Looks a legit 6"2 having watched OHMSS I think Connery and Lazenby were both 6"2 Dalton could have been a weak 6"2 but I have always thought Brosnan was 6"1 1/2 he has seemed a 6"2ish guy.

He admits to have shrinked and jokes about it here: Click Here
Jordan87 said on 2/Apr/19
He is certainly shorter than 6'0 Now with Rob. He looks about 5'11-1/2" Tops, how the average vote is over 6'0.25" shows you how off people are.
He was 67 YO when his picture was taken with Rob. His peak height was likely around 6'0.75".

I have seen all James Bond actors height. By all evidences Sean Connery is a legit 6'2" man. He looks an inch taller than Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan.Timothy Dalton and George Lazenby both might be same height 6'1.5" or Dalton was 6'1.5" and Lazenby would be 6'1.25". Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan were legit 6'1" and Daniel cream is 5'10".

George Lazenby was taller than Timothy Dalton or both were 6'1.5" or Timothy Dalton was taller than George Lazenby,Rob?
Lazenby losing 1.5 inches or so by now is likely.
Dave G said on 5/Mar/19
Had a photo shoot with him at London Spring Comic Con this past Sunday. I'm 6' and George was definitely taller than me. 6' 1" I'd say.
michael loughrie said on 8/Dec/18
I don't think that graph is completely accurate, I'd say 6' 1" or 6' 2".
Zampo said on 18/Oct/18
Honestly to me, from solely this photo. I agree with Nik. He looks like he would measure a solid 6'0. Something like 182.9-183.2 cm seems possible.
Nik said on 19/Aug/18
He looks a solid 6'0" to me!
Sandy Cowell said on 19/Aug/18
I tried to see 'The Man From Hong Kong' at the pictures when I was 14.
I was kicked out!
George gets 6ft1.75 peak and 6ft for today's height.
Jordan87 said on 30/Jul/18
5'11-1/2" with Rob. Was 67 Years old during the photo so around 1" Taller in his heyday. He may have been pushing 6'1" in his youth.
Tall Sam said on 12/Mar/18
Could you add Saint Jack to his credits, Rob? I thought he looked 6'2" in that near Ben Gazzara.
Paul NS (6ft0.5) said on 16/Feb/18
Well Anonymous don't forget Lazenby was only 66 when Rob met him. He's almost 80 now. I would probably bet on him having lost a little bit since the pic was taken.
Anonymous said on 14/Dec/17
He’s got a solid 4 inches on rob above. Who himself is a decent 5’8 most of the day. 184ish current
Duffer 5ft 11 said on 3/Dec/17
George's tuft of hair brings him up to bang on 6'. 6'1" and a bit in his youth I'd say.
James said on 25/Oct/17
Lazenby was taller than Dalton. "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" was the only Bond film I ever liked, as it was the only one to follow the novel.
said on 6/Aug/17
Rob who would you say is taller George Lazenby or Timothy Dalton?
Editor Rob: it can be tough to tell them apart, all could be argued to be 187 or 188
World Citizen said on 5/Jun/17
Very accurate listing.
Adijos said on 19/Mar/17
Josh Jeffords said on 6/Nov/16
I disagree he was a weaker 6 2 ish more 6 1.5 prime if he had one.
Worst bond actor by far and one of the youngest I think.
Giorgi said on 27/Oct/16
Rob, don't you think he looks taller here? Easily 184 I think.
said on 3/Oct/16
Rob, where did you find that bit of info on Tim being 6ft1¾?
I suppose you could argue the same mark for George or alternatively tweak Dalton's peak to 6ft2
Editor Rob: someone was trying to find out his height many many years ago, it was in an article and that was the response given I think by his representative.
said on 12/Sep/16
I think Lazenby was speaking of his "in shoe" height (and doesn't class it as a difference) when he states his height as 6-2... because I'm not sure he's even as tall as his 1, 83m tennis-playing wife Pam Shriver... I mean without those walking shoes he'd clearly be even shorter... Click Here
..... has he lost 4.5cm , 5cm or more by age 69 (when these pictures with Pam were taken?) ... I'm not so sure...
said on 7/Aug/16
I agree he looks stand out tall in his Bond outing, but if he was a legit 6'2 it seems very strange that he'd say Connery who was max 6'2.25 was taller than him, who'd really notice or remark upon a quarter inch difference ? It's also strange that a 67 year old would lose two inches in height, obviously it's not impossible but I'd imagine a normal loss aged 67 would be about 0.75 inches and he looks well in his pic with Rob he doesn't look unfit or w,e..I dunno I think 6'1.5 peak is possible it'd explain both those anomalies.
Editor Rob: like Dalton he may well have fell into the 187 range almost 6ft 2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jul/16
6ft2 range peak for sure. He looks stand out tall in OHMSS
bobert said on 1/Jul/16
His peak height is 6 ft george-lazenby-mugshot
said on 16/Dec/15
Seems to have lost more height now, or peak height was exagerated for wax work Click Here
Editor Rob: I think they probably went with his peak height for the model.
