Seem like a legit 5'7 footer
said on 16/Jan/20
Another interview from Seacreast.
I do not know the shoewear of Jon. He appears a bit taller than Ryan actually
At some bits both can look a bit taller than the other, though in these interviews with ryan, I do think the camera seems to favour the right side on the wider angle shot.

I would have guessed that guy at 5'7" with the glasses and Kit looks to get edged. I still am sticking with my 169 cm guess - 5'6,3/4 at best barefoot.
Peter175 said on 12/Dec/19
Redwing I'd guess around a legitimate 5'7-5'7.5 height from those pictures.
Tom and Kit are more 5'6.5-5'7 range and overlisted IMO.
I'd actually give the height edge to Kit over Tom.
Legit 5'7 guys are like Rami Malek, Robin Williams peak and Floyd Mayweather

Hi rob, is the guy with the glasses how tall exactly? And how tall would that actually make Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth? Cause Thor looks about 8 inches over the smaller guy?

@ Rob - They are great pictures and show the heights very clearly. 😁👍

Commenting again as i feel there is s lot of... Downgrading/jealous comments here; Kit is 5ft 7.25in. Medical/insurance height. Dead on. Mentioned previously that work has allowed me to meet a lot of people, Kit being one of the nicest. 5ft 7.25in dead on.

Oh sorry, I guess you meant the average guess in reference to Aaron Paul.
mande2013 said on 31/Jul/19
@Logan: Rob has Aaron Paul at 5'7.75, and anyhow, Kit looks under 5'7 for sure, but I'm not seeing anything as low as 5'5.5-5'6 flat. I think he's still at least around 1m69.

@Rob, based on the image below Aaron Paul looks anywhere from 1-2 inches taller than Kit. If your websites 5''7' and 1/2 estimate of Aaron Paul is accurate than Kit could be anywhere in that 5"5' 1/2 to 5'6" 1/2 zone. I'll go with 5'6" flat. Although the downside is shoe heel size of both is unknown. Both tend to wear similar shoes though.
Aaron could be an inch taller
Jordan87 said on 7/Jun/19
He is likely under 5'7" Folks. The Lying by these people is out of control. Even tall guys like Dolph Lundgren and Dave Prowse lie.
Lundgren reported 6'6" which we know he wasn't even 6'5. Prowse reported 6'7 and we know he wasn't even 6'5.
It good this site exists.

When he’s next to Dany in got he’s barely taller, Dany in turn is barely taller than Tyrion. 5’8 my ass, his wife is so-called 5’7 but I doubt that too
said on 26/May/19
Hi Rob, I'm from Russia. Question: if this value (170.2) is true, then in the morning its height is 171.2 or 171.0 (+ 1cm or + 1cm and 2 mm)? how to round? Answer please.
Kit might be 171-2cm first thing in the morning...but I also feel he could fall under 170 at night. At times he seems between 169-170 range.
Rob Parkers said on 21/May/19
Yeah I think that 5'7" is about right even though he looks a litter taller on GOT. But still a good deal shorter than many of the other actors on the show.
Amber Jones said on 13/May/19
I say He is 5'6 1/2
Ndomingu said on 10/May/19
Kit definitely seems like a weak 5’7” person. He isn’t much taller than 5’6” Hannah Murray. I’m not really sure why he gets so many short jokes though. I mean it’s shortish or lower average at best, but I guess since in GoT he plays a major character they think it’s fun to poke jokes about him a lot. He’s a good looking dude, so that’s probably why people are probably thinking just like it doesn’t matter really. He’s also one of the most charismatic people on the show. Although Kit is like the same height range as Alfie and Iwan, but they don’t get teased by the characters about height ever that I’ve noticed. My guess is because Alfie and Iwan were playing more secondary or minor characters on the show.

Not an inch taller at all, very similar in fact. Its arguable that she is 5'7.5-5'8" sometimes in heels but she tends to take smaller models. As you can see in my pic with her/kit/nathalie next to one another. Nathalie is only 1 inch taller but in that pic looks 2inches taller.
We know she likes a good heel from the time Rob met her. In regards to Sophie Turner she appears 5'11" range ( 6ft range in heels). She was noticeably shorter than a 5'11.5" listed Isaac Hempstead Wright ( Bran) at the latest red carpet for the premier. So sometimes she takes a big heel and gets up to 6ft but othertimes its just a solid 2.5 inch range heel.
Anyway you do agree with me Peter175, I believe Kit is 5'6" range as in 169 cm, not any lower.

