I bought myself a new copy of ‘Exorcist: The Beginning’, in which David plays Father Gionetti. Being nice suits him! He says to Stellan Skarsgard’s character, “You’re a priest,” to which Stellan’s Lankaster Merrin (Skarsgard) replies, “I was.” Then Father Gionetti replies, “You’ll always be a priest. It’s the only thing that can save you now.”

As the film progresses, you see the War atrocities Father Merrin endured which caused him to lose his faith. They’re unspeakable, and he has nightmares about them constantly.

David Bradley is one terrific actor, and has starred in so many great movies and TV programmes. He will tackle comedy and the extremely serious, of which this is a prime example.

The film was made in the first half of the first decade of this century, around 2004, and David still looks 5ft11, and a strong one to boot!

David is on TV tonight - in ‘Exorcist - The Beginning’ with the super-tall Stellan Skarsgard. It’s on the Legend channel at 9 o’clock, and well worth seeing.

5ft11 peak and 5ft10 now. 😁

Hey rob how tall is he now?
Editor Rob

I’m watching, though not attentively, a film called ‘Await Further Instructions” in which David plays the grandfather of Nick. who goes round to his parents’ house for the Christmas vacation with his girlfriend.

Soon they find out that there’s a deadly virus going round. and although their presence after a couple or three years has triggered arguments with his sister, and the couple wish to leave, they find out via the TV that there’s a deadly virus going round and everybody has to stay put. David’s grandfather is one of those grumpy old gits who enjoys people to be at loggerheads with one another, causing as much friction as he can.

It doesn’t pay off though because he dies a nasty death. It happens very suddenly and is the only time you get to see him leave his armchair. Not the best film from which to judge his height!

I’ve seen enough of his movies to know that he was a strong 5ft11 in his younger years, so I’m going with 5ft11.25 for his peak height and 5ft10 for today. especially as the picture is 10 years old this year.

‘Await Further Instructions’ was made in 2018 and it’s a truly creepy coincidence that the pandemic was created a year later. I didn’t see the film to an end, but from what I did see, the symptoms of the virus were nearer to that of ‘The Stand’ than Covid 19. I mean, even their food was contaminated. Hellish stuff indeed and a film I definitely WON’T be buying!

Ah! I've just seen that I've already been on David's page to sound off about his starring in the excellent and hard hitting film 'Harry Brown'. Well, I'm watching it right now, and the local hooligans have just tried to burn him to death in his own home. He goes out and curses at them over the balcony - and who can blame him?

I remember only too well what happens next. His mate, ex-Marine Michael Caine, or Harry Brown, towers over him, so I'm off to Michael's page now.

As I said, this is a hard film to watch, with open drug-dealing and far, far worse. These youngsters are so evil that any mind altering substances make them even worse.

Today - 5ft10.5
Yesteryear - 5ft11.5

SUCH a good actor! Did anyone see him with Michael Caine in the film 'Harry Brown'?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 13/May/19
If I could take that back, I'd give David 5ft10.25 for today's height!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 13/May/19
I saw David pop up with Stellan Skarsgard in 'Exorcist The Beginning' the other day, playing a man of the cloth. The part rather suited him!

5ft11 for his peak and an inch less today.
Dmeyer said on 5/May/19
Exactly 5'10 in both pics
Nik said on 11/Nov/18
David Bradley is a strong 5'10"!
Sacred said on 10/Nov/18
5 feet 11
Editor Rob
I seen him a few times over last few years and he's not over 5ft 10 today.
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Sep/18
David was also in the film 'Harry' Brown', playing the best friend of Michael Caine. He meets with an unfortunate end, and Caine's Harry Brown decides to take the law into his own hands. It's an excellent watch and also stars Sean Harris as an unsavoury character.

David still looked quite burly in that film. I'd go for 5ft11 peak and 5ft10.25 now.

Looks rather 177 than 178.

Yeah, Rob, I most associate him with his roles as Abraham Setrakian in The Strand and as Lord Walder Frey in Game of Thrones, could you add those to the first sentence?
Sam said on 27/Jul/15
I actually forgot how he looked near Rob but had started watching The Strain and he can look surprisingly tallish/lanky at times, I don't doubt he could have stood around 5'11", although is now in his early 70s so probably is a bit less recently.
Judd said on 21/Jan/15
1" at 72 years is likely! The listing is fair!
Anon183 said on 20/Jan/14
Honestly thought this guy was 6ft, I always got quite a tall impression from him. Surprising. My proportions are similar to his so perhaps that is why I get mistaken for being taller than I am too.
Emily said on 12/Jan/14
Would you consider his head small Rob? I remember that close to 6ft4 height challenger guy with a bit over 9 inch head, and you said you didn't consider his head small. Yet he's like almost 6 inches taller than Bradley, and has just a little bigger head.
Editor Rob
I'd say David's was a bit smaller than average.
avi said on 3/Jan/14
Actually he looks 5'10 flat but Rob why does he look 5'9 area with Matt Smith ?
Is it possible Smith had boots on in that picture Emily posted?
Editor Rob
to me smith looks 5ft 11.5 and bradley 5ft 10 in person...
Emily said on 26/Dec/13
So Matt's head is nearing 10 inch length? I didn't think it looked so big. But he has a rather thin head like Cumberbatch, so that can take off the length visually.
Emily said on 24/Dec/13
You sure his head is below 9 inches? Matt Smith's head is about the same length as yours Rob (9,5 inches), but in this pic Click Here
it doesn't look about half an inch (or more) longer than Bradley's.
Editor Rob
it looks near an inch smaller in that photo than Matt's, I think David has a head a fraction shy of 9 inch.
avi said on 13/Dec/13
Solid 5'10 maybe 5'10.5 peak 5'10.2 now.
Connor 184cm said on 9/Dec/13
He actually looks close to 179cm, i can believe 5ft 11 at peak, correct me if im wrong but didnt he gave a shorter impression in the Harry Potter films because he was slouching?
raptordalek said on 11/Oct/13
Saw a tv series with him and daniel craig walking side by side filmed in the 90's, craig was about a half an inch smaller so that makes craig 5'9
Yaspaa said on 27/Aug/13

His role as Lord Walder Frey on Game of Thrones has brought this guy much notoriety Rob!

5'10" I can see, no taller though.
Josh B said on 5/Dec/12
Expect his small head fools some people, like Andrew Robinson. Would you say they are the same height Rob?
Editor Rob
