Rob, how tall do you think the Irish actress, Sarah Greene is? Click Here She appeared in the Cripple Of The Inishman with Daniel and is standing next to him on the right. Her agency lists her as 5'4. Here is another photo at a different angle. Click Here
[Editor Rob: 5ft 4 is quite optimistic, I'll add her, I'd go with more somewhere in 5ft 2.5 range than 5ft 4!]

Hello,I think Harry/Daniel is about Like 4"10 or 5"0",Because i am a 4"2" 10 year old that grows height pretty fast,Daniel is too short for his actual Age,He is 25+ and he is Really small,I see him in Comic-con and He's like Estimately 8 Inches taller than me,He is pretty small,I measured it using Matthew Pattrick/Game Theory's Way to measure People by pixels,So i think Daniel is about 4"8",Pretty much that's a good and Accurate Estimate,Daniel's Genes are just not fit to grow up to 6 feet,About maximum of 5"1"

@Greg (6'1")

I read that maths is not J.K. Rowling's strong suit (in her words), so perhaps that is the reason for the inconsistencies in the height of various characters.
Greg (6'1'') says on 13/Oct/14
I've always found Harry's fully-grown height to be a bit of a mystery. Emil 183 cm is right, Harry's father, James, is described as 'tall' throughout the series, and when Harry sees James via the Resurrection Stone towards the end of the seventh book, Harry is said to be the exact same height as his dad. What's strange is that Harry himself is not once referred to as tall, even in the latter books when he's presumably near or at his fully-grown height.

When Fred, George, and others drink the Polyjuice Potion early in the seventh book so that they will all turn into Harry in an attempt to thwart Voldemort and his Death Eaters, lest they attack the group while they're traveling to the Burrow, it is said that Fred and George had to 'shrink'; we can deduce from this that Fred and George were taller than Harry. So if Harry's tall, but Fred and George are taller than Harry, and Ron is described as taller than Fred and George, then god, how tall is Ron? The thing is, Ron is never described as very tall; Dean Smith, a fellow student is described as taller than him. And it's not like JK Rowling doesn't mention when a particular character is of imposing stature because both Dumbledore and Voldemort are described as very tall at one point or another.

Also, when Hermione transforms into Bellatrix Lestrange, she is described as taller than Harry. This adds to the case of Harry not being as tall as some may think.

The most compelling evidence, however, for Harry's height is when he transforms into the Ministry employee, Runcorn, who is described as 'over six feet tall', which seems to imply somewhere in the 6'1''-6'2'' range, and yet when Harry (as Runcorn) gets to his feet upon arrival at the Ministry, it is stated that 'there was a lot more of his body than he was accustomed to'. This makes it difficult to imagine a 6'0''+ Harry.
David F. says on 29/Sep/14
David Thewlis (Remus Lupin) Alfred Enoch (Dean Thomas)James and Oliver Phelps (twins)

All are exactly 6'3 (191cm) and Daniel Radcliffe 5'5 Lol
Emil 183 cm says on 22/Sep/14
Potter was describes "as tall as his dad" in the final book and his dad was always described as tall.
The character heights in the books would probably be something like this:
Harry Potter: 6'0-6'1
Ron Weasly: 6'4-6'6 - always described as very tall lol
Hermine: 5'5

@Steve I hear a lot that I look like Daniel Radcliffe, I need to cash in on those women seeking that look on a slightly taller guy...
cd says on 6/Sep/14
If I had to guess his height exactly I would say 5ft 4 and 7/8ths. Gut feeling I guess.
Parker says on 5/Sep/14
Same build and height as Michael J Fox
Voiceless Dental Fricative says on 5/Sep/14
He's long in need of a downgrade. He consistently looks 5'4.5. Can look 5'4 flat on occasion.

"According to most of the people in the comments section the woman in the relationship should not be taller than the man!"

Every time there's an article about Daniel Radcliffe on that site the comments are always the same 'Good looking guy, shame he's so short'. I wouldn't worry about it too much, it's just women being shallow.
Magic says on 28/Aug/14
He claims his height?I read a interview where he said of being 5'7"-5'8".
Many People think he is 5'6
Here a photo with Tom Felton(174 cm with Rob):Click Here
Rob should he be 5'5 or 5'6?
[Editor Rob: 5ft 5 is his maximum I believe, I would say if he measured a little bit shy of it, there wouldn't be much of a surprise.]
Mehran says on 15/Aug/14
He is a good guy and 165cm is enogh and its normal
Surprised short says on 15/Aug/14
Potter in book is tall Radcliffe actor is very short 5'2-5'4 good camera angles in movies
Sam says on 7/Aug/14
He could be rounding up to 5'5"...at least he seems to accept his posture for what it is and never appears to wear lifts unlike a lot of leading actors.
tony says on 30/Jul/14
160 would be fair enough.
Firas says on 29/Jul/14
So how tall is his girlfriend, Erin Darke?

