How tall is Brett Dalton

Brett Dalton's Height

6ft 2in (188 cm)

American actor best known for playing Grant Ward on TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. On his twitter page he once mentioned his height, saying "I'm 6'2". In this 2016 Starfury Photo (taken by Martin) I had about 1/3rd inch more sneaker than Brett.

Rob, this is probably me, but the more I see this picture, the more I'm convinced Brett is a legit 6'2" person. I would agree with what you said. Like you said, he doesn't have the best posture when taking pictures.

186cm 100%
Bard said on 14/Mar/17
Strong 6'1, accounting for footwear difference.
CD said on 11/Mar/17
Rob, would you say there's any tilt in your favour here? Based on the height chart he is looking around 6ft 0.5 range but when looking at the photo from an angle I can believe he looks at least 5 inches taller than you, plus less footwear...
Editor Rob: CD, the camera is on a tripod so not being hand-held, it's probably as straight as you cuold get.
Berta said on 11/Mar/17
I thing he is half incheckning under the listing not more
S.J.H said on 24/Feb/17
Dalton is really 6'1.25 up here he did'nt look quite 185cm but 1/3 less he can be 186cm
Mark(5'9.25 said on 3/Feb/17
Another under 6'0.5" listing again.. -__- Let's ignore the fact Rob had the footwear advantage and Brett was behind the camera.
6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 3/Feb/17
His eye level 5'8, which means that it is a maximum of 6'1. Excluding shoes and hair, he most likely will be 6'0.5.
Mike said on 26/Jan/17
I don't understand how people think he looks 6ft here. He looks about 6ft 1-6ft 2 here tbh, and plus Rob has footwear advantage, so he would be pretty close to 6ft 2, maybe 6ft 1.75 is a better listing, but he is NOT 184. That's such bullcrap and retarded to say he looks under 6ft 1 here.
Sammy Derrick said on 18/Jan/17
Brett Dalton 6'1.5
phil said on 1/Dec/16
i really can't see how he could 6"2, he look about 6"1 there if you take into consideration footwear difference and the camera angle. And those who say he look taller on tv, keep in mind theres a lot of factors that can influence it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/16
Rob, which is more likely, Dalton measuring a little under 6ft2 or Luke Mitchell measuring a little over 6ft1?



They look rather close on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., maybe Brett just nipping Luke slightly but never by a full inch.
Editor Rob: all I can say in person Dalton gave a slightly taller look than Mitchell, but the footwear difference (or swing) is at least 0.8 inch range.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 23/Nov/16
The 185 cm claims are ridiculous.
Booker said on 12/Nov/16
Most probably the biggest mistake on this site. This guy is 185 cm. In this pic he looks 187 cm with shoes.

S.J.H said on 4/Nov/16
Dalton at most 6'1.25 and luke mitchell 6'0 , seriously real 6'2 is almost way taller than dalton
Sarah said on 24/Oct/16
Just about 6'2"
Pierre said on 24/Oct/16
For me Brett is in 6"1' range.With same shoes and postures(Rob is a little more relaxed imo) the peak of Rob's head would be at the same height as Brett's eyes imo=imo the difference is about ~12 cm=Rob 173 Brett around 185 or strong 185=6"1'(185.42)
Mark said on 30/Sep/16
I think roughly 6'2" is good for Dalton. Despite less footwear, he has an edge on Luke Mitchell who is a solid 6'1".
Mark said on 27/Sep/16
6'1.75" is the worst I give Dalton. 6'2" is fine for him.

I'm serious, if I find another comment that says '511" for Dalton,' I'm going to laugh so hard that I might likely run out of oxygen.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/16
Dalton: 187.5cm
Mitchell: 185.5cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/16
Dalton: 187.5cm
Mitchel: 185.5cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Sep/16
Rob, could a fraction under this possibly be closer?
Editor Rob: at worst 6ft 1.75, wouldn't go lower than that range.
Mark said on 22/Sep/16
Not to mention Dalton doesn't always have the best posture, so try meeting someone who looks 6'2" or more and know that a lot of photos can be deceiving.
Mark said on 19/Sep/16
Okay, the 6'1" claims are just insane. Even if anyone didn't meet him, Dalton clearly has an inch over Mitchell, a solid 6'1" person.

The chart isn't always right because sometimes the person standing is slightly away from the camera or the image is distorted.

