I did [a pilot] that was really strange...It starred me and Joel Grey - I mean, there's a pair right there. I'm five foot nine and a half and he's four foot something.

She was described as 5'9 3/4 on Frasier but she actually looked a tad shorter than David Hyde Pierce in a few scenes on Frasier when they were both barefoot like the Ski Lodge episode.

If Bruce Greenwood is 5ft11, then she is 5ft 8.

Jane looks every bit her listed height! 🍂🍂!

The whole reason I found this discussion is because I noticed she was so tall, taller than Niles, way taller than Donny, I actually googled “Daphne Moon height”....I think all of you who think she’s shorter than Niles need to watch a few episodes waiting to see.

Id guess 5'8.5 to 5'9.

Just saw her on The Resident. She looked under 5'9 next to Bruce Greenwood.

i am going to say she is more 5 ft 8 inches perhaps 5 ft 7.5 and because she does wear heels she can be as tall as Niles on Fraiser.

CVmoreau, part of the reason Niles saw Daphne as a "goddess" is because of how statuesque she was.

rob how tall do those heels make her
[Editor Rob: I'd expect they'd give roughly 3 inch of height so almost 6ft 1 in them?]

No way strong 5'9 tops not taller than Hyde Pierce

It's strange, but I never really thought of "Daphne" as a tall woman. However, on "Hot in Cleveland" Jane Leeves' character, Joy, seems to tower over everyone else!

In season one, episode fifteen of Frasier, Niles claims that Daphne Moon (Jane Leeves character) is exactly "5'9 and 3/4".

Wendie malick looks really tall on just shoot me. 178cm easy. She prob lost height. Higher heels. 177cm.

5'10 sounds about right. She seems really tall in this new show on TVLand, but she's in high heels all the time, and Betty White is tiny by comparison.

she seems at least an inch taller than wendie malick who is supposed to be 5'10. omeone is lying or has gotten shorter.

She really isn't that much taller than Peri Gilpin. Since PG is listed everywhere at 5'7" I can't see her much over 5'9".

There are a few barefoot scenes between David Hyde Pierce an Jane Leeves throughout Frasier and honestly, he *does* look to be a tad taller. And on Seinfeld, I don't recall her looking anywhere close to 5'10" there either. 5'9" at most. I think she could use a downgrade.

its hard to tell leeves and pierces height as they both seem to wear shoes with a bit of lift in each episode. honestly I would say closer to 5-8 though

she often looks level with-if not taller than David Hyde Pierce on Frasier

She does look 5'10" on 'Frasier'. Actually she even mentions the fact in one of the episodes. Something about being fired from an acting job, reaching 5'10".

I think because she has a long toro and short legs, it seems like she's less than 5'10". However I think her height is right.

I remember her as Miles' girlfriend in Murphy Brown, yeah she looked about 5-10 then.

Funny. In the Episode of Seinfeld were she guest starred, she looked at least a solid 2 inches shorted than 180-181cm Jerry. Even if Jerry is closer to 181 and she's 177, it appeared to be greater than 4cm difference, closer to 6 cm. There's relative agreement that Seinfeld is as tall as 181, so I think she's closer to 175 or 5'9.

I'm five foot ten and because I'm aware of how my body looks proportionally, i find it easy to see that Jane Leeves is about the same height as me. Sometimes there's an awkwardness about her which I can relate to which tall people tend to have. It's as if she doesn't know what to do with her long limbs!