@Sea Nettles Paul Wood is very wrong. Within living memory? Not sure about that. If we look at average historic male heights, we can see European heights have increased dramatically over the past century. Dutch Men used to be the shortest of Europe, averaging around 165 CM (rounded UP to 5"5). Today, Dutch men are the tallest in Europe, with an average height of around 180-183 cm (5"11 - 6).
Orientalists who visited parts of the Middle-East used to comment on the height of Kurdish men, referring to them as "tall". At that time, Kurdish men were probably taller than European men. Today, they are, on average, probably around 5"9 - 5"10.
Diet, stability, etc. plays an important role in height, it's not all genetic.
Shashank 192.4 said on 22/Apr/19
He is not that small but he constantly labelled as short.Even in got dany always refers jon as short spoiler alert s08 e02.
Sea Nettles said on 22/Apr/19
Paul wood said - "It surprises me how many people talk as 5ft 7in is a really unusual height for a male" -- Paul, it is. At least, for Western Europeans. If you're Hispanic, if you're Mid-Eastern, if you're Indian or Southeast Asian or East Asian - sure - 5'7" is probably gigantic. But for Western Europeans - for Russians - for Northwestern Europeans - and I suppose probably Europeans in general, 5'7" is small. For women - it used to be that 5'4" to 5'6" was average for US women. But then again, US women used to be 90% European. Now that they're like 50% Hispanic and Asian, no wonder you're saying that 5'2" is average. It wasn't - at least up until very, very recently - within living memory. Not even remotely. No worries, Paul! As China continues buying up the US, and as Hispanics continue flooding in the US and Canada, and Eritreans and Moroccans continue flooding Europe, and as miscegenation continues to propagandize native Europeans everywhere - no worries - everyone will soon be the same height as well as color, around 165 inches :)
Peter175 said on 20/Apr/19
Johan not sure what that's suppose to prove.
Rose is in heels and standing tall and he's still about an inch bigger.
And yes Sophie is 5'9 and in heels so she appears around 6ft tall ofc she'll tower a 5'7 man.
Rob has a picture with Bradley and there is no way Bradley is more than 3cm on kit.
I cant see him above 5'7 but there's perfectly enough evidence to support he's around 169-170
said on 20/Apr/19
5'6" flat seems too short, possibly he could fall a few mm shy of 5'7", but I think 5'7" flat is reasonable. He seems to have pretty loose posture, and there's a lot of tall people at GoT events, which definitely don't help the illusion that he is tiny.
There are photos and situations in which he can look in 5ft 6 range, but then other times it's hard to see him less than 5ft 7 like here
with almost 5ft 9 firth

Peter175 said on 18/Apr/19
Johan those are honestly cherrypicks.
Kit is not 5'6.5 at all unless he has a flat head.
That pic is useless. They are in motion and he is in front of her, talk about cherrypicking.
Look how short he looks next to average height women. He makes a weak 5'9" girl look like a giant.
Natalie Dormer is 5'5 1/2 according to Rob who met her and his wife is 5'4 1/2.
He is absolute max 5'7" but claims himself to be 5'6" and that he had to wear heels on GoT to be taller than other actors.
said on 19/Apr/19
Ok kit is defiantly way below 5'7 by atleast 2 inches based on the johnny flynn(5'10) pictures.
im guessing 5'4.5-5'5 max

Used to think 5'7" was a good shout but next to a 5'2" woman in a heel he only looks a good inch taller. Say she even had 3 inches more footwear that would put her at 5'6" in heels….
I can see why people are saying 5'6" range.
Full body pic shows they are in equal footwear. Not even a full 2 inches and Rob met Rose and has her at 5'4.5".
5'6.5" seems like a better shout for Kit.
Always wears flats when they are out, very rarely a small heel.
Decent sized heel would give 3 1/2 inches so taking her to 5'8". Why doesn't she wear them if Kit is also 5'8" in footwear?
5ft 6.5 is never discounted, but hopefully one day he'll do an event in UK.
Peter175 said on 17/Apr/19
I do think Sophie looks 2 inches on Kit but she wears similar shoes to him in GOT.
I think Kit looks shorter with Emilia and at times can look only 4 inches taller not even counting her heel
Peter175 said on 17/Apr/19
Well I was once in Kit at big G range camp too but after seeing him in all the seasons and some redcarpet appearences I don't think you can argue that kit is much if any below 5'7.
Granted it is very most likely not a mm above it either(7.25 is the most i can possibly give him) but 5'6.5 is just really too low.
He is just strange proportioned with large head and narrow shoulders. He gets 5'6.75-7 from me
Rowdy said on 16/Apr/19
5'5 3/4 or weak 5'6. He is always wearing big footwear and looks much much shorter than Sophie in a lot of scenes. If Sophie's 175 listing is accurate, she has at least two inches on him when he is in boots so 5'6 at best.
Great actor regardless :)
Paul Wood said on 15/Apr/19
It surprises me how many people talk as 5ft 7in is a really unusual height for a male. According to the up to date CDC height percentile calculator (admittedly for the US, but the UK is very similar in terms of which particular height is at which percentile) 5ft 7in is at the 18th percentile for a 20 year old male. So that's nearly one in five that height or shorter even with young men, and many older men who were 5ft 8in or even 5ft 9in will have shrunk to 5ft 7in. On the street in everyday life it's not uncommon to see 5ft 7in men, the same as you see quite a lot of 5ft 2in women around (the equivalent female height).

