While there are various speculations about Barry Keoghan and his ethnicity, given his distinct looks, the Saltburn actor is of Irish ethnicity and was born in Summerhill, Dublin.

However, as Barry Keoghan has not revealed much about his birth parents, his origin and ethnicity have remained ambiguous.

Many fans claim he looks like an Asian and might be of mixed ethnic heritage. In the meantime, some online reports used the ambiguity surrounding his parents and said Keoghan was born to a White Irish father and a Black Irish mother.

But that’s far-fetched information! Barry’s mother, Debbie, is clearly not black, as he once posted a picture of her on his Instagram.

Keoghan’s monolid eyes are the reason many think he could be hapa!

Barry Keoghan, star of The Banshees of Inisherin, was born to his parents on October 17, 1992, in Dublin, Ireland.

Talking to GQ magazine, Keoghan revealed that he had no relationship with his father and lost his mother, Debbie, to a substance overdose at the age of 12.

Apart from that, there’s no information about his parents, let alone their origin and ethnic roots.

Nonetheless, Keoghan credited his looks to his mother, Debbie, as he said, “She was 6ft, long black hair, that’s where I get my looks sure,” to Irish Post.

Now, due to his distinct facial features, including monolid eyes, which somewhat resemble those of Asian people, many speculate he has Asian roots. As the identity of his father remains shrouded in mystery, his father might even share Asian roots, as nothing negates this speculation.

One Redditor started a discussion thread about whether Keoghan was hapa. There, some fans highlighted he might share Asian roots in his ancestry, while others pointed out that even though being 100% white, they have some relatives who look Asian.

Regardless, in interviews, Sabrina Carpenter’s current boo, Barry Keoghan, has often said he is a proud Irish and loves his country.
