Tyler Blackburn is an American actor and singer.

Tyler’s mother has English, Croatian, Welsh, German, and Scots-Irish/Northern Irish ancestry. Tyler has also said that he has Czech, Swedish, Comanche Native American, and Cherokee Native American ancestry. This ancestry could possibly be from his father. It is not clear if this Comanche or Cherokee Native American ancestry has been verified/documented.

Tyler’s Blackburn line can be traced back to John Blackburn, who was born, c. 1675, in Loughgall, Armagh, Ireland, the son of John Blackburn and Elizabeth.

Tyler’s maternal grandfather is Jerry Donald Blackburn (the son of Darrell Lester/F. Blackburn and Betty Griffin). Jerry was born in California. Darrell was the son of Alma Lester Blackburn and Vida Dean Mulliner.

Tyler’s maternal grandmother is Judith Yakovich (the daughter of Anthony Smith Yakovich and Paloma Susan Mellor/Millor). Judith was born in California. Anthony was the son of Croatian parents, Anton/Anthony Smith Yakovich and Antonia Mihelcich/Mehilich. Paloma was the daughter of James William Mellor, Jr. and Mary Elizabeth Haycock.

    Tyler was actually born Tyler Jordon Snow

    Tyler hangs out with some people surnamed Snow, perhaps cousins or half-siblings, who resemble him quite alot. Could someone find his Snow father?

    • andrew says:

      do you think he looks Eurasian or something?

      You told me I am too preoccupied with looks, but you hardly get the likes of Adam Driver, Noah Ringer, Ashley Graham or even Johnny Depp (among many others I forget atm) among Native Europeans. So what’s goin’ on?

      • bablah says:

        I see people that look like them daily. What Europe do you live in where Ashley Graham is seen as unusual?

      • madman says:

        Yes, I do think he looks quite Eurasian. So you think that it’s hypocritical for me to say that since I think you’re “too preoccupied with looks”?

        I never stated my opinion on what ethnicity I think Adam Driver looks like. I’m only bothered that you often use the looks of vaguely ethnically ambiguous people as clear-cut proof of their ethnic origin, writing things like “Here is the proof she’s not fully Italian”, “his biological father… is not white”, and “She isn’t fully Caucasian”. If you trust your own intuition better than evidence, there’s really no point in discussing this any further.

        And by the way, when it comes to Driver, he’s 1,89 meters tall. Would it be unreasonable for me to say that it’s proof that he’s not part Asian? (answer: yes)

    Wikipedia says: “He is of English, Welsh, Czech, Swedish and Chinese descent.”

    The source is a dead link, but the text says: Erica (June 6, 2012). “Chatting with Tyler Blackburn from Pretty Little Liars”. ABC Family.

    So it seems like it’s something Tyler actually said. I wonder if it’s still available somewhere.
