Bill Skarsgard's Height
6ft 3 ¼ (191.1 cm)
Swedish actor best known for playing Roman Godfrey on the TV series Hemlock Grove and Pennywise in film IT. He is listed 191cm on his agency page, a height which he himself claimed in an interview when asked how tall he was: "1,91. Men Sam, min yngsta storebror är 1,98. Pappa är 1,93. Farmor är 1,80. Det är ovanligt med en så lång gammal tant. Så
det är väl där längdgenerna kommer från."

@Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173)
We do use kg for weight measurement and cm for height measurement here in my country Viet Nam too.
About Bill he definitely look this range and appear really tall in It. But his brother Alexander sometime can look 4-5 cm taller than him.

He is one of the true lister height tall and handsome Swedish actor... sometimes, if person gives his or her height with centimeter instead of inches like here in US, it could be more accurate than just inches like two guys both claimed 6 footer as an example, A guy can be 1cm taller than B guys like that.. I do know most of the countries including my country China uses metric system for weight and height and distances etc unlike US which doesnt use those metric systems for measurement... I am happy to go with this handsome swedish actor as 6ft 3 quarter like he claimed....

It’s great that he is honest and I am so pleased to give him his 100th comment!

I have actually got round to watching the remake of 'It'. My boyfriend assured me that it is quite funny, but I haven't laughed once - yet!
We've only seen Bill in the sewer so far and he bit the arm off a trusting little boy who was trying to retrieve his paper boat. His mouth was dripping with blood and he looked nowhere near amusing, but then I have never liked clowns anyway; horrible things! 🤡😝
I can't see it being long before we see the full elongated version of Bill, and then I will be able to size him up properly. I don't recall ever seeing him in anything so far. What a weird and creepy introduction!
But the kids are lovely little things... 👧👦👌😁
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 9/Aug/19
With a height like that, over 6ft3, Bill was a natural choice to play Pennywise the Clown in the remake of Stephen King's 'It'. I hear they've done a follow-up too!
Bill turns 29 today so...
🎁🎂🤡🎈 Happy Birthday Bill! 🎈🤡🎂🎁
Have a great time with your supersized, as in super TALL, family!
6ft3.5 is my Birthday guess for Billy-Boy.
berta said on 23/Jul/19
looks 191-192 most of the time but if he claims 191 then i guess he is that height. He and Gustaf looks about the same height
Oneiroi said on 20/May/19
Bill solid 191ccm
Gustaf solid 190cm
Alexander decent 194cm

