How tall is Danny Dyer

Danny Dyer's Height

5ft 11.5in (181.6 cm)

English Actor best known for roles in movies like The Football Factory, Doghouse and Severance. On tv he can be seen in Eastenders. I saw him at a Collectormania in 2007, in this pic with me I'm sure he had a little less in trainers than I had. On his twitter he said "I'm 6 foot.". I also saw him at another event in 2011 and he looked between 5ft 11 and 6ft.

Hyde said on 1/Jun/17
Im nearly sure he was described as being ''6' 1'' on imdb, around 2007.

@bazza if you look at the ep when dyer and blackwood are running, dyer edges him by a little like he does with scott maslen. And the ep when maslen and hubbard are walking next to eachother to the vic they are the same height. Id say they both 180-181cm and dyer 183+cm
Bazza said on 24/May/17
@samuelcharwick - you have got me thinking now! i will check it out when i get the chance, i really don't think Maslan is as tall as Blackwood but there should be some screen time between them where we can see. I still think Dyer and Blackwood are about the same too, 6'0 bracket, but it is debatable..
samuelcharwick said on 23/May/17
@bazza dyer looked slightly taller then blackwood or maslen who were both the same height. I am gusessing they are both around 5'11 no way Scot is 5'10.
Bazza said on 23/May/17
@Samuel Charwick - Blackwood is around 6'0 i believe.. Maslan is stated as 6'0 on google but that isn't right, looks a couple of inches smaller than Danny Dyer on screen, i would say 5'10 range for him.
samuelcharwick said on 22/May/17
hes wake up at atleast 184cm and maybe at night 183-182cm.
samuelcharwick said on 21/May/17
how tall you think scott maslen(jack branning) and richard blackwood (vincent hubbards)?

and also, i am 178cm(5'10.25ft) out of bed and 176.5cm(5'9.5ft) before bed. Im 19 years old at the moment, is it possible to get to 180cm before i am done growing?
Bazza said on 15/May/17
@Rob - how tall do you think the guy who players Martin Fowler is? his name is James Bye, seeing him act on screen with the guys listed around 6 foot on here i.e - Dyer, Ritchie, Blackwood etc.. he seems to tower over them and the rest of the cast but i was pretty shocked to see him listed at just 6'2 on the web. I would have pegged him 6'3 plus.
Editor Rob: could be over 6ft 2, but not watched much of him really.
Doom said on 26/Apr/17
Rob why does he look so short in this Click Here

Most of the actors in the scene above look average height yet hes still the shortest at 182cm....

He looks 5'7 in that scene.
Victor Surratt said on 4/Feb/17
Rob, he have a good posture in the picture? the coat confuse me. If is that the case, i see 5´11.5 surely
Editor Rob: Dyer measures I believe somewhere around 5ft 11.5 range, not as tall as six foot, but more than 5ft 11.
Scott said on 11/Jan/17
Have worked with Danny on a number of occasions. Lovely guy, I am 180cm and he is marginally taller than me. 182cn fits absolutely perfectly. A hair under 6 foot but understandable he would claim it as closer to 6 foot than 5'11.

Case closed.
Sandy Cowell said on 3/Jan/17
I saw him last night on EastEnders and he looked huge next to 5ft3 Shona Galarty. Yes, I don't regret putting 5ft11 and I would even now believe half to three-quarters- of-an-inch more after last night's careful bit of viewing!
Sandy Cowell said on 2/Jan/17
I see there is quite a bit of conflict going on in Danny's list of comments!
I'll have my work cut out tonight when I see 'EastEnders'!
He also stars in a film called 'Straightheads', a revenge thriller with Gillian Anderson playing his girlfriend!
I also have a few horrors/gangland thrillers with Danny, so for the time being, and based on what I have seen of him, I would say he is above average. I shall go for 5ft11 from the above picture with Rob! The women I have seen him star with are all notably shorter than he is!
Jay 184cm said on 31/Dec/16
His eyes look really low down his head here meaning he has a bigger than average forehead. I can see at least 3-4 inches between Rob and Danny in the photo. Also, I've just seen Danny on Alan Carr's New Year's Eve show with 6 foot 2 (?) Greg Rutherford. There was not more than 2 inches between them. I have to say Dyer pulls off a solid 182-183cm vibe.
joe joe said on 13/Oct/16
just found a pick of my mate and shane ritchie today. My mate on the far left is a flat 5'10. what hieght would you give richie and suggs Rob?

