    Define "Germanic-looking"...

    I take it we are going down the good old Nordicism route again or something of the likes, implying that one subrace commonly found in Germanic countries would be more "Germanic-looking" than others? So by what are we going? Geography, percentage of the population, or anything else?

    I mean, don't get me wrong, I do agree that people look like they are from a certain area. If I were prompted to post an "Icelandic-looking" person the choice would probably be a specimen of the Trøndelag type, possibly with some Borreby admixture. If I were promoted to post a "Swiss-looking" person, I would probably choose someone that was mainly Dinarid but with a somewhat Nordid substrate. If I were told to post a Germanic-looking person, the person would be fairly Cro-Magnid with some Neolithic influence, and if we are talking about Dutch or English I'd post two different types of Keltic-Nordid, one blonde and one dark, or something.

    However, using "Germanic" at large, I find a bit of a large area. It is a bit like saying "Post an African looking person", which would prompt one person to post runner Kenenisa Bekele, and someone else would Nelson Mandela, who suffice to say, are morphologically as different as day at night, or at least as Borrebies and gracile Mediterannids.

    That all being said, for the category "Germanic-looking actor", I offer Swedish actor Peter Stormare. Being a mixture in type between Borreby and Nordid, with probably a Dinarid admixture (nose is too strong for either of the two types, general facial appearance is a little "rugged" if you get the drift), he expemplifies some of the types that are most commonly found pretty much everywhere in almost all Germanic countries.

    aka the "Post A Blond/Blonde Thread" because as we know, Germanic = yellow hair eyes:

    Sigurd, the thread title is "Post your favourite Germanic Looking Actors", so it´s a thread about personal subjective preferences. And so I think all subraces of the Germanic hemisphere are possible. Some may find a dinarizised one to be their favourite, others may go with Sub-Nordid or something like this.

    I don´t think this thread is meant to go a particular sub-race direction. Because we all know there isn´t one "Uber-Germanic" subrace. *g*

    Maybe some of us merely have a liking for blonde, Germanic actors and actresses.

    Nah it's also reflexive to associate the Germanic ideal with blondeness in threads like this.

    BTW Diane Kruger & Melissa Sagemiller may not be fully Caucasoid (eye shape, bone structure).

    That may be. I picked my favorite Germanic actresses, not "Germanic-looking", and I don't think it'd be illogical to assume that others might have done the same. Why do most of the actors/actresses listed have blonde hair? Plenty consider it beautiful. It could be too that the Germanic actors/actresses chosen based solely on their abilities have blonde hair. Nonetheless, most of the members on this forum can be trusted to understand that blonde hair does not automatically equal Germanic and vise versa, nor did anyone claim that it was the Germanic ideal, but that the Germanic actors/actresses chosen, for whatever reason, are their favorites. If you'd like to see more variety, feel free to post.

    Oh for crying out load. First Clare Danes and now these two?

    *I see Amerinds*

    Seriously, Kruger is from Germany....so what might be extra-Europid in her phenotype?

    And for the other two, I just don't see it. But anyway....

    And besides, I've seen plenty of 'pure' Europeans who have flaring malars...

    I disagree, the number of people here who list themselves as "Nordid/Nordic" in their profile indicates that not only are they "optimistic" about their own racial features, and that being Nordid/Nordic is seen almost as synonymous with Germanicism or is the Germanic ideal.

    Same as red hair is romanticised among the Irish expatriates (funnily enough red hair is actually more common in Scotland and NW England).

    They can always be classified in AnthroTax, I don't want to derail the thread any more into anthronerdism.
