How tall is Gwendoline Christie ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Gwendoline Christie's height is 6ft 3in (191 cm)

British actress best known for playing Brienne of Tarth in HBO's Game of Thrones. Her agency lists her as standing 6ft 3 and with a weight of 168 pounds, a height which she herself has said several times: "I'm certainly really rather tall at 6 foot 3, and I've been this way since I was 14, but for years, women who are even 5 foot 10 have come up to me in the street and said, 'Oh, it's so nice to see a woman who is taller than me. I've always felt like a giant.'". She also said in Sfx: "many people can't see past my height, and it's been very difficult to be considered for parts simply because I'm six foot three." and in a 2008 Independent newspaper interview stated "I am 6'3" or 6'4 1/2", depending on when you measure me. My parents treated my height as a wonderful thing to be celebrated, but also normal. I love being tall as you literally look at life from a different perspective: it's easier to breeze through life's turmoils.". This photo is by Marco/Starfury, we had pretty similar footwear, under an inch.

Rob, it would be the same height of Gabrielle Reece?
[Editor Rob: might be very close.

mike 1.82 says on 17/Apr/15
i can see 20 cm difference. she look 193 next to rob
Height183 says on 16/Apr/15
Every bit of 6'3''
Amaze says on 12/Apr/15
@184.3cm 6'4.5 would be a shoe listing as shoes add 3cm so 194cm 6'4.5 some people take shoe listings but most of the time its barefoot and thats your true height and thats why she's 6'3/191cm

She's a very very tall girl. Giant and pretty

I need to start watching game of thrones
184.3cm says on 4/Apr/15
Even a woman this tall has to exaggerate..6'4.5" how did she ever get that number? Looks 190-191 in the pic so good listing.
Sam says on 2/Apr/15
Yeah, guess I should be more understanding since I can lose a full inch myself as well (generally 0.75-1 inch), but to lose double the average (0.75) seems very unlikely, but more so likely for a very tall lady like Gwendoline Christie.
Tunman says on 25/Mar/15
@John and Sam
maybe 6'4.25 out of bed, and she preferred to say 6'4.5?losing 1.25 or 3 cm is much more possible in my opinion.
I think it's more in relation to water in the discs rather than spine length.Jenny loses generally a full inch while Rob,being about the same height loses only 0.6-0.7"
John says on 21/Mar/15
@ Sam

I agree on this. If she was more 6'3 1/2" range, I could believe it, but she looks more 190-191cm range, so out of bed more 192-193 seems more likely. Everybody's different but I'm a pretty active person and I drop around 2cm from waking up to sleeping. I mean, I doubt Brenden Fraser is 194 out of bed. Again, maybe Christie is unique and has a long upper body or something. Just speaking for myself, being a similar height never even gain/drop a full inch let alone 1.5.
Sam says on 18/Mar/15
I wonder why she loses 1.5 inches, because most 6'3 men only lose about an inch, if not less, and any more would probably be pretty uncommon. Is the female form not supposed to withstand the same stature without losing so much? 6'4 out of bed wouldn't surprise me, but 6'4.5 is a stretch.
[Editor Rob: doesn't user Maximus on here say he goes from 176cm to 173cm or thereabouts, that's 3cm loss, 4cm for a 6ft 3-4 range person doesn't seem impossible.]
joe 193cm night says on 14/Mar/15
beautiful woman
joe 193cm night says on 12/Mar/15
of course not I think somewhere around 6'3.5 or 6'3.75 out of bed
Mathew says on 11/Mar/15
I highly doubt she measures 6'4.5" in the morning.
joe 193cm night says on 10/Mar/15
the scene with the character's Nikolaj Coster Waldau-6'1.5 (187cm) it seems 6'3 flat
Andrea[ITA] says on 7/Mar/15
Jason actually looks taller than her in his picture... Still he doesn't look a full 6'4 with Rob but he's indeed taller than Gwendoline! Not that much, though...
pablo77bar says on 7/Mar/15
Rob do you thin a 6ft 0.75 guy next to her It's ridiculous ?
[Editor Rob:
No height is 'ridiculous', as soon as we start thinking one height is better than another, we start to become Heightist!
]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Mar/15
Rob, I just saw you're picture w/h Jason Momoa right next to this one and I see no noticeable difference.