Click Here
Editor Rob: in person Richie at least looked over 5ft 11 flat to me.

Both guys on the edge are nearer and you can see with streets they are tricky. This is why big G's heights were all over the place...
Vlad said on 8/Oct/16
I saw Danny Dyer at a book signing at Waterstones (a book store) in Colchester, UK a few years ago. There is no way he is 5 foot 11. I am 175cm and he looked around my height.
Jeff iles said on 23/Sep/16
I saw Danny Dyer in a hotel,he walked past me within inches. He was walking in between 2 average height guys and he looked really short to me.I am 6 foot 1 inches and he was more like 5 foot 7 inches.Trust me when I tell you that he is nowhere near 5 foot 11 inches.
Editor Rob: maybe his tough guy swagger made him seem shorter!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Apr/16
@James B: My thoughts exactly or at least 6ft1! A legit 5ft11½ guy claiming 6ft is fine to be honest...because he will be that height earlier in the day
James B said on 24/Apr/16
Obviously dyer isn't humble enough to say '5'11 1/2' for his height. With an ego his size surprised he doesn't claim 6'2.
NBAer said on 7/Mar/16
Can't judge by the pic,because both Big Rob and Dyer were leaning,but eye-level wise i can see a good 7.5-8 cm difference,so could be anywhere between 181-182 range,similar to Dmeyer.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Feb/16
short 5'9 to 5'10 guy said on 8/Feb/16
I have seen danny dyer in quite a few films and his deadliest men documentaries. He is below average height because he
appears small when compared to other people on screen. He is not even 5'11 in the morning.

First off, 5ft9-10 isn't short at all. It's actually bang on the average height in the UK/IRL so you can quit the insecure negative jabs at guys taller than you. In other EU countries that might be a different story but not in the British Isles. Secondly, Dyer generally can look close to his claim. I certainly wouldn't guess him shorter than 5ft11.

Looks a 3 inches taller then Alan Carr though, so 5'11.25
S.J.H said on 29/Jan/16
Don't fool by Danny short head and taller hair. He deads on 5''11 at best and probably 5'10.75 is closer in fact
Bennybj said on 13/Dec/15
Rob when you meet these celebrities could you take a tape measure and measure them or do you just go there in disguise as a fan boy?
Editor Rob: I'm just guessing how tall someone looks and getting photos to show I met them and hopefully give an idea their range they can look.

It helps seeing an actor with other convention attendees whose height I Dyer's case I seen him a few times, one time he stood beside Jenny and I think 182 is a good fit for him.
Rory said on 10/Sep/15
Di Angelo looks a smallish or maybe average height guy, id have thought 5'8-5'9 based on what ive seen of him on eastenders, 5'11 would surprise me. 5'9 I could believe.
James B said on 26/Aug/15
Just because he claims does not mean he is :)
James B said on 25/Aug/15
Rob to me dyer looked to have minimum 1 inch on matt di angelo so I think we can rule out 5'11 for matt
[Editor Rob: he could be between 5ft 10 and 11, his claim is 5ft 11.]
an anonymous peach said on 13/Aug/15
I do think he's nearer to 6ft than he is to being 5ft 11.5
Locco said on 6/Jun/15
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Apr/15
Richie can pass for 6ft. I give him 5ft11½(182cm) at least. Not 6ft1 as is listed in most places.

