Guy Henry's Height
6ft 3 ½ (191.8 cm)
English actor known for playing Henrik Hanssen on Holby City and for roles in Rome, John Adams, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and V for Vendetta. In Journal Live, November 2001 it mentioned: "Guy Henry claims not to know his true height. It could be 6ft 2ins but he agreed it was more likely to be 6ft 4ins"
. In this photo, I had nearly 0.4 inch more sneaker than Guy.

To be fair to Caruso Victor, many people make that mistake. They say a head taller because of eyelevel when in reality its more 5 inches. If he was in socks or flip flops thats again 0.5/1 inch advantage to Guy so it might have looked 6 inches difference when in reality was more 4-4.5 inches due to the footwear.
So Guy looked like a 6'4"-6'4.5" guy to him when he is 6'3.5" in reality. Thats not that extreme a guess.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Jul/19
Yeah, there's no way that Guy Henry's 6'5" let alone 6'6". Caruso either overestimated Henry's height or he's not 6'0" like he claims.
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 23/Jul/19
@Caruso Victor Half a head is simply 5" and 6" is a little more than half, 7-8 inches is 3/4 of a head (most 6'3 and taller guys have standard 9.5-10" head). If you're 6'0 then he is 6'5 but he isn't more than 6'3.5" which you were not over 5'10.5" (179cm) barefoot.
Caruso Victor said on 11/Jun/19
@Gabitava...apologies. Half a head, not full head
Caruso Victor said on 9/Jun/19
Ok I’ve just checked through old pictures and indeed, even in my flip flops I reach his nose. So half a head not s head. @Gabitava...I bow to your excellent knowledge of height.
Caruso Victor said on 9/Jun/19
Gabitava, you could well be right in your assessment. I was often in socks or flip flops due to being an unspoken hospital patient while he was always in shoes with heels. My bad...I didn’t take that into consideration
Gabitava said on 8/Jun/19
@Caruso Victor, so you Said that he's head is 6 inches? Thats impossible or you didnt measure you accuretly, if you are a real 6 ft you would be like in he's forehead.
Caruso Victor said on 4/Jun/19
I would say he’s close to 6’6. I was an extra on Holly City and I often stood next to him. I’m a good 6ft tall and he’s a good head taller than me
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 16/Feb/19
Hairline and the top of the head are two different things. Rob's hairline's around 5'6.5" but does that mean he's 5'6.5"? Of course not.
burnitdownhomies said on 16/Feb/19
Probably would only be around 6'2.5 without hair.
Nik said on 14/Nov/18
@ Sandy Cowell - That's true! He wouldn't tower over me if I wore 8.25" heels either!
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Nov/18
@ Nik - But he wouldn't tower over me with my ⭐️ New Height ⭐️ - plus 13.75" heels as well!
Nik said on 12/Nov/18
@ Sandy Cowell - I do too! Guy Henry would tower over me even more than he does Rob!!!
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Nov/18
Now THAT'S what I call a towering!
Guy can have 6ft3.5.
Nik said on 13/Sep/18
I think said height is fair!
said on 4/Jul/18
@Rob could you add a height chart ?
And how much do you think he is droping ?
I think he's standing very well there.

Rob i remember on holby city a patient called him "BFG"
Well, he is over 6ft 3 and relatively friendly on the show.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 2/Jan/18
I'm not surprised he would claim 6'4" since he would be rounding up by half an inch.
He's definitely slightly taller than Lars (Who I think isn't under his 'Peak' listing).
He gets 6'3.75". 6'3.5" at worst since he has less sneakers.
Jason said on 14/Dec/17
said on 10/Nov/17
I was thinking 6'4 for this guy.
Editor Rob: he did used to downgrade his height, listed himself at 6ft 2 for years.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 25/Oct/17
Rob, It would be nice if this guy would tip toe with Ray Fisher! XDDD
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Dec/16
192-193cm for me is more feasible than 191-192cm
Dominic said on 16/Dec/16
Worked with him many years ago at the RSC. I'm 6'5 and he was just a tiny bit shorter than me so I would guess 6'4
S.J.H said on 11/Nov/16
I did say guy henry is a 191 plus guy pushing 6'3.75 just few mm taller than lars mikkelsen
Aza said on 27/Oct/16
He looks 6'3.5 in pick with Rob. Initially thought taller but after taking away his hair... yep its a good listing!
Mark said on 27/Oct/16
Umm... I think 6'3.75" would be better because he had less footwear than you Rob.
Jordan87 said on 11/Oct/16
With Rob he is 6'2 3/4".
said on 19/Nov/15
Robinson barely reaches his mouth and also had an advantage of 1cm
said on 22/Oct/15
6'3.25 possible rob?
[Editor Rob: I think 6ft 3.5 is probably the best fit]
TJE said on 10/Jul/15
If Rob and Guy had equal footwear, the difference would be identical with the difference between Rob and Height Challenger 13.
