A common misperception of me is...
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.

I'm a size eight, but a typical African woman's shape - large thighs and chunky legs. And I'm just 5ft 3in tall. But luckily, my boyfriend loves my J-Lo bum!

5’1 looks too low,5’1.75 is maybe closer to the truth.

Rob,are you dropping height on both pics?On the upper one she looks a little less than 3" smaller so like maybe 5.75 difference without footwear advantage.On the lower one she looks 5.5" smaller but 6" assuming footwear,so if anything in the strong 5'2 range.While I'm sure she's no more than the 5'2 she claims it's still surprising to see how tall she could look.Could it also be that she stood closer to the camera?

In the bottom photo meeting I guessed she looked around 5ft 2 range, I wasn't so sure about 5ft 2.5 range or I'd have given her 5ft 2. However that is just my estimate.

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!!
Arch Stanton said on 16/May/14
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!
Andrew M said on 22/Sep/13
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!
Len said on 10/Sep/13
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.

Editor Rob
store signing I think, but never seen her at a convention.

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.
Olivia said on 15/Feb/09
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.
Lucille said on 11/Dec/08
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
alex said on 7/May/07

thought she was about 5"4 actually.