Rob, any chance of giving him a page?
[Editor Rob: ritchie at 5ft 11.5 range is much more likely than a 6ft 1!]
James B said on 30/Mar/15
Shane Richie i think is 5'11.25
lollipop1995 said on 15/Feb/15
Rob, do you know Danny's daughter, Dani? How tall do you think she is? She's also an actress
[Editor Rob: what, he named his daughter after himself, well phonetically. Imagine the confusion that causes to the women in his life!
As for her height she looks quite petite maybe somewhere around the 5ft 1 range.]
teej said on 9/Feb/15
I think he is 6 foot. From seeing him every week on eastenders he appears to be consistently taller than shane ritchie, , and shane ritchie is apparently 6ft. Even in this pic he's slouching, a little more than you rob? I would believe 183-184cm for him. Look at his posture and ducking of head, kind of like james gandolfini's posture making him appear to look shorter than he was. You know the majority of the time agree with your listings rob, but on this one i think he may be taller.
[Editor Rob: Dyer stood beside Jenny a couple years ago, with same posture and he looked no more than 5ft 11.5, just not as tall as six footers look to me or beside her.]
TJE said on 16/Oct/14
He appears near enough 5'11.5 if he stood up straight of course. Looks pretty stoned here too.
jamie179cm said on 7/Oct/14
rob this listing is the best he look like a legit 182cm guy to me
jimbob said on 23/Jul/14
5'11.5 is accurate
James B said on 12/Jul/14
Rob he ain't looking even 5'11.5 with Martin kemp who is listed here at 6'0
Click Here

Although at the event the pics are taken dyer does have quite flat trainers. Not impossible either that kemp is 184cm.
[Editor Rob: to be fair he is further away there and not at his person he's not a six footer]
cole said on 29/May/14
5'11.5 is spot on.
teej said on 6/May/14
I seriously think he's a strong 6 foot for some reason, looks 184cm to me, he has a large head, which could make him bigger. I'm 6'1.5(187) and the top of my head to the bottom of my nose is just under 7 inches I have a longish head, for most people I know its 6 inches, but I think this could be the same for him, his forehead appears to be larger than most people, so in real life he may look taller than he appears?
Crash said on 22/Apr/14
Didn't recognise him without his beard lol!
James B said on 17/Apr/14
On his first episode of eastenders looked 186cm for some reason?
Alex 6ft 0 said on 4/Apr/14
Jake, I agree he's where you start to be considered tallish to people. When I was 5'11-5'11.5 I was getting called tall from people though I was 16-17 though
Alex 6ft 0 said on 4/Apr/14
Rob maybe 5'11-5'11.25?
[Editor Rob: I think this current mark is as close as I'd say]
Crash said on 12/Feb/14
"he could be either 5ft 11.5 or 11.75, that's my thought, so I leave him with the taller end of the guess!"

He's 5'11.5" now? What made you change your mind?
[Editor Rob: I think this is the mark he'd measure]
James said on 4/Jan/14
LG69 says on 26/Nov/13
He looks like Adam Richman. Close to 6'0.

Nah young dan akykroyd
James said on 1/Jan/14
Rob he looks under 182cm next to vinnie jones......

James said on 31/Dec/13
Rob in east endears he looks 6'1 and is taller than Shane Richie. Compared to 5'11 actors who have been on the soap he looks much taller than 180cm.
[Editor Rob: I can't buy it, the last time I seen him he was beside Jenny...and he really didn't look a 6 footer.]
LG69 said on 26/Nov/13

JonDaMon said on 21/Nov/13
He's a decent height for sure, actually looks a bit taller than this in some of his films.
17, 183 said on 26/Sep/13
@ Rob how could Jenny tell that he was .88 mm off 6'0? Seems a bit far fetched.
[Editor Rob: she's seen a few people measured around 6ft mark, and like myself, she didn't think he looked as tall as the people we know around that range.

he could be either 5ft 11.5 or 11.75, that's my thought, so I leave him with the taller end of the guess!]
jordydecke said on 5/Aug/13
met him several times and I'd say he is just a shade under 6', perhaps 6' upon waking. He seems a lot taller though, when I first saw him in football factory I thought he was 6'2 for some reason has a tall vibe.
Pat said on 22/Jul/13
looks to be 5ft11 not much taller
Elijah said on 14/Jul/13
truth that might be average where you are but not in most of the west where it's more like 177-178, so don't apply your country's "standard" to other countries. So 182 definitely isn't average either.
truth177cm said on 25/Jun/13
ice 179/180cm is actually average(properly measured not just you or anyone here who claims 2 inches to be taller than they are). 3cm over average is already a bit tall. 177-181cm is average (5ft10 and 5ft11 guys always appear average).
josh said on 3/Jun/13
182 is spot on i would say,he is similar height build to James May
Ice said on 3/Jun/13
James says on 30/Nov/12
Maybe people dislike him cause is famous, tallish and good looking (no homo)

