Will Poulter is an English actor and producer. He is known for his roles in We’re the Millers, The Revenant, and Midsommar, among many others.

Will is the son of Caroline, a nurse, and Neil Poulter, a physician and Professor of Preventive Cardiovascular Medicine at Imperial College London. His father is English. His mother, who is from Kenya, has English, and likely Scottish, ancestry.

Will’s paternal grandfather is Eldred Poulter (the son of James Poulter and Hannah Stead). Eldred was born in Pontefract, Yorkshire, England. James was the son of Henry Poulter and Sarah Bell. Hannah was the daughter of John Stead and Eleanor Milner.

Will’s paternal grandmother is named Joyce M. Norton.

Will’s maternal grandfather was Jack Barrah, a well-known game warden in Kenya (the son of Enoch Jack Barrah and Mary Elizabeth Hindle). Jack was born in Nairobi, Kenya. Enoch was born in Numurkah, Victoria, Australia, the son of Frederick William Barrah, whose parents were from Pembrokeshire, Wales, and of Sarah Anne Mottashaw.

Will’s maternal grandmother was named Patricia Ewing “Pat” Patterson.

A 2007 article seemed to state that Will’s mother is Jewish. However, this was an error.

      You’ve made this comment on more than a half-dozen other pages, and comments like it on half-a-dozen more. Stop spamming this website with this crap.

          If someone wants to share their opinion of Will Poulter and their surprise of his ethnic origins that seems relevant to the purpose of this website. Vitordesouza is not spamming

            Will Poulter should be tagged as likely Irish. Will’s 4th great-grandmother Sarah Moran (1796-1831), was born in Scotland but has a surname very distinctly related to Ireland. As someone who is half Irish I know the surnames of the British Isles and “Moran” is very Irish and usually comes from counties such as Mayo, Ireland. I couldn’t find any ancestors past Sarah Moran, sadly.

            “she looks ashkenazi jew” is not even ” to share their opinion of Will Poulter and their surprise of his ethnic origins” because he’s not even talking about him.

            And, yes, even if it were, leaving that exact same comment on a dozen pages is the literal definition of spamming.
