I take the liberty to ask,Rob, is there any chance he will grow to 6'0" in the next few years?! 🤔
Editor Rob
I'm not sure if he managed to hit a full 6ft, but is a possibility.

Looked pretty tall in 'Voyagers'. Around 182 anyway.
Jake: 1.84 m - 1.85 m said on 28/Jun/22
Looks a comfortable 5ft 11.5 here.
Eric W Tam said on 9/Jun/22
wonder what he claims today. Probably 6'0. Though he would really be not much over 5'11 and a bit.
Llewellyn said on 25/Dec/21
Mimi, those photos are from April 2019, the same period Rob took the pic with him. He was 20 though, so i wouldn't completely rule out a little gaining (1/4 of an inch)
Mimi said on 19/Oct/21
Rob I think he grew a bit more. Beside Sophie in 3-3.5 in heels, he's looking at least 6ft1 with the camera angle on his advantage.

@Rob Maybe he gained a fraction after you guys met?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 30/Aug/21
@ Mickie - Thanks for your reply. I distinctly remember on my 14th Birthday wearing clothes age 9-10, but I did a lot of shooting up that year. I was fully grown at around 15 and-a-half, though I might have squeezed out another half-inch, but I'm shorter now due to an accident and restricting my calories throughout my life.

My brother and many male friends didn't stop growing until their late teens, so your own growth pattern is very much a normal male one. 😁👍

5ft11.5 = Isaac!
Mickie said on 29/Aug/21
@ Sandy - I know guys who were done growing at 14, and others who grew until close to 20. But it seems like by 18 or so most are done growing and those who are not quite done are very close to their adult heights. I think by 18 I was full height 6' 3 3/8".
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 21/Apr/21
@ Mickie - You still grew after 15 but I must say that for boys it would be unusual not to. I don't know any women who've told me that they suddenly shot up in their mid-late teens, but loads of blokes.

Years ago, I looked at the mother of my 18-year-old boyfriend with utter disbelief in my eyes when she told me that 'no way' was her son fully grown yet. He was already 5ft11, but he had lots of filling out to do and other signs of development to embrace, and as one of them was beard growth, I could see her point of view. He probably grew another three-quarters of an inch.

My estimate for this guy? 5ft11.5. 😁
Mickie said on 15/Feb/21
He definitely kept growing significantly after age 15. I think for myself it was only another inch and a half or so after that age.
Jkiller said on 14/Dec/20
Guy is 5'11.25.
Ronaldo 185.5cm said on 11/Jun/20
@Darran What wow? Thats not a growth spurt anymore, i think the guy had it around 13-15yo. So 15 to 21 isnt a growth spurt anymore

@pov This guy grew normally. I grew 4 and a half inches after 15, which is 12cm. But keep in mind the fact that this guy said he was "about" 5'8 and most of the actors exaggerate their height a little bit, so he could have been less than 5'8 and of course, depending on how early 15s he said it.. If he said it in his late 15s he was propably a bit of a late bloomer not sure but maybe. BUt this guy doesnt look like a guy who exaggerates his height a lot, looks like a honest guy
Darran said on 11/Apr/20
Wow...that's one growth spurt....funny thing is that could have been a problem in the last season, getting so tall over such a short movie time frame. Obviously he was playing a cripple and did most of his scene either being dragged or on a wheel chair....You would never guess he was this height. Movie magic i guess.

He atually look solid 8cm on Rob. 5'11 1/2 is still fine.

