    Even if he is very tanned he will never cease to appear to be white because of the features of the face, in fact even very similar to those of Antonio Banderas.

    genealogy of Luke’s paternal great-great-grandmother, Ida Margaret “Mae” Cartee (through Ida’s sister, Mary Jane Cartee McGlone) –

    on his father’s side, much of Luke’s ancestral lines trace back to Northern Ireland, making him largely largely Scots-Irish. I don’t see much English ancestry tbh.
