Allen Leech's Height
5ft 8 ½ (174 cm)
Irish Actor best known for roles in Rome, Downton Abbey and films such as The Sweeney, Bohemian Rhapsody and From Time to Time.
I was a very, very fat kid. At 13, being only 5ft 2in, I weighed 12st, so I was wider than I was tall...I work out a huge amount these days and am pretty muscular. I'm 5ft 10in but only weigh 10 stone.

There's no way Charlie Webster is 5ft 9.5 if he's the listed height she's wearing very high heels and is barely taller than him she's 5ft 8 at best

I was wrong, he is not 177 cm, it's probably 173-175 cm, I thought he was taller than Elizabeth McGovern, obviously he is not.

@ Jem, Barton is a solid 175cm and is wearing big heels. She's even towering 6-footer Stevens in that photo.
Every other male on Downton Abbey is so damned tall. Allen is the only bloke who's even remotely close to average. Makes him look shorter than he is.

Allen Leech is a very good looking man, I would say he is 5"8 " , he looks good wearing jeans

I have met Allen Leech and I am 5ft 9" and was wearing flats . He was taller than me . There are photos of him and his ex Charlie who he is with above where she is in flat shoes or trainers and they are the same height. She has said many times she is 5ft 10" . I have noticed that he stoops a bit when posing for photos so this may make him look shorter but he is certainly more than 5ft 9" based on my height standing beside him.

He routinely and visibly looks below average height by at least an inch. It'd be hard for me to see even 5'8.5" because at that height you can often manage looking average.

He's more about 5'8" and has gained a considerable amount of weight since his appearance in the first season. In the final season of DA , he looks to be around 185-195 lbs...maybe even a few ponds more.

He looks about 173/5'8 max to me, he's way too stocky to be 5'10. I'd even say he's probably 170 or 171/5'7

I just saw this guy on Stephen Colbert's late-night show here in the states. Anyway, given the comments below (no one seems to be convinced he's even that tall), is this maybe one you could look at/revisit, now?
Here he is with Bendict Cumberbatch:
...and 6'2" Matthew Goode:
He honestly looks much more 5'8" max, than anything over 5'8".

I usually only post if I can give a certain account of someone's height that I have met in person, but in this case I have to protest even a 174cm listing. I'm 170cm, and he looks about my same height and build. He may give himself a lift with certain shoes, but I would list his as 170-171cm.

never! something like 1.73 He looks a lot shorter then Dan stevens who is supposed to be 1.83
[Editor Rob: he does look like he's giving himself at least an extra inch and maybe a bit more.]
