Jake, I'm not sure about the full 6ft2...
Jake: 1.84 m - 1.85 m said on 30/Mar/23
Looks 6ft 2 or close a lot of the time.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jun/22
Rob, how likely is 6ft2 out of bed?
Editor Rob
Would be quite likely
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Oct/21
Eric at a strong 6ft1 and Lucas at a weak 6ft1 fits
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Mar/21
Eric can look over 6ft1, this mark is fine for him...
Eric Tam said on 20/Jan/21
Lol at the fact both Eric and Lucas are listed as 6'2. One can buy a strong 6'1 to a weak 6'2 for Eric but Lucas is barely (if not not even) 6'1

Ivan Sergei had a big two inch on Eric.
Jam Cherry said on 27/May/20
I would say he’s 187 cm guy
Nik said on 28/Jan/20
He's leaning big time!
Visitor said on 26/Oct/19
This is an excellent example of 6 ft ONE range (both of these guys). This is very close to for example Thomas F Wilson, but over there people are arguing even 6 ft THREE.

It's mentioned below he's wearing boots so I'd actually go closer to 6'1 flat. But doesn't matter, you could take 1 cm off his shoes and he would still look comfortably tall.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Oct/19
Rob, is Bryant really an inch shorter than Balfour?

They look pretty close in this photo
Editor Rob
Yes in person Bryant was shorter than Eric, who was shorter than Adam Copeland (who had converse on that day and both these guys a boot).

Hence why I think Adam somehow lost height in the next few years as he looked taller that day than the photo I eventually got.
Nik said on 17/Aug/19
I would love to see a picture of him with his sister Tori!
Nik Ashton said on 16/Aug/19
@ Rob - How tall is his wife Erin Chiamulon?

It will be interesting to find out how tall Eric and Erin’s son Oliver Lion Balfour ends up being!
Editor Rob
She might be 5ft7 ish
K.A 188 said on 20/Jul/19
He has a very long face and nice proportion so that does the trick....
I would have sworn that he was atleast 6ft3 but this proves again that in hollywood camera angles do help in looking taller.
Importer said on 16/Jun/19
Same. To me pretty much every male actor looked taller than what they actually were. Idk why, perhaps it had something to do with the way they filmed the scenes. Low camera height for one.
Nik Ashton said on 5/Mar/19
He is losing plentiful height!
Peter 180cm said on 9/Jan/19
Doesn't look anywhere close to 187cm.Unless he's leaning big-time he's no taller than 184-185 range.
Bobby said on 23/Oct/18
And... I just realized I commented on the other guy's height before, well, that's awkward.
Editor Rob
Both shorter than Adam Copeland that day.
Bobby said on 23/Oct/18
How tall is the other guy? Same height, or is he closer to 6'2?
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/Sep/18
@Mickie In Haven he look at least 3/4 taller. Eric to me always look 6'1 1/4.
Mickie said on 11/Jul/18
He doesn't look really any taller than Lucas Bryant.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Dec/17
186/187cm zone...did think he looked 188cm when watching 24 though

Bryant looks around 1in shorter
Bobby said on 10/Nov/17
How tall is the other guy? 6ft?
Editor Rob
in person seems a big 6 foot, more nearer 184.
berta said on 18/Oct/17
i think he can be closer to 186 than 187 maybe not 186 flat but close to it 186,3 in the late afternoon is very likely for this guy
Junior said on 18/Aug/17
In Haven he look 6'1.5-6'1.75".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jul/17
I still can't see him at a flat 6ft1 though
Canson said on 17/Jun/17
I agree with your Rampage as well strong 6'1.
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 17/Jun/17
Agree with Rampage, he looks 186cm.
Peterson188cm said on 12/Mar/17
Eric: 186cm
Rob: 173cm
Lucas: 184.5cm
berta said on 29/Jan/17
186-187 range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/16
I saw an episode of Haven and he does look at least 1in taller than the dude on the right. This mark is still reasonable.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Mar/16
"Eric Balfour's height is 6ft 1¼in (186.055cm)"

Used to think he was much taller but probably his lankyness gave that illusion. Not under 6ft1 though. Similar to Roger Cross...
Editor Rob
depends on his boot, if I knew it was similar to a cat or was 1.3-4 zone I'd say 186 for sure, but not as sure.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 7/Jan/16
186cm could be closer but no less.
a said on 14/Dec/15
c man i did see 187 maybe 182 :)
Andrea said on 12/Dec/15
Then i'll stick with 6'1 :)
Of course, i meant that there are NOT many ideal scenes where you can do good comparisons with Milo in 24 in the previous post...
If he looked similar to Roger, why not give Eric the same height? 6'1-6'1.5 means 6'1.25 would be a good listing, don't you agree?
Both of them looked similar to the 186 challenger guy in person?
Editor Rob
he cleared 6ft 1, but then his boot was a bit more than my sneaker so around 1.25 isn't impossible.
Andrea said on 11/Dec/15
If I'm not wrong he was listed at 6'1.75-6'2 before you met him? I'd definitely rule it out, though! As i said, on 24 he can look near 6'1. Over it? I'm not so sure but if you guarantee he'd 100% clear the 6'1 mark, I can believe it... A guy like Roger Cross, who is 185-186, actually gave me a taller impression next to the other actors but again there are many ideal scenes where you compare this guy with the others. Rampage says 6'3-6'4... I wonder what actor or show he has seen :)
Editor Rob
6ft 1 is possible, 6ft 2 is too much though. Cross looks kinda similar in person, that 6ft 1-1.5 zone when standing tall.
Andrea said on 11/Dec/15
He actually wouldn't have guessed him over 6'1 from watching 24! Rob, are you sure he would clear the 6'1 mark by half an inch? To me, it seems a bit optimistic... Of course he looks nowhere near it with you but it's hard to tell because he probably isn't standing at his tallest here!
6'0.5-6'1 is what i thought in 24, he doesn't look much over 2 inches taller than a guy like James Morrison! Is he taller than a Roger Cross in person?
Editor Rob
he did have a kind of cat style boot this day, but looked taller than 6ft 1 flat I thought.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Oct/15
Watching 24 I thought was like 6ft3-4!
blue said on 31/May/15
He was much taller than nicholas brendon when he played Jesse in the first episode of Buffy.
His only episode; what a shame, jesse was very cool, Jenny remember him?:)
Its unfair, he was on the point to having Cordelia!!!:))

