Bill is no way 1.252cm taller. This two brother is only 6mm between each other.

Oh, how superb! Gustaf stars in 'Vikings', which I'd like to see from the beginning or not at all. I did once take a sneaky peak just to observe whether the violence was up to scratch, but it was smothered in swearwords that hadn't even been invented then, so I merely found it funny! Yes, folks, I have a little dictionary which explains the origins of swearwords, but I'll be f****d if I know where it is!

When I saw Gustaf's height, I simply KNEW that he was part and parcel of that mega-tall Swedish acting dynasty. Personally, I like Stellen the best because he's so adaptable.

My Mum had an Onkel Gustaf and he was a farmer. She used to spend the Summers with him and his wife, but though I know his job made him a very strong man, I'd eat my hat if he was any taller than around 5ft8. That seems to be the height my male German side averaged out at. The females had the occasional really tall specimen, for instance, my Great Great Grandmother was reputed to be very tall indeed! I wonder when she was born then, if my Grandmother was born in 1897? Probably in the first half of the 19th Century. They didn't tend to have kids as late as is customary nowadays. The medical care wasn't advanced at all, and many women would be dying in childbirth, ones for whom the complications would be a cinch to tackle in this day and age. It isn't only human height that has come on in leaps and bounds!

The super-tall Gustaf gets 6ft3. 🤣📏

always looks legit 6 oot 3 in height. could be 191 cm even one swedish paper called him 193 cm. He isnt that tall but i think he have claimed other height than 190 cm. its seems a 1cm to low
Yourdad said on 18/Nov/18
Him and bill look identical to me in height
Leno179 said on 2/Jun/18
Solid 190 cm
Dream(5'9.5") said on 8/Apr/18
If he wished to claim 6’3”, then no one would question him.

He really can be the full 6’3”.
Andiboy said on 28/Mar/18
Pretty sure he’s the full 6’3 (190.5cm). Never really apears under it even with bad posture.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 27/Mar/18
I take it back.

He does have good posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Feb/18
Gustaf has a hair disadvantage. Both him and Bill could be 6ft3 even
Jonas said on 24/Dec/17
You got it wrong... Gustaf is taller than Bill

@Slim 186 thanks Dude! I will!
Slim 185 said on 30/Nov/17
Dreampuffe, you could definitely argue 190-191(6’3”) for this guy. I suggest you watch “Vikings” btw.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 28/Nov/17
Rob, is the 6’3” arguable? He doesn’t look shorter than 6’2.75” even with horrible posture.
Editor Rob: the 190cm is arguable, that's pretty close to 6ft 3...most would classify it as about 6ft 3
Ryan said on 15/Nov/17
Gustaf: 190.5
Bill: 191.5
Alexander: 194.2
Stellan: 1.91 peak and 1.88 now.

The list is good, he is a legit 6'2.75. If he looks taller is because we are accustumed the typical 6'1.5 actor clamin to be 6'3.
Anonymous said on 13/Nov/17
in all the pictures with gustaf, bill and alexander, gustaf always seems to edge out bill by atleast an inch
Junior said on 8/Nov/17

I agree it. Bill and Gustaf literally look same height and hardly edge each other. 6'3.25" a shout!
berta said on 24/Oct/17
this guy is definetely 191 cm. We cant alwayus trust what we read on resumes and stuff in a swedish paper couple years back they interviewed him and it was not a quote from him but is said he was 193 cm. and if is would say 193 cm on resume he wouldnt have been listed as it.
Slim 6' said on 16/Oct/17
@Editor Rob, we gave chris Hemsworth the full 6'3" despite having 190 cms on his resume. Can we please give gustaf the full 6'3" as well?
Slim said on 1/Oct/17
190 cm area. That's how tall he looked in Vikings compared to Ludwig and fimmel. Keep in mind Ludwig was growing throughout the show.
Celebheights 6'1.5 said on 29/Sep/17
Alexander Skarsgard is a legit 194 CM in person, and this guy typically appears 3-4 CM smaller. So anywhere from 190-191 CM is debatable.
Slim said on 29/Sep/17
Willes188 said on 15/Sep/17
Rob how about this?

Gustaf 190.5cm

Alex 194cm

Bill 191-191.5cm

Stellan 188-188.5cm now and 191cm peak

I think it's spot on.
99.9% agree.

by the way in that video its impossible to see 4 cm beetwwen him and alexander. this guy never stands tall but in that video he does it. i think there is a very very very small chanse that he is under 6´3 .
berta said on 7/Sep/17
Click Here this was a strange video. bill looks shorter than him with maybe 2 cm and alexander looks maybe 3,5 cm taller. if i didnt know better i would have thought alexander 194 bill 190,5 and gustaf 192 from looking at that video. We dont know what shoes they have so its impossible to judge from it

Given his footwear advantage the most I see for Alex Høgh Andersen is 5'11". What do you say, Rob?
Mark(5'9.5") said on 27/Jul/17
Like @berta said, he has extremely bad posture and still manages to look a good 190 cm. If he stretched up,
I think he'd be a real 6'3"-6'3.25".

