Had a really gangly look for just 6 ft 2, had very long arms and the long face and look of a 6 ft 4-5 guy. Could look 6'2.5 at times. Had the look of a believable serial killer in the 70s! Look how creepy he looked here in the top photo! Click Here

Definitely a tall 6ft 2 in THE THIRTY NINE STEPS.
Sandy Cowell said on 29/Sep/22
Thank you so much, Rob, for adding the two films, ‘The Omen’ and ‘Straw Dogs’ to David’s credits.

I don’t recall ‘Time After Time’, but I will look out for it.
Sandy Cowell said on 27/Sep/22
David starred in ‘The Omen’ and the original ‘Straw Dogs’. Both excellent films, perhaps they could be added to his credits, Rob? 🙏 (Pleeeeaaaase!)
Editor Rob
Yes, they were good roles, also I remember him in Time after Time, which I enjoyed.
Sandy Cowell said on 27/Sep/22
I think David deserves to be added to the Classic Actors’ Page. It would make a lovely tribute to him.
Sandy Cowell said on 27/Sep/22
David passed on just 5 days short of his 81st Birthday. Sadly, he had cancer. 🥲

RIP David Hattersley Warner XXXXX
29th July, 1941 - 24th July, 2022 🕯💐

6ft2.25 peak height.
Sandy Cowell said on 26/Sep/22
I saw David in ‘Nightwing’ on Friday night, one of the films introduced by Caroline Munro. I thought he had a wonderful speaking voice and went along to his page to find out that he passed on this Summer. So very upset to hear that…..

I’ll be back later with a proper tribute.

Rip david warner. The man was a true professional and i always enjoyed him in his performances. A 6'2 man for years, even seemed 3-4 inches over leo in Titanic!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jul/22
Sad news...terrific actor. Always made his presence known.

Can see an argument for 6ft2-2¼ range in his prime
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 1/Feb/22
I saw his fantastic performance in 'The Omen' over the weekend. What a contrast to the character he played in 'Straw Dogs'!

Peak 6ft2.25; today 6ft1.
Richie said on 26/Oct/21
Peak height 6'2", Gregory Peck edged him slightly in The Omen.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jun/21
Tron is a good movie to gauge...I don't think they appear together but both look roughly the same opposite Jeff
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 26/Jun/21
Rob between Boxleitner and Warner peak who do you think was taller?

In Tron both guys looked to edge Bridges by almost an inch...I think a fraction over for both is arguable to be honest. I reckon in person Bruce probably looked taller though
Editor Rob
maybe with Bruce there was a chance of a bit over 6ft 2 peak, with Warner again, the odds of weak 6ft 2 are probably less than a solid one in his 30's
Chaos Control 6'2.5 said on 28/Feb/21
Jenny is also a dealer at events

Wait WHAT?
Editor Rob
not that kind of dealer 😄
Ian C. said on 26/Feb/21
I deduce from this photo, Rob, that you are an unusually polite and accommodating man, because you didn't say to Warner, stand up straight, this is a photo to gauge your height.
Editor Rob
funnily, not about David but another actor...

at a small event in Glasgow a fellow con goer (a few inches shorter than myself) had got a photo with Robert nairne at his autograph table. He was also getting a 'professional' photo with Nairne too, because as he said to me in the queue he didn't like the fact Robert didn't stand tall and leant into him...

So this chap who went before me asked Nairne to stand taller for the pro shot, which took Nairne a bit by surprise...

I'm not really going to do that, or haven't asked any celebrity who might be seated to stand for over 10 years now...since Jenny is also a dealer at events and me being Banned would effect her, I don't want to rock the apple cart.
Hulk.23 said on 30/Oct/20
I think 6’2/188cm for his peak height is fair. I do not think he has lost much height so between 6’0.5-1” for his current height is fair.
In Titanic (1997) he looked visibly taller than Billy Zane And DiCaprio so I guess he was in the 187cm area considering he was 55 yo or maybe even in his peak range height.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 25/Aug/20
In Necronomicon David looks it on his 6'2 claim i wouldn't doubt under it. 6'1 now is believable.
Nik said on 29/Apr/20
@ Sandy Cowell - That is an amazing coincidence, really amazing! Tonight I had just replied to you on Tara Thompson and while I was on her page I looked down and saw that Scottie Thompson had popped up as a random celeb, I then commented on her!