5'6" or 5'6.5". He's pretty tiny.

He was on Kelly and Ryan this morning, and he is definitely shorter than Ryan Seacrest. So 5’6” would be accurate.
said on 10/Mar/19
Looks about an inch taller than 5'6 Xavier Dolan here: Click Here
I suppose you could argue either 5'7 or 5'6.75. No more no less than that range.

Appeared shorter than Joe Jonas by a bit
169/170 best guess
Alex65 said on 26/Aug/18
169.5 cm for me, but looks 172-173 in GoT.
Rob, could you add Vladimir Furdik, playing Night King in GoT ? He's now one of most important characters !
Sacred said on 13/Aug/18
173 cm for me
Darren Lee said on 13/Jul/18
I would go for no more than 5'7 for him and no less than 5'6...this is usually the height deemed obviouslg though not significantly below average height...his height comes up in several references in GoT. Danys say he's too little for her probably refers to how he is significantly shorter than Daurio and Karl Drogo who are very tall! Also when Gendry said he is shorter than Ned Stark he is around the average height range.
Gabe Perron said on 12/Jul/18
I am 5 6 i bet hes got an inch on me but no more. Funny when dani called him small because she is teeny herself and reminds me alot how tiny women have called me short. shows that they are height clueless lol.
KH said on 28/Apr/18
He holds it well but no more then a 5'6.75 to 5'7 range. He looks noticeably shorter then the actress that plays sansa it can look two inches at times.
SharpshooterTom said on 20/Apr/18
Saw him today in Belfast! (briefly anyway)
Walked right past me (near the Europa hotel for any Belfast locals). He was wearing a big pair of circular sunglasses, trying to look discrete, holding hands with I presume Rose Leslie (who was also wearing the exact very same type of sunglasses). So thus the pair of them were difficult to identify (on purpose obviously) but I'm 95% certain it was him given he reportedly spends so much time in Belfast (calls it his 2nd home), a few others around me immediately thought it was him too when they walked past, just in case I wasn't sure.
Now I'm precisely 5'7.5 (my bedtime height after about 10-12 hours) so I would have been in the range 5'7.5-5'7.75 range with a pair of 1.0-1.1 inch sneakers on, it was around 6pm (I was about to catch a 6:15pm bus). I got up late today at around 10:30am, so I was up for say 7-8 hours.
It was very brief because I didn't want to overly stare at him too much, but I got the impression he was a little shorter than me if I'm being honest (which was the reason why it reinforced the idea that I thought it had to be him because the vast majority of men are clearly taller than me!).
Rob's right though you shouldn't really judge a person's height on uneven pavements etc, but nonetheless I DEFINITELY got the hunch he was a little shorter than me when he walked past. He looked as if he was wearing thin sneakers I think (thinner than mine anyway), under a inch probably if I was guessing.
I felt as if I had an inch on him or so. I think if I were to stand next to him flat footed I'm very confident I would edge him out based on what I saw today.
Rob's assessment of 5'7 is probably quite accurate, but he's definitely no taller than that, and if I had to guess from my (very) brief moment of being up close to him today I would say he's more 5'6.5 than 5'7.5. He felt like a 5'6.5-5'7 guy next to me.
What I can confirm for sure is that there's absolutely no way he's taller than me.

He does not look so below 5'7 ... it must be his clothes he wears looks that make him look taller

He really does look under 5'7 with barely 5'8 Steven Yeun.

Axelandre, there is more than enough proof to justify a sub5'7 kit harington, even Rob says so.

Just watched Aziz Ansari accept his award for master of none at the 2018 golden globes. 5’5.5 Aziz looked the same height as kit Harington WITH maybe an inch and a half in lifts. I think its Safe to say Kit is shorter than 5’7.
ALEXANDRE ALVES BR said on 5/Jan/18
curious ... in the photos in brazil he was smaller than most men ... it is the majority here is 5'7-5'8.5

To anonymous: how tall is your brother?
Because i also believe Kit is somewhere between 5’5.5-5’6.
Anonymous said on 2/Jan/18
My brother met him at his local in London a few years ago and was commenting about how short he is. 5-7 is very generous of you. 5-5 to 5-6 barefoot is more accurate. Even with boots on, he only looked about 5.6.

