Would'nt it be easier just to wear shoes with 2 or 3 inch heels then instead of the skyscrapers she usually wears?

You will notice in any photograph Sophie always stands with one hip out and the opposite knee bent, to reduce 2 - 3 inches from her height.

I don"t think she is under 5'9
She looks to have grown and she has that tall look in most of her scenes, even rivaling most of her male costars
Manuel said on 8/Aug/15
I would believe she is 6 foot

5-10 and still growing
hal said on 27/Jul/15
Lol at the people saying she's 5'7". Sophie Turner is at least 5'8.5", and that's a fact. But I think she's 5'9". These "met her" stories are BS. You downgraders are just pathetic sometimes.

She's 5'9 all-out. At the second season of GoT she was little bit taller than lena headey (she's 166) so I think Sophie was 5'7 or 5'7.5 already at the age of 14-15. And she has grown since 2011-12 for 1.5-2 inches. I think strong 5'8.5 (174) or maximum 5'9 (175).

Sophie is not smaller than 5'8.5.

@oathkeeper, girls usually reach their adult height by the age of 15, so even if Sophie is a late bloomer, she's done growing. I saw your post from 11th May. In the video Sophie is clearly 1" taller than Gillen, but the footwear is not shown properly. Both of them are wearing boots, but I'm sure Sophie's boots have more heel than Gillen's.

Heels for women on TV shows has a very simple logic. Heels tilt the pelvis forward causing the butts and boobs to like bigger, given a more curvy look to the body

Looking at Dan's post, the height of the girl on the right is definitely not given anywhere in the article, but I would agree that Andini is 5'3 or 5'4 tall (5'4 is unlikely). My best estimate for Sophie would also be 5'7 or 5'7.5

I went through the earlier posts, I think Rob is definitely taller than Sophie (comparison with Gwendoline Christie). Though the difference may not be much (0.5/0.75 inch)

One thing always to be kept in mind is that we girls have a curvy and slender bodies. This really makes us look taller than we actually are
oathkeeper said on 30/May/15
@Dan
Where are you getting the height of "unknown person XYZ" from? I have done some research and there is no mention of her (Andini Ria's) height. It's also a picture from July 2014. There are more recent ones on her twitter account, but we cannot see the footwear.

Puberty is different for everybody, some people grow into their late twenties.

Jourdan Dunn is 6' according to this site, which I will always choose over others.

@Coolgirl781
[Warning: Contains Game of Thrones season 5 spoilers ] That might be true, but that was over a season ago in King's Landing. Since she has returned to Winterfell we have a good scene with Aidan Gillen where they wear similar shoes (see my post from May 11th). A good 1" gap is visible in all shots.
Dan said on 28/May/15
here is a picture of Sophie with a fan. Click Here

the girl on the right is 5'2 or 5'3 wearing shoes with 3 inches of heels. Sophie is wearing flats of around 0.5-1.0 inch heel. Sophie is 1 inch taller than this girl. this puts Sophie somewhere around 5'7.

just look at the picture people, just look at sophie's body sturcture, does she look like a 5'9? Nope! something more like 5'7/7.5. keep in mind that she is a woman, women have slender and curvaceous bodies making them look taller.

here is another picture of sophie with the same fan, from the same day. Click Here
Coolgirl781 said on 28/May/15
I think Sophie is around 5'7 or a weak 5'8. She is always wearing heels at events so she appears to be very tall. 4 inches is the least that brands make for heels with 5 inches being the norm. She's a teenage girl, probably obsessed with heels, just like me

She appears to be 1-1.5 inches taller than actors like Alfie Allen or Adian Gillen but she wears heels. In an interview she said that she always wears heels with costumes. She said
"... I kept tripping in that dress. I can't even tell you how many times I tripped up the stairs. It was so embarrassing. I wear heels with all my costumes as well, and this dress was super long, super heavy. I kept falling".

Dan said on 28/May/15
Okay 3 things:
1. Girls start puberty before boys and finish earlier as well. Most girls are done growing in height by the age of 16-17, so its very unlikely that Sophie has grown any taller than she was in 2013. maybe a few millimeters, but that is negligible.

2. Jourdan Dunn is around 5'10 and not 6'.

3. If you observe the picture carefully, Sophie it at least 3 inches shorter than Jourdan, and Jourdan isn't ever standing completely straight like Sophie.
oathkeeper said on 26/May/15
The "Another Me" premier and the ELLE Sytle Awards are both from 2013, the NYC premier is from early 2014. She could've grown since when.

