Can make an argument for 5’6” flat, but no more.

No way 5’6 looks 5’5

She is definitely little bit taller than 5ft 5 and half for sure but the pic seems deceiving because she wore 1.75 inch heels when she stood next to you in that photo...cant believe this one was taken way back in 2007 by the time it was my senior year from High School... PS. I love her unique name cause her name uses to describe a person who is compelling attractiveness and charms that can inspire devotion in others plus her Birthday is day after my gay husband whose birthday is on July 22 as border line of zodiac Cancer & Leo. Technically, My Gay husband July 22 is Cancer and she is Leo on July 23......

She may feel short on quite a few occasions in her life!

Check This photo. August looks enormous there, I think he is probably gaining some advantage, but when he stands tall he really is a big 6ft 3 guy.

@Christian: LOL

I'ms surprised that "Charisma Carpenter" is her real name. It sounds more like a stage name of some host from a home improvement show, lol.
Sarah said on 29/Mar/20
Looked about 5’6 at a recent con
Nik said on 6/Oct/19
Charisma was born in July 1970 and I have seen her listed as 5'7" (170 cm) on an online site! She can have her 70th comment!
Nik said on 6/Oct/19
Maybe "kinda tall" is apt!
Importer said on 24/Jul/19
@Christian 6'5 3/8"
I'd say 180cm is start for Amazonian, 175cm if being generous.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 22/Jul/19
5'5"-5'6" is Amazonian tall? Lol
Jammes said on 9/Feb/19
I think other sources listed her as 5'8 or 5'9,but crazy how shes closer to 5'6. Most of the actresses on Buffy were short, I think she wore boots and heels alot when she was on buffy and angel

She looks 5’6” to me at 167.5 cm

@ Sandy Cowell - You never guess how I found your comment? Via the "random celeb" route! The lovely Charisma Carpenter is one of Rob's random celebs! She looks positively radiant too!

The girl in blue, eh! That sounds like Twitty! I wonder if you will keep your old phone as back up in case you are not able to use your new one any time in the future!
Sandy Cowell said on 11/Jun/18
@ Nik - Yes, I do actually miss his silliness! He is next door, and I am keeping him charged so that I can access my phone numbers. Obviously, I have to enter them into my new phone. 📲

Twitty LOVES her new colour - and does Jaffa! Jaffa hasn't been able to keep his tentacles to himself since he set eyes on her in blue! 🐦🐝💕
Nik said on 9/Jun/18
@ Sandy Cowell - Hi!

And what a surprise it will be too, however let's face it you will miss 'im and his ways! You obviously have a very sensible phone who does as he is told! I hope Twitty likes her new colour!

She can 'ave 5'5.5" and assurance that I like her teeth!
Sandy Cowell said on 8/Jun/18
@ Nik - Well, now that I have a new phone, I'm beginning to see just how obedient a phone can be! I even have a working autocorrect, who doesn't think that everyone sits on the lavatory!🚽

I also have some nice new emojis, including a blue version of Twitty 🐦, Jaffa's 🐝 very best friend!

Today, Charisma can have 5ft5.75.
Nik said on 28/Jan/18
@ Sandy Cowell

I think he most definitely loves making mistakes, that is 'im in di phone and not your poor phone! It's like someone doing something wrong and their poor 🏠 getting the blame for it! Your phone merely houses 'im and takes all the 🔥 blame when he deliberately makes mistakes, oh yes, we've rumbled 'im, he's not useless, he knows what he's doing! What about the laptop you were mentioning last year?
You would have some great stories to tell the kiddies in an evening, I am sure you always have, but now you could get them in stitches by telling them what your naughty phone gets up to on Rob Paul's website and you could tell them about Twitty too!

Sandy Cowell said on 27/Jan/18
@ Nik - I actually do think that my phone loves making mistakes!
Earlier today, as no doubt you will read, I thought I was going to be without the internet AGAIN and I was seriously thinking of going for a completely new device, and I still might, or at least get something to back it up and as you can imagine, there have been no mistakes for ages! Ha ha to that!
Messing about like this reminds me of when I used to tell stories in the evenings to the kids I looked after! I'd make them all up and oftentimes, I would even have the kiddies believing that they were true! Jaffa the Bumble Bee would have been excellent to get carried away with, as you can imagine! And how about a phone who is deliberately naughty? They'd have loved that! 🍯🐝 📲👊

@ Sandy Cowell

Just as well I'm not in the public eye too, those home whitening kits produce very good results and are also not very costly!
She has a lovely name and I am sure that she has Charisma in abundance! I am sure that Charisma is as tall as 5'5.5", I think she could possibly pull off 5'5.75" but I will stick with my original estimate! I like it that Charisma claims to be "Amazonian tall", I am sure she knows that she is just a tiddly bit tall and she will be joking! She is certainly not average or tall, I think that she is a little bit above average or ever so slightly tall!
I like it that you claim 'im in di phone is making mistakes again, I wouldn't care but he is getting pocket money for the privilege of his errors! Let's be kind and just say he is making Miss-Takes, I am sure he is not doing it on purpose, aren't you?

