6ft4 is round down....

He looks closer to 6'6. About 6'5.75

Do you think we can use the image above as a textbook/classic 6'5 flat individual ?
Editor Rob
Yeah I think it's a decent example
Matt6'4.5 said on 19/Jun/22
Would you put a full inch between him and “other Vader” Spencer Wilding?
Editor Rob
I think if you see Spencer standing tall in person, he does look over 6ft 5.
Daniel up close has a better walking and 'standing around talking' posture.
Andrey200 said on 10/May/22
6ft 4 is a weird listing.
Darksol64 said on 24/Feb/22
Good showcasing of a legit 6'5. Big guy territory.

I dare any of the guys in the 6'1 range claiming 6'3 to stand next to him. Nope, he's not 6'7. Sorry!
6ft6 said on 25/Mar/21
In pucture he seems 6ft 5.25 (196.2)
Jkiller said on 14/Dec/20
6'5 is a good listing for him
Jordan87 said on 2/Nov/20

Any Chance this true 6'4+ Guy weighs over 230 pounds?
Editor Rob
maybe just over it
Vincent Caleb said on 25/Oct/20
@Christian 6’5 3/8”: Agreed
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 18/Oct/20
I'd give Yeager the edge.
Hyper said on 17/Oct/20
How does Dan Yeager compare to this guy, in person?
Editor Rob
Well there's not a whole lot between them. If you seen them in person you might class them as kinda similar range, somewhere around 6ft 5, though I think Dan has a good chance of clearing 6ft 5
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Oct/19
Could be Daniel Naprous listed 1/4 too high?
Editor Rob
In person between 1.5-2 inches between petrie and naprous looked believable.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Oct/19
Rob, Click Here Alistair Petrie look at least 6'3 1/2 with Naprous.
Editor Rob
In person I have said Petrie looked strong 6ft 3 range, not impossible to measure near 6ft 3.5.
Canson said on 1/Aug/19
@Woodne: only problem is you lose more than that through a day. I’m similar height and I’m down .9 cm in an hour after waking then another .3 after 2. By the time I’ve been awake 7-8 hours I’m down about 1.9 cm even if I don’t go to the gym. A guy measuring 195.95-196.05 would probably be about 194 at night give or take a mm or two. That comes out to a strong 6’4 range guy just off weak 6’5 probably
woodne said on 23/Apr/19
I also agree with some of the comments below that Daniel appears a solid 6'5"

But this is also interesting...

I think of myself as 6′ 5″ tall (or about 195.58 cm) tall.
•Lets say that I am about 196.0 cm tall when I stand up first thing in the morning. (It doesn’t matter if my exact height at that time is rational or irrational. When I measure myself to be 196.0 cm, I am really saying that my height is between 195.95 and 196.05 cm.)
•Perhaps I am 195 cm tall when I’m ready to go to bed in the evening. (Ditto, see above comment, between 194.95 and 195.05 cm.)

I know these facts:
1.If a person is 196 cm tall in the morning and 195 cm tall in the evening, then at some point during the day, he was EVERY POSSIBLE height between those two numbers at different times of the day, even if only for a fractional instant in time.

Hence agreeing that Daniel appears at least 6'5" at certain times throughout the day.
cmillzz said on 31/Mar/19
Why did they state that he was 6’4?
Editor Rob
Maybe that is a height he was described at.

This guy is closer in height to Tom Hopper than guys like Momoa/Padalecki I feel.
Johan 185 cm said on 30/Mar/19
Decent 6'5" guy one of the true ones. Would like to see the Rock or any other hollywood star claim it when next to him.
Editor Rob
The Rock might cry if he met Daniel and said "I'm 6ft 5, what are you? 6ft 8"

"I'm six five too!"

