What's the highest and lowest mark you could see for Asa ?
Editor Rob
5ft 11.75 to strong 6ft

182 - 184 cm is the range he looks in.

I'm watching him on Netflix series Sex Education. I would never have guessed 6'0. He didn't give me the impression of being that tall. He was comfortably above average. I honestly would have said 5'11 range though, similar to someone like Eddie Redmayne.

I know these are all estimates but Rob what do you genuinely see him as solid 6'0? I think he is more likely to be a weak 6'0.
Editor Rob
Looks over 5ft 11 in all I've seen of him, but I get the argument of weak 6ft.

Do you think 5'11 1/4 - 1/2 is a bit low?
Editor Rob
I don't think I'd argue under 5ft 11.5 range

He looks 5'10 (178cm) - 5'11 (181cm) but not 6'0.

6ft 0.75 first thing wouldn't surprise.
Evidence Fanatic said on 9/Mar/22
I think he's 6' (183 cm) right out of bed, but definitely not that by the afternoon or end of the day. Closer to 5'11.5 just like Gianni DeCenzo, though I could see an argument being made for 5'11.75

He’s at a comfortable 6ft. Looked taller than most in Sex Education.

@ Christian 6ft5 3/8ths - Hi! I only just found your comment from 18th September last year. I'm off to check the height of a young actor whom I noticed at the end of a film starring Sam Neill from 1994 called 'In The Mouth of Madness'. He was Hayden Christensen, and had a minor scene as a paperboy, aged 12/13, and looking tiny, but I feel sure he grew up to be quite tall.

Back in a mo.....

I found his page and Hayden is now 6ft and an eighth of an inch, so not the sort of unfair and unsubstantiated 'stunted growth' look that a percentage of child stars are associated with when grown up.

Asa might be tall (ish to guys of your height!), but having said that, he was sitting on his bicycle. I'll check the film out again to make sure, and it won't be an arduous task either as it's a cracking film, as is 'The Boy In The Striped Pajamas', only in a different way. Asa Butterfield's film part disturbed me for days, and emphasised the fact that every little kid is as good as the next one.

Cheers Christian; I do hope you are well!

Sandy 😁👍 XX

Young Mr Butterfield gets 6ft0.25, to agree with the average.
Glitch said on 3/Sep/21

What is your guess on his inseam size?
Editor Rob
He might wear 34 inch trousers
Matt M said on 13/Jul/21
He needs to be downgraded
I think his 6 foot claim is in the morning and i don't think he's any taller then 6'0 1/8
And 5'11 1/4, 5'11 1/2 at night
Matt M said on 1/Jul/21
He looks like he could be 6'0 maybe even close to 6'0 1/4 first thing in the morning but later in the day he's closer to 5'11 1/2

Flo said on 6/Mar/21
No taller than 5"11. Looks barely taller than 1.70m emma mackey in season 2. Average guess is far off.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Sep/20
While he's pretty tall by child actor standards, I wouldn't really say that unusual. There are plenty of ex-child actors turned adults who are also 6'0"+ or near it.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 18/Sep/20
@ Nik - Hi Nik! Asa played the son of David Thewlis in the tragic film 'The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas', which upset me for days afterwards. This was back in 2008. What a coincidence that Asa grew up to be 6ft! David Thewlis is 6ft2.5/3 so you could say it's rather an ironic coincidence. Asa played an 8-year-old in the Hollywood film, so it is spelt Pajamas as the Americans do, BTW, and he makes friends with a little Jewish boy. Try and check the film out, Nik. You won't be disappointed.
Cheers Nik!
Nik Ashton said on 14/Sep/20
@ Sandy Cowell - That is an interesting observation!

He seems taller than 6ft to me, i don't know, he's hard to tell with, but with a recent interview with 6'4 michael stahan he looked to only be about 2-3 inches shorter. Click Here
Matt99 said on 3/Feb/20
Rob if Ncuti is max a weak 5’9 then I can’t see Asa Butterfield over 5’11.5. I always thought Ncuti would be 176 range next to Butterfield.
Matt99 said on 2/Feb/20
Rob surely Ncuti Gatwa he isn’t only 5’8 range? Would of thought he was at least 5’9. Although he does have impeccable posture. How tall do you think Kedar Williams Stirling or “Jackson” is? Now he is a guy who seems 5’8 range. Anywhere between 172-174cm I feel.
Editor Rob
I wouldn't list him less than 5ft 8.5, as tall as 5ft9? I'm not sure, I'd need to look a bit more.
Arthur! said on 26/Jan/20
Rob how tall do you think the guy who plays his gay friend Eric in Sex education, (Gatwa) is?
Editor Rob
Could be 5ft 8
Nik said on 20/Jan/20
Rob is sure!
Sebas said on 19/Jan/20
He's AT LEAST 6', maybe a tiny bit above that. He's noticeably taller than most of the actors in Sex Education, and TALLER than the actor who plays his father (James Purefoy). You can watch them facing each other in Season 2 Episode 4 at 33:55.
Peter175 said on 18/Jan/20
He is just incredibly lanky and small boned.