Rory said on 1/Nov/15
I thought he could look 6'2 peak but im now having doubts..the guy was 67 here, rob says he looked 5'11.75-6 ft in person and stood with good posture, with that in mind I cant see how he would have lost more than a good inch, a normal amount for a 67 year old would be 0.75-1 inch loss, baring in mind he's tall maybe a bit more, so id say a 1.25 inch loss is possible..which puts him at a strong 6'1 peak..the fact he admits Connery was taller than him supports this too, Connery was 6'2.25 Imo, and if this guy was a legit 6'2 would he rly say that ? Would he even notice Connery was taller ? I wouldn't have thought so..Lazenby being 6'1.25 or 6'1.5 is more logical Imo.
Judd ISR said on 14/Oct/15
When he played JB in 1969 of course he could have passed for a 6'2" guy but IMO he never been a strong 6'2"...I think he was 6'1.25-1.5"...
With Rob he's a strong 6'!
Andrea said on 26/Mar/15
No, he doesn't, Connor! He looks pretty near 6' in this picture, don't know what you see at times...
184.3cm said on 26/Mar/15
Thats a good list Mike.
Looks bang on 6'0 next to Rob.
Connor6'0 said on 25/Mar/15
6'0 Rob? He looks more like 5'11 with you, possibly 5'11.25.
said on 25/Oct/14
I think if you were to round up all of the bond actors except Craig (sorry Daniel!) in their prime and stand them in a line there wouldn't really be that big a difference in height.
I mean check this out Click Here

All heights for James Bond actors.

Craig peak: 5ft 10-10.25in 178 cm
Lebensdorf said on 4/Oct/14
He looked like a 6'3 guy in OHMSS in some scenes. I remember reading that Bond tailors gave his height as 6'1.5. In any event, he never looked less than 6'2. He had a very elegant shape. Perfect body. Long legs, broad shoulders, etc.
grizz said on 20/Jul/14
@182cm , that listing seems legit to me, I kinda wonder how Rob missed this site.
I think Lazenby seems taller than 183 on Rob's photo, he's closer to 185-186 cm.

snake said on 1/Sep/13
What is his personality like?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/13
He was 6ft2. So was Dalton. Connery was just over 6ft2 (measured 6ft2.4)
Brosnan and Moore were just below 6ft2
Sam said on 1/Jul/13
Next to Ben Gazarra in Saint Jack, he certainly looked no less than 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Jun/13
He looked 6"2" as a young man. I must say OHMSS wasn't as dreadful as people make it out to be. I mean he had the potential. It was his attitude problems on set that ended his run.
jake said on 5/Sep/11
6ft1.75 peak and 6ft0.25 now.
Shaun said on 5/Aug/11
His high hairline does make him look close to 6'1" but 6' looks right on the money. He's 70 odd now so surely has lost an inch or two.
Shaun said on 5/Aug/11
He definitely looked a legit 6'2" as James Bond. In fact there are some scenes when he could look close to 6'3". One scene he walks into the casino and looks 6'2.5"-6'3" range.
Lenad is sexy said on 19/Jun/11
looks solid 4 inches taller than Rob. The top of Robs head is roughly level with Georges eyes
avi said on 16/Mar/11
Solid 6'0-6'0 1/2 may have been a hair under 6'2 up until he was 60. that means his wife Pam Shriver (tennis player) isnt more than 5'10-5'11ish. Not the 6'0-6'2 claims.
said on 19/Jan/11Click Here
Does he look "clearly over 6' now??? Rob is correct with this.
Ian Fawn-Meade said on 16/Dec/10
I know George, and worked with him closely dozens of times..he's a shade over six feet tall
g said on 2/Jul/09
In OHMSS there is a scene when he walks downstairs in a good suit, he looks the full 6'2 there.
So 6''2 seems correct.
Leung said on 28/Jun/09
Yeah I agree, he looks 6
Jimbo said on 26/Jun/09
Looks more than 6ft next to Rob here. At least 6ft1, maybe 6ft1.5. Is as tall as his ex-wife Pam Shriver who I saw yesterday and she is tall! Also at least 6ft1 although listed as 6ft2 in her prime and always wears flat soles.
Leung said on 9/Jun/09
Rob I don
Frank2 said on 6/Jun/09
Lazenby was 6'2". I don't know if he lost any height with age. It does appear from the photo with Rob that he's lost quite a bit of hair.
Brad said on 4/Jun/09
I've met him twice, he's over 6'. I'll ask him in July in Burbank.
Leung said on 2/Jun/09
Sorry Rob, 6ft is too low. Hugh, James, and Doug are right, Lazenby is more like 6
Hugh 190cm said on 2/Jun/09
said on 16/May/09
More 6'1 next to rob. 6ft is too low.
