How tall is Kenneth Branagh

Kenneth Branagh's Height

5ft 9 ½ (176.5 cm)

British actor best known for roles in Henry V, Much Ado About Nothing 1994's Frankenstein and TV series Wallander. As a director he is best known for helming Thor. He was once described by The Express as a ludicrously underestimated 'mere 5ft 7ins in the flesh', although the St Louis post remarked, "he is about 5 feet 9 inches tall, and has described himself as 'Too tall for the short roles and too short for the tall ones'". On his agency resume his weight is listed at 154 pounds and in the 1980's he listed himself 5ft 9.5 in the Spotlight Directory

Kenneth came up yesterday as the answer on a question on 'The Chase'. Bradley asked the contestant which actor/director Emma Thompson married. I got it! 😜

Saw Kenneth recently in 'Dances With Wolves'.

5ft10 back then; 5ft9.5 now.

He is 5ft 9 half at least I can say when he was standing with his ex-wife Emma Thompson with my height range....... definitely nothing less than 5ft 9 quarter for sure!!!!!

5'9.5" but there is a few time making Chris Hemsworth look nothing over 6'2.5".

For some reason wore lifts near Madden

Seen him up close and 5'9.5 seems spot on. Looked solid average height, no less than this. Didn't notice his footwear though but you have to give someone the benefit of the doubt and assume he had standard shoes on.

This listing is too high. He looked at least 4" shorter than Costner and Pine. He is most likely closer to 5'8".

Haven't seen the footwear, but he looked a tad taller than Jaimie Alexander who is about 5'8.5 according to Rob. So this listing seems correct.

Around 5ft9-10 is what he looks generally

Can look 5'8.5 then look strong 5'10. 5'9-5'9.5 area.

a solid 5'10" in wallander mini series.

Just below 5ft10 looks about right. Not a short man
Jim said on 16/Oct/13
No way, hes 5'9" MAX.

A 5'9" flat guy. Great actor, and one of the few Brits who does a perfect American accent.

Met Mr Branagh last September and he was a very nice man. Got him to sign a dvd. I'm 5ft 7in and I'd say the 5ft 9.5in is pretty accurate.

I think gravity has gotten the best of Ken in the last several years. I reckon he close to 6'0'' at one point because he always seemed to tower people at 5'7'' or so.

Went to the MWWM screening tonight. Good Film. Both Ken and Michelle Williams were there. But security would not let us anywhere close to them. This week there are The Golden Globes, People's Choice, LA Critics, and Broadcast Critics Awards in LA, along with The Palm Springs Film Festival. LA is LOADED with celebs. I will see what I can do.

I am going to a screening of "My Week with Marilyn" tonight and Kenneth and Michelle Williams will be there. I will see what I can do.

I met Branagh a few years ago and he impressed me as being taller than I expected. I'd say 5'9 1/2 is correct.
wayhay said on 9/Feb/09
5'9ish is about right because I used to think he was taller, he comes across that way :)
sam said on 5/Jan/09
sidewinder, that's just rediculous
James W. said on 7/May/08
definitely 5'9
Pipboy said on 19/Jul/07
5'9.5 barefoot is probably right. He's actually taller than Derek Jacobi (listed 5'10)--in which case Branagh should be listed 5'10.5.
CelebHeights Editor said on 4/Dec/05
He is listed 5ft 10 on his CV.
sidewinder said on 6/Oct/05
this guy is no 5'9
more like 5'6 or 5'7