I'm going to buy Dalton at 6'2" since he had a footwear disadvantage here and he still has an edge on Luke Mitchell.
Mark said on 15/Sep/16
@S.J.H then we should downgrade Luke Mitchell to 5'11" if you want to play it that way.
TK said on 10/Sep/16
The posts below are from site enthusiasts who are using visual perspectives and this one photo. They have never watched Brett dalton, he is very tall. Taller than 6ft 1.5 craig ferguson and towers on agents of shield
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Aug/16
The 6ft1 and below claims are ridiculous....
S.J.H said on 5/Aug/16
6'0.5 at best

NX said on 4/Aug/16
________________

5'11" is way too low no matter how you look at it. The crown of Rob's head reaches just below Dalton's eyes, and since the average length from the eyeline to the crown of the head is roughly 4.5", he'a already 6'1" there. Take away Rob's 1/3" of footwear, and he's about 6'1 1/3"
Mark said on 4/Aug/16
NX If that's the case then we should downgrade Luke Mitchell to 5'10" then.
NX said on 4/Aug/16
Take away the hair and footwear and hes 5'11 max. There is definitely no more than 3 inches between him and rob.
shiva 181 cms said on 3/Aug/16
This guy looks max 186 cms adjusting the diff so adding 1/3 inch makes him 187 cms i think rob he can be downgraded to 6'1.75 or 6'1.5 rather giving afull 6'2 which he isnt
The Man said on 3/Aug/16
Dalton's obviously not quite the full 6'2". He must be at least a strong 6'1" though.
Mark said on 2/Aug/16
The fact that Brett had a footwear disadvantage means that he would be taller than in the picture. Also, Dalton edges out Luke Mitchell who is a legit 6'1".
Bard said on 1/Aug/16
Strong 6'1 judging from the pic and footwear disadvantage.
Josh said on 27/Jul/16
The height chart makes him look below 6'2, but I'm sure if he stood his tallest he would be that. He definitely nothing under 6'1.5
Dr 188 said on 26/Jul/16
I have met him ,Unfortunately no pic , but he is definitely 188 cm

If you remove his hairline, i would say he is 6'0"

Mark said on 19/Jul/16
The footwear disadvantages is the reason why Brett looks that tall. Also, meeting him in person would actually be a lot better because you would get the sense of how tall a person is.

Dalton is an inch taller than Luke Mitchell.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jul/16
I wouldn't argue less than 187cm because he's at a disadvantage in footwear. I see a strong 6ft1 in the photo.
slothee said on 15/Jul/16
His hair just grazes the 6'1" mark in that photo. If you had 1/3in more footwear, or even 1/2in more footwear, he'd still struggle with 6'2". I'd give him 6'1.5" but even I think that's generous as well.
Man said on 12/Jul/16
He's Deffo 6"2
Nils said on 12/Jul/16
looks 6'1 range in photo, Rob are you closer to the camera? appears so to me.
If not i think it's pretty clear this is not a 6ft 2 man.
Editor Rob: I'd have said within an inch.

Ideally I should actually stand between 2-4 inches nearer than a taller man because the high point of the smaller man's head is further from the camera than the forehead/nose/bridge of the taller man.

Here's what I mean: Click Here

With the 186 guy from the challenge I appear probably about 171-2cm against him in the photo. He gains advantage in the camera frame because the top of my head is a few inches further away than his nose/bridge area...
If I moved closer by about 3-4 inches the top of my head would be roughly the same distance to the camera as his nose/bridge area and neither of us would gain any sort of advantage.