Are you sure that guy is 6ft4?
[Editor Rob: well I'm closer to Jason's mouth and around her nose, so I'm not sure how that is equal.

The lense with Gwendoline is slightly different and is more vertically elongating the image at the end of the lense (see the same effect with Lars who looks shorter in person than Momoa).]
b-mint1994 says on 5/Mar/15
Is she the tallest girl you've taken a picture with Rob?
[Editor Rob: yeah.]
Chris says on 5/Mar/15
Shes a tall women on the face of the earth
ricky says on 5/Mar/15
Towering to say the least.
Judd says on 3/Mar/15
honest 6'3" girl
John says on 3/Mar/15
@ Rob

Oh, I'm sure she's a strong 6ft 3ins here, I just meant that out of bed 6'4 1/2" is a lot more than I would have thought somebody could drop, unless there were extremely tall, as in 7'0" or so. 4 cm is a lot to gain/lose, maybe she's just rounding up a little.....we've all done it! : )
[Editor Rob: 1.5 isn't impossible. It's a huge amount to lose, but some people have said on here they have lost over an inch, but it's not as common as those who lose around 0.75ish.]
John says on 2/Mar/15
She certainly looks 6'3", I'd say. Although her suggestion of losing 1.5 inches throughout the day is hard for me to believe. Everyone is different but at a similar height as a guy I don't think I lose more than maybe 2cm from early morning to late night, and sometimes less depending of the kind of activity I do. I'll have to check that out as an experiment to be sure, does anybody else not drop much?
[Editor Rob: this photo won't be at her low height, I think it was roughly 11-11.30, I was up about 6.30 myself.]
teej says on 16/Feb/15
Nice to see tall women embracing their height. Legit 6'3
Tunman says on 4/Feb/15
"I'm 6'3 or 6'4 1/2 depending on when you measure me".losing 1.5"?strongly doubt it,that's more likely for guys like Nairn or O'neal,much taller and much heavier.Though she may lose a full inch.
kreyzig 6ft 3 says on 17/Jan/15
@alexMahone Its not about my height.I have seen women taller than me.This doesn't mean that I would make those lady less than 6ft3..you are trying to act smart here.Whatever height they have got its their luck..I don't care honestly...it just my opinion on Gwendoline that she is 6ft 2.5.Brother I hope it clears the confusion that you have..
Tunman says on 16/Jan/15
Actually Rob thinks she's in the 6'3 zone so it must be around that.Well knowing that Rob I would have thought more chances for her to be few mms under rather than over the mark but nothing more than 2-3 mms if anything.
AlexMahone says on 15/Jan/15
6'2.5 means 189cm. 188 or 189cm no matter.... The main point is that Christie's height do be under your height. So let it be my friend. :)
kreyzig 6ft 3 says on 15/Jan/15
@alexMahone Please read my post of 8th dec carefully below few comments.I never said 6ft 2.I said she is 6ft 2.5 at her lowest measurement as compared to 6ft 3.Lolz our argument becomes baseless.
AlexMahone says on 11/Jan/15
kreyzig 6ft 3 --> OK, you fully misunderstand me. First, you make a mistake because you're compare is wrong. You said before that the height difference between you and your 5ft 8.5 girlfriend looks similar and that's why Christie is only 6'2. So you compare you and you're girlfriend height and the compared result compares to the other comparison (Rob's picture) is not the best way to take a precise result. For exammple I'm 6'3.25 (191cm) as well and my girlfriend is 5'8 (174cm). I sent hier a photo to Rob and he said I'm probably about 193cm. But my girlfriend wores Converse and I wore almost 3cm boots.
Second, there are ZERO photo evidences that Christie is only 6'2-6'2.5. Brandon Routh is not 6'3, he cheats with his hair only. Routh smaller than The Kid (Height Challange), who is 191-192cm with barefoot. I'm glad that you recognize 1-2cm height difference from a photo but I trust Rob's eyes. He met Christie and Routh personally. Some men can hardly tolerate if a woman taller than he is. If Christie wears high heels I'm a small man. :)) Peace.
[Editor Rob: I said at first when I seen gwendoline I thought she might have been more 190, but seeing her a few more times and especially when in the photo room with many people I think she looked to be a proper 6ft 3. I wouldn't put routh less than about 189 range though.]
kreyzig 6ft 3 says on 1/Jan/15
@alexmahone I am sorry alexmahone you got me wrong.If she is 6ft 3 then so is brandon routh. Go and check that page.The difference is the same.Only thing she has a very big forehead.I have seen women taller than me so your statement is void.All I am saying is that its not often I see them.Yes if i am around WNBA players,there will be a few of my height and taller than me as well.But in general places like mall,universities,market places it's rare to see a women over 6ft 2in.If you see women over 6ft everyday around you,great..i want to know the name of this place.
AlexMahone says on 23/Dec/14
I'm sorry kreyzig, maybe this is bad news for you but this lady is a genuine 6'3 (191cm). Not 6'2.5-6'2.75, etc. Seems to me you can't imagine or belive that woman can be exist over 6'3. If you see the picture with Rob, Gwen looks more genuine 191cm than other celebs listed on this site.