He is not above 6ft, in fact he's probably more like 182
Sonnecker said on 6/Aug/19
He's 22, at the end of his body growth. Young and still very lanky, he could appear a little taller than he really is, sometimes 185/186 cm. He looks a strong 6-footer to me, like 184 cm or 6'0,5"; but I need to see him beside any other colleagues to be more precise...
jmxlit said on 31/Jul/19
Lanky 6ft flat guy, seems to have a very long thin torso. Good height.
cmillzz said on 19/Jun/19
I don’t think he’s a legit 6 footer tbh
Mikester said on 23/Mar/19
he looked considerably taller than most of his fellow actors in the sex education netflix show
FE said on 12/Feb/19
@Editor Rob,

Are u sure he’s 6ft?
Click Here
Click Here

The girl standing on the right is my Friend’s Girlfriend who I’ve met in person and really didn’t look over 5’5” max!
Asa looks a lot shorter than 6ft, More like 5’10” range (not so sure if its a footwear disadvantage),
but it's surprising to see he’s actually shorter in person to be fair.
BTW This was in NOV 2018.

Rob, What do u think of this?
Editor Rob
In the shot I'd have said he might not be over 5ft 11, but then it's easy to have less footwear and drop some height and the real difference isn't quite revealed.
Film Fan said on 3/Feb/19
Thomas 1996, I’m a 22 year old man and I have been 6’ 0 1/2” since I was 16. I think I’d be just a touch taller than Asa Butterfield’s height if he really is 6’ 0.3” like most people on here are guessing. He really is one of the VERY few child stars who is actually tall. He is also a great actor who should be on more films.
Thomas 1996 said on 2/Feb/19
Wow i just saw his newest show on netflix and i guess they just had a really tall cast because he didnt look that tall or it might be his posture fit his character that was akward it was kind of funny that they were playing 16 year olds and most of the male cast were around and over 6 foot
Matt99 said on 23/Jan/19
Rob most likely range for him?
A. 184.5 - 183.9
B. 183.5 - 182.9
C. 182.6 - 182.0
D. 181.6 - 181.0

Personally I think this listing is fine, but sometimes he can seem 5’11.75 ish but he doesn’t have the greatest posture.
Editor Rob
I'd stick somwhere around C range versus say the A range.
Guru Guy said on 17/Jan/19
He's probably right around my height. Good height, and good actor!
Sandy Cowell said on 17/Jan/19
Isn't it amazing? That dear little fellow from 'The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas' has grown up to be a 6-footer! In it, he starred with the 6ft3 David Thewlis as his son. His Mum was the 5ft5.5 Vera Farmiga, and - ha ha ha! - the son of parents like that would probably grow to around 6ft, so that's an inadvertent coincidence, but one that I rather like!

ASA gets 6ft. WOW - doesn't time fly?
Nik said on 1/Nov/18
@ TheBat - Your comment about Asa Butterfield is good to see!
TheBat said on 30/Oct/18
Yeah 6'0" is perfect. Asa is one of my favorite young actors and he's a cool guy from what I've heard.
MAD SAM said on 27/Oct/18
Good actor, I think he’s an easy 6 foot guy at 182.5 cm
Warren said on 14/Aug/18
Yeah, he's honestly a full 6'0" and my favorite actor!
Nik said on 31/Jul/18
It seems like he is height honest!
Allie said on 28/Jul/18
They say the reason why many child stars are average-short in height is usually on purpose. Can you imagine a tall teen star whose suppose to be playing a Middle schooler but is super tall for their age and taller then many of the other teens and maybe even some of the adults?
Joshua said on 21/Dec/17
6’0 exactly
Mimi said on 10/Dec/17
Rob didn't you have him at 184.5ish before?

no,he's sat on this mark for a while now.

Rob, I just saw several pictures of him and Nicolas Cage. Standing straight, Asa did kinda edge him out. Cage had more footwear.

