Wow, this is another shocker! I thought Michael Gambon was a solid 5'10". Did you take a growth hormone Rob? LOL. No but seriously, this is why your site is relevant...it gives you the truer height of these celebrities than what other sites like IMDB would offer.

I think I don't look 5'11 in this photo guys :) he does have position advantage though
Editor Rob: yeah in this photoshoot the photographer is standing directly on Gambon's side.

Do you measure people you meet in person or do you eyeball it?
Judd said on 10/Feb/16
I would say 5'9 today and 5'10 (max 5'10.5" being generous) at peak

He looks a weak 5'9 here...
Rob, did he really lose 2 good inches at "only" 75?
My grandad is nearly 80 and he hasn't lost more than an inch, i guess!
Editor Rob: he does look a guy who didn't exactly do pilates as an adult.

I think he has shipped a fair amount by mid 70's.

Hard to tell... Whilst he's never struck me as a short guy I don't think he's quite this much. I say this purely on the general feel I get from his movements and the way he looks on set. He looked about 2-3 inches shorter than Matt Smith, who I believe to be barely above 5'11, and considering neither are posture models I don't want to take too much away based on that. I also have a friend who posed for pictures with both Gambon and David Bradley in the same costume. Bradley I believe to be a prime example of a 178cm height: good posture, reasonably slim and as such can often appear "tallish" on screen. Gambon doesn't pull this off, and whilst my friend was up to about Bradley's eyeline she was closer to Gambon's hairline.
Whilst I'm not sure about his peak height, I do believe that today Gambon may stand at a fair 5'9, dipping below sometimes, but also perhaps getting a bit higher too when he stands straighter.

His peak height might have been about 5ft 10 but as I met him 2 years ago, he was no more than 5ft 8.5/9. Im about 6ft 2 with a forhead of 4.25 inches and he was at least 1.5 inches under my eyebrows

I'm not sure, but I think he might be at least 5'11". In Harry Potter Gambon is shorter than Rickman and I think he's about 1-2 inch shorter than him.

yeah Tubbs that sounds right as Craig is 5'10 or 5'10.5"

6ft for Gambon seems reasonable, he is about an inch maybe inch and a half taller than Daniel Craig in Layer Cake. I was watching that movie the other night and was waiting for a decent shot of them together to gauge each others height, it took ages - anyway 6ft, as I have already said seems spot on.
