Looked 6'0.75 throughout Band of Brothers.
Daniel said on 3/Apr/20
In an episode of Billions he appears side by side with James Hettfield from the band Metallica, and looks noticeable shorter, about 5 centimeters.

6'2 1/2 Idris Elba makes him look 6'0-6'0 1/4.

I reckon he’s wearing 32inseam in this one Click Here unlike the photo above.
Importer said on 7/Jul/19
6ft 3/4inch.
TheBat said on 5/Nov/18
I think Damian's 6'1" listing would be more possible during the morning.
abcde said on 7/Jul/18
BT: assume that Hetfield could be wearing stronger footwear than Damian Lewis then James looks 186cm and Damian looks like strong 184 cm, so everything is correct :)
berta said on 12/May/18
ths guy is one of the few who really should get a 6 foot 5/8 listing. coulde be 3/4 also it is somewhere in that area. the full 6 foot 1 is a fraction to mutch.
Jamie said on 15/Apr/18
He had a good inch advantage of Dave Grohl and edged Pat Smeer at the Brit Awards 2018. At least 1/4 inch is a necessary upgrade.
Paleman said on 9/Apr/18
I'm not seeing this guy at only 184 centimeters... 6'0.75" is probably closer to the truth. Often manages to look like a good 6'1" guy, he has very long legs.
Johnnyboy said on 5/Apr/18
Looked almost a head taller than anyone else in band of bros would have thought 190, but 185 seems legit if the privates are all short(ish)
JJAK said on 9/Jan/18
Tall guy very good actor super weird build has torso of a small man arms also but long legs.
Gives a strong 6 foot impression in all ive seen him often with above avs or even tall folk.
Dont see a full 6 1 but that is always tough to tell think listing is good.
eric said on 23/Dec/17
looks closer to 6 feet flat
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/17
That's an interesing photo. Looks taller than Mark Strong and Ben Cohen!

I think a weak 6ft1 is reasonable
berta said on 23/Jul/17
i dont think he is 185 but if we hade 1/8 listing is think we would have had him 1/8 higher listing than thiws. i beliveve he is about 184,6 someting like that.
sfs325 said on 23/May/17
Rob, Thoughts on this? Ben Cohen is listed at 6'2 most places?

Click Here
Editor Rob: tricky to tell if Ben is standing worse than Damian...but he is 6ft 2 in person, though claimed 6ft 3 in fact!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Apr/17
Rob, who do you think would measure taller Lewis or Cavill?
Editor Rob: in the past I've thought Lewis had more chance of being 185 range than Cavill, though...I don't know, they may well be closer than I think..
Rory said on 30/Apr/17
I think a solid 184cm is spot on for Damian Lewis. There are times he does look a solid 6ft 1 but there's other times like stood with James Purefoy,Dominic West,Johnny lee Miller etc where he doesn't really look over 6ft range. I'd be very surprised if he measured somewhere outside that 6'0.25 to 6'0.75 area at his low so 6'0.5 seems perfect.
berta said on 30/Mar/17
i think either this listing ore a fraction taller.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Mar/17
Not under this and I'd argue a fraction more. Can look 6ft1
Importer said on 22/Jan/17
Mention Billions in the description, he nailed it on that series I really enjoyed every episode of that.

Rory said on 7/Jun/16
I don't think D.Lewis is 185cm, with guys like Giamatti,Elba,Prince William and Tom Hiddlestone, could look 183-4.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/16
Evans might be 186cm
joe joe said on 5/Jun/16
Although not sure if you saw it Rob. It did look like he gave an inch away to Chris Evans listed 185 in the last episode of top gear

Click Here
Editor Rob: not yet watched it, but Evans I think is nearer 6ft 1 than 2 from all I've seen now of him.
joe joe said on 5/Jun/16
I'm pretty sure he is a full 1m 85
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/16
184-185cm zone, like Jon Hamm and Henry Cavill
Lord Beerus said on 22/May/16
Why does he look 3 inches taller than Jimmy Fallon? Strange...:/
BT said on 29/Apr/16
@Mike: Only pic I could find doing a quick search: Click Here Not the best, but Damian seems to look up a bit, James could be wearing stronger footwear maybe?
mike said on 25/Feb/16
Billions episode 4 beside james hetfield. 5'11 1/2 to 6 feet. I cant pull the clip but its telling
lil steve said on 13/Dec/15
I ran into this man at the airport in Los An. Only got to speak to him for a few moments at LAX but he is at least 6'1" pretty tall guy. a little above average. good lookin guy too, he looks good kinda like some sort of pretty boy. surprisingly good looking redhead man. I've heard he's an award winning actor too which is cool.. I've met Brad Pitt before as well and he's actually listed higher than in real life in my opinion. Brad Pitt is 5 feet 9 inches tall which neat because I always thought he was super tall, but nah he's an average sized man, which is cool.
Matt said on 26/Oct/15
I just met him an hour ago. They were filming a new show on my block 'billions'
I took a pic with him and Malin Akerman. They are both really tall. Damian is 6'1. He isn't cheating on that. He was a lot taller than I expected. Malin is a good 5 ft 8. Maybe even 5 ft 9. But I couldn't see her shoes
Dmeyer said on 10/Oct/15
Solid 2cm under 185cm David schwimmer so no taller than 184cm
JJF said on 16/Jun/15
Solid 6'0.5"
Never looks shorter than 6'1.5" (or 6'2" some claim) Rhys Ifans in any of their pics together.
Bishop said on 11/Apr/15
6'0.75". He can look the full 6'1" at times.
Nikolai said on 17/Feb/15
I was on set of homeland with him. Ate with him on break I'm 6'0 and he is slightly taller than me.
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 24/Oct/14
Another for the 6ft 0.75in category, Rob?
bran said on 23/Oct/14

