Billy Boyd's Height
5ft 5.5in (166 cm)
Scottish Actor best known for playing Pippin in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. When asked his height remarks: "Five foot six, A wee bit taller than a hobbit"
. An older interview remarked that he mentioned 5ft 5 but was now saying a taller height. These photos are from Showmasters Film and Comic Con events in 2014. On the left we had roughly same shoes, on right I had near 0.4 inch less sneaker.
5ft 8 Rob and Billy

166 with your shoes advantage so he is 167 for sure
Editor Rob: we have similar shoes on left, I have 0.4 inch less footwear on the right.

Billy looking 5'6, 5'5.75ish. Looks as tho he could be the same height as Rob with a similar size head!

Rob is like almost 5'9 here.

Couldn't argue with this listing for Billy, looks 166cm, or 167cm in the shot with more footwear. If Elijah is shorter in person than Billy then 5ft 5 flat seems right for him, although I think there's a good chance they are both a bit over 5ft 5.

Editor Rob: if you're on a mobile/tablet then clicking the image does the same thing.

I saw him one time and would have guessed somewhere around 5'5-5'6.

Hard to believe Pippin will be 48 in August.

I see a small fraction over 3 inches
BSD said on 2/Apr/16

Rob, why the 0.25 upgrade for him?
[Editor Rob: saw him numerous times and I think looked it]

He was behind me at a cashpoint once. I am 5 foot seven and a half and he was at least an inch shorter.

Yeah Dom 5'7" works for me. I posted some barefoot pics of him with Evangeline Lilly where he clearly has the advantage (on her page awhile back). What throws a lot of people off with these guys is Elijah's lift habit.

I think he and Elijah come off as shorter (ie 5'4 claims)due to their more petite frames compared to the other two hobbit actors. I feel like Boyd and Wood are about the same height (max 5'6") and Dom slightly taller. Astin is hard to gauge to my eyes, though I feel like he is max 169cm.
I am 5'6.5" and get judged shorter than that because I'm smaller framed.(Though I'm officially 5'7" on my drivers license cuz they don't do halves, and why would i round down?! haha besides, five seven is easier to say right?)People are surprised when I do the old back to back measurement with say, a lanky 5'7" girl and I'm only a cm shorter.
[Editor Rob: dom looks...standing shoulder to shoulder with me no less than 5ft 7.]

I met Billy in Glasgow a few years ago and he was barely taller than my husband who is 5'5", not much though.

I read Sean Astin's memoirs on LotR---He says Billy is the shortest of the hobbits, and Sean is five-sixish. Dom is tallest, Sean says, and Elijah is slightly shorter than Sean (Is Elijah 5'5"-6"?). Billy is probably his self-confessed 5'5".

*correction* I actually measured my heels that I wore and they are 2 1/2 inch not 1 1/2 inch heels as I stated in my previous statement
Penny said on 17/May/06
Yes, that anonymous is me! Keep in mind I was wearing 2 1/2 inch heels and Billy was wearing maybe 1/2 to 3/4 inch heels on his boots.
Editor Rob said on 17/May/06
I added a pic of Billy and a fan, who I think made the last comment on 14th May on this page.

I met Billy a few times, I am 5' 51/2" I was wearing about 1 1/2 inch heels and he was wearing Beatle boots with about 3/4 inch heels. We were roughly the same size. I would say he is at LEAST 5' 6".
CelebHeights Editor said on 5/Nov/05
From the Scotsman newspaper this year...
"He’s grown two-and-a-half inches since we last met. Then, he shyly confessed to being 5ft 5in. Now he insists he’s actually 5ft 7in. "And a half," he adds crossly. Well, perhaps in Cuban heels. He doesn’t laugh"

i've met him a few years back, and billy, i love you to death, but there is NO WAY you're 5ft 7, hell not even 5ft6. both billy and elijah wood are no taller than 5ft4-5ft5 max. I am 5ft3, an i was looking at them pretty much eye to eye.

*Sorry, a correction: that should say "It depends on how big Li Tyler's heels are and how much lift Boyd uses"
Anyways, Boyd goes up to Liv Tyler's mouth (about 7-inch difference or slightly over). Tyler's got to be wearing at least 4-inch heels to gain that much height (assuming Tyler 5-10 and Boyd 5-6 and that he's wearing no lifts, just 1-inch shoes)

Is It Just Me?
Or Does This Guy Look SLIGHTLY... Just... Below That Mark?
I Have Been Looking At Photos Of Him And Lord Of The Rings Co-Stars,
For Elijah Wood Who I Believe Is No More Than 5ft 4in To Be The Same,
Height Then This Guy Must Be Slightly Smaller All The Other 5ft 6in Guys,
Are More Or Less Taller Than Him, A Bit Weird If You Ask Me!! Lifts Missing?
British Guy said on 23/Mar/05
Well... Billy All I Can Say Is 5ft 6in Is Just About Right!!
