John's Nick Cotton WAS guilty of the murder of Eddie Royle. The way he stood there in Court - grinning! Yet his poor Mum, Dot, stuck by him, even though he'd try to finish her off too. 😝

It's Dot I feel for.

The two guys who led Nick into Court must have been nearly John's father's height! They made his 5ft11 look quite tiny!

John also had a bit part in the film 'Scum', which went round the cinemas together with 'Quadrophenia', if my memory serves me correctly!

Shouldn't John be added to the 'EastEnders' page Rob? Thanks! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

He was also in 'Quadrophenia', playing eh... hmm... a guy called John!

John makes no bones about being 5ft11. I always thought he looked much younger than his years in 'EastEnders', which didn't exactly tally with the part that he played! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Whenever You Think That John Altman's Height Is 5 Feet And 11 Inches, It Means That He Is 180.4 Centimetres Tall.

I felt it was the end of an era when they wrote John's character 'Nick Cotton' out of EastEnders. It's pleasing to see him being so candid about being a full 5 inches shorter than his 6ft4 father.
I always thought he looked much younger than his years, from the moment EastEnders kicked off in 1985!
Didn't I notice him in the film 'Scum'? I think I did, you know!

I saw John Altman recently performing in a play in Sussex and in the car park prior to the performance, I think 5'11 is about right. He was a couple of inches shorter than co-star Peter Blake who appeared to be about 6'1 - 6'2.