Click Here

Here she looks quite a bit taller but I think she's wearing heels. According to most of the people in the comments section the woman in the relationship should not be taller than the man!
Realist says on 25/Jun/14
Definitely taller than Josh Hutcherson. Spot on Rob, Hutcherson is more 163-64. This guy is 165 so a 5'5 listing is good enough. He is closer to Al Pacino in height, Hutcherson is the same as Hoffman. This guy is a fine actor.
mande2013 says on 11/Jun/14
Unless you're ultra short, like say 5'2, I'd say height's a bit of a non-issue if a guy's ultra good-looking. If you're as good-looking as James Dean (I'm not necessarily implying Dan is that good looking)girls don't really care whether you're 167 or 176, and in fact many taller females may fear he'll find her too tall for him, the same way short men think 'oh shux' when a woman they find attractive is taller than him. Likewise, whether Salma Hayek is 5'2 or 5'8 isn't really important. Either way, a man with a 9+ face doesn't need to be six feet. It's the average looking guys who benefit from being above average height.
tom says on 26/May/14
I think he's closer to 5'4" - if you look at him compared to somebody like Aziz Ansari, who's a genuine 5'5"-5'6" guy, and I doubt he's that tall.
Mike T says on 15/May/14
5'3" MAX. Dane Deehan towers over him and he's about 5'8".
Bhati says on 13/May/14
I think his real height is 5'4".......
Giantss says on 6/May/14
Tall men look awkward jumping out of buildings or cars...........thank God for those cute short guys! :)
Cerium says on 4/May/14
I wouldn't be surprised if he was a little under 5'5, comparing him to 6'5ish John Larroquette

Click Here

Seems about a foot difference, maybe a little more.
jamieorr4 says on 25/Apr/14
i think hes more like 5ft3 or 5ft4 i don't know why but i wouldn't be surprise if he was 5ft2
jamieorr4 says on 9/Apr/14
Greenbolt 5ft11 is average or silght above average but not tall im that height i feel average
mande2013 says on 30/Mar/14
At least to me, it makes sense that the height distribution of leading men should mirror that of the general male population, most of them being 5'9/5'10 with a few 5'5 and 6'4 guys thrown in for good measure.
mande2013 says on 30/Mar/14
As for 5'5 precluding leading roles, Pacino, Hoffman, and Ladd would all like to have a word with you.
avi says on 27/Mar/14
@miko says on 10/Dec/13
He didn't need to be tall to portray Harry Potter, although it will be tough for him to ever get any huge lead roles at 5'5 or just under. Michael J Fox did ok for himself at 5'4 but Radcliffe doesn't have the star quality of Fox.

hes okay but in the book Harry Potter is probably 5'9-5'10 at least by 17 and may finish at close to 5'11. it would have been nice for a 5'7-5'9 Potter and 5'10-5'11 Ron. but it doesnt really matter i enjoyed most the movies.
Realist says on 8/Feb/14
5'5 since Order of Phoenix. Miko u rock. Up top.
BRUTAL says on 31/Dec/13
@ Miko

You're right. 5ft 5 Al Pacino and 5ft 4 Dustin Hoffman have had terribly difficult careers in crap roles.
Injo says on 29/Dec/13
As a boy his height is really shot, but he is still my favourite actor. and i am a big fan of him.....
Angel says on 16/Dec/13
He's definitely around 1.65m. I'm like 1.74m and there's no way he could be "almost" as tall as me as some people are claiming he's 1.72m.

divincodino92 says on 9/Dec/13
159-160! Like Emma Watson! Katie Holmes towered him
Emily says on 9/Dec/13
Dane Dehaan is not 5'8. get your facts straight
mande2013 says on 6/Dec/13
Under 5'5 barefoot is certainly feasible, but I sincerely doubt Daniel struggles with something as low as 5'4 flat.
Voiceless Dental Fricative says on 1/Dec/13
Getting towered by 5'8 Dane Dehaan. Click Here

There's footwear advantage, but still.

Rob: downgrade time.
Hola says on 27/Nov/13
Rob: Any chance he's closer to 5'4 than 5'5? He really does look shorter than someone like 5'5 Josh Hutcherson.

