How tall is Kristian Nairn

Kristian Nairn's Height

6ft 8in (203.2 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 9in (205.7 cm)
Northern Ireland born actor and DJ best known for playing Hodor on HBO series Game of Thrones. On his own website's 'about me' section it used to mention "Standing at 6'10" tall" and Kristian claimed on Twitter to be "6ft 11 ish" and also "I'm either 6ft 10 or 11 depending on the measuring tape". He also mentioned "After all these years, there is only one thing that makes me self conscious about my height. Airplanes.". This photo is from a London Film Con in 2013. I thought Kristian looked at least 6ft 9, see a visual comparison between Hodor and The Mountain

Kristian Nairn is very tall
5ft 8 Rob and Kristian
I'm 41 and I'm 6ft 10in. Some people say I'm 6ft 11in, some 6ft 9in. I don't want them to shave off an inch, but I don't want them to add an inch either to disappoint people.

height : 6'9" , weight : about 400 lbs

I'd say about 210 cm
Andrea said on 3/Aug/17
Hell, I feel bad for him! 😧
He's only 41! Maybe if he lost some weight, he'd be able to stand better...
Editor Rob: I think it would help him, in another 5 years he could be struggling to walk.

Here is a brief clip to show how he walks nowadays

EASILY looks 6'6'' and I'm sorry but watching him walk is just funny
Editor Rob: that his weight and size has really caused him posture problems...he can still manage to walk, just not as well as he could 5 years ago - believe me, he walked far more upright and looked noticeably taller just that short time ago...for last 3 years he didn't want to stand in photoshoots because it's painful for him now.

The guy is only 41 now and late 30's in that pic with Rob, which is NOT old, yet he looks much older than his age (late 50's at least) and his weight and posture is making him tilt forward. By the time he reaches 50 or even 60 he'll have lost several inches in height from his peak.
even said on 8/Jul/17
as everyone can see in the photo he is 6'9"
miko said on 5/Jul/17
His neck has disappeared, all the weight he is carrying is destroying his posture. If he doesn't sort his weight out he'll be 6'6 flat by the end of the decade or in a wheelchair.
Matthew Robinson said on 10/Jun/17
Maybe he really was 6'10" 20 years ago, and started losing height in like his 30s or something! Would be rare but he looks pretty much 6'9" when he met Rob in the picture here... But now can look only 6'6" walking around!
Editor Rob: you couldn't rule it out. I wonder if he would measure himself today, how much of a surprise he'd get.
mrtguy said on 26/May/17
****sock said on 25/May/17
I don't watch Game of Thrones, but this guy is clearly at least 6'9". I bet he'd be pretty close in size and height with The Big Show.



Have you seen him lately, he barely looks over 6'6'' Click Here with Nate Fillion whom Rob met in person and is 6'1'' range
Editor Rob: he definitely does look shorter the last couple of years...but still, if you measured him, I'm sure he's going to manage to stretch up taller than he is able to when standing alone.

Rob, here's a quote you may want to consider adding "I'm 41 and I'm 6ft 10in. Some people say I'm 6ft 11in, some 6ft 9in. I don't want them to shave off an inch, but I don't want them to add an inch either to disappoint people."

Editor Rob: ok mrt, it is a long enough quote to put in the wee box under his photo I think!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Apr/17
207-208cm range peak, 205cm looks a bit low
Mathew Robinson said on 15/Apr/17
I believe he was probably right on 6'9" when this photo was taken. The question is: did he used to be just a little higher before this even? Maybe he was 6'9.5" peak, I think he'd be approaching 6'11" if measured in shoes or in the morning if that was the case. Could account for him thinking he was 6'10" - 6'11" range, which is clearly not the case at the moment.
Canson said on 10/Apr/17
As listed both.
S.J.H said on 10/Apr/17
Just notice rob dropping height with Nairn. Rob stance might be 5'7-5'7.25 up here. Nairn is under 6'8
John said on 27/Mar/17
Peak: 6'10"
Now: 6'5 5/8"
John said on 27/Mar/17
Probably around 6'6 now. He was 6'9 in this picture.
S.J.H said on 21/Jan/17
I have no idea how old is Kristian Nairn but he didnt look much older than rob. It's strange that he loss an inch even he had posture issues at age 40s? I know 2 big fellows who were brothers , one was 6'6 350 pounds another 6'5.5 and 345 pounds both in their mid 40s and i have being knowing them over 10 years they still look the same height despite one of them had hip surgery and another had two times knee operation they still manage to keep up their height solid at 197cm and 198cm and only problem was their weight issues keep them hard on breathing. I think Kristian Nairn could have keep up 6'8.5 a chance when get measure.. Maybe..
Strong 5ft9 said on 15/Jan/17
Hey Rob, you think his claims might've been him busting a gut while being measured? He is a bit on the obese side and might be slouching.
Editor Rob: he's standing quite good in this photoshoot, he's certainly not standing worse than me.
rrr said on 29/Dec/16
Rob, am I right if you agree with 5 inches shrinking in 70, then I believe Kristen can be still end up in 6'1-6'2 at 70s, then can be struggle to look even 6 ft and end up in 182 cm or weak 6 ft zone. Rob, am I right? I will be surprised if he lost 7 inches in 80 s.
Editor Rob: He's went from looking taller than big Hafthor, to looking shorter than him...in fact I saw him in July and thought 'this bloke looks shorter than daniel cudmore'!

BUT, I think he stands lower than he will measure, natural given his size and the impact on his spine, knees etc.
kurts height said on 20/Dec/16
he is kind of leaning I'd say 6'9
josef said on 18/Dec/16
Even if he shrunk a bit, still a giant
Chase Witherspoon said on 12/Dec/16
Reckon he's a pebble higher than The Mountain, though not as upright /posture perfect which gives the illusion of parity~ either side of 6'9" would be my best guess and probably a little taller at peak...
miko said on 7/Dec/16
To be fair Nairn hasn't helped himself by giving himself such a big frame. If he was 100lbs lighter he'd be able to move around better.
Jordan87 said on 5/Dec/16
Shame about his movement.

