Rob would you consider her like " tallish " ?
Above average for sure, but maybe she is in that range upper average heading to low tall.

I see her quite tall. 5'7 is right for her.
said on 11/Feb/20
Hi Rob. Which is more likely for her, 5’6.25 or 5’6.5”? I personally think 5’6.5. She did look really tall in that Lilly Singh show.
I think 5ft 6.5

Listed as I expected. A bit below 5'7".

Looks more like a 5ft6 to me.

She has on large heels and is an inch taller then Jon Boyega with them on... hard for me to see her over 5’6”

Adorable 5'7 gal. I wish she will go to Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2020.

She looked 5’7” to me in TFA and TLJ. She was a little bit taller than Mark Hamill, even he has lost height and is probably somewhere around the range of 5’6” today. John Boyega and Oscar Isaacs also looked at max an inch taller than her. She also wasn’t that much shorter than Adam Driver. Daisy is definitely a tall girl and she gives off a tall impression in the movies, 5’7” for her.

Interesting to note that Star Wars Databank lists her character Rey's height as 1.7m, or just a bit under 5'7".
khaled taban said on 3/Sep/18
A little below 5'7"
MAD SAM said on 10/Aug/18
I would say easy 5’7” at 170 cm
Ryuu said on 4/May/18
@6footTom She does somehow look stocky, which is odd because she is very slim and has proportionally very long legs, which both usually make a person look taller. My friend theorized that it's because her head/neck/shoulders have a kind of scrunched look to them and that's where the eye is drawn.
Nik said on 24/Apr/18
Daisy Ridley is as listed!
haxxx said on 24/Apr/18
I think that 170 cm measurement was earlier in the day. Around afternoon I think she wouldnt measure over 5'6.75
Powerhouse said on 26/Feb/18
I’d say closer to a flat 5’6 not nearly 5’7.
6footTom said on 25/Feb/18
@Ryuu I think she just has a stocky build. From the Force Awakens, I honestly guessed her at 5'5".
Ryuu said on 15/Feb/18
Out of curiosity, what do we think it is about her proportions that makes her look so short on screen?