😰 😰 😰
Canson said on 23/Jan/19
@Bobby: I think he has a shot at the solid 6’5 only because there’s slight lean. But your estimate is reasonable as well. I could go 6’4 7/8-6’5 1/8 perhaps but the 1/8 over is less likely than under
Bobby 5'10 said on 22/Jan/19
6'5 looks legit, and at worse, maybe 6'4 7/8s but that's pretty much 6'5 anyway. His head is just scraping the 6'5 line. So he has more chance of measuring under than over, I think.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 19/Jan/19
The chart prove and look like Daniel Naprous is very legit 6'5 next to Big Rob but not sure if he have equal height on footwear?
Editor Rob
Both roughly near 1 inch footwear
berta said on 9/Jan/19
THis guy and mccan could be same height both legit 6 foot 5? Mamoa looks 193most of the time. i think 6 foot 3 7/8 not really under that.
Christian 6'5 3/8 said on 6/Dec/18

Momoa 6'3.5"
Naprous 6'4.75"
McCann 6'5"
Editor Rob
One thing is certain...Momoa should never claim 6ft 5 when standing beside Daniel, because he'll have to rise up on his toes to justify it.
Jordan87 said on 4/Dec/18
ROb seems to be resting his weight slightly on his left leg, he may drop 1/4". Naprous is under 6'5 but definitely over 6'4".
Canson said on 21/Oct/18
@Dream: I agree with Christian that they would by a tiny bit
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 18/Sep/18
Exactly 6'5 when added 1/8. Rob is 5'8 1/8.
Nik said on 4/Sep/18
It's interesting to see that he was once underlisted on the internet!
berta said on 2/Sep/18
i think he and dawid prowse could have been the same height actually. both about 6 foot 5 and this guy could aeven be couple mm taller
Myself said on 20/Aug/18
Yeah i think these listings may be messed up a little...Click Here
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Jul/18

Yes, only by a tiny bit though.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 25/Jul/18
Would you say Nonso Anozie and Tom Noonan would be taller than Daniel Naprous?
Nik said on 11/Jun/18
I am happy with this listing!
Jordan87 said on 24/May/18
@ Christian,

Yes his bios at 6'4 I def feel are too low for this guy. He is clearly taller than that. One of the very few people underlisted on a bio. If it was Dave Batista or The Rock who was over 6'4 he would get 6'6" listings I bet.
Editor Rob
If Daniel stood beside The Rock and both of them were asked to state their height, you'd be scratching your head because there might be near 3 inches between their 6ft 5 claims.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 14/May/18
Could be 6'4.75" and rounded down and described as 6'4".
Dream(5'9.5 said on 11/May/18
192 cm? Lee would be 191 cm. LOL!

Would you say John Cleese would measure the stronger 6'5"er than Daniel Naprous?
Editor Rob
since seeing Cleese and naprous in the same year Daniel stands out as noticeably taller.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 4/May/18
At worst 6'4.5" but no less than that. No way he's 192.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 4/May/18

@ Rampage,

Yeah I am not sure he is the full 6'5, I had brought this up a while back, but he is taller than 6'4 for sure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Apr/18
192cm is a joke but I could see an argument for 195cm.

He definitely clears 6ft4
Jordan87 said on 9/Apr/18
@ Perhat,

He is most certainly taller than 192cm. C'mon, look at his picture. Christ.
Perhat said on 16/Mar/18
Now 192 Height
Canson said on 22/Oct/17
If rob is dropping posture he may not really be a full 6’5. Rob would be up even higher and he’s above the bottom of his chin already as is. He doesn’t look more than 194-195 with rob honestly. If he’s dropping it then diff story
Jordan87 said on 12/Oct/17

Say Spencer Wilding is of Similar height as Daniel Here, and is 238 pounds as per his own admission, would you place Dan here at 220 lbs solid?
Editor Rob
he must be at least 220ish
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 1/Sep/17
If both Rob and Daniel had equal posture then I guess it's safe to say he's 195.5cm I used to think he was 194.5cm because Rob appeared like he had worse posture in the photo, but he said he didn't.
TheReel said on 10/Aug/17
Editor Rob: "all I can say is he stood very well for the 3 of us in that photoshoot"
Yeah thats what I thought you both look like you are dropping only one centimetre or so, so really your both standing as well as each other is what I meant. This is a textbook 6'5" guy in the picture looks just right around 9 inches with rob He does have a big noggin
TheReel said on 9/Aug/17
"looks 6'5 but its hard to tell cause robs posture is very loose"