I'd need to be over 4 inches in front of a guy like that to start gaining any camera advantage against a taller guy (if the camera is under 5ft 8).
Eric said on 11/Jul/16
6'0.5 or 184 no more
184guy said on 10/Jul/16
Rob,I'm having hard time to find this guy 1.5 taller than the 184 guy
Click Here
Editor Rob: he is taller than that, but yeah I can understand how he might not look an inch taller.
Peter 179cm said on 10/Jul/16
He barely looks taller than 6'0 with the height chart,maybe 184cm and 185 if you add his hair...As i said before,he's 185cm at most.
Editor Rob: I would be surprised if he was as short as 6ft 1.
Alex said on 8/Jul/16
As I seid, this guy looks not over 184 cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jul/16
He's not as low as 6ft1 flat or not under
Johnny said on 7/Jul/16
WTF ?? 189-190 out of bed?? Is he a Elastic Man or something?? Despite the fact he is a Inhuman in the TV series , its quite impossible a man arround 6ft 2.5 -3 (190cm) in the morning shrinks into a flat 6ft1 ,just like its shown in the picture above .Just look at the F*%CKING height chart added!!!!! In fact, im also 184.5cm night and arround 186.5 cm right after awakening, which i believe its arround Brett´s range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jul/16
I doubt he's under 187cm.
Andrea said on 6/Jul/16
Ahahaha, Alex, what's your problem with shoes?
Rob is a strong 5'8 BAREFOOT, this guy looks 184 at most, add 1/3 inch for shoe difference and he does look 185ish, IN THIS PHOTO!
The same Rob said that a couple of cms were probably lost in the picture, though!
So 187ish (6'1.5-6'1.75 zone) is probably what he would measure!
Peter 179cm said on 5/Jul/16
Looks nearly 184cm with perfect posture next to Rob,with a bit less footwear.MAX 6'1 for this guy,Rob definitely overestimated him.I'd say he's 1 inch overlisted here,if not 3cm.
Alex said on 4/Jul/16
If he was a 190 with shoes on, there would be 16-15 cm of difference between Rob and Dalton, that's a lot...I don't see all this difference in the pic.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jul/16
Out of bed: 189/190cm
Before bed: 187/188cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jul/16
184cm is a joke. A solid 187cm at least and probably 189-190cm in shoes
Alex said on 2/Jul/16
You're really too optimistic about this guy Rob. Next to him you should be around 177-178 cm, in that case, he would be 189-190 cm, and so, 187-188 cm barefoot, without doubt. He seems 187 cm just with shoes, at most, so I really can't imagine how he could be a real 187 cm without footwear. It's just impossible.
Editor Rob: I don't think I overestimated him, but of course I am open to such a possibility...
jajamen said on 2/Jul/16
Rob, is 6'1.75 good for him?
Editor Rob: it is arguable yes.

Alex said on 1/Jul/16
Rob, have you counted this guy with shoes on? Actually he can be a 187 with shoes, but he must be 184 barefoot. Otherwise in this pic he is around 189-190 cm, and would be short next to you, also if you was 175 cm in that pic.
Editor Rob: in any of those comparison photos, it is just as if we didn't have shoes...of course you should add a third of an inch onto brett because he had less footwear.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/16
Dmeyer said on 26/Jun/16
So 12-12,5cm eye level plus 1cm shoes plus 173,2cm around 186,5cm in the pic

Which really would make him 187.5cm since he has less shoe.
the Slav said on 30/Jun/16
Rob; he isnt 188 cm at all. Looks 185-186 cm and has good posture
Editor Rob: he might not look as tall in this photo, but in person he looked taller than 6ft 1.
mike m said on 28/Jun/16
ummm... on that height chart he is at least an inch under 6-2.
Powerhouse said on 28/Jun/16
He's about 6'1
Alex said on 27/Jun/16
186 cm no more.
Dmeyer said on 26/Jun/16
So 12-12,5cm eye level plus 1cm shoes plus 173,2cm around 186,5cm in the pic
Editor Rob: depends on how much hair he has, that can be harder to tell at times.
184guy said on 25/Jun/16
I see 6'1-6'1.25 in the photo
+ 0,3 senaker 6'1.3-6'1.55 so about 187 is fair
Johan said on 25/Jun/16
6'1.5" 187cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jun/16
185cm is too low and 183cm is just a joke. Anywhere from 186-188cm is an arguable range.
Dmeyer said on 23/Jun/16
To me hé looks max 10cm over rob like 6 ft 1/8 183cm plus 1cm shoes 184cm
Editor Rob: I think his eyelevel is probably nearer 5 inches than 4.5 range.
Alex said on 23/Jun/16
185 cm in this pic
mrtguy said on 21/Jun/16
Come on is this how a 6'2'' is really suppose to look next to a 5'8'' guy??
Editor Rob: he should look taller...

