How tall is Daniel Gillies

Daniel Gillies Height

5ft 9 ¾ (177.2 cm)

Canadian-born New Zealand actor best known for playing Elijah on the TV series The Vampire Diaries (and The Originals) and Dr. Joel Goran on Saving Hope. In this photo I was in near 1 inch Nike's, Daniel in These boots which looked to give him a fraction more than mine. On his New Zealand agency he was listed [sic] "5'10 / 180cm".

I keep seeing Dan's picture but I had no idea he was in 'The Vampire Diaries'! He looks tall enough to be the listed 5ft9.75, or upwards of that, so he will get 5ft10.

@khan 177cm evening I think they should just say 6’4 and round it down to 6’0 for safe measures. That way you won’t be called out so a bit under 5’11.

@Christian 6'5 3/8"

I am looking at some of these comments bickering over what counts as what range - what is the point? People are the height they are. If you are 5'10.25" and don't want to say 5'10", just say a "a bit over 5'10" and no one will think you are weird. If you are 5'10.392938484, "5'10 and a half". 5'10.666234214, "a bit under 5'11".

I get this is a height site, but people really should take a step back and see how silly it is to argue over things like 5'9.75" not being 5'9.5 range and 5'10 and 3/8ths being 5'10.5 range.

Gets edged out by 5’9.75” listed Paul Wesley more 5’9 3/8ths-5’9.5ish
Editor Rob
Well I've always given Paul 5ft 10. I feel at times all 3 (ian/daniel/paul) can seem near enough same range in photos, but seeing them in person, I would say there was small difference between them, with Paul possibly edging Daniel, who edges out Ian.

He’s above average!

Can you tell us Johnny Edlind Height please???
Editor Rob
I am not sure, but he looks roughly average
Canson said on 11/Oct/19
@Christian: maybe if that’s the case something like 2/3” over the mark to 1/3”. I consider 2/3” a bit weak and more half but most would disagree. 3/4” is where the real inch starts
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Oct/19
@Canson
I didn't include 5'9 5/8" or 5'10 3/8" in the 5'10" range, because I feel that an 8th is too small of a value, so it doesn't take much for someone to measure 1/8" higher or lower than their low. I think it's unfair to classify someone as 5'10" range, just because one day they happen to measure 5'10 3/8" rather than their usual 5'10.5", which is right in the middle between 5'10" and 5'11". I'd call 5'9 5/8" as 5'9.5" range and 5'10 3/8" as 5'10.5" range.
Canson said on 10/Oct/19
@Bobby: I have to agree with Christian. 5’10 3/8 would be 5’10” as well. If we say half and over then it would have to be at a low and be 5’9.5-5’10.5 to be fair and unbiased
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 10/Oct/19
@Bobby
Society wise, that makes sense because people tend to overestimate height than underestimate, but mathematically, both 5'9.5" and 5'10.5" are equally apart from 5'10".
TheBat said on 9/Oct/19
Good listing. Can pass of for 5'10" flat.

@Johan 185cm

Well, I classify 5'10 range as being 5'9.5 to 5'10.25. 5'10.5 to 5'11.25 is more 5'11 range.

--------

For me a weak 5'10" would be 5'9.75" so i would put that as 5'10" range up to 5'10.5".

5'10.75"-5'11.5" as 5'11" range.
Bobby 1.78m said on 7/Oct/19
@Chrisrian

Well, at 5'9.5, you could be guessed and perceived at 5'10. Same with being 5'10.5 and being guessed and perceived at 5'11. Which is why I said what I said.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 7/Oct/19
@Bobby
Why isn't 5'10.5" included in the 5'10" range, yet 5'9.5" is? Both are equally apart from 5'10". Personally, I'd classify 5'10" range as anywhere between 5'9.75"-5'10.25"
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 5/Oct/19
@Johan 185cm

Well, I classify 5'10 range as being 5'9.5 to 5'10.25. 5'10.5 to 5'11.25 is more 5'11 range.

@ Johan 185 cm - F-U-N-N-Y!

Well, Rob is a height cop!
Editor Rob
A cop thinks he's always right...I'm only right 99% of the time πŸ€”

But seriously, I think more of myself as a Height Entertainer.

As for Daniel, I think you could argue anywhere from 5ft 9.5 up to 10 for him. In person I did not see him look a strong 5ft 10 range, enough to then give him 5ft 10.

@Johan 185cm

To be fair, I don't think he'd be higher than a flat 5'10 but no lower than 5'9.5. I think 5'10 range is a good guess for him.

---------

You meant 5'9" range? I agree somewhere 5'9.5-5'9.75" is good for him.
khaled taban said on 2/Oct/19
@Christian 6'5 3/8" , I totally agree. With Rob he looks closer to 176cm than 177cm but in the middle is fair enough , so 176.5cm(5'9.5")
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 2/Oct/19
5'9.5" max

Not even a full 5'10.

