John Hannah's Height
5ft 9 ½ (176.5 cm)
Scottish Actor best known for roles in film such as Sliding Doors, The Mummy trilogy, Four Weddings and a Funeral and TV series Spartacus. From Jane magazine on filming Gwyneth Paltrow's Sliding Doors movie: "John, who is 5 foot 10, had to wear lifts during the close-ups, but took it as a compliment. "I was like, 'Wow, I've arrived,' because there woulda been a time in my career where they just woulda got a taller actor," John brags. "They were worn by Tom Cruise, so I kept them."
John himself said in The Guardian newspaper "I wouldn't mind being a bit taller - I am 5ft 10in"

I think he can be closer to 5'10 like 5'9.75" not sure a full 5'10. I'll go with .75 for John Hannah.

Wearing the same lifts as tom cruise? Nice I'm putting that on my list of things to do. Back to the guys height, in Spartacus he doesn't wear the sandals the gladiators do he is wearing rather large heels... it's awkward, and even Whitfield in sandals still edges him out.

He seems closer to 176, Whitfield in sandals towers him, while this guy wears heels/large shoes, for real.
Slim 182 cm said on 7/Jul/17
TBH I guess him 5"8-59.25 while watching Spartacus. I'm consideration, Whitfield wore sandals while this guy wore much larger footwear with heels possibly.

Met him this week end. He is below 5'9 for sure, maybe even 5'8.5. I was surprised.

He could look close to Hugh Grant's height in FW&AF

So rob trevor eve could be 5'11 flat today?
[Editor Rob: he might be at a stage where he's lost a bit of height.]

Rob how tall does trevor eve look compared to john Hannah given his hair advantage?
[Editor Rob: your link didn't work but This photo?
maybe 1.5 inch.]

Rob, you can also add Four Weddings and a Funeral to that list...
Grant could look near 2in on him
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jul/14
Actually there's a scene in Four Weddings where Hugh Grant is barefoot and Hannah in shoes and Grant was barely taller, almost the same height. So quite possible he is around 5'10.5" in shoes. I still think though that 176 might be more likely.

Rob is there any chance of a downgrade to 5'9"? I think you're definitely being generous with 177! I'd drop a cm or two personally.
[Editor Rob: 5ft 9 is possible, up to 5ft 9.5 isn't impossible. The guy's posture at times can make him even look a weak 5ft 9]
Arch Stanton said on 27/Jul/14
Rob can you add Four Weddings and a Funeral? Looked 2 inches shorter than Hugh Grant.

Editor Rob, I have evidence that John Hannah is no more than a flat 5'8. As an avid Spartacus fan, I've noticed that in episode 5 of season 1 there's a clear shot of John Hannah and Lucy Lawless facing eachother. In that shot Lucy seems to be .25 taller than John I'd say but if you look closely at some scenes before and after, you'll notice that wwhile Lucy is wearing flat sandals, John is wearing shoes that clearly give around 2inches.

He looks shorter in Spartacus than 5'9-5'9.5 Lucy Lawless. I wouldnt say more than 5'9. Excellent actor.

In a movie his character when asked about his height he says 180cm.
James said on 5/Aug/13
Looks 5ft 9 flat in Spartacus, and he always has huge heels on his Spartacus sandles!
MaskDeMasque said on 1/Mar/13
5'9 flat i think after seeing him in A Touch of Cloth.
Avg stud said on 1/Jan/12
Looks 5'8" or 5'9" tops because with 2 inch sandals in Spartucas show he is only the height of Lucy Lawless who is in flats and stands about 5'10".

John was filming outside my shop yesterday for a new comedy due out on Sky. He wasn't stopping though, he paced around quite a lot. My estimate of him would be 178 cm maximum.
He's from East Kilbride, Rob!

I met him! I stood right next to him and he's really Scottish, but I'm really Welsh lol. Yeah he was defo taller than me cos the top of my head just about reached his shoulder and I'm like 5 ft. ...so 5'10 ish.
Sam said on 15/Apr/06
Saw him once in a club, he's really slight built, Id say 5'9" at the most but prob closer to 5'8"

That Jane quote really surprised me when I first read it. For some reason, John comes across as more of a 5-9er in some of his roles.
Though he did look like a pretty good-sized fella in "Rebus," come to think of it.
