What Is Aubrey Plaza’s Ethnicity in The White Lotus? Answered

Here’s what Aubrey Plaza’s ethnicity is in The White Lotus.

The White Lotus season 2 presents us with a whole new cast of characters, set in the Sicilian branch of the luxurious hotel franchise. Aubrey Plaza, perhaps best known for her role in Parks and Recreation, is one of the main characters this season, and certainly one of the more intriguing ones as well. Here’s what you need to know about Aubrey Plaza’s ethnicity in The White Lotus.

Aubrey Plaza’s Ethnicity in The White Lotus Explained

There’s a short scene between Aubrey Plaza’s character, Harper, and her husband in the premiere episode where she comments that they’re Cameron and Daphne’s “white-passing”, “diverse friends”. For viewers who aren’t necessarily familiar with Plaza herself, this comment might seem a little confusing especially since her ethnicity isn’t immediately obvious just from a first glance.

Aubrey Plaza is actually of Puerto Rican descent; her father is Puerto Rican, and her mother is of Irish and English descent. Plaza has also mentioned that she has Taino ancestry as well –an indigenous people of the Caribbean.

With all that in mind, it makes complete sense for Harper to make the observation that she and her husband Ethan, played by Will Sharpe who is half-Japanese, are basically the “diverse” friends of the Caucasian couple, Cameron and Daphne.

That’s all you need to know about what Aubrey Plaza’s ethnicity is in The White Lotus. Be sure to search for Twinfinite for more news and information on the series, including all Survivor player cameo appearances so far, and our theories on who dies this season.
