How tall is Charles Dance

Charles Dance's Height

6ft 2 (188 cm)

Peak height was 6ft 3 (190.5 cm)
English Actor best known for roles in Alien 3, Last Action Hero, The Imitation Game and HBO tv series Game of Thrones, where he plays Tywin Lannister. His agency cv states he stands 6ft 3 (191cm), with weight 89kg (196 pounds). This photo is from Collectormania 2013, I think when standing tall he was near to 6ft 2 nowadays.

I don't follow fashion as it costs a bloody fortune and I hate shopping. Besides which, I'm 6'3", with especially long arms and legs, so I'm not an off-the-peg size. I live and die in jeans and sweatshirts, and prefer classical clothes that don't date and that I feel comfortable in.

I think he'd still measure around the 6ft2 mark now.

Solid, evening-time 6ft3 in his prime. Just watch For Your Eyes Only, China Moon and Last Action Hero for reference.

Rob not sure if you recall the moment vividly but just how bad was Dance's posture in this photo? I struggle to see him reaching 6'2 if it was just him bending his neck, was he bending his knees also or was it just very loose posture?
Editor Rob
I did actually quickly drop some height myself, but he dropped more - I felt in spine/hip.

6'1 for him today is still too low. Nothing under at least 6'1 1/2 today. I'm not saying Rob is a height god, but I'm pretty sure even he's able to tell the difference between someone who is 6'1 and "near 6'2". Bare in mind this just one photo so shouldn't be taken literally. I've seen plenty of times where Rob has met a celebrity twice, where they sometimes look way shorter than their listed height in one photo and then easily that in the other.
181cmguy said on 16/Sep/23
He could be dropping a bit more than an inch in that photo, also it maybe because of his head tilt, but at first glance I'd have guessed his forehead to be more than 4.5inches.

I'd never guess he was 6'2 though, I trust Rob's judgement most of the time, especially with people he's actually met, but his comment of how he "thinks" when standing tall Dance could still be 188cm raises my doubts. In his prime he was def 6'2 plus, in this photo he seems more 6'1 range.

When comparing him to Jeremy Irons(this is from 2006 btw!), I do feel if he stood at his tallest he'd edge him, but not by much. Irons was a legit 187(6'1 5/8) in his prime, both are close in age too, I can't see Dance being 1.5inches taller at any point in their lives.

Peak height: 189.2(6'2 1/2)
Current height: 185.4(6'1)

Not convinced he was the full 6'3, but he could look it in some scenes given his lean frame and authoritative presence, no thanks to his acting skills ;O
5'7 and a fraction said on 15/Sep/23

Nonsense. Also why would Rob overlist a guy by this much peak and current height?
Jordan87 said on 14/Sep/23
He has a 5'8 Eye level assuming he is tilting his head slightly more than Rob.

He is 6'0.5 tops with Rob at age 67. 6'1.5 in his prime. He gave the typical insecure male ego inch...or more !
5'7 and a fraction said on 8/Jun/23
I never knew he was in "For your Eyes Only". He was very young back then. Agree Rampage, Gothard passes for legit 6'2 there.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Apr/23
Here he is in For Your Eyes Only

I think Gothard could have been 6ft2 and change
Gerald S said on 24/Mar/23
Rob, could Dance please join the Bond Actors tag as Claus?

@berta said on 24/Jan/23

Are you referring to the movie "And then there were none"? If so, he could definitely still pass for near 6'3 then.
berta said on 24/Jan/23
i always thought 189-190 was closer at peak but saw some murder mystery film with him in it back at his peak and he did look the full 6´3. 190-190,5. But not a mm over 6´3.
5'7 and a fraction said on 11/Jan/23
Clearly losing a bit of height in this picture, so his poor posture here shouldn't be an excuse to estimate him lower. I can see about 6'2 today and a legit 6'3 peak.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Aug/22
6ft3 and a wafer peak is arguable
David Zelisney said on 9/Aug/22
Charles (famous in Jewel of the Crown) was shorter when sitting on the bog and getting bolts short at him by Dinklage. lol.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jul/22
I think he can still make 6ft2 if measured
Darksol64 said on 10/Jun/22
To be 6'2 his eyes should be a solid 1.25-1.5 inches over Rob's head, which I think would be the case if he straightened up. Losing a lot of height, probably hunched a little plus pointing his head down a bit.

