How tall is Scott Adkins

Scott Adkins Height

5ft 10in (178 cm)

English Actor best known for roles in the Undisputed sequels, and films like Expendables 2, The Legend of Hercules and Zero Dark Thirty. He once said on a fansite forum "I'm 5' 11" and when I did Undisputed 2 I was 14 st or 91kg" and in Kung Fu Kingdom: "I'm 5ft 11in (1.80m) tall and weigh 12.9st -13.5st", although on imdbResume he has put 5ft 10 and 182 pounds. I met him in 2014 at mcmExpo (my sneakers were about 1/4 inch thicker).

I'd previously put him at 5'10", but in "Undisputed 2" he looks taller than Michael Jai White, who is 6'0" - 6'1". Possible 5'11"? Any thoughts?

Click Here.

Here is a picture of him next to a 6'2" Marko Zaror in "Undisputed 3", does not look 4 inches shorter.

5'9.5. His hair is at 5'10"
Importer said on 1/Jan/17
The undisputed movie series was so underrated, or am I wrong? It taught me to never let go of a path you chose being surrounded by obstacles and believing in freedom.
Jordan87 said on 29/Dec/16
@ Darth Vader,

His hair is at the 5'10" Mark, how can he be 5'11"?
Darth Vader said on 18/Dec/16
Rob, sorry but I don't see a height difference of only two inches between both of you. I see almost three inches height difference at this pic. So Adkins could be a weak 5'11".
alex said on 13/Dec/16
Rob 178 is without shoes?
Editor Rob: alex, yes I think Scott would measure close to 5ft 10 on the nose without shoes.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Nov/16
Rob, how likely is 176cm?
Editor Rob: Rampage, as much chance of me winning a fight against him...
c-mo said on 18/Nov/16
rob do you think he would hold 178cm at night or would he drop a little under it at the end of the day ?
Editor Rob: at worst a little fraction shy of 5ft 10 I'd guess at night.
Josh Jeffords said on 30/Oct/16
Guy passes for 5 11 or 6 foot on screen doubt he sinks below 5 10.
He is lanky so makes him look taller but he compares tall with tall guys.
5 9 is a stupid jealous poke not even funny.
Needs an upgrade 5 10.5 maybe leo height weak 5 11.
Johno said on 27/Oct/16
Low height would be around 5'9.5 or 5'9.75 but his day average would be more 5'10.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Oct/16
5ft10 is a max for him
Morningheight 182cm said on 3/Oct/16
I really thought this guy was like 5'11 judging by the picture above Rob is right again 5'10 for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/16
Out of bed: 179-180cm
Before bed: 177-178cm

5ft10 is an acceptable listing overall
HHS said on 1/Sep/16
177cm with chunky shoes.

He's Nothing more than 5'10 (178 cm) he's the same height as Jason statham who's 178 cm

