In my opinion, Whishaw has over 5ft 9. Here are some of his photos next to Andrew Scott from 2015: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
I can see a good 1.5 inch difference between them, so if Andrew really has 5ft 8 then Ben can be even 5ft 9.5, but if Andrew only has 5ft 7.75 it still makes Ben 5ft 9.25. Rob, he definitely needs an upgrade.
5ft 9.25 is a chance for Ben, more than it would be for him to be just under 5ft 9

Not sure he looks a full inch shorter than Craig: Click Here

He's definitely at least this height as he was taller than 5'8" Andrew Scott at the Spectre red carpet. Though, I definitely see why he gives off a shorter appearances. He doesn't have a confident stance.

Certainly looks it in London Spy next to Jim Broadbent. Terrific actor

He's definitely a couple of inches shorter than Romola Garai in "The Hour" and while she's clearly a tall woman, I doubt she's more than 5'10" - I'd put Whishaw at 5'8".

5ft 9 seems too much for him, he is not much taller than Dustin Hoffman on the movie Perfumist

5'8 - weak 5'9, in the Perfume: Story of a Murderer he looks like 5'4, but the character of that movie is supposed to be quite short.

Rachel Hurd-Wood is 5'4.5 and Ben Whishaw's 5'9"

5'8 or 5'9, i think he looks more like 5'8 tbh. Great actor!
Paulyn said on 8/Jan/09
great actor! and yeah, i think he is about 5'9, but sometimes he looks shorter more like 5'8 or even 5'7.

If he's an inch taller than you, that'll make him 5'8. Did RADA/his agency add on another inch to him?

Ben Whishaw and I used to date. He is one inch taller than me, and I'm 5'7. There. Mystery over.

5'9 seems right, standing next to 5' 8 1/2 Jessica Schwartz in heels at the Perfume premiere.
He comes off as shorter because of his thin physique.

More like 5'6.5 or 5'7. He was looking up at 5'10.5 Daniel Craig during the "club scene" in LAYER CAKE, and when he runs during the "warehouse raid" there's no way he could be 5'9 next to 5'4 Burn Gorman. Maybe 5'9 with 2 inch shoes.

Yes I saw him on tv and he stated as being 5'9 tall. A very shy and smart guy.

I saw the perfume yesterday, very good interpretation by Ben Whishaw, 5'9 is the height I'd have given him too !