Large people that are both very tall and Heavy do suffer in their joints and such. Evan shaq said he had bad joint pain already when he was in his mid 30's.
berta said on 30/Nov/16
if he looked 3 cm taller in 2013 than now then he probably was 6 foot 10 8 years back
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Nov/16
I think this guy could end up in a similar situation to David Prowse. It is very sad
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 7/Nov/16
Editor Rob: I think his knees and back are well and truly f***** nowadays. The Big chap is the same age as me, but he had the walk of an 80 year old man at LFCC earlier this year... I felt sorry for him. I think by age 70 he could end up 5 inches shorter than his peak.

---------

Lol, that's the first time I've ever seen you use swear words on Celebheights Rob.
Editor Rob: well Christian, I starred my swearing out ;)

Actually I think on a site like this it is better not to have swearing, hence why I put a filter into the comments. I'm aiming for PG-13, not 18-rated.
mrtguy said on 5/Nov/16
Rob, if you seen Kingma and Nairn in person today, would you think Kingma is 2-3 inches taller than Nairn in person??
Editor Rob: Kingma will look 2-3 inches taller, but it might be a case of Nairn still squeezing out a big 1-2 inches or so more than he can look
Jordan87 said on 3/Nov/16
6'8 Now.
Editor Rob: I think his knees and back are well and truly f***** nowadays. The Big chap is the same age as me, but he had the walk of an 80 year old man at LFCC earlier this year... I felt sorry for him. I think by age 70 he could end up 5 inches shorter than his peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Oct/16
Seems like he's got health problems
Leonardo 1.73m said on 15/Oct/16
Is he here in his peak? @Rob
Editor Rob: possibly...although in his early 20's he could have always been a fraction taller. In last 4 years he's lost height for certain.
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 29/Sep/16
Tough thing to gauge with this guy is how much he could stretch up for a measurement.
Guanzo said on 15/Aug/16
Kevin Nash is still 6'9?
Editor Rob: Nash is taller today than Nairn in person, at least an inch.
mrtguy said on 8/Aug/16
Rob, how about a downgrade for Nairn too from 6'9'' to 6'8'', it's fair to say since guys like Shaq and Big Show got downgraded
Editor Rob: I watched him at film con and really 6ft 8 could be a stretch today, but...he might still manage to stretch up near it, he simply just doesn't look it walking about.
lekuki said on 30/Jul/16
Man, thats a big man
Editor Rob: unfortunately today he isn't quite as tall. He can look more 6ft 6 than 6ft 9.

His back is now more curved than 3-4 years ago.
Alex said on 9/Jul/16
He's huge.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jun/16
I get the feeling he may have been taller than this at one point
mrtguy said on 13/Jun/16
Rob, recently Nairn has only been looking 6'6 er with numerous people even with a normal posture, but the size of his head is equal to those of an 8 footer. do you think his weight is really starting to take toll in his back and causing him to appear shorter nowadays??
Editor Rob: yes, he looks to have been carrying a fair amount of weight for years now and that could have taken a toll on his joints being the size he is.
berta said on 9/Jun/16
When a guy this big claims 6 foot 10-11 its not a lie. He probably have been measured 6 foot 10`5 but because he is so Heavy he is down to this height by the afternon
mrtguy said on 6/Jun/16
Rob, I can imagine now Nairn probably doesn't even duck on standard 6'6''-7'' doors
Crane said on 1/Jun/16
@Rob This dude or The Mountain ?
Editor Rob: 3-4 years ago I'd have said Hodor in a measuring contest would win the battle for the Height Throne, but today The Mountain does give a bigger impression, Hodor's overall posture last year has made him look 6ft 6-7 range!
Slon said on 26/May/16
Rob, what would you reckon the size of his chest??
It looks Huge
Editor Rob: really I couldn't guess that size of chest
mrtguy said on 15/May/16
Rob, guys like Nairn and Kingma show some signs of acromegaly their head size is really huge and look out of proportion compared to Kevin Nash
Editor Rob: yes definitely Kingma shows some more signs and nairn does have a reasonably big head, but some of that in the jowls is of course weight-related.
S.J.H said on 30/Apr/16
He look at least 6'8.25 and look taller than kevin nash with rob
Slon said on 29/Apr/16
Rob, do you believe this girl would be taller than Nairn?? Click Here
Editor Rob: today I think she would, a few years ago they'd be same range.

Jackson Martinez said on 17/Apr/16
Rob, you've once said that you were only standing 5'7" with Nairn,
Why did you put the line on 5'8" then?

Do you think he could be measured taller than björnsson today if he would fully streched up?
Editor Rob: I think it would be confusing to do it. Today I struggle to see him taller than hafthor, but 3 years ago he could still stand pretty tall, in this photoshoot he managed it with quite a few people.
mrtguy said on 12/Apr/16
If his head was bald he would only appear 6'8''
mrtguy said on 6/Apr/16
Rob, in 15 years time do you believe he will even measure 6'6''??
Editor Rob: I wonder what his knees and hips will be like then...
James B said on 5/Apr/16
Legit 6'9 with rob

A genuine giant sized man
mrtguy said on 30/Mar/16
In that pic, he looks a hair under 6'10'', but I could see 6'9''.
That guy said on 29/Mar/16
6'10 with his hair
Guyster said on 25/Feb/16
Hi Rob with Kristian Nairn struggling to stand at 6"9, would a downgrade of height be on the cards, as he struggles to posture up in more recent pics, regards.
Editor Rob: 3 years ago I think in the 6ft 9 range...lately in last year maybe he's heading to 6ft 8 now.
S.J.H said on 20/Feb/16
Nairn look about 6'8 with a 5'7.5 stance rob. I believe he was ever 6'9 but recent pictures he look like 6'7 range and not over 6'7.5
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 6/Feb/16
It's quite instructive, the new height lines you've managed to draw in over photos!
Editor Rob: I'm only testing on a few pages, but the question is, are they worth doing for more...Especially ones with a bigger difference in height...

if you are on a mobile/tablet you can click on the image lines.
120 said on 26/Jan/16
Rob, is his footwear giving more height than yours. It could be why he's giving such a 6'10" impression here.
Editor Rob: 14 inches is a fair amount, by comparison Dinklage is 15 inches smaller than me.