Wow he grew 3 inches and some change after he was 15! I was 181cm at 15 and got to 184cm, didn’t grown since after 17.
185 said on 4/Sep/19
He’s on a slant pavement, he has all the advantage from that.
Questioner said on 1/Sep/19
@andrea he looks over 6'1" there... maybe even close to 6'2" unless hes wearing lifts sophie looks nowhere near her listing and instead 5'8" max but I dont want to believe she is that otherwise what does that make joe jonas
Monkey knees said on 12/Aug/19
Met him whilst filming the last GOT series, signing some release/image rights forms for work - im 5ft 11.75in morning height, and was surprised for Isaac to almost match me. Lot taller than 5ft 7.25in Kit Harrington, and at least 2 inches on Conleth Hill. Spot on.
185 said on 8/Aug/19
I’m grown 4-5 inches in around late 15 to late 17 and another cm (1/4 inch i guess) in around age 19 haven’t grown much since about 18 to now 20. He is older than me, i don’t think that he can grown much more, probably done growing like me.
khaled taban said on 23/Jun/19
@Redwing, How?
You are a legend 😂😂
At 18 I was 173cm, now I am 20 and 175cm, I think I will never grow taller 😔💔
Sofia said on 25/May/19
I’m pretty sure he’s grown a lot in the past months, he’s definitely likely to be 183-185 cm can see that in the recent photos from GOT 8 premier where he’s standing taller next the GOT cast. It looks like this kid is still growing so we have to wait to confirm his final height. I’d like to see an updated pic with you and Isaac 😊
jayp said on 19/May/19
@redwing hey just wondering did you grow taller in your 20s?
Adrian K said on 18/May/19
I love the way your beard is looking in this Rob!
Editor Rob
A beard almost fit for the Iron Throne 😏
nymph7 said on 4/May/19
I guess you are joking when you say his head is small, or maybe you are referring to his face, because with regards to his cranium the most striking thing is not its low height but its noticeable width, which can mess up perception.
And please, don't compare anybody's head with Kristian Nairn's, he has to own one of the largests in human history
Editor Rob
head length for 5ft 11 range I'd say was less than average.
Redwing said on 4/May/19
@Greg: I’m not sure tbh, 18 yrs old I was about 180 cm maybe i didn’t measure myself correctly lol my mum is 5’3 and dad never met him but got told 6 feet. Had ty sleeping patterns too, but changed stuff up abit. I’m 187 cm now
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/May/19
Alot of teenage boys did not grow any taller after 15 or 16 of age nowadays. Not sure is it due to personal lifestyle affected like lack of sleep, sleeping late and lack of better nutrition. I have a cousin who stop growing at 15 but he is lucky to hit 6'3 while his dad stop growing at 18 who was also 6'3, strange that if my cousin stop growing taller at this early stage while if he still grow after 15 would have being 6'5 to 6'7 range now. Isaac is lucky to grow from 5'8 to 5'11.5" after 15.
Redwing said on 1/May/19
He grew 8 cm from 15 that’s pretty good man; good for him; I wonder what he claims now Rob? I was 172 cm at 17 lol now I’m over 6 feet, I grew 15 cm since.
Mimi said on 27/Apr/19
He's 20 now and wow he still had a considerable growth after 15
Nik said on 26/Apr/19
@ Dimond - I don't think that it's likely!
179cm guy said on 26/Apr/19
Rob, could Isaac have reached his current 5'11.25-11.5 range by the time these pictures were taken at the Jameson Empire Awards in March 2015? Isaac would have been turning sixteen just a couple of days later. He's seen standing next to Thomas Brodie-Sangster whom you've said could be 5'10.5-10.75: ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here ) ( Click Here )
Editor Rob
I don't think he was quite at the height he is today, but he could have been not much different than Thomas, maybe closer to 180cm.
Dimond said on 26/Apr/19
Less than 5'11.5" is impossible for him.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 25/Apr/19
Looks 5'11.25" at best.
179cm guy said on 24/Apr/19
The average guess is closer to his true listing given that he looks slightly closer to 5'11 than 6'0, but 5'11.5 is not an egregious listing by any stretch of the imagination. He is a strong 5'11, solid 181cm range guy just like Cumberbatch and DiCaprio who all fall into that 5'11.25-11.5 range. He would easily hit 6'0 in shoes.
TheBat said on 24/Apr/19
Crazy how much he's grown! Looks very spot on with the listing and at barefoot he's an inch taller than me.
Nik said on 24/Apr/19
5'11.5" is a big possibility!
Kristian 5'11 said on 23/Apr/19
"You're a man"
Jake: 1.84 m- 1.85 m said on 23/Apr/19
Tall looking bloke now. 5ft 11.5 for Isaac is accurate.
afzal said on 23/Apr/19
5.10 and half
Oneiroi said on 22/Apr/19
5'11.75 and he can look 6ft 0 some times.
World Citizen said on 22/Apr/19
Another centimeter again :D
Almost 180cm said on 22/Apr/19
rob if im 179-180cm what's my eye level,i want to hear it from you cuz ur an expert
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Apr/19
He was still listed 5'11 flat on many places. I trust Rob and think he could be this tall.
Editor Rob
Well he's over 5ft 11, but in person not over 5ft 11.5.
Jdubbz said on 21/Apr/19
I always think of this guy as the short little kid from the first few seasons. Crazy that he's taller than a good proportion of the actors these days.
Tunman said on 21/Apr/19
yeah,20 indeed.I guess there's always a chance he's growing but still unlikely imho.With Rob he could look a strong 181.If ever Rob meets him next year we will be fixed about any further growth.
Andrea said on 21/Apr/19
Nice (and way faster than I thought, 😀)! 👍
To be honest, he doesn't look much over 5'11 here, and in fact I'd say a guy like Big Adam does look taller next to you (and that's before considering the fact that you were taller with him than you probably were here!), but I have no problem believing he's 5'11+, especially in most recent photos like this one Click Here , where he completely towers over Kit and looks comfortably taller than Sophie in heels (although he probably has a bit of a camera advantage there)... Is it possible he has gained another fraction since you met him? If you see him with Jimmy Kimmel recently, maybe not really: Click Here
Editor Rob
Yeah Kimmell at times can look near 6ft in promo photos with guests, other times not so.