@ James Crowley Meridius

Cosmetical Limb lengthening is very much a newer procedure, and one that is not only painful, but risky. I strongly suggest you do not read reviews of the surgery from one of the forums specifically dedicated to it, they profit off of doctor's referals and are heavily moderated, and even then - there stories of people who consider themself 'paralyzed' on there.
marla singer says on 22/Nov/13
Looks a lot shorter with 5'8" Dane DeHaan here Click Here either Daniel is 5'5" and Dane 5'10", or Daniel 5'4" and Dane 5'9"!
ben says on 21/Nov/13
not bad enough for a famous personality
James Crowley Meridius says on 19/Nov/13
Rob i never thought he was 5ft 5in i thought he was at least 5ft 9in since he has loads of money he should get leg lengthing surgery that will increase his height by 4 inches.
[Editor Rob: I think he's probably happy enough with his career - he's done very well being 5ft 5...and as he says he can blend more into public at times and take longer for people to spot him.]
James Crowley Meridius says on 19/Nov/13
@white guy at white guy 5ft 5in is short for a white guy nowhere near average height average height for a white guy is between 5ft 9in and 5ft 10in 5ft 5in is well below average 5ft 7in and 5ft 8in are below average height for a white guy which is not too bad.
Lurk says on 18/Nov/13
I just saw a clip of him on the Graham Norton show. He was towered over by 5'10-listed Cuba Gooding Jr. Not sure he's even 5'5.
Matrix says on 11/Nov/13
And in this picture he looks taller than 5 foot 8 john krokidas Click Here
5\\\'5.5 says on 21/Sep/13
Looks my height proportionally. I can look 5'4 and even as low as 5'3 at times due to slouching and general bad posture as well. I don't think his 05' claim of 5'5.5 is a stretch (no pun intended). He could wear lifts if he cared, I think the fact that he has been open about his lack of stature proves that he does not care much. I don't think he's in the habit of lying.
Kay says on 9/Sep/13
@Carlos: You're joking, right? There is NO way on God's green earth that Daniel Radcliffe is 6'2. You're either mistaken about your height or that wasn't Radcliffe that you met because the guy is VERY short. Look at this pic and tell me that man is 6'2. Sorry, I'm not trying to be mean, but if he's 2 inches taller than you, that makes you 5'3, which is incredibly short for a man.

oops. I forgot the link. Sorry for the double post.

The Mighty Chandoc says on 8/Sep/13
Ratcliffe's publicity height of 165cm (5ft 5in) is totally fake. He's around 5ft 2in. Not much use in a fight.
Will says on 8/Sep/13
He looks comparable to Emma Watson. 5'5 sounds right. Lol at the person claiming 6'2.
Carlos says on 10/Aug/13
Daniel Radcliffe is 6'2.

I met him at a convention in London, and he was a good two inches taller than me. Plus he was wearing Birkenstocks and I was wearing cowboy boots. Me theory is that he has very bad posture and likes to crouch down for photos
prince says on 5/Aug/13
as im 5'8 he was short by about 2 or 3 inches as seen
Vivi says on 31/Jul/13
Wow, after seeing those pics with Kstew he's shorter than what I thought... 5'4.5" max! Isn't she in flats in those pics? Those dress shoes have a pretty big heel that he's wearing! I'd say he's 5'4" since she's slouching...Maybe 5'4.5"...maybe.
marla singer says on 15/Jul/13
@Arch, he does look about 1 inch taller than her indeed - but in 1" shoes!
Arch Stanton says on 14/Jul/13
Mmm but he's in dress shoes with footwear advantage. I think at some point Rob will lower him to 5'4.5" if he sees something more conclusive, and I'd agree with a 164cm listing. Rob do you have a feeling that he wouldn't even hit 5'5" if you measured him on a stat? I think he'd come up somewhere around the 164 mark.
Arch Stanton says on 14/Jul/13
He does actually look just about 5 ft 5 next to Kristen Stewart but I think he'd measure 164 at some point in the day.
cd says on 12/Jul/13
I agree I'm starting to doubt if there's any chance Daniel is a full 5'5". I reckon he could measure a flat 5'5 straight out of bed then maybe 5'4 1/4 to 5'4 1/2" depending on how much he loses.
marla singer says on 11/Jul/13
Even in 1" dress shoes, Daniel struggles to appear taller than a slouching 163cm Kristen Stewart who was in completely flat ballerina-shoes ( Click Here ) : Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here barefoot, they're very likely to be the same height
cd says on 10/Jul/13
Anyone else think he has quite short legs? He seems taller in the torso than the 'ideal' man's proportions (not as extreme as Michael Phelps obviously). Maybe it's just the suits he wears though? Lol, anyway I could argue as low as 5'4.25" (163 cm) up to 5'5" (165 cm).
FATTYBUMBUM says on 8/Jul/13
Fkin midget
Emil says on 12/Jun/13
He seems like a nice guy but I seriously don't think he's a mm over 5'4
n1st says on 8/May/13
He looks 5'4 - 5'4.5
Laur says on 5/May/13
I meet him 2 weeks ago he looks 5.3
Irish guy says on 5/May/13
Rob there is plenty of evidence that he's 5'4.5" barefoot so change his height please.
K says on 28/Apr/13
I bet he's 5'4.5" and was measured with shoes on and that's why he claims 5'5.5". I don't even think he reaches 5'5". Funny how Harry Potter was so tall in the books and how much shorter Daniel turned out to be. But I'm so glad they were able to keep the whole cast the same during HP (except DUmbledore)!
marla singer says on 23/Apr/13
Here he stands shorter than 5'1" listed Holliday Grainger, who's in heels (about 2" more footwear than him). Holliday looks a bit taller than Christina Ricci who is 5'0.25" so 5'1-5'1.5" for her is truthful, but Daniel honestly looks no more than 5'4" Click Here
Arch Stanton says on 22/Apr/13
5'5"-5'5.5" in shoes.
Arch Stanton says on 22/Apr/13
That's because he isn't 5 ft 5 SAK, I mean just look at that Daniel Day Lewis photo.
Arch Stanton says on 22/Apr/13
Rob, he looks shorter than 5'5

