Rob, in Robby's pic below, how much taller is he than her not counting hair?
[Editor Rob: possibly close to 2cm.]
Just said on 26/Oct/14
In the video that J.Lee posted she looks like the same height as Bonnie Hunt. Can't see their footwear though.

I just met her today at Chicago Comic Con. she was very friendly. I believe Rob 100% right on Erica being 5'7" vs being 5'8" I can add my own photo Click Here to prove that. Now I am 5'9.5" barefoot. in shoes I am 5'10'5". in the picture she was wearing 3" red heels. if she is 5'7" barefoot then that makes her 5'10" in the shoes. in the picture I am still taller than her. if she was 5'8" and add 3" for her heels than she would be slightly taller then me and coming out to about 5'11". I say she is 5'7".
[Editor Rob: yes, 5ft 7 is a fair estimate to give her]
Handsome said on 18/Aug/14
Rob, What Was She Like When You Met Her?
[Editor Rob: seemed quite friendly that day]

Why are is there that "film roll" border around the picture now? Did you edit it? I don't remember it always being there haha.
[Editor Rob: Expo used to put a horrible big printed border on these photos, it looks very tacky! I don't go to those Expo's anymore because it became to busy with Anime - although the women in costumes was nothing to complain about...they had a 'don't give a toss' type attitude towards the original customers who went for celebrities.

They still get good celebs from tv shows and even some decent names but it becomes too stressful to attend!]

So,she's roughly 0.5" taller than you in this pic?Okay,that's the clearest example we have of how hair could fake judgements,I'm sure most people would think there is about 3cm here.
[Editor Rob: if she had 3cm more they'd also have to think her eyelevel was nearly 5.75 inches which is only applicable for people with giant sized heads ;) Her hair just has a bit of volume, flatten it down with water and it would lose an easy 2cm in appearance.

She is sexy as hell and very pretty, with the heels she looks 5ft 8.5 so she is looking 1/2 inch taller than rob here in the pic yeah 5ft 7 is spot on. tallish but hot girl
Matt 184.7-186.7cm said on 14/Oct/13
5ft 7 is good, she should be looking 1/2inch taller which is pretty much spot on
Lorne said on 28/Sep/13
Why does everyone think she is 5'8? She is clearly not. Not only does this pic show her at 5'7, but that is she height she looked on Smallville, since she often didn't wear heels. Come on people, Taylor Swift has claimed 5'11, but that doesn't make it true!!!
thorterr said on 28/Sep/13
god rob how many men and women on here say'who cares about her height shes gorgeous!' please use a cyberman favourite pastime on them
J.Lee said on 14/Aug/13
Rob, during this video she immediately says she's 5 ft 8 Click Here
And she says that people tell her she's so tall. What do you think?
[Editor Rob: I think she's nearer 5ft 7 than 8]
Brandon said on 11/Jun/13
she more like 5'8
Reality said on 27/Jan/13
My guess is 172 cm or 5'7.75 at night.She had her upper spine slouched a bit.I think it's like 3 cm total footwear advantage.So 5'8 most times of the day is fair in this case.
Dave said on 24/Jan/13
Who cares how tall she is exactly? She is GORGEOUS!

Issuetall...I wonder what you consider tall for men then. Oh, and by the way, I stayed once in Russia for several months and didn't feel short at 5 ft 8. Russian people aren't that tall, this is just another stereotype...


Hi! I think 190cm is begin of tall for west world, especially for west youthes. Russia is the biggest country in the world, there are so huge differences among different regions in that country. I don't know which cities have you stayed, I still visited some small cities 8 years ago, my hight is 189cm, and I didn't feel tall in there. Eespecially, compare to russian younger generation, I saw a lot of guys are over 195cm.
Maximus Meridius said on 16/Aug/12
Rob she looks about half an inch taller than you in this picture who had more footwear you or her.
[Editor Rob: she has a standard heel that day]
ANDREA[ITA] said on 14/Aug/12
Maybe not 5'8, but 5'7.25 or even 5'7.5 isnt impossible...
J.Lee said on 25/Jul/12
Rob, Erica says she is 5 ft 8 actually. Click Here In that video she says people think she's taller in real life. She says ''what's that to you?'' But would you say she is off?
[Editor Rob: I'm not so sure she is 5ft 8, to me with footwear difference I thought if she was 5ft 8 she should have looked taller than she did.]
J.lee said on 7/Feb/12
another amazing example of proportions. SHe is only 1/3 inch taller than you rob. a girl who wears heels and is 1/3 inch taller than me sometimes thinks she is 2 inches taller than me. This is another example how heels and proportions can trick the eye
Patrick said on 30/Dec/11
As you wish Rob. I won't insist.
Patrick said on 28/Dec/11
Yes Rob but if you are supposed to be one inch taller than her and that she to me - still appears as being one inch taller than you on the pic, that puts the comparison to a two-inche difference in relation to her listed height, 5'7. It is definitely too much and would mean she was wearing very high heels; forget lifts for her!
[Editor Rob:
Her head can't be above the pink line because the background starts there in the middle of her head.

Yet she's still clearly shorter than the 1.1 inch taller girl. I've nothing more to add, I can't take anybody serious who thinks a third of an inch is a full inch ;)
]
Patrick said on 15/Dec/11
I compared mailnly line of eyes and chin. I repeat that she look taller by a good inch minimum while listed one inch shorter than you Rob; sono less than 5'7 for sure.
[Editor Rob: I'm not sure about comparing chins, if you done that with every girl I'd be at a disadvantage ;)


Compare Erica to a girl who was measured 1.1 inches taller.

Erica may be a fraction taller (how big a fraction depends on how much hair she has) but the girl on the left was measured about 1.1 inch taller.

that's also good to show eye difference with girl is slightly more than the height difference and our chin difference is double the size of the height difference. Never compare chins though, especially with women ;)]
Patrick said on 1/Dec/11
On the pciture, considering the heels difference, how can she be only 5'7 since Rob is already 5'8? Here she is - whatever high the heels - a good inch and would say 1.5, taller than a 5'8 man...If Rob was 5'7, I would have agreed with "just 5'7. Not here.
[Editor Rob: if she's 1.5 inches taller then her eyelevel must be near 6 inches :)

Counting the top of her hair as her height does not count, she has at least 0.5 inch extra hairstyle compared to mine.

ChiasmataX said on 22/Nov/11
She's barely taller than you (173.5-174cm) and she had shoes advantage. I would say she's more of a 168-169cm girl but I will take 170cm.

@Demiere

We're not telling that its difficult to believe that she's taller than 5'7" because she's Canadian. We're telling this because she doesn't look taller than that.
Demiere said on 22/Oct/11
Why is it so hard to believe that a Canadian actress could be 5'7 when in the UK Princess Diana was 5'10 (178 cm) and Princess Kate is 5'8-5'8.5. Give me a break issuetall, brazillainfellow, and justsomeone.

Issuetall..No, thats horribly wrong. The average height of an American girl is 5'3'' - 5'5''
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Sorry,men, you didn't see clearly.I talked about Russian girls' height. And, I want to say that do not over-confident data. Sometimes the data is just "crap".I saw many American girls are over 175cm, maybe you can say that I have seen not enough of American giils. But I only trust my own experiences. you think 170cm is tall for women's standard, that's OK, However, I don't believe that 170cm is considered tall for American girls.
justsomeone said on 20/Jul/11
Lol @ people saying that russian women are at least 5 ft 7. Russian people aren't that tall(not even if you exclude ethnic minorities). According to a friend that was born and raised in Moscow, most women there are around 5 ft 5 (give or take). Not even the average female height in the Netherlands is 5 ft 7...Why are people always exaggerating? Apparently you people overestimate your own height (and think that everyone taller than you is tall, as a result of that)...
anon said on 4/Jul/11
I just googled her, she looks 1000x better in this photo than any of the other ones!
Brazilian Fellow said on 5/Jun/11
5'8"? Make me laugh.
dicksock said on 4/Jun/11
Well, let's do some math here: If she is edging out 5'8" Rob by maybe .5" tops and has at least a 1.5" footware advantage, then she is 5'7" max. She is 5'8.5" tops with 1.5" to 1.75" footware advantage.

5'6.5"-5'7". I'm guessing she's just under 5'7".
Patrick said on 3/May/11
I am French and can tell you that women are way taller in the States though not beingshort in France for all that.
Men are taller - black and white ones - too and above all much bulkier than "us". Depending the season, the episodes, she looks sometimes 5'8 ore else 5'7 but never less.

To Catherine and Issuetall as putout by Matt 170cm(5'7) woman is just like 184 cm(6'0.5).Which is rather tall I mean not many women walking the streets of Canada or The USA are 5'7.
Silent Assassin said on 2/Apr/11
Beautiful face, reminds me of a cute labrador for some reason...

To Sam rick:A woman with 5'7" is not tall,the avarege woman,in Europe-America,is 5'5-6",a woman is considerate tall when she's taller than 5'8-9".In Russia,i know much people who's very tall for me,but avarege for they.Look Anna C,who's 5'7.5,is from Russia,and she's considerated short.And i agree with Anonymous,Elle is tall,no Erica...

@@@@@@@@@@@@
You are right! I had been to Russia. It is commonly to see youths are 6'3 or taller, and I saw a lot of senior students are over 6'7, most of Russian young ladies are 5'7 at least. I know the average height is 5'9''5 in Russia, I think it may be just an underestimate. Interesting, the Russian leaders are usually short, but ordinary people are so tall.

@jos: so shes lost height since you dated her?
Matt said on 20/Nov/10
@ Catherine

Actually, the average american woman is 5ft 4.5in.
Also 5ft 7in for a girl is around the 80-85th percentile, which, if converted into a male height is 6ft 0.5in, it is actually quite tall, not very tall though
myspace celebrity said on 6/Oct/07
well, she just might be 5'7
supergirl on smallville looks 5'5.5-5'6 and 5'7 looks right

i say 5'8, just because she looks about 4 inches taller than allison mack
Leung said on 21/Jun/07
Rob, have you tried Adidas Megabounce shoes? They are equal in height to Nike Shox.
Alex said on 7/Jun/07
In my shox I def feel my tallest and especially since mine are like brand new so they haven't sunken in at all. My other sneakers give me just an inch of height. One I have use to give 1.25 inches but are 3 years old and are down to just an inch really.
Viper said on 6/Jun/07
Ive never worn Nike shox before. They must feel like you have gained 3 inches with them.
Alex said on 5/Jun/07
Rob you were saying about how you'd get to about 5'10 right out of bed with nike shox. I did that once and I came to about 6'2.5. They give me 1.5 inches to my height, but when you look at them from the outside you wouldn't think that.

[Editor Rob: yes, out of bed 5ft 8.6 + nike shox 1.41 inch would get me 5ft 10, of course nobody really would see that.]
glenn said on 26/May/07
shes hot.dont know who she is.i know about smallville.never watched it or any tv.

"Her husband David Palffy was there, think he hit the jackpot with this woman!"

I couldn't agree more Rob ;-) and you got her height just right keepin in mind you wrote she may be 171cm, seems very accurate.
Jameson said on 10/Apr/07
No, no, i've seen Erica in person. She looks to be around 5'10". I don't think she was hearing high heels. Maybe the person here messed it up....
[editor rob: she is in heels at an event with thousands of folk]
Daman said on 21/Mar/07
When I first saw Aaron Ashmore on the show I was shocked to see how close he was to Welling in height. I expected the difference to be akin to Welling and his brother, it was much less. Shawn definitely looks shorter than Aaron. And in the few decent shots we see between Welling/Ashmore on Smallville, the difference is certainly no more than 3", more 2 - 2.5".
patrick said on 21/Mar/07
DAVID you are right and give the most dependable testimony here by meeting her yourself!
I always saw her tall, not as S.Weaver but tall all the same; and tall means 5'8 to 9 in this case.
I trully believe you and i 'll never buy Mr Ashmore is less than 6'!
By the way, i see much more than just two inches differenc ebetween Tom and him!
DaMan said on 14/Mar/07
Aaron Ashmore is 5-8? Ashmore barely looks 2 inches shorter than Welling on the show, and is easily taller than Erica Durance. If anything I would have guessed Aaron Ashmore is the same height as his twin brother Shawn Ashmore if not a hair taller. I'd say Aaron is around 6-0 judging by how he looks next to 6-2.5 Tom Welling.
David said on 4/Feb/07
Oh your height for Erica is definitely off by two inches. She's Definitely a very close 5'9. I'm 6ft dead even in my bare feet (according to my military records) and she was only wearing flat dress shoes when I met her in Vancouver last year. I first noticed how tall she was I looked at her feet right away.
Alex said on 5/Jan/07
Looks 5'8.5-5'9 with Rob but in heels so 5'7 seems reasonable after all he did meet her so I'll take his estimate.
Rob, how tall are you in most shoes/sneakers, 5'9-5'9.5?
If you put sneakers on right out of bed you could hit 5'10.

