Sorted-out 2 cents by Gustaf Skaarsgard. His 6-2 188 is really right, I can see it now
Varasu said on 18/Jul/20
188.5, not fully 189 yet
190 + it is funny
Kebapsever said on 12/Jul/20
He has the best height a man can have. I personally think he’s 6’2 3/4 190cm.
Aaron Bamford said on 3/Jun/20
Watching bad boys right now I clearly a strong 6’3 next to Will Smith
Crane said on 19/May/20
@Jam Ridiculous... A real 190 cm barefoot measured in Gustaf Skarsgard edged Alex Ludwig out by at least 2 cm and that was in 2016. Just take a look at all their photos together.
Jam Cherry said on 11/May/20
He grew after 2011 ... I think he’s touching 190 cm now
Crane said on 23/Apr/20
Re-read what I wrote again. Looks can be deceiving. Just because he looks tall and towered over surroundings, that doesn't make him "6'2.5". Especially coming from his own mouth, he claimed it himself multiple times that he is "6 foot 2". If he was measured 6'2.5 he would've already claimed that mark or round himself up to 6'3 but he didn't. It's not that hard to acknowledge when a person is telling the truth about their height or vice-versa. In case of Ludwig, he's telling the truth and that truth is 6'2
TheBat said on 15/Apr/20
You mean nothing below 6'2.25". Alexander is a legit 6'2.5".

Ludwig looked noticeably bigger than Will Smith in Bad Boys for Life, even Smith's character commented on his size. It's weird because there should only be an inch difference between them, as Will is definitely nothing under 6'1 these days...
TheBat said on 17/Mar/20
Legit 6'2.5" no doubt.
Crane said on 4/Feb/20
It’s not that he’s over that mark. It is because he is the “Actual” 6’2” barefoot guy, not some 6’0 / 6’1 guys clamming to be 6’2 like those you met most of the time in life. Back to reality, even with an extra boost he still isn’t over 6’2.25” barefoot.
said on 2/Feb/20
@Rob But why give him half a cm boost when he isn’t that height?
Isn’t 188.6 cm 6’2.25 already bang right on the dot for Alex Ludwig?
The man who stated himself multiple times that he is 6’ 2” barefoot 🦶
he looks like a guy who is taller than a flat 6ft 2
said on 31/Jan/20
Here is a photo of a 5'10 fan with Alexander. Does he still look about 6'2.5 here do you think, Rob?
It's funny Clive Standen on Vikings claimed 6ft 3 and Ludwig 6ft 2. Ludwig is clearly the one closer to 6ft 3 than Standen.
Jay said on 19/Jan/20
Looks almost 2 inches taller than will in Bad Boys for Life
Sean Lennon said on 17/Jan/20
6'2.5" is spot on. I was an extra on Vikings and chatted with him once, really nice guy. I'm just a shade over 6'3" and had about 2cm on him.
Jkiller said on 17/Jan/20
Very strong 6'2, can pull off looking 6'3 at times.
James Donnelly said on 2/Jan/20
6'2" that's EXTREMELY tall for a child actor.
said on 1/Nov/19
How tall do you think king Harald (Peter Franzen) is, Rob?
about 5ft 9
Big Ben said on 31/Oct/19
You can't put on 30 pounds of lean muscle. Most of it is fat and water. Maybe 9 pounds was pure muscle. Putting on 30lbs of muscles takes years upon years of extreme dedication.
Nik said on 29/Sep/19
His above claim is very interesting!
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Aug/19
Sometime he can pull off 6'3 but Gustaf Skarsgard had him about 1cm that destroy anything above 189cm.
TheBat said on 31/Jul/19
Legit 6'2.5". Honestly Alexander can look taller than that at times but this is spot on to me.
berta said on 23/Jul/19
perfect listing this is what he looks. funny that he claims 6 foot 2 and clive standen claims 6 foot 3 when Alexander is clearly a legit inch taller.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Jun/19
Tom Welling = Brandon Routh = Alexander Ludwig = Very Strong 189cm.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 20/Feb/19
Deserved a 1/4 upgrade.
berta said on 9/Dec/18
legit 189 guy
Roddie said on 19/Nov/18
He has the typical body proportions and height of average German university student at my Uni in Northern Germany.
said on 16/Nov/18
Strong 6'2 judging by the pic above, Rob how tall would you say Jack Quaid looks? He doesn't look too much shorter than Ludwig in the Hunger Games, maybe 6'1?
Yeah I think in 6ft 1 range is possible, I will give him a page.
SAM CHERRY said on 15/Nov/18
He makes Travis Kimmel look 5’11”!