Let's get some fresh pictures in. Like these from the May 4th MET Gala: Click Here Click Here

She's standing next to the 6' tall Jourdan Dunn, if they wear the same heels (Sophie does not wear a plateau Click Here ), I cannot see a 5" gap there. 5'9" would be my guess.
Ron said on 25/May/15
At this point I would be open to 5'7, as people have said she is somewhat slender and if she's been wearing heels in a lot of what she's been in that will tip the scales in her favour, especially seeing as she spent a lot of time with Gleeson, Gillan, Rheon and Dinklage - heels would give her enough to appear just taller than he other two, as she does. I'm only open to it though, I still think she's more likely 5'8 or even 9.
Dan said on 25/May/15
so putting all that in perspective, Sophie Turner is 5'7, not 5'9 as people say. she has a slender body and she is a female, so she appears to be taller than she actually is
Dan said on 25/May/15
another example here, look at this image Click Here
it is from the Another Me premier. Gregg Sulkin is 5'8, add another inch to his height due to the shoes. Sophie is again wearing 4-inch heels and stands 2 inches taller than Gregg, at 5'11. so if you subtract her heels, you get 5'7
Dan said on 25/May/15
also, take a look at this picture. Click Here

Sophie with Jack Gleeson. Jack is 5'7, add 1 inch due to his shoes and he stands at 5'8. Sophie is 5'11 next to him in 4-inch heels. so if you subtract her heels, she is 5'7
Dan said on 25/May/15
Sophie Turner is 5'7. My sister met her at the Los Angeles airport. they took a picture together and both are of the same height. both were wearing the same kind of sneakers

Ron said on 22/May/15
Something else to add: in the latest episode she does not look that much taller than Iwan Rheon at about 5'7.5. She's taller, it's noticable, but no more than two inches maximum, I'd say 1.5 perhaps. Again, you can't really tell but from the way she walks it looks to me like she's wearing a small heel, and the sound dubbing guys certainly dubbed in a distinct heel-clacking sound every time she moved across the stone floor. Say Iwan has a good boot with about 1 inch of lift and she has a small heel of aboutn1.5inch lift that puts her pretty squarely in Robb's estimate. Certainly no taller than 5'9.5 total maximum, and unlikely to be any shorter than 8.5
Ron said on 16/May/15
People here saying she's above 5'9 or even as high as 6'! I'm sorry, but I find those numbers laughable! She's tall, yes, but not that tall! Gillan is about 5'8, give or take, and in the most recent Thrones series she looks a maximum of an inch taller than him, in scenes when he's wearing relatively flat boots and she's in at least 1.5 inch heels, or strongly heeled boots (you don't often get the chance to see her footwear, but you can tell by the way she walks that she's got some heel height there that Gillan doesn't.
She's also the same height as Asa Butterfield in heels that were at least 3 inches tall. Say that makes her about 6'. Butterfield is about 5'11, though personally I doubt this, I think he's a strong 5'10 but his slender frama, big hair and always big-geeked shoes favour him. In big shoes he should be approaching 6' too. So Turner can't be much above 5'9 if that. So she's tall, but not excessively so like some here suggest! I bet if you flat-footed her and Gillan she'd have at most a 1cm advantage
oathkeeper said on 11/May/15
I thought I wouldn't be able to show the scene I mentioned, turns out the official Game of Thrones YouTube channel did that. Click Here
hal said on 11/May/15
I think she's at least 5'9". I highly doubt she's below that. She's a tall girl, and very pretty.
oathkeeper said on 7/May/15
Ed2882 is right, in Season 5 Episode 4, she appears to be more than an inch taller than him. They also wear similar footwear and the floor looks even.
Ed2882 said on 4/May/15
Sophie has definitely grown since the start of the show. In Season 4, she started just under Aiden Gillen's height (174 cm) but is now noticeably taller than him at the start of Season 5 (by 3-4 cm). It looks like the cameramen are doing a lot of trick shots to make Aiden appear similar in height to Sophie, but it's clear Sophie's height should be upgrade to at least 177cm. Check out this GoT shot of Aiden and Sophie for comparison. Click Here
Calvin said on 4/May/15
When they started filming season 1 she was 14 and already listed as 5-9. Based on her comparison to the grown men in the show, it's very clear she has grown over he time on the show. I went to an event after season 2 and met the cast. I am a 5-5 man so I'm used to it, but I was taken aback by her height in her heels. My guess was 6-2 in some 4 inch heels so 5-10 at the time. My guess is 6-0 now
jeb79 said on 20/Apr/15
She was 13 or 14 when they actually shot the first season and has definitely grown over each season. Looks 5'9" or 5'10"
Chris said on 31/Mar/15
She makes manlets cry in their dreams
172.7 guy said on 13/Mar/15
She seems to have grown since the first season of GoT. In scenes with Aidan Gillen, she is almost eye-level with him, and she may only have a slight heel advantage in the shoes that she wears. Given that he's about 176cm, I'd say she's 174-175cm.
BGee said on 14/Jan/15
Strong 5'8 or 5'9 max.

