Christopher Lee is a very tall Sith Lord.
I think this guy rounds down, which many really tall people like to do.
I could believe 6'5" mabye 6'6?

He was counted as the tallest leading man decades ago, it wasn't a modern edition.

Curious about that mention of him being the tallest leading man. Isn't James Cromwell taller? Guess they didnt count him for the movie Babe since he technically wasnt the lead. :-)

"He is a massive, tall man, 6-6 or so. He takes three or four stairs in a stride. Watch THE HORROR OF DRACULA, watch him go up the stairs. He doesn't take steps. He covers them in bounds" - John Carpenter, 1998

I happened to watch an old Chris Lee movie the other night called The Wicker Man. Chris absolutely dwarfed everyone in that film. I don't think there was a single actor or extra that even came close. 6'5" is easily believable.

haha Hayden isnt 6ft, he looks like 7 inches shorter then Lee, I reckon hes like 5'11 odd, or Christoper Lee is 7 ft haha.
[Editor Rob: I mentioned how smitts seemed more than 2 inches taller in their 1 scene in star wars...and the kevin kline pictures with hayden do suggest this...]

Everyone else seems to say 6'5" for Lee as a younger man, but in his autobiography he says 6'4" at least a few times. Maybe 6'4" is his height as a more "mature" man...definitely a very tall man with good posture for someone in their 80s.

Sleepy Hollow is a movie of 1999 and he was 77 at that year. I think that he was really 6'5 ft at is peak.
