There isn't any on screen evidence that Saavik was half Romulan, true, but it's so well developed in the novels and comics, I accept it as hard canon.
Personal canon is the word you're looking for, because if there isn't any screen evidence, it's not canon at all.

I believe it was intended in the scripts, wasn't it, and just cut out. Is that true or has my imagination run away with me? If so, I wonder if either Alley or Curtis were given any acting instructions on the subject? I do remember hearing Curtis talking about being instructed to play Saavik less emotional.
It was intended for Saavik to be half-Romulan in TWOK. By TSFS, that idea was dropped and for all intents and purposes, Saavik was full Vulcan.

But it’s a helpful approach to rationalize her tears at the end of ST II: TWOK, because shedding tears would be totally distasteful and out of character for any educated Vulcan.
