never shorter than 5´8 and no taller than her claim. Maybe closer to 5´8 on a average day and on a good day was measured 174. I dont think she is lying, she have been measured 174. The question is what time of the day?

It is interesting that she is listed as 5’10” on some sites and it is also interesting that the average guess is 5’8.21” (21 votes)! Her middle name is Erin!

💐🎂🎁🎈 Happy Birthday Kate! 🎈🎁🎂💐

Birthday Greetings to Kate Walsh on her 53rd Birthday. I never watched 'Grey's Anatomy', but I was most impressed with her performance in the terrifying movie 'Legion'.

5ft8 for this statuesque beauty. 😁🥀

If in grey's anatomy patrick Dempsey didn't wear lifts she gives the impression of a 172 cm woman

Kate Walsh's height is a bit tricky , sometimes she looks as high as 5ft8 1/4" or as low as 5ft7 3/4"

5'8.5" seems perfect, but no more.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Mar/19
How? It's pretty close to the listed height.
Nik said on 24/Mar/19
The average vote of 5'8.18" is very interesting!
Nik said on 29/Aug/18
5'8" is liable!

Google is such a stupid search system as far as heights go, they put her at 5'10, when they had her as 5'8 a little while ago, well, for she is 5'8(173)

In heels she had a 5'10.5 look so 5'8-8.5 seems possible

HI I am just back from monaco and I met at a beach there she is exteremly tall may be 5'10 with no heels. she is a natural red head and she looks so much younger than her age. So nice and she was not scared of the crowd. I was just besides her.
Christian said on 30/Mar/09
Definitely taller. Met her on the beach when she was just wearing flip flops. She's at least 2 inches taller than me (5'7").
leeAna said on 19/Mar/09
i agree with her height.she might be less though cos u never can tell when it comes to hollywood.
Oscar said on 27/Oct/08
i think 5'8.5 is fine, she can look taller on the show but thats because shes wearing heels
joe II said on 16/Oct/08
she looks 5'10 on complete savages with what looked to be .5 inch shoes
Anonymous said on 25/Jul/08
she is AT LEAST 5'9 1/2. on the show she is noticeably taller than izzie(katherine heigl) who is listed at 5'8.5.
Anonymous said on 23/Jul/08
it says everywhere else that she's 5'10. my friend met her he put her on the high end of 5'9.
Kenza said on 4/Jun/08
I think 5'8.5 seems right!
xtina said on 5/Mar/08
she wears a lot of heels in "Grey's", and she doesn't even look as tall as Dempsey, who is at most 5'10''. i'd say she's 5'7'', or even 5'6.5''
dmeyer said on 2/Jul/07
she was about 1 in shorter than me in 3 in heels so 5'10 in heels not without
dmeyer said on 17/May/07
with heels looks 5'10 without i think she is 5'8.25 since she was about 3 in shorter than me 173 to 174 no less no more
dmeyer said on 25/Mar/07
i met a few times she is not as tall as 175 also i think big heels can give 3 inch over barefeet my girlfriend look almost 5'9.5 when she as heels and she is 5'7.25 also kate looked about 5'8 mybe a hair more when wearing sneakers but in heels looked 5'10 to 5'10.25 i think heels can give 2 inch boost even compare to 1 inch men heels like nicole kidman is 179 but can look 185 in heels so she is about 187 188 in heels anyway kate looked strong 178 when wearing 3.5 in heels
dmeyer said on 8/Mar/07
174 looks bang on she was wearing 3.5 in heels and looked almost my height but when she had 0.75 sleepers she looked 5'8 but i had 1 cm advantage so 174 cm she looked about proper 178 in heels like 5'10.25 person so 174 is bang on she could be 5'8 but heels dont give as mush as we taught but 3.5 night give 2.6 or 2.7
dmeyer said on 11/Feb/07
she is no more than 174 she looks 5'10 on screen but i worked with he she seemed 5'8 flat buti had 1 cm shoes advantage but she aint 5'9 174 seems ok also dempsey is flirting with 5'10 he has 1.25 sneakers but no less than 5'9.5 possibly 177 strong
Realme said on 19/Jan/07
She is not taller than Patrick Dempsey! Dempsey is 5'9.5", and she is 5'8.5." She is taller noticeably than him in heels though, and so is Katherine Heigl.
DMEYER said on 20/Oct/06
she does look tall on screen i might work on greys anatomy soon so i will take a look
Gigy said on 10/Jun/06
Based on those pictures I would say she isn't! I mea´n she is at least 5 cm. shorter compared to him, and we don't evn know if she is wearing heels in that scene?
Gigy said on 8/Jun/06
Still, even if she were 5'9, I find it odd, that the producers would find it necessary to have her wear those high heels, I mean can you imagine standing on your feet and working all day in three to four inch heels, and it's not like she needs it, even barefoot she is the tallest female character on the show, besides Katherine Heigl, that is, who is also 5'9/175 cm., so she is bound to stand out, which is probably what her character is suppposed to be doing. SO those heigh heels are really unnecessary!
Brooke said on 30/May/06
I've stood next to her and I'd say she's 5'9"
Sickstring said on 6/Feb/06
I worked as a PA on a show with her back in '99 and she was easily 5'10" but I'd say closer to 6ft.
Gigy said on 8/Dec/05
From what I could tell, she was about the same height as the actress playing Izzie, who is 175 cm./5'9 feet tall. So Kate Walsh must be at the high end of 5'9. Maybe 176-177 cm.
Blondie said on 2/Dec/05
She was talking on Conan O'Brien last night that Isiah Washington is the only person on the cast who's taller than she is(they call her Godzilla when she walks on the set), so I'd guess she's around 5'10" since she's a bit taller than Patrick Dempsey.
Anonymous said on 1/Dec/05
She was on Conan last night. She said she was one of the tallest people in the cast of Gray's Anatomy and they call her a nickname which is a variation of "amazon". She also said when she modelled in Japan, people would stare at her, stare at her feet, compare hand sizes, etc since she is tall. I'd say she's at least 5'10".
Kat said on 4/Nov/05
She's currently geust starring on Gray's Anatomy and she seems to be at least 5'8.5.
Desi said on 6/Jun/05
Yeah, I met her. She is definitely 5' 8.5" at the least, pushing more toward 5'9", 5'10".
