Judging from premiere photos next to 5'9 daniel gillies i'm going with 5'10 3/4. He gives off a tall appearance in tvd and the originals, could get away with 5'11 to 6ft in shoes.

@ jane, your comment really does not make any sense. please clarify who is wearing the really tall boots? they probably both do. let this man round up to 5'11 even if it is in really tall boots.

He’s shorter than Paul Wesley by the looks of photos and in the vampire diaries. I know you have Paul at 5’10 but I’d say he could be a solid 5’10 1/2 while Joseph is 5’10.

he is 177.2cms or 5foot 9 3/4 inches ...he is little shorter than paul wesley who is 177.8cms or 5'10 inches. What is your take on this Big Rob?
Editor Rob
I never thought he looked shorter than Paul on the show, in some photos he can sometimes seem barely 5ft 10 though.
Chaitanya Sinha said on 16/Aug/20
Joseph Morgan A.K.A klaus as played in tvd may be around 177cms coz he looks shorter than paul wesley who is 5 foot 10 inches tall i.e 177.8 cms as listed by celebsheight...Joseph appears shorter than paul in most of the scenes...U should have a look out in this ROB..May be he appears shorter due to his posture.

I still believe he's 5'11
Chaitanya Sinha said on 26/Jun/20
He is 5 foot 11 inches tall
Cathy Wu said on 11/Jun/20
Rob, you gotta check this scene out with him and 5'11" Nathaniel Buzolic at 1:52. He legit looks 1 to 1.5 inches shorter, considering they're both wearing equal footwear. Even the thumbnail for that video shows the large height difference between the two

The 5ft 10.5 figure for Morgan is a real possibility.
Philip S said on 19/Apr/20
NO way is he 5’11”

But 5’10.5”? Oh fo sho. He barely edges Daniel Gillies in many scenes.
Melkor 198cm said on 14/Feb/20
I would guess him at a solid 6ft tall. I have seen him once by chance in a grocery store, talked to him for 5 mins, gauge his height to be 6ft no more no less, he was wearing sneakers so it wouldnt have confused me for his height bare foot much.

This listing is spot on!

He’s only looks 2cm max on Gillies, so that would make him no more than 5’10.5”.

Rob, 179cm is closer?
Editor Rob
Joseph is another guy on Vampire Diaries who looks mostly over 5ft 10, taller than Paul Wesley...but is it only half inch or a full inch. At times it looks anywhere between both figures, so the lowest I'd say I could argue is 179, the highest around 180cm.
travis said on 23/Dec/17
he look like jesse eisenberg
Editor Rob
one thing is sure, he's at least a good 3-3.5 inches taller than jesse.

Joseph Morgan is 5'11
Wolf said on 10/Nov/17
What about Charles Michael Davis (Marcel from The Originals)?

Click Here him next to 5’11 guys like Ryan Guzman and RJ Mitte. (He’s wearing trainers in the picture)

Click Here With Leah Pipes

Click Here I’m gonna assume Paul is wearing his thicker boots here

Click Here he looks quite a bit taller than Gillies here

And then here’s him next to Joseph Click Here Click Here Click Here

What do you think Rob? Google has him at 6ft by the way...
Editor Rob
wouldn't go over 5ft 11 for him, can see at times he seems a bit shy of it too.

-- Joseph Morgan's Height is 5ft 10.5in (179cm) --

Not quite 5'11", always looks shorter than this.
Tiago said on 23/Oct/16
He is 5'10 guy equal Paul Wesley...
Flyin said on 19/Sep/16
Maybe the 5'10.75, but over 5'10.5 due to him never looking a full inch shorter than Micheal Davis. Some of the stills below might not consider footwear. Whereas, you can view over time with TV. Also, Joseph Morgan doesn't seem like he would be height conscious.
Ferris said on 22/Dec/15
@Editor Rob,

he looks an inch shorter than 5'11.5" listed Grant Gustin

1.5 inch shorter than 5'11.5" Ioan Gruffudd

the ioan pic might b in morgan's disadvantage, but he's constantly shorter than legit 5'11" guys.
he could b a weak 5'11" Rob?
Editor Rob
he could fall into the 179-80 zone, I do think he can beat out a guy like wesley though on that show.

Rob, what do you think of these interviews? Morgan and Gillies seem really identical in height here and Daniel is listed as 5'9.5 on the site. Time for a downgrade?
Editor Rob
I'd say he could look 5ft 10.5 there, I don't think Morgan looked less than wesley on the show, and that's with paul in slightly more footwear.
Jane said on 21/Jun/15
No way he's 5'11. Looks even to or shorter w/ paul wesley even though he's always wearing those really high boots
Bleak said on 11/Jun/15
Really hard to pin down his height as it varies widely from shot-to-shot in both TVD and TO. I've seen every episode of both and my honest opinion is that he's AT MOST, somewhere between 5'10 and 5'11. There's just too many instances where he doesn't look like a 5'11 guy though. And he's usually wearing boots with a pretty decent-sized heel as well.
Ricardo said on 9/Nov/14
I agree. He looks like a good 5'11 !
Matt said on 3/Jun/14
More like 5'10, he even looks shorter than Wesley sometimes who is a legit 5'10 and seems to be around the same height as Somerhalder.
Dan said on 24/May/14
there are also scenes in The originals where he looks taller, and scenes where they look the same height, I think him and Joseph are similar height, which if he is 177/178 that is only a 2-3 cm difference,or about an inch difference, therefore I would still consider that a similar height, I am not saying an unnoticeable height difference, I am saying they are a similar height, which a lot of people on here can't seem to distinguish the difference between
Dan said on 22/May/14
@fa 1 - what are you basing this off? from the originals and vampire diaries? Daniel is always wearing dress shoes while Joseph has boots on the majority of the time,2 - one inch difference is not that much
Dan said on 14/May/14
Could you add Daniel Gillies? he appears a similar height to Joseph in The Originals
rick said on 19/Apr/14
He is definitely 5'11! A lot of the people on the show wear lifts like ian somerhalder so that's why Joseph is slightly taller
Freddy said on 26/Feb/14
he's 5'9 maybe 176cm on a good day....even in boots he doesnt look like a full 5'11
Yitzhak 179cm evening said on 5/Dec/13
In that pic with Trevino he doesn't even look 178, maybe 177, to be honest. If he were really 3 inches taller than Trevino there is no way short of lifts he could look so close in height.
betty said on 30/Nov/13
when Michael trevino is 173...Click Here i guess 178 cm
James said on 26/Nov/13

While looking normal I can near enough guarantee you that Wesley's shoe's are custom lifts, both him and Somerholder always wear big shoes hence why they always look the same heignt, if not slightly taller than Steven R McQueen who plays Jeremy.

Few hints of lifts in the photo, Wesley's knee's are higher, plus while stood up straight Wesley has a leaning forward posture which you get with considerably sized lifts.

There's only 2cm between them naturally, so with Wesley's hair and extra heels the difference can be quite exaggerated.
Nope, no way said on 20/Nov/13
There is just no way he is 180 cm, as Jared is 194 cm.

Bran said on 21/Aug/13
Looks shorter, then again he's probably the only male on the cast who doesn't wear lifts !!
Dirty Pitts said on 20/May/13
5'11" is a joke for Morgan, he looks like he's 5'9.5" tops.
Slightly taller than Ian Somerhalder.

Does it matter? He's still sexy as all hell. Though he always seemed shorter to me