David is a convincing member of the 6 foot 1 club and I am delighted to give him his 70th comment!
Jkiller said on 28/Feb/20
Honestly never saw a full 6'2 peak, maybe 187cm. Nowadays around 6'1.
Caldonio said on 31/Dec/19
Looked 6-2 peak definitely
Nik Ashton said on 21/Dec/19
6’1” minimum!
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 29/Jul/19
🎂🎁🕯️ Happy 78th Birthday David! 🕯️🎁🎂

Here's wishing David Warner a terrific Birthday today. I see he is still busily acting away, which is great!

6ft2.5 peak;
6ft1 today.
Richie said on 25/Jun/19
David Warner's peak height was 6'2", he was an inch shorter than Gregory Peck in The Omen, who's peak height was 6'3".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jan/19
Berta, I think a fraction over it peak is more likely than under. He was taller than Jeff Bridges in Tron
berta said on 3/Jan/19
did look legit 187 in titnic, zane legit legit 184, maybe 184,5 and dicaprio 181-181,5. I belive he culd have been 188 peak but maybe a small fraction under it rather than over
Sandy Cowell said on 2/Jul/18
I don't believe it! David has just been playing an ailing man in the star-studded episode of 'Marple' that's on my telly right now, but lying in bed, so without the opportunity to see his height. How ironic that I should look down on my phone and see him pop up as a random Celeb!

This time round, on my third visit to his page, I shall settle with 6ft2.75 for his peak height and 6ft1 for today's height.

He was one of my first comment victims, back in October 2016!
Tall Sam said on 19/Mar/18
I think Peck still actually edged Warner by a smidge in The Omen but not by a lot and the camerawork probably favored Peck there.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Mar/18
Looked similar to Gregory Peck in The Omen but I think it's possible that Peck might have lost a little bit by then
jabberwocky said on 15/Mar/18
If he's lost any height it might be because he smashed both feet in 1970 and it affects how he walks. In Time After Time he had to use a stand in for his running scenes. In Straw Dogs he walked with a stick because he was still recovering. The character wasn't originally meant to be disabled. I'd say he's still 6'2". In fat sometimes he looks even taller because he's so thin and most of it is leg.
Lucas said on 12/Mar/18
I think in Titanic(1997) he was still an"almost 6ft2". He edged out both DiCaprio and Zane so taller than a flat 6ft1...
travis said on 20/Jan/18
he loss 1cm/1inch not bad
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Dec/17
He still looked 6ft2 in Titanic, a bit it taller than Billy Zane.

In his prime I think he looked a bit over it...
Redwing said on 19/Jul/17
How tall was he in titanic?
Editor Rob
he still seemed over 6ft 1 then.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jul/17
He's probably about the same height as Billy Zane today but not under 6ft2 peak. Edged out Jeff Bridges in the original Tron
Sandy Cowell said on 14/Jun/17
I have just seen written down in an internet article that David Warner's height was 188cm, not now of course but at the start of his career.
I first saw David in 'The Omen' and he's been popping up in all sorts of film and TV work ever since! He had a part in the excellent horror film 'In the Mouth of Madness', and he was even in the TV film about Sweeney Todd, with Ray Winstone playing the title character!
I feel that the above picture doesn't exactly show off his height at all well. He's stooping, and looks little taller than Rob. I think he is still over 6ft in fact, so I will put 6ft and a quarter of an inch for today's height and 6ft2 for his peak.
Shredder said on 14/Jun/17
He looked huge in TMNT 2
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jun/17
Warner was likely still 188cm in Titanic. Zane is 184/185cm.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 12/Jun/17
He was listed 187cm on his agency, so he likely wasn't 188 peak.
World Citizen said on 12/Jun/17
"This photo is to put a name to face because he bent down a few inches at his knees for this shot!