Rob, I think 6'0.25" is more possible than say near 6'0". He slouches with harrison ford who is forcing his posture.
Editor Rob
I think about 6ft is still fair for Asa.
Victor Surratt said on 13/Jan/17
Rob, he have 19 years old in 2017, i don know if he grow up more actually. What do you think it will be his final height Rob?
Editor Rob
he might have hit his peak height now.
Giorgi said on 2/Jan/17
So, you don't even consider growing after 20, Rob? :)
Editor Rob
it's only a few percent who gain anything noticeable after 20.
Yes yes said on 25/Dec/16
Rob, do you think he still has a chance of reaching 6'1?
And is it possible that he is 6'0.25 now?
Editor Rob
I've not really looked at him for a wee while, I might keep an eye in 2017 and see what his final height looks to be.
Giorgi said on 24/Nov/16
I'm glad he's turned out one of the fewest examples of a child star grow up tall.
MrTBlack said on 2/Oct/16
Yeah he had a late spurt but would say more like 5'11.5".
xaoxio said on 2/Oct/16
Rob, can you take a look at recent photos with Asa Butterfield? Most likely hes 6'0" but still what do you think his height is based on recent photos?
Editor Rob
he can look near it
Ryan Allen said on 1/Oct/16
Not one celebrity on this site that has a claim of 6'0 feet people can agree on? either that person 5'11 or 5'11.25 or 5'11.75, there are people in the world is just plain 6'0 feet people! Lol
John said on 18/Sep/15
@kar, when I turned 14, I was somewhere between 5'3 and 5'4. I'm 17 now and I'm standing at 5'11.5/ 6'0 tall. So yeah, you're very likely to end up being 6'0 at least. But it also depends on your growing period, cause you might be done growing in 2 years time.
kar said on 8/Sep/15
i just turned 14 around 5,8 or 5,9 will i be 6ft whem iam 18 or 19
Maxman said on 4/Sep/15
Rob how tall he was in the Movie Enders game? He looked about same height as Eli Steinfield. Looked 5'7 to 5'8
Editor Rob
would have said roughly 5ft 7 range.
AJ said on 26/Aug/15
Looking at the trailer for 10,000 saints. If ethan hawke is 5'10.75", Asa is clearly 5'11" range. I think an anonymous peach is right he might have gained a little is more likely to be around be 181-182. 183 is probably what he hits or clears in the morning.
an anonymous peach said on 10/Aug/15
16 years old - 5ft 10/178cm
17 years old - 5ft 11/180cm
18 years old - most likely he's either 181 or 182cm and probably finished, might grow a fraction and reach 6ft if he's lucky.
Pedro said on 4/Aug/15
@AJ I think it's very likely that he is somewhere between 5'11"-6' and that he is basically rounding his height up.
Amaze said on 22/Jul/15
I do think he is 6ft tall, he turned 18 this year and alot of people do get their final amount 17-18. He was 178 in 2013, 180 2014, 183 now 2015 and that's it he won't grow anymore. Good height. He's tall. Lucky him.
mike said on 28/Jun/15
@MD exactly, that's what i meant(put aside my personal opinion of him still being 5'10)
AJ said on 26/Jun/15
While I don't doubt he's 6', I think the 5'11" listing was better until we get actual photo proof proving otherwise.
MD said on 22/Jun/15
@mike, I did not say exactly that, and, in fact, I do believe he could look the previous listing. I simply said that I haven't seen any recent photographs of the kid, and that we never change someone's height on their own personal claim minus corresponding evidence.

Pedro actually makes an argument for an exception worth considering, but at the end of the day, I am not for changing heights based on personal claims without corroborating evidence. One of the great things about this site is the very high threashold Rob usually requires for changes in either direction. I fear like this unilateral change without the photographic endangers the credibility of the site.
mike said on 20/Jun/15
I ABSOLUTELY agree with @MD, there is no evidence anywhere of him looking 6ft or in IMO, even 5'11, we can't just update his height because of his claim, if so then why don't just bump Justin Bieber's height up to 177cm seeing that's what he's claiming, point is, I really Don't think he's 6ft, and put aside what I think, there's no evidence of this.
Pedro said on 19/Jun/15
@MD I think what makes Asa's case different is that he only recently turned 18 and that his previous height claims were from when he was 16. Those are ages where a lot of boys are still growing. So I absolutely think that in a case like this we should give his claim the benefit of the doubt, unless there is evidence to the contrary. Of course this would be a different situation if he would have made that claim change at age 20.
But anyway, I think we will have the change to verify his height soon when his two summer movies come out.
an anonymous peach said on 15/Jun/15
AnaS says on 13/Jul/14
I don't think so. He's 17 already, there's no way he will grow 3 or 4 inches still (12-15 cm, no way!!). I know that boys grow later than girls but still after 17 the biggest growth is done and then it's time for readjusting.
Also, tall people use to grow faster than small people. That means that he may hit 6' or even 6'1''. Which, by the way, is a very good height (especially for an English man).