Peter175 said on 2/Dec/17
6footTom but Kit also had a decent sized heel in the last season. Maybe not quite as big as hers, but within 0.5-75 inch certainly and like Bobby said, should be a larger difference if it were really near 5 inches.
Honestly see 4 inches with Emilia
6footTom said on 1/Dec/17
@Bobby Emilia Clarke is listed at 5'2" on here and I think she sometimes wore heels during the last two seasons, so it makes sense that he doesn't completely dwarf her.
ALEXANDRE ALVES BR said on 24/Nov/17
Why is it that how people play so much with their height? the same does not happen with his friend Alfie Allen ... why will it ???
Bobby said on 23/Nov/17
You'd think for being 5'7, he'd dwarf Emilia Clarke but it isn't the case. Emilia is listed 5ft here, I think, or 5'1. I can't remember. I do however remember seeing a 5'8 listing for him and thinking he couldn't be that tall because he doesn't appear a great deal taller than Emilia Clarke and I guessed he'd be more 5'6 than 5'8. So I can see 5'7 for this guy.
Peter175 said on 20/Nov/17
Rob I think his head would be around the same length as yours, maybe a slice longer actually. Looks big to me, especially at his size
Anyway I think the average guess has him at the height he's looked for the past 7 years. Factoring out his hair(which gives him a respectable amount of height) he can't be as tall as 5'7" before bed
ALEXANDRE ALVES BR said on 20/Nov/17

He is 5'8".

Rob this guy is 168 no more
Alex said on 4/Nov/17
I really think he's 5'6.75". Last I measured myself barefoot I was about that, yet I'm always considered a 5'7" guy.
said on 3/Nov/17
Rob do you think of Big G as 5ft 6.25 now? You seem to quite often refer to him as a 5ft 6 and change guy, is that under the assumption he has lost a fraction of height since you met him in 2009?
Editor Rob: I don't believe he was ever really at his lowest height the first time he got measured. 6.40pm for him was like a lunch measurement, based upon the time he said he woke up at...But I'd predict he lost a small fraction in 8 years given his lifestyle and have him at 5ft 6.25 these days.
Poor Jenny has lost a comparatively large amount in 8 years since then.
said on 1/Nov/17
Rob perhaps he gave a height of 5'6 and some change, or said 169 and they converted or rounded what he said.
Regardless I don't think he's as low as flat 5'6 but not as high as 5'7 flat either, that would make Lena Heady 5'4.5 and you have a pic with her. 169 is totally believable though imo
Editor Rob: 169 is the worst mark I'd try to argue for him, 5ft 6 flat just doesn't add up.

Well considering Natalie Dormer being listed at 5'6, she's in regular sports wear here, and putting in the fact that Kit might have some heels on plus leaning over a bit, I think he's atleast 5'7 tbh
Dormer is a weak 5ft 6 range, but there was a recent article in the Guardian that slipped in a bit about Kit 'saying he's 5ft 6'...I don't know, has he suddenly went from 5ft 8 to 6..he has a comfortable inch
on josef altin who isn't much shorter in person than 5ft 6 and 1/4 Big G, in fact I'd say Altin in person looked taller than G, but then he's very skinny which creates an illusion!

Peter175 said on 18/Oct/17
I agree Shredder, I don't think kit is below 169, but I'm not convinced he'd be a full 5'7. There are too many pictures of him out there looking far below regular 5'8ers to be a strong or even a regular 5'7. Yeun with rob was a weak 5'8 and Kit was more than an inch shorter than him.
Shredder said on 18/Oct/17
He is at least 5'6.5 with Dominic , but a very max weak 5'7 with Yeun , 5'6.75 would be perfect
Shredder said on 16/Oct/17
Next to Steven Yuen, 5'6.75 seems his tallest.
Angle said on 15/Oct/17
@Peter175 I know this is probably a topic for the general height page but i'll agree with you there. I'm 5'10.5/5'10.75 Midday and i noticed i was at least an Inch or two taller than most guys when i was queuing for drinks last night.
5'9 for UK average wouldn't be far off in my opinion.
Nicholas said on 15/Oct/17
5'6.75 is good for him. The averague is in the 5'8-5'9 area but Kit is not short, with boots he could pass without problem.
Peter175 said on 13/Oct/17
Where is 5'10.5 the average for young men? If actually measured and not just claimed. I still think its in the high 5'9 range for young men and low 5'9 range for older men.
Also Anglo people are shorter than Germanic and scandis, kit is Welsh, not germanic
randomuser said on 9/Oct/17
lol the average height in the UK is not 5'8. It's a solid 5'10 and 5'10.5 for young men. A 5'8 average would mean 5'5 guys would be just as common as 5'11 guys, which is literally impossible for a wealthy, western nation with lots of German/Scandinavian blood like the UK.
Chicago Mason said on 6/Oct/17
Looks 5'7 for me. 1.70 is not small, is the average height in many places. I lived in UK and i would say the average height is 5'8.25, so Kit is not short, is only a inch of diference.

@KH - I'm pretty sure it was supposed to be an inside joke, since Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa) is so tall.