A lipstick-loving 6'3" range guy
Wayne said on 14/Sep/18
Strangely he refers to his father as a 193 cm man and himself as a 191 cm man while he is visibly taller
said on 12/Sep/18
Rob, do you think Bill Skarsgard could be 'added' to the 'Horror Actors' or nah?
I can't wait to see him in IT: Chapter 2!
Not sure on that one.
hal said on 15/Aug/18
Is he wearing lipstick in that picture? XD
And he's a strong 6'3", I'd say. Another one of Stellan's genetically gifted children.
Tall Sam said on 22/May/18
@Monkey knees, there's almost no way he's that short especially in the morning.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 20/May/18
Then Papa Skarsgard gets 6'1" (which I find bizarre).
Monkey knees said on 19/May/18
6'2.5 morning height.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 17/May/18
You're right. There are times that Gustaf tends to position himself to look taller. Bill stands a loop--or he's very loose in posture.
Gustaf Skarsgard = 6'2 7/8ths" -- 6'3" flat.
Bill Skarsgard = 6'3 1/8ths" -- 6'3 1/4" depending on the day.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Apr/18
Bill maybe a small fraction taller than Gustaf. He could measure 6'3.25" early in the day.
said on 11/Apr/18
Here’s a photo where Bill looks taller than Gustaf.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 4/Apr/18
@Rampage Actually, the more I see Bill and Gustaf, the more I noticed that Gustaf tends to position himself to look taller while Bill is very loose in posture--standing a loop.
Notice that Gustaf tends to position himself higher while Bill stands a loop.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Mar/18
Both really look around the 6ft3 mark. Gustaf can also appear taller than Bill at times. Both generally look a good inch below Alexander and a good inch above Stellan.
Sean73 said on 21/Feb/18
This listing is fair. I think the Skarsgards and the Gronkowski's should see which family can eat the most!
said on 12/Feb/18
Rob, are you sure Bill edges out Gustaf?
The closer it is between them, the harder it can be to tell them apart!
Johno said on 1/Jan/18
It is a probably the combination of talent, decent looks and family connections that there are soo many Skarsgards you see on Primetime entertainment. Providing that Skarsgard boys were a bit above in looks, they had a talented father who was always going to nurture them and get them various slots. Talent is innate but it can also be nurtured. They are all pretty tall too.
said on 27/Nov/17
Rob, he also edged out Gustaf in this gif.
Alex 6'3 said on 24/Nov/17
Maybe he's not a 191 cm, because his brother Gustaf is always taller than him in all the photo, and Gustaf can't be taller than 6'3..
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 23/Nov/17
Ah s#@!...... Rob, there is also 'Sam Skarsgard' and more and more and more Skarsgards!
said on 23/Nov/17
Rob, every time a 'wild Skarsgard' appears, we should probably say 'F#@! it! They're over 6'0" for sure!"
Editor Rob: wait until the current generation have kids of their own, you never know, there may be a shorter than 6ft appear!
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 23/Nov/17
LOL that was beautiful Rob! 😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣
Anonymous said on 13/Nov/17
gustaf looks taller than bill in all of their pictures together
said on 31/Oct/17
Rob, how tall do you think Valter is? IMDb claims 6'3½'' but he is definitely shorter than Bill or Gustaf based on pictures I found from Google. Somewhere in 6'2 range maybe?
Editor Rob: how many bloody skarsgård's are there? Seems one pops up every year from out the closet!
His agency lists Valter as being 194cm!
said on 29/Oct/17
Might've been posted before somewhere, but the director of It, Andres Muschietti, is taller than him, looks like a good inch difference, so Andres might be around the same height as big brother Alexander. Muschietti also looked more than 2 inches taller than Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Muschietti has mentioned Bill being intimidating as Pennywise due in part to Bill's height of "six-four" and that he looked seven feet on camera.
said on 29/Oct/17
rob, who has the longer head him or alexander?
Editor Rob: from looking at them, it's harder to tell, but I think possibly Alexander by a small amount.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 24/Oct/17
I’m sure they had a good father who was very good in acting!
said on 18/Oct/17
Rob, this is my opinion, but he really nailed the part of Pennywise (I’m a Stephen king fan though!)!
Editor Rob: I think the Skargard lads had a good Father to learn some acting tips from!
Jake said on 17/Oct/17
He's 6'3 max.
Canson said on 8/Oct/17
Johno said on 6/Oct/17
With his proportions, looks taller than his older brother but is actually shorter.
Overall a decent actor although some of his critics call him some what of a clown ...
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 5/Oct/17
He really can act very well!! I saw ‘IT’ several days ago and damned! He nailed it as Pennywise!!
Jjak said on 2/Oct/17
Wow this kid can act and looks very tall onscreen.
Stills more helpful for comparison looks solid 6 3.
Could be a smidgen either side tough to tell.
184guy said on 30/Sep/17
He looks almost 2 inches shorter than Alex in ''It '' premiere
Slim said on 29/Sep/17
191 area(6'3.5") needs an upgrade.
said on 23/Sep/17
My guesses for the Skarsgård family:
Alexander = 194cm
Bill = 191cm
Gustaf = 190.5cm
Stellan = 190.5cm peak 188cm today
Valter = I don't know, Click Here
that site claims 194cm, but there is a picture on google when he was 20 at a Star Wars: The Force Awakens red carpet and he was shorter than Gustaf...
Then there are the non-actor Skarsgård's - Sam, who is 196cm on IMDb and Stellan's only daughter Eija, is 179cm according to Google
Everyone in that family is very tall :D
Willes188 said on 23/Sep/17
Alex has always been a downplayer, solid 194cm
Wayne said on 19/Sep/17
how Alexander who claims to be 6'4" manages to look so much taller than his brothers and Joel Kinnaman ? his posture must be perfect
said on 15/Sep/17
The average guess system was a good idea from the scratch but the system is flawed thanks to downgraders with no proof or evidence just getting their saying.
Editor Rob: I think there's an equal proportion of those who think 2 inches lower or higher for some celebrities...
In Bill's case, the overall guess is nearly the same as what he's listed.
Mark(5'9.5") said on 14/Sep/17
I honestly can't blame Bill
Willes188 said on 14/Sep/17
Rob could you add IT in the description? Also what is more likely for Bill in your opinion 6'3 or 6'3.5 ?
Willes188 said on 13/Sep/17
I just watched a interview from the new "IT" where they asked all of the other actors and actresses what surprised them most about Bill... Can you guess what they all said?
He has to be sick and tired of people always bringing up his height.
Agreco4l said on 11/Sep/17
said on 10/Sep/17
Hey Rob, how tall is the director of the recent "IT" movie starring Bill Skarsgård? Here is the director and Bill: Click Here
Editor Rob: could be 6ft 5
Jacob said on 9/Sep/17
I saw him next to his brother Didn't think they where much off
Logan Johnson said on 8/Sep/17