I'm sorry Rob, I forgot to read this part :)
World Citizen said on 11/Jun/17
Why he looks only 5 ft 9 1/4 here?
Editor Rob
yeah he dropped a lot of height, sometimes it can happen, there's a few photos since then I didn't put up as either the actor dropped too much or went on tip toes or I fluffed my posture too much.
travis said on 17/Apr/17
he made Leonardo DiCaprio look small
berta said on 17/Apr/17
in titanic i think it looks like this:
dicaprio 181,5
Billyzane 184,5
david warner 187,5 and peak 188. His body in titanic looked like he was just in the begining of losing height. COuldalso still have been 188 in titanic i think he looked about 3-3,5 cm taller than zane
Richie said on 17/Apr/17
6'2", he was slightly shorter than Gregory Peck in The Omen
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Feb/17
Looked at least 6ft2 peak, possibly was 6ft2¼
Sandy Cowell said on 14/Oct/16
I would have expected his height to be at least 6ft3 because of his gangly appearance. He looked enormous in the original 'Straw Dogs' and he didn't look awkward playing next to the super-tall Gregory Peck in the original 'Omen' production, that is until his head came off!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Sep/16
I think Bruce Boxeleitner may have had the edge in Tron. Beside Bridges he gave a slightly taller impression
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Aug/16
Maybe 184cm today Rob?
Editor Rob
not seen him a few years now, but it is highly likely he is heading towards that range.
richie said on 16/Apr/16
Yes that's accurate, Warner was definitely 6'2" during the 70's, he was slightly shorter then Gregory Peck who was 6'3"
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Mar/16
6ft2 flat is fine for his peak. I think Bruce Boxleitner (6ft2¼ peak) gave a slightly taller impression beside Bridges in Tron...
TNT said on 19/Aug/15
One of my favorite actors in movies and TV. Had such a 'presence' when he was on screen. Great voice as well. Can't think of a single performance where he didn't shine.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Aug/15
Rob, could 185cm be closer now?

He's 74
Editor Rob
yes...he can look 6ft - 6ft 1 range walking about.
Judd said on 2/Feb/15
I doubt it, Zane is a tall guy but I don't think he can be a legit 185 cms man!
I think is likelier 6'0.25" than 6'0.75" for him, also if 6'0.5" is my first choice!
Agree about the fact Warner had 1-1.25" on him in Titanic, so was a legit 187 cms man!
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 31/Dec/14
He's a tall actor, that's for sure. Legit 1.88 m guy in 'the Omen' with Peck.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/14
Well, Zane could be 6ft0¾. Warner was easily 1in taller so he was probably still 6ft2 in 1997. Still near it when he stands tall.
Judd said on 28/Oct/14
in titanic he had 1-1,25" on Billy Zane, who's a decent 6'0.5" so 6'1.5-75" in 1997 was likely. you need to bear in mind that he was 56 when he portrayed lovejoy in titanic, so he probably lost a fraction from his prime full height.
6'2" as peak height is legitimate. don't know about him today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Oct/14
Rob, maybe 6ft1 flat today?

Looking at Tron, he has Bridges by at least 1in
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Sep/14
"Peak height was 6ft 2.5in (189cm)"
Josh b said on 1/Mar/14
Looked this when I saw him at Cardiff film and comic con.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/14
Rob, are you convinced that he's still 6ft1-6ft2 now?
Editor Rob
he can look nearer 6ft but he's not got he best posture when just wandering about an event.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Nov/13
In Titanic
Leonardo DiCaprio - 5ft11.25/181cm
Billy Zane - 6ft0.75/185cm
David Warner - 6ft2.25/189cm
Patrick said on 9/Nov/13
He was exactly as tall as John Glover in 1994 "In the mouth of madness". Check it out. Either Glover is way taller than listed here or Warner is shorter. I always considered Warner as a tall man and never doubted he was 6'2ish anyway.
Editor Rob
glover has a peak listing of 6ft 2 - he's lost a couple of inches in height
Arch Stanton said on 14/Oct/13
Really looks 6'2" range next to Leo and Billy Zane in Titanic.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Sep/13
"Peak height was 6ft 2.5in (189cm)"