I think Dany just made the comment in comparison to her other lovers who were generally tall. There’s nothing wrong with Jon Snow/Kit Harington being short. It wasn’t an insult or nothin.
KH said on 18/Sep/17
I thought it was silly when Daenarys called Jon Snow small. He really is no shorter then the average man is then she is shorter then the average woman and really she is probably more shorter on average for her gender because to me she is 5'1 not 5'2. My experience in life is that short women have the most clueless concept of how tall other people are. 5'7 range for Kit maybe a quarter to half inch more.

rob could you please downgrade kit to 5ft6 its not that hard to notice he is shorter than richard madden who is no taller than 5ft8 if you ask me

I go back and forth on his height based on what picture I am looking at. His height seems to vary from picture to picture, even with the same people in them. But here is one with Rose on vaca both wearing casual flat shoes. If she is the 5' 6" she claims then Kit is definitely 5' 8"
Fisticuffs said on 13/Sep/17
@Tryion, not in that episode. You can clearly see she's in a small heel, not high heels.
Tyrion said on 10/Sep/17
@Fisticuffs they didn't have similar footwear. They always give Emilia very high heels in the show.
said on 9/Sep/17
My guess is 1.68 with same shoes there is a 4 cm difference.
said on 7/Sep/17
He was only a few inches taller than Emilia Clarke in the season finale of Game of Thrones. Like 3-4 inches at most when they stood in front of each other. And they were in similar footwear.
C'mon. I struggle to see more than 5'6" for Kit and that's if Emilia is even the full 5'2". She claims 5 ft remember.
Ragingmanlet said on 6/Sep/17
Looked 5'8 in game of thrones
pit said on 1/Sep/17
5'11" without shoes is the correct height for this big man....I have met him personally.
said on 1/Sep/17
Rob, I meant his morning, out of bed height. It's obvious he couldn't manage 172 at night.lol
Editor Rob: out of bed, yes 172 range is believable.
said on 31/Aug/17
Rob, can he pull 172 cm off right out of bed or more likely just about 171.5cm in your opinion?
Editor Rob: I don't think he could manage 172 at night, it does seem too much for him, from all we've seen over the years of Kit.
Adamz said on 31/Aug/17
I think it'd be nice to assume he can get that full 170 as he claims a whole 5-8, but honestly i think he is just shy of it.
My Guess is 169cm.
Angela said on 28/Aug/17
Reading through the comments, I think Kit is definitely somehwere between 5'6 and 5'7. Probably on the lower end. In certain pictures with guys around 5'8-5'9, Kit's eye-level is at their mouth-level, indicating about Kit's ~2-3 inches shorter. Kit is far shorter than Richard Madden (Richard wearing normal dress shoes, Kit wearing boots with a likely thicker sole), his eyes at about Richard's chin. I'm giving 5'6.25.
said on 26/Aug/17
When you guys guess are you guessing the height barefoot?
Editor Rob: we are always thinking of height without any footwear. That way, everybody is treated equally.
Alasnackbar said on 23/Aug/17
@highlysuspect u know that jorah and davos are both over 6 feet right ?kit looks 5.7-8 range
Tyrion said on 22/Aug/17
He's definitely 5'7". Maybe even a tiny fraction more but not less. Too many pictures around to prove otherwise.
highlysuspect said on 21/Aug/17
This season his outfits at dragonstone make him look particularly small. Looks 5'6 and much much smaller than jorah and davos
Euron Greyjoy said on 21/Aug/17
Yeah Daenerys calls Jon small but she's dripping wet when they're together lol women
Pete said on 19/Aug/17
The last couple of Game of Thrones episodes have been calling out how small he is, lol.
Anonymous said on 19/Aug/17
5'7" seems a great listing especially if Rose is 5'4.5". In heels he is 1 inch taller as she would be 5'7" with a 3 in heel which is common. There in equal shoes he looks almost 3 inches taller. He does look tiny next to alot of the female cast from GoT but then many of them are over 5'8" so when you add heels into the equation they are walking around as 5'10" men.
Miguel said on 19/Aug/17
Always thought 5'9 from Game of Thrones. Boots gave him height probably, solid 5'7 is my guess
Greg said on 15/Aug/17
A new fan photo has surfaced and Kit and Rose are A: TINY compared to the fans they're posing with and
B: nearly the same height. Kit is hardly 5'7.
Definitely not 5'8
Peter175 said on 15/Aug/17
David, a 5'4.5 woman wearing 3 inch heels and a weak 5'7 man wearing 1.2 inch dress shoes so of course he ends up being a little taller. Also she usually bends her knees and drops height in photos like most women tend to do in heels. While Kit is always military posture with her
He's 5'6.5-75 imo. Looks far too short compared to Richard Madden and the cast of testament of youth to be anything above 5'7
Angle said on 14/Aug/17
Kit is the new Tom Cruise when it comes to people having ridiculous stories about his height.
Personally think he's a flat 5'6 nothing less.
HonestSlovene said on 13/Aug/17
5'4" is funny but I can believe 5'6.5"-5'7", looks short, not average or tall.
said on 12/Aug/17
So many of you guys in here are exaggerating so much...Kit cannot be shorter than 5ft 7/ 170 cm. Just look at pictures with him and rose Leslie on the red carpets. It says she is 5.4/ 164 and she obviously wears around 8-10 cm heels and is most of the time as tall as Kit on the red carpets.
I think she is shorter than that
said on 11/Aug/17
Just spent another good hour or two looking at his height. He appears to be around 5'7" on his "good" days, but most of the time appears a small fraction under. Maybe 169 at worst. Very large head, wouldn't even look small on a 6'2" guy.
Rob, do you think his is head large too? What do you suppose his length and width is?
Editor Rob: his head doesn't really look large for about 5ft 7 (or just under it), of course a bit more than average but not hugely so.
said on 11/Aug/17
If Rose Leslie is 5'4 and Kit barely looks taller than her here
I wonder if he's closer to 5'5.5? Or just 5'6 disregarding their hair and possibly the perspective of kit being slightly in front of rose.

