Comment on the Height of Stephen Fry

Rob he looked more 6'3 next to Hugh on an episode of black adder I saw recently
Editor Rob: from what I've seen, when Fry stood tall he looked over 6ft 4 on that show.

In the "Gadget Man" Stephen Fry was definitely taller than Clarkson.

6'05.00" Peak height. Now he might be closer to 6'04.75".
Gaz said on 11/Jan/15
he claimed 6'4 and a bit on QI this is probably about right
Vibram said on 26/Nov/14
I think he downplays his height. He was easily taller than 6ft3 Prince William by 1.5 inches, and he is nearing age 60. 6ft5 peak is very fitting
James B said on 28/Jul/14
Could pass for 6'5
mike said on 11/Jun/14
yeah 194 or 195 love him as a narrator!

Stephen Fry has a house fairly near my parents and I have briefly spoke to him before. Very friendly, he certainly towered me when I last saw him however he had footwear advantage which made him about 6'5 compared to my 5'11 in plimsol style shoes. I'd say if the two of us were bare foot there wouldn't have been as much of a difference I think nowadays he is about 6'4 maybe 6'3.75 at his low.

"Stephen Fry height: 6ft 4.75in (195cm)"

He claimed 6ft4.5 and 6ft5.
Ben said on 31/Aug/13
Does anyone have a picture of Fry standing with Jeremy Clarkson when he appeared on Top Gear? That would be a good reference. They are both supposedly 6'5".
Woody said on 23/Jul/13
I met him once and I would suggest legit 195cm, same as Fish from Marillion.
avi said on 17/Jul/13

I once met Mr,Fry entering the toilets of the Groucho Club, London as I was leaving them in 1994. I'm 6'3" (1.9m) and he towered above me, stooping to enter the washroom. As I looked up with a cheery "Hello there!" he passed by me. I'd say he was good 6'5" including his hair.

I wouldn't dispute that he was towering but you aint 6 ft 3. He wouldn't look much taller if you are really 6'3". He looked near 6'5" next to Prince William.

As someone said, he's said before on QI he's 6'4, and he repeated this again during a recording I was at earlier in the year - looking at him compared to the other guests there at the time, some of whom I've met and have a relatively good perspective of how tall they are, I'd say that looked just about spot on.

rob i met antiques expert charles hanson at his auction house in derby i am 5 feet 11 with my shoes on and was eye to eye with him charles is not even 6ft. rob is 6 feet 5for stephen possible
[Editor Rob: he's said 6ft 5 a few times but also 6ft 4.5, which I think he is/was if standing at his tallest]
Tommy said on 7/Feb/12
He's been consistent with his claims. I've heard him claim both 6'4 and 6'5 on QI. I guess he knows he's 6'4.5 and sometimes rounds up, sometimes rounds down. He even said 6'4.5 himself once. He does look considerably tall. I guess it's possible he's gone down a fraction.
georgie said on 6/Feb/12
Roger may mean Rupert Maas - 6' 7" tall art expert on the Antiques Roadshow.

As to Steve Fry, he said that he was 6' 4" on QI.
megan said on 6/Feb/12
There is no fooling me, there is no way in the world that charles is 6ft 1 stop talking rubish, he is taller than fry in the picture he is 6ft 6, you the liar not charles.
[Editor Rob: so the last 3 comments (megan/Graham/Roger) are the same person.

I'll say it again - on an Antiques Road Trip episode me and Jenny watched last year, Charles stated he was about 6ft 1.]
Graham said on 6/Feb/12
Where an earth did you get 6ft 6 from for Charles Hansons height, if he did quote that on the roadtrip that is a lie, I do appear to recall it quoted on his personal website and the bargain hunt website, the experts heights are all exagerated David Harper says he 6ft 3 he is only around 6ft 0. In a interview last month Tim Wonnocott see( wonnocott on Austrialian B H) said that charles was only 6ft 1 ( 186cm), he cannot be 6ft 6. Dan snow is 6ft 6 and on celebrity roadtrip was about 5 inches taller. I think that Charles has told misinformative to millions of viewers. Stephen Fry is taller than charles. It is the truth
Roger said on 6/Feb/12
Stephen is around 6ft 5 he looks that height, on a bargain hunt famous finds there is a photo, which I am afraid I do not have of him standing next to Charles Hanson the tall expert, he is 6 feet 6 inches tall, and fry was a fraction smaller so 6ft 5 for fry. John Cleese was definitely Hansons height in peak 6ft 6
[Editor Rob: I remember Charles stated his height on an Antiques Road trip episode as 'about' 6ft 1.
doctorabrasiveenena said on 25/Jan/12
My good mate is '6"5 but very gangly a lot slimmer than Stephen so he looks taller but considering he's much heavier set even after he lost weight he always looked a good '6 "5, maybe he has lost half inch as hes now mid 50's.

