Colin farrel is actually darker than him, tiny bit

Yes he could look British as well as German, Dutch....Europe isn't cut and dry based on clines of gradient alone, but with some overlap. At the polar ends of the spectrum you will see distinction though, such as Xavi Hernandez probably never passing as full British

and Penelope Cruz would be very exotic

On the same token Paul Betanny would likely not pass as Spanish or Portuguese

and Naomi Watts would be very exotic

That's not to say they don't have blondes in Spain, but they likely won't have that look.

The difference between Italians and Northern Europeans is not only in hair/eye/skin colour but also in facial features and head shape.

I find grouping all Italians into one category meaningless as they are probably one of the less homogeneous nations. The "dark" Italian stereotype obviously comes from the southern part of the country, but I've seen so many Italians that don't fit this stereotype at all.

Julia do the maths, if we all go back just 20 generations every one of us has 2 MILLION DIRECT ancestors, now I don't know exactly what the population of Europe was 20 generations ago but I can guarantee that both you and me share some of them! You have a narrow minded, Victorian way of thinking when it comes to this kind of thing.
