In the recent tv series North Water Jack appeared with Colin Farrell and Steven Graham (5'5")?. Shorter than Farrell (5'10"?). he was hired on as the whaling ship's surgeon on this doomed voyage. So, he went to his frozen, watery fate at a 5'7" max.

I watched skins and from just seeing him without the other cast would have guessed him to be 5’6.5 or 5’7. With the other cast members 5’8, because he wasn’t particularly shorter then most of them. I looked at the pics of him with James McAvoy and McAvoy does look a but taller, maybe just a cm, but he does look taller. But James was wearing shoes with a slightly bigger heel I think, so I am gonna go with 5’7 for both of them, but in the morning he might actually be 5’7.5.

@Ya a: No, he's 5'11! Click Here. Jokes aside, he seems like a comfortable 5'7.5 guy from what I've seen. Edging out McAvoy in less footwear should rule out 5'7 flat at least. I wouldn't be surprised if he measured near 172 cm.

Hi Rob
Iv been watching skins lately and I am wondering what the average height was during his generation for guys in the UK? Is he really short for his generation or just slightly under average?
Editor Rob
The average is 5ft 10 range for his age group then, so he's nearly 2.5 inches smaller. Probably would have been called 'short' by peers at times, although if you were under 5ft 7 you'd see it far more often.

I think 5’7 flat is closer to the truth.

🕯️🎂🎁 Happy 29th Birthday Jack! 🎁🎂🕯️

It seems like only yesterday that Jack was in his youth and situated in the controversial 'Eden Park'. What tempestuous reviews that movie came out to!

And now he already turns 29....

My boyfriend really rates Jack!

I am currently watching Jack O'Connell in his film 'Starred Up'!
He may be a few inches shorter than his fellow prisoners, but he bloody well doesn't lack in the swearing department! One day I'd like to settle down with a pen and paper and tick every time the 'f' word comes out of his mouth! I've done that sort of thing before, and very entertaining it was too! 😁
The sweary little gnome gets 5ft7.5 today!

Rob would you say Jack is closer to 5"7 than 5"8 I always thought he was a almost 5"8 guy and that surprised me when he wasn't 5"7 3/4. However I think he Gives a good impression of a decent 5"7er.
Editor Rob
5ft 7 I think is too low, a big 5ft 8 maybe too much, but 5ft 7.5-7.75, I think that could be very possible.
Sandy Cowell said on 24/May/17
My boyfriend Jim can't get enough of this actor! He turned me on to the film 'Starred Up', and I was impressed enough to buy a copy! Oh, and he is in the films '71', Harry Brown (fantastic!), and plays a more innocent than usual character in the film 'The Liability', where he gets bossed about by an irate and angry Tim Roth, contract killer extraordinnaire!
I will say that Jack doesn't come over as a small guy at all! He's very well made, and must work at it!
I shall go along with the 5ft7.5, though I would have believed an inch more out of him!

Met him years ago and was surprised he was under average height, I took a picture with my mate who was and still is 5'10. He wore these very flat white plimsoll/pump shoes that were in fashion then. My friend was slouching in the picture and wore thick soles but still looked quite a bit taller than him, I found the photo today and he looks 172cm ish, not quite 5'8 but almost.
Christian said on 17/Aug/16
He honestly look taller than this. In this b-roll he seems closer to 5'9''. Maybe his shoes added extra height? In the movie Money Monster I would have guessed his height as 5'8,5'' next to Clooney. Click Here

He looked short in Skins, roughly about 5'7-5'7.5 is correct.
NightCrawler said on 16/Mar/15
Rob, I think he's up for a downgrade: here he is with 175 Tom Hardy

Click Here

I see more than 1.5" difference and Hardy's posture is lacking AND O'Connell is in dress shoes. What do you think?
Shamrock said on 2/Mar/15

he edges out McAvoy (Click Here)
MD said on 12/Feb/15
I wonder how much of an advantage that would be, though? I'm guessing not 0.5". I think they are both just about equal in height, and that height is 5'7".
MD said on 10/Feb/15
With 5'7" James McAvoy:

5'7" flat.
Editor Rob
there's a fair number of them looking the same and one taller than the other, although I would point out that McAvoy's shoes have a higher rear leather section. At times I wouldn't be surprised if he wore the odd small lift.
Berek said on 11/Jan/15
Or more likely, Aces, you exaggerate your own height by 4 inches. Jack O'Connell would struggle with 5'11 even in platforms with internal lifts and a box. 5'7" seems most likely.
James Sinclair said on 10/Jan/15
By comparing pics between O´Connell and Dempsie, between O´Connell and Jolie, and finally between Dempsie and Rob, my humble conclusion is that O´Connell should stand around 5´8" (guess he´s slightly taller than Jolie and Dempsie, and around same height as Rob)

With 5'9 Tom hardy Click Here Rob he looks like 5'7 to me
Editor Rob
it is believable somewhere in 5ft 7-7.5 range, his shoes might be thinner than hardy sneakers. I know he can look shorter than jolie in heels aswell and this guy To the right of Jack in person is in 179 range.
MD said on 13/Nov/14
You met someone else named Jack O'Connell, then, because I doubt he'd even claim 5'11".
Aces said on 12/Nov/14
I've met the man once he was open and honest call it rude or brass but it's a great unique trait these days. I'm 5'11'' we stood eye level.
Sal said on 19/Jul/14
If he is 5.8,25 then Angelina Jolie is at least 5.7,25 Rob.

He always looked like a 5'7 guy to me

miko says: Weak 5'8 guy, and very arrogant from personal experience to boot!
Not surprised he has that face.

I think he hovers around 173-172cm.

He does mostly appear shortish or short, so not surprised about the listing.
