How tall is Colton Haynes

Colton Haynes Height

5ft 8 ½ (174 cm)

American actor best known for roles in TV series Arrow (as Roy Harper) and Teen Wolf (as Jackson Whittemore). He says he is "Five Nine...kind of short" and has also joked about his height on twitter saying "I'm actually 6'5, camera takes 10in" and also "I'm 5'10". In a 2022 Advocate article he said "I posted this video of me in the hospital. I'm 5'9", 5'10" and I gained almost 70 pounds, 65 pounds. And it's very apparent."

I lied to get my first modeling agent. When I was 14, I said I was 6 feet tall, when I was 5-7. They flew me to New York, and knew I was wearing lifts in the back of my shoes.

Saw in People article this snippet:
"One thing hasn't changed about Haynes either — he shows me the lifts in the shoes he's wearing and quips, "Today I'm six-foot-two.""

Colton plays one of Kai Anderson’s shorter Cult members in American Horror Story Season Seven, understandably named ‘Cult’!

He’s not the smallest of his followers but next to Cheyenne Jackson, most guys would look kind of short….

The Cult has many members who are humiliatingly tall, and could possibly be picked for that reason.

Average guess is too low. Looks 5'8 range in the pic above.
Elene said on 4/Sep/21
Why is average guess so low?he doesn’t look that short.
Leaf said on 5/Mar/21
i think hes around 6' because in the show teen wolf he seems like hes around the same height as the other actors. the tallest actor is 6'1 and the shortest male actor is arount 5'5 so 6' seems right cause hes on the taller side. im going to guess 5'10 1/2 thought because thats the tallest theyll let me guess
slim 6'1 said on 29/Jan/21
I would put him at 172.5 like Joaquin Phoenix

Overlisted, 172cm
Editor Rob
Check him out with Willa here, and emily - that is not a guy under 5ft 8.
FiveEightJake said on 1/Sep/20
I don’t understand what’s with the downgrading on this page? He’s clearly taller than loads of people who are listed as 5’8 and he holds up well next to most people. Listing seems spot on.
Slim 6'1" said on 7/Aug/20
cool dude, jealous haters will downgrade to 171
JohnMoore-162cm said on 10/Apr/20
"Five Nine...kind of short" - claiming 5ft9 whilst you are 5ft8 is kinda absurd as well !

Andrea said on 27/Mar/18
LOL, 5'9??? I suggest you to remeasure yourself, chr88. The question is: is he even as tall as his current listing? He looks barely 5'8 next to 6'4 range Boris Kodjoe here: Click Here Click Here


Thats not the first time Andrea, next to Paul Wesley who Rob met and verified as 5'10"

That guy below saying he is 5'9" ...he looks 2.5" shorter than a legit 5'10", maybe instead of attacking Rob go measure yourself haha.

Sorry Rob I was too busy laughing and put 3.5".

No way 5'9", this guy is lucky if he measure even 5'8"

5'9" is not kinda short!
Buser said on 22/Oct/18
@Editor: can he be under 5'8?
Editor Rob
On arrow, he never looked less than 173 range, and that's without realising he didn't have as thick footwear as others like Amell had.

He isn't super short looks 5ft 8
Easy Peasy said on 13/Jul/18
no chance he's over 5'7, he looks super short on arrow
Mark bryan said on 31/May/18
He's a great actor love him especially In Arrow but he looks like a solid 5 ft 7 or 5 ft 8. His partner is apparently 6 ft 1 (185 cm) and it looks like they have a 12 cm height difference

Didn't he admit to being 5'6? He looks so short on Arrow,lots of actors tower him and are listed in the 6'0 range.
Peter175 said on 10/Sep/17
Why are the guesses for him so low?