Click Here

Looks same height as M J Fox.
SAK says on 16/Apr/13
Click Here

Radcliffe listed as 165/5f5 and Lewis as 186/6f1.25. The difference of 8.25" looks huge.
marla singer says on 23/Mar/13
Bieber easily looks 2 big inches taller than Daniel if you see them with Pablo Motos. You'd suppose that either JB is 1.70-71 or Daniel 1.62-63 but don't forget that Bieber wears lifts so I don't think JB is over 1.5in taller than him.
Arch Stanton says on 21/Mar/13
Rob, is the 5'4.5" camp located in the field outside Hogwarts? 5'5" is the tallest he could possibly be....
[Editor Rob: his range is likely 5ft 4.5-5, somewhere in that. Above that, well, that would require the use of some magic.]
The Fan says on 11/Mar/13
Rob, if you had to pick....would you say he's taller or shorter than Emma Watson?
Pedro says on 8/Mar/13
On another site he is being listed at 5ft 5.25in. Maybe this is a realistic middle ground concerning his both statements in 2005 and 2007.
[Editor Rob: I'm in the camp that there's more chance he's under 5ft 5 than over.]
Tom says on 27/Feb/13
I've seen him in numerous award shows & events, he's always been shorter than even those short guys. Seems like he's stuck with young Harry Porter's height. No more than 5'4, bare feet.
Arch Stanton says on 22/Feb/13
Nah, he's shorter than Pablo Motos Rob, have you seen that guy next to Justin Bieber? Not a chance Bieber is only an inch taller than Radcliffe. I think he's 5'4' range, needs a downgrade to 5'4.5" at least.
Divi says on 18/Feb/13
I thought 5.5 is the perfect height, he's always cute baby
white guy says on 18/Feb/13
5'5 .. the average height for white guy
Mikey T says on 28/Jan/13
lol filmbug thought that he was 5'8"

5'4.5", anybody agree?

truth says on 16/Dec/12
Ross is a good 6ft1 like 186cm, which makes Radcliffe 164cm or 5ft4.5. 5ft5.5 (166cm) is probably his morning height.
Amelia says on 22/Oct/12
5'5 is OK!
topas says on 5/Oct/12
So what if he's 5'5? 5'5 is as good as of an average you can get. He's got way more money than you do and OH! Harry Potter really is 5'5 and not in the 5'11 books.

Women stop the heightism, you lot wear heels just to be average.
Greenbolt says on 2/Oct/12
Danimal says on 17/Sep/12
Harry Potter at 5'9"???????


Fully-grown, Harry Potter is actually tall because his father, James, is described as tall and Harry is described as exactly the same height as James towards the end of the seventh book. So Harry is 5'11'' at least.
Sunny O_o says on 12/Sep/12
Is doesn't matter to me I respect him as he is . . n he is smart n handsome man I M big fan of his n he will be always harry potter for me
Varun says on 5/Sep/12
Yaa... I does not matter how tall or how small he is.. Matter dat what he achieved in such z little age.. And am a big big big fan of Daniel... Respect
Joe says on 26/Jul/12
Even small ones can have milions and milions of dollars... Yhea... I agree he's around 5ft5(165cm).. maby closer to 163-164cm, but nobody can say that he hasn't risen high on life. :-)
That5\'9Dude says on 14/Feb/12
Damn, he's only 5'5!? That's a huge shocker. I thought he was at least 5'9!
Voiceless Dental Fricative says on 6/Feb/12
He looks 4 inches shorter than Tom Felton, which is the best evidence he's 5'4.5ish.
Silent d says on 29/Jan/12
I got towered on the jonathon ross show. Some people say jonathon ross is 180cm. That'll make daniel 158cm. People make me laugh sometimes. Daniel is 165cm.
