Dombnall plays an excellent Alan A Milne in Goodbye Christopher Robin. It’s a perfectly delightful film, which depicts that the child, Christopher, did suffer as a result of being typecast.

I noticed how tall Dombnall was when he stood with the actresses Margot Robbie and Kelly McDonald. Alan Milne seemed quite a strict father and unpleasantly serious.

6'1" looks right.

It's strange. Brendan Gleeson is known for being rather portly. Yet his sons are skinny.

always look legit 6´1 could look just 1 inch under 189 cm adam driver in most photos. His claim is hones. I think he and his dad at peak was identical. 185,5-186

6'1. pretty tall. just goes to show you how tall 6'1 truly is. 6'1.5 is also possible.
David Tang said on 12/Jun/21
tall guy 6'1-6'.5 is believable.

Rob, how much do you think he weighs? He looks pretty thin specially in the film "About Time".

As for his height, he is the perfect example of a legit 6ft1 without no doubt.
Editor Rob
He could be 160, though I've not seen him in swimshorts 😄

Decent 6ft1 guy

How tall would his brother Brian be rob? Hes listed 5ft 11 but seeing the two of them together theres more of a height gap than 2 inches
Editor Rob
Could be nearer 5ft 10 than 11

Full 6ft1

Here he is by a Will Poulter who looks to be 6’2 1/8” nowadays:

I estimate that he’s about 6’0 7/8”, rather than the full 6’1”.

@ WiiU200

"186 is a better listing"

No its not, he is not over 6'1. If Anything he is slightly under it. Relax yourself.

Not a Full 6'1, But close.

CHristie has an inch more shoe than Gleason but has him by 3-1/2" , so Do the Math. CHristie is 6'3 ( TOPS) , SHe has Gleason by 2-1/2, putting him at a respectable 6'0.5"

Of cOurse People seem to think Christie is Taller than 6'3 but Rob's Picture with her disproves that theory. However Gleason, at 6'0.5" I feel is accurate.

Gleason has the least amount of FOotwear of the Cast members there, Benicio has Cowboy Boots and Gwen has a high shoe.

People realize of course this puts Benicio under 6 foot. Gwen Has nearly 4" on Benecio, and her sho advantage is not much more than his. She is 6'3, Gleason is 6'0-1/2", and Del Toro Now is 5'11.5.

He is over an inch shorter than Adam Driver. Close to two inches between them.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Jan/18
If Adam Driver is 189cm then you could argue 186cm for this guy...
grizz said on 3/Jan/18
6'1.25 absolute minimum for this height. Just a bit shorter than strong 6'2 Adam Driver and he made 5'4 Rachel McAdams look like a child.
Klapperschlangensindgeil21 said on 1/Jan/18
Yeah, he’s probably around 6’ 1 1/4.” He looked about 2” shorter than Gwendolyn’s Christie.
berta said on 25/Dec/17
i thinkhe can be little over 6 foot 1 flat. 186 seems about right
Magik said on 19/Dec/17
Full 6’1” next to Adam Driver and Gwendoline with hells. Click Here
Klapperschlangensindgeil21 said on 17/Nov/17
Weird, I thought General Hux, KylobRen, and Capatain Phasma were all the same height. It turns out Gwendoline Christie is the tallest, then Adam Driver and then Domhnall Gleeson.
Anonymous said on 15/Nov/17
Relatively narrow shoulders and a large head can make it look lower than it really is.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 25/Oct/17
He’s really a legit 6’1”.
Grit said on 23/Oct/17
186 but I'd even go as far saying 187
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Sep/17
He towers over Cruise in American Made. No reason to doubt 6ft1, in fact I thought he pulled off 186cm...
Alex said on 14/Sep/17
I'd say taller unless Brenda Gleeson and Bill Nighy have shrunk from peak height I'd say he's 6'2 as he's taller than both of them.
Mark(5'9.25 said on 27/May/17
I'd keep this guy at 6'1".
davey said on 26/Apr/17
looks 186 to me.
shiva181cms said on 10/Nov/16
Jes 6'.75 tall
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Nov/16
Can appear 186-187cm and as low as 184-185cm. Skinny guy with not the greatest posture.