After watching the latest episode of GOT I would have to agree with the others. He seems shorter then Nathalie Emmanuel even though he appears to be wearing boots with a bigger heel. It may be time to drop him to 5'6.75in or less.
Peter175 said on 5/Aug/17
According to Rob, Aaron Paul isn't even a full 5'8.
Kit badly needs a downgrade

Javier said on 31/Jul/17
He wears lifts a lot so it's hard to tell I would say 5'6.5" or 5'6.75" but I have a hard time thinking he is 5'7". Still a great actor regardless. Hey Rob does Sansa wear a heel on Game of Thrones because in recent episodes she looks about 2" or 2.5" inches taller.
ana said on 26/Jul/17
thought he was 2 inches shorter than that, looks tiny
Bee123 said on 20/Jul/17
Does look shorter than Corden maybe he is more

Had to get pretty high on his toes to hug Corden. Looks nearly 2 inches between them imo
Peter175 said on 18/Jun/17
Not three inches, but maybe over or near 2 inches
Marcello said on 17/Jun/17
It's quite obvious from the recent season that Sansa is at least 3 inches taller than him.
Gary said on 29/May/17
This is a legitimate estimate. John Bradley-West may or may not be 5'8," but there's a clear cut difference between Kit and John. Kit, to me, appears to be a solid 5'7" His picture with Peter Firth also confirms this.
said on 14/May/17
Kit's a strange case. With many 5'7 they look decent in person but short on screen. Kit has a very tall stage, like almost 5'9 in GOT, presence but looks quite short in person. Maybe it's his footwear? Anyway I would never go above 5'7".
Rob what are the chances of you meeting him and putting this to rest?
Editor Rob: unless he goes to one of these events...which isn't impossible.
John Davis said on 10/May/17
Thought he was about 5ft 9 seems taller or similar height to other cast members on game of thrones. Surprised
said on 29/Apr/17
@Peter175 I agree, Kit needs a downgrade to at least 5'6.75. Though in his defence he actually holds up pretty well against Mcavoy (not the best photo).
Link: Click Here
Lynn said on 25/Apr/17
Ha. He could be 5' flat, I just don't care...lovely darling, lovely.
Peter175 said on 18/Apr/17
Kit is 5'7 on his best day. Needs to lose a quarter inch at least imo. It's laughable to think him and Mcavoy would measure the same height. The only time Kit looks 5'7 is with Bradley and that's because bradley slouches a lot
Kit is 5'6.5ish
Carmen said on 18/Apr/17
Met him in Great Portland Street station, he is close to my height, a fraction under it, I'm 169cms throughout the day. So I'd say 5'7" in the morning 5'6.25" at night ~ 5'6.5" guy
said on 15/Apr/17
Here's a picture of Kit standing between costars Taron Egerton and Colin Morgan at a photo call for the film 'Testament of Youth'. You can clearly see all of their footwear. Keeping Colin and Taron’s listed heights in mind, how would you guys estimate Kit’s height (based on this pic)? Rob, any thoughts on this one?
Editor Rob: not over 5ft 7, but he is quite close to it...a chance of a tiny fraction under.
Amy said on 12/Mar/17
Saw him at a pub in London. 5"7 is very generous. He was wearing flat shoes and was about 5"5.5 to 5"6. Short guy but still very handsome.
Nasir said on 2/Mar/17
He could be a bit under 170 cm mark. He has that small look, even with lift boots.
Shredder said on 2/Mar/17
Lucky to be 5 '7 , but I doubt he is as low as 5'6. 5'6.75 seems to be the best estimate I'd give

