Rob,if Gottfried is 6'2 How tall do you think Claus Theo Gartner is?He's a famous german actorClick Here at 39:56 I thought 5'6 range assuming he has about 0.5" shoe advantage.

5ft 6 is a likely range, there was quite a big difference at that moment.

Rob, at least 6'3" in Goldeneye and Asterix.

I'd definitely argue a bit over this mark. He was maybe 1in taller than Brosnan in Goldeneye but then easily 4in or more on Sean Bean. He was a large-framed guy and had great posture which might have added to the illusion of more height. He looked towering in that prison scene. I'm sure his stature was one of the reasons they cast him as General Orumov. His overall demeanour just screamed villainy...terrific actor.

I'd have thought closer to 6ft3. He was taller than Brosnan

a good 6'2 tall in his early days now looks between 6'1 and 6'2

He looked exactly 6'2 in Proof of Life. I thought he was taller before, but there he was just two inches below David Morse.

Watching GoldenEye on TV right now... yeah, has about three inches on Famke Janssen; I'd say a strong 188 cm rather than weak. Maybe taller in youth? He's 64 now. Good posture.
