I met her in the early nineties. I'm 5 foot 4. She was tiny, no taller than 5 foot 1, and five foot wouldn't surprise me. I don't know what footwear she was wearing as she was standing behind a buffet table, but she was wearing this white jumpsuit, so I'm guessing she probably didn't have heels on. But 5 foot four? Absolutely no way! I think this website over-estimates sometimes. I walked past Jodie Foster once. She was in flats and is no more than five two at a push.

Size 10, Seventies-style. 👗

In the mid-late Seventies, a Top Shop or Dorothy Perkins Size 10 was made to fit a 22" waist. Size 12 fitted a 24" waist and a Size 8 was made for ladies with a 20.5-21" waist span, and hardly any were made. Mark's and Spencer's Size 10s were made for a 'more realistic' 25" waist and 8s for a 23" waist measurement.

If Kate said she was a Size 10 and she was referring back to the 70s, she'll have been a very skinny young lady!

The mod cons and effort-saving devices of today are often blamed for women's ever-expanding waistlines. We have our gyms, granted, but nothing seems to compete with being constantly on the go.

Kate, who died aged 74 after a short illness, had two sons. Dickon, who passed away at the tragically early age of 48, and Christopher, who is a charity fundraiser.

I read an article about how she kept fit in 'Slimming' magazine back in the 70s, and, yes, she said she was 5ft4, so that's what I'm putting for her. I remember her starring in those funny little dramas put together by The Two Ronnies, always as a scorching hot siren!

RIP Kate XX 🕯️💐

The Vampire Lovers shots include some that make it not as clear cut as I thought, but she is definitely the shortest, and was always clear cut shorter than Joan Collins. As the Rani she was in heels, but never towered Sylvester McCoy by 3 inches or more like she should have at 2 inches taller plus the extra heel. In Time and the Rani, Lie Down To Reason, the episode of Dr Who where Kate as the Rani is becomes Bonnie Langfords character and is dressed like her, she you can see that Kate (presumably in flat shoes for once) has an actual standing height certainly no greater than Sylvester McCoy's and probabally significantly less. There is a PR shot in consume that looks like it was taken in a quarry of the three of them full standing full length with Kate's high heels visible which I consider conclusive proof that she was not over 5'2'.

Ingrid Pitt only had 1 1/2 inches on Kate? Please look at the barefoot PR for the Vampire Lovers. Five four would be absolutely average for a woman of Kate's generation, but she was shorter than all her peers. Also in the PR photos for the Vampire Lovers film's well developed female cast, specifically the one where they all have one leg up and Kate like all the others is on the heel of her bare back foot, anyone can see she is much shorter than any of the other girls. While you met her and you are an expert at this I cannot help think she had more than 1.5 inch footwear in that photo. After the seventies Kate always had high heels on. She was yet another one of those photogenic people with a huge face.

I would say looking at her next to her pal Joan Collins on screen in pr shots and at events, Kate is definitely shorter. In fact she looks much closer to the height of the Queen when Joan and Kate were both photographed with her. Right next to 5'2''Sylvester McCoy in a full length shot she looks no taller even with level ground and her big heels. Kate is bigger than Bonnie Langford at same photo shoot but Bonnie has the habit of lowering her head in photos. I think Kate was no taller that five two, probably slightly less.

I have always found Kate O'Mara's eyes utterly hypnotic! I can see from the picture that she hasn't lost 'It'!

I remember reading about her in a Sunday newspaper in the mid-seventies and liking the pictures very much indeed.

5ft4 seems fine for Kate.

She was always intimidating less on her small stature than her penetrating eyes that made her a very unique villan.

Now Caroline Munro, IMO the sexiest Bond girl with the exception of maybe Ursula and Shirley Eaton. Bloody gorgeous!! Yeah you wouldn't think it now but Madeline was extremely beautiful as a young woman, those eyes and the red hair and fresh skin and ample bosom I thought she'd be your type. That bath scene with her and Ingrid is one of the best nude scenes on film!! I just realized it was her who played the first Bond girl in Roger Moore's Bond films, the girl who hides in the wardrobe in Live and Let Die. Click Here dyed her hair black, but look at that chest!!

Madeline certainly was an eye turner in her day as was Caroline too.