In person, I think Isaac is a tricky guy, because he doesn't have a long head and being skinny helps give off a taller look than an average framed guy would. I'd have put his range and would expect he could measure in 5ft 11.25-11.5 range.
Andrea said on 21/Apr/19
Well, that's right around the range I would have expected him to be with those people, but the question is, when did you meet him? And, is it possible he has gained another fraction since then?
Btw, I know you follow some specific "marketing strategies" (and I'm quite sure it is no coincidence you put up Conleth's pic in this period), but since you mentioned it, do not wait too long for Isaac's... 😜
Editor Rob
Since GOT is on just now, I have the other 3 folk to add, so watch this space.
Andrea said on 19/Apr/19
Actually, he just turned 20 (not 21), Tunman. Not impossible he's a late bloomer, I guess, but I'm not sure about that. A few months ago I certainly wouldn't have guessed him much over 181 with Tom and Gwendoline, yeah...
Editor Rob
In person Isaac looks right in the middle between how tall Big Josh and Big Lewis look in person, so somewhere in 181 zone. Taller than Misha collins 😆
Andrea said on 17/Apr/19
He does look pretty tall there, and in other recent photos such as this one Click Here , though a few months ago he still looked comfortably shorter than someone like Tom Wlaschiha Click Here , so unless he had another, late (he's 20 now) growth spurt, I doubt he's 6' (let alone over)...
One thing I'm sure of is that his small head and slim frame can make him look taller than he is.
Ivor said on 14/Apr/19
No way he's less than 6ft in 2019, looks 6'1 to me?
Click Here
3467 said on 19/Mar/19
it's so weird to think that little cute bean from first season is now taller than jon, theon, robb etc...
World Citizen said on 23/Nov/18
He is upgraded another centimeter haha
Animus said on 14/Oct/18

His torso already looks quite long compared to his height, so it's unlikely he'll grow a substantial amount, i.e. more than ¼ inch, since the legs typically stop growing before the torso.
Pauly DJ said on 9/Jul/18
He may still be growing so my opinion is that he definitely has a chance to be over 6 ft for sure.
6footTom said on 23/Jan/18
Rob, what do you make of this photo?

Click Here

I think if Iain Glen straightened up his posture, they could look very similar. Isaac looks like he could be about 6ft today.
Editor Rob
He can look in 5ft 11 range
Iffy said on 11/Oct/17
Seeing his recent photos, he could even be above 6'0
Robin said on 5/Sep/17
@Michael if 6'0-6'1 is average then what about 5'9-5'10? Short? No it's average, 6'0-6'2 is above average or on the tall side.
Mr Thompson said on 24/Aug/17
He is 6'0 surely in 2017
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 21/Aug/17
Looks 3.5" taller than a 5'7.75" John Bradley in 2017, so about 5'11.25" now for Isaac. I think he's grown a bit. But no way he's 6'0" let alone 6'1"
Nikolai said on 18/Aug/17
5'11.75 at least, 6ft 0 is a better guess.
John Davis said on 13/Aug/17
@Micheal how is 6ft and 6ft 1 average height?
Gladis said on 8/Aug/17
1.82 or 1.83 in 2017, tall kid
lelman said on 4/Aug/17
You still convinced he's under 5'11 rob? To me he looks close to 6ft
Capheus said on 1/Aug/17
He looks 6ft 0in actually, this picture is from 2017 with John Bradley Click Here . He is pretty tall now.

Rob, How do I put a image like the rest of the members?

Hans Meiser said on 21/Jul/17
I agree. I'm 182cm.
Michael said on 7/Jul/17
182 to 185 cm is a good average height. Not too short and not too tall.
John said on 10/Apr/17
He's about 6ft 0in (183 cm) now.
Ben said on 10/Mar/17
How tall do you think he'll be at 21? I think he'll be about 5'11.5"?
Editor Rob
he could be near 5ft 11 now, but whether he grows more I don't know.
mrtguy said on 19/Feb/17
His head is so small, seeing him next to Kristian just tells me his head is not much over 8 inches.
Raven said on 8/Feb/17
LOL, this boy grew up a lot, now he is tall and I never realized that because in Got he always is seated or with Kristian Nairnm, who is more tall than everybody.
mrtguy said on 1/Feb/17
Rob, don't you find it quite ironic that Isaac grew taller and Kristian is shrinking and is going through a growth splurge??
Editor Rob
he's stealing Hodor's height!
DEREKK said on 4/Dec/16
5ft 10inches
lelman said on 10/Sep/16
He looks more than 1.5 inches taller than Conleth Hill
mrtguy said on 30/Aug/16
Rob, don't you think he looks 5'10'' at most, being skinny and having such a small head plays a big role into looking taller??
Editor Rob
I think he can look taller with a very skinny build.
lelman said on 18/Aug/16
Think it might be time to upgrade him to 5'11.5"

