Many Egyptians were of Greek Heritage especially during the Ptolemaic Dynasty when Egypt was Ruled by the descendant of Alexander the Great's generals. Cleopatra was a member of said Greek Ptolemaic Dynasty thus depicting her with Greek features like Blue eyes and fair skin is quite appropriate. Their are many ways to depict the many types of people who existed in Egyptian Civilization who being near the Nexus of Europe,Asia and Africa had many different people from many different races living in them. To Claim that "Egyptian aren't white" is just plain bigotry,especially on what is obviously a fantasy interpretation that has nothing to do with race.
