    Classify Malin Akerman, Swedish Actress

    I'm suprised nobody has brought her up at all on this forum. She's a Canadian actress by way of Sweden. She caught my eye while I perused through channels on televsion and saw the movie, "27 Dresses". I find her very attractive - very youthful and fresh looking. Do you think she looks mostly Nordic?

    Why do you think she would be Nordic? Because she's blonde or has Swedish ancestry?

    She's not Nordic. Nordics/Nordids have narrow and long heads/faces. She seems to be Borreby or maybe Västmanlands type (i don't know much about the latter type, but i think she resembles it). There could be some minor Nordic admix. though, but she's far from the average Nordic.

    No, I know enough to know that being Scandinavian does not mean one is of the Nordic type. I thought her face is long-ish, she has a straight little nose. Although I did notice her eye shape is a-typical of the Nordic variety.

    Silly question- where does the Borreby type originate?

    Don't pin me down on it, but i believe that would be Denmark.

    She could very well have Nordid admixture that would've made her face a little bit more longish and more gracile than the average Borreby mean. But still, her appearance is in no way to be called mostly Nordid, because for that her face and head are too wide and her facial bonestructure too robust (Nordids have much sharper features). Also, small noses (relatively to the rest of the face) are more Cromagnid like. Nordids more often have medium and even large noses, that are either straight or (mildly) convex.

    Malin Akerman has a typical Cromagnid face that is spread out over the whole breadth of the head and shows a short midfacial area and corresponding short nose. She does appear somewhat gracile for a Borreby, especially in the profile shots.

    Indeed, she is not Nordid but Nordeuropid to put it that way. I think she can be best classified as Dalofaelid with Borreby and Nordid influences.

    My oh my, I would never say Nordic. In my opinion she rather quite easily can be classified as a Falish (Borreby with Nordic admixture). She seems to have quite heavy bones and overall be a big woman. But definitely central (Germany) of north European.