Guess like 5'11" n scott is 1 n only my fav.martial arts actor
jajamen said on 1/May/16
Rob, In Undisputed movies he did you think he was 179 or 179.5 by stretching?
Editor Rob: I'm not sure he really looked over 5ft 10
Ayush said on 27/Apr/16
More like 5/9.5 feet.The best action star
c-mo said on 23/Apr/16
this guy is one of the living proofs that 5'10 is a good height
Jedi Master 5'11 said on 3/Mar/16
Ryan Reynolds clone, only shorter.
abcd said on 15/Feb/16
177 cm.
Johno said on 27/Jan/16
I think i have really been foolled by the hair, 5'9.25 (evening).
Johno said on 24/Jan/16
Perhaps i was being a tad over-zealous with my estimation, 5'9.75 might be a bit more accurate.
Johno said on 21/Jan/16
Accurate listing --- 5'10.
S.J.H said on 5/Nov/15
5'9.75 and 5'11 in dress shoes or something there he go 5'10 in morning
MsKitty said on 24/Aug/15
I LOVE him! He is one of my favorite action stars. He's the real deal. And he's gorgeous... *swoon*
Lmeister said on 13/Jul/15
On screen he looks like a 5ft11 guy. He is clearly taller than Sly, JCVD and Jason Statham in Expendables 2. BTW Rob your acting height is 5ft10.5 and martial arts height is 5ft9, for other pro sports 5ft10 :)
[Editor Rob: I'd only claim the height measured, but then you can't control what others list you at, so you could end up with taller or even shorter listings if an actor!]
youssef 5'8 said on 30/Jun/15
He easily looks 178 but i think i's because he's a muscular big guy ,he looked clearly shorter than darren shahlavi in photos and in their episode together in metal hurlant by 3-4 cm,shahlavi is listed 180 cm on imdb but back in 1997 he looked shorter than gary daniels (listed 178) here or max same height as him with thick footwear so 178 max for darren shahlavi is fair and adkins clearly shorter can't be taller than 175 (5'9) may be even shorter which is shocking ,still the best martial arts star of our time
sean said on 5/Jun/15
is 177cm possible rob?
[Editor Rob: there is a chance he could dip a small fraction under 5ft 10 yes.]
Ron said on 15/Apr/15
Though admittedly thinking about it I was wearing converse with no notable heel, so maybe 178cm is more realistic than I thought. I'd place him at 179cm myself though, I've never really noticed him in any films, didn't know who he was before tonight, but having been working next to him for an hour I'd say at least strong 5'10, maybe pushing 10.5
b-mint1994 said on 12/Apr/15
He's struggling with 5'10" in the picture.
JK said on 20/Mar/15
5'9.75
thox said on 14/Feb/15
But Rob how can it be 1.5 to 1.75 inch range if your eyelevel matches with middle of his nose? If it was 1.5 to 1.75 wouldnt your eyes be matching the tip of his nose or close to the bottom of it?
[Editor Rob: 1.5 inch and a good quarter inch because of footwear so closer to the 2 inch is what I'm trying to say.]
thox said on 14/Feb/15
Rob, how much difference is in this pic, 1 inch?
[Editor Rob: I think somewhere in 1.5-1.75 range]
5'7 says said on 5/Feb/15
Not more than 5'10.
Bryan (Queenslander) said on 4/Feb/15
Rob would he edge out Manu Bennett or roughly the same ?
[Editor Rob: Manu visually looked about an inch bigger than Adkins, but there is a footwear swing to account for that - Manu had near 0.5 more than me and I had a fraction more than Scott.

I don't think they would be much different at all between them.]
grimmm said on 24/Jan/15
I think thats about right..... BOIKA BOIKA BOIKA!!
Anonym123 said on 16/Jan/15
178 or 179 thats possible ...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Oct/14
Looks 5ft9½-5ft10 range. I like Undisputed and he's a gifted martial artist but there's something rather self-serving and arrogant about his demeanour. Maybe appearing in Expendables 2 has something to do with it.
evil said on 17/Oct/14
Rob , how tall do you think is TURBO from the U.S.A in undisputed 3, I think he more or less the same height as scott
[Editor Rob: yes mykel can look quite close with him.]
TJE said on 7/Sep/14
Always looks big on screen, but he's hardly taller than JCVD. 177 is a better fit.
matt said on 15/Aug/14
He has said 5'10 and 5'11, Most likely the 5'11 is with shoes and 5'10 without unless he is just guessing, judging this pic no way in hell he is 5'11 maybe around 5'10 mark
sabot said on 12/Jun/14
"Gabe2 says on 24/Apr/14
5'9 range is all I see. Shave off half of his hair and there is no more than 1.25-1.5 inches between them. "
Exactly. Click Here (Pic by Red183)
177cm max seems to be more accurate.
James Crowley Maximus Meridius said on 2/Jun/14
Rob how much does weigh i reckon he looks about 13 stones bang on in that picture i heard he is a nice guy he may be average height he is not the sort you want too mess with you and get into a fight with.
[Editor Rob: High 12 stone maybe.]
Byron T. said on 11/May/14
He's one guy who looks taller onscreen. I easily had him pegged for being 6'0.'' I was way off, LOL.

