Having just seen Clare Higgins restored to wholeness in 'Hellraiser II', I'd like to know where she got the time to buy lovely floaty dresses, jewellery and get her nails done and hair coiffed to perfection! She's even more attractive than she was in the first one - and at least as evil.
Clare looks in access of 5ft5 next to Kenneth Cranham.

Well, fancy that? I noticed Clare's name pop up at the beginning of 'Midsomer Murders', so I decided to keep with it to see what Clare is playing. The episode is called 'Midsomer Rhapsodies'.
Then the phone rang and I had a 25 minute (to the second) conversation with my boyfriend, who jogged my memory about some funny quotations!
I saw enough of Clare though to see that she isn't far from her peak height, if at all.
I still see 5ft4 for Clare. 😁💐

How short is the first victim of Clare's Julia in the first 'Hellraiser' film? I'm watching it now and I noticed how small - and rude! - he is. I checked out the heel height of her shoes and they are about 2-and-a-half inches.
It's little things like this that led me to believe she was much taller than her 5ft4.

Clare is excellent in 'Hellraiser', a film which still cuts the mustard now. She looks softer with the longer, chestnut red hair, but regardless, she's elegant and professional in both 'Hellraiser' and 'Silent Witness', giving rise to a taller impression on the height front. Yes, when I saw 'Hellraiser', Parts One and Two at the pictures, which both starred Clare, she could have passed for 5ft5 or 6. In fact, that's what I thought she was.
But those cold eyes.... 😟
5ft4, as depicted above.

5'4" is fine

@ Rob - Too right they do! I thought Doug Bradley was about 6ft/6ft1 when I first saw it! The way his demon character was dressed added to that false impression, as did the fear that there was no escaping him once you'd opened the box.
I thought Clare was taller too, as she wasn't someone you could easily warm to, entrapping men and killing them to feed to and humanise her lover, who was paying the price for opening that darn box! When I saw her recently in 'Silent Witness', she tended to wear heels most of the time, thus looking taller than fellow five-foot-four actress Amanda Burton. The few times you see her without shoes, the actresses are neck-and-neck on the height front.
PS I did see 'Hellraiser' again extremely recently. My brother came in and said, "Oh no, not THAT again!"😜
Mind you, my Dad liked it! 😉👍
I remember listening to her once in a talk, and she talked with enthusiasm and had a bit of a laugh about acting.

@ Rob - It (as in 'Hellraiser') left such an impression on me that I now have eight of them! I think there's just one more to buy....
I don't think I seen the last 3, but there's simply too many films out there. Sometimes scary characters can leave taller impressions to audiences, I wonder if you did a survey at the time, how tall Doug would have been guessed...

@ Rob - I will willingly check this out by watching 'Hellraiser' as soon as possible, no problem!
I saw it at the pictures and hadn't ever seen anything quite so scary as to make me feel sick before!
I found it scarier when I was a teenager watching it...it was still a decent rewatch.

I'm SO glad that the 'Drama' Channel are repeating all the 'Silent Witness' episodes, right from the very beginning. I am seeing a completely different side to Clare, a totally professional and sympathetic side, instead of the terrifying part she played in the first two 'Hellraiser' films. As I remembered her to be 5ft4, I am using her as my measuring stick, but she does tend to wear heels a great deal of the time, because I know Amanda Burton is about the same height, possibly up to an inch less, and she's always looking up to Clare!
So impressed am I with Clare's acting that I am thinking of checking out her other films!
Clare can have a thoroughly professional 5ft4; she really is quite a lady, with a lovely speaking voice, and dark hair that swings prettily as she moves about!
I think Clare's resume claim of 5ft 6 was pushing it...she never seemed that tall in the 80's or 90's.

Clare is either as listed or slightly less!

As listed-maybe a fraction less.

Clare put so much atmosphere into 'Hellraiser' and the second one! I would have believed she was much taller than just 5ft4!
I saw her also in one of those TV series (possibly the first 'Silent Witness' with Amanda Burton), but that's all! The programmes mentioned above are all new and unseen by me!

Clare Higgins's height is 5ft 4in (163 cm)
163 sounds right.