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Oct/18
@berta Taking more look i agree with you i guess right at 189cm like 6'2 3/8 but not sure of 6'2 1/2.
berta said on 6/Sep/18
average guess seems pretty close. i dont thinkhe is legit 190 cm guy buy could be legit 189
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Sep/18
Solid 6'2 before bed.
Leno179 said on 16/Jul/18
Solid 189 cm.
MAD SAM said on 7/Jun/18
Gonna give him 189 cm
Dream(5'9.5") said on 17/May/18
6'2 3/8ths" would be the best listing for Ludwig.
Jason25th said on 20/Jan/18
It's difficult to estimate the height of this guy. He is certainly 0.5 inches smaller than Gustaf, however, there are times when he doesn't seem to be as smaller as Matthew Daddario, who in turn is similar to the legitimate 6'3 Isaiah Mustafa. Maybe it's a matter of posture or footwear. Matthew has a bad posture, while Gustav always positions himself in a way that looks taller, as in some photos with his brother Bill, in which the second seems smaller (although not to be). Anyway, I think this list is spot on.
Krauser said on 5/Jan/18
Typical 6'2 guy
Slim 186 said on 3/Dec/17
He’s definitely 189cm.
Anonymous said on 2/Dec/17
He was a short boy in race to witch mountain.Most child actors don't grow to be 6.2
joe### said on 27/Nov/17
225 pounds no look.
Slim 185 said on 17/Nov/17
@md: Editor Rob: I think in 20-22 range he did put on another last fraction, whether he really hit as tall as 6ft 2.5 is still debatable.
Starlo said on 17/Nov/17
Doesn't look anything less than half an inch shorter at most when standing next to Liam Hemsworth. I say he's closer to 6'3 than 6'2.
MD said on 17/Nov/17
He began on the show a bit over three years ago; he's now 25. It's not likely he few throughout the filiming of this series.
Slim 185 said on 15/Nov/17
HE definitely grew taller throughout Vikings. I remember in his first appearance he was barely taller than Fimmel, maybe in 6’1” territory than over time he grew to 6’2” range.
Edimar1.84 said on 9/Nov/17
1.89 guy, pretty pretty good shape... 6ft2.5 is godd for him. Def over 6ft2 mark.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 26/Oct/17
He's an honest 6'2" 188cm
berta said on 24/Oct/17
he is no shorter than dwayune johnson these days
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 6/Oct/17
Rob, this is probably a weird thing, but my arms are actually similar in length to Alexander Ludwig!
Slim 182 cm said on 13/Aug/17
This guy and Reynolds have the potential to measure the same height.
said on 6/Aug/17
Rob, do you think he's grown since he started vikings at age 21? He used to be a bit taller than travis fimmel, now he's way bigger
Editor Rob: I think in 20-22 range he did put on another last fraction, whether he really hit as tall as 6ft 2.5 is still debatable.
Slim 182 cm said on 5/Aug/17
Rampage, that's because this guys 6'2.25, give or take a quarter inch.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Aug/17
Doesn't look under 6ft2
said on 30/Jul/17
How tall would say Alex Høgh Andersen, the focal point of the next season of Vikings, is in this photo with Alexander Ludwig and Gustaf Skarsgard? He's listed as 182cm by Panorama Agency but that seems overly optimistic.
I'd say 5'11", maybe 5'11½", is more accurate, but it's somewhat difficult to tell from the photo.
Editor Rob: might have a look, but almost 6ft maybe is too much.
even said on 20/Jul/17
legit 6 foot 2 , legit 200 pounds
Mark(5'9.5") said on 15/Jul/17
He'll be taller than Ryan Reynolds.
S.J.H said on 12/Jul/17
Def not taller than Ryan Reynolds
Slim 181 cm said on 10/Jul/17
1 cm between gustaf Skarsgard and this man.
Slim 181 cm said on 10/Jul/17
He'd meausure closer to 189.3 cm on a stadiometre.
Slim 181 cm said on 8/Jul/17
I'd like to make a new vote to 6'2.5 if that's possible.
Slim 5'11.5 said on 5/Jul/17
Rob this lad was honest about his height as well claiming 6'2. I guess most of the votes are from Vikings fans because he's such a cool character.
Slim 5'11.5 said on 5/Jul/17
Rob, are we sure he's no just a 188 guy? 182 travis fimmel held his own against this guy!!!
Mark(5'9.25 said on 19/May/17
One thing is for sure. 6'2" flat is injustice for this guy.
berta said on 5/May/17
strong 189 weak 190 guy in my eyes.
said on 21/Apr/17
Rob, how likely is 6'2.5" on a good day?