[Editor Rob: Please
Lazenby hits the red line and not barely the green line...ok then, I also believe in the imaginary inch monster like you :)]
Doug said on 18/Apr/09
Wow Rob you're right. I'm shocked. I thought he looked 6'1" here. He's barely 6'. No I understand why you have him at 6'. You must admit though he looked the full 6'2" easily in OHMSS. I wonder how he lost two inches and semed to have two inches on his 6' ex Pam Shriver?
said on 17/Apr/09
Clearly taller than 6'0. Rob is likely easily 5'9" in this picture in trainers I see a 4 or 5 inch difference in all honesty. He looks a strong 6'1" in this pic I think - likely 6'1.5". WHy do you have him so low Rob? Is there something about his footwear we don't know about? Because he easily looks over 6 flat here and he was two inches taller than 6ft Pam Shriver.
[Editor Rob: Over 6ft
with a skull implant yes :)]
Anonymous said on 15/Apr/09
He looks 2 inches taller than his 6ft wife Pam Shriver. I'd say George is about 6ft2.
Anonymous said on 6/Apr/09
According to the James Bond film tailors in London, at 6' 1.75", Dalton is the tallest of all the Bond actors. The tailors who have fitted and measured each of the 5 Bonds over the years claim the following heights for each of the other Bond actors: Sean Connery 6' 1 1/2" without shoes, George Lazenby 6' 1 1/2" without shoes, Roger Moore 6' 1.25" without shoes and Pierce Brosnan 6' 1.25" without shoes.
Doug said on 4/Apr/09
He looked tall even by Bond standards in OHMSS. In fact he seemed a little taller than Connery looked although I think its because he was much less muscular than Connery and slimmer built. Watch him walk under the casino floor from the staircase, he looks a solid 188cm even 189cm.
Rob said on 1/Mar/09
After seeing On her majesty's secret serive i would say he was indeed a proper 1,88m
Hugh said on 19/Jan/09
Definately a 6ft2 Bond.
Hugh said on 14/Dec/08
He's still over 6ft. This is too low, Rob.
Hugh said on 14/Dec/08
Definately 6ft2 at his peak. I'd say about 6ft1 now.
Leung said on 25/Nov/08
True he looks 185cm.
Doug said on 25/Nov/08
Looks 6'0.5" - 6'1" to me here. C'mon guys he is obviously still taller than 1.83. Why do you always downsize people? He was 1.88 peak. He looks 1.85. An inch is all he has lost.
Ian said on 2/Nov/08
He looks over 6ft here by 0.5 of an inch. 4.5 inches from eyes to top of head on average. He has a big forehead. Rob is standing straight and is over 5ft8 in my opinion he always looks the same height as 5ft8.5 Jenny. If he were standing straight well he could be 6ft1.
Lenad said on 2/Oct/08
I cant buy 6'2 for peak sorry Rob. I can buy 6'1 for peak though.
Hugh said on 26/Sep/08
He still looks near 6ft2. Are you sure he's lost 2 inches. His posture does look good.
Lenad said on 26/Sep/08
Looks at least 6'0 there. I think its possible that he was 6'1 and didnt lose much.
Lenad said on 20/Sep/08
In James Bond he looked around 6'1. plus he did say that Sean Connery (who was around 6'2) was marginally taller than him. I think his peak should be pegged down some.
Viper said on 26/Jul/08
It was Yao is 7-7 or some other dude who kept harping on about how Lazenby was so much taller than the rest of the Bonds at over 6-3, lol.
Davey said on 25/Jul/08
Do you guys know that lezenby is lebanese?
Uncle Joseph said on 25/Jul/08
This guy looks 6ft1 in my opinion or just under it. But no 6 feet. Lazenby is slouching while rob is standing straight.
derek d said on 6/May/08
gazinder: You should have more respect while posting here... grow up man. Rob good illustration he sure has lost a few inches over the years.
ed said on 6/May/08
nice pic...dont know much about his career, he was on the verge of being a huge star after the Bond film...then next thing you know he is doing late night skinemax Emannuelle films in the 80s with Sylvia Krystal...clothes on none the less.
BERTA said on 3/May/08
looks like 185-86 here.
derek d said on 3/May/08
Matt: I completely agree with you. I don't see how people can say he was only 6'1 1/2? LOL. He did look a strong 6'3 in OHMSS. Look at the wedding scene with Lazenby and Desmond who is listed 6'2 and always looked it with Connery. Lazenby is cleary a inch taller than Desmond Llewelyn if not more, where as Connery was always the same height as Llewelyn. I think his peak should be slightly upgraded.
Charliemoto said on 3/May/08
ok he's quite tall i'll give him that but a loss of 5cm? dont think so.
20 years ago he was around 6'2 now around 6'1 imo he lost slightly an inch exactly.
he's definetely got poor posture dont be fooled.