@littlesue
yeah,but sometimes even genes fail to explain height
One family I know has the following heights
mother 5'3
Father +/-5'7
Daughter 5'8-8.25
Son(at 16)6'1.5
Your sons are quite tall even assuming they got their father average genes.Maybe the reason could be better food quality or that one of you didn't reach his full potential,unlike your sons.
Moke says on 10/Dec/14
Wow, legit 6'3'' without a doubt.
kreyzig 6ft 3 says on 8/Dec/14
She may be slightly shorter than 6ft 3. The height difference between me and my 5ft 8.5 girlfriend looks similar to this pic.Since rob is 5ft 8 so 6ft 2.5 makes sense for her.I have rarely seen women taller than me.
littlesue says on 2/Dec/14
Depends on Dad's height too, I'm barely 4ft 11 but my sons are 5ft 9 and 5ft 10, there dDad was 5ft 9 so they followed his average height genes.
176,2Tunman says on 1/Dec/14
Well,actually what is more surprising is when a short person produces a tall or very tall son or girl.
I know a woman who is a strong foot shorter than me aged 65-70,guess what her daughter is around 5'11-11.5 and her grand daughter who is 8 is already taller than her I guess she will end up somewhere between 5'8 and 6',will be interesting to see next 5-6 years.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 11/Nov/14
5ft11 on the nose father and 5ft6ish mother....solid average
littlesue says on 8/Nov/14
Ireland Baldwin's parents are both fairly tall for their age range so a tall daughter not un possible.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 7/Nov/14
Yeah...but it's not always a genetic lottery. Look at Ireland Baldwin. Both of her folks are pretty average.
Arch Stanton says on 7/Nov/14
Lindsey Davenport who's not far off 6'3" said her dad is 6 ft 8 and mother 5 ft 10 I think.
Arch Stanton says on 7/Nov/14
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Nov/14
A 6ft7-6ft8 father and a 5ft11-6ft mother could produce something like this.

Parents that height produced a 6 ft 9 girl! A 6'7" father and tallish mother should do it.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 6/Nov/14

She has a bigger forehead than you Rob. Does that mean she has a bigger brain than you?
[Editor Rob: her forehead is quite average sized up close. There is some camera distortion towards the ends of the lens.]
Jon says on 18/Oct/14
What would you say her head size is Rob? Also, do tall people generally have larger heads than average height people?
[Editor Rob: it's hard to say, in person I would say it looked perfectly normal for her height...although I think this lens the photographer uses can stretch the image at the top a little (similarly with lars mikkelsen who gets a similar extra stretch with the picture).]