Hi rob what would you say his height is at night and evening
said on 7/Sep/17Click Here
His brother Alexander seems to have way more than 1in advantage over his brother.
even said on 20/Jul/17
a decent 6 foot 3 dude
S.J.H said on 28/Jun/17
The Skarsgard lowest evening/night/before bed:
Papa Stellan - 187.5cm
Big Alex - 193.0cm
Gustaf - 189.5cm
Bill - 190.5cm
Mark(5'9.25") said on 27/Jun/17
Solid 6'3.25". Similar to Roland Mann in person.
Borats Chicken said on 29/Mar/17
Rob, you should add 'it', he plays Pennywise (clown) in the movie.
berta said on 24/Mar/17
this guy is no way shorter than his cliam. he is 191 and in the morning he is 192,5 wich he was measured in one of his movies. and that scene was in the morning when he was going up from bed he also weight himself and i think he weoght 82 kg. but that was maybe 5 years ago
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Mar/17
Bill looks different facially to his Dad and brother Alexander and he has dark hair instead of the more commonplace blond in Sweden! But he certainly has the Skarsgard height!
I haven't seen him act though and my opinion about his facial characteristics could change if I did, not to mention, there is such a thing as hair-dye!
But his height is typical Skarsgard! I go along with 6ft3.25 as I have no right to say otherwise, having never seen him in action!
S.J.H said on 8/Mar/17
Bill is 190cm, gustaf 189cm and big brother alexander a true 6'4
growtallerguru said on 6/Mar/17
it would be so cool to be his height and proportions, he's definitely 6'3.25" to 6'4". agencies sometimes lower height so as not to limit actors roles. side note this whole family is proof that the swedes are all giants. other side note: I'm on day 29 of my grow taller program and have grown 1.15cm
S.J.H said on 22/Feb/17
Lol dad 6'4 is no way. Stellan at most 6'3 peak or 190cm and 6'2 now
berta said on 8/Feb/17
i can translate what he saying if anybody wants to know. "191 but Sam, my youngest bigbrother is 198 cm. Daddy is 193. Grandmother is 180. Its unusuall with a old lady that tall.I guess thats where the height-genes come from" thats pretty mutch excactly what he said.
said on 7/Feb/17
rob you should put that on the top so peaople can se that it really comes from his mouth. thanks
Editor Rob: yes berta, I have added the line in now.
said on 1/Feb/17Click Here
rob cased closed. they ask how tall he is in swedish. ANd he asnwer " i am 191". He also say that stellan is 193, that is strange because he himself always say 191. His tallest brother is 198 and he also say that gis grandmother is 180 cm
Editor Rob: the Skarsgard brothers are quite honest heightwise...
berta said on 18/Dec/16
192 is good for him ore very strong 191 guy i think he is right beetween the two
Ibracadabra said on 5/Dec/16
Rob, for me he looks taller than Chris Hemsworth by near an inch, what do you think ?
Slothee said on 6/Oct/16
One thing I've noticed about all the Skarsgards is that they're all very honest about their heights! Like all of them are around 1/8in or around 2mm over the heights they each claim.
Willes189 said on 14/Sep/16
191.5-192.5cm is what he looks like 99% of the time, he even got measured at 192.5cm once, and he always claims it himself. That agency is not relieble at all, he probably just asked bill how tall he was, Bill likely said that he's 192 or a bit over 6'3, or just 6'3 to male it easy, that listing is not reliable at all, they never are
Canson said on 11/Sep/16
@Willes189: your standard is slightly different from the norm on this site. You are 188.8 at your lowest and 190.5 out of bed so you say you are 189-190. Easily said that he can be 190.5 at his lowest but you would make him 191-192. Rob's standard is 5 hrs awake and after that the diff is minimal maybe 0.2-.3 till bed. To split the difference I'll call him 191cm. Don't honestly see a difference between someone falling to 6'3 or 6'3.25. You do because you feel the need to eek every single tenth out of your height tho
Willes189 said on 10/Sep/16
Flat 6'3 is a joke for this guy
Canson said on 8/Sep/16
No Willes189 or Willes190 or Pucko whatever your name is these days. I am 194 CM at my lowest which is 6'4 3/8 since you sound dense and insecure. Only said it specifically on every page I've commented. And every time. But yours changed from Willes 190 to 189. Hmmmm???? Oh and I actually refer to myself as 6'4.5 most of the time in my posts if you look when I could say 6'4 or even 6'5. Don't see why it makes a difference. So no I don't think everyone is shorter. Go look at my posts for renaldo or Kevin Durant or Garnett. So no don't go saying I make people shorter just because you have a crush on these guys and want them to be taller. You know they crucify people like Ice for thinking 6'2 is short and his comments. But You are by far as dumb and inept as Ronster was and are the biggest joke on this site. "Berta I think your friend is downplaying his height". Berta knows how tall his friend is im sure and his friend does as well. There is something called measuring tape that is scientifically used to do that and their is a highly qualified individual called a doctor that I think I'd trust over a complete TROLL and invalid like you. And yes Berta has far more credibility on this site than you do. At least he can keep one name and doesn't get himself banned from here by going off on tangents because he is unhappy with how tall he was born and is. Oh and "It's disrespectful to downgrade Paul Walker to 6'1". If he really was 6'1 how is that disrespectful? You or I or anyone who hasn't met him doesn't know so stop saying "trust me on this Rob" or "I guarantee you". None of us know. You don't know a damn thing and haven't met even half of these people. You "assume" and want them to be a certain height so if someone says their less you see that as a sign of disrespect. But That is your opinion not the truth. And just because someone doesn't agree with your fetish of making men taller doesn't mean you need to put them down. Willes, I honestly believe you have self confidence issues of your own since you like to make people taller and think you are full of it when you said your father posted for you and got you banned. That was all your work and your dumb opinionated self.
You have said people downplay themselves more than anyone I've seen in my entire life so I guess there is no point in going to a doctor anymore. We will start to send pictures to you to guess how tall we are so you can overestimate us and we will tell our doctors that so they can overprescribe us medication and kill us
Willes189 said on 7/Sep/16
I think Canson is taller then what he says he is, could he maybe be a downplayer? For some reason, he thinks everyone's shorter then what they a truly are
Willes189 said on 27/Aug/16
I can tell, and i know that Bill is a solid 6'3 range guy, he dosen't drop below 191cm at all, and is probably 193cm OOB. Classic 191-192cm guy! But his big brother still has him by 3cm!
Bill (191.5cm on average)
Alex (194.4cm on average)
Gustaf (190.5cm on average)
Stellan (189.5cm on average) Peak 190.7-191.2cm
Canson said on 20/Aug/16
@Matthew: Lol nope it's not you he absolutely has some on. I'd go with 6'3 flat for him