cole said on 27/Jun/14
@Editor Rob: Maybe it's ok giving him 6ft 0.75in?
Hypado said on 27/Jun/14
6ft 0.5in (184 cm) for Damian
Nick B 1993 said on 3/Jun/14
He needs an upgrade. He's 6'1"!
185-6 said on 2/Mar/14
Hi Rob, he might be 185 cm, look at him with Jimmy Fallon on youtube.
Natasha said on 6/Feb/14
Looks like a solid 6'1" to me.
Isabelle said on 21/Jan/14
He's tall I'd say solid 6'1"
cole said on 11/Jun/13
This is what a 6'0.5" man looks like, I'm sorry but that's just not Cooper and Gosling. Could even buy 6'1 for Damian.
Pedro said on 18/May/13
In his agency, he is listed at 6'1": Click Here
SantaMonica said on 29/Apr/13
Saw him and spoke to him in a museum in Florence, Italy, in 2009. He's at least 6', maybe a bit taller. He was with his wife. They were both very nice and seemed pleased to be recognized (he was not so well known at the time.)
Denny said on 17/Mar/13
Seems legit, I walked past him near London Bridge station, he must have been a couple of inches taller than me (I'm 5'10").
Hew said on 14/Jan/13

Solid 6ft.
joe joe said on 31/Oct/12
ps i think robbie has a slight heel in the below photo, i feel he has more of an arch in his feet than damien even though we can only see em slighty
joe joe said on 31/Oct/12
i've met damien a few times. he attends my members club in east london. i would peg him at strong 6ft im 185 and have never felt much of a difference between us
Silent d said on 28/Oct/12
Robbie williams is barely 5 foot 5. That was a joke right? damian is a solid 184cm.
jtm said on 19/Aug/12
yeah this is accurate.
BigT said on 25/Jul/12
This listing is solid, tall guy.
Silent d said on 23/Jan/12
He looked huge on life next to 160cm sarah shahi. 184cm easy. He is deceptively tall. In dream catcher he looked 184cm next to his costars who are at least 6 foot.
jake, 1.82 m/ 1.83 m said on 17/Jan/12
Neal McDonough could be 1.82 m...close to 6" 0 at any rate. As for Damian Lewis- he's 184 cm solid.
LAN Jiao said on 18/Oct/11
in bands of brothers Neal McDonough looks 5'11 and Damien look 6'0
Aaron said on 28/Sep/11
Seems a half inch taller than 6'0" Neal McDonough (Lt. Buck Compton) in BoB. Figure they were wearing the same boots.
Greg said on 8/Aug/11
At least 182-183 cm barefoot for sure, 185-186 cm in the dress shoes he's wearing in Life. Looks heavily built too, maybe 180 lbs ++. Bumped into him last year, he appeared closer to 190 cm, but it was in the winter, and he was wearing crazy big boots, probably with something inside.
JB said on 8/Jun/11
The only TV show I've ever seen Damian Lewis in is Life. He was by far the tallest cast member with the exception of 6' 1 1/2" Adam Arkin and towered over 5' 10" Donal Logue. He appears heavily built, probably about 185-190 lb, and he's a believable 6' 1" to me. He's probably 6' 1/2" minimum height in the evening and 6' 1" mid-morning up to 3-4 hours after waking up.
gregarious ginger said on 21/Feb/11
Perfect height for him. Wasn't Jason Lee a tiny bit taller than he was in Dreamcatcher? Lewis is 6.05 for sure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Dec/10
6ft 1in on the dot
ace said on 22/Mar/09
He and schwimmer were pretty close in height: Click Here
I was just watching a few episodes of band of brothers and life, and its interesting. He usually does look around 6`1.
anonymous said on 9/Mar/09
On life, he is 25cm taller than 160cm sarah shahi. 6 foot 1.
keegan said on 2/Feb/09
increase this guys height please , he has an inch or so over schwimmer in BoB
6 ft 1.5 in , wud be more accurate
Anonymous said on 30/Jul/08
God you've got this so wrong. He was easily an inch taller than 6'1'' David Schwimmer in Band of Brothers.
gfunkmoney06 said on 16/Jul/08
I saw the guy on campus at UCLA. He was shooting a TV show here. I'm about 5'11.5" and he seemed to be at least an inch taller than me. He's a legit 6'1" at the minimum.
anonymous said on 2/Apr/08
Gonzalo, he was shorter than schwimmer by an inch on band of brothers.
Anonymous said on 27/Mar/08
On the episode of Life where Crews/Damian Lewis talks about height...
he says to his ex-wife (about her current husband), "he's very tall. I didn't know you liked tall men. Maybe if I knew, I could've been taller."

Damian Lewis is on the short end of tall if that makes sense. He's a little above average, but not "very tall". Just tall. 6'0", but probably not 6'1".
me!!! said on 4/Dec/07
On Monday's Life he Charlie Crews said that he's not tall which is surprising since Damian look at least 6'1".
lazzara said on 5/Aug/07
I agree with Blokjekaas, I met D.Lewis about three weeks ago, I'm 183 and he was like 186 or so, so I'd say hes 6'1". A very nice guy ^^
patty said on 14/Jun/06
in BOB he was much taller than livingston
Chris said on 18/Apr/06
Well I was wrong, could be the angles.
Click Here
Chris said on 18/Apr/06
In Band of Brothers he looked 1'½'' inch taller then David Schwimmer
Blokjekaas said on 26/Dec/05
yeah he is about 183 184 cm, i am 180 and i met him, and on the photo he is a bit taller then me
Lizzy said on 27/Nov/05
alot of the actors in Dreamcatcher were quite tall though...
T said on 18/Oct/05
Looks 6'1" compared to Livingston in BoB.