182 cm isnt tallish . Its average
Scott 5'11 said on 5/Feb/13
Looks 5'11.5 here if he stood straight. He could possibly be 6 foot out of bed but under for the rest of the day. Spot on
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/12
No it's because he's overly vain and arrogant, James.
Trenton said on 14/Dec/12
Jack the Lad is exactly what I've thought of him in the past actually. Anyway, I think this listing is about right, and the reason his thumb looks so long is because Rob's is only sort of half up.

miko says on 2/Nov/11
I'm 6'0, and have seen the arrogant ***** up close, he was shorter.

Yeah I get the same vibe from him, I think cocky or Jack the Lad would better describe him. Might be a nice guy but I just get the feeling I'd strongly dislike him.

This listing is spot on-- 182 cm.
Cranberries said on 14/Aug/12
Still think he deserves a nomination for world's longest thumbs.
Hob said on 31/Jul/12
he look a good 5'11 but not with rob.
John B said on 4/Jun/12

[Editor Rob: good to see you, it was freezing the stadium that Sunday so I didn't stay in there that much!]
FACE said on 18/Jan/12
183cm i think but maybe that is because evryone looks taller on screen
but i really think he is a 6 footer
Tman said on 6/Dec/11

5.11 is about right to me here.
LAN Jiao said on 3/Nov/11
rob, what he atually claims? 5'11.5 or 6'0? in film he look 5'11-6'0 , hard for this guy. he had a small face and head.
[Editor Rob: I don't know what he says himself.
miko said on 2/Nov/11

I think he is 183cms on the dot..!!!
[Editor Rob: saw him last weekend, asked jenny to go stand beside him as he was watching a screen.

asked jenny if she thought he was as tall as someone we both know is measured 183cm like Alex and she said No.

I'm sticking by my 182cm range.]
sean73 said on 14/Oct/11
Rob i think you should upgrade this guy to 6-0.
Shaun said on 5/Sep/11
Can look 6'1" at times on screen.
Shaun said on 5/Sep/11
I don't know if anybody's noticed but a legit 6' onscreen can really look tall. The majority of people on television it seems are under six. This guy looked tall in the gypsy camp in the programme with Paddy Doherty who compared to Dyer and Bobby in Big Brother I'd estimate at 5'8"..
jake said on 5/Aug/11
182-183 cm seems correct yes.
Alex said on 4/Aug/11
Its really hard to tell the difference between 5'11.75 and 6'0 but this guy looks 5'11 1/2 I'd say.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Jun/11
I think adding the extra 0.25in wouldn't hurt
James said on 13/Jun/11
i think 182cm is fair.
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 12/Jun/11
DORIAN! lol..I see nothing out of the 181-182 range..182cm is fair but possible a bit less. Always looks tallish wenever I see him
James said on 8/Jun/11
yeah defenintly not a legit 6ft but not far off.
benj said on 31/May/11
i'm sure a thumbs size is just that- just because Danny dyer has the head of a retarded infant doesn't mean he has the mind of damn
Cranberries (6 ft. 3.25 evening, 17 years) said on 17/May/11
Is it just me, or is Dyer's thumb about twice the length of Rob's?
Dyer looks like a small, weak 6'0" to me.

His height is very good, maybe I am biased as he same height as me.

I met him last night. He is easily 6ft, maybe even 6ft+0.5".

I've actually seen him once at a train station in. I was 6ft @ the time and when I walked past him we seemed pretty much the same. I think the height given is accurate.

Yeah looks bang on that height, has the frame to look of average tall height

For about three weeks she was the sexiest woman in the world. I saw her in Santa Monica last summer she looked to be about five seven. She's still incredible. She was Elizabeth Hurley before there was one.