6'3.25 peak and 6'2 with Rob. Not sure in the year 2022 but I'll still put the 6'2.
Ian Momo 'Questionable 5'10' said on 1/Jan/22
As listed, 6'3 peak, 6'2 in this photo, maybe he would lose fractions of an inch from now on
Keep Walking Tall Like Rop Baul said on 6/Sep/21
he;s not stand straight on the photo so he would got close to 6'2. younger maybe an inch taller
Ian555 said on 14/Aug/21
Hi Rob,

When do you think Dance shrank to 6’ 2”? Was it before Game of Thrones?
Editor Rob
At some point in early to mid 60's I feel began to lose and then by 70 down to 6ft 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jun/21
Editor Rob
Cosmo is standing well, Dance is standing a bit more looser for sure.

Yeah you're probably right. In reality, Charles probably has at least an inch on James
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/May/21
The difference between him and Cosmo is indistinguishable next to Rob
Editor Rob
Cosmo is standing well, Dance is standing a bit more looser for sure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/May/21
berta, I disagree...I think Charles in his prime was minimum 6ft3. Made Schwarzenegger look 6ft1 tops in Last Action Hero
berta said on 1/May/21
i believe he was 189,5 -190 not the full 6´3.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Apr/21
hmmmmm....I think Charles has a slight edge over Jeremy

Looks about the same height as Jeremy Irons here, 2006.

If they make a movie on Prince Philip, he’d be a shoe-in for the part
Eusebiu - 6'1" (185 cm) said on 15/Apr/21
Very tall guy for sure - even now in his mid-seventies he still has the edge on Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (listed 187 cm).

Peak - 190 cm
Current - 188 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Mar/21
he looked no less than 6ft3 with Arnold...
Hong said on 10/Nov/20
Click Here He looks 6ft3 easly here with 5 ft9.25 Eddie Murphey,he also looked a good deal taller than Arnold,even when Arnold had his cowboy boots on.
Rick Havoc said on 3/Nov/20
The powerful screen presence of his in GoT makes him seem a foot taller, at least :p
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 28/Oct/20
Like Ted Danson he might be 6'1 3/4 but Ted is more a flat 187cm.

🎁🎂🎈 Happy Birthday Charles! 🎈🎂🎁

Congratulations to Charles Dance, who is today celebrating his 74th Birthday. He is wished a very happy family get-together with his wife, his 2 daughters and his son, not forgetting to mention all his friends and other family members. 🥂

Peak - 6ft3
Now - 6ft1.75 😁👍

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Oct/20
He might be starting to dip under 6ft2 now but peak I would’ve said a decent 6ft3 if not even a fraction over. Watch China Moon, absolutely looms over Ed Harris and more than an inch taller than Benicio Del Toro
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Aug/20
Last Actuon Hero is the one movie where Arnold overall looked like a regular dude...did not look imposing at all. Next to Tom Noonsn and Charles Dance he looked barely over average height. True Lies and Terminator is a different story though.
OriginalAnon said on 6/Jul/20
Yes, Arnold looks about 6'1'' max there. I still think Arnold in his prime was close to 6'2'' but he ended up losing height rapidly.

This is also a funny photo of big Rob. It looks like a scene from a film where Dance has opened the door to the police and has told big Rob to smile and pretend he has not been taken hostage.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Jul/20
Honestly, Arnold looks more 6ft1 flat there
OriginalAnon said on 1/Jul/20
Fair points. I must have been so enamoured by Arnie to have thought nothing of Dance's height. Very strange. Looks about 6'3'' there.
Jam Cherry said on 4/Jun/20
Peak 191 cm currently about 187.5 cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/May/20
He looks every bit of 6ft3 in that clip with Arnold
Editor Rob
Yeah a peak Charles at 6ft 3 always seemed fair
ladeez said on 9/May/20
lost 1.5 inches of height as of may 2020
OriginalAnon said on 28/Apr/20
I can't often comment on this one. I have only ever seen him in "Last Action Hero" years ago. I remembered him as maybe 5'10'' or something. Jeez.