Overall 6ft1 fits
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 25/Sep/16
This guy can give a similar impression to Mitchell.
TJE said on 17/Sep/16
He could be 6'0.75.
Mark said on 15/Sep/16
Would Luke Mitchell Edge out this guy for being a more solid 6'1", Rob?
Editor Rob
it is a distinct possibility he might measure the taller 6ft 1
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Jul/16
I think Domhnall edged out Nighy...
Truth said on 21/Jun/16
Star Wars, Ex Machina, the revenant. Nighy was still taller than gleeson.
Sam said on 27/May/16
If he was downgraded so would Adam Driver since I don't think they even looked an inch apart in TFA.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/16
Can look 186cm at times.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Mar/16
Super scrawny for a 6ft1 guy
Arch Stanton said on 15/Feb/16
Jay, you need your eyes tested, he looks nothing more than 2 cm shorter than Poulter! And compare his height to DiCaprio and Hardy, that's easily 6'1.
Arch Stanton said on 15/Feb/16
Can he look 184? I never see it myself, whenever I see him he looks a strong 6'1. Scroll down and see him inline with Idris Elba, they look comparable, though his posture is better than Gleeson's Click Here
Editor Rob
when he stands properly he does look 6ft 1 range, but at times I suppose anybody has potential to look less with looser posture.
Jay said on 1/Feb/16
Any chance of 6'0.5", Rob? I really can't see him as a full 6'1" next to Poulter.
Editor Rob
at times he can look 184, other times when standing tall I think passes for 6ft 1
MD said on 21/Jan/16
This really does seem too tall. Not the best angle (he actually may be slightly advantaged in the shot), but here he is directly next to 6'2" Will Poulter:

I'm seeing more than a one-inch difference. The listing may not be wildly off, but he's not a full 6'1".
BT said on 19/Jan/16
Looks in the 184 - weak 185 cm range most of the time. 6'0.5 or 6'0.75.
Andrew Henry said on 17/Jan/16
Hey Rob, can you add The Revenant to his list of credits?
Gamerdudesd78 said on 31/Dec/15
He is best known for playing as General Hux in Star Wars 7.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Sep/15
Solid 6ft1 guy, no less.
MD said on 16/Aug/15
Not knowing what kind of heels Gwendoline is wearing, you can still judge his height here with 6'2" Adam Driver:

Click Here

That is more than an inch difference.
Jordan said on 13/Aug/15

Harrison Ford at 5'11.5? No He is lucky to be 5'11 standing next to Proven 5'10 Billy Dee Williams ( See above Pic). Ford is hardly taller than that Solid 5'10 guy in williams.

Id Say Ford is 5'10.5 nowadays .Gleason is about 6'0 in their pics together.
Judd ISR said on 24/Jul/15
After seeing the picture with Ford I think there's noway he's 6'1"...
He could be 6'0"!
TJE said on 22/Jul/15

You sure that Harrison's shoe advantage is minimal?

Click Here

His shoes look at least an inch thick to me.
MD said on 20/Jul/15
With 5'11.25" (these days) Harrison Ford:

Ford's footwear:

Ford does have a footwear advantage being in gymshoes, but it's minimal. It's not as if Ford's in boots. So, Not only is 6'1" the most he could be, I'm not sure if he's a full 6'1". His thinness really adds to the impression of height.
A6'2Guy said on 15/Jul/15
In Ex-Machina he looked to be taller than 6'1", I pegged him as a 6'3" guy, it must be because of how skinny he is, it gave the illusion of more height.
Arch Stanton said on 17/Jun/15
With his dad Brendan Click Here , Click Here I think he's be a similar height to Prince Harry, both cool gingers too LOL!
Arch Stanton said on 17/Jun/15
Rob can you add a photo and add Ex-Machina? Honestly looks 187 in Ex Machina. Rob could you add least tweak to 186? I think he looks an easy 6'1, I doubt he's dip under it.
Editor Rob
He's down as 185 on Spotlight, I think he's around that mark.
cole said on 15/Mar/15
@Editor Rob: Isn't his name Domhnall, not Domnhall?
Editor Rob
I fixed that thanks!
Sam said on 5/Jan/15
Also, worth adding to his credits is the film Frank. Domnhall Gleeson looks a solid 6'1" guy, Fassbender can look closer to him in height due to his giant Frank head, haha.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jul/14
Looks very similar in height to Nighy, but Domn looked as if he had the edge actually.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jul/14
Rob, can you add About Time?