I do think he is taller than he looks though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jun/16
Somewhere in the 187-188cm zone looks closer. Doesn't look much over 6ft1 here…
Peterson188cm said on 19/Jun/16
Rob, What time of day this photo was taken ?? He does look a strong 6'1.
Editor Rob: that was about 11-11.15am.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jun/16
I think he gives a similar impression to Luke Mitchell but has less footwear. Brett at a weak 6ft2 and Luke at a strong 6ft1 is possible. They also look close on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
TapeWormMeasure said on 19/Jun/16
Where did you get that shirt Rob? I love it
Editor Rob: I pretty much wear Cabela shirts all the time, they usually have good pockets for keeping passport, tickets etc safe....
Leo 5'8 said on 18/Jun/16
Looks 6'0 flat in the photo, but Rob had 1/3 more snicker
Alex 6'0 said on 18/Jun/16
Taking into account the footwear I can see 6'1 for him. Certainly not 6'2
Arch Stanton said on 18/Jun/16
Rob, is a similar sort of height to Clive Owen possible? Taking into account what you said and having a look at him in other pics I've have gone with 6'1.75. In that 187 range, guessing that he might dip a little under the 6'2". In the photo he does look more 6'1 but then it's a photo and as Andrea says big Colin could look and inch inch and half shorter in his photo than reality.
Editor Rob: you could make an argument for a fraction under 6ft 2 of course, but I wouldn't go much lower as the bottom of a range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jun/16
"Brett Dalton's Height is 6ft 1¾in (187.325cm)"
Strong 5ft9 said on 17/Jun/16
Either he's 6'1.5 or 6'1.75. But 6'2 is pretty close and maybe a good estimate as well.
Andrea said on 17/Jun/16
Rob, since there are still some people who say he looks over 6'1 with you, can you make the "mugshot style" photo for him too??? I'd say he looks 184 at most, without considering any footwear difference :)
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 17/Jun/16
Looks about 6'1" here. Maybe he'd measure closer to 6'2" than 1", but he very well could be somewhere between the two marks.
Andrea said on 17/Jun/16
Yeah, Tyson is one of the very few cases where he can look a bit taller than his listing... But generally they all look shorter than their listing if you try to be as objective as possible!
Shredder said on 17/Jun/16
I am not going to lie . He looks about 6'0.75 here or so , with less footwear I'd give him 6'1.25 , If he's 6'2 than it's a rare pic where this isn't the true telling of hi height lol.
Danimal (176-178cm) said on 16/Jun/16
No way is that 6'2". That's not even 6'1".
Moke said on 16/Jun/16
"nobody is infallible, they can over or under-estimate, although I do try my best not to get an honest estimate."
I don't quite follow. Can you help me Rob? For Dalton I think 6'2 is definitely closer than 6'1.
Editor Rob: I'm just saying that I don't think he looks over 6ft 1 in this photo, but in person I thought was comfortably over 6ft 1 up close and didn't think I over-estimated him.
Andrea said on 16/Jun/16
Yeah, i know... After all, a listing on this site will never change celebrities' real heights :)
But you, you are infallible! ;) I'd be surprised if you overestimated someone you met in person by a big inch!
What i'm saying is that, if you see random photos on this site, they will NEVER look taller than their listing and not rarely noticeably shorter than their listing!
I know it's not easy to take an ideal photo at these events, also because you're not the photographer, but still there's quite a big number of celebrities you met that look half an inch and over under their listings! In those cases, the only thing you can do is to trust your estimate...
Editor Rob: there will be some, I think Tyson looks over 5ft 10 flat, but I don't think he actually is.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Jun/16
He looks similar as Luke Mitchell in Rob's photo. Probably would still edge him out though
Mark said on 16/Jun/16
This is definitely not 6'2.

He's standing completely straight and he's at best 6'1.

Why not just go with the fact that your estimation was off by 1 inch, instead of going against blatant photographic proof?
Judd said on 16/Jun/16
IMO he does look a strong 6'1 even with the shoes difference (0,8 cms) maybe 186 cms
Andrea said on 15/Jun/16
Well, then a good inch was stolen by someone... Maybe Big G is collecting all these missing inches to become 6'8 :)
Actually, there's more than one celebrity you took a photo with who can look a good inch shorter in the photo! I wonder if it's really so easy and frequent or maybe you're just a bit generous at times...
Well, in Colin Salmon's case, i can certainly believe he's near 6'4, even if the photo doesn't show it, because i've seen him in a few photos and scenes and he does look it!
As for this guy, seeing him with you and having a QUICK look at him with Luke (who seems a genuine 185), i would have said 185ish was possible... Again, i don't know him! So i'm gonna trust you and "accept" he's 6'2, even if he looks noway near it, HERE :)
Editor Rob: you or anybody else can perfectly believe nearer 6ft 1 than 2 if he looks that to you...nobody is infallible, they can over or under-estimate, although I do try my best not to get an honest estimate.