I thought he was at least 172 in arrow. I doubt he's above 5'8 though
Slim 181 cm said on 8/Jul/17
Update: shave of the quarter inch, definitely unnecessary.
Editor Rob
on Arrow he sometimes wore a 0.7 style sneaker, while Amell had boots, I think half the time he was at a footwear disadvantage.
Slim 5'11.5 said on 5/Jul/17
A very hard shell to crack, seen all his arrow scenes and watching teen wolf now, I will check into this page to post my opinion updates . 173 is plausible at the moment.
Slim 181 cm said on 25/Jun/17
😂 flat 5'8 is closer to the truth.
Average height and slim said on 22/May/17
171- 172 cm(5"7.5) anything higher is just overly optimistic.
Christian-196.8cm (6ft5.5)Noon said on 16/Apr/17
I could be wrong, but he probably admitted he was 5'7" by joking that "I'm actually 6'5, camera takes 10in", because 6'5" - 10" = 5'7"
Balrog said on 15/Apr/17
Unless he is a chronic lift wearer, I can't see him under 5'8". He looks in the 5'8" range most of the time. I do suspect he gets a boost at times, so if we confirm he's a lift wearer or use elevatoe shoes, he could be under 5'8"
SAK said on 14/Mar/17
The classic, 5'8 guy claiming to be 5'10.

He started out as a model, so I wonder what his agency listed his height as.
5'8 is about 3" off the minimum of 5'11 usually required for modelling. But there are always exceptions, so we'll done to him.
Jackson said on 10/Mar/17

How could he model with being that short?
Sammy Derrick said on 28/Apr/16
I was never good at Math back in High School,but based on this statement:"I'm actually 6'5, camera takes 10in" and also "I'm 5'10" ,if you take away 10inches from 6'5 you get 5'7...
Click Here From-0:20-0:35=He hints that he was 5'7 to 5'8 at 14,it's possible that he stopped growing(I personally stopped growing at 15)
Luckily for him his strong jawline,high cheekbones and piercing blue eyes give the illusion that he is taller.
It's ironic that he said that he was 5'11 and the character Roy Harper(Arsenal) is actually 5'11 in the comic books.
@Editor Rob Is it possible for him to be in the strong 5'7 range?
Editor Rob
just can't see him that low.

Ed2882 said on 27/Apr/15
I'm happy to see Colton downgraded. I really hope you stand next to him one day Rob. He just looks so tiny on Arrow; even the women stand taller than him. In my mind I can't help but think he's 171cm, but 173cm works for now.
Editor Rob
unfortunately the convention he is at, I can't go as it clashes with another I'm going to!

Editor Rob
I've not seen enough to think he was as low as 5ft 7, but remember you could easily be 5ft 8 and be an inch under a 6ft 1 guy's eyes.

In fact, a guy in my height challenge Guy in my height challenge is 6ft 1.25 and I'm 5ft 8 1/8th, yet I'm an inch under his eyes in photos.
Wagner said on 23/Apr/15
Rob, why are you so resistant to go with 5'6"~5'7" listings? In the show he meantions in a conversation with Tea Queen that "what lacks me in height I have in skill" or something like that.
He is for sure, shorter than you
Editor Rob
I don't think 5ft 6-7 is realistic.

Come on Rob, I know that you know there is more than a 2cm difference there! Lol. Rob please downgrade Joe, keeping him in the 5'7'' range is quite harsh to guys who are actually 5'7''.
Ron said on 9/Apr/15
It seems the majority here are thinking 5'7.5 but Rob is reluctant to downgrade that far. That's fine, it's only an inch argued about at most. It annoys me that he claims 5'9 if he's that much less, though, as it sort of makes people think of 5'9 as a lot shorter. 5'9 I think is a hugely underestimated height these days: my brother is 5'9 and when he stands next to 5'11 me people dont believe it, they all say things like "but you're tall!". Ironically when I tell people I'm 5'11 9/10 times I get a disapproving look and something like "in your dreams mate". It's the effect of so many people trying to claim they're taller than they are, and people thin thinking they're an expert on height judging. What I'm saying is, Haynes looks 7.5 to me, but in claiming 9 he's contributing to a delusion that related heights are short. Compare him to a real 5'9, say. Paul McGann (who may even be 8) - there's mo question McGann looks taller, sure they're not often stood together but compare Haynes and Amell and McGann and Elba - in the former Amell towers, in the latter Elba just looks "taller". I'm trying to see above 7.5 hot Haynes but really... I'm finding it difficult.

