Mike Faist, full name Michael David Faist, is an American actor and singer. He plays Riff in West Side Story (2021) and stars on the show Panic.

He was adopted at birth, by Julia and Kurt Faist, who is mostly of German descent.

Mike has said:

I’m adopted, and I met my birth mom right when I was about to move to New York. I was 17 when I met her and her side of the family. They are a family of pilots. She’s got two young boys who are not so young anymore; they’re both men in college now. I was trying to develop a relationship with them. The oldest son, Christopher, my half-brother, wants to be in the Air Force as a captain… Christopher took me up on a flight, and I was thinking, “Hey, I can do this! That’s how we can bond!”

Kurt Faist is the son of Curtis Lee “Curt” Faist (the son of John L. Faist and Sophia/Sophie Christina Fulkert) and Doris E. Hetrick (the daughter of Perry Oscar Hetrick and Ella Evangeline/Evangaline Stierwalt).

      Surely real Southern Europeans don’t look Arabs we aren’t the same like you Brazilian a non-Euro who look Arab -comical isn’t It?- believe, he doesn’t look in general as Euro from every our own place of Europe he has the American face and with such big nose in Murica should be called Jew. A non-Euro like you can’t distinguish races and can’t see how much the “white” Americans and the rest of the fake white from the other New World Countries are so different from us Euros you see only the colors instead the features also.
      Surely you don’t know races not all Southern Euros are dark haired and eyed in fact there are the Alpine from North and Central Italy who are very light the opposite of the white Spaniards and Portuguese.