I'd keep 6'3".
Animus said on 26/Jul/17
How tall would say Alex Høgh Andersen, the focal point of the next season of Vikings, is in this photo with Gustaf Skarsgard and Alexander Ludwig? He's listed as 182cm by Panorama Agency but that seems overly optimistic.
even said on 20/Jul/17
190 cm exactly .
Mark(5'9.5 said on 15/Jul/17
6'3" in my eyes.
S.J.H said on 12/Jul/17

Slim 181 cm said on 10/Jul/17
Might be a flat 6'3
Slim 181 cm said on 8/Jul/17
Definitely my ideal height, it's too bad I won't I reach it.
Slim 181 cm said on 8/Jul/17
I changed my mind, 190 cm on the dot!!!

6'2.75, aka weak 6'3.
Slim 5'11.5 said on 5/Jul/17
6 ft 2.5. just completed Vikings season 1, he's got a tall thin lanky frame like me and appears taller than he really is. I'm sure because last year i was 177 and I passed for 180.
Mark(5'9.25") said on 27/Jun/17
This guy could be taller than Tom Welling.
berta said on 18/Dec/16
he have bad posture ver y bad and looks 190 with it. i think when he really stand tall he is not under 191. alexander is strong 193 guy with very good posture and stellan was 191 and the last brother is beetween 191-192 with normal posture. this guy is always taller than alexander ludvig who is 189 and have good posture

Between 6'3 and 6'4 is his real height. No question
Alex said on 11/Jul/16
190 or 191 cm barefoot for him. In Vikings is fantastic. Great actor.
5'6 14 year old boy said on 9/Jul/16
I have meet Gustaf because Im from sweden to and I bet he is over 6'3 , I would say 191,5 - 193 cm
Pewdiepie said on 4/Jul/16
He's a strong 6'3.
Crane said on 30/Apr/16
A solid 6'2.75, could be even a 6'3 flat if he stand straight.

Rob, 18 seconds he fix the posture the difference falls tooClick Here

Gustav closer to camera. Alexander facing down a bit. I believe rob listing was accurate. He can't be over 6'2.75 and his elder bro is solid 6'4.5
berta said on 13/May/15
hm his younger brother bill was measured in the morning in a Movie check that out rob i dont remember witch i thin the name is " hur många lingon finns det i världen" ore somethin its in the beginnign. He is 192,5 either way and he and Gustaf looks about the same so i Think morning height for both those guys are 192,5 and evening 191. a Little taller than this

John,yes I agree with you
John said on 4/Apr/15
@ joe 193 night

You may be right, I couldn't tell with the angle. Not sure he's 192 as listed. Agreed that Gustaf has pretty poor posture, he slouches and can look three inches shorter than Alexander, but some pictures standing straight only looks and inch or so smaller.
joe 193cm night said on 3/Apr/15
John, thank you, but bill is a little shorter than gustaf
John said on 2/Apr/15
@ joe 193cm night

Those are useful pictures, much better than ones on Google. Assuming his brother Alexander is 194cm, I think a 190-191 is what he looks IMO. The third brother looks the same height as Gustaf.
joe 193cm night said on 28/Mar/15
Rob, he looks 6'3 but have bad postureClick Here
[Editor Rob: the 190 I still think is fine, it is what I would expect him to measure at.]

joe 193cm night said on 23/Mar/15
Rob, update it looks more like 6'3.25 (191) with its corrected postureClick Here
joe 193cm night said on 16/Mar/15
Rob, his father was listed as 193cm in talves agency measured the morning and peakClick Here
[Editor Rob: it's quite an optimistic listing, too much for him really, unless he has lost over an inch.]
John said on 5/Mar/15
Do not forget the metric listing of 6ft 3ins is often just 1.90m. It is not uncommon in Europe on acting sites, driver's licenses etc for people to write '6ft 3ins' but it gets converted to 190cm. For instance, my brother is between six three and four, but because he wrote '6'3" on his liscense, it was converted to 190cm. Not sure if this is Gustaf's case as some of Europe use meters even in conversation, but it's something to point out.
[Editor Rob: it's a Euro agency, they are using metric and have clients at various heights, 189cm being another guy they had.]
joe 193cm night said on 5/Mar/15
Rob, do you think it possible to measure 192.0 morning
[Editor Rob: 191-2 range straight out of bed is quite possible.]
billy said on 4/Mar/15
Could you do there younger brother Bill Skarsgard who plays the lead role in Hemlock grove. He's listed at 192 and I think that's right. Your Thoughts?
S.J.H said on 2/Mar/15
inherited the father height. Weak 6'3
joe 193cm night said on 1/Mar/15
I think Gustaf would be higher than the 6'3 chris Hemsworth's
Andrea said on 1/Mar/15
He looks max this listing next to Alexander and can look only 6'2 at times, maybe with worse posture... 190 and not over!
Arch Stanton said on 1/Mar/15
That Alexander's brother? Doesn't look as much like his father facially as Alexander does. Got the height though obviously.
Fern194cm-192cm said on 28/Feb/15
I think he is around 6,3.25 to be honest. He looks quite a bit taller than fimmel with bad posture in Vikings. If Fimmel is 5,11.5 then I can buy this listing for sure. However, if he is 6,0 as Rob has him listed, then I think that Gustaf is more like 6,3.25 (191 strong). He doesn't usually look more than 1 inch shorter than alex if posture adjustment is included.
John said on 28/Feb/15
Looks around 6'3" on 'Vikings', since he looks to edge out Alexander Ludwig. Rob, how tall do you think the actor Jefferson Hall is?
[Editor Rob: not looked at Hall]
joe 193cm night said on 27/Feb/15
photos with alexander he gets the bad posture
joe 193cm night said on 27/Feb/15
rob,I would say he is tall 6'3