A lot taller now.

With a 3 inch footwear advantage, she's maybe 1.75 inches taller than Richard Madden here. I think this listing is spot on. If anything, she isn't any lower than listed. Same with Madden.
Patrick said on 25/May/14
Donīt trust people, rob.
In game of thrones she wears heels, so he can have an inch on gillen, who also wears boots, but not that thick.

you seldom see woman wihtout heels in game of thrones
oathkeeper said on 24/May/14
Well, I can confirm pretender's comment, she looked taller (1-2") than him. However, the footwear situation is unclear and there is snow on the ground.
the pretender said on 23/May/14
apparently she towered Aidan Gillen who is listed 5'9" with at least an inch in the last episode ... i would say 5'10" or 5'11" range .. what do u think rob ?
[Editor Rob: I've not watched recent episodes yet but in s3 she looked quite close to his height]
littlesue said on 5/May/14
They not average size heels!! they look like they have a inch platform at front and by the tilt of her leg I would say they about 4.5 inches
Anton said on 15/Apr/14
Looks taller than 5'11.75 Liam Cunningham in average size heels, perhaps she's more like 5'9? Click Here Click Here
Sam said on 9/Apr/14
I agree that Rob looks taller compared to Gwendoline than Sophie Turner but the potential uneven ground and posture may come into play. I still think 174 cm is possible for Turner.
steven said on 8/Apr/14
That pic is actually pretty good. Rob, you seem slightly taller standing next to Gwendoline then Sophie. Do you think it`s the uneven ground that makes her slightly shorter?
[Editor Rob: the ground probably isn't quite perfect]
Balrog said on 29/Mar/14
Accurate listing, she deserves that slight upgrade.
Pedro said on 27/Mar/14
Here is a fan-picture where she stands in flats next to Gwendoline Christie: Click Here
[Editor Rob: in person Gwendoline looks what she says, 6ft 3, I mean I come up to the end of her nose myself...]
Balrog said on 26/Jan/14
5'8.5''
Pedro said on 23/Jan/14
Here is a recent picture of Sophie, Isaac and Maisie. I don't know about the size of their heels, but the height difference between Sophie and Maisie looks gigantic: Click Here
Balrog said on 14/Jan/14
5'.8.5''
Pedro said on 20/Nov/13
Her stunt doubles in "Another Me" and "Barely Lethal" are both listed in their resumes at 5'8". So I think that it is very likely that Sophie is around that height as well.
T2N said on 20/Aug/13
I thought she seemed at least a solid 5'10". She always looks like a giant on the show, especially next to her female co-stars.
Girl170cm said on 9/Aug/13
I don't think the girl's still growing. Girls reach their adult size around 13 years old and after that we don't grow much more. She is 17 already. But she is definitely above standard height in women, so nothing to worry about.
183CM said on 3/Aug/13
I'm pretty sure she is 5'9...and growing

With 5'6 Lena Headey, though footwear might be different.
She looks a solid 5'10.5" next to 6'3" gwendolyn Christie
Sam said on 10/Jul/13
It seems the consensus is to do the upgrade on Turner, Rob.
Sam said on 24/May/13
Rob, is this just an estimate of her height. I agree with the concensus that she is nearer 5'9" than 5'8".
[Editor Rob: she might be 174cm]
Sam said on 23/May/13
Is this from a quote or an estimate, Rob? I agree with the concensus that she's a bit close to 5'9" than 5'8".
Balrog said on 21/May/13
She looked 3in taller than Natalie Dormer.
Kira said on 29/Mar/13
Yes yes shes 5'9 8 ish but how much does she weigh???? about?
Balrog said on 15/Feb/13
Rob she's looking close to 5'9''. Any chance she grew I little bit more? She's 16 I think.
Steven said on 14/Feb/13
Click Here Most recent pic with other actors from the show
Ahboh said on 29/Jan/13
In the pilot she seems 1 inch shorter than Madden (Robb) whom in turn seems 1 inch shorter than solid 5'10 Sean Bean (Ned)

Considering that she was 14 when the pilot was filmed and usually girls don't grow much after that, I think she is truly 5'8/ 5'9
Chiara said on 18/Nov/12
How do you get 5ī9/10 feet from this picture? She definetely only looks 5ī8. (Which is still a great height for women i think)
Cliff said on 17/Nov/12
She's actually a pretty legit 5'9."
