    she seems exactly as she should be. Her irish father or mother has probably blue eyes, blond hair and white skin and her cypriot father or mother is darker than her mother and has green or brown eyes, dark hair and darker skin than the irish part without being really dark, beacause greeks are WHITE people, you just have to see old greek paintings and sculptures to realise that….So the mixture is the result of that physical traits. She has blue eyes and white skin if you remove the artificial tan and some exotic factions like her nose which shows her greek background.