Here is a little Reminder of Arnie having to gaze up to Charles eyes.

🎈🎂🕯️ Happy Birthday Charles! 🕯️🎂🎈

I have been watching Mr Dance since I was a youngster. Today he turns 73. He's been the star of so many classical movies, and excelled in all.

I wish him a very Happy 73rd Birthday. He's always looked very tall so I will give him 6ft3 peak and 6ft1.75 for today's height.

Nik Ashton said on 30/Sep/19
He’s stooping!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/19
Looked a very solid 6ft3 in Last Action Hero. With his frame probably could get 6ft4-5 guesses
Epoc said on 24/Aug/19
Wow he always manages to look so imposing
Yang (5 footer 8, 172-173) said on 16/Aug/19
Agreed with what Bobby said regarding his current height. He is more of 6ft guy than 6ft 2..... I would guess him similar range with former US president Bill Clinton.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 4/Jul/19
I do like Charles's funny new advert - quite a refreshing change from his part in 'The Imitation Game'! 😁

6ft3 peak and an inch less today.
The Horse of FUNK said on 4/May/19
LOL even for convention photos this man still manages to look imposing. Rob looks a little uneasy, too. It's like this is Charles' photo, not Rob's, and he's staring into your soul, while Rob is along for the ride.
Editor Rob
At least he did stand after his first event. As I mentioned about 6 years ago, at his first event 12-13 years ago there were some Alien Cosplayers, which honestly were stinking and they got a photo with him standing...he had a word with the photographer and then sat on a chair for the rest of us.

Probably needed to recover 🤢
Euro said on 25/Apr/19
I think he is 6'1.25 - 6'1.5 range now..
Mincer said on 19/Apr/19
Rob, is it possible he has shrunk a bit more now?
Editor Rob
Not seen him up close for a couple of years now...but in photos with others, I think when he stands tall he's still close to 6ft 2 now.
Bobby said on 24/Jan/19
I'm only seeing 6ft for this guy based on the mugshot lines.
Neelasish Sen Roy said on 30/Oct/18
So it is not possible to be 6'4" at his peak,Rob?
Editor Rob
I've never seen anything to suggest he looked that tall in the 80's and 90's
Neelasish Sen Roy said on 27/Oct/18
It is possible that in his youth he was 6'4" or even 6'4.5"? In some comments I have read that Charles Dance would be 6'4", It is possible,Rob?
Editor Rob
I cannot believe he was ever that tall. An honest 6ft 3 though.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Jul/18
Just watched a movie he was in with Ed Harris called China Moon and he looked very tall, at least 6ft3
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Jul/18
His head move forward down that drops two inches. If he manage to keep up posture head up would be 6'2. He look 6'2-6'2.25" with 6'0 Theo James.
Glunge said on 2/Mar/18
I'm a weak 5'11" (180cm) and he was about 2 inches taller but if he stood up straight he'd definitely be about 3. This was recently though, so he'd lost a bit of height with age by the time I met him. A weak 6'2" nowadays, but he has the build of a man slightly taller.
Newman said on 2/Mar/18
Always thought this guy oozed menace in the roles I've seen him in. Judging by the picture, it looks like he's whispered something sinister into Rob's ear too.

Would have said 6-3 at peak height but seeing him here, maybe more 6ft 2.5.
Jaragon2k said on 1/Mar/18
Not even close @Adnan lmfao, this guy is at least 6'0.5 he's above 6' with his head bent down
James B 170.8cm said on 9/Feb/18
Really suprised he was as tall as 6ft3.
MAD SAM said on 15/Dec/17
He’s still having those dynamics of a 6’3” person body he might have lost an inch now but yea he’s definite 6’3” in his prime
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Nov/17
Peak: 191.3cm
Today: 188.5cm
Mark(5'9.5") said on 22/Sep/17
He was noticeably taller than Mark Strong even in old age and poorer posture.