This bloke does cons and isn't taller than me...

I'm standing worse with Nairn than I am with Cudmore. You'd be surprised if you saw nairn and cudmore in person today...you wouldn't think nairn was taller!
Alex said on 20/Jan/16
How tall do you think he might reach straight out of bed?
Editor Rob: more chance a big guy in that range could shrink 3-4cm from straight outta bed
mrtguy said on 1/Jan/16
Rob, the only reason why he can pass as 6'10'', is b/c your dropping a few cm from your actual height and Nairn has a fair bit of chunk of hair, otherwise I think he actually looks like a strong 6'9'' in this pic with you. I have a question, did you list him at 6'10'' before on this page?
mrtguy said on 22/Dec/15
Rob, how many inches do you think there is between Nairn and Whyte?
Editor Rob: based on the angle and their positions, I think there is no less than 4, possibly at times more in that clip, but I think you can see at a point Nairn standing a bit taller - his natural standing height can vary.

I'm glad I got a photo with him back when he was able to stand tall in photos and didn't begin asking to sit on a chair.
Andrea said on 19/Dec/15
It's an old clip, Rob... I wouldn't say Kristian looks under 6'9 there but he's much closer to the camera, so he'll look taller than he is!
Kristian doesn't look taller than 6'8 with you and there's a picture with Peter Mayhew, listed at 6'10, who looks a good couple inches taller than him! 6'8 is much closer to his real height, unless he always stands with bad posture with the others!
And hey before you say he could have lost some height... The picture with Peter was taken before you met him :)
Editor Rob said on 18/Dec/15
You can see a clip from MCM here of Nairn (closer to camera) and Ian Whyte:

yeezy said on 10/Dec/15
Rob, I'd discount anything over 6'10'', 6'9" could be his range without shoes, try comparing him to Kingma he looks NO TALLER
mrtguy said on 8/Dec/15
Rob, to end this topic, can you agree that guy is nowhere near 7'1'' (or 6'10") IMO just a tad taller than 6'9'' realistically? I wouldn't be surprised if he loses any height throughout the day he seems bit overweight.
Editor Rob: I'd discount 7ft range
mrtguy said on 4/Dec/15
Rob, also I don't think that guy too is a legit 6'10''. I just watched one of his videos Click Here Apparently, he was 6'9'' when he was in 8th grade there's possibility he stopped growing or most likely grew another cm later. I think the older he got it gave him the right to exaggerate his height even more to a ridiculous 7'1'' which is BS.
mrtguy said on 4/Dec/15
Rob, What footwear did Nairn wear? I mean he looks around the same height as this guy you recognize: Click Here
Editor Rob: didn't think much different from mine, which were 3/4 inch
mrtguy said on 7/Nov/15
This pic is deceiving he actually looks nearer 6'10'', but next to Mayhew he doesn't?
mrtguy said on 22/Oct/15
6'7.75 possible today Rob?
[Editor Rob: it can be hard to tell as he definitely walks smaller than 3 years ago, but you can tell he struggles with the amount of weight he is carrying...measure the guy and he might still clear 6ft 8]
Ice said on 19/Oct/15
@ Emil 183

lol if you think that 180 - 185 range isnt medium height in Scandinavia youve never been there , or you just have a totally wrong perception . Actually 183 is average there . So 180 would be under the average , so not even medium height . Your not considered tall in any european white country .
mrtguy said on 23/Sep/15
Rob, there was this one time I seen a big guy probably 200 plus lbs heavier than Nairn, his weight was 579 lbs (his height is 6'9'' too) Click Here
[Editor Rob: I can believe that guy is heavier...Nairn this year looked heavier than 2 years ago. All that weight and the knee/hip joints will start taking their toll.]

mrtguy said on 5/Sep/15
Rob, do you think that chick who was in WWE, who claimed 6'9" and 245 lbs would edge Nairn today?
[Editor Rob: she probably would give a taller impression as nairn at times struggles to look as tall as he probably measures...he's a very bulky guy, I can understand his back/knees have taken a lot and it's why he walks smaller than he actually is.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Jul/15
Easily 6ft8+
[Editor Rob: I walked behind him recently and can see he is struggling these days carrying that amount of weight. But he really doesn't look over 6ft 7 when walking about...actually measuring him would be different though.]
Emil 182-183 cm said on 19/Jul/15
@Modeus
World average height for a male is 5'7-5'8. Ever been to Asia? South America? Latin America? Many countries where men are below 5'7 on average.. And theres no country where 180-189 range is considered 'medium'. Its fairly tall even in Scandinavia and in Holland.
Matthew said on 1/Jul/15
Rob, you think a peak and current height could be in order for this guy? I know he's young for that, but maybe a 6'9.5" peak and 6'8.5" current might tell a more realistic story for both what he used to be and what in the best case scenario he may be able to stretch himself up to today.
[Editor Rob: it is possible an inch of loss, but I'm not certain just how much he might have lost, whether he is more unable to unhinge/stretch up his back as much as he used to. ]

joe 193cm night said on 26/May/15
Rob, did you meet Michael Kingma think it would be higher Kristian Nairn at the time of the peak, I think Kingma slightly higher
[Editor Rob: Nairn doesn't stand as tall as he used to, but Kingma has a big head in person and looked about 6ft 9 I feel.]
Matthew said on 18/May/15
If I was Rob I think I'd list:

6'9.5" peak, 6'8.5" today.

