Lets not argue quarter inches again. He is dropping a little height with a head tilt. He is very very close to 5'7. I don't see anything less then 5'6.75 and if Rob, who has met him, wants to give him 5'7 I won't argue Im sure Rob knows what an inch a change shorter then he is looks like.

Guys, I trust rob this man is a flat 5'7". It just goes to show how diminutive 170 really is, wether as 171-173 resembles average More tbh.
I'm talking about the everyday world not Hollywood where actors are 5'10-5'11 on average.

Hi rob, I used to think the French guy was trolling 24/7, but he does have a point, there is most certainly 1.5-2 inches between you guys. Please take a quarter inch as it is somewhat closer to the truth.
Editor Rob: he might look under 5ft 7 in this photo, but I wasn't convinced he was.
said on 8/Sep/17
Definitely looks shorter than 170.2cm. Judging from the photo he looks 5'6.25", but Rob felt he was 5'6.75"-7"
Editor Rob: yeah, he looks taller I feel than this photo, I really think he'd measure close to 5ft 7.

I am seeing more than a 1 inch difference Rob.
Why is this guy getting the full 170?
Editor Rob: he did seem close to it in person. I wasn't as certain he was 5ft 6.5-6.75, but more 5ft 6.75-7 I felt.
Pierre said on 27/Aug/17
By considering Rob is slouching more i give him max 5"6'.For me Rob is clearly 2 good inches taller than him.His hairs give him height.

closer to 5'7 than 5'6 - I agree
closer to 5'7 than 5'6.5 - I disagree.
he looks about 1/8th inch above 5'6.5 in the photo. But I think he's dropping a bit.

any chance of 5'6.75?
Editor Rob: there could be, but 5ft 6.5 I didn't think he looked that short, more closer to 5ft 7 than 6.5.
said on 2/Jun/17
I will change my mind, he is lucky if he is the same height as big G.
Editor Rob: I really didn't see Alfie as short as 5ft 6 and 1/4 😏
j/k, we all know Glenn is 5ft 7 on normal days when hydrated and not under stress 🤝 👍

169,5 - 170 cm
James said on 19/Apr/17
Richard Madden 5'8.5" (Not 5'11")
Kit Harington 5'6.5" (Not 5'8")
Alfie Allen 5'6" (Not 5'7")
Iwan Rheon 5'6.5" (Not 5'8")
The exaggeration amongst these actors is ridiculous
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Apr/17
@ 123 - Very funny! 😂😂😂
Alfie didn't exactly have it in his genes to grow unduly tall. 5ft7 from me this time round - again, so I haven't exactly changed my mind since 22nd February!