No it's not. Why does everyone keep saying this nonsense on this thread? Daniel has his left leg forward bent at the knee, don't take my word for it though listen to Rob "I don't think I dropped anymore than him". If people have been following my comments over these years they would know I've been the main person here for letting people know they have to consider a persons posture. Daniel is a solid 6'5" for sure definitely not under 6'5", there's more chance of 6'5 1/4" than 6'4 3/4"
Editor Rob
all I can say is he stood very well for the 3 of us in that photoshoot.
Jordan87 said on 16/Jul/17
Rob that's interesting I would have liked to see prowse and Daniel together. Prowse certainly had a thicker frame then Daniel that's for sure .
Editor Rob
yeah, I couldn't take photograph in the photo area after Prowse got up from his seat...they always say you can't take photos in these areas, and so I have to respect it.
Jordan87 said on 14/Jul/17

Made Sense b/c the Petrie Pic being back to back is good for a Comparison no doubt. I Notice Petrie has a pretty large head, especially compared to Naprous.
Editor Rob
yes Petrie has a bigger than average head.

It's a shame I couldn't take a photo of when Dave Prowse was standning beside Daniel, as it really would be surprising, thinking Prowse could have been near an inch taller 45 years ago than Daniel...
Jordan87 said on 13/Jul/17

Would you say you are dropping some height , Maybe 1/2" with straighter posture?
Editor Rob
a fraction maybe...I watched Daniel with the 2 people in front and he stood pretty tall.

I watched Alastair Petrie with the people in front and he was dropping 1-2 inches, hence I thought I should try to ask for a pose to get a better photo, I think that one turned out well too.

I certainly dropped more height with Carlos Valdes, Ricky Hatton and Christian that day, than in this shot with Daniel.
Jordan87 said on 6/Jul/17

Yes Mr. Anderson is what Made Empire's fighting scenes special. He was a fencing champion who moved well considering he was fighting with a big clunky suit on. In the Suit he appeared tall enough next to Hamil. 6'1 + 2" Heels, now add the helmet which is at least an Inch.
Steven said on 29/Jun/17
Funny that everyone doesn't recall that Vader was played by former Olympic fencer Bob Anderson during the duel scenes in Empire & Jedi. Bob said in an interview he was 6'1" and he didn't have the build of Prowse either, but her wore lifts that were 2 to 3 inches thick. It was still easy to tower over Hamill who was about 5'7".
Jordan87 said on 23/Jun/17

That 4 was supposed to be a 5. I mentioned 6'5 in the post after. I still think David would be taller than Naprous in his hey day.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 20/Jun/17

I could make a case for Prowse being 6'5", but your previous 6'4" guess was just too low.
Jordan87 said on 18/Jun/17

I think prowse is certainly the most imposing out of the three but sometimes I doubt he was over 6'5". Guy def lost height but at times I doubt his 6'6" claims.

Prowse however was a non- steroid athlete and strong as all hell on his heyday. I Feel bad for him now he doesn't appear to be doing well.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 16/Jun/17

Wilding and Prowse were both about 6'5.5" peak.
Jordan87 said on 15/Jun/17
Christian- 6'5-3/8 ,

I agree with you on robs posture being the weaker of the two. Yes , it is too precise . Arguing on someone being 6'4 3/4 and 6'4 5/8 based of a picture is a waste of time in my opinion since something that close can be affected by posture or the time of day.

A weak 6'5 of course makes more sense. If you straighten rob out to match Daniels posture , Daniel doesn't make the 6'5" anymore that is clear as day.

The point ? He is still a tall mofo and I thought the darth Vader scenes were good In rogue one. Dave prowse ( 1st Brit to deadlift 700 pounds) was a bit thicker than Daniel and Spencer's. Still all around the same height range for the Vader actors.

Wilding : 6'5
Naprous: 6'4.5
Prowse ( 6'4 when he was younger)
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 15/Jun/17

6'4.63" means 6'4 5/8". I was just making a rough estimate. I've seen some users who use 8th inch guesses, not only me. A true precise guess would be going as far as 16th of an inch. If my guess was too precise for you, I'll just go ahead and say that Naprous is a weak 6'5".
ma said on 13/Jun/17
Legit 6 ft 5 Christian 196.5
Jordan87 said on 13/Jun/17
Christian-196.5cm ( 6'5 3/8),