I think it's pretty likely he's prematurely dropped height, he really doesn't look much more than 6'7" today but maybe he could still measure a strong 6'8" if standing his best. I think he was likely in the 6'9" - 6'10" range until recently.
hal said on 12/May/15
Some people have really weird opinions on what's short, tall, and average. That "G" guy is one of them. And I think 6'9" seems accurate for Nairn. No less.

Hello. I heard that to be considered a giant, should be a foot taller than average. In my opinion related to the heights: 149 cm or less: gnome. 150-159 centímetros: extremely low. 160-169 centímetros: very low. 170-179 centímetros: low. 180-189 centímetros: Medium. 190-199 centímetros: high. 200-209 centímetros: very high. 210-219 centímetros: extremely high. 220 cm or more: alien.

I don't know how one can decipher 0.25 diff anyway when they're as big as this anyway!
Arch Stanton said on 16/Apr/15
Rob, how about 6'8.75 seems at Bjornosson is at 6'7.75!
Andrea said on 15/Apr/15
Then, he doesn't even look 6'8 with you... You think he might have lost some height in posture? I could buy 6'8 but 6'9 really seems a stretch!
[Editor Rob: I doubt he lost much, I think he was standing reasonably well, but I definitely did drop height because I feel he can be a guy who could for a measurement stand a bit taller]
Andrea said on 14/Apr/15
So, would you say this is a 3 inches difference? Click Here
[Editor Rob: about 2.5, but not really 3 in the photo.]
Andrea said on 13/Apr/15
First of all, you said he's got more a 11 inches head... You also said you were standing more 5'7 here... In any case, look at Ali's picture! Is that a 6'5 guy vs 6'9? I see maybe 2 good inches, certainly not 4!
[Editor Rob: in the photo he can look more 6ft 8 than 9 yes.]
Andrea said on 12/Apr/15
Rob, you said when you took this picture he still looked 6'9 range, right? But let's be objective, would you say this how a 5'7 guy would look next to a 6'9? He looks maybe between 6'7 and 6'8... And how the hell do you think he got 6'11 on a measuring tape, it seems absurd!
[Editor Rob: if his head is in 10.5 inch range then a 5ft 8 can look about this with 6ft 9.]
Bishop said on 12/Apr/15
Maybe 6'8.5" today and 6'9" peak.
Emil 183 cm said on 11/Apr/15
@Rob
He could suffer with knee/back problems these days which won't make him able to stand tall. I have an injury in my left knee at the moment and if I exercise with high intensity it gets so tense that I cannot straighten it fully.
I measured 1.5 cm shorter the other day because of that, though I measure my normal height again now.
Freaking scary. Fortunately I'm having an X-Ray soon
Lorne said on 10/Apr/15
Of course I forgot about Nairn's longer massive head until just now... He is a huge fellow.

I wonder why he's claiming 6'10/6'11 though... I mean it's odd, it would seem he has no reason to lie, yet he's clearly not that height. I can believe 6'9, no more.(Though a guy his size could certainly lose height faster than a typical man, not to mention he probably varies at least 3cm from morning to night.

@Lorne
I liked the expression "G'ing"
Maybe one day we would read on dictionaries something like
To G:to act like Glenn Cunningham (known as G),to boost one's height,against all sense and under all circumstances.(By extension:all people claiming 5'8)
Lol,That would be the ultimate tribute to G's long career as a 5'8,what do you think?
Who knows if the site becomes very famous,this could happen.


Lol. I am just now seeing that. As far as Nairn is concerned, he was always 6ft8.5, and maybe a fractional loss combined with poor posture makes him look even less today.
joe 193cm night said on 13/Mar/15
peak 6'9 (206), what would be your time now?
[Editor Rob: last year at collectormania in glasgow he struggled big time to look anywhere near 6ft 9. It's hard to tell how much height he has lost or exactly what he might measure because he seems to carry himself shorter.

3-4 years ago seeing him up close, walking about and standing, he could hold a good posture and look near 6ft 9...nowadays he struggles to stand at his tallest.]
6ftMagician said on 11/Mar/15
Rob he looks much shorter today. Do you agree he looks struggles to look over 200cm today?

Still a big dude, but needs to lose 100 pounds or his spine will only further degenerate under that immense load. Sickening loss.
[Editor Rob: I think his back and knees have taken a toll, maybe with the extra work he did through GOT/DJing and all the travel for conventions etc - while carrying a lot of weight - he's now lost a bit...]

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Feb/15
There's no way that this guy is only 6ft6-7! I've got people in my family that range and up close they do not look anything like that next to a 5ft8.
Anywhere from 6ft8 up to 6ft10 is arguable though. He'd easily clear out Daniel Cudmore...
joe 193cm night said on 16/Feb/15
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover he looks like a shorter cm than this guy aquihttp: //www.celebheights.com/s/Michael-Kingma-3773.html
Tunman said on 16/Jan/15
Rob,how can he look only 6'6-7 when you said he looked near 6'9 only 2 years ago?
and he's only 39,maybe he could measure 6'8 assuming he could already have lost a fraction due to weight,but 2-3"?
[Editor Rob: he wasn't much taller than Clive Russell the day I seen them last year in glasgow...whether it is a compressed spine or he's now got disc damage and lost height is harder to say.

He was taller in 2013, or at least able to stand taller I feel.]