Ivan 6'2.25 said on 6/Feb/08
that's right rooney,by the way he said connery was 6'1.5 roger moore 6'1.25 and timothy dalton 6'1.75 the tallest.
Rooney said on 28/Jan/08
According to the James Bond film tailors (the tailors have fitted and measured each of the 5 Bonds over the years) George Lazenby was 6' 1 1/2" without shoes.
glenn said on 27/Jan/08
wish i had this.everyone has it except me since i hate conventions.
Minstrel Man said on 27/Dec/07
Lazenby looks about 6'0.5" in the photo above. I wonder if his comment of Connery being taller than him refers to their peak heights or present heights. Anyway, I think Lazenby's peak was about 6'1.5".
Matt said on 27/Nov/07
A touch shorter than I would have thought. He looked a strong 6'3" to me in OHMSS. He looked like a beanpole compared to some of the supporting cast. Not as bad a Bond as many make him out to be, either.
Joshua said on 20/Oct/07
Well he sure looked tall in OHMSS. 6-2 sounds damn right.
Ray said on 11/May/07
Viper, I wasn't too sure about 6'2.4" for Connery until I saw a photo of Michael Caine with 6'2" and change, Clive Owen. They were the same height and Caine is in his seventies. Sean had easily 0.5" on Caine in "the man who would be king". He's also a heavily built guy which would give the impression of him being shorter than he actually is. I can see 6'2.4" for Connery in his early 20's.
Mario said on 10/May/07
That's your opinion, but considering he was about two inches taller than some guy's of that competetion who where at least 6 ft and that he looks easy 6 ft 2.5 in the Bond movie's next to his co-stars in my opinion, I think that that measurement is close or is the truth. 6 ft 2.4 sounds also pretty accurate.
I haven't seen much of Lazenby, and I keep changing my opinion on him, but he looks a good 6 ft 2 next to 5 ft 8.5 Diana Rigg.
Viper said on 9/May/07
"Connery was measured at 6'2.4" (189 cm). Lazenby, probably was 6'1.5" (187). Both, claim 6'2" which is reasonble enough but somebone an inch taller than you would be noticeable to yourself as you would feel yourself stretching to match their height."
Sorry Ray, but Ive never beleived the supposed 6-2.4 measurement for Connery. Not for a second. Mainly because we dont know If it was barefoot or in shoes, and secondly hes never really looked 6-2.4 at all. He looks a more beleivable 6-1.5 in the Bond films. So Lazenby at a flat 6-1 at peak and Connery at 6-1.5 peak looks to be more accurate.
said on 6/May/07
No offense Rob, but in that photo big George looks a good 5" taller so 6'1"!
lol, I'm not going to take offence at anybody's opinion ;)
its always interesting to read what people think height differences are. Many people overestimate it, even I would sometimes positively round what I think a diff might be in celeb2celeb comparisons...
5 inches is BIG though...
That pic is as close to ideal as you can get in photo ops with celebs...no footwear difference, same distance from camera, he isn't slouching, trust me on that...
If you want some sort of calculation to illustrate why he isn't 6ft 1 then:
Consider my interpupil distance, technically its slightly less than 6.4, but hey lets just use
Robs 6.4cm pupil
Lazenby pic with markings:
I've drew marks showing how much hair (mine isn't that much, lazenby is brushed up and back).
I drew mark showing the pupils aswell and that distance between them isn't more than 6.4cm.
Now, use that to figure out that he is close to 8.7cm taller, but lets be generous and round that to 9cm.
Look how much 8.6cm actually looks like with the ruler in the central part of my head:
- its a fair whack.
The pic might have some slight vertical distortion, but it really isn't much, the angle is pretty wide, but lets add on another 0.25cm. Lets give him another 0.25cm for say extra hair below my black hair line.
9.5cm we're up to now...or 5ft 11 and 3/4. Give him another 1/4 inch if you want, he's a good fella ;)
Leung said on 6/May/07
He was on “Where are they now?” (Aussie tv show) last night and he wasn’t much shorter than Kochie who is 6’3”. Lazenby looks 6’1”.

Where was this Rob?
Josh said on 4/May/07
6'0 seems about right.
said on 4/May/07
Looks 6'1" in that photo with Rob. He has stated that Connery was taller than him which would sound right. Connery was measured at 6'2.4" (189 cm). Lazenby, probably was 6'1.5" (187). Both, claim 6'2" which is reasonble enough but somebone an inch taller than you would be noticeable to yourself as you would feel yourself stretching to match their height.
[editor rob: this is close to ideal photo for calculating difference that i mention in one of the articles i know my various face dimensions and can be used to estimate pretty well.. he is very close to six foot but never over.]
Mario said on 4/May/07
Mr. Lazenby also told editor Rob that Sean Connery was taller than him. Would you say that somebody is 'taller' than you if that person has only a 0.4-0.5” on you?
Derek said on 3/May/07
Looks 6'0"-6'1" with Rob. Definitely under 6'2".
glenn said on 3/May/07
Viper said on 3/May/07
He listed at 6-1 as well.
