman comment, you have to be a troll.

Looks like she’s 0% Czech. Her grandfather’s family comes from Martin, Slovakia and the surrounding villages.
