How tall is Ben Barrington

Ben Barrington's Height

6ft 4 (193 cm)

New Zealand actor, best known for playing Drew McCaskill in TV series Shortland Street and Olaf Johnson in The Almighty Johnsons. He once said of his commanding presence: "In real life @emmettskilton & l are a statuesque 6'4'', right in between will ferrell & stephen merchant"
I was bald by the time I finished drama school at age 24 and at first was uncastable because I was 6ft 4in with a bald head and a baby face. As you get older you grow into it. Height-wise, I shot up when I was about 16 which was awful. Just when you don't want to stand out I was covered in acne and a head taller than all my mates.

@Dream Ben could pull off 6'4 1/2 with 6'3.25" Emmett Skilton. I wouldn't give him below 6'4.25". Rob had under list him.
Dream said on 10/Jul/20

I definitely agree. He's kinda like Bo Burnham, in some sense. claiming something but are taller than they claim.

Surprise he didn't get any upgrade. Ben given a more stronger 6'4 impression than Jared Padalecki.

Rob, could you add Sam bunkall? He looks 6’2 on screen and off; please. He’s a mystery height and a good actor

Could fall into strong 6ft4

@Canson I totally understand your point of view.

It would be interesting to see Ben Barrington and Jack Swagger together. I think both of them will beat out guys like Jason Douglas.
Canson said on 26/Jul/18
Hmmm. I’m stumped. Part of me wants to say 6’4” but may be a tweener. A disjointed 6’4 (morning 6’4).
Dream(5'9.5") said on 19/Jul/18
I agreed with Junior. I wouldn't be surprised if he was very similar to peak Jeff Goldblum or Alexander Skarsgard
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Jun/18
Look to be slightly edge out most of 6'4 NZ actors. Possibly 6'4 1/4 and ignore 1/4 inch claim. Look as tall as peak Goldblum and Hasselhoff.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 15/Jun/18
@Christian he did say that, but check Junior’s links.

Ben definitely looks taller than Emmett.

I don't know about that. He said that Emmett Skilton (who's 6'3.25", not 6'4") and him are the same height.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 14/Jun/18
I might get a lot of hate, but he could 'potentially' edge out Jared Padalecki and be closer to 6'4 3/8."
Dream(5'9.5") said on 11/Jun/18
He's got to be over this Mark. Not nearly 6'5", but likely in a similar range to Peak Liam Neeson and Alexander Skarsgard.

He looks a big inch taller than Emmett Skilton who isn't under 6'3.25" with Rob!
Redwing said on 27/May/18
My bad then rob, what makes you think Ben is 1/4 taller? And do you think he has a 10 inch head or less?
Editor Rob
Well, there is always a chance of a guy being say 193.5cm and just says 193...I am not sure he has a full 10 inch head, maybe in 9.5-9.75 range.
Redwing said on 20/May/18
Hey rob, would you say San bunkall is 6'1? Could he get a page too pls?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure, he's one of the tens of thousands of possible names I sometimes will add...I can tell you though, he's down on his agency page as 183cm.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 18/Apr/18
Rob, would you say 6'4" 1/4ths is arguable for Ben Barrington?
Editor Rob
It could be argued.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 26/Mar/18
He also starred in Narnia.

No photos of them, but Ben could be similar to Peak Liam Neeson.
Redwing said on 17/Jan/18
Hey rob, "sam bunkall" who's another Shortland st star his cv says 6 ft but the man appears taller.
Editor Rob
Unfortunately don't know much about him. There will always be some people who end up underbilled at an agency. It's of course a rarer occurrence than being over-billed though!
Junior said on 9/Jan/18
Rob, do you think Ben could be similar to Ryan McPartlin at 6'4.5"? He really don't look that low at 6'4 next to Emmett.
Editor Rob
I think he's the height he claims to be.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Jan/18
A 6ft4 guy with impeccable posture. I could see a fraction over this actually. He looks 1in taller than Emmett...
Junior said on 5/Jan/18
There is no way Ben is only 6'4 if Emmett get away with 6'3.25".