Click Here
Editor Rob
Cunningham looks to really never stand great, he's dropping 3cm a lot of the time. Isaac might be nearer 5ft 11 though now.
some random guy said on 4/Jul/16
He looks tall anyway,i was 177 exactly when i was 16 years old now im 20 and almost 6 ft(182-183).I think i will eventually get to a solid 6 ft.This guys looks like he can get to a 6ft or 6'1,who knows.
Jack said on 27/Jun/16
How tall do you think he'll grow to be? I've gained about 2 inches since I turned 16 (was 184cm then, 189/190 now, depending on when I get out of bed)
Editor Rob
at his age I don't know, I will check again next year.
lelman said on 20/Jun/16
Even accounting for the uneven pavement, he is a fair bit taller than Sophie Turner. I think flat 5'10" is unfairly low for him, he really does strike me as a 5'11" guy nowadays.
jonsnow said on 13/May/16
But he absolutely towers Sophie Turner by atleast 4 inches, with comparable footwear and posture, and Sophie Turner is listed here at 5ft8,75. So a 5ft10 listing is pretty ridiculous, but I guess it's tricky to list people who are growing. Click Here
Editor Rob
the pavement will be higher on his side, I'm sure he could be somewhere in 5ft 10-11 zone now, but I doubt he is 6ft this moment.
Andrea said on 13/May/16
I don't know... Even a 6'1 listing wouldn't explain how he can look so close to Isaac's height!
Look at this picture: Click Here
This is not even close to a 3 inches difference, let's be real!
And that guy was a big 6'4 when young???
Editor Rob
the ground isn't exactly the most level, but I doubt Isaac is near 6ft there.
Andrea said on 12/May/16
Lol, i was going to laugh at the 6'1.5 estimate but i didn't know you had the guy who plays the Three-Eyed Raven on here listed at 6'3...
These guys have a point, he doesn't look that much different than him, Rob!
So or Isaac is considerably taller than 5'10 now or that Von Sydow guy is a lot shorter than 6'3!
Lol, i thought that guy (Max) was average range, watching GOT!
Editor Rob
at 86-87 he's now shrunk more, probably 6ft 1 range today.
jonsnow said on 12/May/16
My estimate for his current height would be 6ft1 1/2
anon said on 10/May/16
He looked almost the same height standing next to 6'3 Matthew Von Sydow in the latest Game Of Thrones Episode.
jonsnow said on 1/May/16
here he looks 6ft+ compared to 5'8,5'' sophie turner Click Here
5'11guy said on 28/Apr/16
I saw him once and i was like 3 meters from him, he is quite the same height as me except he had 0,5 inches sneakers thicker than mine so maybe 5'10.5 sounds right
as said on 24/Apr/16
Rob, how tall do you think he is now and do you think he will still grow?
Editor Rob
I think he gained in the last year and is more 5ft 10 range, how much more he might gain I don't know.
AJ said on 8/Apr/16
Ya this listing looks fairer.
lelman said on 7/Apr/16
Definitely a worthy upgrade. Doubt he will grow much from here but hey he might reach 179-80.
lelman said on 8/Mar/16
Click Here

Proportionally he looks taller than this, and he looks around 5'10" in red carpet photos from last year. Do you really think he is only 5'9"?
Editor Rob
haven't seen anything lately but he may well have gained a bit more by now.
ggame ofthrones said on 12/Feb/16
HeS as tall as max sandoe update his height. If hes only 6 thrn so is sandow
Rey said on 17/Jan/16
In this photo, he looks a bit Paul Dano, he even has that weird torso-leg ratio, but younger and IMO cuter.

Here in this recent article he is being described as "nearly six feet": Click Here
Mary said on 10/Oct/15
I met Isaac at an event last month. He is taller than my boyfriend, I think he's close to 6ft.

Rob, do you think he's still growing?
Editor Rob
he might gain a bit more.
Jake said on 7/Aug/15

he could be close to 5ft 10 now.

"Odd, but you see his torso and profile and you'd swear he was a lanky 6 ft 3-6 guy! If you hide his legs you'd think he'd be over 6'4! "
Sam said on 27/Jul/15
Arch, I think his legs look way too short even for a tall guy with long torso and relatively short legs, which is my sort of build.
Pedro said on 25/Jul/15
I think he is slightly taller now than 5'9".
Here is a vídeo where he is standing next to a few GoT cast members. He looks much taller than Kit Harington, a bit taller than Thomas Brodie-Sangster and slightly shorter than Liam Cunningham: Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 25/Jul/15
You see that sort of face and torso on a young Jeff Goldblum geeky type!
Arch Stanton said on 25/Jul/15