what about 1/32th of an inch lower than 5'7?
LOL oh my god you really do have to see it to believe it, yes 5'6 31/32nds, what next were arguing over one sixety fourths of a inch?! sadely thats the way its going on this site I can just imagine it now "LOL now way Justin biever is 5'7! he is 5'6 63/64ths! mayby 5'6 127/128ths MAX but 5'7 is trolling and is impossible screw you!
John said on 25/Mar/17
He looks like Edge from WWE. The listing is accurate.
berta said on 27/Feb/17
hm maybe more chase of being 169 range?
Ultimate said on 23/Feb/17
He is 169cm, believe me.
Sandy Cowell said on 22/Feb/17
@ Rojina - Hello! With regard to Lily Allen, bless her, I've only ever read that she's 5ft2!
Sandy Cowell said on 20/Feb/17
How delightful to know that Keith's son/Lily's brother is an actor! I didn't know that, yet I have heard of Alfie. He's following in his father's footsteps then, and he won't go far wrong if he's on par with his Dad.
Oh, and he tops him by an inch with his 5ft7!
He has youth and good looks on his side to boot!
Rojina said on 6/Jan/17
He's Lily Allen's younger brother. And she's around 5"2 or 3.....
Rachmaninoffguy said on 18/Nov/16
I had no idea he was this height. Always thought he was like 5'10"in GOT.
S.J.H said on 8/Nov/16
Up here with rob he didn't look over 5'6 and rob did not stand straight
said on 14/Oct/16
Rob who do you think would be taller, Alfie or Kit Harington?
Editor Rob: I actually thought Allen had more chance of 5ft 7 than a guy like Big G who falls to 5ft 6.5, he certainly seemed taller up close...but then, I was talking to a 5ft 7 girl the other day and she gave a taller impression than Allen!
But this was an eyelevel thing - hers was 4.1-4.2, so she seemed closer to my height, in reality wasn't.
anyway, I would say it might be a toss up for allen or harington as to who could edge each other out.
MD said on 28/Aug/16
Okay, @Rojina. Now you can move on.
Rojina said on 24/Aug/16
I ve said it before and I ll say it again.......he is handsome...........
ko said on 31/Jul/16
what about 1/32th of an inch lower than 5'7?
Guts said on 31/Jul/16
I Do feel like even if he was standing tall he wouldn't reach 5'7.
5'6.5 for me.
Pierre said on 29/Jul/16
Considering the postures,the difference eye to eye is around 1.5 inch imo. Alfie has a little shorter forehead than Rob imo:he's about 5"6' imo.
Rojina said on 28/Jul/16
white said on 25/Jul/16
when you mean near enough at the mark, do you mean like 1/8 to 1/16th inch below 5'7?
white said on 25/Jul/16
Johnnyboy said on 21/Jul/16
The 5'7" line is touching his hair. How is he marked 5'7"? I agree a downgrade is necessary.
teet said on 17/Jun/16
alfie ALIEN hair that makes it seem like 5;7 when in REALITY 5'6.75
james said on 6/Jun/16
More like 5'6.25" - 5'6.5" in that picture if you remove his hair. He's 169 cm in a good day.
Aaron Zamora said on 31/May/16
You look 2 inches taller than him. It's time to downgrade him. 5'6 would be a better fit.
Greg said on 25/Feb/16
Honestly that 5 ft 7 prediction is all hair, unless he has a head like an alien.
TJE said on 21/Jan/16
Since his mother's English, he could have Norman blood. Distant Scottish is possible too. Normans and Scots descended from Scandinavians.
JV said on 8/Oct/15
I wonder if he has any Scandinavian ancestry. I knew a Norwegian guy who looked exactly like him.
Drev said on 27/Sep/15
He seems about Big G range
andre said on 24/Sep/15
5ft6.5 barefoot change it
Spach said on 30/Apr/15
Looks 5 ft 6
said on 16/Jan/15
Rob, really now he is no taller than 169 cm in this photo, pretty much impossible. Did you have a footwear advantage on him? because if you didn't he might be as low as 168 cm. Anyway everything over 169 cm doesn't make any sense.
[Editor Rob: no footwear difference.]