Andrea said on 1/Dec/14
Talking about Nairn looking only 6'6, here's a picture with a 5'11 guy:
Click Here
Do you agree he doesn't look over 6'6 there?
[Editor Rob: that's the kind of range he was looking this year...6ft 6-7. But it could be due to his weight and the toll of work and travel for cons etc maybe he's struggling a bit more this year and walks or stands shorter now than he used to.]
Andrea said on 29/Nov/14
Well, with you he certainly doesn't look over 6'8 and he can look 2-2.5 inches shorter than Peter Mayhew... 6'8 is not impossible at all...
[Editor Rob: last time I seen Kristian in glasgow he was standing talking to the photographer (who went and got a seat for him). Compared to say Tyler Mane he actually looked shorter! But then at LFCC when I seen him he did look taller.]
Andrea said on 29/Nov/14
Rob, how tall you think this guy looks with Nairn?
Click Here
180 range? You said he's got about 11 inches head and that guy is about an inch above his chin...
[Editor Rob: he could be 5ft 10. Really Nairn can look from 6ft 6 to 6ft 9...depending on how well he stands. His size might be catching up with his joints these days.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Nov/14
207cm, Rob?
[Editor Rob: not last time I seen him, he looked shorter, maybe his bulk has indeed began to effect his height a bit or at least his posture, I think I managed to get him back when he was still looking near 6ft 9...]
Oanh said on 22/Oct/14
Rob, on Wik it says he is 6'10 3/4". Do you think that's possible out of bed height? When this photo was taken, what would you estimate his size(weight) at? I think he looks around 425lbs.
[Editor Rob: that photo was from july 2013. I'd be stunned if he measured that tall, he looks shorter than that. Although imagine if you shrink nearly 2 inches from out of bed to night, that would cover a bigger possibility of being 6ft 10 out of bed...]
Sam said on 20/Oct/14
Yeah, I imagine his weight would catch up with him at his height easily, I wouldm't blame him for sitting.

6'9-6'10. How some see 6'8 is beyond me, but whatever maybe it makes you feel better. He has 13-14 inches on Rob easily.
Ali Baba said on 19/Sep/14
Perhaps he's having some health issues and that's the reason for the chair. That would make sense with the way you described his issues with walking.
Danimal said on 18/Sep/14
Can't believe this man is only 38 years old (all the white hair). Easily 440-470 pounds imo.
Emil 182.5-184.5 cm said on 14/Sep/14
How was he in person, Rob
Seems nice judging from interviews
[Editor Rob: he seems nice enough with fans, although I have to question why he is sitting down for some photos.

There were like 30 people wanting a photo at a last con I seen him at (takes about 5-10 minutes max) yet he asked for a chair again. One of his traits that got him GOT is his size, so I didn't quite understanding why he's been wanting to sit down....

Would be a bit like me having a celebheights event and for 'photos with rob' me sitting on a chair. Pointless.]

miko said on 27/Aug/14
Rob, if you put Nash and Nairn under the stadiometer who do you think would come out taller?
[Editor Rob: Nairn struggles a bit with walking, as I say the guy this year can look like a 6ft 6er, but I've seen him stretching up and he can still be near 6ft 9 I believe under the device, both probably close enough it is hard to pick.]
Editor Rob said on 26/Aug/14
Actually his posture last few shows is up and down, he goes from looking more 6ft 6 up to 6ft 9. Nash and Tyler Mane can give a bigger impression as they have better posture and can hold the 6ft 8 range easier than this guy.

As a side note, even with only 25 people at last event wanting a photo (about 5 minutes really) he still asked to sit on a stool for the shots.
Concerned 181 cm said on 2/Aug/14
Why would a person who's already over two meters tall lie about their height, and paint themselves as even taller? Especially by two whole inches?

@Lorne
I liked the expression "G'ing"
Maybe one day we would read on dictionaries something like
To G:to act like Glenn Cunningham (known as G),to boost one's height,against all sense and under all circumstances.(By extension:all people claiming 5'8)
Lol,That would be the ultimate tribute to G's long career as a 5'8,what do you think?
Who knows if the site becomes very famous,this could happen.

Kristian is an awesome looking big lad. I recon he looks 6'9" but i wouldn't put 6'10" out of the question too if he stood as straight as possible. Either way, a great giant from a great show !
Arch Stanton said on 30/May/14
@lorne. To be fair a lot of people aren't going to argue with him at claiming that! Guys this big can get away more with exaggerating their height!

LOL at 20 million over 7' maybe 10,000 tops. 1 out of 200,000 adult men seem reasonable.Outside BB fields you will almost never see someone that tall.20 million at 6'3 and 200,000 at 6'6 is possible.Wonder where this guy got his source.
Samsont said on 18/Mar/14
I just stood next to Kristian tonight. His head is massive. I am nearly 6'2" and he easily had 9 inches on me. He is a really jovial and nice guy. Stood and took pictures and selfies with fans far longer than any of the other cast outside NYC hotel in the cold. Laughing and enjoying the folks the whole time.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Mar/14
Of course certain people earn a living chasing celebrities around..... :-]
[Editor Rob: yeah, it can be lucrative...good when child support come calling!]
Lillo thomas said on 24/Feb/14
Kristian look 6'8 easily with rob. I see 1 feet difference the two.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Feb/14
For me your photographs of ageing celebs are the most valuable on here in that they give an indication of much height they've lost like David Prowse and John Rhys Davies. Of course a photo with Cruise or Stallone would be the holy grail of celeb height photographs but you're unlikely going to meet them and have a photo, it could set you back a mint!!
[Editor Rob: I can't chase celebs around, I only want to meet them when they want to meet fans...of course the one time sly did his convention he charged over 300 bux! insane...]
Arch Stanton said on 22/Feb/14
It seems that way, which makes it difficult to judge height!!! In all honesty a lot of your photos Rob cause half the arguments here because they see a celeb in a photo with you at a dead cert 5'8.25 with a certain posture or camera angle as it was taken and assume that it is exactly how it looks in person. Of course it's great to have the photos taken with celebs but you see what I mean about how some photos can convince some of the posters here that you're too generous or whatever.
[Editor Rob: or some photos can make celebrities look a bit taller. believe me I want to get the best photo I can...ultimately adding these photos is part of the site, and if sometimes it's not quite showing the difference exactly as I thought, it still shows I've been there and seen them...not just beside myself but with other people.]
Ali Baba said on 22/Feb/14
[Editor Rob: it depends on the photographer's height, the lense, you could appear at the chin of a 6ft 6 man, above it or a few inches below it!]