Trev said on 29/Mar/07
A few years ago I bought a video box set of OHMSS, in the box was a booklet of the actors biog and stories about shooting the film , on the info of Lazenby is an image of his CV, with vital stats such as shoe size, coller, chest etc which states that he is 6'1.5". He was a great bond, if only he'd have stuck with it! Second best to Connery!
jan said on 29/Dec/06
He's still my favorite Bond.
email@example.com said on 29/Dec/06
When I met George recently he looked every inch of 6'2" (in fact I told my friends he seemed to be about 6'4" with a handshake of a much younger person. ...a nice chap, very amusing too.
Mario said on 13/Oct/06
And I always though that he looked in the 190 cm range! At least in OHMSS, because I don't know him from any other movie.
This hasn't much to do with his height, but how was the man himself Rob?
Editor Rob said on 2/Oct/06
I asked Lazenby on Saturday about his time on Bond and sneaked him a question about height/tallest bond, he said (paraphrasing) 'I'm 6ft 2, but Connery is taller than me'.
Nowadays, he has very good posture but I would have guessed not over 183cm today, so whether he's lost 1-1.5 inch, I dunno.
said on 11/Aug/06
5'10" Telly Savalas standing 6'1"? Hmmmm.....? (gotta be lifts..)Click Here
Lazenby married tennis star 6'0" Pam Shriver in 2002 and, at 65, has a son, George Jnr, with twins on the way here...(gulp, How tall will they grow up to be?)...Click Here
Jacks said on 26/Apr/06
6ft and .5 inches for lazenby. I don't think any of the Bonds were actually at 6'2. I think Brosnan is the shortest at 5'11 and 1/2in . No way Lazenby was at a solid 6'2.
Picture said on 25/Apr/06
Every Bond has been promoted at 6 ft 2.
I doubt they will do the same with Craigy.
Viper652 said on 21/Apr/06
Was Laznenby really a big 6-3 guy?? I keep reading some encountersd with him that say he was over 6-3, and the studios downgraded him? Im still sticking with 6-1 1/2 on him.
Picture said on 20/Apr/06
Peak height: 6 ft 3
Current height 6 ft 2.
Forever_69 said on 12/Mar/06
Not sure if this helps but on A&E they recently did a bio on Gene Simmons, in it there is a picture of him standing next to Connery, when Connery was in his mid 50's, possibly would have shrunk some by then, Simmons would be at peak height.
Both men have normal looking shoes on are facing each other, are same distance from camera, standinh upright, and on level fround, they appear exact same height.
Simmons is listed as being 6-2 in many sources, while Connery was said to be 6-2 in Never Say Never Again in 1983, down from 6-2.5 in his early 20s (which seems feasible)
Now in the 1986 film Too Young To Die, George Lazenby appears about an inch taller than Simmons. Lazenby would have been around age 46 at that time.
It's anecdotal evidence but it does appear Lazenby was more like a solid 6-3 compared to those two if they were 6-2.
[Editor Rob: it is feasible Lazenby was closer to 6ft 3 in his prime]
J.J.F said on 19/Dec/05
"I am 185-186cm and pegged Brosnan at 188cm minimum, he also had normal 2-2.5cm dress shoes on, so no LIFTS!!"
You still don't seem to understand that proper elevator shoes, dress shoes or boots it doesnt matter, are specially designed to look exactly like normal shoes, they dont have larger soles. You can't see the difference unless you lift up the trouser leg. Try and accept that.
You just can't be certain whether the guy had normal shoes on or not, no matter how annoyed this may make you.
As for lazenby I think he looked a solid 6'2" next to 'Q' in OHMSService.

Dalton and Brosnan are closer to the camera.
There is a picture in wich Lazenby and Dalton look about the same height and then again there is another picture in wich Moore looks about the same height as Brosnan.
Brett said on 2/Dec/05
Yes picture, explain this then,
regardless of where they are standing the difference between moore, brosnan, and lazenby is obvious.
Picture said on 24/Nov/05
I still can't believe that in such a cool site as celebheight Brosnan is listed as almost 6 ft 2. Everyone knows that Brosnan is shorter than Lazenby and Dalton who are now grandpas and not as tall as they were in there younger days.
Brett said on 23/Nov/05
Seb, I met Brosnan in the Marc hotel on madison and 77th Manhattan, he was standing with an elderly lady, whom I didnt recognise. Seb by saying Brosnan is no more then 6ft proves your ignorance, Brosnan in the pic with all 4 of them was the biggest one there bar Dalton, who was also closest to the camera. I am 185-186cm and pegged Brosnan at 188cm minimum, he also had normal 2-2.5cm dress shoes on, so no LIFTS!! Now seeing your just claiming heights based on nothing, and Yao is a chick, I think you guys are just wasting your energy typing. I can tell you that Connery is no more then 6ft anymore, as close friend of mine had a photo with connery, and connery was unable to see over my 5'8" inch friends head. I can see over it easily and im just over 6'1". So thats rubbish. Brosnan claims to be 6'2" and no less, and I am able to verify this. Seb you can list bond heights all you like, but seeing you have had no encounters with them, they will remain mere speculations, so stop bothering .
