One day Rob will accidently post a full body shot up on here with a celebrity and he'll be wearing a whopping pair of elevator boots... and he'll confess he's just found out he's lost his first millimetre and is making up the difference to the tune of 4 inches extra boot tread.
Jenny will be found scowling in the background as Rob wobbles around the convention centre in military posture, leaning on celebrities shoulders to look as tall as possible.
The CelebHeights longest serving posters will go into meltdown as Rob completely destroys everything he ever stood for, with Glenn running around the Bronx naked & barefoot screaming 'I told you so!!'
It would be interesting to show the difference in a photo with a celebrity, going from one photo wearing a small sneaker to another with a decent sized elevator, but I think I'll keep any photos of me in Elevators to Promo or Gimmick photos

I agree we're all kids at heart, but imagine how much a guy who measured, say 6ft2 in his prime, would have to shrink if his destiny 'at a certain age' would be 5ft6? 😩
Ergo, I disagree! 😁

@ Sandy Cowell - Doesn't it just? However it is so true, we are all kids at heart and the average height of all the people within any age group is different to what the average height is of all the people within any other age group! Geoffrey must be above average for his age group and by about 3 inches, he's a big lad!

@ Nik - Being 'tall for his age' sounds rather like the sort of thing you might say to a kid! 👧🔍🧒📏

He is significantly above average for his age!

Maybe 5'8.75" since he had a slight camera advantage over Rob.

Well, he looks quite nice to me!

Looks a solid 5'9... with a bit of an advantageous angle! 😝
Yes, the same girl moved the camera 5 inches to right of centre...to be fair, she did hold the camera at the right height and didn't lower it, which is something a few photographers have done for 3/4-length portraits - if it's too low it's not going to be flattering to the subjects.
On a bit of a side-note - there is one organiser I asked regularly to consider changing their photo setup. They would use this backdrop Click Here
which is fine for close up landscape, but if you wanted to do portrait, never mind full length, the photos would look awful as there is chairs holding the smaller white backdrop up.
Last year they listened to me and changed it to a continuous photographic backdrop 😉
I hope Showmasters keep an eye on CelebHeights and check out some of the full length photos I'll put up in the future, to maybe consider them as an option, because off-white full length backdrops work!

Rob,what if someone like him,in 1974 lied in the spotlight and add himself 1 extra inch (especially as actors do) and in real he was 5'9 in 1974,same as today?Greetings
I think it is unlikely, though if you reached late 70's with only half inch lost, you've done remarkably well and had good genes and look after yourself.

Oh, I thought I recognized him from somewhere - it was 'Doctor Who'. He wasn't as sinister a Master as Roger Dalgado though, even if he was superior in height! 😥
5ft10 peak and 5ft9 now.
He played a 'battle scarred
' master so to speak. For near 78 Geoffrey is still in good health and asked me if he should look mean or smile, I said look mean.
