He is at his best professional moment. He triumphs in the HBO series ‘Euphoria‘, he has just made the leap to the cinema with Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas and has recently become the new image of the Hugo Boss brand. The Australian actor Jacob Elordi enjoys the honey of success and, in addition, shows off his Basque origin.
The 24-year-old actor discovered surfing the internet that his Wikipedia review indicated that his origin was Spanish, something that he did not like, as he pointed out in an interview. The web encyclopedia noted that “Elordi was born in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, on June 26, 1997, to John and Melissa Elordi. He has two sisters. He is of Spanish descent».
“That is not true. I descend from Basques, which are a small town that is located between France and Spain, “he assured after reading it. “My grandfather would strangle me if he knew that on Wikipedia it says ‘Spanish descent’.” The interpreter has been in charge of correcting the detail of the publication of the virtual encyclopedia as can be seen in this video.
He also explained to his fans that Euskadi is “this little place between France and Spain.”
Nearly 2,500 Basques emigrated to the Antipodes in the first half of the 20th century to work in extremely harsh conditions in fields of sugar cane and tobacco plants. Australia needed labor and among these emigrants, it seems that the grandfather of the actor Jacob Elordi was found, who began to be known, especially among the younger audience, for his roles as a protagonist in the series ‘My First Kiss’ (Netflix ) or ‘Euphoria’ (HBO).
Now he makes the leap to the big screen in a thriller alongside Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas in the film Deep Water (Deep Waters in Spanish), which premieres this coming March 18 on the Amazon Prime Video platform. He has also become the new image of the perfume The Scent Le Parfum, by Hugo Boss.
