My post is not a very serious response to Lemmi but I have just collected here a few photos about wellknown Estonians with Finnish roots/ people of Finnish ancestors. They have almost all ancestors from the Finns from Ingeria, thus here they are usually called Ingrian Finns or Ingrians and not Finns.
I don't know how strong is their "Finnishness", almost nobody of them is pure Finnish and some of them may have only a Finnish grandparent.

1 . Actor and theatre director Elmo Nüganen

2. Conductor and choirmaster Andres Mustonen

3. Opera singer Jassi Zahharov

4. Film director Arvo Iho

5. Easy-listening composer Andres Valkonen

6. Musician Lembit Saarsalu

7. Politician Robert Antropov

8. Politician Meelis Atonen

9. Handball coach Ain Pinnonen

10. Soviet era TV star Alice Talvik -she is not with Ingrian but with Finland's Finnish ancestors: mother Finn, father Finnicized Estonian

I managed to get a ticket for Hortus Musicus' concert in Tallinn some months ago and was surprised to see the similarity in appearance of Andres compared to Jussi Parviainen, a finnish actor and what not.

Great concert and a very talented musician. Andres, I mean, not Jussi who's the guy attached for comparison.