Rob if this Guy is légit 177-177.5cm its good to see Arnold vandamme and sly height
Ally said on 11/May/14
177 cm
pataan19 said on 10/May/14
Hey Rob, if you were to make a listing for Marko Zaror, what would you put his height at???
[Editor Rob: the height he claims 6ft 2]
Peyman said on 28/Apr/14
he can't be over 177cm, but not lower too
& that certainly doesn't make van damme 176
he looks a good inch shorter than scott.
scott is 177cm so van damme would come out as a 174-175 man.
exe said on 28/Apr/14
i agree with gabe2. and there is no way this guy was 91kg in undisputed.
look at the length of his arm. it's the same as rob's. from shoulder to elbow - same distance. if he was 2 inch taller than rob, his arm should have been longer and it should have been very noticable. especially for someone that trained all of his life. notice he is wearing a jacket also. his arm might just actually be shorter than rob's.
Gabe2 said on 24/Apr/14
5'9 range is all I see. Shave off half of his hair and there is no more than 1.25-1.5 inches between them.
chrisssss said on 22/Apr/14
Wow Rob! I love that picture! :D it just looks awsome, and i agree, a solid 5'10 legit 178cm guy.
mudcats said on 21/Apr/14
Doesnt look taller than 5'9
Mario said on 21/Apr/14
His face bears an uncanny resemblance to Ben Affleck. Only, Scott would have made a better choice for Batman considering his amazing ability to lose himself in character, and he is an amazing stunt man.
avi said on 20/Apr/14
@maio
i think its more than just 1.5 its like 1.75. but who knows!
avi said on 18/Apr/14
@maio
could be 1.7 inches but no less its close to 2 inch difference. I think a legit 2-2.25 is me and my friend who is 6'2.5ish. Its touch more than this. Remember back to back can sometimes make someone look taller or shorter depending on a lean in or illusion of some sort. Best to judge are face to face side by side is okay too.
Dmeyer said on 17/Apr/14
Look 176.5cm plus 0.6cm shoes 177cm hé could be 5 ft 9.75 vandamme is defenetly 1-2cm smaller
the shredder said on 17/Apr/14
Rob , Dolph looks no more than 6'3 with him
the shredder said on 17/Apr/14
Going by him at 5'10 , Sly can still pull off 5'10 and Van Damme is closer to 5'9
kyuss said on 15/Apr/14
5-10" max,another Schwarzenegger height bump up.
avi said on 15/Apr/14
@Maio says on 15/Apr/14
For sure you were at your low and he has an extra inche of hair, no doubt about it.
I give only my opinion. I think, also considering the shoes advantage, he's not 2 full inches taller than you! He looked there around 3,5 cm taller, with the advantage shoes we go to a strong 4 cm!
Usually if someone is 2in/5 cm taller than you, the point of his chin would be as tall as your mouth...

that is generally true but depending on an angle. this guy may be 5'10 but a weak one. remember some people have longer head or chin structure too. i agree it can look a weak 2 inches here and remember rob's 1/4 advantage.
Alex 6ft 0 said on 14/Apr/14
Id say it looks no more than 1.5 inches. He's just shy of 5'10
Brad said on 13/Apr/14
As listed. He'll say 6 feet soon.
Emmett said on 12/Apr/14
Pushing your height up to 5'11 from 5'10 doesn't make sense to me. They seem to thought of as average heights pretty universally to me, I don't think most people see a distinction between them. I understand trying to claim 6' something, because it sounds tall. I also get trying to push your height up to 5'10 from 5'8 or 5'9. I don't think that's really short, but sometimes people talk about those guys that heights like they're tiny, and obviously no one wants that label.
Alex 6ft 0 said on 12/Apr/14
No way 5'11. Rob has a 1/4 inch footwear advantage which is very minimal. I don't think I see even 2 inches. More 1.5 inches. Weak 5'10 as 5'9.75 Id give him
John said on 12/Apr/14
Definitely not 5'11, he is a good 5'9 1/2 inches tall
Kourosh177cm said on 11/Apr/14
5'9.5 like me. 176-177cm range
Mario said on 11/Apr/14
Wow. Shorter than I expected. Didn't picture him as having "average" height.
Tommo said on 11/Apr/14
At first glance based on eyelevel I thought a weak 5'10, but after looking at the amount of hair and Red183's comparisons...I'd say he's probably a bit below the mark.
MD said on 11/Apr/14
5'11"? lol He's barely looking 5'10", here. I'd say a weak 5'10".
the shredder said on 11/Apr/14
Looks like him and Mel Gibson would be the same
avi said on 10/Apr/14
fair listing
Hypado said on 10/Apr/14
5ft 10in (178 cm)