5'5 is out of the question. 5'6.5 certainly isn't though
Pal said on 12/Feb/17
If you type in Kit Harington beach you get to see a lot of pictures with him with no shoes on and he looks incredibly tiny. Just watched Pompeii (good movie btw, surprised people hated it so much) and you can tell that they took extra measures to not make him look so small. I think he wears lifts a lot.
I would guess he is in the 5'5 to 5'6 range. He never seems much taller than his 5'4.5 girlfriend. Good actor, like him a lot. Just not a big guy at all.
Nova176 said on 8/Feb/17
His proportions are actually very bad for looking tall/average.
He looks shorter than his actually height because of his large tall head and narrow frame. He also seems to have short arms.
He does seem to dress very well which can make one believe hes taller than he is
Shredder said on 5/Feb/17
Somebodies height needs to be fixed , Steven Yeun has an easy 1.5 " over him
delancey said on 27/Jan/17
I try not to downgrade but I really do think 169. No way is he 5'8" like he claims. I'm 174 and that would be like me claiming 5'10".
Nova176 said on 21/Jan/17
Isaac I think the same goes with all people of all heights. Kit's 5'8" claim is certainly not true but he isn't that far off. It's usually when people height fraud its up to the nearest inch or in many cases, up 2 inches. For example 5'5 guys claiming 5'7 because its short but not that short, and 5'7 guys claim 5'9 which seems like just below average, 5'8 guys claim 5'10 which is basically average, 5'10 guys claim 6ft because of the standard we associate with 6ft ect.
IMO if anything you will find more frauders trying to reach 6ft in the 5'9-5'11 range. I know guys my height claiming 6ft. It's usually shorter guys (5'8 and below) and taller guys (6'1"+) that are more likely to give you an honest claim
I disagree about 173 being average range also. I don't see much difference between 5'7 and 5'8 as a strong 5'9 guy, both are on the higher end of short and 5'8 might be near low end of average. i think that range is the most ubiquitous range where neither inch up nor down matter. not like the difference you get from 5'6 to 7 or 5'8 to 9 which is MASSIVE. hell I consider myself slightly below average (Which I think is 5'10.5 for young people. If you aren't a strong 5'8 with some decently bulky footware youre going to look short a lot of the time, especially with young people.
I'm not hating on your hate just giving my insight
Tiago said on 16/Jan/17
He looks have 1,72 to me.
Mike Jones said on 14/Jan/17
He's one of the best looking 5'7" guys even more than tom cruise. Perfect proportions and face. Makes me less insecure about being 5'7.5"
Victor Surratt said on 30/Dec/16
Good listing, 1.70 is okay for Harrington
Isaac said on 30/Dec/16
I'm 5'8" (1.73m) at night there's no way Kit can claim to be my height for a couple of reasons.
1) On the Tonight Show he looked at least 5 inches shorter than Jimmy Fallon who is listed 5'11.5". My brother is that height and in pictures the difference is noticeable but only slightly, I look one size down from him, but Kit looked dwarfed by Fallon. He was also dwarfed by Jesse Pinkman who I believe is one of the only legit 5'8 guys around.
2) I saw Kit at the GoT season 4 Red Carpet Opening a couple of years ago and received an autograph. He appeared to be half an inch shorter than me but I was in converse while he was wearing dress shoes with what seemed like a 2 inch heel. So the fact that he had at least 1.5 inch more footwear than me and was already maybe 1-2cm shorter indicates that he is probably in fact around 5'6".
This would corroborate my claims from the tonight show. I'd bet my money on 168cm morning height and 166/167cm at night. It's people like Kit, Iwan, Alfie, Isaac that give 5'8" guys a bad name. The problem is all 5'5"-5'7" guys claim 5'8" bcs it falls within the average zone, and then you have ridiculously cocky 5'8" guys claiming 5'10". This leads to disproportionate misconceptions in society's view on certain heights. Now that I've told you I'm 5'8", unless you're my height you'd think im short whereas in fact I only feel slightly under average and pass for normal 90% of the time (unless im in Denmark that is). Rob I'm sure you're probably accustomed to coming across numerous false 5'8" claims. These ppl try to steal our height! XD

170cm seems fair. He seems too close to John Bradley's height to be anything lower.
Josh Jeffords said on 19/Nov/16
Tiny guy looks 5 7 in shoes and maybe 130 his acting is on par with size.
He could be as listed has short arms so looks shorter will never see 5 8.
Looked 5 6 with djimon who is a tall guy.
slurkapfson said on 19/Nov/16
171 morning, 169 ish evening. he consistently looks only a passable 5'7 in press photos and web videos. 170 ish for the core of the day. listing is correct imo
said on 18/Nov/16
Rob, you think Kit has a higher chance of being above 5ft7 (like 171) or below 5ft7?
I think it's strange that the avg guesses for him are 5ft6.5~. Zero chance he's below 5ft7 imo and a good chance he's a fraction above
Editor Rob: Peter, there is a chance he is a bit under or a bit over, I think the best mark to leave him on is 5ft 7 though.
said on 31/Oct/16
Rose is listed as a 1,64m in here. Their height gap doesn't seem very big. I would go 1,69 tops for Kit.Never 5'8.
Daniel said on 19/Oct/16
He has similar frame as me, so 1.69-171 is possble for harington
Dinny said on 18/Oct/16
5'6.5, Look at his pictures with Rose.
rockitbaby said on 3/Oct/16
1,68/1,69 for him. Nothing more.
Chris said on 3/Oct/16
Even with some very solid footwear and serious weight training he gives up too much height and body frame size to 5'8-5'9 actors like Sophie Turner to be a full 5'7. I think 5'6.5 is closer to the mark.
Theo Arkless said on 2/Oct/16
Not too short
TheOme said on 22/Sep/16
Still see him at 5'6.5". He looked like he had solid footwear in MI5. Not a very reliable movie to gauge his height
said on 18/Sep/16
Kit is 5'7 tops. I don't know where he got this 5'8 measure.
Editor Rob: in the Spooks film with Peter Firth, he typically looked near 5ft 7 more than being taller or shorter, I think that mark is ok for him.
TJE said on 29/Aug/16
I think Kit could be a weak 5'7er who wears vans all the time;That would explain why he looks more 5'6 at times, but he's still a good inch taller than weak 5'6 Josef Altin.
Jadd said on 30/Jul/16
Yes, I agree a half inch-inch lower is closer to the appropriate mark

