How tall is Darius Campbell

Darius Campbell's Height

6ft 4in (193 cm)

Scottish Singer and West End Actor. He says in an MTV interview: "I'm 6 foot 2 and 3/4 but I reckon people think I'm taller 'cos my hair is quite high."

He has said this a few times, but from Darius-Danesh.org.uk, here is a fan's recounting of what he said: "I knew he kept saying he was 6ft2, but I didn't believe it. "Come on Darius, what height are you?" He leaned over and whispered in my ear that he is 6ft 3 1/2ins. I was quite happy to believe that one and told him so with a smile."

Don't see him as this big 195 cm type you guys are acting like he is when I compare him with his wife. Looks 6'3.5" - 6'4" at lot, honestly.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 24/Aug/17
I find it a bit weird for a 6'4" guy to downplay his height by claiming something so precise as 6'2.75"
Editor Rob: it could be the opposite of someone inflating their height like saying 6ft 4 and 3/8ths. People think 'so specific' he is telling the truth?
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 23/Aug/17
Darius admitted to being 6'2.75" and another time 6'3.5", so why do you have him at 6'4" Rob?
Editor Rob: I think when he was with Natasha Henstridge, he looked more a solid 6ft 4 than under it...maybe trying to break into the Pop world he did feel too tall and played it down a bit.

I thought he look closer to 6'5 than 6'4.

i think he can be a 194 cm guy

He looks a weak 6'5.

Looked to have close to 4 inches on Tamer Hassan in a recent photo, although postures weren't the best.

On balls of steel a woman interviewing him remarked how tall he was

almost 6'5 maybe the truth
S.J.H said on 6/Nov/16
He look 195ish with 6'1 jonathan ross easily. I wouldn't question if his under 6'5 if i don't know he claim 6'3.5 thats ridiculous
Aza said on 22/Oct/16
He is a tall dude. Believe he is 6'4.25.Over 6'5 first thing in the morning.
S.J.H said on 20/Oct/16
Atually if he claim 6'5 or almost 6'5 at the start no much people will question him. I just can't see him the same height as those 6'4er actors. He must have at least 2cm on them
123 said on 2/Oct/16
darius is slightly taller than the average 6'4er @ 195cm 6'4 3/4
S.J.H said on 26/Sep/16
6'4.5 he could be this range as lowest and i don't think just 6'4-6'4.25 is enough
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Sep/16
Arch, you live on this site. Don't even go there
Arch Stanton said on 9/Sep/16
In fairness in some pics he doesn't look over 6'4. The ones I see of him in the papers though always tend to be ones of him looking taller. Maybe you're right after all ;-) I think he tends to look roughly between 6 and 7 inches taller than Natasha who is 5'9.5 on here I think and you've met Rob. So actually that does point more to 6'4 flat but there's a chance of 194. Meh, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it! He's 6'4 range anyway.
Editor Rob: on balance he could be like a Skarsgard just over 6ft 4, he's on a big list of people I will eventually relook at.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Sep/16
When you see him in pics like Click Here and Click Here though your immediate thought is over 6'4 flat. Guessing height can be quite tricky though! At least you don't have him at 6'2.75 anyway! 6'4 is at least in the ballpark but really the very lowest I'd have guessed.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Sep/16
It's just there's some people on here you seem more rigidly set with than others. Every poster says exactly the same thing but if you don't agree with it it remains as it is. Rampage in particular I've seen repeat himself 20 or 30 times on the same page LOL and he's really wasting his time as not every guy is 189 ;-). Over the years you've agreed with me on a heck of a lot of changes, most in fact, generally we agree on at least 90% of the listings don't we and you've always been quite responsive when I've shown some video clips and images with tweaks or where I've made suggestions you've said "quite possible" even if not altered. There's also been a few cases when I argued something and like this you sort of said that and let it stay as it was and then a few years later it eventually ends up at the listing I'd thought originally haha! I'm often wrong though, we're all guessing! Admittedly I find 6'4 + range tougher to guess because skinny guys in that range can really pull off taller and they're further away from average height to really nail them. I'm better at guessing on upper average to 6'3 range than very tall. At this listing Darius is 6 ft 5 in shoes, it's a big height of course so you might be right, it's just whenever I've seen him with Natasha and some others I got a stronger 6'4 impression, he can look very similar to peak Christopher Lee. It's not easy to tell, I think 6'4 is the very lowest I could see him at that though.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Sep/16
That's the downside to this site, once Rob has decided not to upgrade or downgrade anybody a lot of time gets wasted. Give up everybody, Rob doesn't want him to be taller than 6'4 because Darius is pure cheese, let's face it ;-)
Editor Rob: Comments let people add an opinion and with any listing, if I think another guess might be a better fit, I alter it.