One of my favourite actors.
Connor 184.5-185cm said on 10/Apr/14
5ft 9.5 is possible, he looks near enough 5ft 10
lelman said on 10/Apr/14
Looks a weak 5'10" to me, 177-178cm
Andrea said on 10/Apr/14
Looks solid 2 inches taller than Rob? Where? When? He looks a bit taller than Rob, maybe one inch plus the shoe difference, he could be a good 5'9 guy, like 5'9.25-5'9.5! All this just based on the photo, maybe he looked closer to 5'10 in person...
[Editor Rob: I do think he looked about 5ft 9.5, plus give him 1/4 inch more and then you are near your 5ft 10 claim...I wouldn't want to argue with him though, I think he might know a martial art move or two ;)]
Connor 184.5-185cm said on 10/Apr/14
Definetly not 5ft 11, looks solid 2 inches taller than Rob in the pic, 5ft 10 looks dead accurate hed probably only be 5ft 11 in the morning, then again maybe hes claiming his morning height? i bet the lowest hed be in the evening would be 177.5-6cm hes a flat 5ft 10er.
Andy said on 10/Apr/14
Great shot. Same posture, little in the footwear. Scotts big hair is a bit deceiving. On first glance it looks like the difference may be nearer 3 inches but on closer inspection Robs eyeline is above the point of Scotts nose and thats with Rob tilting his head down. 5'10" is spot on.
Khalid said on 10/Apr/14
On other sites he's listed as 5'11 but wow this photo shows a proof of him being 5'10 ,
hitman said on 9/Feb/14
1.78' m
pataan19 said on 5/Feb/14
Yeah, I guess he could be a solid 6'2", and never dips under! It's just that, he seems to have at least 4 inches on Adkins, and his posture seems a tad looser than Adkins in the photo of them together! My guess would be a strong 6'2" for Zaror, and maybe 177cm for Adkins!
pataan19 said on 3/Feb/14
My guess is 6'2.5" for Marko Zaror, what do you think Rob?
[Editor Rob: Marko says he's 6ft 2 and 210 pounds of solid muscle...]
pataan19 said on 3/Feb/14
Hey Rob, then how tall do you think Marko Zaror would be, judging by the pic of them back to back???

Looks 179
Nomadd said on 15/Aug/13
@fa In morning... maybe?
so said on 12/Aug/13
Marko Zaror is 185, so yeah Scott is 178,its correct
Nomadd said on 26/Jul/13
Today 178 cm (5'10) probably.
juan said on 17/Jul/13
178 is correct
Kenny said on 15/Jul/13

