    What do you think of actor Bernard Hill, who played King Theoden in the Lord of the Rings and the Captain in Titanic? See links for photos:

    He shows predominantly Borreby and Nordid (tendency towards Keltic Nordid, scil. Dinaromorph) influence. Profile shots:





    We can not see the exact shape of his occiput (curvoccipital or planoccipital, the latter being typical for the textbook Dinarid) from these pictures. What we can almost certainly say is that his skull is high compared to its length, which would point to Dinarid or Northalpinid (Borreby) influence. In my opinion, the Borreby as well as the Dinarid are there, giving him an overall "Keltic Nordid" appearance, the basis for dinarisation in casu being rather Borreby than an Aurignacid (Nordid) type.

    Alternatively one could say: Keltic Nordid with significant Cromagn(o)id admixture. Knowing more about his ancestry would provide more clues.

    I'm also curious about what other's think about him.
    Here are some more pics:






    I think he was around the age of 38 in the last three pictures. His hair was dyed a far darker shade.

    I would have said Anglo-Saxon, but after reading Waldstein's post, i tend to agree with his classification.

    Usually Anglo-Saxon is said to consist of Nordid (rather Hallstat than Keltic) and a CM component. I don't know if that component has to be Brünn or can also be Borreby. If it can be Borreby, than Anglo-Saxon it is. Otherwise he is a mixture of Nordid/Borreby going in a Dinaroid direction.