Famke Janssen seems strong and 182cm to 183 cm looks she is already 50 years old still seems to have mantindo height do not believe that bill is 6'3.25 closer to 6'3
berta said on 23/May/15
seems right 191-192 in thwe movie its probably early in the da. but still this is the lowest for him he is probably more 192

Andrea said on 15/May/15
What do you mean, Joe? I already saw those pictures, which are the only ones where he can look no less than this listing next to Alexander but of course i wouldn't call them reliable pictures since they're outside so there's always room for ground differences!
said on 14/May/15
Yes the film is in youtube, and the sceene begins at 9:26
What do you think Rob could he be a 192 guy?
[Editor Rob: it's tough to say without knowing if he was barefoot or if it was filmed earlier in the day...]

In the few pictures with Alexander, he looks noticeably shorter than him! I've found the movie "That one swede" talked about and looked for the part where he "gets measured", you basically see him standing under some kind of stadiometer and you can read 192.5 on it! In the previous scene he weighs himself, barefoot! But as far as we know he could be either in shoes or he could even be standing on a box (under the stadiometer) because you really can only see his head and a few marks on the stadiometer...
That one swede said on 8/May/15
It was without shoes
Sam said on 7/May/15
Ironically, dad Stellan is the only one sinking below the mark, he looks more 6'2" these days at his age. If you see Stellan in Zero Kelvin, he could be one big, scary mofo, more bear than man, back 20 years ago.
Sam said on 6/May/15
Was it with or with shoes, swede?

Is skarsgard the tallest family in hollywood with every member atleast 6'3 or taller?

He actually meaured himself on screen in a swedish movie called ¨i rymden finns inga känslor¨. He was measured at 1,925m.

Arch Stanton,Sam still has that appear to be 6'5.25 (196)
Jakob said on 3/May/15
I didn't think he looked taller than Gustaf who you think is 190cm. Neither of them has especially great posture though, I guess that could make it hard to tell.