Seb said on 12/Nov/05
It's hilarious the people who come here lying about having met a certain celebrity, and ten times as well! The fact is Brosnan is no more than 6 foot and if he looks taller then he is wearing lifts. Lazenby was nearly 6'2 as a young man, and 6'1 now.
Seb said on 10/Nov/05
The only reason Brosnan looked taller than Moore is because Moore is old and has lost some height. If Brosnan looks 6'2 in real life then he is wearing some very good shoes because after Daniel Craig he is unquestionably the shortest actor to play Bond, so haha.
Brett said on 28/Oct/05
That site freewebs.com purposely doesnt show the pic of 4 of them when brosnan towers over moore, and only shows some other random pic, where moore probably has lifts on. But they choose to use half of the pic where all 4 of them are shown when comparing Lazenby to moore, sounds dodgy to me, hes just trying to list the order that he wants. If he just put that whole pic up he would see how much brosnan and dalton tower over the other 2.
Brett said on 28/Oct/05
yes like you would know haha are you their tailor. Ive met brosnan as Ive said about 10 times, in the marc hotel new york, and if he is 6'0" then i must be 5'11" except im 185-186cm and he was like 1 to 1.25 inches taller then me, so thats rubbish, nice one. Also in that pic with all four bonds ( laz, bros, Dalton, and moore) Brosnan and dalton are clearly the tallest while moore looks the shortest by a couple inches. so rubbish. I would say Lazenby is still around 6'1.5" or so, maybe a tiny bit more. As I have met brosnan, I just think its hilarious how people say hes only like 5'11" , the Brosnan i saw could see over a person whoes 5'11"s bloody head almost.
Seb said on 21/Oct/05
The real aheights of the Bond actors, according to their tailors:
Lazenby 6-1 and a half

Who is Tallest? said on 18/Sep/05
Here's a good one on Lazenby, but yet leaves a lot of speculations.
Pam Shriver played back in the day when tennis players were listed barefoot height. She was always listed 6 feet even. When she married Lazenby she was just about 40 years old and based on being an athlete all her life highly unlikely she would have shrunk by then at all.
Lazenby at this age when he married her probably had already shrunk a little bit.
Normally a man wera a one inch shoe when getting married, and the woman a 2 inch heel. So let's assume this, unfortunately we have to because the pic doesn't show more than that. But this would seem to put Lazenby 6-1 or 6-2 in his early 60s.
6-1 maybe if she has a 1 inch shoe on, 6-2 if she has a 2 inch shoe on.
Yao is 7-7
said on 17/Sep/05
Even using your insistence Lazenby is closer, which again how does that matter when at his left shoulder and side of his head, and at Dalton's right side of both, which are SAME distance from camera, Lazenby still is at least same height to hairline, even with Dalton's receeding hair.....
So that argument doesn't add up but even saying so, ok then
compare Dalton and Moore at same distance in this image, with Dalton looking up, Moore looking down, which probably gives another inch to Dalton, which you have to consider:
Now compare THAT to THIS:
Lazenby and Moore pose same angle on (on opposite sides), both right there at distance, Moore again looking down (must be old age setting in causing him to lose his height some) Lazenby looks straight and is upright, so maybe Moore only loses an inch here versus the other pic where he might lose an inch, then again Dalton looks up (but that's hard to judge so).....
(even saying he loses the same in both even not considering Dalton's receeding hairline, let's assume just the difference is equal in both),
COMPARE then to THIS image,
It really seems Lazenby is taller when you take away the optical illusions.
and if you compare that to the image on Brosnan's page:
Dalton is CLOSER to camera, again though Moore is taller here because he hasn't lost that stature yet, BOTH probably gain an inch there which would even out.
And again Brosnan is 6-1 0r 6-2? PLEASE
This also shows what I say about the Lazenby/Moore/George Baker comparison is right, Lazenby IS much taller than Moore. Give Moore another inch because of his old age, and maybe Lazenby half an inch, he is STILL much taller. Bond tailor's heights are full of it.
I am sorry, then compare this to Connery/Moore NOT when Moore is leaning but in the Oscars images, Lazenby is tallest Bond it just is obvious, while Brosnan is shortest. Dalton is right after Lazenby along with Connery, then Moore next.
It's probably something like peak heights
Lazenby 6-2 1/2
Connery 6-1 1/2 to 6-2 range (I can give him that one at 6-2) (NOT 6-2 1/2)
Brosnan 6-0[Editor Rob: Lazenby does have a fair advantage over old parkinson in that photo you show. Although, even Clooney looks tallish in this pic]
Yao is 7-7 said on 17/Sep/05
And yet from the same point when measured he is actually NOT.