@mike there can be no photo of scott and bruce together because bruce died in 1973 and scott was born in 1976!!
mike said on 7/Oct/12
no way he is 178 cm , he is max 174 cm. i saw a picture of him and bruce lee. he was max an inch taller than him
mesinadenaro said on 1/Oct/12
@Vinn: related to your comment: It's written on an official site that Michael Jay White- did not war shoes at all when he was near Scott. So the only stupid and inacurate comment belongs to you. But don't worry it's a common thing to write down post while being uninformed. I keep my guess 176-178 range. Anyone with other pics- to help us figure it out what's scott real height?
leonari said on 25/Sep/12
To me he does look a full 180 cm. If he is indeed only 5'10 he comes across as the tallest 5'10 guy I have seen on screen.
Have you taken a closer Look at him Rob?
Dmeyer said on 19/Aug/12
179cm wouldnt surprise me
Alphaseti said on 2/Feb/12
Scott Adkins is 5'11(1.80m), Jason Statham is a good 2inches shorter at 5'9(1.75m) and Marko Zaror is about 6'1"(1.85m). In the film Undisputed3, Zaror was made to look 3-4inches taller at 6'3-4" as to give the illusion that the match would seem uneven favoring Zaror.
MMAfighter said on 24/Jan/12
I think he's between 1.77-1.81
Newbee said on 23/Jan/12
Just look at the picture again. The camera is not leveled. Use a ruler and you will see the real difference.
leo said on 3/Jan/12
If scott adkins is 5'10", then zaror must be 6'3" or 6'4" because there is at least 5 or 6 inches between them judging from the back to back photo.
andy said on 2/Jan/12
Zaror is consistently listed at just under 6'1" and if this is true then Adkins is more like 5'9. The photo of the pair of them is an excellent one for judging height. Standing back to back, same distance from the camera, both barefoot( i would assume) and both holding similar postures. Scotts eyeline bein at markos mouth would suggest about a 4 inch difference. However i have also seen Adkins picture with Statham and he does indeed look every inch of 5'11". If this picture is the more accurate it begs one question. What muppett measured zaror at less than 6'1"?. Or does statham have something hed like to tell us. The plot thickens kids. Stay tuned
andy said on 31/Dec/11
Marko Zaror looks like a tall dude in undisputed 3 but hes consistently listed at just shy of 6'1". If this is correct then Adkins aint 5'10 let alone 5,11. Adkins eye level is just below Zarors mouth which would make him about 4 inches shorter, and thats a solid picture to make comparisons. Back to back, same distance from camera, both barefoot( i would assume). So if Zarors listing is right then Adkins is more like 5'9".
hey said on 1/Dec/11
unless michael jai white is less than 6'0, i would bill scott adkins as 5'10-11....if you look at his body and build he would appear a lot stockier if he was actually 175-176 cm
mesinadenaro said on 20/Nov/11
:) i Would kindly ask you before writing an idea - please make sure as much as you can that your information has a backup- something reliable behind- on which you make your presumption! It's written everywhere that he was wearing shoes while filming with m. jay white, while michael wasn't (due to height difference). Also 174, 175 cm, is also not accurate. I can't blame you not guesing the correct height. Also in the picturre with jason statham he is wearing - football shoes with nits in them. My guess is: somewhere in the range: 176-178 maximum. Not 180 cm (5'11'') as he stated.
Vinn said on 12/Sep/11
he is a few cm's taller than jean claude van damme and he is shorter now than first... so i think max 1.76...

Marko Zaror is 6'1 for what I've seen so maybe Scott is 5'9 or 5'9.25 at the most and not 5'10.

Would you call this "much" shorter Rob? Click Here
I mean, relly, Adkins ist over his eye-level... that cant be called much shorter.... or?
You think 1.75m is possible for Adkins, like some peaople her wrote?
KV said on 1/Jun/11
He said he was 91kg w/c is more than 200lbs.
MD said on 30/May/11
For him to be 196 lbs and look as big as he did in that movie, he can't be anything over 5'10", for sure, unless I'm thinking about the wrong movie, and he's gotten bigger than he was.
KV said on 30/May/11
He is 5'11"

LINCON said on 15/Apr/11
His height is 5'10" & that is exact.
Nazer said on 16/Feb/11
im saying hes 6ft when you put a bunch of tall mother****er on a movie you cant really tell the different between height.... Marko Zaror is maybe like 6'4" thats a 4 inch gap between Adkins and Zaror...
Marko said on 15/Jan/11
"Marko Zaror is listed as 184cm on many websites. In this picture, Scott Adkins is much shorter, looking like 176cm. Click Here"

This picture is definetly the best proof that Scott Atkins may be 176 - 177, in the movie "Undisputed 2" looks much much taller looks about Michael Jai White's height.
R said on 13/Jan/11
everything is possible on camera... dont forget that... and belive me he is 1.75 or 1.74...

Ya may be coz marko zaror towers him in d final fight..but not much diff between michael jai white in undisputed 2,who claims to be 6 ft..so am pretty confused!!

Savio not true he is 1.75 or 1.74

He s 5'11 n its an average height of europeans..due to his physique v il doubts his height..