@Nam
7.9million US women are 6' or taller? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
there won't be more than 1 million women over 6'worldwide probably less let alone 7.9 in US.I wonder where you got this nonsense.
@Danimal
yeah,in my country even 6' will be very rare for a woman although sometimes in rallies for exp you will forcibly see 6' or even 6'1+,on average days it's quite rare but still possible in some wealthy areas.
mike says on 9/Oct/14
189 at worst 6ft 3 is fair she could also looks 6ft 4 in Game of Thrones.
Nam says on 1/Oct/14
On average men are 1.08x (+/-.01) taller than women. The average U.S. male is 5'10" and woman is 5'4.5". Assuming a normal distribution of height (a good assumption) then ~1% (which represents 3 standard deviations of distribution with a 99% level of confidence) of women are either three standard deviations taller or shorter than average. The standard deviation of U.S. women's height is 2.5" so that means 15.8 million women are either taller than or shorter than 5'4.5" by 7.5". As the distribution is normal then half or 7.9 million U.S. women are 6ft or taller. With the average man being 5'10" that means there are a lot of taller women out there thank god!

176,2Tunman says on 5/Sep/14
When I travelled to U.S I saw a decent number of girls between 6'1 and 6'3 with the tallest being possibly 6'4.25
although some women could be 200-210cm, 6'4 range definitely seems the limit that women can (normally) reach,it coincides with 6'9-10 for men,over these respective ranges the persons will generally have grown more than expected in 99% of the cases.

There was a girl in a high school basketball team in my town that was 6'5". The tallest women I usually see walking around are maybe 6'0"-6'1" (plus heels for some). There are a lot more 5'10"+ women though than ever before imo.

176,2Tunman says on 5/Sep/14
Should also add that Gwendoline is the kind of woman who looks very attractive at 6'3 somehow like Gaby Reece.A good number of the 6'3 will have that kind of powerful build which makes them look even bigger.Despite being beautiful many 6'3 at 220 or 230Lbs will appear too big for most men.

Here with the other ladies of GOT and maybe 7 inches or so taller than Sophie Turner...I've got say, for my personal taste, she looks pretty attractive as her hair grows out, certainly much more so than the show would lead to believe.

Her character in GoT is supposed to be rather unattractive in traditional terms. In the books, she's described as even less unattractive than in the show. Hence her sarcastic natured nickname, Brienne the Beauty. But yeah, the actress is actually quite pretty in real life. Just shows the makeup crew does a good job.

She's taller than every woman combined

A 6'2.5 father and 5 ft 11 would 99.999% of the time would not produce a 7 ft 2 son unless he has acromegaly! As you say, you'd have expected 6'5" or 6'6" but 7'2??? I'd guess his father or mother probably had some siblings over 6 ft 6. His limbs are crazily long, it must come from somewhere.
176,2Tunman says on 10/Jul/14
6'7-11 are kind of limits for women,still possible heights due to tall genes.
Many basketball players are above 6'7:feenstra 202,stepanova 202,griner 203,taylor 203,semenova 210.Probably surprising heights but not forcibly abnormal in view of parents,grandparents.
Kareem's father was 189 and mother 180,you would expect something like 195-200 for him instead of 217 but his tall genes can explain it all.