By the way Rob were you at Birmingham Comic Con, UK a couple of weeks back? I was there on the Saturfay in full Batman Dark Knight armour (actual armour, not a fabric costume) and at about 3pmish I could have sworn I saw you in a que near the cosplay corner. Just wondering!
Editor Rob
yes I am now back attending Expo's and was standing around that area!
MD said on 9/Apr/15
Gonna suck when they tell you that he was shorter than you, then, huh? ;) You'd tell us if they told you that, wouldn't you? :)
Editor Rob
well they should know whether he is my height or like a 5ft 7 range person, hopefully....
MD said on 8/Apr/15
Wait, were you going to tell us when your friends met him?
Editor Rob
they haven't, but I think I've seen enough to go with 5ft 8. If they say he looks taller than me, maybe he'll go back up ;)
Damon said on 7/Apr/15
So you downgraded him to 5'8" because you have been convinced of it or because your friends met him and listed Colton as 5'8"?

My guess is 5ft7.5
Editor Rob
there's enough evidence to say he is in the 5ft 8 range, I've not seen enough to say he is under that though.
Morgan said on 6/Apr/15
hey rob take a look at this video
Click Here

So, we know that the maximum height Amell might have is 6ft1
And Colton looks at most a 5ft7.5 next to him in this video
Zarth said on 1/Apr/15
he should be downgraded to 5'7"
a 5'9 almost would never look two heads shorter than amell
Editor Rob
5ft 7 might be a bit much, but yes 5ft 8 flat is probably a bit closer.
MD said on 1/Apr/15
Rob, meet who? Colton Haynes?

president snow said on 29/Mar/15
this guy is definetely 5'7"~5'8", there is no chance a 5'9"-5'10" guy would look that short in arrow. NO CHANCE
he is short. and what is short? below 5'8, and I would definetely go with 5'7" on the dot
184.3cm said on 20/Mar/15
Claiming 5'9 maybe would have been 'worthless' but claiming to be 3+ inches taller is stupid. No wonder they were angry. He looks shorter next to Paul Wesley than Rob did went he met him. With Rob there was a 2 inch difference with Colton it looked 2.5 i agree with poster Josh that he is more likely 5'7.5-5'8. That is why he feels "kind of short" .
Editor Rob
I'm sure he mentioned 5ft 10 on twitter recently, but I'm not sure if the context of saying it was more a joke...
NangaParbat said on 16/Mar/15
Rob, guys, check out the last pic in Colton instagram with Serena Williams (here listed as 5'9) I think it is the prove Colton is around 5'7: they are side by side, she is in tennis clothes so she's not supposed to wear heels, and she is on bent knees..take a look and write what you think! Ciao from Italy!!! :)
Ron said on 8/Mar/15
I've really tried to see him as 5'8-9 now as I'm catching up on Arrow, but try as I might I just can't make it fit. He frequently appears to be of shorter stature to the other male cast members, and if he were a 5'9 solid you wouldn't really notice it so much. It'd be there, but compared to a guy like Barrowman or Amell he wouldn't look so much smaller.
I mean, say Manu Bennett is the 5'10 he claims, or the 9 some people argue for, Haynes doesn't measure up to Bennett at all, whereas you don't really notice Bennett's height because he's tall enough to fit in with the taller cast and stocky enough not to tower the shorter ones, Haynes still appears far smaller than him. Can't see him above 5'8, probably closer to 7.
Not knocking it though! There seems to be a vocal bunch saying the Haynes downgrades are just jealous of him - why? Height can't be controlled, and there are benefits and disadvantages to all heights, it worries me that so many people seem to judge people based on it, to be honest, you might as well judge someone based on the number of hairs under their left armpit with the same logic. He's who he is, and he's got a fantastic career, well-worked body and well-kemt appearance - height doesn't matter a jot compared to that!
Josh said on 5/Mar/15
Maybe at the most 5'8. Next to Amell and Ramsey on Arrow he looks 5'7.5-5-8. On teen wolf he was shorter than Tyler Posey who looks his listed 5'9.5 by at least 1.5-2 inches.
MD said on 3/Mar/15
He was trying to get into modeling. If you're going to lie in that industry, you'd lie big. Claiming to have been 5'9" would have been worthless.
184.3cm said on 2/Mar/15
What is puzzling is why didnt he just claim 5'9 or is 5'11 the minimum for a male model?
MD said on 2/Mar/15
I was only asking you to add the quote, is all, since I know how loathe you can be to correct a height due to a quote. I think it's an important piece of self-admission, though, and worthy of being in the description. It's rare you hear to someone admit to such a thing. The only debate is what age he was talking about. I think we'll eventually see, that he's below what he's currently listed, though.
Editor Rob
I think in the video it's clear he's talking about his younger years: "I got my start in modelling when I was 14....I actually lied about my height and said I was like Five Eleven and I think I was Five Seven or Five Eight or something....and they [DNA] flew me to New York and they weren't very happy, they made me stuff socks in the back of my shoes..."

