    You need to look at the facial contours. They are rather Faelid indeed. I know his pigmentation is a little darker than expected, which could be explained by a more pigmented type, eg Atlanto-Mediterranid, which may have also made him more linear.

    He was simply great in "Brideshead Revisited". He is one of my favourite actors.

    He is very ssouthern English looking in any case. I have not seen much of his look elsewhere in England.

    Some more pictures.





    He is fairly similar to the textbook example from Günther, who was classified as predominantly Faelid with a Dinarid strain. He is much younger in those pictures and his cheekbones are not as strong and his nose is straighter. The rest is essentially similar though.

    I thought along Nord/Med lines... he kind of reminds me of Joseph Goebbels, though it could just be the piercing gaze and slight overbite. Probably just a superficial resemblance.

    In any case, I agree he looks like a southern Englishman. I do not imagine him with a northern accent at all.

    This is what I thought too; he doesn't strike me as Atlanto-Med at all; definitely more Faelid.

    I'd imagine him with an Estuary English accent, judging from the pics alone. A Northern accent certainly would not suit him.

    You would not think that if you had seen the clothes he wear or how he carry himself. Neither do I understand why you may say that from the pictures alone because Estuary English is associated with lower middle class people. Is it not? He certainly does not look lower middle class (I'm not sure if one is able to tell from pictures, I like to think so). He speak the affected received pronunciation (RP) accent which is not very common any longer. It is also called Public School English. Queen’s English (even the Queen does not speak the sometimes ridiculed ultra-RP accent) and Oxford English are other names.

    Estuary English is indeed the new politically correct standard and it has taken over because it is not too posh. From what I understood the accent is a watered down RP with some Cockney. I think it sounds closer to Cockney than RP though.

    I consider Faelid a Nordid variety, as did several anthropologists (von Eickstedt did as well from what I know reading him through Gaston Backman).

    More narrow-faced Nordid is also possible but his facial shape seem squarish in most pictures.

    Joseph Goebbels was much more gracile, probably longer headed (look at his profile). His chin was also much weaker and it was retreating. I think he was Pontid. He is closer to the Bulgarian Pontid of Coon (1939and 1965). The same type is found among West Asian highlanders (Coon, 1965).

    Cheeky devils! It'd make him a damn sight more manly!

    Seriously, though, you might see him up in Northumberland. But definitely not round here.