Lindsay Davenport says here that her dad is 6 ft 8 and mother 5 ft 10, so she's lucky she is only 6'2.5-6'3" rather than 6'9"! Any girl who gets that big naturally almost always has an extremely tall father. In Gabrielle Reece's case though I think it was her mother who was 6'2" and father who was only 5'10.
Arch Stanton says on 9/Jul/14
I was watching Wimbledon the other day and I muttered "good grief" out loud when Lindsay Davenport stood next to to Sue Barker and Martina Navralatavova. I mean Martina is quite tall for a woman but Lindsay really towered both of them and looked twice as broad too. She looked about this in comparison but might have had footwear advantage. I think she'd probably measure 6'2" range if measured barefoot though.
Arch Stanton says on 9/Jul/14
Remember that 6'9 girl I posted a link to a while back had a 6 ft 7 father and a 6' mother or something so it's always possible. 6'3" is borderline giantess for a woman, like 6'8-6'9" for a guy being borderline giant, but 6'9" as you say is a true giantess! That's just crazy!
Arch Stanton says on 7/Jul/14
6 ft at 9 and 6 ft 9 by 13!!! I'd guess her mother was probably 6 ft 2 or 3 too or something.
[Editor Rob: I don't think by what she said because the guy asking the question asked and she said not really but then said her dad was 6ft 7.]
176,2Tunman says on 6/Jul/14
@Arch
Check those names,it's even more impressive
Jessica Pardoe:6'9 (father 6'7 and mother 6')
Marvadene Anderson:6'11 or 6'11.5 (father 6'5)
Margo Dydek:7'2 (father 6'7 mother 6'3)former BB player, died in 2011.
Whether the heights are true or exagerated I have no idea but I'm assuming girls that tall wouldn't lie,perhaps sometimes measured in the morning or rounding up but no more.
Actually most women that tall (they are probably less than 500 over 6'9 worldwide) have growth problems.But sometimes it's rather a combination of tall parents and tall genes that could bring them that high.
I met a 7' woman(nothing under 210 for sure)few years ago.To this day I never met anyone taller even men.I'm almost sure she had growth problems as her face was really marked.
Arch Stanton says on 5/Jul/14
I guess sometimes very tall genes combined can often wildly exaggerate themselves. Yao Ming's parents are 6 ft 7 and 6 ft 3 and Neil Fingleton's tallest siblings are 6 ft 8 or 10 or something. Both well over 7 ft 3. That basketball player pictured with Laird Hamilton too his dad the tennis layer was only 6 ft 4 and mother about 5 ft 8 or something. He looks easily 6 ft 10 and close to 7 ft.
iyolo says on 21/Jun/14
He had about 1.5-2.5 inches on her constantly-maybe she had higher footwear.Nevertheless,with makeup she is fetching.... :)
The Horse of FUNK says on 17/Jun/14
During her scene with the The Hound, she actually held her own surprisingly well. No, I don't mean the actual fighting, but compared to Rob McCory, or whatever his name is, they didn't look that far apart.
Crash says on 16/Jun/14
She still looks feminine even at her height, that's very rare. I am very "impressed" for lack of a better word.

In most photos she really looks minimum 6'5"!!

Click Here Looks 6'5"-6'6 there too. I suppose in heels she'd be that but it does give the illusion of making her legit seem that tall.

Rob in fairness you don't look too bad in comparison to her here. I mean check out photos like Click Here She looks like 6 ft 8 there!

The Game of Thrones cast is like a who's who of very tall actors in the acting world!! I'd hate to be the guy who does the payroll on that show LOL!! Looks a solid 6'3" here, 192 is possible actually but I think 191 is a good shout.

Even considering that she's wearing 3 inch heels, Christie looks like she'd be at least an inch taller than Charles Dance in pictures together.

flats or heels? im 6ft 2 so dont know if id like her as a girlfriend,,,oh what am i saying lol
Alex 6'0 says on 23/Apr/14
Rob, so usually the bottom of someone's nose is 7 inches assuming their head is normal length? That's also taking into account their eye level is 4.5. I remember the picture you had on here of how to measure a celebs height showing how many inches on their head from eye level to nose to mouth to chin
[Editor Rob: the nearer 6ft 3 they are the more chance they might have a little bigger head than your 5ft 9 man, so their nose could be near 7 inches...but in some people it would still be 6.5 or if a tall person with small head and small nose it could be barely 6!