If I look again at Campbell when I get time, think 6ft 4 and change is a better fit, he would end up on it.
Arch Stanton said on 8/Sep/16
Rob, check him out with Tim Rice, suppoedly the same height ;-) Click Here Click Here Tim Rice is 71 and on average shouldn't be much under 6'3 now.. I think an upgrade for this guy has been a long time coming, generally looks very similar to a peak Christopher Lee. Slouches a lot, stood his best I'd be surprised if he only measured 6'4 flat, if you're not going to give him a 6'4.5, maybe give him 6'4.25 (194) like Skarsgaard or something, he just consistently looks taller than 6'4 flat.
S.J.H said on 5/Sep/16
More i look at Darius Campbell now i hardly see him under 195cm especially next to natasha henstridge , so i think he really pass for 6'5 and he look the same physical and resemblance as 6'5 prince felipe. 6'4 way too low
movieguy said on 5/Feb/16
I googled Tim Rice and Darius and he looked about 3 inches taller than Tim in pictures as the previous poster more or less states. They can't both be 6'4'' although Darius is much younger won't have lost any height. I think Darius is 6'5'' or thereabouts.
Anonymous said on 4/Oct/15
He's taller than Tim Rice by quite a bit.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Aug/15
Rob, could you bump this guy up a fraction?
Dciple said on 24/May/15
Darius will be just over 6ft 3 and a 1/2" tall barefoot. I've met him several times and had pics with him. His shoes normally have about 1/2 inch heel, meaning he stands over 6ft 4" in the street. I've met Natasha too a couple of times. She's between 5'8 and 5'9, so in heels stands a good 6ft!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Feb/15
Guys shaving off 1in is understandable but 2-3in is like cutting a friggin' tree down!
The Exorcist said on 2/Oct/14
There really isn't many pictures of Darius with other celebs. And those he is pictured with are a lot shorter than him. It would be nice if he could get pics with people in his range, like Stephen Fry and Jeremy Clarkson. That would be interesting.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/14
Rob, I think 6ft4.5 is spot on for Darius
The Exorcist said on 24/Sep/14
@Arch: Thanks! :)

(in your photo) she's pretty close to 6" shorter than him in those heels.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Sep/14
Rob don't you think he can really look 6'5" at times? Click Here She'd probably be a solid 5'11" in those heels and he's looking a good 6 inches taller. Looks like an incredibly cheesy date though :-)
[Editor Rob: at times he will, there is a chance he is 6ft 4.5]
Arch Stanton said on 12/Sep/14
Rob has met Natasha and believed she looked a genuine 5'9.5". Well she's in heels here and still way off Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 12/Sep/14
@Matthew. See him in flip flops next to a heeled Natasha Henstridge and try telling me he's under 6'4...
Arch Stanton said on 12/Sep/14
@Exorcist, Great find, I was looking for that video on youtube a while back. I remember he claimed 6 ft 2 around that time which was laughable. I remember watching it with my sister and us both laughing at his claim as it was pretty obvious he was looking nearer 6 ft 5 in comparison. I still think 6'4.5" would be a better listing.
The Exorcist said on 10/Sep/14
He looks close to a full foot taller than Declan Donnelly, and a full head taller than Ant in this video.