Perfect listing for both. I would argue 6'3.25" and 6'2" at least now.
Slim said on 19/Sep/17
6ft2.5in glory days(189)
6ft1.5in today(186 range)
Bobby said on 10/Sep/17
I don't know Rob, he looks nearer 6'1 based on his eye level, rather than 6'2. I'd say his peak height was 6'2.
Editor Rob
he didn't stand as tall as he could there, he still seemed 6ft 2 range that day!
Ray said on 14/Aug/17
He was definitely over 6'3" in his prime, and I'd say he can still pull off at least 6'2" today.

Am I missing something? If his head was up and maybe standing tall he would reach 6ft1 according to the lines.

barely 190 peak and 188 today. could have been 6 foot 3 peak but i have a feeling he was 0,7 cm under it
Sandy Cowell said on 23/Jan/17
Wasn't he a stinker in 'The Imitation Game'?
He's a tall stinker though, and he looked noticeably taller than Benedict Cumberbatch, who is just under 6ft, in that thoroughly enjoyable film.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jan/17
He could pull off 6ft3-3½ range in Alien 3. At least 4in on Sigourney Weaver. I think peak he could have been similar to Gwendoline
JEREMY said on 28/Dec/16
Rob, do you think he could be a fraction over 6 ft 3 at peak ?
Editor Rob
I would say a classic 6ft 3 actor, now a classic 6ft 2 range.
A small bit over 6ft 3 is always possible.

To be fair, he definitely is taller than this photo, I'd say a decent 188cm today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Dec/16
Rob, would say this guy is taller in person than someone like Mark Gatiss?
Editor Rob
yes Rampage, he was a good inch taller than many 6ft 1 guys, he simply dropped more height, with everybody...if you went through all the photos at this event you wouldn't have thought he was 6ft 2.
185cmAriel said on 11/Dec/16
looks more like 185 cm max
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/16
Didn't look under 6ft2 in The Imitation Game.
Sandy Cowell said on 26/Nov/16
Rob - that is a mighty small 6 inches, if you don't mind my saying so!
I've seen Charles Dance in many things and I know he is tall, but perhaps he could be 6ft1 now! I'm going to have to settle for 6ft1, purely by using you as a measuring stick!
Editor Rob
Sandy, he has dropped more height than I did, he is nearer 6ft 2 at that moment.

Even with taller guys he wasn't standing at his tallest.
Tom said on 16/Nov/16
Looked shorter than Jaime in their first scene together in GoT. I'd guess around 6'1" today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Oct/16
Doesn't look anywhere near 6ft2 in the photo but I think he'd still stretch up to it just about if Rob were to measure him, maybe a little shy of it at worst
Ryan said on 13/Oct/16
by the way his hand is over you i thought he was going to **** you XD. in the pic looks like a 6' footer maybe 6' 1
Josh Jeffords said on 9/Oct/16
Tall guy some good acting he looked over 6 3 in early 90s.
Always in flat dress shoes this guy likely was over that in his youth.
Nice big brother pose he looks barely 6ft there.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Sep/16
Rob, could he be heading to 6ft1 now?
Editor Rob
you saw him in Imitation Game I think, he was still looking 6ft 2 then, I think over next 5 years though, that's an age range he may well drop half inch more.
Pierre said on 25/Aug/16
Look at others pictures in web Charles Dance and Gwendoline Christie=when she has about 3.5 inches max shoes and Charles about 1 inch shoes she towered him about 1/2 head imo.She's easily 2 inches taller than him when both are barefoot imo=Gwendoline 6"3.25 Charles Dance 6"1' max imo.
Edgar said on 16/Aug/16
So Robb, if you think that pic (of him with you) doesn't represent his actual height, then why you post it, please post another fair picture to stop this ridiculous endless debate
Editor Rob
it shows I met him and can offer an example of how an actor drops more height. Je wasn't a guy I thought would do any pose to try to get a better photo unfortunately.

