Dabney Coleman's Height

6ft 0 (182.9 cm)

American Actor best known for films such as 9 to 5, On Golden Pond, Tootsie, WarGames, You've Got Mail, Inspector Gadget and The Beverly Hillbillies. On TV he appeared in The Slap Maxwell Story, The Guardian and Boardwalk Empire. Dabney said in 1990 "It's funny how this business works; I was a skinny, 6-foot actor who looked like a thousand other actors. Then I lost some hair, gained some weight". Another article from 1982 mentioned that age 17 he was a measly 119 pounds and 5ft 4...and nowadays was a sturdy six footer.

Two instances of late growth spurt Gigantism. Adam Rainer at 21 grew from 3’10” to 7’1”. He finished at 7’8” before becoming bedridden. He wore a size 10 men’s shoe when he was 4’10”. Terrence Keenan of the UK grew to 7’6”. His abnormal growth began at age 17 when just 5’4”.

Dabney’s griwth spurt when he was 17 reminds me of a young footballer here in the UK called Scott McTominay. His growth was even more dramatic...he went from 5’6 to 6’4 in a year from 17 to 18! Unfortunately this led to all sorts of ligament and muscle injuries during this time. But now in his very early 20s, he’s settled down, injuries gone and he’s a good athlete and an important member of the Manchester United squad.
As for Dabney...a strong 6ft I’d say

I've just read that Dabney was just 5ft4 and eight-and-a-half stone at 17, yet he grew to 6ft! How amazing to shoot up at such a comparatively late age!

This has taken presidence over anything else I was going to say!

.... other than that he can have 6ft precisely from me!

Could pass for 6ft1. I think a strong 6ft is possible

Rob, possible 6ft 0.5in?
Editor Rob: I suppose you could argue that figure
Sam said on 26/May/15
Yeah, I don't question him as a strong six footer, at times even in Boardwalk Empire he could still look a pretty solid heighted guy.

He looked like a solid 6ft 0in guy in 'On Golden Pond'.

Rob can you add a photo and films like On Golden Pond, Tootsie, WarGames, You've Got Mail, Inspector Gadget and The Beverly Hillbillies and TV series like The Slap Maxwell Story, The Guardian and Boardwalk Empire.

Yeah I think 6 ft is about right, possibly a whisker over it. Sterling Hayden had him by between 4 and 5 inches in 9 to 5, although rather than him being 6'1", but I think Hayden had lost a bit by 1980 and was more 6 ft 4 range by that time.
Jake: 1.82 m-- 1.83 m-- 1.84 m said on 1/Sep/12
6ft 0.5 (1.84 m) is a possibility though as he could seem over 6ft.