The 6'5" listings could be right on the money, Rob! :)
Mathew said on 30/Jul/14
Am I the only one who thinks he often doesn't even look this tall? Some of you guys are talking about him pushing 6'5", if that was true he would be much taller than his wife even when she wore heels. But no, she actually comes up to his eye line a lot, which would tend to suggest he could be under 6'4" if anything. I'd say 6'3.5", 6'4" is possible. Over 6'4" seems unlikely.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Jul/14
@176cm It is possible he got measured barefoot at 6'2.75 but it would be with very loose posture with feet fairly apart and after a long hard day...
176,2Tunman said on 19/May/14
Must be the first guy who gets a much superior estimate by Rob and could even look taller actually.6'4 is really the minimum and he could very well be 6'4.5.
Reminds me of one guy I knew at university.Once I asked him his height and he answered 189 but really looked a solid 191 at least,I could understand if he rounded down to 190,but saying 189 was strange.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Mar/14
At some point Rob might meet him and upgrade him a tad :-]
Arch Stanton said on 12/Mar/14
I was going to say he's in the stage production of From Here to Eternity the Musical on the West End/ That was a great film seems a strange choice for stage though with Darius!!
Brandon said on 24/Dec/13
Saw him earlier today at London stage show From Here To Eternity.
6'4 at VERY least, could probably look as tall as 6'6 without to much trouble.

Too hard to estimate height from people on stage, but I'd say 6'4.5/6'5 is a safe bet, likely in the 193-196 cm range.
Alex (London) said on 29/Nov/13
I walked past him some years ago on the corner of King's Road in Chelsea.

I don't really follow those TV talent shows but my female companion told me who he was after we passed him.

I remember him being VERY tall. I do not know why he would claim 6'2' when he is noticeably taller?

6'4" - 6'5" in my estimation.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Oct/13
Oddly he can not look very tall range next to tallish people Click Here Those are his parents on the right. His dad looks around 6', mother about the same height in low heels so she's probably 5'10 ish. Obviously gets his height from his mother. But doesn't look a legit 6'5" in that photo IMO proportionally.
jordydecke said on 18/Oct/13
as a side note to my previous comment I saw Gareth Gates at some club night (when he was still relatively famous) and he is the 6'1 that he claims. Which I found funny at the time as I always thought he'd be around 5'9.
jordydecke said on 18/Oct/13
Not more than a year ago I went to a reading for a small part in a TV show (didn't get it) and I was chatting to a guy who was waiting at the same time. At one time we were stood up and I couldn't believe how tall this guy was (he didn't look as if he'd be that tall seated). Anyway, the guy turned out to be Darius and I'd have to say that he stood six five, guy's got a decent build too. I actually confess to wearing lifts to this audition so I was about 6-6'1 and he made me feel short.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Sep/13

Here's the full shot. He's wearing flat mocassin like shoes similar to Jeremy Clarkson and is slumped in posture and still looks minimum 6 ft 5 in my opinion. She's got to around 6ft in those heels and I think he looks near 6 inches taller if stood straight. He looks the same height as Manganiello to me anyway. I think 6'4.5" would be fair.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Sep/13
Khloe Kardashian passes 6 ft in heels I think.

I think he'd be similar to how Manganiello looked next to Kevin Nash.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Sep/13
Rob can you upgrade him a cm, I think 6'4.5" is fair for him, he consistently looks around 195cm, 194 I think would be nearer what he is.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Aug/13
Rob, maybe it's about time you upgraded him?

He looks at least 6ft4.5, if not 6ft5

Girl on the left looks like she's pretty tall for a female and in big heels and she's barely up to his mouth level! He actually reminds me of Vlad Klitshko in that pic by his proportions and hair
Arch Stanton said on 29/Mar/13
He has very similar proportions to a peak Christopher Lee, looked just like Dracula in the opera. Not quite as skinny as Lee but still slim. I think 6'4.5" would be nearer what he is. But I think he's obviously not under 6'5" in shoes, a good example of a strong 6'4" guy I think.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Dec/12
Rob, my post and question didn't come through, it was a comparison of Jonathan Ross and Darius.

Looks maybe 3-3.5 inches on Jonathan Ross? Not sure if Ross would have footwear advantage. Rob what would you guess based on this photo of his height and footwear difference?
[Editor Rob: close to 6ft 5 ]
Arch Stanton said on 15/Dec/12
Definitely has a complex about his height, or a reverse complex LOL. I remember when he claimed 6 ft 2 on X Factor and was clearly looking more 6 ft 5!! In those days I used to watch that rubbish! He looks the same height as a peak Christopher Lee, looked very similar in frame and appearance to him I thought when I saw him on something singing opera a while back.