@Nik

Yeah, we know it changes. We're not dumb Nik. You don't need to regurgitate every last obvious detail on CelebHeights. I hear you're interested in statistics, which is fine, but why not talk about something that no one else knows or that very few know? We can all see the average guess there and how many votes there are. I just think your statement of the obvious is annoying, so may I please ask that you dial it down? Thanks.
Nik Ashton said on 26/Sep/19
@ Bobby - It changes!

Bobby 1.78m said on 26/Sep/19
@Andrea

I wouldn't go lower than 5'9.5 honestly, but 5'10ish isn't a bad claim for him either.
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 26/Sep/19
@Nik

Don't take this the wrong way mate, but we are all cognitively functional people and are capable of seeing what the average guess is and how many votes there have been. You don't have to state the obvious. As for the average guess, I think 5'9.5 is the lowest I'd go for him there, but if he's a minimum of 5'9.5 then plus the 1.25 footwear and he should be 5'10.75 but if 5'9.75 there, he should be measuring in at 5'11. Rob might be in 3/4 footwear since he was in near 1-inch thick footwear. So, the difference is 0.5 or in other words, Gillies has a half-inch advantage over Rob, tentatively. Since he manages to look roughly 5'10 with the footwear advantage, then a figure of 5'9.5 isn't impossible.
Andrea said on 26/Sep/19
Given his footwear (and quite thick hair), he looks closer to 176 than 177, to be honest.
Bobby 5ft 10in (178cm) said on 25/Sep/19
So, Rob, was he in 1.2-inch footwear? He looks roughly 5'10 there with you.
Editor Rob
I doubt less than 1.25.
saltyfish177cm said on 25/Sep/19
that makes sense, since he looks a solid 5'10 here. good listing
saltyfish177cm said on 24/Sep/19
Big Rob, did you and him have similar footwear?
Editor Rob
I forgot to add the line about footwear, I am in near 1in Nikes, he has These boots, which looked a fraction more than an inch.
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 24/Sep/19
@ Erik Gren - I'd say Daniel is nearer the 5ft10 than the 5ft9 mark, so 5ft9.75 seems pretty much spot on! Cheers Erik! πŸ˜πŸ‘
Jacky Huynh said on 2/Sep/19
Looks 177-178cm
Shane minton said on 4/Aug/18
1.5 inches shorter than morgan stand like he's got broom up his ar**
Erik Gren said on 24/Jul/18
I would say that he is between 5’9 (175cm) and 5’10 (178cm).
james said on 22/Dec/17
hard to say, because joseph morgan (klaus) has a penchant for wearing boots, but his posture is much worse than Daniel's... while I agree Joseph is probably 0.75-1 inch taller, I feel like both need to be downgraded almost an inch. Joseph seems to pretty much be Paul Wesley's height, while Daniel is close in height to Ian Somerhalder
Wolf said on 15/Nov/17
Rob if I were you I’d upgrade Gillies to 5’10”. I don’t see a significant height difference when he’s standing next to guys like Joseph Morgan and his other 5’11-range colleagues. In fact at times he’s pretty much at eye level with the other fellas

Yes....... 177cm ....... I will now drink blood. !

Like trying to find upgrades and I think this guy could be. Only have a couple episodes of Originals to go off but he looks more 5'10 range to my eyes.
Not Tom Cruise said on 16/May/16
Rob, how tall would you say Charles Michael Davis (from The Originals) is?
Editor Rob: I'm not sure if he is any taller than a guy like joseph morgan, so I doubt any more than 5ft 11, at times he might even look a bit less.
Amanda said on 24/Apr/15
@179.8 there's one centimeter difference between 177cm and 176cm, there's no point saying he looks like that when he probably doesn't, that's the most stupid comment I've seen in my whole life, who the hell even points that out? IT'S ONE CENTIMETER, WHAT FREAK NOTICES THAT.
Hypado said on 14/Feb/15
Yes, Daniel looks 177/178 cm next to Joseph Morgan in the Originals series.
Billy said on 5/Jan/15
Sweet daniel gillies is up here now! Ya i was confused about his height. Thought he was 5'11. I wonder if Robs met him at a convention tocompare heights
Dan said on 20/Aug/14
I never said it wasn't unnoticable, had a feeling someone would point that out and assume that, I am not stupid, I never said you can't tell the difference, I am saying it is not that much of a difference overall, just saying
179.8 said on 17/Aug/14
He looks 176
Theo said on 9/Aug/14
@Dan,sure numerically 1.5 really isn't a big difference, but when comparing height between someone who's 5'11 and 5'9.5, it's definitely a notable difference. One that anyone could see. Just saying
Dan said on 1/Aug/14
@mr.rashid, because 1.5inches is no where near, sarcasm intended there, 1 and a half inches at the end of the day is not that much.
Dan said on 28/Jul/14
thanks for the upload Rob!, I personally think he is around 5'10- 5'10.5, he never looks much shorter than Joseph Morgan, maybe an inch max difference, and Joseph is always wearing boots in the originals while Daniel has dress shoes
Kourosh177cm said on 28/Jul/14
his long frame makes him whole alot taller i thought he was like 184 to 186cm.