This guy is good example, claims 191 and looks a decent 6ft 3er in person.]
Alex 6'0 says on 22/Apr/14
Rob, her head looks less than the average 9.5 inches I think. That's why you come up to her lower than you would someone 6'3 with a longer head.
[Editor Rob: if I am at the nose of someone usually they can be close to 6ft 3, but depending on photographer and camera I could be above or below that range quite easily.]
chris says on 21/Apr/14
Definitely a legit 6'3 and not a centimeter less. She's a woman, so there's no chance she's overstating her height.
person says on 20/Apr/14
she is huge
avi says on 18/Apr/14
Taller women are much more common nowadays even men. But 6'1+ is still very uncommon for a woman. Even 6'4 -6'5 men are now that common though if you're out shopping you'll see a good amount of 6'1.5-6'3 guys. And occasionally that one 6'4-6'6 range guy.
Lillo thomas says on 16/Apr/14
Nah . She is a legit 6'3 . She is looking more 6'3 than many guys rob listed at 6'3 in this site.
Sam says on 16/Apr/14
Her dress here unfortunately, with her stature and build, reminds me of Cesare from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari above the legs.
ud191cm says on 14/Apr/14
Hey rob,
Her being equivalent to a 6'9 man is hilarious I think. Coz afterall she passes through the same doorways as 6'3 men do, ride in the same car etc. The only factor is when it comes to dresses, rest everything is same. Anyways If I stand facing her, I don't think her eyeleves would match mine, coz you come to the tip of her nose, whilst 173cm reaches around the middle of my mouth, a 5'9 guy reaches till the little under my nosetip. Bottomline, I think at worst she is 189.5cms tall.
176,2Tunman says on 12/Apr/14
That's what I thought,her head is actually smaller in reality.Rory's pic is an excellent proof,one would easily think his head is 11.5-12"which isn't even close.You said "Around 6'3",so 190 or 6'2.75" could be bang on in my opinion.Gabby Reece for instance,is an undisputable 6'3,she looked taller than Laird Hamilton in all pics I saw of them,although he's supposedly only 0.5" shorter.I think Gwendoline although very close to Sorbo would turn a hair shorter.6'3 is okay but you agree more likely 190 than 91?
[Editor Rob: it is harder to tell, I managed to see her beside a strong 6ft 2 friend and I didn't think she definitely looked right around that 6ft 3 zone.]
176,2Tunman says on 11/Apr/14
Rob,considering her head is still smaller than most 6'3 men heads would you say she's rather a weak 6'3? I'm not completely sure she would hit the mark,189,5-90 is still possible.
I'm surprised by the comments down,I mean it's not very rare to see a woman at that mark,within the last 5 years I met a good 18 women (10 Tunisians and 8 tourists) at that mark or over(15 of them wouldn't dip a mm under 6'3).
[Editor Rob: I was in the lobby of this event on the Friday when I saw her and thought at first she looked 189-90 range then at opening ceremony she looked on stage 6ft 3 and the next day next day from seeing her up close a few times and with other people, I think she'd measure right around that 6ft 3 mark. Her eyelevel is tilted down a fraction in most photos I watched...I think her head actually looks bigger in this photo than it is in person...this shot is similar to Lars Mikkelsen - the taller person's head is close to top of frame and there is a bit of extension distortion because of the wide angle lense and closeness of the photographer...in 2 other pics that day (josef altin/esme bianco) in the full shot (I cropped them smaller size) there is about 9-10 inches above our heads, so not as much distortion...

for interest sake, here is a more pronounced example of the same photographer's wide angle and close shooting with Rory McCann (in my opinion he shoots a bit too close), you end up with extension distortion with Rory's head looking a couple more inches bigger than it really is: See Here.

Very tall woman. Uncommon but there are increasing numbers of women taller than 6ft. Heck, female volleyball players are generally 6ft plus these days.

She is lovely, Rob.

A legit 6'3 woman midday is about the equivalent of a 6'9 man midday
Anon183cm says on 8/Apr/14
I think a woman 6'0 - 6'2 is equivalent to a guy who is 6'5 - 6'7 - rare, but you will see them often enough. I've come across a few women in this range, often when I go out there will be one or two women my height or taller. I can see why she'd have trouble getting roles though, just as a 6'8+ guy will have trouble getting a role which isn't a giant or a brute of some description.

They make Gwendoline seem bigger and bulkier I think on screen, she's actually quite svelte off-screen. I've got Gwendoline by 2 inches...in my experience any girl 5'9" or taller gets told they should be a model. Wow, KROC, a 6'5" girl is like a near 7 foot man, quite rare.
Brad says on 7/Apr/14
Glad I got her by 3". Nice Joe Montana-Al Pacino type signature. I hate those scribbles.
KROC says on 7/Apr/14
I dated a girl that was the same height as me once (6'5)... We were a very interesting couple
Sam says on 7/Apr/14
Great photo, love Christie's looks and her work in GOT. She seems talented enough to get work not necessarily based on her size.