Joke said on 14/Aug/16
Judging people heights by looking at photos is pretty unfair. Dance used to drop his height in so many photos he is in, he stood generally in poor posture. He often dropped his height in his hip and back and neck. Dropping height is his bad habit.

Great point, doggy! I agree Charles still looks 188-189cm with full posture. And when Gwendoline is not in heels they are close in height.

Stood behind him in a queue earlier this year and he is about 6ft.0 my height but has a noticble stoop - so upright about 6ft.2 and probably a strong 6ft.3 at peak.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/15
"Charles Dance's height is 6ft 2¼in (189cm)"

More than 2in on Benedict Cumberbatch in The Intimidation Game (I'm open to the possibility of Cumberbatch being a weak 6ft).

Possibly a strong 6ft3 peak. He was very tall in The Last Action Hero (about 2in on Schwarzenegger) and Alien 3 (4in on Sigourney Weaver)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jan/15
If Cumberbatch is 6ft, this guy is still a strong 6ft2

And look at this. Charles' body frame size is taller and longer than Mark.

He stood with a better posture in the 2nd.

He changed the stand position gradually and he finally stood in his best posture in the 3rd.

I thought it was his bad habbit stood with that poor posture, as you can see in your pic with him.

And I agree with you he wasn't a guy who would have done a back to back pose.
I found that facts in many pictures.

The best think for knowing his actual height is you come to him and ask him to stand at his best and measure his height.

You may delete my earlier post, Rob.

Are you sure Gwenn didn't wear high heels on that pic?
Concerned 181 cm said on 17/Sep/14
I don't doubt he was 6'3 at peak, I'm just saying that this picture must have him dropping about three inches in posture if he's 6'2 today (which I find to be plausible, he looks about as tall as Nikolaj). Just compare this picture to Rob's picture with Gwendoline, who is supposed to be just one inch taller.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Sep/14
He did look 6 ft 3 peak Concerned.

His posture must be terrible, because here he looks soooooo much shorter than Gwendoline Christie despite being nearly the same height according to you.

even though I did drop some height myself, I think he drops height in his hip and back, he looked still 6ft 2 standing tall, but I didn't think he was a guy who would have done a back to back pose or something like that.

Lost 3 cm? Does this make sense? How come? He looked sooo tall in Alien 3.

He is clearly taller than clive owen.

And the same height as gwendoline christie if he wore high heels

Perhaps he just lost 1 inch nowadays but he was 191 cm in his prime.

He was same height as Sacha Baron Cohen in Ali G. I'm pretty sure he is 191 cm.

His performance as Benedict in 1993's LAST ACTION HERO is still my favorite--he is such a terrific comic villain. Keep in mind Arnold's Jack Slater had a footwear advantage with the snakeskin cowboy boots and Dance was in dress shoes--and he still had a noticeable edge on a roughly 6'1" (at the time) Arnold. In his prime, he was an easy 6'3", and though he still looms tall and looks to be in pretty good shape considering his age, he's definitely not at peak height anymore. Rob, you nailed it and this photo is proof: 6'3" peak; 6'2" today at age 67. I'm surprised he took that shot with such poor posture: he generally is one of the better actors with regard to maintaining good posture.

Editor Rob
he stood generally with poor posture in most photos I watched...if you looked at all photos of him at this shoot you'd probably think 6ft -6ft 1 range today! Didn't think he would be a kind of guy to do a pose though like back2back, which I sometimes will ask if I think I can get a better photo for the site.

Great Performance in Alien 3.
Sam said on 17/Mar/14
He seemed to be pretty much the same height as Sacha Baron Cohen in the Ali G movie and Cohne seems to be a strong 6'3". Dance's height loss much be fairly recent.

how much do u weight rob?
Editor Rob

He looked huge in Alien 3 next to Sigourney Weaver. He was in some forgettable flick with Meryl Streep back in the 80s where he dwarfed her. I think he may have been a strong 6ft3 peak. He still looks minimum 6ft2 on GOT.