Sandy Cowell said on 26/Jan/18
@ Nik - Yes, I agree she is far too pretty to have a boy's name, and her teeth are lovely and white and even, just like everybody seems to strive for in this day and age!
Personally, I would be over the moon to get my highlights refreshed; my teeth will have to do with a home whitening kit at best!
Just as well I am not in the public eye!
Nik said on 26/Jan/18
@ Sandy Cowell - Hi!

I don't think Charisma would agree either, do you?

As well as the T-shirts I like Charisma's name and teeth!

I reckon 5'5.5" is a good call! There are a couple of good pictures on this page, don't you agree?
Sandy Cowell said on 25/Jan/18
@ Rob and Jenny: Now that's one far-out, eye-popping T-shirt Jenny sports there! Charisma can have 5ft5.5, but I did think she was taller!

@ Nik - My phone, despite the new simcard, is making mistakes
again! 'He' considered Charisma was more of a Christopher than a Charisma! Personally, I do not agree!

@Rob she posed in the playboy magazine and her vital statistics are given here. Click Here
Editor Rob
usually for playboy an actress/model did provide their own stats, I will mention the measurements at the top. She's at an event this year, 10 years later maybe I should get her again and f**** smile in the photo this time 😁
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 29/Jan/17
Rob, was she just kidding around when she said she was Amazonian Tall? Because 5ft5.5 is not much above average range for women.
Editor Rob
Christian, she probably is half joking...
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jan/17
She is absolutely stunning on screen, much better than she looks in this photo. I saw her last night on a murder TV series as a presenter. An Amazon 5 ft 5 er LOL.
so said on 30/Sep/16
Amazonian girls were only 5'6. So she isn't far off being right.
avenger987 said on 14/Mar/16
Holy smokes I am shocked. Always thought she looked 5'8 in Buffy. Those heels played tricks... she also has model like proportions which make her look taller.
Marc said on 13/Sep/15

Not short and not tall so she is average?
CE2013 said on 17/Aug/15
She's 5'6/ 5'6.5. She not short and she not tall. She is in between.
Hypado said on 7/Jul/15
ricky says - I always thought that she was around 5-7 or so, much taller.

jake said on 5/Jul/15
5-5 flat seems right for her. She should stop claiming 5-7, it's kinda silly.

How do u know how much footwear they have
Editor Rob
I measured a lot of different types of heels and sneakers/shoes so I have an idea of when seeing an actor and looking at their footwear, how much it should be adding.

I might also try to find some photos from the event and see side on shots of the shoes. For women especially since they can suddenly gain several inches advantage!
jtm said on 17/Oct/13
5'4.5-5'5 is more realistic imo.
RentGirl said on 15/Oct/13
Yeah 5'5-ish. She's so pretty, was she nice?
Editor Rob
if you are a girl you had more chance of arm round her, but I think in the past she had some overzealous attention from male fan that made her request no hugging/arms at that time - no idea what she's like nowadays, she might have chillled a bit!
peanutJuice said on 14/Dec/12
Shes definitely 5'6
Len said on 13/Nov/12
She's probably 5ft 6. At least looks that way on Angel and Buffy.

one piece of ace!! and she looks about 5 ft 5 flat in my opinion
Editor Rob
she's definitely more 5ft 5-5.5 range than a crazy 5ft 7 range.

