5ft 7 ½ (171.5 cm)
English actor best known for roles in TV shows Skins (as Chris Miles) and HBO's Game of Thrones (as Gendry). He said "I am only 5ft 8in"
. In this photo I'm wearing ¾ inch Skechers
, whilst his shoes were around 1/3rd inch more thicker.

He is NOT overlisted!
You can see Joe with short hair near Alastair Petrie
You can also see why I estimate Petrie as a big 6ft 3 range guy, mark strong also in that photo.

BTW, looking a bit shorter than 5'7.5" Jack O'Connell even considering Jack's trying to gain height.

Looks like as recently as last month he's claiming 5'8", unless that quote above is from this interview:

Same as Rob when not considering 0.5" hair advantage and 1/3"shoe advantage.Legit 171 and quite handsome looks.
Nik said on 12/Nov/18
I think he can pull off 5'7.5"!

On the money Rob!

He is shorter than Jack O'Connell in photos of them together and yet Dempie's average guess is higher. Either Jack is 172 or Dempsie is 170, if not less.

Rob is 1.5 cm taller
Bobby said on 25/Nov/17
Looks the same height as Rob when factoring in the footwear advantage, but then the eye levels are different, so you know that Rob is naturally taller.

Right on the money!

5'7.25" for Gendry, 5'6.5" for Jon, how on earth did i think they were both 5'10" in the first episodes.

But Rob you're 5'8.5. And I don't see an inch of difference, I would put him at 5'8" even.
Editor Rob: I'd be right around 5ft 8 1/8th there. He looked under 5ft 8 and with me having a bit less sneaker, I think 7.5 is a reasonable estimate.
Fractions can get lost easy, just having the camera in front of Joe (as seen by his eyes looking straight ahead and mine at an angle), or my head being an inch further...easy to lose a cm this way!

Yeah 5'7"-5'7.5" range, why do they all look so tall on GoT!?
Mik said on 28/May/17
why are they saying his 5'9
World Citizen said on 26/May/17

I've just been watching him in the mini series 'Southcliffe', and though Joe looks below average height, he plays the part of a 'no one gets the better of me!' army hero. He is stockily built, which gives him that certain edge, but I didn't half notice that he wasn't very tall when I saw him with Sean Harris, who I reckon now to be a minimum of 5ft11.5, and 6ft out of bed!
I will agree with Joe's 5ft7.5. I thought he could even be slightly less - a quarter to half an inch! His girlfriend in this, though relatively petite, doesn't even have to go on tiptoe to kiss him!
Lovely friendly picture of him, but you can't help but notice the spiky hair!

Looking same height but with more footwear. So listing is fine, could buy a smidge more for him.

169 is said on 20/Jul/16
he could only say that at that specific moment in time where he has 1/3rd inch thicker shoes
Guest said on 7/Feb/16
He is kinda honest about his height since he's only rounding up an inch
Johno said on 5/Feb/16
plus said on 4/Jan/16
He looks 172 with that advantage in shoes

I found this quote from Joe about his height:
"Joe, who still has family living in Crosby and south Liverpool, admitted to being nervous. He said: “The fans are rabid waiting for this and they know exactly how they want their characters to look. Gendry is described as being tall and muscled, with thick black hair. I am hoping I can live up to two of those because I am only 5ft 8in! I am not really a gym person, but this has certainly got me going more often.”
[Editor Rob: ok thanks, I will just put in that 5ft 8 part.]

Looked exactly as listed on GoT.
Sam said on 17/Mar/14
Like Kat Harington and Alfie Allen, he looks shorter and slighter here than he does on screen.
said on 10/Mar/14
Is his head around 9,25 inches? That's not exactly small, but why does his head look so small in this video? Click Here
[Editor Rob: probably about 9 inches my German friend, he has about 3cm of hairdo before you'd hit his skull.]
Chris said on 10/Mar/14
Is it just me or does he have tiny ears?

He look short, but very strong, particulary in GoT.