Rob, if they were side by side that shouldn't make a difference. Of course if you move one or the other forward or back, even slightly, it can make a pretty big difference. Camera perspective is a tricky thing.
Arch Stanton said on 20/Feb/14
OK yeah, slight misjudgement, lip level for a 5'8" range vs 6'4 range. At 6'6" Rob would be maybe a fraction under your chin Ali?
[Editor Rob: it depends on the photographer's height, the lense, you could appear at the chin of a 6ft 6 man, above it or a few inches below it!]
Arch Stanton said on 20/Feb/14
Not in the pics I've seen like George Romero, Ryan McPartlin etc Ali Baba. I also think if Nairn stood next to a stadio 6'5" would come lower than where you think. You don't honestly think he's only an inch taller than you Ali?

@Arch Stanton

Remember rob is dropping over an inch here...
6'8 range is totally possible even rob didn't rule out that. I personally think he's 6'8.75 or so but rob already dropped him from 6'10 so he may anger him if he drops more off!
Arch Stanton said on 9/Feb/14
Rob what would you guess for his out of bed height? I could actually buy 210-11cm, as I say a guy like him could lose as much as 2 inches I think. I think the position of the photograph hiding the legs and his head is fooling a lot of people here. I'm sure in person he actually looks easily 6 ft 9. His head length and shoulders are surely markedly longer than average. If you consider that Rob generally comes to the bottom of the nose of legit 6'4" range guys look at the height gap between the end of the nose and where Rob's head comes on him. 6'7"-6'8" is ridiculous.
[Editor Rob: 6ft 10-10.5 is possible out of bed...from seeing nairn and nash this year, it's tough to say who would win in a height staredown]

@5ft10 guy, Nah, he's at least 6'8.5". Probably 6'9" right out of bed.

I'd dispute that, I think he could actually be 6'10" range out of bed. A guy as big as him could possibly lose as much as 2 inches in a given day.

Sam not only Nairn, McCann and Whyte. You have Waldau and Dance over 6'1'' also Sophie Turner is a pretty tall girl and what about Gwendoline Christie at 6'3''? Clive Russell is 6'6'' same as Nonso Anozie and Ian Glen is also at least 6'0''. In general it is indeed a tall cast.
sigge said on 5/Feb/14
He has at least a foot on Rob, def not under 6'8 and probably around the listing.

Yeah, beyond Peter Dinklage, lots of the other main cast of Game of Thrones is not that tall, i.e. Kit Harington, Sean Bean, Alfie Allen, Richard Madden, Emma Clarke, etc. Certainly, guys like Nairn, McCann and Whyte raise the average though.

Seriously Emil? He looks a good 4 inches taller to me.

#15 has a camera angle advantage and therefore he looks taller han 6'5 next to Rob.
Nairn, however, has a large head and the camera is probably straight. And Rob's estimation is the one I trust the most, just like you.
Lorne??? said on 26/Sep/13
Ok, 6ft9 is believable, only because of his head size. Looking again, he's taller than Cudmore, but not by much. Nairn looks nearer 6'8 a lot.
Sam said on 20/Sep/13
He does seem to have short arms for his height, but that's only when you look and compare them to Rob's. I doubt their wingspan is such a massive difference like there is the height difference. At least the size of his head makes up for it.
Arch Stanton said on 19/Sep/13

Lillo thomas said on 18/Sep/13
Well arch stanton 6-7 is very tall and 6-8 is almost a giant in the usa . 6-9 -10 is the start of giant range in the USA. 6-6 is very tall but not a giant . 6-6 guys will look short next to real giant guys like 6-10 or 6-11. I was posting that because some people are saying in this site 6-6 is a giant .
Emil said on 16/Sep/13
@Rob, he looks no more than 1-2 inches taller than #15

@ Lillo. I saw an interview with Greg Davies the other day and he said "6 ft 7 and above is officially classed as a giant and I'm 6 ft 8". This guy is more than just very tall, he's a giant clearly, look at the size of his head!! He's just not 7 ft + freakiness.
Lillo Thomas said on 10/Sep/13
6'6 isn't a giant . Lol 6'6 is very tall .
Sam said on 10/Sep/13
I would say any guy over 6'10 would be considered a giant, just the same as anyone under 4'10 is considered a small person. An average height of 5'10 is bang in the middle of that, so a whole foot taller/shorter makes the most sense to me, at least that's my take on it. This guy is borderline giant, however what difference does an inch make when you're that big? In person I am sure he could easily pass as such. The guy looks fricken' huge.
avi said on 9/Sep/13
@Ice says on 8/Sep/13

Ice not true!!! My arms aren't the same as my height. Them explain how 6'5 basketball players can have 6'10-7'0 arm span. Wingspan has a deviation if at least 6 inches. I agree Nairn's arms seem to be 6'1 guy's.I explained why I think this could be.
@LG69
no giant is 6'8+ if you have to duck doors you're way bigger than most. Maybe 6'7-6'9 is giant territory and 6'10+ is giant? Rob said 6'6 to 6'7 is start of giant territory. Used to be 6'5-6'6 but obviously more people are 6'3-6'4 range nowadays so it pushes it up a bit

Arm length is not really proportional to your height, but yes, Nairn is quite particular. But he sure looks like a nice fella

Of corse arm leangth is porportional to height !!

No, it isnt. Arm pit to fist is not proportional to your height. Do you ever watch boxing? It is very common that a 5'6 boxer has the same arm length as a 5'9-5'10 guy and verse visa. Look at Floyd Mayweather. His arms are the same length as Wladimir Klitschko's even though Floyd is 5'7 and Wlad is 6'5-6'6. Finger length is more proportional to height, arm length isnt.
miko said on 9/Sep/13
More a weak 6'9 than a solid one. I'd say someone like Kevin Nash would edge this guy out.
Lorne said on 9/Sep/13
This is much better. He can certainly look no more than 6'8, but I think he could measure near enough 6ft9, especially afternoon time.(a guy like this could lose 4cm in a day)

@Lo sgozzatore says on 6/Sep/13
You yourself said that seeing with other congoers he really didnt look over 6'8! Anyway, 6'9 is much better than 6'10. I wouldnt be surprised if a guy like him woke up at 6'9.5 and dropped to 6'8 by evening...