Again this is why looking at people and looking at photos PROVES NOTHING unless you use a straight edge to compare.
Just like everyone thinks Shawn Bradley is taller than Yao, because he looks taller, but with a straight edge and Yao's feet apart Yao is actually taller in a pic where he looks shorter.
It is an optical illusion that the human eye can not decipher either in person or looking nakedly with the eye at a photo.
Mario Nariano said on 16/Sep/05
Ehm if you have hear you look taller, so it's nonsense that a guy looks taller if he has is head shaped. I was at the Die Another Day premiere and I can tell you that Dalton is those days a little taller than Lazenby.
Yao is 7-7 said on 15/Sep/05
You are wrong.
It is an optical illusion, Dalton looks taller to people because of how his head is shaped. This is just like Shawn Bradley looks taller than Yao, but isn't.
It is simply because of head shape that you are mislead.
Because NO Lazenby is NOT CLOSER to the camera.
Look at Lazenby's left shoulder and dalton's right shoulder AS I SAID. You are grasping at straws now.
That image clearly shows at Lazenby's left side of head and shoulder and Dalton's right side of head and shoudler SAME EXACT DISTANCE from the camera lazenby is taller.
You cannot dispure that and the site cannot either other than to claim what you know is wrong, which you are.
Dalton is not over 6-1, it is a fantasy to think he is period.
Mr. Klaus said on 13/Sep/05
In the picture of Lazenby, Moore and Dalton. Lazenby is the closest to the camera. Poeple who was at the die another premiere also claims that Dalton was the tallest of the 4 Bond actors.
Yao is 7-7 said on 12/Sep/05
Also note Dalton looks up in that image, Lazenby down, still same height at hairline, even with dalton's hairline receeding further, and Lazenby half an inch to an inch taller at his left shoulder, than Dalton at his right shoulder.
I think it's clear now Lazenby was tallest Bond peak, because Connery isn't looking over 6-1.5 peak, see Connery's page on here.
Yao is 7-7 said on 12/Sep/05
Lazenby is definitely 6-1.5 area now, and certainly would indicate a man of his age was 6-2 range at least at his peak:
photo evidence of current height:
I think peak height Lazenby is taller than Dalton.
Mario Nariano said on 27/Aug/05
I will soon rewatch the movie, but from what I can renember they looked at some points the same height. 2 inches isn´t really much, my uncle is 2 inches shorter than I, and sometimes he can look taller than my.
PS. I chanced DiCàprio´s height a year ago to 6 ft 1 and Eastwood to 6 ft 1.
Yao Is 7-7 said on 26/Aug/05
No imdb claims that they ONLY use heights straight from the actor or reps, UNLESS the height is not listed. In other words, if the height is already listed it won't be changed unless a rep or actor changes it. Of course that does not mean the heights are real.
However, I keep seeing it said Q looks as talla s Lazenby. This is simply not true. There is a scene at the wedding where they stand right next to each other and at one point BOTH look up and stand perfectly straight. Lazenby appears a sold inch taller at that moment. Q has bad posutre yes, SO DOES Lazenby.
Lazenby also has horrible posture in the scene with Baker, and it is AT MOST an inch height difference no way it is anything close to 2 inches. 2 inches is a HUGEly notiecable height difference between people. It honestly looks more like half an inch with bad posture.
AGAIN claiming this or that will not override what can actually be checked by this site.
Mario Nariano said on 24/Aug/05
If you compare the eyeline between Baker en Lazenby, you will see that Lazenby is two inches shorter. In de Hola magazine Lazenby says that he was at his peak 187 cm. Perhaps everyone can submit heights on IMDB. Send a good pic to an admin of connery and Moore and they will give connery 6 ft 3.
Mario Nariona said on 24/Aug/05
The are some points in the wedding scene in wich Lazenby looks about the same hieght as Llewelyn. Llewelyn has bad posture, you should know that as a Bond fan. T o be honest lazenby ) who claims by himself that he is 6 ft 2) never looked taller than 6 ft 2
Yao- Is_77 said on 24/Aug/05
this one Lazenby straight, Weiss leaning
yours, Lazenby leaning, Weiss straight
When Weiss Leans and Lazenby is straight, they look same height, when Lazenby leans and Weiss is straight looks an inch difference.
This would then surmise a half an inch difference between 6-3 Weiss and Lazenby. Incidentally this matches Lazenby's 6-2 1/2 height listing on imdb, I asked their admin about it, they said Lazenby's reps sent that as Lazenby's current height, down from 6-3 in his prime.
Again this matches the height comparsion of Roger Moore/George Baker/George Lazenby in the films The Spyw Who Loved Me and On Her Majesty's Secret Service, as well as Desmond Lewyllen and Lazenby in On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
It also proves Weiss is 6-3, and so is Baker, and that Moore is 6 feet, thus Lazenby was 6-3 at his peak.
