Wentworth Miller

An increase in diversity and mixed race couples will hopefully mean greater equality and stronger gene pools in the future. But sometimes mixed race stars are not as easy to spot as a Halle Berry or President Barack Obama. Check out our list of stars who have Black ancestry in their DNA.

The Prison Break star can credit his dreamy looks to bloodlines more diverse than the United Nations. His father is of Black, Jamaican, English, German, Jewish and Cherokee descent, and his mother is Russian, French, Dutch, Syrian and Lebanese. Thankfully, Miller simplified it by saying, "my father is Black and my mother is white."