You never know, if he's a late bloomer and has good nutrition, he could really shoot up within next couple of years.
TJE said on 12/Jun/15
He might've grown a bit more. Idk; he's usually given me a weak 5'11 impression, but I'll keep an open mind for now.

MD said on 12/Jun/15
@But, that's not how we've ever done it here. We make note of claims on people's pages, but we've explicitly not take them as gospel truth, particularly lacking any other evidence. This is highly unusual. Sure, it's possible that he grew, but do we even have very basic picture evidence? We don't do "trust but verify" here...until, now, it seems. The only time we do that is maybe to start them out, but never afterwards to adjust a height.
Pedro said on 11/Jun/15
@MD I personally believe in giving personal claims the benefit of the doubt, unless there is some strong evidence suggesting the contrary. As Rob said, it is possible at his age that he grew a little more last year.
Asa has a couple movies coming out in the summer. So maybe we will have the chance to verify it soon.
MD said on 9/Jun/15
I mean, it's nice to think he's 6'0", but is there any recent photographic evidence? We've never changed someone's height based on their personal claim alone.

lol I'm exact asas age and 5'8. born a month later
everyone says that jax but usually its very small. e.g if your 6 at 18, max is 6'0.5 after that.
maybe asa will hit 6'0. his growth rate does match my brothers, and my bro ended up 6' around 17/17.5
AnaS said on 3/Aug/14
@Jax, that's what they say, but the growing between 18 and 21 y.o. is normally very small. About 1-2 cm maximum if you do grow at all. It's not a big change. I think that the major growing is between 14 and 17 for boys. So in Asa's case, I'd say he'd finish being in the 6'-6'1'' range. Or he may have stopped growing already (he's 17) and stays at 5'11'', who knows.
Jax said on 26/Jul/14
Once you reach the age of 21 you stop growing. I had a science class that studied the human body and growth spurts etc.
MrTBlack said on 18/Jul/14

Nope. This is it for him. He may be 6'0" but if he's this height at 18 then he's finished.
AnaS said on 13/Jul/14
I don't think so. He's 17 already, there's no way he will grow 3 or 4 inches still (12-15 cm, no way!!). I know that boys grow later than girls but still after 17 the biggest growth is done and then it's time for readjusting.

Seems like when his body was growing, his head didn't get the memo to grow too
Pedro said on 16/Feb/14
@guitargod Because Asa was only 15 years old while shooting "Ender's Game" and was around 5'8" at that time (spring 2012). But he clearly grew a few inches since then.
guitargod said on 15/Feb/14
Folks, How can Asa Butterfield be any taller than 5 9? In the scene in Ender's Game when he is standing next to Ben Kingsley, he is clearly no more than an inch taller than Kingsley. I think you need a re-evaluation on this one.
Pedro said on 13/Feb/14
In this recent interview Asa said that he is "almost 6'": Click Here
And in this recent pictures he gives the impression to have grown a little during the last year: Click Here
Maybe an upgrade to 5'11"?
Editor Rob
yeah he could have gained a bit more now.
Anon said on 6/Jan/14
He is slightly taller than ben kingsley, however I suspect he's closer to 5'9" than 5'10", I think 176-177 sounds more reasonable
MD said on 28/Oct/13
Harrison isn't even a full 5'11", anymore. I've been shocked by how much shorter he looks. He's lost quite a bit of height.
Conti said on 24/Oct/13
In that picture you have pedro Asa looks about the same height as Harrison Ford.Asa is wearing 2 inch footwear,because Harrison Ford is now 5'11.Asa makes himself 5'9.

@PhoebeA When was the last time you saw him? Were you wearing heels? If yes, then it is completely natural that he was shorter than you.

Hailee's wearing 4inches heels and Asa... well, I believe that those shoes add around 1,5inch, maybe? I believe that he's 5'10 claim is fine. What do you think Rob? Thanks!
Editor Rob
those type of heels would give her about 3 inches of actual height, there might be about 1.5-1.75 difference between their footwear. I think 5ft 10 range like he said is believable and might still gain more height.
Tybor said on 31/Oct/05
I wondered how he looked the same height as Shaw, when she made Jonathon Brandis look puny when she appeared in Lady Bugs.