Dude....How in the blue hell are you calculating his height down to 6'4.63? I agree He is likely not taller than you are, but Jesus Christ with the precise Guesses already lol.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jun/17
Rob, is it possible that he actually claimed 6ft4?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure...
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 12/Jun/17
6'4.75" afternoon, 6'4.63" before bed. People who are saying that Naprous is 6'5.25" or 6'5.5" don't realize how tall a true 6'5.25"-6'5.5" looks next to a 5'8" person.
Dimitris said on 10/Jun/17
Taller than Joe Manganiello up close Rob?
Editor Rob
both seemed within same range, but Joe did have a little bit more so the odds are someone like Daniel might measure a bit taller.
Bard said on 10/Jun/17
Does look 6'5 here.
184guy said on 9/Jun/17
@Rob I Was comparing his height chart With AJ and they doesn't look different , even including AJ 0.3in advantage over you. Did AJ looked 2 cms taller in person ???
Editor Rob
Joshua is taller in person.

Cudmore is a big inch taller than Naprous, before considering he had 0.4 worse footwear.
ma said on 9/Jun/17
@Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8)

Also Napron is not in a perfect posture... he looks relaxed with shoulders and neck...If Rob and this guy would stay in military posture I believe that the difference between them would be the same as shown in this pic
Editor Rob
Daniel is standing quite tall, I watched him with the 2 guys before me and he barely dropped anything.
Csimpson 6ft said on 9/Jun/17
I strongly disagree with the 6ft 4.75 estimates on here that hes getting, judging by the height chart he might be a bit over 6ft 5 but because he is tilting his head slightly he looks bang on the 6ft 5 mark, i can definitely see him being a strong 6ft 5 guy since Rob is 5ft 8 1/8th so 6ft 5 1/8th is possible, it does look like a solid 9 inches between Rob and Daniel to me.
Sam said on 9/Jun/17
I'd say he's a stronger 6'5"er than many of the actors who actually claim that height.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 9/Jun/17

You're forgetting the fact that Rob has looser posture. You can't make an estimation on someone's height without considering posture and footwear (in this case, probably no footwear advantage because Rob didn't mention anything about it)
Arch Stanton said on 9/Jun/17
Alright maybe not "easily" 6'5" in the way that Klitshcko and Stern are but can't believe some people think he's shorter!
Andrea said on 9/Jun/17
That's a good idea, Arch! Hopefully, people will stop saying he looks 6'4.5 now!
The top of his head seems right around the 6'5 mark so he does look right around 9 inches taller, as I said. 😉
Plus, if you consider that Rob is ALWAYS over 5'8 and 5'8 1/8 at his absolute worst, you could say he looks more a fraction over 6'5 than just 6'5 flat...
Arch Stanton said on 9/Jun/17
He's easily 6'5, if anything, stood his best I could buy 6'5.25.
ma said on 9/Jun/17
@Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8)

This guy is taller than 6 ft 4.5 or 6 ft 4.75. He is taller than Manganiello considering the height chart ( Manganiello is close to 6 ft 5 thanks to his hair and this guy is bald and reaches 6 ft 5).
Judging on this pic, and considering Rob as a solid 5 ft 8, this guy looks a solid 6 ft 5 in the worst case ( even 6ft 5.25 or 6 ft 5.5 are probable for him). I think that this guy height would be very similar with Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) (if this is his lower height).
If he got listed at 194-195 cm he would be the most underrated height on this site.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/17
Rob, what are the chances of 194cm?
Editor Rob
195-6 zone seemed much more believable than 194.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Jun/17
Rob can you put up the height chart like on the Manganiello page or there is a reason not to?
Editor Rob
yes, I'll put one up for him.
Danimal said on 8/Jun/17
Could easily pass for 6'6". Shocked that he was given a 6'4" on that Grand Prix website. He would match David Prowse at his peak. He also looks way older than a mere 39! I'm 39 and this guy easily looks to be in his early 50's.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Jun/17
Oh c'mon he looks a comfortable 6'5 here as Andrea and Connor say. More chance of 6'5.25 than 6'4.5. Kristian Nairn must have serious health issues if he's shrinking that much!!!
Andrea said on 8/Jun/17
Yeah, Rob. This looks like a textbook example of a 9 inches difference (no less than that).
You could even say that he looks more 6'5.25, considering that you yourself are more 5'8.25 than just 5'8! One of the few celebrities that look as tall as listed with you. In fact, I was expecting a 6'5.5-6'6 listing... 😁
Editor Rob
he's no taller than the 6ft 5 1/8th guy I measured, although has a better posture than that challenger in person when standing and walking about...

