Hayworth was not Jewish. Her name may sound Jewish, but it's not her real name, her birth name was Margarita Carmen Cansino. Her grandfather was Antonio Cansino, a famous Gitano Gypsy who is credited with creating Spanish dance as it is known today, which is a combination of Flamenco (a dance created by Gitanos in Andalusia, Spain) with Spanish folk dance..with his most famous creation being the bolero dance.
