I think that the height of Denis is the same case as Christoph Waltz, who once said 5'8" and then 170 cm which looks a bit modest. Rob, look here at Denis next to Tina Hobley in 2005 and pay attention to her heels:
In addition, in 2005 Denis looked the same height as Peter Mullan: Click Here Click Here Click Here
In 2000, Denis looked 1.5 inches taller than Keith Allen, and he really didn't look as short as the flat 5'7" next to Michael Barrymore: Click Here Click Here
Like Christoph Waltz, Denis also could look like 5'7.5" but I generally think that a fraction of over 5'7" as his peak height can be okay. Rob, will you give him an upgrade at least until 5'7.25"?
I'm not sure if I've seen enough of him to say 7.25 is likelier - there is a chance though, he might have shrunk 2cm by the time I seen him, though sometimes people can get to 60's with barely anything, others succumb to 1-3cm losses.

He's listed in most places as 5ft 8in but I've never thought he is that height. So many actors are listed as that height when they are clearly shorter.

@World Citizen right? another 1/4 inch advantage when he is clearly shorter... I think its because Rob tries to be generous as much as possible so that he won't get hated on...

How long is his head?
Editor Rob: possibly just under 9 inches

Rob how do you think he'd be in a staredown with G today? Judging from the pic it looks like he's just below your hairline which is 169 range... although I know he's probably lost some height... I'm just wondering who looked taller in person Denis or Big G?
[Editor Rob: both similar range, maybe 169 range is possible today for him, I think he definitely looked in the similar 169-170 zone that G appears in.]

Generally 5 ft 8 seems a stretch but he could look it in Local Hero. Now, nearer 5'6.5.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Feb/15
Peak he could look 5 ft 8.
Bishop said on 17/Dec/14

You may or may not know that Denis Lawson is the uncle of Ewan McGregor who of course was in the second Star Wars Trilogy.

Maybe 5'8" peak, Rob?
[Editor Rob: not sure how much he would lose, but a big inch I would be surprised...he is aged 61 in this picture and in person I'd have put him a weak 5ft 7er, so 5ft 7-7.5 range peak is possible.]

I think he looks closer to 5'6" than 5'7" here.
Robby D said on 27/Apr/13
He looks more than an inch shorter than Rob in that photo. If Rob is 5'8" I would say Denis is more like 5'6".
