Yes I should have done! I wasn't smart enough!

@ Nik - It's easily done! You could have blamed it on your autocorrect! 😋

😡 Correction Time! 😡
I have spelt John Thomson's name incorrectly. Apologies for that!

Well this is further evidence that Sean Harris can undertake any acting role of his choice! It is clear that he is able to display a wide range of emotions, hence the reason he can play the part of someone good as well as a baddie! Fascinatingly, Shirley Henderson, Paddy Considine, Peter Kay, and Ralf Little, also starred in the film '24 Hour Party People". I am off to see if they have all got pages when I have finished this message!
How short do you reckon John Thompson is then? Oh and has he got a page? I will go and have a gander!
This is one of the films that Sean Harris is most famous for so its good that you have given this a mention!

@ Nik and everyone who appreciates good acting: I saw him yesterday afternoon playing a rocker! He was fantastic! He outdid everyone else! The film is '24 Hour Party People', and it's absolutely strewn with stars! (I didn't realise John Thomson was that short! He's just one of them!)

@ Sandy Cowell - Hi!
It's good that Sean Harris doesn't just play the role of baddies and the fact that this is the case will be a positive thing for him, I am sure he wouldn't want to think that he could only play those sorts of characterrs, but as we know what that is simply not the case because he is a good all round actor! Like you said the film "Isolation" is the perfect evidence that he can play any acting role of his choice, and very well too!
I will tell you the person who invented the name "Inglourious Basterds" really ought to learn how to spell! The name of this film is certainly way different to the name of the film "Serena", which is a nice and tranquil sort of name! I think that Serena is a nice word and name!
One great thing I have found out about Sean Harris is that his role in "Southcliffe" won him the honour of being the best actor in the British Academy Television Awards in 2014! Well done to him for that!
Also he will be a puppeteer/ventriloquist in the 2017 film Possum, I don't know if you would be interested in seeing this film?
It will be interesting to be able to vote on Sean's height again in a few weeks, I will go north of 5'10' again but will I give him an upgrade? We will see when the time comes!
Finally I can tell you that my Mum and I will be looking after Jasmin today, and that she will be staying with us tonight!

@ Nik - Hi! I watched Sean's film last night called 'Isolation' and it was truly like a breath of fresh air to see the human side of him! I was so impressed as you see him put his arm tenderly round his girlfriend, and when they get disturbed at an unearthly hour by a desperate farmer worrying about a calving cow, he goes along to help, despite being warned earlier to leave the land. He lives in a caravan and is a traveller.
The film is a horror, but it's beastie-based, showing what can happen when Man fiddles too much with nature! My heart went out to him when he sheds tears and shows genuine fear. This film shows that Sean can play any role he chooses, very well at that! 👌
The film containing Michael Fassbender is ready to buy on the 3rd July and it is called, 'Trespass Against Us'. It's a 2016 film and I'm looking forward to it - of course! I'm fond of Michael Fassbender as well, ever since I saw him in 'Inglourious Basterds'! (funny spelling, I know!). The two actors together should make for compelling viewing!
I'm so glad your Mum enjoyed her Birthday! I am also fond of carrot cake and it does seem like a healthier alternative, but then birthdays are only once a year!
Cheers Nik! 🙋👍

Yes it's good to hear that so many people in the film industry speak so highly of Sean Harris, this shows that he is a good person as well as being a good actor! He plays the role of so many unhinged loonies because he must be good at it! However it is great that he looks to be flexible and that he is keen to play the part of people who are totally different to this, because it will prove that he is a good all round actor, plus he will enjoy playing the part of a good guy too! Playing the part of a Policeman in the second "Red Riding Trilogy" film is a fine example of him playing a good guy, it is a welcome change from playing the role of a scoundrel! In fact playing the part of a Policeman would suit Sean Harris in my opinion, it wouldn't be a bad idea if he did this more often!
You will have so many opportunities to take in Sean Harris's height and good acting skills by the time you have finished seeing all of the films that he is in, so happy viewing!
If you type in "Fassbender Cotillard Harris" (no speech marks) in the google box, then click on images and find the 17th image (from left to right and down) you will see the picture of just 3 people, Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, and Sean Harris! Sean Harris looks very tall, in fact over 6ft compared to these two celebrities when you bear in mind how tall they are! You won't regret it!
My Mum had a good birthday thank you and she appreciates your birthday wishes! We had a quiet day at home, it was raining cats and dogs! We had some carrot cake too at tea time!