Yeah I still think he'd go about 1/4 over my 6'8.25 doorframes I think he can seep below 6'8.5 on a bad day. I would have dropped him to 6'8.5...maybe Rob will if he sees him again Rob seems open to 6'8.25-6'9 its so hard to pin such an enormous giant of a guy down to the very .25 of an inch, but we're making progress!

LG69 said on 8/Sep/13
@JimB, I had a classmate who was 6'6". He was the tallest person in our school, but I wouldn't consider him a giant. Tall? Yes. Giant? No. There is another website that specifically lists giant's as 7 feet or over. In fact, Andre the Giant is on their list--just qualifying at 7 feet. Although, I think Andre would qualify as a giant even if he was 6'11" because of his sheer girth.
Lillo thomas said on 8/Sep/13
The listing is now accurate . This guy looks like a legit 6-9 . When he says 6-10 , he is claiming his height in shoes .

avi said on 5/Sep/13
@ice and Fred
I think my wing span is 5'10 and I'm 6'0. I think when it happens means you're not supposed to be that tall and outgrew your potential. Like this guys arms stopped first (like most people) and he was probably supposed to be 6'5 or less and he grew almost 4 more inches due to some fluke or hormones/additives in the food. He may not be genetically tall. Wonder how tall his relatives are.
But feet are 11.5 so that's accordant to my height. Weird...
JimB said on 5/Sep/13
An adult over 6'6" is a giant so does it really matter whether he's 6'8" or 6'10"? I thought it was only us shorter and average height people who are to be singled out to be made to feel insecure about our height?

Ice, you're right. His arms are bizarrely short for his height. They're only slightly longer than Rob's. Look at this edit I made: Click Here

I knew a guy who was like 6'2 with size 7 feet. So I guess you will get the odd really tall guy with short arms for his height.
MBU said on 4/Sep/13
What you don't see is the size of his head. His head is so much larger than a normal one, that a lot of height is in his head, giving the impression of being shorter, just like with Andre the Giant.

Blaze said on 2/Sep/13
nairn is 207cm I think. he is a giant. imo 6ft is where tall starts, 6'4 is where huge starts, and 6'8 is when giant starts. 7ft is where alien starts. I'm 6'5 so if I was a full grown adult i would be called huge but since I'm 15 I'm called a giant

Do you realize rob is dropping over inch in height? Look at 6'1 big John picture with Nairn. He's under 6'9 but 6'9 flat would be a gift. He can claim it though cause no doubt in morning he is strong 6'9

@Phantom my stepdad is 6ft 5 1/2 6ft 5 or over is very tall but i dont think its quite considered as a giant yet, 6ft 7-8 is when giant terriotry starts i believe. For Narin i think 6ft 9.5 is what he looks.
Lillo Thomas said on 31/Aug/13
Phantom a legit 6-6 or 6-7 guy is huge but I would describe this height as very tall height . When a guy is about a foot taller than average is definitive a giant .
Fern194cm-192cm said on 31/Aug/13
I strongly believe he is 6,8.5 at best. Not even a legit 6,9 here. Rob, are you gonna downgrade him?
Phantom said on 31/Aug/13
@Lillo Thomas

Anyone over 6'5' would probably be considered a giant by most people outside of the NBA in the US.

Figuring that this big John guy is 6'1", which looks right given some of the other pictures he has compared to celebs, I'm seeing maybe about 6'8.5" in the photo with Kristian. I just don't see 9" there.

Call me crazy, but Kristian looks closer to his claim with Rob than he does with Big John, the top of Big John's head reaches Kristian's tip of the nose,and that's usually 6 inches! Now, I know that estimate is of no use here because Kristian's head is bigger than normal so his face features are larger, IMO he is 6'8.75".
Ras said on 30/Aug/13
I think 6'8-6'9 is closer.
avi said on 30/Aug/13
@blaze
Haha but Rob is actually weak 5'7 here! But he could be 6'9 I agree but he's probably 6'8.5

@Rob
Would you say he has 7 inches in Big John or 8? 7.5 looks tops right?
[Editor Rob: between 7 and 8 yeah]
Lo sgozzatore said on 30/Aug/13
Rob, if your friend is max 5'8 and he's able to reach Nairn's chin, how can Nairn even be 6'8? I mean, could this guy's head be a foot long? I dont think so. Maybe, he's just having bad posture with your friend?
[Editor Rob: the 5ft 8 con goer has a small head, kristian's I'd put about 11 inches long (not including any double chin, but just to end of chin bone)...so he can definitely look no more than about 6ft 8 with people, there was a 5ft 7 guy who looked about the same as me in his photo.]
Lillo Thomas said on 30/Aug/13
I don't buy this guy at 6-10 with Rob but he could be a legit 6-9 . By the way a legit 6-9 is in the giant range . 6-9 6-10 is the start of giant in the USA.
Sam said on 30/Aug/13
I think up in this range, it's hard to estimate. This guy coul really pass for around 6'9" but not over. Probably needs a slight downgrade.
Jack said on 30/Aug/13
Wow this is a pretty ridiculous comparison, he makes Rob look like a legitimate midget
Blaze said on 29/Aug/13
that right there is me with 5'3 ppl and I'm 6'4-6'5. he is a legit 6'9 or 10
Ali Baba said on 29/Aug/13
His head looks to be right around an inch longer than Robs by using the screen on my phone to measure them. His head looks bigger than that because it's also wide. Because of the size of his head and where Rob's friend comes to I would put him around 6'8" or a touch over. I would accept Red's 6'8.25" guesstimate.
avi said on 29/Aug/13
@Rob
Is it also possible Big john may not be standing as straight as Nairn?
[Editor Rob: I think he probably stood better with a very tall guy like nairn, but I didn't see that one, I did see him standing with Clive Russell and didn't slouch or anything...although clive wasn't standing at his tallest with him (or with anybody I saw really).]
Bard said on 29/Aug/13
Some people seem to including his double chin as part of his head...his actual chin starts about 2-3 inches above Rob's head. I'd say at least 6'9.
Larc 74in said on 28/Aug/13
Definitely 6'8 range Rob, Peter Mayhew is still taller than this guy.
avi said on 27/Aug/13
@Lo sgozzatore says on 26/Aug/13
6'8 range is probably closer... Remember Rob is like a 170 guy here because he's loosing 3 cms in posture... And Nairn really doesnt look over 6'8 to me. Remember that Peter Mayhew has 2 inches and plus over him. And Mayhew is listed at his same height

