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

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.

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".