Editor Rob: yeah, he can pull it off....though I do think later in the day he will not be much over 6ft 2.
berta said on 6/Feb/17
he looks taller than the listing atleast 189 guy that could be 190 he beside dwayne johnson back to back. i think he would take dwayne with atleast 0,5 cm
Del Mar said on 29/Jan/17
I agree with Steve, towers everybody and looks 6'4 easy
berta said on 23/Jan/17
this guy is no shorter than 189 should be upgraded 1/4 inch i thinkw he was over 1 cm taller than bana
said on 12/Jan/17
Unless they are making him taller in the show I would say he is like 193cm (about 6 feet 4) tall now. proof:Click Here
and Click Here
Although it is possible that they are making him taller because it is unlikely that he would grow up like that in his age. Click Here
My personal guess is that he is like 189-190cm and they are making him bit taller in the show to highlight that he is "ironside".
Kevin said on 12/Jan/17
Having watched the most recent episodes of vikings dec '16 onwards, he seem's to be noticeably taller than Clive that plays Rollo and in some scenes not far off the actor that plays Floki who i believe is 6'4 ? he looks to have taken a stretch and closer to 6'3 now.
sa344 said on 13/Nov/16
He looked nothing under 6'2.5'' - 6'2.75'' with Liam Hemsworth
said on 23/Oct/16
Rob, in this interview he said he had to gain 30 pounds of muscle for his role in "Lone Survivor" and that he went from his normal weight of 195 pounds to 225 pounds, maybe you want to add that to the top
Editor Rob: ok thanks for pointing the other quote out, it is believable...I thought Lone Survivor was a decent movie.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/16
Does look a strong 6ft2
5'6 14 year old boy said on 9/Jul/16
I agree 189 cm
berta said on 1/Jul/16
i Think this guy is 189 and bana is maybe 188 and hemsworth could be 192 .
said on 25/May/16
Looks the same as 6'2' Eric Bana (Ludwig's hair adds a good inch):
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 25/May/16
I agree with the downgrade. 6'2 1/2" seemed too high.
said on 30/Apr/16
Hey, Rob. I found something interesting. Take a look at this page @Click Here
Ludwig is in the middle of those pics Gustaf Skarsgard is on the right, when Gustaf stand straight he edge Ludwig out almost an inch. Now, I'd say 6'2.75 - 6'3 for Skarskard when he stand normal and 6'2 - 6'2.25 for Ludwig.
Editor Rob: ludwig can look about 6ft 2 there.
Crane said on 24/Apr/16
I won't buy him as a "TRUE" 6'2.5", let alone anything above that list. The most accurate list for him is 6'2.25" or 188.6 cm which he looks to be exactly that mark.
Del Mar said on 17/Apr/16
He dwarfes Travis Fimmel in a couple of pics and looks huge! Sometimes 6'6 compared to the others, he is mo doubt taller than he has said
said on 22/Mar/16
@Rob Why don't you just give him the listed that most people agreed on and he claimed it many times himself ?
Editor Rob: sometimes people won't bother with a fraction and just go with nearest mark. I think there is a good chance Ludwig might be a bit over 6ft 2 flat and not bother with the little fraction.
joe### said on 14/Feb/16
looks than Eric bana
Allie said on 12/Feb/16
My guess is 6'2-2.25. Hemsworth looks around an inch taller and he looks this height with 5'8 Elsa Hosk.
said on 9/Feb/16
rob, what would his head length be from top to his chin?
Editor Rob: 9.5-9.7 range
Celebheights 6'1.75 said on 6/Feb/16
He's at least an inch shorter than Liam Hemsworth.
MD said on 14/Jan/16
There are some photos from a 2012 Hunger Games premiere where they actually do look exactly the same height...with Liam in very flat tennis shoes and Alex literally in heeled boots. Chris, then, is clearly taller.
said on 11/Jan/16
Ludwig has to be at least 6'2.75". He looks the same height as Liam Hemsworth when standing together, and at times even edges him out. Do you think an upgrade might be necessary Rob?
Editor Rob: to me Hemsworth looks bigger
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 4/Jan/16
There are some photos in which he can appear to be taller than 6'3"-6'4" listed actors, but there's no way that he's that tall. I think that he tends to have great posture, and often wears bigger shoes than most people do. 6'2"-6'2 1/4" is what he actually is.
Crane said on 24/Nov/15
Actually a 6'2.25" with long hair, great posture and shoes advantage could easily appears 6'4"!
