How tall is Hannah Waddingham

Hannah Waddingham's Height

5ft 11in (180 cm)

British actress best known for playing Tonya on TV series Benidorm, Septa Unella in Game of Thrones and for West End productions like Spamalot and Into the Woods. She said in an interview in WhatsonTv "I'm 5ft 11in anyway and then they gave me 4in heeled shoes so I felt absolutely enormous". On her talent agency, she was also described as: "Height: 5'11", Hair Colour: Blonde, Eye Colour: Green". This photo was from a Showmasters Film and Comic Con event. In person I thought she looked exactly the height she claimed, and certainly stood 4-5cm taller than The height some sites report her as being.

It just seems kinda odd. I'm about 5'11 and my eye level is like 5'6.25-5'6.5, From the mugshot lines her eye level seems to be right at 5'7.
Editor Rob: I think she is standing quite well, and she's certainly not lowering her eyelevel. You can see her with a weak 5ft 6 guy josef altin when she is lowering her eyelevel, it looks longer there.

Would a girl at 5'11 have a higher eye level than a guy?
Editor Rob: not necessarily, although the average eyelevel for ladies is slightly less than men, but the taller the lady the greater chance eyelevel is above average. I'd say Hannah's head length was long for a women.

she's standing at her tallest while Rob is slouching. Come on, Big R, straighten up ;)

With the chart up you're right, the hair does add a bit, but oddly she can look near 6 ft here, might be because she's slightly to the side and creates the illusion of taller. She looks a very nice woman BTW.

Can look 182 in this photo but will take your word for it she's 180 ;-)

In this photo alone she looks almost 6 ft imo. Maybe she's just a really strong 5'11..

Hey Rob please answer this ,I am 188 cm exactly and if I wear normal Adidas sneakers and she wears 5 inch heels , Would she be taller than me?
Editor Rob: 5-inch heels might not give enough 'actual height' to match you. If it was a true 5-inch heel of course she would look taller, but those ones would be sold and described as being 6.5 inch heels in shops.

Rob aren`t you closer to 5`8.25 cause in that case she is at least 5`11.25.
Editor Rob: I'd be 5ft 8 1/8th if standing tall, but I'm not standing that tall.

Pretty crazy that Google has both her and Corey Feldman listed as 5'9".

In comparison to you Rob she actually looks taller but it might be her hair. Did you have similar footwear?
Editor Rob: it looked roughly similar, but the model of sneaker I couldn't tell.

the time of this photo is 11.50am. She might not be her at her low, I am at my low...up at 4am to get out the door by 5am to get to the airport for a 7am flight.

small posture/position differences can always increase/reduce height differences.

Rob, you-sir-are one lucky man. Hannah is a genuinely tall and very beautiful classy woman. Do check that ridiculous google listing of Hannah's height at 1.76m. They've got the short folk listed even 6inched above their actual height and the truly tall ones ludicrously downgraded. Lost for words..
Editor Rob: if you look at a cache of imdb's page of Hannah, you can see where google took that figure from, as our friends at imdb once approved an update from a visitor who submitted her height as 176cm, Shown here.

Looks a flat 181 cm to me. That's 5'11.25," right?
will said on 20/May/16
maybe slightly above 5'11? she sure is one tall woman!
Johno said on 20/May/16
Correct listing, 5'11.
Aaron Zamora said on 19/May/16
She looks 6' foot I don't know how you see 5'11 if the shoes were around the same.
slothee said on 18/May/16
Did you two have similar footwear? If you're 173 cm she looks at least 181 cm to me. Maybe even close to 182 cm.
Editor Rob: she looked 5ft 11 as she claims.
Andrea said on 18/May/16
I had to type her name on Google to see which was her role in GOT xD
She has a small role and i actually never paid attention to her height but, if she has similar footwear, she looks at least 5'11 here (maybe she's got some camera advantage?)
Editor Rob: she looks different than the character she played on GOT.
Her sneaker type I wasn't as certain on, but it looked roughly similar inch range.

Wasn't expecting her to be this tall, but then again I didn't pay much attention to her height last season.

Legit 5'11 or at worst a hair under,IMO.

What was the shoe difference?
