Alex Kapranos Height
5ft 11 (180.3 cm)
UK Singer from Franz Ferdinand. Initially I thought he looked near 6ft, but on second look, doesn't appear quite that big.

I would hazzard 6ft but certainly no taller. Quite confused by Leo's post because to me in that picture he looks far closer to Alex Turner's height and really, really quite distinctly shorter than Casbalancas even when taking into account the fact that he is standing behind him and is a little hunched.

Well, sorry for posting again, but... I should say that a certain factor may have helped him to look taller... (02:06 at the video below)
Those shoes apparently increases many inches for him. Anyways, I still mean that he's not only 5' 11".

I met him at the backstage on a concert in Brasilia. He's definitely NOT 5' 11". I am 5' 8", and he was really like 20 cm taller than me. My brother is 5' 11" and he was even well shorter than Alex Kapranos. He's probably near 6' 4". I mean it. There's also a picture of him with Alex Turner and Julian Casablancas, where shows him clearly taller than both. My brother and I have also a picture with him. Please, it's totally feasible to correct the information posted. He's NOT 5' 11".

I met him after a show. I'm 5'7 and was wearing flats...he towered over me. He's 6ft minimum. he's a very nice man :) can i brag here? he kissed me before i left. love this band

Very skinny so makes him look taller. I would have said around 5'11". Is it me or does this guy look like a cross between Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen who played Le Chiffre in Casino Royale and David Tennant?

he's a pointy-healed shoe wearer. I'm not convinced he's a genuine 5'11.

Yeap I'd say that is right I stood next to him, I'm 5 6" and he seemed to tower over me!!!

Hrmm, I'm surprised aswell. He's quite thin, and so looks more vertical (hehe) than he maybe is. I guessed about 5'9"! But, apparently, he scrapes six foot. Jude Law is also somewhat slight, and so gave me a similar impression, but he's also listed at 5'11". Ah, shucks! The music's great, anyway

Met him, he's about a centimete taller than me, and I'm just over 5'10, so 5'11 makes sense. I thought he'd be taller but the rest of the band, it seems, are just short.

Are there any good comparison pics out there?
Celo said on 3/Jan/07
I think this guy's taller than that. Well that's based on some footage from him standing next to Tara Reid..But then again..she's really short. I think that impression must be due to his thin build. Anyway, he's a tall guy.
MD said on 12/Sep/06
I'm very surprised at this listing. I never suspected him anything over 5'10". I think his incredibly thin/skinny build can give off the apperance of being taller. I always figured he looked so much taller in his band, because the other members always looked so short.

Just saw these guys in concert and Alex looked really small I'd say he is 170 but who cares? heee isss hooot

how tall is the lovely paul thomson? its hard 2 tell since he is sitting down most of the time.
Stella said on 13/Apr/06
Somewhere around 5'11" is I'd say about right. I had the lucky opportunity to get autographs and standing next to him he appears to be about the same height as my dad and my dad is not quite six feet tall, more like 5'11".

Never really met him but from my point of view I think he's like 6 ft. and he's the tallest fom the band. So I think he's pretty tall.

From what I've heard he's 5'10"-5'11". That's based on people's first-hand accounts, but not mine however.
[Editor Rob: this guy does appear to sometimes wear larger heely footwear, but yes looking at some fan pics...he can be downgraded.]
roru said on 7/Oct/05
183 cm......are you sure?
i meet Alex.... I believed he was high 175 cm
[Editor Rob: nope, I ain't sure on this guy - can't find much to compare him against, so your estimate could be closer to the truth...]