Moke said on 10/Dec/14
Wow that's strange. I really thought he was a least 5'9'' and I'm not new to the height business.
said on 11/Nov/14
Don't know if what I tried just work?
Is it possible you could look on my Twitter?
Me and Alfie
Me and Noel
Similar height difference between the both through my eyes?
[Editor Rob: yes those links work fine. Alfie I think has a good stance with you, and can appear a decent 5ft 7, Noel is a taller guy in person than Alfie, how much, could be anywhere from 1 to 1.5 inches, big Josh also just posted a photo with Noel...
from watching Noel as I said, I thought that guy would stand loose at times, which is why I asked the back to back to try to get him as tall as possible.]
said on 10/Nov/14
I think you're right about the sneaker. Looking back on the photo, I'm leaning a bit, and have my head slightly lowered with his raised. There's more of a gap between us than there was between me and Noel as well. So yeah, probably just thick sneaker.
Got to say, he was a fantastic guy to talk to though!
[Editor Rob: why not upload it...always worth seeing another perspective...]
said on 9/Nov/14
Had my photo taken with Alfie in Cardiff Comic Con, and despite me being 169cm (barefoot, but 5"7 in shoes), he looked like he had an inch on me! Where as 5"8 Noel Clarke had barely anything over me. He looked shorter before the photo shoot as well, so possible lift wearer do you think Rob?
[Editor Rob: Clarke's posture goes up and down which is why I had asked him to do a back to back for one photo...I do think alfie looked at least an inch shorter from the time I seen him, I doubt he'd wear lifts though, but a thick sneaker might just boost someone up a cm more than usual.]
Jared said on 2/Nov/14
He looks shorter compared to you to the 5'6 1/2 girl contest where she looked almost as tall as you, showing 1 inch difference is almost invisible
said on 5/Sep/14
Rob, would ALfie be a weak 5'7 or a regular one?
[Editor Rob: he can look a weak 5ft 7 but I think would measure near enough the mark.]
Realists said on 29/Jul/14
Kinda looks like Hunter Parrish.
mila said on 7/Jul/14
he seems to be taller than kit harrington
The Horse of FUNK said on 26/Jun/14
Going by Rob's pic, 5'7" is generous.
The Exorcist said on 15/May/14
Five-seven seems about right. You can definitely tell he's related to Lily and Keith - he looks just like them!
said on 5/Sep/13
this looks closer to a 2 inch difference rob, is the angle funny?
[Editor Rob: that's how tall he looked that moment, but I think he was a fraction taller when looking and greeting him...but as I've said sometimes, we can get fooled if someone raises their eyelevel up, a difference can seem only 1 inch, but it might be a bit more!]
Newboy said on 26/Aug/13
Surprised this guy was just 5'7 (though he look shorter), glad they have average size guys on the show too
TNTinCA said on 24/Jul/13
Wow! This height took me off guard. He didn't appear that short on Game of Thrones. Does he wear lifts in the show?
said on 22/Jul/13
Rob - you have an inch and a half over him here, at least. What was the footwear situation?
[Editor Rob: his were a couple mm thicker]
Dr JJ said on 21/Jul/13
That's 5' 6" that is!
Rhonda said on 17/Jul/13
Is 5ft7 the beginning of being short for a man? 5ft8 Rob looks so much bigger than him. I read 5ft6 is the world average for a man.
rkc_cat said on 17/Jul/13
@Sam: Allen and Harington are pretty much the same height, so yeah, 5'6.5"-5'7" range for both is quite accurate. Judging by how they look next to Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell in GoT), who is supposedly about 6'(and looks like he's close enough to that, certainly not under 5'11.5"), they're both a bit under his eye level, which should be about 5'7"-5'7.5", so yeah, it's 99% sure they're both a bit under 5'7". But Madden looks a bit more than 2" taller than them to me. The 5'9.5" height he's listed at here looks pretty accurate to me.
Sam said on 16/Jul/13
Since Allen's in the 5'6.5"-5'7" range, then Kit Harington is probably an even 5'7" and Richard Madden no more than 5'9". The near a foot size difference with co-star Clive Russell makes me think Russell could carry around Alfie, Hodor-style, if he so chose.
Ali said on 16/Jul/13
The difference is obviously more than one inch
Greg said on 14/Jul/13
Has been claiming 175cm for years!
Leung said on 12/Jul/13
Damn this guy is shorter than I expected. He's even struggling to look 5'7" next to Rob.
lalala said on 11/Jul/13
looks exactly 5'6.5...Rob is tilting his head more
Bradi said on 10/Jul/13
Definitely seems shorter than 5'7''. Looks a lil bit shorter than G thats for sure at least in this pic.
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 9/Jul/13
Thanks Rob, I believe there's a 4 cm difference here.
paul said on 9/Jul/13
169 nothing more. short guy
Balrog said on 9/Jul/13
Rob did he had less footwear than you? He's looking 169 cm on the pic but in GOT he looked pretty much same height that Kit Harington.
avi said on 8/Jul/13
too high. he is 5'6.5
1.85 m, 83 kg
said on 8/Jul/13
Can I ask, footwear? And where do you think his crown is?
[Editor Rob: he had a little bit more, but not much and his hair looks between 0.5-0.75 range.]
said on 8/Jul/13
Wasn't he like 5'7.5 here before? I could have sworn. Did you two have similar footwear? I also think that it looks like a little more than 1 inch difference in the photo.
[Editor Rob: his were like a tiny bit thicker, I first put him that, but after seeing him thought he wasn't over 5ft 7.]
cole said on 8/Jul/13
In this photo he looks nothing over 169 cm, maybe even 168.
Brad said on 8/Jul/13
5 feet 6.
said on 6/Jul/13
He looks more 5ft 6 to me
[Editor Rob: no shorter than G in person, well the version of G who didn't lie in the volvo for 3 hours.]
teej said on 5/Jul/13
Defo 2 inches shorter than rob. 5ft6
Terilien said on 5/Jul/13
yeah he always struck me as having pretty short legs.
Jeremy said on 5/Jul/13
Looks between 5'6.5-5'7 here
Byron T. said on 4/Jul/13
Looks 5'6'' to me.
bulgvar said on 4/Jul/13
He's not quite hitting 5'7. Looks 5'6-5'6.5 tall
said on 4/Jul/13
He doesn't look shorter than you only by a inch, Rob. Is 5'6''-5'6.5'' possible for him?
[Editor Rob: I thought he was about 5ft 7]
otep90 said on 3/Jul/13
solid 5'6'' (1.68m)
miko said on 2/Jul/13
Unless he's got a big footwear disadvantage I'm seeing 5'6.5 tops here.
JohnGB said on 2/Jul/13
He really looks 5'6" in this photo
said on 2/Jul/13
Wow, he's a lot shorter than I initially thought. However, he and Kit Harington look pretty close in height in pictures.
