A tad below this maybe at worst

Paul Johansson could be the same
Tunman said on 27/Oct/20
Could be a little under his claimnot sure he's taller than Johansson.Also Tyler Hilton the guy who played Chris Keller is listed as 6'4 when he looked about the same as Lafferty perhaps 1cm taller max
HJ said on 21/Jun/20
he seemed an inch and a half taller than murray. wouldn't place him over 6' 1".

About 6'2 which could mean 6'1 3/4 or 7/8th. So he isn't full 6'2.
Jkiller said on 29/Jan/20

looked 'about' 3-4 inches shorter than joe manganiello in one tree hill that word again 'about' LOL. was looking 186cm in comparison with 195cm manganiello i'm talking about the part where they where in that basketball game with the trampoline
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Nov/14
187-188cm range is definitely 'about' 6ft2
cole said on 29/Dec/13
Doesn't look much over 6'1.5 with 6'4 Jared Padalecki. Do you think he could be more around that mark, Rob?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/13
"James Lafferty's height is 6ft 1.75in (187cm)"

Agreed. That word 'about' is a dead giveaway

He's 6'1.5". "About six two" = almost six two. Honest claim.

Does anyone know what episode that was where Lafferty got measured?

anonymous said on 9/Mar/09
He is 2 inches and a bit taller than chad michael murray who is 182cm. 6 foot 2. A foot is 30.5cm.
-_-_-(Hugh)-_-_-/ said on 24/Feb/09
Looked about 3 inches taller than Chad Michael Murray so 6ft2 is right. Myabe even 189cm.

fs98 said on 27/Jan/09
the first time he was measured in the ep he had shoes on, the second time he was not so its fake
Anonymous said on 19/Jan/09
He got measured twice, once on the river court with shoes, 6'2, and once at the combine, barefoot, 6'2 also. But it's a script height anyways, so you never know. IMO though, he looks no shorter than 6'1 and is probably 6'2.
Anonymous said on 18/Jan/09
no he didt in that episode his shoes were off u really didt pay that much attention dafty
imiliano said on 13/Jan/09
Also, has shoes (trainers) on in that episode - giving him at least half an inch!

Nate says on 2/Dec/08
On the newest ep of one tree hill, james is measures at 74 inches, 6 foot 2

its a script, he is measured twice in this ep and in reality there would be variations

Jesus, one foot is 30,5 cm ....makes 183+5...
Lx said on 10/Nov/08
i don't get it. one inch is 2.54 centimeters. and one foot is 30 centimeters. which means that 6'2" is 180 + 5.08 = around 185 cm. then why does it say 188?
Horton said on 28/Aug/08
Do you think that when he first started one tree hill he was shorter, like 6'1"? because he was around 17 at the time and looks to have matured a lot since then
a said on 19/Jul/08
186 or 187 cm
Chadis5'11or6' said on 12/Jun/08
Yeah mat16 you dunk the 10 feet ring! Or if you do on the 12 then you have major spring in your legs. But I know for a fact James really did those dunks on the 12 feet since the producers said so in the extras. They also add that James is an athlete in real life too, been playing basketball forever so..
Jimmy said on 11/Jun/08
He said himself "about 6'2" which means he's most likely 6'1.5 because if he was a legit 6'2.5 he'd probably say "about 6'3".
Emma said on 26/Mar/08
Heya guys.
Well when I went to Hemet to see his mum Angie, as she is friends with my dad Stu and Jamie were both there. Stuart is a tiny bit smaller than James, at 6'1 but Jamie is 6'2.5''. Its great. He was barely smaller than my dad who is 6'3''
Nc Manizzla said on 25/Feb/08
james lafferty is 6,2 almost 6,2.5 because chad is 6,0 solid i would know i live in North Carolina and i was an extra on the show And im 6,3 and james was barley shorter then me.
wqaes5467y68 said on 22/Nov/07
he deffinitely is at least 6'2. i was an extra on one tree hill last summer and when i stood next to him he was taller than me. i'm 6'1 and he had an inch on me, maybe even a little more. also chad is more like 6'0 or 6'0.5, not 5'11. when i stood by him he was only a tiny bit shorter than me
the man said on 22/Oct/07
james is deffintley 6,2 with basketball shoes on and chad micchael murray is 6,0 with basketball shoes on end of story i would no ive seen both of them together in person and im 5,11 and chad is taller then me and james is like 3 inches taller then me
mat16 said on 8/Oct/07
you don't need to be really tall to dunk ! i'm 5'11 and i dunk 2 hands easy so ... if you're training well and has a lot of impulsion ... why won't he be able to dunk if he was smaller ...
JS said on 31/Jul/07
James was asked about his height on a radio interview last fall (they were talking about how tall you have to be to dunk a basketball) and he said 6'1. No fudging, no "about". He came straight out and said 6'1, which seems about right. I doubt Chad is much more than 5'10.
Josh said on 30/Jul/07
6'1 the most.I cant believe people think chad is 6'0 James is 6'1 and has 2 3 inches on chad , When chad was in dawson´s creek theres a scene where hes barefoot with michelle williams and he looks 5'10 5´11 tops but never 6'0.
6'3'' JK said on 23/Jul/07
Chad Isn't 6'0'', he is really close to it though I would say 6'2'' for Lafferty and and 5'11.5'' for Chad he can also look 5'11'' at times
Viper said on 22/Jul/07
Hes got more than 2 inches on Chad. At least 3 to 3.5 inches at times. Chad is 5-10 1/2.
whatever said on 21/Jul/07
6'2 sounds right because he is taller then Chad and chad is siad to be 6 ft so noway could he be ny shorter!
Crissy said on 3/Jun/07
No 6'2 Sounds pretty good because he is taller than Chad Michael Murray who's like 6'0. I think he might be like 6'3
Realme said on 5/Mar/07
I actually watched an episode where Lucas was in scandals and Nathan was in basketball shoes, and he towered over Lucas who is 5'11". 6'2" sounds about right.
Anonymous said on 1/Mar/07
yo im 6ft4 nearly 5 hes bout 6ft2 two in that one tree hill serious he dunks it and does it easy no camera tricks nothing hes 6ft2 no way he could do that if he was any shorter not that easy any way later
Realme said on 24/Feb/07
Yeah, he's not that tall. He gets towered over a lot of basketball players in the show. He probably is that height when he puts on his basketball shoes for the show though. Basketball shoes can add more than the standard inch that normal shoes provide. He's about 6'0.5- 6'1"
THE TRUTH said on 16/Dec/06
can't be 6'2, probably 6-0.5, looked shorter than damien fahey on trl who is 6'2.
venus said on 9/Oct/06

Josh said on 12/Jun/06
