    Interesting face. Here are other profile pictures of her (click to enlarge):





    She looks mesognathous (i.e. having a slightly projecting mandible). Maybe even prognathous. I don't know whether that would indicate any specific ancestry. But it's her nose which is most prominent/projecting. And broadish, I might add. As is her face. Her forehead isn't too high and slopes. She also looks paedomorphous, even for her young age. She doesn't seem to have any angularity in her jaws. And her lips aren't thin.

    My guess is paedomorphous Keltic Nordid with something else. Reduced Cromagnid? I don't know.

    (By the way, in the third photo she looks exactly like a cashier in my local supermarket.)

    Great find on the profile shot.

    I think her forehead to be typically Keltic Nordid. Overall facial shape is rather Keltic Nordid as well--wide at the forehead and then tapering downward.

    She does show some broadness in the upper cheeks and roundness of the mid and lower face. From 3/4 and side views the mandible shows strongly.

    The nose is indeed interesting and, I think, hard to place. In different photos, it may seem to take on a different appearance.

    Compare the profile photo that Anlef found to this side shot:





    The nose appears steeper in the true profile photo.

    In most photos, the subject's nose reminds me of Sarah Roemer's--but much more prominent.


    I woud classify her as Keltic Nordid/Bruenn.

    Very English-looking, in my opinion.

    She is probably between the ages of 16 and 19 in most of these photos.

    Ai, I think I made an embarrassing mistake. I found the profile shot by doing a Google picture search on her name, but I think the girl in the picture is another actress in the same movie (28 Weeks Later).

    Very sorry!

    But still, Ms. Poots has quite a projecting mandible. Doesn't this affect the classification in any way?

    I think that is indeed Emily Beecham. Emily Beecham plays the young lady at the beginning of 28 Weeks Later who is longing for her boyfriend to return to the hideout. She is named Karen in the script but has no name in the film. After a young boy on the run from the zombies enters the hideout, Karen peeks out of a boarded-up window. A zombie grabs her arm and bites it; she transforms into a zombie, and Don kills her with a crowbar. The shot Anlef provided was actually cut from the movie. It would have occurred at approximately 005:21.



    As for the subject Imogen Poots, her mandible does seem to be slightly projecting. But I think to claim mandibular pronagathy is a bit of a stretch. Her lower teeth do not seem to overbite her upper teeth.

    I do not know what effect a slightly projecting mandible would have on classification here.
