He provides examples of:
- Ambiguously Brown: Due in part to his Greek heritage, most people probably couldn't pin down his exact ethnicity at first glance — he's Greek, Scottish, and English. Example: his character on Downton Abbey was Turkish, partly justified due to Greece and Turkey's close geographic proximity to one another.
- But Not Too Foreign: His real last name, Taptiklis, is probably too much of a mouthful for English-speaking audiences to comprehend.
- Mr. Fanservice: Which, naturally, often causes him to have shirtless scenes in various projects he's involved with.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Obviously.
