    Very interesting phenotype for which two explanations are possible in my opinion:

    1. (Keltic?)Nordid/Eastbaltid mix (on some pictures he looks a little bit like Klaus Maria Brandauer, also an actor, who clearly shows Eastbaltid influence)

    2. Lappid/(Keltic?)Nordid mix with some Cromagn(o)id.

    In the video, he shows some Dinaroid traits :His looks then come closer to the Keltic Nordid type than on the pictures, he even sometimes resembles Thilda Swinton who was classified Keltic Nordid/Borreby and/or Cromagnoid somewhere on this forum if I am not mistaken.

    Malicious looking man indeed.

    I think Joner's eyes show Lappid influence. Notice how his eyes tilt upwards at the far corners.

    I remember Joner from the Norwegian movie Gymnaslærer Pedersen, thinking he looked unusual. He kind of resembles two Dutch TV personalities:
