A half inch downgrade is necessary Rob.

I like her comment above about her L-O-N-G hair!

I've seen her with the other OITNB women cast and she is always looking a smidge shorter than Laura Prepon. I think she is just slightly above 5ft9 and not near 5ft10 Rob

I don't think she (Francesca) generally has bad posture on the show but I understand what you're trying to say... Still I'm not convinced she would be near 5'10! Hmm... It would be interesting to see her with Taylor, Laura or Laverne! I think she had a few scenes with Taylor in season 4, where she probably looked taller. How much I'm not sure...
Anyway, can you add Danielle too?
- Blair Brown: she gets listed at 5'8 but she looks a bit shorter than that, like somewhere between 5'1 and 5'2 at most! But she is 71, so maybe 5'8 at peak is not impossible... If she has lost over 6 inches, of course! 😉 She also had an important role on Fringe!
- Amanda Stephen: i don't know if she's worth adding but she doesn't look under 5'7. Possibly a bit over... On this agency page, she gets described as 5'9 but I don't know if that is her official agency/claim! Click Here I wouldn't have guessed her that tall, though. She can look quite similar to Adrienne C. Moore, I think!

Amanda's agent or herself would have used that backstage site, so it's pretty much a legit claim, though I haven't really seen much of her.

I had a look at Blair a few months ago when doing Fringe tag, but for some reason didn't add her, I will do that now, today 5ft 1.5 maybe, but likely lost a good inch.

Btw, would you consider adding a few more girls?
- Danielle Brooks: she gets listed at 5'4 and she can look close to it.
- Alysia Reiner: she gets listed at 185 and that would be a good enough reason to add her, because she obviously looks nowhere near that. With Laverne she looks at least 2 good inches shorter, here: Click Here In this one, she doesn't look that much different though (might be bigger heels, different angles?): Click Here
I don't know, I would have said maybe somewhere between 5'9 and 5'10 is not impossible.
Actually, I just found her claim: Click Here
She does claim 5'11!
Editor Rob
Alysia, yes thanks I will add her, it might be at times poor posture.

I wouldn't have guessed her much under that claim, 5ft 10.5 maybe is possible. Interesting in that video about being tall is interesting, she mentioned a few of those clichés I'm sure other tall girls heard before too.

Rob, how likely is 5'9? She looks quite tall on OITNB but I would have said more 5'9 range... Maybe even 5'8.5 at times! 5'10 in shoes is quite possible, I think.
Editor Rob
she can seem that height at times, but her posture looks up and down. I wouldn't rule out 5ft 9 and change as a possibility.