Still, she still has a body.
Most people do.
Mia said on 4/Feb/18
I say 5’6” in the night. She’s tall but not 5’7”. Still, she still has a body.
MAD SAM said on 31/Jan/18
She should be upgraded Rob this woman is a proper 5’7”
Revisionist said on 25/Jan/18
I doubt that Hamill actually stands the full 170cm these days. Ridley never looked the full 170cm to me but more of a strong 5'6," not quite 169.5 at night.
Marc said on 19/Jan/18
Watched the newest star wars movie and she never looked a full 5'7 to me. But no less than 5'6 either. Something in between so robs listening is perfect! Beautiful and very natural girl!
5'10 lad said on 6/Jan/18
I could see the downgrade coming. Boyega had a comfortable 2 inches on her
andre said on 2/Jan/18
Klapperschlangensindgeil21 said on 30/Dec/17
I think she is still a full 5’ 7.” Mark Hamill looked the same height as her, maybe only a fraction taller, and Mark Hammill could be 5’ 7 1/4.”
Bobby said on 25/Dec/17
@Cameron, really? In The Last Jedi she looked the same height as him, actually, looked taller with her footwear advantage. I would see John being 2 inches taller than her of course, but like always, he's claimed 5'9 which is really being quite honest, so even if Daisy herself says 5'7, neither would look bad for their claims because they're exactly two inches apart.
Cameron said on 24/Dec/17
@Bobby Mark Hamill definitely edged her out even with less footwear. I think this downgrade is justified. John Boyega also looks a solid 2" taller than her.
said on 23/Dec/17
Why the downgrade Rob? She looks perfectly 5'7 to me.
Editor Rob: from all I've seen now, I think she is just in that almost 5ft 7 zone.
Guest66 said on 23/Dec/17
Under 5'7" by a bit. Mark Hamill was taller than her.
Heightist said on 17/Dec/17
Saw her in Star Wars: The Last Jedi tonight. She's a dead ringer for Felicity Jones, who seems pretty petite. Ridley looked 5'3"-5'4" in The Last Jedi. But in pics next to other people, she looks kind of tall. She must have a build that makes her look shorter - in The Last Jedi, at least. I think she's 5'5"-5'6". She seems to have the same plastic surgeon who did Keira Knightly's nose.
Quoter86 said on 16/Dec/17
5'6.5". No more no less. Doesn't quite pull off 5'7.
Natalie said on 10/Dec/17
Stood next to Mark Hamill at TLJ premiere, I assume she had 4-5 inch heels and she was 1-2 inches taller than him, Mark had around 1 inch on his shoes? Since they are the same height then she should’ve been a lot taller than him in heels. She looks tall but I’m thinking she maybe be shorter than 5ft 7.
Jordan87 said on 5/Dec/17
" 5'8 " .
Bobby said on 30/Nov/17
Looks exactly as listed, when I saw The Force Awakens in theatres, she looked 5'8 to me, wouldn't be surprised if she measured over 5'7.
Jani said on 14/Oct/17
Yeah, I think that 170cm sharp is pretty accurate for her.
Allie said on 6/Oct/17
Funny, Swedish model Frida G whose 6'1 auditioned for the role of Rey and according to her, Disney was the one who called her agent. That would have been very funny looking at her and the shorter cast. But I though Daisy was like 5'4 haha. I guess she looks 5'6-7.
MisterManletMick said on 20/Sep/17
Rey is basically a Female Luke Skywalker so its not surprising that she happens to be the same height as him.
Cameron said on 31/Aug/17
Weak 5'7" maybe. Seemed to wear flat shoes on tfa.
Ted said on 10/Jul/17
Definitely not. Seen her in person. 5' 5'.5'' at best.
hal said on 31/Mar/17
5'7" sounds right. She might be a bit shorter. But I highly doubt she's shorter than 5'6".
Sarah said on 27/Dec/16
5'6.75 or 5'7.
Realist said on 12/Nov/16
She's around 169cms and 120 lbs.
Greg said on 7/Nov/16
Looks no more than 0.5" taller than Lupita N'yongo when in similar heels... she's clearly no more than 5'5"
josh jeffords said on 9/Oct/16
She looked tall in the Force Awakens but we already established all of the classic cast was short but two.
She did look short next to the odd new villain guy but he had like 6 inches of hair.
Wait till shes a star and shell say she 5 8 wont be the first time.
SS said on 26/Sep/16
It could be less , you should meet her ??
said on 8/Jul/16
Do you think she is nearer to 5'7.5 (1.71m) or more like 5'6.5 (1.69m)?
Editor Rob: I'd say more chance of 5ft 6.5 than 7.5...I think anywhere in 5ft 6.5-7 is arguable.
dee said on 4/May/16
Loads of people comparing her to john and oscar. did anyone consider both men wearing concealed shoe lifts? I mean it is actually quite common in hollywood. so until rob is able to stand beside her or either man in photo session it is gonna be hard to gauge her real height.
Lis said on 30/Apr/16
I agree with you Alex T., I always though she looked much more 5'6 than 57.
Alex T. said on 23/Apr/16
