I dont think u have seen too many greek people. Depending on your ancestors, Greeks can range from blue eyed, blonde haired to tanned skinned, black haired.
I know Sean Connery is Scottish. I thought he might be Irish ancestry based on his last name. He has the darker Celtic look that's called "Black Irish" in the US. He played a Berber chieftain once and looked reasonably authentic.
I've known a few Greek people. There's not a lot in L.A. but they still pop up now and them. All the Greek people I've known have been distinctly white looking brunettes. In other words NOT blue eyed blonde nordic types and NOT dark racially ambiguous "Arab" types.
There seems to be a reluctance (particularly among Northern Europeans) to recognize an actual indegenous Southern European white type. A type that is not Nordic, not Hamito-Semitic and not a mix of the two.
Sean connery - could be right.
Many irish have emmigrated to Scotland over the centuries and vice versa.
Regarding southern europeans - of course northern europeans tend to not recognize.
Over centuries, in europe, Royal families have married into other royal families of different countries. Invasions and wars, trade and immigration have kept cultures and european "looks" etc similar.
in general, most northen european people like to group other peoples from the other continents eg, Asia and Africa as the same.
ie. Chinese and Japanese are just asian.
Nigerian and south African are black.
But then again this can be good.
although having and identity is great. too much division isn't.