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 17/Nov/15
Donovan McNabb was measured at 6'2 1/4", and is taller than Ryan Lochte by about 2" inches. The difference between Ludwig and Ryan Lochte appears to be about the same. So 6'2 1/4" might be better.
Allie said on 4/Oct/15
If anyone's wondering about Matthew's height, Daddario claims 6'2.75. Anyways, I'm betting my money on 6'2.25 at the max. Doesn't seem like someone who'd overestimate or downplay their height to the extreme.
Shane Zaylik said on 22/Jul/15
I think he's one of those guys who's honestly a true 6'2" not just a 6'2" wanna be. Or maybe even a 6'2.25"! But if you ask me I'd say a 6'2.5" is too high...
John Macronald said on 13/Jul/15
Just because he's a bit more than 6'2" doesn't make him 6'2.5" Rob.. Plus he said by himself many times that he was 6'2"... Of course 6'2.25" 188.6 cm might fit better for him. A bit downgrade Rob ?
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 12/Jul/15
Alexander Ludwig is standing up a lot straighter, and he's a bit closer to the camera. I think that he has footwear advantage as well.
joe said on 11/Jul/15
Clive has less shoes
said on 11/Jul/15
Hi Rob :)
These pictures of Alexander and Clive. Clive is listed as 6'2 too so is it possible that Alexander is taller than 6'2?
- they are standing side by side. not sure if it is an angle that makes Alexander taller? but I think he's taller than Clive for sure.
- he looks so big here
What do you think? Thank you
[Editor Rob: I think Clive is between 6ft 1 and 2, and Ludwig looks generally in the 6ft 2-2.5 territory.]
said on 11/Jul/15
Hi Rob is it possible that Alexander is taller than 6'2 because if you compare him with Clive who is listed as 6'2, Alexander might be an inch taller?
said on 9/Jun/15
Rob what age do you think Alex stoped growing at???
[Editor Rob: I think age 19-20 he maybe got an extra little bit]
said on 26/May/15
well you can never know for sure
but Alexander and Matthew Daddario seem to be about the same height.
- Alexander looks even taller than Matthew
But in this pic they seem to be about the same height. - Click Here
what do you think, Rob? :/ thanks :)
[Editor Rob: yeah I'd say they were pretty close in height.]
Kyler '' Crane '' 192.5 said on 25/May/15
Yea. Anything more than 6'2.5" is out of questions for him. Just like I mentioned. Sadly.. I saw him up closed enough but won't be able to take a pic with him for you guys. 6'2.25" or 188.6 is absolutely bang on spot for Alex!
Celebheights 6'1.75/187 CM said on 22/May/15
6'3" is ridiculous. He's an inch shorter than Matthew Daddario who appeared to be about 6'3" by Vince Vaughn. 6'2"-6'2.25" is more real.
said on 9/May/15
Saw him year ago in LA. He looks about 6'2-2.5 188-89. What do you think
[Editor Rob: he passes for a big 6ft 2, enough to say 6ft 2.5 is quite possible]
Hi said on 1/May/15
@Manko. I agree with you. Alexander seems taller than 6'2 to me. I think he's 6'3 or at least 190 cm. now. What do you guys think?
said on 23/Apr/15
Is there a chance that he is still growing? Cliven Standen, from Vikings its supposed to be 6´2 or 188cm, yet Alexandre always appear at least an inch taller than him.
what do you think Rob? maybe he is near to 6´3 nowadays than to 6´2.
joe 193cm night
said on 14/Mar/15
higher than Eric Bana I think Ludwig is 6'2.75Click Here
said on 4/Mar/15
rob, im really-really curious to know your opinion about Jessie Usher's height. Please, take a look at this photo. Here Jessie is with Alexander Ludwig(Click Here
) Pretty nice photo to compair.What would you say about Jessie Usher's height? 6 feet? more? less?
[Editor Rob: somewhere around that mark is possible but I'm not familiar with him yet. ]
Rusty 190cm said on 12/Feb/15
Based on an I M D B photo with Jim Caviezel (if Caviezel is 6'1" flat as Rob lists him, I think 6'2.25"-6'2.5" is the range this guy would measure in. 6'2" with plenty of change but nearer 6'2" than 6'3"
Height183 said on 29/Jan/15
Proper 6'2.5'', thought he was 6'3'' at first.
Smookie said on 9/Nov/14
Xander was living near us while filming and he is very tall. At least 6ft 3 minimum. I took pics of him with my kids outside the local pub. He was such a nice guy to them. Soooo well brought up. His mom would be proud.