good point 6'8.5 is fair i think maybe claim 6'9 but he'd be a weak one. i think you are right he LOOKS 6'8 zone but may measure 6'8.6 or something weird. if that Big John guy really isnt over 6'1 then you are right he could be strong 6'8 at most, look here: Click Here i think you are on to something he may be 6'9 in morning and 6'8 by mid afternoon

@Rob
[Editor Rob: I'd have to add 3cm to my height as I'm dropping height in my back here.

what's probably more interesting might be another guy I know who isn't over 5ft 8, look at him standing normally beside kristian Normally with Nairn...up to his chin]

so you would probably go over his chin! this proves it i think if this guy is 5'7.75 only.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Aug/13
Height difference does look very similar with Kingma. I'd guess 6'9.5" too. But seriously anything under 6'9" much less under 6'8" really is too low. If you really think this guy is weak 6'8" you really have little idea of height.
Lo sgozzatore said on 27/Aug/13
Where i see rob at the bottom of nairn's head? You read the post or not? Rob posted a photo of a con goer who isnt taller than him and stands straight (unlikely rob) and easily reaches his chin! I highly doubt this guy is over 6'8 range, cant buy 6'9 and forget about his 6'10 listing!
[Editor Rob: yeah the other con goer is 5ft 8]
Radd said on 27/Aug/13
This guy has a so massive head , very likely he is anywhere between 6'9 and 6'10.

Just looked at the photo with big John and I 100% agree with you. He looks weak 8 taller at best. 6'9 tops for this guy 6'8.5 minimum.
Joey said on 26/Aug/13
C'mon Rob this guy is 6'9" at most.

He reminds me of that really tall big guy that Rob put up for a height challenge... He looked much taller than he really was. I think most of us are overestimating. He looks more like a weak 6'8" to me but I can't find any good pics.
_____________

rob did say he looked similar height to michael kingma and having met kingma in person then 6'7 range would not be correct
[Editor Rob: both guys look close yeah]

6'9".

Lo sgozzatore says on 24/Aug/13
He isnt taller than you? Thats what i'm saying! If he reaches his head and his head is max 11 inches, 5'8+11 inches is 6'7, maybe 6'8 with good posture. How the hell can he be listed 6'10? Then if you want to have a 6'10 listing for him, that's fine. But there's noway in hell he's a big 6'10 guy

And where do you see Rob at the bottom of his head?? Rob needs at least 2 inches to reach the bottom of his chin!! So that makes it 13 inches at least!
avi said on 25/Aug/13
Lo sgozzatore says on 24/Aug/13
If Rob stayed up straight he'd barely reach the chin so let's say fine 6'8 1 foot taller since head is 11 and Rib would come 1 inch under chin if matched Nairns posture. So 6'9 tops seems right maybe weak 6'9?

@Rob
Yeah so its noticeable difference but you didn't say would you be 1 inch under His chin if you'd stood proper?
[Editor Rob: possibly. For a big guy he did stand decent in a lot of the photos in this shoot...better than when he walked about.]

Nairn's posture isn't great. Clearly he aint as low as 6'8" or under. He has an easy foot on Rob, I see about 13 inches in the photo, and remember that Rob isn't a flat 5 ft 8 either. You could argue 6'9" or 6'9.5" but he definitely looks too big to "only" by 6 ft 8. Scott Schwartz is around 6 ft 8 and this guy looks bigger.

On that pic he looks at the least like 40cm taller.

Maybe he's 6'10 out of bed or maybe he's slouching here... Judging from this picture, he just doesnt look 6'10 to me

@Rob
So how much are you dropping? If you stood like him you'd be only 1 inch under the chin I think...? There's maybe 2.5 inches between your head and chin.
[Editor Rob: I thought maybe 3cm,

actually today I took a photo with an actor and dropped a bit to show the difference in a photo if someone else of similar height (i.e. Jenny) was there: see here]

I can't see this guy under 6'8". That said, I was kind of surprised when when the last height challenger was only 6'5.3" or so.
[Editor Rob: the last height challenger was 6ft 5.25 on the stadiometer, so really 6ft 5 and 1/8th because of the error.]
Alex 6ft 0 1/8 said on 24/Aug/13
Sometimes hard to tell when the height difference is that much. The guys head looks to be over 10 inches in length. I wouldn't go below 6'9 for him
Emil said on 23/Aug/13
Unless his head is 35 cm long I cant see how he's 6'10, Rob?
Connor 184cm said on 23/Aug/13
I used to think Narin could be 6ft 8 but nah i think 6ft 9.5 is likelier if measured on a stadiometer or tape measure he would be at least 207cm so not far off his claim.
Arch Stanton said on 23/Aug/13
Rob he's Northern Irish.
Lo sgozzatore said on 23/Aug/13
If that guy is a 5'8 and he reaches Nairn's head, let's say Nairn has a 11 inches long head (i doubt that's longer), how the hell can this guy be 6'10? I mean, 5'8 + 11 inches is 6'7...
[Editor Rob: the guy isn't taller than me]
vegas said on 23/Aug/13
rob you have probably seen this guy around (seeing as he has attended the same events) and if so what is your estimate on his height, looks 6'0.5-6'1 to me in the most of the photos (though shorter and taller in some) Click Here
[Editor Rob: big john isn't a guy I speak to, but yeah I seen him around for years and he always looks like a 6ft 1 range]