Unfortunately I won't be able to meet the guy as he's at one con that I can't go to, but I have friends who will see him and will ask what they think he is up close. said on 1/Mar/15
so he basically admitted that he is 5'7
Editor Rob
it's in the video, I think it's clear he's talking about when he was 14-15 and starting in modelling and lied.
MD said on 28/Feb/15

Can you add that video as a link in the header?

It seems to me we finally caught him telling his real height, though, he hedges enough that there can still be debate about it.
Editor Rob
he did seem to start young, he could have been saying 5ft 11 when age 15-16 range, I'm not sure what age he is talking about.
MD said on 25/Feb/15
This will probably get a lot of hits, here, and there will be a debate over how far back he's talking about the lie, but he said he lied about his height for modeling saying he claimed 5'11" when he was 5'7" of 5'8"

Click Here

I'm still of the mind that he's currently a bit overlisted, now, so I'd take it that his height is the same as it was then.

ItalianArrow said on 22/Jun/14
I don't think he is 5'8" ! In lot of pics he looks a flat 5'7"; he is a liftwearear for sure, but in arrow and in some pics he is a clearly 5'7''; @Rob dont you think he needs a downgrade?
Editor Rob
I'd be very surprised if he was only 5ft 7 as I think he generally can look in the 5ft 8 range

The angle is not preferable, but that's still more than a two inch difference. I'd argue that a flat 5'8" is a much more appropriate starting listed height for this guy.

He looks about 5'6 there thanks to his short legs.
Vecrotus said on 9/Apr/14
I've always felt he was closer to 5ft 7in than 5ft 8.5in. Manu Bennett stands about 5ft 10in and he has a clear 3 to 4 inches on Haynes.

Chris says: I feel pretty bad for him. A gigantic head on his short body looks pretty ugly.
He does have a slightly big head for his body, but nothing that can't be fixed by adding some extra weight.

Narrow face? Not really. I feel pretty bad for him. A gigantic head on his short body looks pretty ugly. Although a big head genereally is unpleasing for the eye
Balrog said on 3/Apr/14
Perfect listing and yeah this guy can look 5'10" so must be a lift wearer, and looking at the pic I'd say he also likes wearing clown shoes.
NangaParbat said on 3/Apr/14
@MD Look the second shot with JC Chasez you have posted: Colton is next to Shawn Pyfrom who is listed as 5'7'' and he is even on his toes..So he is really a multiform guy definitely.
MD said on 3/Apr/14
He can look taller in shots from the waist up in solo shots because of a long torso and narrow face, but he has pretty proportionally short legs.

A 5'8.5" listing may be pushing it, a bit. And, he's definitely an occasional lift-wearer from what I can judge, because there are also times when he looks as tall as the other 5'10"ish guys in the cast.
NangaParbat said on 2/Apr/14
Closer to 5'8'' than 5'9''; this guy is a great liftwearer, and there are some pics in which he looks even 5'7''..very hard to say ;))