BigZ said on 11/Sep/14
I don't know my height because it always changes. He probably said that because he doesn't care. Chill lol
Tommo said on 5/Jun/14
Looked very tall in Extras compared to Gervais, but I'd still say Merchant had around 4 inches on him.
LG69 said on 27/Nov/13
Solid 6'3"...maybe 6'3.5".
Matt 184.7-186.7cm said on 6/Oct/13
Nose on your head makes him look tought over 6ft 3, with the shoe adv 6ft 3.5 potentially more..?
Mathew said on 4/Sep/13
It's really bizarre he claims to "not know" his own height. I mean, it's not that hard to measure someone.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Jul/13
Again, like I said about Obi Ndefo. He looks taller than guys listed here at 6"4".
avi said on 16/Jun/13
nice Rob you have this? he is definitely 6'3.
Jeff vale said on 3/May/13
can be tricky to get heights correct but he looks around 6'3 - 6'4
Stephen said on 8/Jan/13
legit tall guy! easily 191
Iron Fist said on 25/Nov/12
He looks 6'3" to me.
jasper186cms said on 19/Nov/12
A legit 192cms..!!
Editor Rob said on 20/Oct/12
yeah christian, he seems to not have been measured or 'forgot'.
said on 18/Oct/12
I worked with Guy Henry for two weeks on an episode of "Holby City" here in Stockholm. I asked him in person how tall he was and he said "i think I am 6'4', I dont really know".
Here is a video of him on set when we celebrated his birthday.
Mathew said on 21/Aug/12
6'3.5" is a fair listing.
mike 6 feet out of bed
said on 28/Jul/12
Rob I am seeing 6 4.5 here...
[Editor Rob: how tall do you see the Young Guy in comparison
one thing I'm sure of is that Henry in person didn't look taller than the young almost 6ft 3.5 chap does in person.]
Anonymous1 said on 16/Jun/12
Yeah, I'd say 6'3.5 is spot on.
James said on 29/Jan/12
just goes too show u how tall 6'3.5 is
Josh B said on 15/Jan/12
@steven don't forget Guy's footwear disadvantage
Steven said on 11/Jan/12
a good picture to judge height. with a straight line draw on rob tip head link to guy, it looks more like 17cm apart from rob. rob was likely 5'8.1 so added 0.4 advantage rob = 5'8.5(174) so add on 17cm, guy is 6'3.25 barefeet. 6'3.5 a little chance.
LAN Jiao said on 25/Oct/11
Probably he was like jeff goldblum height today, between 192-193. Hover 192.5cm
said on 1/Oct/11
rob, the little tip hair of yours taken away Guy would look more like 6'3.25 did he look a little taller in real?
[Editor Rob: i think he was near enough 6ft 3.5 to then be near 6ft 4 with the shoe disadvantage he had]
LAN Jiao said on 28/Sep/11
i don understand paragraph above "In Journal Live, November 2001 it mentioned: "Guy Henry claims not to know his true height. It could be 6ft 2ins but he agreed it was more likely to be 6ft 4ins". "
Guy was every bite of 6ft3 with you! did not look under 6ft3 and look 6ft3.25 alot. even 6ft4 claim can accept if he was only 6ft4 out of bed. i believe he is 192cm in real
Mathew said on 26/Aug/11
He's 6'3.5" in the pic with footware accounted for, 6'4" is definitely plausible and a decent listing.
said on 20/Aug/11
Actually Obi Ndefo, whose listed here as 6"3.5(192cm) looked taller with Rob than Guy does...
Would 6"3 range be nearer, Rob?
[Editor Rob: well I think both of them were men with good posture, but there's nearly half inch difference in footwear remember!
Tyron said on 18/Aug/11
He is a reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln O_O
Hansen said on 9/Aug/11
funny that rampage like to bring up people height here. really lose out at judging height. guy henry was only 6ft3.25 here picture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Aug/11
Looks 193.4cm or a little over 6ft4 in the pic.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Aug/11
Rob, this guy looks at least 194cm
random guy said on 3/Aug/11
looked very tall in harry potter
Lenad is sexy said on 2/Aug/11
if rob has a 1cm footwear advantage then i would say 6ft4 is accurate for Guy
avi said on 1/Aug/11
he is 6'3 Rob. yes maybe 6'3 and a quarter or 6'3.4 but he cant be a legit 6'4. Baldwin would have him by almost half an inch. if i were him i'd say 6'3 as my height.
Hansen said on 1/Aug/11
"180cm says on 30/Jul/11
pretty tall, towers over rob.
no shorter than 192, he does look 193cm and imo he might even be 194-195cm."
he is dead on 192cm at most , flat 6ft3 at lowest
said on 31/Jul/11
I love how you know the exact different between footwear.