@ Nik - Hi Nik!
I can happily eat my words tonight about Sean Harris always playing someone psychotic! You see, I knew I had once caught on TV part of a film, in which everyone was speaking in Irish accents, which showed the NICE side of the man! I found it yesterday online and it arrived today!
It is called 'Isolation', and just before the start of 'Emmerdale', I put it in my TV and watched the trailer. I thought, "That's definitely the one!"
Then I went on to see the extras, where I saw the makers of the whole project speak very highly of Sean's acting, saying that he is known for playing the roles of unhinged people, but they obviously saw in him something different, not to mention Sean himself wanted a break from that type of role - and who can blame him?
The same is true in the film 'Serena'. The makers of that film saw the good in him! Hooray for that, and double hooray that so many people in the know agree that there is something special about this actor!
The Fassbender/Harris film will be available to buy as from the 3rd of July! Yes, Nik, I am aware of its existence and looking forward to it, but my oh my, have I got a great many things to see of his until that day dawns, or what?
Sean plays alongside Paddy Considine, another supremely brilliant actor and writer, in the second 'Red Riding Trilogy' film, which just so happens to be about the Yorkshire Ripper, and the persistence of one particular policeman to catch the b*****d! Sean and Paddy are members of the police force in this!
That just about covers what I have found out about Sean since last time and more besides!
Cheers Nik and enjoy this very special family day - your Mum's Birthday!

Hi Sandy! No problem mate. That's really good to hear, I hope those films don't take too long to arrive! Yes he is good at playing "toe rags", but like you said the whole idea of his performance, when playing Ian Brady, was to show how much of a scum bag Brady was, so with that in mind you can forget all about loathing him playing for Ian Brady.
Now I will tell you something interesting that you could do, go onto google and type in "Michael Fassbender Marion Cotiilard Sean Harris" in the google box (you don't need to put their names in speech marks) and then click on images, then go to the photograph of these three together (near some stairs and it's one of the photographs fairly near the top of the page of images) and compare their heights. Also bear in mind that Michael Fadsbender is down as 5'10.75" and Marion Cotiilard is down as 5'5.5", lets see what you think when you compare those two celebrities with Sean Harris!
Also have you seen a film recently starring both Paddy Considine and Sean Harris? I am asking this because you may get a clue as to how tall Sean Harris is if you compare him with Paddy Considine, I will tell you, Paddy Considine is 5''9.75" by the way!
It would be good to see Sean Harris in the films that you recommended to me, so I will make a note of them!

@ Nik - Hey, thanks Nik! I did feel a little silly for putting an extra quarter-inch on because a dirty deed in Sean's performance the other night in 'the Goob' made me laugh so much! Since then, as you know, I sat and watched 'See No Evil' again, taking in his height far better than the first time!
Now listen to this, mate! I have ordered a couple more films of his, including 'Serena', and a Daphne Du Mauria* drama and another series with him starring, so my own interest has also escalated! The fact is, I haven't ever seen him in anything lousy, so I am really quite excited about it all! I felt rather guilty to have loathed him after seeing him play Ian Brady, but that only serves to show that his performance showed us what a swine Brady was, which was the whole point!
Then afterwards, he kept popping up in other things I watched - and they were all so good that they were buyable!
Sean is listed as 6ft in his Wikipedia, and I don't think it can be far from the truth!
I was chuffed that a guy called Phil wrote on the 14th of this month that he thinks Mr Harris looks 5ft11.5! I thought, "He he he - yes! I don't need my eyes testing as badly as I thought! At least someone thinks he's that sort of height!"
One thing's for sure though, Nik! I'll be that much the wiser as to Sean Harris's true height when I've worked my way through that lot, which I shall do with great relish!
I seriously do recommend that you watch 'Harry Brown', 'Creep', and 'Deliver Us from Evil' (which is, I'm 99% sure, a Hollywood production AND based on fact!), and that's just for starters! Happy viewing, Nik!
* Spelling? It's probably wrong, I'm afraid!

