    This is her father David Tonkin:

    Phoebe could be related to a political Tonkin family in Australia. But I am
    not sure how common the surname Tonkin is. On Facebook, there are many, many people with the last name Tonkin in Australia.

    I think Phoebe is part Indian, Maori, or Jewish. She is way too beautiful and exotic to be white.

      Is this comment coming from an American?

      • Lee says:

        I find these categorizations based on skin melanin content both disturbing and downright silly, what is “white people” how would an American know the person he/she is meeting is Southern European? They’ll have no idea. Simple educating system, but can you blame them?

      I have seen more exotic looking and tanner-than-this whites. You obviously dont know what whites look like, you are probably a stupid American who thinks whites are white haired, light blue eyed, seethrough human beings.
      And also imagine someone saying, she cant be black/Asian/…, she is too pretty to be black/Asian/….! You are racist and on your misfortune, Phoebe is white, now go cry to your mommy.