[Editor Rob: If I know the make of footwear and have measured the style before I can say pretty much how much difference.]
said on 31/Jul/11
rob would you agree that this guy is like jeff goldblum in appearence and general build?
[Editor Rob: maybe a little, tall and thin...]
180cm said on 30/Jul/11

jtm said on 30/Jul/11
6'3.5 at his worst.
thorterr said on 29/Jul/11
well he did say 'true height' which is when we get measured by either a doctor or at a fitness gym theyll say your height to the nearest inch i suppose,i mean its like someone not knowing their weight when they were born ,,,,we all know that right?
Hansen said on 28/Jul/11
rob, your comparison shows him around 190.5cm , he could't be 6ft3.5 while he stood straight enough next to you. maybe he can reach to meet about 191.0cm max. footwear disadvantage could hardly tell if he had extra shoe insole or not. he certainly looks 6ft3 in film.
5'8.56784 said on 28/Jul/11
Yep, this guy looks at least 192cm.
said on 28/Jul/11
Rob, can you put a compare photo of Guy with Obi Ndefo, it'll show that guy's a legit 6"4 as he looks either taller or the same with footwear disadvantage.
[Editor Rob: Here is a comparison
my guess when I saw him walking about and beside a crew member was around 6ft 3, but then he had less sneaker so 6ft 3.5 range made sense, I then saw that quote and thought he's maybe nearer 6ft 4 than some actors who have claimed 6ft 4.
Obi did say 6ft 3 for his height but then he looked more than an inch taller than chris judge on stargate...]
Hansen said on 27/Jul/11
if rob had same height footwear. that makes him legit 6ft3 , not over it. he could be taller than adam baldwin by 1cm compare next to rob.
Maximus said on 25/Jul/11
Doesnt know his true height....strange...most everyone knows their true height....well, true height is without shoes.
rob89 said on 25/Jul/11
Hmmm not too sure about 6'4", let alone the 6'5" - 6'6" a few here seem to think LOL. IMO he really looks around 6'2.5" with shoe disadvantage, so basically 6'3" without it. Possibly 191 cm max, but a legit 6'4" i just can't see, sorry.
Alex said on 25/Jul/11
Could be like 6'3 3/4? Hes nothing under 6'3 1/2 in this picture. Looks 7 inches taller than Rob plus the shoe advantage it would be like 7.5 inch difference.
Mathew said on 25/Jul/11
Yeah he looks a good 6'3" here but I don't see 6'5" - 6'6" at all.
short man syndrome said on 25/Jul/11
he looked huge in Extras, he's definitely at least 192cm.
said on 25/Jul/11
But Rob I thought 7.5 inches was from lower lip..?
[Editor Rob: generally in the 7-8 inch range, it depends on the length of your head. 7.5 inches is around my own mouth range, but in that photo a bit of camera advantage can make a 5ft 8 person appear a fraction under mouth.]
said on 25/Jul/11
Rob, he could look 6'5, since he already looks like a strong 6'4 even with a slight disadvantage. He certainly don't look anything below 1.92cm. Huge dude.
[Editor Rob: it's certain he had 0.4 inch less sneaker, but then he has a better camera advantage (the top of my head is further from the camera than his nose/mouth area)...
here is a similar shot at same camera height which is an actual 7.5 inches
if I can come up a little above Guy's mouth, but an actual 7.5 inch difference can be shown to come a bit below a man's mouth, it is very possible I could stand beside a 6ft 3 man and be at his mouth...
Mathew said on 24/Jul/11
He's 6'3" in the pic. 6'3.5" should be his listing because there could be a footware advantage in Rob's favor of .4", putting him up to nearly 192 cm.
Ras said on 24/Jul/11
Well if we take into account Rob has got slight footwear advantage then 6'4" sounds right, perhaps 6'3.75" but not less.
Alex said on 24/Jul/11
Could be 6'4 but looking at it more closely I may have to go with 6'3 1/2.
Truthman said on 24/Jul/11
Rob look like a midget on this photo.
Danimal said on 24/Jul/11
How can a grown man not know his own height?
said on 24/Jul/11
He looks 6'6" on this pic. Come on, 6'4" is ridiculous.
that's about 7 inches (5ft 8 and 6ft 3) with the same height camera as in the shot on this page.
in fact he could be 6ft 3.5 in fact, my guess was 6ft 3 for him but I had more sneakers...]
Moke said on 24/Jul/11
Not sure he's 6'4 but a strong 6'3, no doubt.
James said on 24/Jul/11
knew he was this tall. Huge
Larc 6 ft 1.75 in said on 24/Jul/11
Oh god...he's huge, looks at least 6'4, to not count he's in slight disadvantage, he can be closer to 6'5 if you count also his big hair.
Barbarossa said on 24/Jul/11
6ft 4.5in here