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 1/Mar/15
Rob why isn't Lucas Bryant listed here?
Editor Rob
I had thought he was, but he does Now have a page.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Oct/14
Hold on, if the guy on the right is approximately 185cm, then Balfour should be 187-188cm range
Kostas said on 25/Aug/14
How tall is the other guy Rob? He gives a 6'1" impression(standing better)
Editor Rob
balfour looked near an inch taller than Lucas Bryant, and Balfour standing with 'The Edge' that day, the Edge looked near 6ft 3 with both of them.

@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover says on 21/Jan/14
Actually 186-187cm is closer for this dude.
Saw 24 and he towers Kiefer Sutherlanf...

How do you figure? Not even close to "towering"
Alex 6'0 said on 30/Apr/14
6'1-6'1.25 standing straight

Lenad said on 19/Dec/13
187cm is the very most I can accept for him standing straight
AirFirceMike said on 17/Dec/13
Lucas Bryant is in this photo... NOT on this website. (Listed at 6'2" on another site.)
5ft10 guy said on 15/Oct/13
6ft1 not 6ft1.5
Matt 184.7-186.7cm said on 10/Oct/13
If standing straight probably around 6ft 1 or tiny bit over
Kyuss said on 20/Sep/13
not seeing 6-1,5...more 6ft imo
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 31/Jul/13
Looks 185-186cm max.
5ft10guy(Not GrowingAnymore) said on 7/Mar/13
I see 6ft flat.
tony t. said on 5/Oct/12
Rob could you make a page for former wwe wrestler Edge (Adam Copeland)? He looks maybe an inch taller than Eric Balfour on haven.
tony t. said on 5/Oct/12
Wow was I off. I honestly thought this guy was like 6'3 or 6'4, or something. Just like I thought the chick from the same show was like 5'6, but she is 5'9.
koss said on 4/Sep/12
He's actually around 5'11", I met him at a park during his filming of Lie With Me (didn't know about the movie until later) and we talked for a while before shooting began again. We were the exact same height.
RealityKing said on 15/Sep/11
Viper bro, hr ya.. he has to be atleast 6.1, for me he looks somewhere inbetween 6.1 and 6.2.
JB said on 8/Jun/11
He looks like he's around 6' 3 1/2" or even 6' 5" to me. His heavy build and his masculine jawline probably make him much taller. It just comes to show you how tall 6' 1" - 6' 2" is. :D
® said on 6/Jun/11
Viper maybe you need to look ones height closely.6'1
Viper said on 5/Jun/11
LOL, this dude looked no taller than 5-10 compared to 5-8 Katie Holmes.
Chris said on 13/Nov/10
It's his long face! :P
some guy said on 23/Jun/09
He looks a bit taller than Michael Madsen who is supposedly 6'2", in HELL RIDE
dmeyer said on 22/May/09

Rob - I'm with you - I think the average decent episode of CSI or Lost, or Seinfeld in its prime, etc., is BETTER than most of the junk you see at the movies...
I agree,except CSI(because I don't watch)
Anonymous said on 10/Mar/09
Met him at the W in Honolulu when he was filming "Hawaii," which was cancelled after a few episodes. We thought he looked huge in 6 feet under, but were shocked how short he was in person. I'm 6'3", and towered over him. He might have been an inch taller than my 5'9" wife. It made me believe everyone is tiny in Hollywood. Nice guy, though.
A J... said on 11/Jan/09
Eric Balfour is 6'0.5". I worked and episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent. His stand-in was 6'2" and was 1.5" taller. Because he is quite slim he looks very tall. Also, the 24 comparison is tough, as Kiefer Sutherland is just over 5'8". That gives Eric Balfour a towering appearance.

aw I'm genuinely sorry, I should have inserted a spoiler warning! So sorry!
TheJerk said on 8/May/07
I think Rob's a fan of 24 :)

Editor Rob
I watch tv series because a lot of the time they are as good as the stuff hollywood churns out to the cinemas. 24 (not so much this season though), galactica, heroes, lost at the moment are probably in my top 4, but I cannot watch shows with ad breaks, usually its dvd's or super fast forward ad breaks!

Vast majority of genre shows in the last 15 years I've watched at least half a season of.
antron said on 8/May/07
does indeed stand tall among the more average height actors on 24. 6'2"ish definitely looks right
