His slender build can make him look taller. Like 5'9. Actually very surprised he's around this today. Especially looking shorter than Jenny.

Back in 2005 when he was 59, Daniels still looked 5ft 8 next to Ian McDiarmid who had 5ft 8.75 at the time: Click Here
Rob, I think a 5ft 8.25 is a number you can give him as peak height.

Rob, I have some questions about Anthony.
1. It is possible that his peak height was 1/4 over 5'8" and Anthony could have been 5'9" out of bed?
2. At the time of "Revenge of the sith", could Anthony still be 5'7.5"?
3. Can Anthony be flat 5'7" today?
I hope that you will answer my questions.

Gracian, there is a chance of a strong 5ft he might be closer to 5ft 7. I only seen him 6 years ago, he was under 5ft 8 by then, but not seen him recent years.

It’s weird the character of C3Po is listed as being 5’6 in. He looked about an inch taller than Mark Hamill in Star Wars so I would guess he could have been about 5 ft. 9 in. at his peak.

Hamill was never more than 171 cm in his prime. Daniels I think would pull off Rob's height in his prime. The actual C3PO head makes him look half an inch taller, so 5'9 I seriously doubt. If anything, he would be that straight out of bed.

I stood next to him at Star Wars Celebration. I'm 5'10 and he was at least 2 1/2 inches shorter than me. I'd say the height is correct.

Hadn’t any idea he was this tiny.

I have dug out my old Star Wars scrapbooks. In one, there are the profiles of six of the major stars of the Star Wars saga at the time they were published in a British magazine (1982). They were Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, David Prowse (Darth Vader), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) and Kenny Baker (R2-D2). This is what it said about Anthony Daniels...

I've stood next to both you Rob and Anthony Daniels and I would say you're the same height. Definitely 5'8.
Editor Rob
I would be surprised if he was still 5ft 8 today, having met him he looked shorter than jenny side by side...

I met him... he is 5ft 8 inches.

Dunno why, but I always thought the actor portraying C-3PO was 6'+ after learning that there was actually a man inside of R2D2. I guess this was before I really knew about dwarfism. XD

Looks a flat 170cm in this picture consider their eye-level and ear-level.

Anthony Daniels's height is 5'7". He said that in some interview.
Mark said on 30/Sep/07
Daniel's in the C3PO costume looks a good 2-3" taller then Mark Hamill in the closing episode of Empire Strikes Back.

I think there is no place for doubt. Anthony Daniels seems to be 173cm in Star Wars, and Anthony Daniels himself states he is 173cm. So, I believe him...
Fox Clapper said on 18/Mar/06
Anthony Daniels is 2" taller than Mark Hamill in Episode 4. He is also 2" short of Billy Dee Williams in Episode 5. He may well be 5'8" to 5'9" Max.