FRY: '6"5 PEAK
CLEESE: '6 "6.5 PEAK
FRY: CURRENT '6 "4.5
Alex V. said on 12/Aug/07
Yeah Rob, during that episode, Cleese looked cleary taller than Fry but close to the end, Fry putted a better posture and looked as tall as Cleese, (maybe Cleese is/was 1 or 2 cm taller).
Alex V. said on 11/Aug/07
I have the Fry & Laurie episode with John Cleese (Third Secret Policeman's Ball), Fry and Cleese are about the same height and Laurie is maybe two inches shorter.

[Editor Rob: I watched one episode of jeeves and worcester the other day, hadn't seen that for ages really, but noticed Fry in those days had damn good posture and could make laurie look 6ft 1 on some occasions.]
Harleigh-x said on 25/Jul/07
To 'Anonymous'.
He is not 5'11,,
No way. If you see some stuff he's been in or look up a vid on youtube, he reaches the top of the door frames, mostly.
And as for Laurie, well he's only a couple of inches shorter than Fry.
I'm only 5'0, so to me these are tall men, lol.
DTA said on 5/Jul/07
thats just ridiculous, if laurie were 5'9" then the other cast in House must all be 5'5" and below which is clearly not the case. Omar Epps for example is NOT 5'5" or below... but hey whatever makes you feel good about yourself mate
Anonymous said on 18/Jun/07
Fry รจ a mala pena 5 11.
Laurie 5 9
Atkinson 5 5
the celebrity LIE about heigth!
yesterdey I look Leonardo Da Vinci, and its 5'6' more!
BigT said on 9/Jun/07
i cant believe hes so tall and i never noticed lol
Tom Brown said on 4/Apr/07
In the 1997 film Wilde, where he plays Oscar Wilde, he is standing next to Ioan Gruffudd and Jude Law in quite few scenes, and he really towers over them by a huge margin. I'd say this 6'4.5" is bang on. Incidentally, Law and Gruffudd look a similar height to each other.
Cathy said on 24/Feb/07
When I saw him in Jeeves and Wooster I thought he only looked 6 foot 3, but I suppose I'm wrong. Regardless, any way you look at him he's tall (good thing!)
G-MANN said on 13/Jan/07
6'4.5" is pretty much correct. He's always been properly tall. During one BAFTA ceremony he described himself as 6'4" and a bit and when Tim Robbins came up to present an award they were about the same height. They were also in the 1994 film "I.Q." together.
Link said on 27/Dec/06
Fair ebnough rob, but if i can ive found a QI episode where he says 6'5"

Though that could be from just being lazy and didnt want to bother with saying 6'4.5"
6'7-footer said on 29/Nov/06
I reckon 6'5.5
andrew said on 10/Sep/06
6'5" at least. In Jeeves and Wooster he towers over Hugh Laurie.
David Welsh said on 1/May/06
I met him one and because he's bulky, he comes across as at least 6'6". He absolutely towered over me. However, he's said he's 6'4.5" so that must be right.
Link said on 25/Mar/06
On idbm or whatever bloody way round it is he is stated at 6'5"
1/2" makes little difference really.

either way-hes a very tall guy

[Editor Rob: has stated his height on tv awards show before, '6ft 4 and a half'...]
Gonzalo said on 10/Mar/06
He was a bit shorter than Tim Robbins, so I guess 6-4 1/2 seems accurate
ColinG said on 25/Jan/06
Naomi, that's the best mis-type I've seen for some time. "Stockinged feed." It conjures up some pretty strange images!
Naomi said on 30/Nov/05
He once said at start of Saturday Night Fry that he was "6"4 in my stockinged feed". But I've heard his height reported at 6"5 elsewhere.

[Editor Rob: he's shrinking!]