It seems to me that she is 5'6, does anybody think that her agency is exaggerating her height?
said on 21/Apr/16
Yes, she's clearly taller than ellen. But if daisy is 5'7, why is she that tall standing next to 5'7 Ellen?. Rob, she is 5'8-5'9 range
Editor Rob: without shoes and ellen in a basic sneaker, I really don't think there was much difference, but certainly Ellen herself with other guests generally can look under 5ft 7.
@2222wasabi said on 21/Apr/16
Ellen is like 5'7
Jay said on 19/Apr/16
Clearly with Jeb077's pic shows, she's taller than ellen barefoot, making her at least 5'7.
Wasabi 2187 said on 10/Apr/16
If she's 5'6.25, why is she almost the same height as 5'9 John, rob, she's 5'7.5 or even 5'8-5'9.
Josh said on 9/Apr/16
She's probably around 5'6-5'6.25
said on 27/Mar/16
If you've established Ellen as 5'7" Daisy is at least 5'7.5" maybe 5'8"
They stood next to each other on her show and were identical. Except Daisy was barefoot and Ellen in basic 1" high sneakers. Look for the video on youtube or see pic below
Editor Rob: ellen at 5ft 6.5, her sneakers I don't know what they are though.
Eric said on 24/Mar/16
Her agency is exaggerating I think. She doesn't look the same height as a true 5'7 like Tom cruise. She looks like 5'4.
said on 21/Jan/16
Rob you have her listed at 5'7 and you have Oscar Isaac listed at 5'7.5 but Daisy and Oscar look the same height when she's wearing 3 inch heals. Either Oscar is really closer to 5'8.25, or Daisy is way shorter than you have her here. I'm gonna go with the former.
Editor Rob: from what I've seen, in heels she looks taller.
But 169cm for her is not impossible.
Hong Kong said on 3/Jan/16
If she's 5'7 she's the shortest 5'7 I've ever seen. On Star Wars she looked about 5'3-5'4 when standing alone and not next to anyone else. Might just be legs / overall proportions that belies her height. Doesn't matter what height she is though, she's still so so pretty! =)
said on 30/Dec/15
Here she is on the ellen show stabding wearing flats next to 5'6-5'7 ellen and Oscar around 5'8 and John around 5'9 Click Here
said on 30/Dec/15
She's considerably shorter than that. Standing in heels next to Lupita, same model shoes and they seen the same height, and even in heels she doesn't seem taller than John who's 5'8. My guess is she's 5'5: Click Here Click Here
wilder said on 29/Dec/15
im with @calvin on this one. i never post on sites like these but i thought this was necessary. i saw her at urth caffe in beverly hills few weeks ago and she was 5'9 tall. i am 5'8.5-5'9 in shoes and she was taller than me.
Emma said on 28/Dec/15
I thought she looked about 1.60 in the movie. Also in the premiere photographs, she is the same height as John Boyega and Oscar Isaac with at least 5-6 inches heels. Based on your video about how heels work, counting her next to John at 1.75 (or 5.8) and then removing the four inches she would get by her heels, we go to 5,4 ot even 5.5...
Bob said on 22/Dec/15
Is the same height, perhaps an inch taller than, Lupita N'yongo in all Star Wars promotional events. 'Lupita' is listed at 5'3.5" here. Methinks her agency is exaggerating a fair bit. She also seems fairly petite in the long shots in the film itself too. She is probably 5'4.5"
Logan Hedlund said on 21/Dec/15
Miss Ridley stands solid 170cm. I saw SW VII (excellent performance) and comparing to mr. Ford and and mr. Boyega, she's no less than 5ft 7in as Rob posted.
Calvin said on 19/Dec/15
This is one of the biggest lies on this site. 5-7 is crazy low for Daisy and I'm not just a fan saying this. She works out at the same gym as me and I see her there every day (putting in work for her body). She has some crazy long legs and in her workout tights looks super tall, this is supported by standing next to her, where she honestly makes me look foolish. I've never spoken to her but I've stood behind her in the smoothie line and she was considerably taller than my 5-5 self, 5-9 at the lowest is my guess. She talked to the woman standing behind me in the line (also very tall) and they spoke clear over my head, I wasn't even a disruption.
John said on 17/Dec/15
Your one of the pretiest girls i Ever seen
Unknown said on 17/Dec/15
I don't believe she's quite that tall. There are many pictures of her standing next to John Boyega and Oscar Isaac. She is wearing high heels that make her at least 3 inches taller and yet she looks the same height as Isaac (who is around 5'8'' and wearing maybe 1 inch shoes). So I would say she is not more than 5'6''. You can see the photos on John Boyega's height page.
Sean73 said on 26/Nov/15
I can't wait for The Force Awakens! She does look a solid 5'7" to me. If a Martina Hingis biopic were to be made, Daisey could play her for sure. Plus there both the same height.
