Kate Mulgrew's Height
5ft 4.5in (164 cm)
Peak height was 5ft 5in (165 cm)
American Actress best known for playing Captain Janeway on TV series Star Trek Voyager. She remarked when asked her height : "How tall am I? Five, five."
...she also said on the website 'Little Review' that wearing boots on voyager damaged her feet, "I'm 5'5", so the boots are three and a half inches...but they do that because they have to....I have to wear the boots, because the guys are all tall."
. I met her at a Collectormania Event in Milton Keynes. She had at least 0.75 inch thicker boots compared to our converse that day.

Regarding my earlier comment: whether or not she looked old or not, she always had good, thick hair; and clearly still does!

She looks quite well, given that I think she always looked a bit older than I thought she was, even when dating Ted Danson's character (Sam Malone) on Cheers.
She also played Columbo's wife in the short lived TV series "Mrs. Columbo", where she solved the crimes herself. Hopefully she wasn't as irritating as her husband! (In the shows!)

If Kate has lost height, I can understand how. If those shoes damaged her feet, and she did wear them for years so they probably did, that might contribute to her losing height. I would know - my feet are damaged from Perthes' Disease, and my doctor told me it's probably why I haven't grown past 5ft 1 and a half. She did have very good posture on the show, though, so I don't think it would've been that, but I do know that damaged feet can cause people to be short/lose height.

jtm: Jeri Ryan is 5'7.5" and wore 3-inch heels on Voyager, so she was close to 5'11" in the series.
Brad: The funny thing is, that Voyager had quite a short cast. From all the male cast members, Robert Duncan McNeill was the only one above 6 feet.
I still can't believe Mulgrew was ever 5'5". See my point about Jennifer Lien 5'3" + 2" = 5'5" and taller than Mulgrew barefoot. Also, Ethan Phillips is listed on this site as 5'4.5", yet he only appeared ca. 1 inch shorter than Mulgrew, who wore heels (I guess Phillips also had some boost in his shoes). I'd say Mulgrew is 5'4".

Wore heeled customs on the series, at 5' 4.5" you can't really be Captain like staring up at 6 footers.

In the Voyager episode "Tuvix", there is a scene in which Mulgrew is barefoot and is shorter than 5'3" Jennifer Lien, wearing ca. 2-inch heels. Without the ca. 3-inch heels Mulgrew wore for the show, she is around 5'4".

5ft 8 1⁄8 Rob
How to measure that exactly , I thought a human's height flacuate over the day ... do you take different measurements and takes the average?
I just can measure to 1/2 of an inch :(
[Editor Rob: Away from this site *of course* I don't say anything else but 5ft 8, but on here, it is just giving my exact lowest measurement.
If people want to go with lunchtime measurements then I would say they should view me as 5ft 8.25
If they want to go with say 10am measurement they could see me as 5ft 8.5.
If they want to view heights as 'straight out of bed' they can view me as a 5ft 8.9 guy.

great, powerful woman, 5ft5 peak and a strong one. Jeri Ryan is weak 5ft8 tops, even a full 5ft8 is pushing it. Although she was occasionally listed as 5ft8.5. Kate Mulgrew was more likely 166cm peak IMO

jeri ryan 5'11?
Editor Rob said on 12/Dec/10
miko, she's mid 50's, I think she had good posture on that show and in person aswell she stood like a captain would...
Matt said on 8/Dec/10
I just realised jenny is equivelant to a 6ft 2.25 - 2.5 guy, shes very tall for a woman!
miko said on 6/Dec/10
Why do you think she's lost height Rob? Bad posture?