This guy is very tall. At least 6'5'' I'd say. Strange he downplays his height. Most guys round up or add on an inch.

Physics Enemy says on 20/Jul/11
This guy has a height complex wanting to be shorter, lol. I actually think he's 6' 4.5". He's massive. He slouches all the time, as well. Quite odd!

It's actually not that rare for very tall people to underbill themselves. Alan Napier was 6'6", and I believe he said 6'4". Christoper Lee said 6'4", while he was 6'5". A friend of my mother is at the very least 6'6", maybe even 6'7", and he claims 6'4.5". Mom didn't believe my height because of it!
Cranberries said on 1/Feb/12
AT LEAST a VERY solid 6'3.5". Also has an enormous head...
J.J. said on 1/Feb/12
Yes Rob why would he not reveal his true height?
Do you think he is 6'4.5" since Natasha looks around 6.5" shorter?
steven said on 19/Jan/12
he is bigger than most 6'5 claim actors. a real 6'4
Gerard said on 19/Dec/11
I chatted to Darius at the bar on a upper class Virgin Atlantic flight from LA recently. I'm 6.2 and he was easily 3inches taller than me shoes off! No way is he my height...he is 6.5 to 6.5 1/2 he does slouch and has issue with drumming down his true height. Darius is big bloke, easy weighs least 16st, 220lb about 100kg, he was accompanied by gorgeous Russian blond. Well done Darius!!
Shaun said on 26/Nov/11
Yeah more likely 194cm, maybe 6'5" out of bed.
LAN Jiao said on 25/Oct/11
Rob, maybe a upgrade for darius 6'4.5? This guy under play too much. Previous 6'2 claim was insane. He did't look any lower on 6'4.5 colin salmon you list him.
LAN Jiao said on 23/Sep/11
rob,
is time to upgrade Darius Danesh height here. his not a chance just 6ft4. probably he could be 6ft4.75 but more convince to be 6ft4.5 since 90% fans or non-fans is argue here. even i think he lie been 6ft3 flat. he look about 6ft6 a hair. if you compare Darius to mr.awesome i don think awesome is taller than Darius Danesh any chance since 6ft3.5 adam baldwin can listed here as 6ft4.
Shaun said on 4/Aug/11

Same here, seems to look on average about 5 inches taller than Gareth. Will Young 5'11", OK its possible. Gareth looks about an inch taller than Will in most pics so I'd put him at 6'. But assuming Will Young is 5'11", Gareth 6'0-6'0.5" then surely Darius can't be under 6'5?

My estimates would probably be:

Will Young - 5'10.5"
Gareth Gates -6'
Darius -6'4.5"
Shaun said on 4/Aug/11
Click Here

In this picture Darius looks 5-6 inches taller than Gareth!! Looks an easy 6'5" in comparison to Gates who isn't under 6'.
Shaun said on 4/Aug/11
Mmm in that picture Gareth does look about 2 inches taller than Will and Darius looks about 4 inches taller than Gareth. If Gareth Gates is 6'1" as listed then Darius has to be 6'5". Maybe Gareth 6'0.5" and Darius 6'4.5". I estimated Will Young at 5'10, 5'11" is pushing it I think.
Shaun said on 4/Aug/11
Click Here

If Will Young is 5'11", he does look at least 6'4". A cousin of mine has met Gareth Gates in London and said she was amazed that he was tall and said he was almost as tall as I was! I didn't believe her but I see he is listed at 6'1"!! Maybe he is 6' flat. Something is wrong though as Gareth looks quite a bit taller than Will and Darius again looks 4-5 inches taller than Gareth.
Shaun said on 1/Aug/11
Rob do you think its possible he ever hits 6'5" in morning?
[Editor Rob: yes it's very probable]
Shaun said on 1/Aug/11
6'5" morning height. I agree 6'4.5" would seem about right for him. He can look close to 6'6" in dress dress shoes.