@ Sandy Cowell
Rob will be in your good books then, won't he? You must be excited about seeing your copy of the TV Drama series "Southcliffe", the fact that you haven't seen a single episode will be even more of a good reason to look forward to it coming!
Yes it is great when someone achieves something in life by working their socks off for it, plus he is living his dream of being an actor so he is doing his job for the love of it!
Now onto his height, I have seen a lot of quotes on the internet of around 6'0" for Sean Harris, although I have seen a few 5'10" quotes as well! No you shouldn't regret putting 5'11.5" for him, like you said if he was 5'10" he shouldn't be bending down to speak to someone who is only one inch smaller!
I have also seen pictures of him with Colm Feore, who is 5'11.5", and they look about the same height. Furthermore I have seen that he is taller in comparison to Sheridan Smith than what a 5'10" man would be!
Sandy Cowell said on 15/May/17
@ Nik - Yes, indeed it is a compliment! I must say that I was - and still am - very excited that Rob added Sean Harris to celebheights!
This morning I ordered a copy of the TV Drama series 'Southcliffe', which is on par with the 'Red Riding Trilogy'; I haven't seen one solitary episode, but it has excellent write-ups!
It certainly is good to see someone who worked so hard for something he wanted very badly, succeeding, as with this guy!
I watched 'See No Evil' again with my brother yesterday, and I had a great opportunity to compare him to the other male actor who stars in it - 5ft9 Matthew (also known as Michael)
McNulty. They went into the back yard together for a pee and a chat, as you do (!), and Sean was actually looking down in order to speak to McNulty! I didn't notice that the last time! There were other instances as well, so I don't regret putting 5ft11.25, with a quarter inch bonus for making me laugh in 'the Goob', because I don't think you look down to speak to someone who is a mere inch smaller than you! Cheers Nik! 👍

@ Sandy Cowell @ Rob
Sandy, I take it that is compliment to Rob!
He is a great addition to this website because of his determination and commitment to become an actor, he has worked for his acting career, plus he has even been signed up by Hollywood!

Facially he looks like he could be related to Paul Bettany though not tall..
Guy10do said on 13/May/17
First time I've seen him in rogue nation, tbh he gave more of a 5'9" impression.
Sandy Cowell said on 13/May/17
Right! I'm back now and itching to let rip....
Firstly, I think Sean looks tall in this picture! Not 'almost tall', but 'tall', as in over 5ft11.
I saw him in 'The Goob' the other evening, playing a rather unsavoury character as usual! His hair had blond highlights this time, which means I've seen him play dark-haired, blond-haired and red-haired, which seems to be his natural colour, judging from his beard and his delightful performances in 'The Red Riding Trilogy', where he was unmistakably ginger with the occasional beard, but for 'the Goob', he was all muscle with tattoos to boot - quite impressive, when I think of the unfortunate specimen he played in 'Creep'! Looking at this far from unflattering picture, I would say 5ft11.25, but as he made me split my sides the other night by shamelessly going into his van in broad daylight for a ***k, he can have a quarter of an inch extra!
5ft11.5 it is then!
Sandy Cowell said on 13/May/17
Ha ha ha! Rob, you good, compliant boy! You lovely human being, you! This calls for a celebration!
I'm going to put the kettle on! See you in 10! 🍻