I've met one or two 6'2"-6'3" range women and once dated a 6'1" woman, so she's less unprecedented to me.
lelman says on 7/Apr/14
Must be extremely awkward for her, having most average guys around... that level.

On a serious note, I don't think I've ever met a women over 6'0" in my life. Would she be the equivalent of like, a 6'8" guy?
[Editor Rob: I think that's probably the equivalent.]
tiny says on 7/Apr/14
Atlast a woman who is not afraid to reveal her real height & weight. At 6'3" & 168 lbs she is very tall and also very well built though personally I would have liked another 15 lbs on her skinny frame
VanillaIce says on 6/Apr/14
JESUS Christ i stand at a very Meager 5 ft 5 she could beat the S**t outta me!!
Alex 6ft 0 says on 6/Apr/14
At my job we have 2 very tall women. One 6'2 and the other 5'11-6'0. Aside from them I rarely see women that tall let alone 6'3.
Emmett says on 6/Apr/14
WOW! Tall and gorgeous. The tallest women I've ever seen who weren't pro basketball players were probably 6'1, maybe weak 6'2.
Lillo thomas says on 6/Apr/14
And she is very close to me height. Only 2 inches shorter . Huge woman.
Balrog says on 6/Apr/14
Yeah I knew she was a legit 6'3" Rob does this makes Waldau a legit 187cm?
the shredder says on 6/Apr/14
Damn she is hot for being 6'3 , my 5'6.25 would love to climb her legs :) .
Peyman says on 6/Apr/14
I think she is 190.5 at the absolute lowest & more like 193 out of bed. a real 7in difference should look like that.I've never seen a woman over 6ft 1in from what I remember, it's extremely rare.
taller than 97% of men !!!!!!!!
avi says on 5/Apr/14
@Rob
She seems a bit pompous about being tall? Is this a charade to make us think she is really happy about it?
Sean.rt says on 5/Apr/14
Is she now the tallest woman on celeb heights that you have a photo with?
miko says on 5/Apr/14
She is huge, I saw 3 women in quick succession last week, two around the 6 foot 1 mark who just edged me out and one that looked close to 6'4, I was standing there shocked, it is weird to see women this tall.
James B says on 5/Apr/14
Massive women and gorgeous as well
Joshua says on 5/Apr/14
Rob my shoe is approximately 2cm in heel i wear 3cm insole am 175 barefoot. what do you reckon is my height with the shoe plus insole?
Hypado says on 5/Apr/14
Yes, very tall.

6ft 3in (191 cm)
Connor 184.5-185cm says on 5/Apr/14
She is a genuine solid 6ft 3 without a doubt shes very honest about her height as theres a lot of celebs out there who lie about their height shes definetly not one of them, i agree alex thats a solid 7 inch difference with rob she absolutely dwarfs him! lol big woman
Connor 184.5-185cm says on 5/Apr/14
Wow, oh my god im shocked shes huge! what a giantess she is and 6ft 3 is the equilavent to a 6ft 8 man! definetly extremely tall i would certainly feel short stood with her as im only 6ft 1/2! rob how rare in real life would it be to spot women of Gwendolines height? i bet you felt really puny stood with her!
Mathew says on 5/Apr/14
Based on the photo I think she's about my height, quite possibly a touch shorter but for argument's sake I'll say the same. About 6'3.25" in the morning and 6'2.5" at night. In person, does that seem about right Rob?
Andrea says on 5/Apr/14
Yeah, she does look near 6'3 ! Very tall woman! Rob, how tall was the tallest woman you ever met?
Lillo thomas says on 5/Apr/14
Wow this woman is huge ! She looks 6'3 next to rob.
Alex 6ft 0 says on 5/Apr/14
With a 9 inch head in length her eye level seems more than 4.5 inches. At first I thought maybe a 6 inch difference and she was nearer 6'2 but looking at it again I do see a 7 inch difference making her a solid 6'3
Chris says on 11/Mar/14
No, i meant, what is 9 inches range for you in terms of what dimensional unit you have in mind for this term.
Because sometimes you say 9 inches range and then in other cases "a little over 9 inch" and "about 9 inches".
According to the big G (no, not that one) 9 inches is 22.86 centimeters (i'm from Germany), so, does 23 cm fall into category "9 inches range", "a little over 9 inch", or "about 9 inches" for you?
As for my reasoning for being so obsessed with head sizes: I'm transgender (male to female), and i wasn't exactly blessed with a small head. This poses my greatest insecurity in transitioning. My body is pretty good and my face too, but i'm very insecure about my head size.
[Editor Rob: yes 9 inch think of 23cm and your own head isn't big for 182.]
Chris says on 10/Mar/14
Is 23 cm 9 inches range for you, Rob, or a little above 9 inch? What's the deviation for you in X inch range? 0,1 inches up and down max?
[Editor Rob: I think in 9-9.25 range if that is what you are talking about in the old comment you made?]
Chris says on 8/Mar/14
What would be her male equivalent height?
[Editor Rob: 6ft 8-9?]

