How tall was Donald Sinden

Donald Sinden's Height

5ft 11 (180.3 cm)

British actor, best remembered for films such as The Cruel Sea, Mogambo, The Day of the Jackal and Above Us The Waves. In a 1948 Casting directory, he listed himself as "Height: 5 feet 11 inches", however in his book - Laughter in the second act - he said "By measuring the inside of Henry's armour which stands in the Tower of London, we know that he was six foot three inches tall. Very few actors are that tall. (I am six foot.)".

Donald didn’t fair well at all.

He was killed. ☺️

The episode is called Shot At Dawn, and is quite maddening.

Donald is starring with Brian Capron in the Midsomer Murders episode entitled Shot At Dawn.

I think he’s going to be rather nicer than Brian, who is an ill mannered buffoon!

He was a handsome fellow, to be sure!

I remember Donald Sinden just as much, maybe even more, for his TV work, which included one of my Mum's favourites, 'Doctor in the House', and its sequel series.

Donald, who passed away at 90 after a long fight with that cruel illness, prostate cancer, had two sons. Their names were Jeremy and Marc, both actors, and Jeremy starred in 'As Time Goes By', among other things.

If what I read is correct, Jeremy stood a mammoth 6ft7. The actor lived for a tragically short 45 years, dying of cancer like his Dad. Younger brother Marcus is now 66 years of age and continues with his acting career. Jeremy left behind two daughters and Marc has two children also: one of each.

The late and very successful actor of both TV and theatre, Donald Sinden, gets 5ft11.

RIP Donald Sinden XX 🕯️