But I would have guessed nearer 6ft 2 than 1.
Eric said on 15/Jun/16
barely 185...with equal shoes he is barely 186 or strong 6'1
BorkLaser said on 15/Jun/16
Surprisingly he doesn't look 6'2" at all, comparing this picture with the one you have with Alberto Del Rio, Rob. He looks 185 cm. Perhaps you could add the height scale like you do in some other photos?
Aza said on 15/Jun/16
Looks close but not quite 74 inches listing.
c-mo said on 15/Jun/16
this type of 6'2 look is in the ideal range . there are many 6'2 guys who look rather lanky/goofy/uncoordinated and are too skinny etc. but this guy carries the height very well
Kyuss123 said on 15/Jun/16
6-1". Max
SAK said on 15/Jun/16
Looks 186/187cm
Andrea said on 15/Jun/16
What do you actually mean with that photo, Rob? He does look 184 at most, like i said... Plus 1/3 inch, 185ish! Do you mean that one inch went away with the photo? If that's the case, i can believe he's not much under 6'2! Did he look a good inch taller than the 184 challenger, without looking at his footwear?
I wonder why he also doesn't look much different than Luke in photos, sometimes actually shorter... Maybe cameras don't like him and make him appear 6'1 at most when he really is 6'2 :)
Editor Rob: I'm saying I expected him to look like his eyes were an inch above my hair, which is normally how a guy 187 range would look, but it didn't turn out like that.

Either I guessed him too high or a couple cm was lost in the photo...I really don't think I guessed him too high!
Andrea said on 15/Jun/16
He looks 183-184 here, add "about" a cm for shoe difference and he's more 184-185 than anywhere near 6'2!
Luke looks a good inch taller but again he has nearly an inch less than Brett, so they probably wouldn't be much different but still Luke looks a more solid 6'1 than this guy!
Unless the photographer was the same of Colin Salmon and managed to take away an inch from the photo, there's noway this guy is even close to 6'2!!!
berta said on 15/Jun/16
yeah good listing could be 187 but if he have lower shoes then i guess 188 is right
Johno said on 14/Jun/16
Something must not be telling by this picture because no way do i see 6'2.
Editor Rob: The photographers camera is on a tripod and about 5ft 7 high.
I set up a camera similar height (but a few feet further away) with roughly same focal length and me just over 187cm:
Click Here

I fully expected Brett to look as tall as that!

Also re: Andrea, you mentioned on Luke's page how he and dalton could look close in height and yes in photos I saw that too...

But in person Brett looked no shorter than Luke, before considering the swing in footwear was like 0.8 inch range.
Greg said on 14/Jun/16
that's my dream height right there, 6'2" is the perfect male height in my honest opinion.
TJE said on 14/Jun/16
6'1.5 would be better
the Slav said on 14/Jun/16
@Rob
Don't see more than 6'1.25-6'1.5 to be honest. 6'2 is a bit of a stretch
truth said on 14/Jun/16
Good listing.
Hypado said on 14/Jun/16
Brett Dalton's Height - 6ft 2in (188 cm)

Yes, a legit 6ft 2 in SHIELD tv series. Great Photo.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jun/16
hmmm I see a similar impression to Luke Mitchell here but unlike Luke who has more shoe than Rob, this guy has less. So he could still be 6ft2
Rollo Tomasi said on 14/Jun/16
Looks 6'1
CD said on 14/Jun/16
6ft 1.5 appears to be nearer the mark, he pretty much looks 5 inches taller than Rob and plus has a bit less footwear. His claim of 6ft 2 isn't a terrible one.
Andrea said on 14/Jun/16
Wow, you met Brett too then :)
I reconfirm what i said on Luke's page... He looks nowhere near 6'2! Unless something "strange" is going on in this picture, he doesn't look over 6'1!!! I mean, you can even make an argument for 184 range here! One of the shortest "6'2" guys ever!
Andrew M said on 30/Nov/14
Another perfect person! Scunner! What do these folk eat, growing up?
@ Rampage(-_-_-)Clover - I dunno about the suit, I think it makes him look a bit thin, which he doesn't on the show. And Chino-style turned up hems are unusual. Still, it no doubt costs a few bob!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Oct/14
I love that suit!

6ft2 is fair...tall guy
Yuppijaa said on 16/May/14
In Agents of SHIELD he looks like 6'3.
[Editor Rob: i'm sure he's shorter than j august richards]
Ilyathe2nd said on 27/Mar/14
On his March 24th 2014 appearance on Craig Ferguson Brett seemed even a little shorter than Craig. Maybe it's a footwear issue, but certainly not posture; Craig is slouching, Brett isn't. He comes in at 25:58 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkJTSHPUtwI Maybe Brett is 185-186? Or Craig is taller than the 187 he's listed as? Craig does seem to have bigger heels though.