Mr Steed said on 22/Aug/14
I imagine he's a bit more than 185lbs now.
said on 19/Jul/14
Hey Rob, do you think that could had been one of those guys who grow until he was near 20? at 16-17 he was considerably shorter than 6ft 3 The Rock and know he is almost The Rock height!
[Editor Rob: he did seem to gain a bit more in late teens]
pataan19 said on 7/May/14
He does seem at least an inch shorter than Liam hems worth of the photos of them together. My guess is 6'2"-2.25" range.
midday192cm said on 7/May/14
I would have placed him at a big 6'2.25.
Rikashiku said on 11/Apr/14
6'2.5" Looks good. I had assumed 6'3" in past appearances. It's strange seeing how a tiny 15 year old grow up so big.
Balrog said on 26/Mar/14
He can look 6'3" but claimed 6'2". Liam Hemsworth is taller than him but Liam could be a shy over 6'3". 6'2.5" is ok I think, maybe he grew a bit more after 18 and didn't measure.
MD said on 21/Mar/14
Anyone who has followed me here knows that I am absolutely skeptical and loathe to advocate for a height increase for most celebrities, since so many of them (and people in general) overstate their height. But, not only is he at least 6'2", but I'd argue he might even be a weak 6'3".
berta said on 19/Mar/14
said on 12/Mar/14
Rob he has stated 6'2" on his twitter, most recently in november of 2012. So you think he grew another half inch past 20?
[Editor Rob: yeah he can pass for a strong 6ft 2, it is possible he gained a little more since last time he measured? ]
Balrog said on 29/Jan/14
He has claimed 6'2" on his twitter I think.
Balrog said on 29/Jan/14
I think 6'2.25" was better, if he realy is 6'2.5" then Liam Hemsworth is 192cm for sure. Lochte always gave the feeling of a 6'0"-6'1" guy. Looks 184cm next to Lutz.
said on 29/Jan/14
6'2" really looks too short for him, now. Heck, here's a photo back in September 2012 with Ryan Lochte to the left and Kellan Lutz on the end, and Alex isn't even standing straight:
This picture also shows how ridiculous Lochte's 6'2" swimming listing has been. lol
[Editor Rob: he can look 189cm]
kevin said on 28/Jan/14
yup... taller than bana. so hes got to be 189-190cm range
said on 26/Jan/14
Rob this guy grew a lot from the race to with mountain. Back then he was 16-17 and looked no more than 5'11" next to the Rock, 3in after 16 is a big chance don't you think?
[Editor Rob: yeah he still gained several inches in that range]
berta said on 3/Jan/14
not shorter than erik bana in lone survivor. Look 1 cm taller. He have a baby face so maybe he is waek 190 now strong 189
Emily said on 4/Dec/13
And his mouth isn't strangely shaped or set. He just has very thin lips.
Emily said on 4/Dec/13
His head really is quite small for his height. I think it's just a tiny bit bigger than Josh Hutcherson's, although he's a short guy. Around 9,25 inches?
Gourab94 said on 19/Jul/13
He's 6' 2" yup . & ya , he got a nice face. but those who says he's a good actor is nonsense. Lol , he didn't even got too many dialogues in hunger games. but whatever , you know what , he'll become a failure as an actor , cause his attitude & personality totally sucks. That intelligent attitude , like Brad pitt , or Daniel craig . sometimes face is not everything to become a great actor .
however , ^ he's good for girls . - & that's the thing won't allow him to improve his acting skills .
whatever , we're discussing the height - 6' 2" .. he's 1 inch shorter than Liam
Balrog said on 17/Feb/13
You're right joak but still his head is small for a guy at his height. And the fact he bulked up makes it more noticeable.
joak said on 17/Feb/13
Balrog: i think it's because he buffed up a little too much for his role in Hunger Games. the face/jaw widens and the neck thickens so it makes his thin nose and mouth look strange on his face. he looked better in pre-HG pictures...or more proportional anyway. but i like him. he still looks good :)
it's hard to compare him to Liam Hemsworth because pictures are always taken at weird angles...or they have varying shoe heights...or somebody is slouching. either way he's a big guy haha. there were times i felt kind of bad for Josh Hutcherson when he had to stand next to or in between Ludwig and Hemsworth at promotion events.
Balrog said on 16/Jan/13
MD. What I noticed is his head. Really small for a six foot two man.
Balrog said on 15/Jan/13
Well Liam Hemsworth does seems to have an inch on him so 6'2'' is about right. Although I haven't seen much of this guy.
SAK said on 14/Jan/13
Easy 6f2. I can't see anything lower for him.,
