    She's another toughie...

    She looks European in the first picture, East German or Eastern European of some kind, but not in the rest. In the rest she gives me a sort of Kamala Harris vibe.

    Even her eyes change in the rest of the pictures, getting a bit East Asian looking, and the nose a bit South Asian looking or even a bit of SSA. Is that possible?

    Are you sure it's the same woman? :)

    You stumped me Very interesting indeed.

    It’s the same woman from different times and age. Bear in mind that make up can change the look. I think on these pics with less make up and where she was younger you can see her facial features better. I give a hint we can safely assume she has no SSA admixture.

    With your first, spontaneous guessing, gut feeling you came pretty close in guessing her ethnicity right.

    You were close but still not totally correct.




    This woman is called Urszula Winicki. She is fully Polish, born and raised in Poland too. However, she migrated to Germany and works as actress there. She was a bit famous in Germany in the 80s, 90s since she played in a German television drama series. This woman is not a huge movie or TV star or so but rather unknown today. However, Eastern Germans who look like her are usually of Polish or Russian origin. So it makes sense that some Eastern Germans look a bit like her. Keep in mind that Germany has millions of nationals who are basically Germanized Slavic people from Poland, Russia, Ukraine or former Czechoslovakia. For instance, Ballack the German football player belongs to a Slavic minority the Sorbs. To be fair there are some Slavic women with her phenotype, albeit with blue eyes, pale skin and light hair. I was wondering if she has some diluted ancient Mongolian admixture. The Mongols, Huns raided, pillaged and raped their way from Central Asia till Central Europe and caused the migrations of nations.

    Yes, that "something" East Asian or Southeast Asian is what I was picking up on. It threw me off.

    Interesting it shows up more when she's older.

    She's not the first Slavic person in whom I've seen traces of that, although it's usually Russians.

    Attractive woman.

    I was not playing, but I looked at the pics and some angles seemed showing some flattening in the upper face, some forward position of cheekbones, so something 'east-asian', rather 'north'; agree concerning Slavs, they may show this influence sometimes, even Poles and Czechs, spite slight for the most, and not the bigger bumber of them.