"Peak height was 6ft 3.25in (191cm)"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Dec/13
I actually thought him and Clive looked Pretty similiar.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Dec/13
6'3" peak without a doubt. Looks 1-1.5 on Clive Owen in Gosford Park. Lost a good inch at 67.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/13
Rob, was he a nice man?
Editor Rob
6 years ago he appeared at one of these events and I believe after a big sweaty guy in an alien costume was near him in a photoshoot he decided he wanted to sit on a stool...but I'm glad he stood 6 years later, yeah he is a smart man I think, he can give a stern impression
Manza said on 1/Dec/13
is 6.1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Nov/13
"Charles Dance's height is 6ft 1.75in (187cm)"

His peak is spot on though
Matt 184.7-186.7cm said on 26/Oct/13
Rob I notice you give old guys a boost to what they look in photos, do they lose a lot with posture unless standing tall?
Editor Rob
in this case he dropped at least an inch more height in the spine than me, I watched all the people in front and he rarely stood at his least he stood this time - 5 years ago he didn't!
Balrog said on 18/Sep/13
Ok then 187-188cm is possible.
Balrog said on 25/Aug/13
Rob how much height is he dropping here?
Editor Rob
I dropped about half inch, he dropped near 2 inches, at least watching him with others it seemed he'd drop an inch at least in posture every photo
Lurk said on 25/Aug/13
@Rob: I you didn't know this guy's stated height and just were to judge by looking at this photo - what height would you guess him at?
Editor Rob
in that photo nearly 184cm, but he was losing a bit more than me. In a bunch of photos with friends he looked about 183-4cm range, but standing tall I thought he was nearly 6ft 2.
Phantom said on 24/Aug/13
Looks 6'1" MAX to me.
Balrog said on 14/Jul/13
He was really close in height to Coster Waldau in GOT.
arnold #1 said on 12/Jul/13
tywin lannister looks 6'2
Ngrganto said on 4/Jun/12
Honestly i don't think he was ever over 190 CM. Probably 188 (6'2) at night , 190 (in the morning ) and 189 (6'2.5) during the day.
puchi said on 5/Feb/12
Clearly taller than Arnie in "The last action hero"
Rikashiku said on 13/Dec/11
He's slughtly taller than 6'2.5" Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Sam said on 7/Dec/11
In the Ali G movie, he was still the same height as Sacha Baron Cohen
Cranberries (18m, 193cm) said on 13/Aug/11
He has quite large hands and a large skeleton; he always strikes me as more like 6'4", but 6'3" is believable at minimum. For some reason, big hands just intimidate me and make people seem larger to me. lol
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/May/11
6ft2.5 now
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Dec/10
Looks nearer 6"2
Doug said on 4/May/09
Mmm he sure looked tall in For Your Eyes ONly in his prime, looked 6'3"-6'4". I think he is a legit 6'3" tall man and was similar in height to Ali G if not a little taller and Sacha Baron Cohen is a strong 6'3" himself. I could buy 192cm for Dance.
Dave said on 22/Dec/07
Charles dance is a legitimatley tall man, if anything his agency may downgrade his height as his area of expertise acting wise does not require height,.... i have seen him beside many other tall people, hes easy 2 inches taller than hugh jackman, and hes easily the same height as ali G, i would even estimate him as high as 6'4
Gonzalo said on 28/Aug/07
I saw him yesterday in Scoop and he looked huge. It is true that he was beside Woody Allen and Scarlet Johanson who aren`t really tall people. But next to them he looked taller than Hugh Jackman who was also in the film. He could be taller than 1`91
Adam Brennon said on 22/Aug/07
He's comfortably the tallest actor in Alien 3
sam said on 20/Jul/07
Looked about the same height as Sacha Baron Cohen in Ali G Indahouse Movie, so 6'3" would be right.
Claire said on 20/Jan/06
I met Charles Dance about a year and I am 5ft 10 and was wearing heels so was about 6ft and he still towered over me so I would guess a height more at 6ft 4 at least for him.... and he was oh so charming too! mmm!