This guy wears flip flops most of the time and slouches to look as short as possible. He's got a complex about it I think LOL but unlike Bieber, Stallone, Reynolds and Downey its the other way!! On Pop Idol he claimed to be 6'2" and both I am my sister were incredulous he could claim that and were like OHHH c,'mon you're almost a foot taller than Dec you've got to be close to 6'5"!!!

If you imagine David Haye barefoot without a cap and them standing level and Darius with better posture there is absolutely no way he is anything less than 2 inches taller Rob...

Rob, check this out. Haye 6'2.5" in big trainers ( at least an inch )= 6'3.5" and cap is still shorter than Darius in flip flops and loose posture. Can you please upgrade him to 194 or 195cm. He never looks under 194cm. Always looks more 6'4.5"-6'5" than 6'4 flat. I think this photograph is evidence he is a little taller than listed here.

6'5.5 (197cm) out of bed. Darius looks the same height as tim robbins to me.

he could very well be 6'4 1/2.

Darius was interviewed at the Noor Film Festival in LA last week and as usual, the interviewer asked how tall he was. This time he said 6 ft 4. The interview is among those at the opening of the festival and can be viewed on Click Here
Phoebe said on 2/Jan/07
" It's weird to see a star who lies about their height by making themself out to be shorter than they really are. He's way taller than 6'2''. "

It is strange indeed but Darius is not alone.

Justin Hayward has always claimed to be 6'1", sometimes 6'1.5", when anyone who has stood within eyesight of him or even seen pictures of him standing next to other "reportedly taller" celebrities can see he's at least 6'2", if not 6'3". I agree with AndyF's point about Darius and the comments he got on Popstars and Pop Idol. These things can play on your mind for a long time. Hayward grew to almost the height he is now when he was still in his early teens so was a lanky teenager and has not only lied about his height but doesn't stand up straight.

Emma Bunton may have been 5'1" when she started with the Spice Girls but she was still at an age where some people still have growing to do. There is no way she is still 5'1". I'm 5'1" and she is about 1.5"-2" taller than me.

Two, boyfriends were 6'2 in their socks.Have seen Darius from 3ft away -he's definitely taller, my guess 6'4 in socks.ie in shoes could be 6'6! Very fit too-did 3 laps of a rugby ground still singing and not breathless!
Mikex said on 13/Apr/06
On Des O'Connor once he was described as 6'5'' with size 13 shoes, USA size 14.
andyf said on 15/Mar/06
I reckon there is a reason for this, Mikex. When he was on Popstars and Pop Idol, he was discussed as being too tall for the type of performances that the judges were after. Look at Boy Bands--the ideal height for them seems to be about 5'9". You will never find anyone over 6'2" in a boy band.

My guess is that this registered with Darius at the time and unconciously or otherwise he tended to downplay his height. It is like a reverse effect of what short people do.

I really do think he is at least 6'4". At least--'cos I remember seeing Tony Hadley on telly saying that Darius was taller than him.

Now that Darius's career has developed into something more personal to him whereby he does not have to conform to any boy-band or pop-idol image, I think he will be more relaxed about his real height.

I saw a picture in a tabloid supplement the other week where Danesh was walking with Geri Halliwell. He looked 2 feet taller than her! I exaggerate, natch, but even given Geri's height, he still looked at least 6'4".

[Editor Rob: he's said 6ft 2 3/4, 6ft 3, 3.5, maybe once said 6ft 4, but he's a genuingely tall guy. Maybe doesn't like being 6ft4?]

Sorry him on awards show a few yrs. He looked gigantic. I think he's 6'4''plus.

The guy obviously thinks being a good 6’4’’ is bad thing. He really does look this height. When I see him on TV he really does look big.

Pictures from Terry and Gabby are on the link below.The 6 ft mark is at ear level and he's even slouching in the second pic -you can see his knee is bent.

Chris said on 24/Oct/05
He was measured on Terry and Gaby's show and he was 6ft 4. I've met him a few times. He often, almost automatically, tries to "shrink down" to reduce the gap between himself and someone he's with/speaking to.

i walked past him on the street, he is no more than 6.2 because i am 6.1 and he wasn't much taller than me.
HS said on 21/Jun/05
No one would round down from 6'4'' to 6'2.75''. 6'4'' is a good height, and in no way can be considered to tall. But he does look tall.
