How tall is Armin Shimerman

Armin Shimerman's Height

5ft 5 ½ (166.4 cm)

American actor best known for his role as the Ferengi 'Quark' on science-fiction show Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, aswell as his portrayal of Principal Snyder on supernatural drama Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He told The Voyager website, "I'm five foot six. I brought the experience of being a short person in a tall society, and that is something that only somebody who is my height understands". But then he also said "I am 5'1" and 1/8." I met him at a Starfury Convention in 2007, Jenny first met him at Starfury Prime in 2005.

Rob, why did he claim 5'1 1/8"? Was it just a joke to emphasize the fact that he's short?
Editor Rob: yeah Christian, he seemed to be joking.

I think I've come across this guy maybe a dozen times now, in stores, at the theater, walking on the street. I'd peg him at 5'5'' maximum.

He was wearing heels wasn't he?
[Editor Rob: no, just normal shoes.]

He looks like a Ferengi even outside of his costume

No way this guy is five foot six looks barely taller than Sarah Michelle Gellar, and you look nearly 3 inches taller than him! Maybe 5ft5.5 peak...

I'd say he's more like 5'5".
[Editor Rob: he pretty much is 5ft 5 at least recently I saw him and thought that, whether he has lost a bit of height?]

Man, I love this site.Nevr thought I'd get to see a height listing for the ferengi!!! But who was he on Buffy???
[Editor Rob: he was a school principal for a few years.

I saw him a few weeks ago and he really looked 5ft 5 today.]

I think that he is peak was 5'6". He was tall for a ferengi in Deep Space Nine.

He looked much shorter on Buffy - shorter even than Alyson Hannigan, who couldn't have been taller than 5'3"-5'4" at the time.

5ft5.5 is quite tall for a Ferengi. Aron Eisenberg is only 5ft0.
robin said on 24/Nov/08
There's no way he is 5'6''. He looked tiny on Buffy - he was even shorter than Alyson Hannigan who's only about 5'4''.
sf said on 24/Jan/07
Hard to say, since he's leaning, but no doubt he looks like a Ferengi, HU-MANNNN...

Man, even without the makeup, he STILL looks like a Ferengi! :-)

Rob - where is your photo of him and why haven't you put up all the other Star Trek photos like Robert Picardo and Marina Sirtis you showed me?

Next to Terry Farrell, no idea what kind of footwear: http://www.tallpeople.org/photos/data/3740/450Terry_Farrell_2.jpg

He looked about 5'4" compared to the rest of Buffy cast (shorter than Alyson Hannigan, for example). But maybe they wanted the small man to look even smaller onscreen? I did update the 5'6" figure to IMDb once upon a time, after seeing the very same quote as above.

[Editor Rob: never really checked this guy...hmm, now that I think about it he was miniscule on DS9!]