[Editor Rob: I tried to see if there were some good pics of him and Pam Shriver but the ones available aren't good for comparison. We know she most likely hasn't shrunk...]

You don't get it. If Lazenby is 6-2/12 after he shrunbk half an inch shorter than Michael T. Weiss in his late 60's how can he be shorter than Dalton?
Also this website is skweing everything, provided a pic of lazenby and Weiss confirming this they deleted it later when another mod saw it and didn't like it
Also this site can EASILY go to the spotlight Uk actors reps website on the web
Got to Tim Dalton's page by searching for Tim Dalton.
Then at the contact guide use it to contact his reps.
I did this, and guess what, "Timothy Dalton is 6-1'.
[Editor Rob: only one person operates this site. Anyway, if I delete a comment with a pic more likely it is because the url is incorrect or hotlink protection is enabled on the website. Resubmit stuff if you don't see it. Unfortunately I do delete some comments by mistake...Michael Weiss and George Lazenby
- that link might be protected.Lazenby and Weiss
- this one should work.
As for you contacting Dalton's representative. Why bother...you didn't need to because remember you sent me that big long email claiming to have personally corresponded with all these bond actors? I shall reprint your exact words:"Timothy Dalton - He tells me he is really 61 years old, not 59 years old. His agent changed his age. Secondly, he tells me his agent also changed his height from 6 feet even barefoot, to 6'2" barefoot, and made him wear shoe lifts. He says that when he played Bond he was really 6 feet even barefoot, but he wore the 2 inch lifts, making him appear to be 6'2". He states that his agent had him begin wearing the lifts with his first film. He did not wear them in the film Hawks, which has been brought up on your site. He has told me that if you watch Licence To Kill closely, you will notice he is about 2 inches taller than Robert Davi when both have shoes on in the film, but that when Dalton is wearing no shoes in one scene, Davi is about an inch taller. This is where he says you can see the difference. Tim claims that he rarely wears the shoe lifts in normal life and out in public, but that whenever it is a press related thing, his agent makes him wear them. This explains why some people meet him and he looks shorter, then other times he is seen and looks so tall. And why he looks so much taller in films."
Mr. Klaus said on 22/Aug/05
Nah I don't think so, he was slighty over 6 ft when he was playing Bond. Moore is about the same height as Michael Lonsdale (His Moonraker co-star). From The pics that i have seen of Connery and Moore I would say that Connery is two inches taller. In 1981 Connery visited the "For your eyes only" set, i have seen some pics in wich you can clearly see that Connery was clearly two inches taller. In the Moore page there is also a good pic of Caine, Connery and Moore. Ah and Lazenby is those days a little shorter than Dalton.
Yao Is 7-7 said on 21/Aug/05
Moore was only 6 feet tall. Both he and Brosnan werw put taller than they were.
1.5 inches between Connery and Moore.
Mr. Klaus said on 20/Aug/05
Do you see 2cm of difference between Connery and Moore? Because I not.
Viper652 said on 15/Aug/05
If Connery is 6-2.5 then why do his tailors say 6-1.5??? I will beleive them more over some random person on the internet.
Mr. Klaus said on 13/Aug/05
Lazenby has Hair and a damm good posture and Llewelyn not (and maybe he wasn't at his full height).
I only know Lazenby from his role as James Bond, so I don't know how tall he looks in his TV-series and other movie's, but he has sayd by himself that he was 6 ft 2, why would a 6 ft 3 guy say that he is 6 ft 2? Connery was 6 ft 2.4 and when poeple asked him about his height he sayd that he was 6 ft 2 because it's easier to say.
Anshelm said on 23/Jul/05
Indeed, in The Pretender he looked maybe 4–5 cm shorter than Michael T. Weiss (usually listed as 6'3", but his character's height was 6'2"). Of course, he was aged 59 and 60 in the episodes he appeared in.
David said on 3/Jun/05
It's true tennis player's heights nowadays are in their tennis shoes, adding about an inch from their barefoot height. However, in pam's day those heights were without shoes. Pam Shriver is 6 feet without shoes, as in her time they listed heights without shoes.
John said on 1/Jun/05
I have seen several picsof them. In one pic Lazenby is slouched over about 6 inches and still appears to be only about 2 inches shorter than Shriver. In another, standing next to each other Lazenby appears about an inch shorter, yet Shriver has high heels on. Tennis players arelisted in heights with shoes BTW. So Lazenby may be 6-1 now from old age barefoot, or still 6-2 barefoot, but he's at least 6-2 with shoes on.
Mr. R said on 21/May/05
One way to be sure about George - he is now married to former tennis player Pam Shriver who was always listed at 6 foot even. Maybe Rob can find a pic with the two of them together!
Seth said on 20/May/05
George Lazenby according to the Wax Museum, which still has his data claims that Lazenby was 6'2" tall without shoes on.