[Editor Rob: 171cm could be fairer...no less than 170cm anyway when I think about it.

I would make the point of trying to wear the same pair or size, for last 5 events they've been a very comfortable adidas of 1.18 inches, prior was a dress shoe and 1 event a reebok. In footwear I'd be close to 5ft 9.2.

If I threw a shox on straight out of bed I could get close to 5ft 10.]
DaMan said on 2/Jan/07
She may only be a tad over 5'7" but damn she looks good in that pic. :)

[Editor Rob: one of the smiliest women I've seen...]
Anonymous said on 4/Nov/06
It's more accurate to compare Erica to Rob than to Tom Welling. We don't know Tom's exact height, but I'm sure Rob knows his own height, and he certainly has no reason to downgrade his own height on purpose. So I think Rob might be right about her being 5'7"
Mari said on 22/Oct/06
I think Jess is right, Erica is 5'8 Doubt she is shorter than that.
I can't see the picture posted by vtg, I am not a member of that board.
vtg said on 24/Jun/06
This pic isn't great for judging ED's height. As Rob pointed out before, Tom's stance is pretty wide.... and as you can see in the pic there is a red prop underneath Erica's feet. It's probably giving her a 3-4 inch lift. (click on the pic to make it bigger once you get to the site)

andrea said on 20/Jun/06
5'8 minus 1.25 inches = 166.8 cm which equals roughly a little over 5'6. I think lol That stuff is confusing!
Mel said on 11/Apr/06
Agencies and stuff always tend to stretch the truth about heights. I would say she's definitely around 170-173cm. No more, no less.

[Editor Rob: it depends, some agencies will ask the star their dimensions like height/weight, and some agencies might make up a figure. It is likely that is what erica says she is...]
Jess said on 9/Apr/06
According to Erica's profile at the PMG Management website (her agency) she is 5'8.

She's gorgeous! And she looks even taller than 170!

tvmegasite.net/prime/shows/ smallville/cast/recurringcast.shtml
this site says 5'9".
rooster said on 9/Jun/05
she's definitely taller than 170, i think around 172/173, so yeah, 5"8. my friend (who is 5"7) met her on the smallville set and said she was about 2 inches taller than her, and was wearing low heels of about an inch. think u need to bump her height up an inch!

[Editor Rob: that's a good example of why judging in-person heights can still result in different estimates from different folk. It's easier when you're within a foot and also to compare posture and stance. I'm bang on the 5ft 8 mark, took note of her heels and she had 1.25 inches over me in the foot department. I stood within a foot of her on a few occasions and with her heel advantage she was only 1cm taller max. Hence my encounter places her as a 170cm, maybe 171cm tall...whereas your friend placed her at 173cm tall. I could be wrong, your friend might be wrong :)]
Gigy said on 5/Jun/05
O.K! So O think that we can agree that she is 5'8 feet tall, but due to the hair style she has on that picture she appears taller then she is, and the difference between her and Tom is therefore smaller than it would normaly be!
5'8 is a nice height for a woman, I am 5'9.4, almost 5'10, and I can´t always wear three inch heels! Due to my height and depending on how tall my companion, sometimes I have to wear shoes without heels, which is less then perfect, cos every girl likes heels! I just thought, that with my height I could actually kick Tom Welling´s behind!
leigh said on 16/May/05
I met her at one of the Comic book conventions and I would put money on 5'6 - 5'7. However,in the new Smallville magazine she was quoted: "We sell the idea that I, being five feet eight inches, could kick some guy who's six foot one!"

[Editor Rob: well she's the tallest 5ft 8 girl I've seen ;) She could at a push be 171, but I compared her height to a few other people beside me in the queue when they were getting pictures with her and as she had heels on she was adopting a feet together pose as she done when I stood next to her.]
CelebHeights Editor said on 16/May/05
Having watched Smallville I had pegged her as being about 5ft 6ish, but on meeting her and getting a photo with her, in standard heels she was 1cm taller than me (5ft 8) so taking her heels into account Erica in person is in the 170cm range.