Warner looked 6ft2-3 in Tron with Jeff Bridges (close to 6ft2 then)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/12
Spot on Jake
maio said on 4/Jan/12
6 ft 1.5 in/187 cm (PEAK)
6 ft 0.5 in/184 cm (TODAY)
jake, 1.82 m- 1.83 m said on 20/Nov/11
Strong 6ft 2 in early films- 1.88 m/1.89 m range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Sep/11
He would've been in his 50s when Titanic was made, so if he was 189cm then, there's a good he could have been almost 6"3 in his youth?
James said on 28/Jul/11
today still at least 6'1 barefoot. In Titanic next too Billy Zane could potentially be 6'1 I think David looked 1.5 inches taller which might indicate that he was still around 189cm in 1997. then again he might have not been over 188cm in titanic?
jake said on 19/Jul/11
Could've been as high as 189 cm at peak, now 6ft1.5 or so.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Jul/11
He may only be 185cm now
Editor Rob
I saw him a few months ago and can still look 6ft 1 range.
James said on 2/Jul/11
188-189cm range in Titanic.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jun/11
I think 6ft2-6ft2.5 peak
Sam said on 29/Apr/11
Yeah, in his films from the 70s, you can see David was probably over 6'2". He looks quite tall in almost all of his films. Compared to 6'3"-peak (don't think he shrunk much) Gregory Peck in The Omen, he looks close in height (just a bit shorter).
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/11
Rob do you think David is still 187cm?

Editor Rob
I've not seen him for a couple years but last time he was still in that range I felt.
Mr.V said on 23/Feb/11
In this 1967 article about Diana Rigg , David gets described as 6'3 :

Click Here

The article also gives Patrick Macnee's height as 6'1 , which is probably generous . But in David's case I believe it's probably closer to the truth . In "Morgan" you can see that he's quite a bit taller than Vanessa Redgrave when they're both barefoot . I would say he was 6'2.5 minimum in his youth .
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jan/11
6"2.25(189cm) peak
6"1.5(187cm) today
James said on 29/Nov/10
well maybe in 6'2.5 in his 30's.
linke said on 21/Nov/10
For a second, i thought it was david warner the cricketer.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Nov/10
If he's 187cm now..He could very well have been a bit more than 6"2 when he was younger. Infact I think he could still be 187-188cm
James said on 7/Nov/10
I doubt he was taller than 6'2 when you look at him with 182-183cm Steve Martin.
Hugh 190cm said on 10/Jun/09
Up straight he's probably close to 6ft2. I'd say 6ft2.25 peak Rob.
_-_-_-Hugh-_-_-_/ said on 5/Mar/09
Maybe a little over 6ft2 in his prime and say 6ft1.75 now.
misha said on 19/Mar/07
I have argued that the "slouch" stance doesn't take away as much height as one
might thik, but in David Warner's case, his posture is so egregiously awful that he must be losing a solid inch minimum - and it's always been bad - see
"Straw Dogs" (1971) This is a very tall man, unquestionably a legitimate 6'3" in his early days, perhaps a bit over 6'2" now if he were to ever straighten
himself up fully. "Time After Time" (1982) shows the kind of menace he can project throughout a film.
Elio said on 7/Jan/07
My Dad saw him on the London underground the other week and said he looked very tall. My dad's 5'9.5" and estimated Warner was 'about 6'4"', which is obviously an exaggeration. But I think he probably is the full 6'2", and maybe was wearing decent heeled footwear to appear so tall.
larry said on 24/Mar/06
He looks the same height as Bruce Boxlitner (sp?) in Tron and 1" taller than 6'1" Jeff Bridges. I think he's still a solid 6'2" tall.
