I KNEW I recognized Duncan Preston! He starred in 'Emmerdale' as Doug Potts, father to Laurel Thomas. I saw that his height had been taken recently, so he was highly likely to have been taller in his younger days. He's in his 70s now.

Next to Imelda, the sight was really rather comical!

Imelda's husband on an episode of ' 'Midsomer Murders' that I've been observing, without watching attentively, (Dead Man's Eleven) is even taller than her real-life husband, Jim Carter. He's the 6ft3 Duncan Preston, and Imelda comes well below his shoulder level.

5ft. 😁💐

She probably has lost more height as she aged.. Yes. She was 5 footer petit women when she filmed Harry Potter Order of the Phoenix for its Villain character Dolores Jane Umbridge back in 2006.

I'm an inch smaller and can't say I have ever felt claustrophobic around taller people. I may get the odd neck ache looking up though, lol

I saw her after the Sweeney Todd musical a couple of years ago. She was towered by everyone waiting for her. It must feel quite claustrophobic for someone as tiny as she. I didn't try to compare my height with hers (and couldn't see her shoes, anyway) so I couldn't say how tall she was to me but she's certainly very small.

Rob, could she be under 5'? There's plenty of photos of her at Getty from the HP5 premiere and she looks really, really, REALLY short, even in heels+big hair. Maybe her peak height was around 5'? She's already past the age when women start to shrink.
