Sydney, Australia. Grandson of Basques, Jacob Elordi is an Australian actor (Brisbane, 1997), who plays Noah Flynn in the popular Netflix series The Kissing Booth. He has 9,6 million followers in Instagram. This week he appeared in a kind of interview or direct video for GQ (see the video below) and he red life his entry in Wikipedia where he appeared as “Spanish descent” wanting it changed to “Basque descent.”  Wikipedia accepted his proposal and changed the text.


This is the interview with GQ.  At 5’49” he talks about his Basque origin

Taking two points into considerations, he also requested that they include that he has three sisters, not as reported on Wikipedia, Wikipedia now says that “he is of Basque descent and that he has three older sisters.”

“My grandfather would strangle me if he had known that it said I was of Spanish descent,” the actor says in the video