Your ex wife was certainly a genuine person not to care about your height, genuine people wouldn't care being a head taller or shorter than somebody.
Height is an interesting subject to discuss but after all it's only a mark on a wall, no way should it rule your life or be a condition for loving somebody. My three cousins (girls) measure 172 177 and 174, they respectively married 169 174 and 175 men (Two were taller, one a fraction shorter)and seem to be very happy.They could have found rather easily guys in 180-88 range, but I'm not sure they would have been happier.
Emily says on 16/Dec/13
How long is her head? It looks small in the above photo, but here Click Here it looks big.
[Editor Rob: I had a look at a friends photo with her and I would say 9 inches range]
Sarah says on 28/Nov/13
She is very tall, but she is in proportion and doesn't look like a giant. 6'3".
Xerox says on 30/May/13
My Ex wife was a bit over 6ft 2in (188cm)and she was a knockout. With me being 5ft 9in she absolutely towered over me...especially when she wore her 4" heels and topped me by nine inches. The differences in our heights was the least of our problems in fact it wasn't a problem for either of us.

The only problem we actually had was the USMC and her belief that I loved the Marine Corps more than I did her. But in fairness the USMC eats up a lot of your life if you are a true believer.

The fact remains that not only did her height not intimidates or put me off it was exotic. A woman of that height, good looks and pleasant demeanor is actually one in 10,000. A rare flower.
amanda says on 4/May/13
And the confidence to wear heels! Loved Brienne in the books, and she is perfect in that role, acting and all!
Alex says on 16/Apr/13
@Tracey: I don't think any woman should feel uncomfortable for being 5'11''. It's a very unique and nice height. I know many women women who would give anything to have your height. A 6'3'' woman on the other hand... well, that's tougher but not impossible to handle and still be atttractive. As this lady proves.
Tracey says on 14/Apr/13
I'm a 5'11" women who didn't grow up comfortable with being tall - but am so inspired by her awesome attitude and confidence regarding her height. LOVE her in Game Of Thrones!!
little sue says on 27/Mar/13
She says in today's Metro she is 6ft 3 but I would say probably nearer 6ft 4 with her pictures with Coster-Waldau. I wonder what were the heights of her parents??
Sam says on 21/Mar/13
Yes if Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is 6'2" range (which he does seem to be compared to other actors, i.e. Paul Bettany, Sean Bean, etc.) Gwendoline is 6'3". She looks a few inches taller but is wearing heels.

Balrog says on 13/Jan/13
It wouldn't surprise me if she's taller than 6'3''. She was clearly taller than Waldau who is a confirmed and legit 6'2'' man.
Jack says on 3/Jan/13
I think she's downgrading herself. 6'4.5" morning height would make her closer to 6'3.75" or so, which she definitely seems much closer to.
[Editor Rob: it's not impossible to shrink over an inch...when you are as tall as that.]

Interview from 2008:

"I am 6'3" or 6'4 1/2", depending on when you measure me. My parents treated my height as a wonderful thing to be celebrated, but also normal. I love being tall as you literally look at life from a different perspective: it's easier to breeze through life's turmoils; there's more room to breathe."