Kristian Nairn was really barely even taller than Naprous at that event, but as I've mentioned, Nairn is now bent forward with his backside sticking out and looks miles away from 6ft 9 when walking about...
184guy said on 7/Jun/17
@Rob,could you add the height chart in the pic ?
Canson said on 7/Jun/17
I agree with Christian more 6'4.5 194-194.5cm he's not solid 6'4" tho
Csimpson 6ft said on 7/Jun/17
He does look a good 6ft 5 guy with you Rob, definitely one of your best listings by far, yeah i am very suprised aswell that hes only 39! like arch said he really does look more like in his 50s, especially since his hair is grey! Unless he dyed it...
Matthew Robinson said on 7/Jun/17
Does this guy claim 6'4"? I guess he could be the kind of guy who measures 6'4.5" in the p.m. hours. I fan's dry 6'4" flat with Rob. He basically looks right around 6'5" although thinking of Rob next to challenger 15, I could see where this guy could be 6'4.5" as well - and if the 6'4" came from him I'd suspect it could mean 6'4" and change.
Editor Rob
in Horse competition he might have been called 6ft 4, but I'd be surprised.
184guy said on 7/Jun/17
@Rob , How he stack up with a guy Like Rory , Joe or Mantle ?
Editor Rob
Mantle today I think is around 6ft 5, Joe (with a bit more footwear) looked near 6ft 5, but Clive Russell 4 years ago standing tall looked over 6ft 5.

Cudmore (with nearly 1/2 inch less footwear than me) is a big inch taller up close than 6ft 5 guys like Naprous.
Jordan87 said on 7/Jun/17
Rob is losing a bit of height with his posture. Daniel Certainly is not under the 6'4" Listing his gets. Like I said Earlier he seems just as tall as Spencer Wilding.
Aza said on 7/Jun/17
Looks a good 6'5 to me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jun/17
6ft4 flat is too low. Could be a fraction under 6ft5 though
Sam said on 7/Jun/17
He did a good job cutting an intimidating figure in Rogue One and unmasked he has the look more so than Spencer of a villain rather than a thuggish henchman (no offense!).
184guy said on 7/Jun/17
@Rob, did he looked similar in person tô Joe ?
Nik said on 7/Jun/17
@ Arch Stanton

I see what you mean.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jun/17
It might be one of those cases where he's embarrassed to say 6'5, Jamie Theakston for instance thinks of it as freak height. Yeah if anything you could believe 6'5.5 more than 6'4. In fact he looks similar in the photo to that Scottish actor Rob has at 6'5.5.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 7/Jun/17
Rob has bad posture, so not a solid 6'5", but 6'4.5" or 6'4.75" is possible. SJH's 6'4" estimate is too low though. He looks the same height as Manganiello does next to Rob, and Manganiello's 194.5cm, so Naprous is 194.5 as well.
World Citizen said on 7/Jun/17
A classic example of a legit 6 ft 5 guy.
phil said on 7/Jun/17
id say hes a bit over 8 inches taller than rob, id give 6"4 1/4 6"4 1/2
Tunman said on 6/Jun/17
If anything this guy could push 6'5.5 if we assume his head is near 10".The 6'4 description is strange.I'm assuming the pic gives him advantage
S.J.H said on 6/Jun/17
Rob dropping height. Sticking in neck and a slight slouch. Daniel Naprous is 6'4-6'4.5
Nik said on 6/Jun/17
He looks mega tall!
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jun/17
6 ft 5 was my first guess when I saw the height difference in the small image. Definitely taller than 6'4. Big guy, nice shirt too.
Jordan87 said on 6/Jun/17
Wow Rob, Nice Pic.

He looks at least near Spencer Wilding in height.
Andrea said on 6/Jun/17
Wow Rob, you have this guy at 6'5 and he does look right around 6'5 with you. I'm impressed!
I could even buy a solid 6'5, based on the picture. This IS how a 5'8 guy should look next to a 6'5 one...
Unless you're dropping more height than him, of course...

Editor Rob
yes, I would say Daniel was right about 6ft 5 that day, it would be a worthy addition to the height challenge.
