Freema Agyeman's Height
5ft 1 ½ (156.2 cm)
English actress, best known for playing Martha Jones on Doctor Who, Larissa Loughlin on The Carrie Diaries and Alesha Phillips on Law&Order: UK. In The Independent she said a common misconception about her was "That I'm a lot taller. I'm only 5'2 but people seem to think I'll be bigger than I actually am. I have no problem with that. Being short works for me"
. Although on an early Spotlight casting profile she was listed: "Height 5 feet 1 inches"
. The photo on left is from a 2011 London Expo (she had 3 extra inches of footwear over me) and on the right I was wearing Converse
, whilst she had footwear that gave about 0.6-0.7 inches more than mine.

I was really shocked to see 5 ft 1.5 listed as Freema's height. If it's true then she's TINY! She definitely does not look that small on screen! Just... 5'1.5''! Really?!

I thought her to be about 5ft4 from Law and Order UK! I never saw her to speak of in Doctor Who; I kept missing the episodes! She always looks so professional in Law and Order UK; I guess that's why I assumed she was taller. But she's my sort of height, poor girl!
I left to go to the Doctor's this afternoon and wore flowery flats so that I could hurry as I was running late. I had to stand next to another patient, a woman, who must have been a head or more taller than me at reception and I was overlooked even though I got there first! I was straight into the nearest shop to purchase myself a couple more inches in the form of a pair of boots. Then I felt MUCH better!
Freema, alas, must know the feeling!

That's still a correct and a comfortable height for a girl

Despite of her height, she is really beautiful.

Another great looking girl. They've had some very good looking companions over the years in Dr Who.
And yes, not tall but as she says, I'm sure it hasn't hindered her.

Although I tend to forget that in most of the world people view pale western women are more ideal physically. Basically people always want what they can't have!!

She has the sort of skin most pale white women would badly envy!! Incredibly lucky to look as she does even if not tall.

I saw her in LA- very short- but absolutely beautiful. Many actors look much worse in person - NOT HER!

That's amazing. I always thought she was taller than that too - easily 5' 4" or more. And to think, she was working alongside 6ft+ David Tennant when I watched her!
I wonder what her secret is? At 5'6" I could do with looking a lot taller myself!

Wow, I wouldn't have guessed she was that short... she must be wearing boots or very high heels literally ALL the time.
Definitely the best-looking Doctor's companion of all-time. Yes, even over the gorgeous Billie Piper.
[Editor Rob: she is a pretty girl, I think she is a weak 5ft 2, she had very big heels that weekend.]

I really didn't think she was that short. My friends and I always love to guess celebrity heights, and our closest guess was 5 ft 4in.

I was thinking of 5 ft 3 for her but after looking to some pictures, I'd say she's still less than that and so 5 ft 2 seems right. She's a pretty lil doll.

Nay, 5'2 is about right for Freema. She wore 3 and 4 inch heals on Doctor Who and still only stood right about the tip of David Tennant's shoulder, but she's cute nonetheless.
bex said on 25/Jan/08
she must wear quite high heels because david tennant is apparently 6 ft 1 and she comes up to his nose lol
