    I won't reveal until we have some more.

    One person got one right. Two are sort of right.

    Irish or something quirky like a Finn/Udmurt,

    Ukrainian (broadly something NW of Black Sea though perhaps even edging towards f.e. Southern Poland),

    Czechoslovak,

    Western British Isles/French/N. Spanish (very hard to tell, she’s just a good-looking brunette),

    English,

    Northern Italian (this one could fit in so many places along a belt from most of France and the Alpine areas of Central Europe and across Southern Eastern Europe including Southern Russia)

    Sorry, can't tell who is who, and you only have five? Could you number them?

    I didn't think it would be this hard. Only 1 is a joke/trick.

    I'll wait a while to see if there are any more guesses and then I'll reveal.

    Ok, I'll reveal:

    1,2, and 3 are Welsh. If you listed one of the Celtic fringe countries I think you can count that as a win. Two and three are from a Welsh tv series I watched two weeks ago through amazon/acorn called "Keeping Faith". It's quite good, well acted and well plotted. Another one is called "Hidden". Honestly, it was well done, but so damn gloomy and depressing: weather, lighting, people, situations. I'm susceptible to being influenced by what I see, so it was a bad decision.

    Lowry Palfrey:


    Bradley Freegard and Eva Miles, who played the lead in bleached blonde hair.


    I haven't seen their 23andme results, but it's a completely Welsh production, and they were born in little Welsh towns.

    4 and 6 are both Irish actresses from an Irish police procedural also on acorn. Not "as" depressing as "Hidden" above, but pretty "dark". I do get why so many people said Italian for number four. I thought she might be as well. In fact, she looks like me. :) However, I looked her up and she is indeed of Irish descent.


    Natalie Radmall Quirke:





    Maria Kennedy Doyle:


    She's also a folk singer, with quite a discography, and played Catherine of Aragon in the Tudors. Decent accent work, I think. Of course, the real Catherine had reddish hair, which I think is difficult for Anglos to visualize. :)



    People from Britain got more of these right because they're familiar with the phenotypes in Britain.


    Number 5 was the "tricky" one. She's my father's cousin, so Emilian from the Appennines. :)

    No, as I said, as Irish as they come. The British Isles members got it; they recognized the phenotypes.

    OMG, I didn't even recognize her on that 1st pic you posted. I've only seen her in the Commitments and period movies/series, but not in real life. I would have said Spanish.

    The picture of her in the original post isn't actually from "real life". It's from the tv series I mentioned. It's called "Striking Out". The one of her as a young woman and the one at the award show are obviously from her private life.

    As you can see, I'm rather addicted to "crime" dramas. :)

    I'm a bit surprised these were that difficult. They weren't intended to be. Maybe it's because I've been surrounded by Irish people since we immigrated to the U.S. Well, and Southern Italians, and Ashkenazi Jews, and quite a few Germans too. You learn to distinguish them. :)

    The 4, 5 and 6 are the ones that were most familiar to me, even the 4 I was about to say also Spain. The 5 was very familiar to me from one moment to another I had the perception that I could communicate in Spanish with her, her lips, her attitude and look were recognizable to me, despite the fact that it might seem simple German or similar.

    I actually found this one very difficult myself...I guess I'm not very familiar with certain northwestern european characteristics
