Hi rob I'm hoping you'd be able to answer this question for me,
Okay so in this picture kit harrington stands next to Josef altin let's just say for the sake of the argument there's no lifts or any height increasing insoles involved how tall would you say kit looks in this photo!??
[Editor Rob: the one with the glasses on flat ground, I think he can look maybe 171 at most]

I agree Robs listing it seems legit. Could be a tad shorter could be a tad taller. And he does tend to wear a thick boot at most events.

Dude gets towered over a lot by the tall actors on Game of Thrones. Stannis (6'0), Mance (6'0), Thorne (6'1-6'2), and Styr (?) all make him look like a shrimp. Though to be fair, the guy who plays Styr is huge.

Hey Rob, If Rose Leslie is 5ft4.75, Kit can't be more than 5ft7: Click Here

What would you say his weight is Rob? I've seen one website say 170 but that sounds too high give his lean frame and short height.
[Editor Rob: he did put on some bulk for the Pompeii film, so 165 range is very possible.]

He looked 172 on GoT next to John Bradley, but he's 2.5 inches shorter than Madden. I think he's more 5'7.25 than 5'7.25.
said on 21/Jun/14
He looks somewhere around 174 and 177 in GoT, is there a single possibility he hits 174 at his maximum?
[Editor Rob: from a couple of friends who saw him they said he looked around 5ft 7, I think it is more believable than over 5ft 8 that he is under 5ft 8.]

Met him again in East London at the members club where i work, definite 5'7.5. No Less, no more. I'm 6'0 and he was, again, just below my eyeline. Very lithe build, though, so looks taller. Was wearing 'desert boot' type footwear so not much of a heel. I was wearing standard shoes with the usual 3/4 inch add.

Met him today. I put him somewhere between 5'6" and 5'7". Didn't see his footwear but I had normal shoes on, and I absolutely towered over him at 5'10.5".

You know I was wondering whether this guy was 5 feet 8 or 5 feet 10, but now it seems that he is even shorter than I thought! Where are all the 5 feet 10 sites claims are coming from though?
Well atleast the man was somewhat honest.
Chris said on 19/May/14
His lips are almost 2 inches thick
CeeDee said on 18/May/14
Had the pleasure of meeting him in London last night - lovely fella. And, yep, I'd say 5 7.5 is spot on.
said on 18/Apr/14
Rob is he more like 171 or 171.5 ?
[Editor Rob: I think anywhere in that range he could be]
said on 27/Mar/14
Rob maybe 5'7.75" would be better? He does look closer to 5'8" than 5'7"
[Editor Rob: sometimes he can wear thicker footwear at events, but I am sticking with him being 5ft 7.5 at most for the moment]
said on 26/Mar/14
Rob, he doesn't look any shorter than John Bradley who you met. Are you sure he's not the full 5'8?
[Editor Rob: I think he would measure a little shorter than the 5ft 8 mark]
said on 26/Mar/14
He calls himself as 5'8" in the new GQ interview. Assuming he would rather round up than down, the listed height seems intuitive.
[Editor Rob: I'll add the claim at the top.]
said on 19/Feb/14
Was on Jimmy Kimmel last night and he looked VERY SHORT. At least 4+ inches. Side by side. 30 second mark
chrissss said on 17/Feb/14
no way in hell this guy is 5'9 or 5'10. looks tiny around the females in the game of thrones cast, and never looks tall, spot on listing rob
Emily said on 13/Jan/14
@Hola Are you male or female?
said on 12/Jan/14
I saw your comment about head size here rob, I'm 5'5 range with a 9,25 inch head, ive aleays considered myself to have a somewhat large head, would i be correct in relation to my height?
[Editor Rob: yes, it would be more than average at that range.]

@JossBoss she is 5'5, not 5'6

@JossBoss She is 5'5, not 5'6.
JossBoss said on 12/Sep/13
when he was next to Rose Leslie (who was in heels) he was still taller than her. and according to this website it says she's around 5'6.. and there was no way she was wearing 1inch heels. he's AT LEAST 5'9...
said on 28/Aug/13
@Rob do you substract his hair on top from that estimation? In this pic:Click Here
it's clear his hair is quite thick. Lena's head would be about how many inches long?
[Editor Rob: his hair can vary from about 1/2 to an inch in thickness]
said on 20/Aug/13
Rob do you agree his head looks disproportionate to his body? His head looks quite big. How many inches long from bottom of chin to top of head?
[Editor Rob: I think with hair being long and wavy it can add to the size, looking at him with a few other people I think nearly 9.5 is possible. Certainly, he doesn't have a small head for his height.]
said on 20/Jul/13
He's definitely no taller than 5'8.
Co-star John Bradely, standing directly to his left is listed as 5'8 and appears quite visibly taller, although Harrington's posture is probably making him look a little shorter than he is. If Bradley's listing as 5'8 is exaggerated, which it likely is, Harrington couldn't be much more than 5'7.
said on 3/Jun/13
On second thought, John seems to have a lil' bit advantage
Probably 0.5'' to 1''
Bradi said on 3/Jun/13
He looks to be the same height as John Bradley which you got at 5'8''.
I'd say 5'8'' for Kit, he doesn't looks short enough for 5'7''
said on 13/Apr/13
definitely looks taller on the show. Rob, how come you list 171 as 5ft 7.25in sometimes and 5ft 7.5in other times? Ive noticed this quarter inch discrepancy in other heights (174, 176 etc.) too
[Editor Rob: I store the height is feet/inches and show the cm beside it (the nearest whole cm) so 5ft 7.25 = 170.8cm, the nearest is 171 and 5ft 7.5 = 171.45, so it's closer to 171 than 2.]

Doesn't look very tall next to these 2 ladies and judging from his expression he knows it. Click Here
Len said on 2/Apr/13
Yep, 5'8" or so is about right, though you only notice it when you see him standing right next to other characters.
He's well-proportioned and slim, so in many scenes he can look taller than he really is.
The 5'10" they try to claim for him some places is ludicrous. They should've tried for 5'9" and maybe some would have believed it.
Monkey said on 30/Mar/13
Standing next to Richard Madden he looks as tall as Peter Dinklage, and Madden is listed as 5' 11" some places, which is probably exaggerated. 5' 7" may be generous.
R4v3nh34rt said on 2/Feb/13
Yeah he's listed 5'10 almost everywhere but he doesn't look that tall. I thinks this is accurate
balrog said on 25/Dec/12
Wow I though he was 5'9'' at least. Tv is so amazing, makes you look taller ahaha.
173 said on 18/Nov/12
171 as listed.
I wouldn't say he's 'wee' as he is only a bit below average range and looks normal height on screen as most 5'7" guys do. But below 5'7"... now that's 'wee'.
little sue said on 11/Nov/12
I know a few women who love him and it would'nt make any diference if he was 5ft 7.5 or 6ft 2!!
Chiara said on 10/Nov/12
Oh my god i can´t believe he´s so short. The camera can be so deceiving, this site is opening my eyes, and i don´t like it with some celebs lol!
Sharpshooter said on 10/Nov/12
5'7.5 is short, but its not critically short. He's only 2 or so inches below average height?
said on 8/Nov/12
Wow, didn't think he was this short from GOT, but he really does look 5'7" next to his co-star Adelaide Clemens, 5'9"+ heels, in Silent Hill.
[Editor Rob: one thing is pretty sure, he's no 5ft 10 guy.]
leeniebean said on 8/Nov/12
yeh - 171cm is definitely more accurate. he's wee. ;)
Jack said on 7/Nov/12
He's listed at 178 cm on many sites. hmm....
