Jonathan Brandis Height
5ft 9 (175.3 cm)
US Actor from Seaquest DSV. In a 95 edition of YM Magazine there was a fact file (question/answers) that looks as though the interviewer had asked him his weight and height. This was given as '5ft 9 and a half'
and 125 pounds. In another magazine
5ft 9 135lbs.

There's a scene in SeaQuest 2032 where he's walking next to Michael Ironside down a corridor, long shot, full height. He looks perhaps fractionally shorter than Ironside. Certainly not 5ft 10in. 5ft 9in seems accurate.

His autopsy report gives a weight of 167 lbs. and body length of 69 inches (5'9). This listing is correct.

I am watching a lot of Brandis these days due to repeats of Seaquest DSV, showing at around 8 pm every weekday, on the Horror channel (definitely one of my favourite channels). I get the impression that he was an okay actor (in terms of talent). It’s sad that he died young...shame, he didn’t hang on in there, after his career declined, as he may have had a second coming like so many other Hollywood actors...oh, well, now we will never know. Height wise, I’m gonna go for 175 to 177 cm (anywhere between 5 ft 9 to 5 ft 9.5) tall. Rob & Team, what about fellow Seaquest actor Don Franklin (Commander Jonathan Ford)? Could you please do an entry for him, if you have time...or at least tell me what height you think he is (there is absolutely nothing on google or IMDb regarding his height). Thank you.

Hey Rob, you think 5'9.25" is possible for his afternoon height?
Editor Rob: not sure I'd go that high

I think his final height was 5'10, looked taller cause he was slim

I found some interesting notes on his height, though I'm not sure if it's 100% true:
In the start of his teenage-life, he was considered a bit short. This phenomenon was in fact due to that he was actually also growing as an adult. During filming Sidekicks (1992) he had the same height as Mako, (5' 4"). He then seriously grew in his late teenage years. In the last season of SeaQuest DSV (1993) when he was about 19 years old, he reached the height 5'9". He then kept this height for some few years until during filming of Outside Providence (1999) when he finally received his adult height of 6'.

He was only 18 or 19 in 1995 he could have gained 1 or 2 cm maybe ? Anyway he was a great actor, very classy it's sad that he died so young :/

I was a close friend of Jonathan's for many years. He was just barely 5 FT 9 In. tall.
He looked taller due to his being so thin and the camera angles. That's what Hollywood does.

This is a ridiculous claim. I recently saw the movie with Brandis and Keitel and in that movie Brandis looked about two inches taller. I believe he was the height listed here (5'9), I can buy 5'10 but nothing more.

, around 9:20 , he does look a whole lot taller then Harvey Keitel.

On the contrary to popular belief (as it seems to be one), you don't grow 3 inches from the age of 19!... This happens only in cases of mutation

These celebrity heights are all over the board when you go to over websites. I saw one listing him at 6'which I felt was ridiculous. I agree with your assessment that he's average height of 5'9"
MaxB said on 18/Nov/05
If I remember correctly, he was slightly shorter than Roy Scheider (listed as 5'9" here) in the 1st season of Seaquest DSV, and the same size in the 2nd.
