Only photo of Kenny and Warwick together that shows their height that I could find: Click Here And not a great one at that. But it does seem to fit with their listed heights.

Kenny was probably a bit taller than Warwick, though it may not have been a full 2 inches.

I have dug out my old Star Wars scrapbooks. In one, there are the profiles of six of the major stars of the Star Wars saga at the time they were published in a British magazine (1982). They were Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, David Prowse (Darth Vader), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) and Kenny Baker (R2-D2). This is what it said about Kenny Baker...

Who is taller? Warwick Davis or him?

I think he has achondraplasia. Hence the abnormally short height and disproportionate limbs.

The first time I've seen him walk within a foot of me and he is shortest actor I've seen. Impossible to estimate, anywhere from 3ft 4 to 3ft 8.