you can not tell that guy who is 6 ft is tall, especcialy here in Bosnia I feel very often short because most of guys are minimum 6 ft 1... ;) ;) ;)
yeahyeahyeah said on 7/May/11
yeah right six foot women LOL, those who claim 6foot are probably only around 5ft9 in reality. 6ft women dont exist, unless you hang out with basketball players. Germans arent even tall haha. 6ft-6ft2 is tall for a guy, 5ft8-5ft10 is average.
anything over 5ft9 or 5ft10 for a woman is not normal, IMO!
Andrew1995 said on 15/Mar/11
@ Candyman
nah, 6' would be perfect, at least in my country (Germany) :)
Candyman said on 23/Feb/11
Perfect height for a woman.
kelly said on 11/Jan/11
i've always envied her figure, and i've always guessed her height to be 5'7-5'8...she looks biracial like jessica alba or vanessa williams, they've all got that same gorgeous deep bronze would be so cool to have 3 of them team up in a movie...
xyz said on 24/Jun/09
I always thought she was taller but Sarah Michelle Gellar is tiny so maybe not. Her character on the show was a real princess so I guess she wore heels all the time. I think this is clearly a case of too much sun (look how tan she is)...nothing a chemical peel or laser won't fix. But she has nice features and bone structure and those things stand the test of time.
Josh.J said on 23/Jun/09
its just a ropey shot of her eyes that makes her look old. i've seen enough recent pictures of her to know she's not this visibly aged. anyway she looked fairly tall in angel but maybe she was wearing heels alot.
Anonymous said on 19/Jun/09
She will be in Slys new Movie The Expandables. Sure she will look gorgeous.
Joe257 said on 1/Apr/09
Sorry about my previous comments Olivia. I didn't mean to make it sound that Charisma is any less of a woman just because she aged some, she is still an attractive woman. I just stated a fact; I haven't seen Charisma look this aged so that's why I commented on it.
Vampiric said on 4/Mar/09
5'6 or so, yes. Indeed. :)
Donatello said on 2/Mar/09
A 5'5" women can be thought of short because they are short compared to the whole population, this is because men are generally 5 inches bigger then women on average. Although a 5'5" women compared to only other women would actually ben slighly above average. Like when you think of a women who is 5'7" you wouldn't think of her as a big person even though they are compared to averages, this is because women are just small in general.
J.Lee said on 22/Feb/09
Is she taller than average rob? how come five five maybe average or more yet when you hear five five, you think of a short women?

Editor Rob
she's on the top end of average I'd say, if you go with 5ft 4 as an average I guess.
steph said on 18/Feb/09
she looks so tall in BTVS though. probably because the rest of the cast was relatively petite.
Olivia said on 18/Feb/09
Hey Josh and Joe, for info Charisma is 38 and in a few months she will be 39 !
That's a bit normal, she doesn't have anymore her "teenage look" like in Buffy or even Angel...You guys can be sometimes so stupid and superficial !
To me now, she's becoming a real woman and she's not anymore a frivolous bimbo...But I suppose to appreciate that you must be a real man too ! !
Lmeister said on 18/Feb/09
I always thought that she is a bit taller. I guess she is one of those tallish looking women who you expect to be in the 5ft7-5ft9 range. Gotta say that women are also upgraded in the showbiz...
Yaspaa said on 18/Feb/09
Yeah she's a pensioner...nugget!
Josh.J said on 17/Feb/09
after watching her on angel for 5 years, the height seems about right. she's changed though, looks fatigued.
Alex said on 17/Feb/09
Rob, did you feel you had more an inch or 1.5 inches on her with her in heels? Looks anywhere from 1-1.5 inches difference.

I'd say she looks at least 5'5 at the minimum.

Editor Rob
as I said a while ago, in heels she was an inch smaller, and then the day she was leaving, in sneakers she looked nearer 5ft 5.
Olivia said on 15/Nov/08
Ho really ?
You say that with heels she's still smaller than you (and you're 5 ft 8), I just can't believe it !
She seems to me so long and slim but okay if you say she's still shorter than you with heels so you're probably right when you say she's a small 5 ft 6. Thanks Rob for this info !
Olivia said on 13/Nov/08
She gives me the impression to be at least 5 ft 6 and probably more like 5 ft 7, also she's very rangy (beautiful long legs) so that's maybe only visual but she looks definitely more than 5 ft 5.75 to me...

Editor Rob
trust the rob...this girl is 100% shorter than me when she is wearing heels.
Anonymous said on 7/Sep/08
Here's a pic of her with Susan Ward barefoot that shows her having practically NO height advantage over 5-4 Susan. Quite a surprise to me.

Kathryn said on 8/May/07
well, she looks that height but sneakers she would be 5'7'' then, haha. but barefoot she´s definitely 5'6'' or an half inch taller. seems to be several inches taller than sarah michelle gellar, too.

Editor Rob
In sneakers, she had on chunky looking, probably very close to my own, but definitely not over 5ft 6.5, but then not really sure if under flat 5ft 6...about that mark.

they were telling guys in her photo queue 'don't put your arm round her', I think in the past probably she had some over enthusiastic fan or something, hence she'll hug/touch female but didn't really put her hand on men in the photos with her. Fair play though, I remember in the past at another con she was sitting in a chair, and so were the people getting pics, looked pretty tacky.
Haylie said on 7/Apr/06
She doesn't look that much taller than Alicia Silverstone on Miss Match (she has a reccuring role as Serena Lockner) I thought she was about 5'6

I've mostly seen her listed as 5'7