white said on 25/Jul/16
"i'm five feet eight minus one"
said on 10/Jul/16
What're the chances of his height being lowered Rob?
Editor Rob: I think this mark is probably a fair reflection of what people have guessed over the years
said on 4/Jul/16
How much could the height differ from morning to evening?
Editor Rob: on average, maybe between 1.5 and 2cm.
Charlie said on 1/Jul/16
I think Kit is 5'6.5" at most when comparing him to his co-stars. Especially if Josef Altin is soon to be considered 5'5.75".
said on 30/Jun/16
Ok, for a long time I thought the idea that Kit was 166-168cm was an exaggeration, but after seeing a video with George RR Martin, John Bradley, and other "shorter" GoT actors for scale, I was floored by how small Kit actually looked. Here is a pic that offers some insight into the height scaling that I witnessed...Click Here
. John, who is a reasonable 173cm, towers over George RR Martin and Kit Harrington, who look around 168cm. Now, admittedly, we don't get to see footwear with this pic, but I think we can agree that Kit may actually be 168cm at his "peak" in the morning.
Charlie said on 29/Jun/16
I doubt John Bradley wears shoes with as much lift as Kit. Also, looking at the image of Kit with George R. R. Martin, he looks 5'6"-5'6.5". Rob had also suggested that John Bradley walks around at 5'7"ish without standing tall (due to poor posture). I think a half inch downgrade is necessary.
Bradi said on 26/Jun/16
He looks on par with John Bradley which is 5 ft 8 in. I don't understand these 5'6'' claims.
I think he should be upgraded... I don't see an inch of difference between them.
Charlie said on 26/Jun/16
After looking through photo comparisons, he does look like he is a solid 5'6.5". Not seeing the flat 5'7".
Rollo Tomasi said on 23/Jun/16
Doesn't matter if he is short. He is still good looking and bad ass. I don't like Game of Thrones because all characters are idiots or psychopaths but he is one of the few I like.
Lendal said on 22/Jun/16
I'd say Kit's around 5' 6 1/2", maybe no more than 5'6".
He never looks more than a couple of inches taller than girlfriend Rose Leslie (5' 4.75"), despite her being in flats and him having shoes with a heel to them.
robertven said on 21/Jun/16
Rob, this guy is 1.68 m NO MORE
lelman said on 20/Jun/16
Jesus I do feel sorry for certain actors who get so much flak for their height.
Flat 5'6"? Come on there is no way he is that low, he may dip just below 5'7" but not by much. I think this listing is fair for him, looked the same as Alfie Allen, who Rob has met.
Dinny said on 6/Jun/16
I saw him in real life and I guarantee it that he is not above 5'6.75. This dude is maximum 5'6.75 when he wakes up in the morning and 5'6.25 in the evening. He needs half inch downgrade, Rob, please. Stop being lenient, he is 5'6.5 through out the day.
imho. said on 30/May/16
170cm, bare feet, makes sense. I sense that he migh appear shorter than he is. below 170cm is way too low.
Dmax said on 26/May/16
Was glimpsing on couple pics of him he looks so short even when standing by himself. He needs a downgrade to like 5'5 or something.
tiny said on 24/May/16
Ghoto said on 23/May/16
In ep.5 of Game of Thrones, he looks quite a bit shorter than Sophie Turner @ 5'9ish (Sansa) when she's giving him the coat.
Dmax said on 22/May/16
But Jimmy Fallon is standing closer to the camera....so maybe he is that height for real.
Dmax said on 22/May/16
This dude looked so tiny I'd give him 5'5 doesn't even look the 5'7 next to Jimmy Fallon like Justin Bieber did.
Powerhouse said on 20/May/16
Looks 5'5.5 next to Jimmy Fallon in that clip.
said on 14/May/16
Is a lot smaller than Rose Byrne in heels Click Here
Peter175 said on 21/Apr/16
His head is gigantic. Even bigger than Tom Cruise's probably. Makes him look even shorter despite having a great torso-leg length. Accurate listing, he is a solid 5'7. A bit below average but not very short by any means
Skeptic said on 16/Mar/16
@Getalife: Wrong. You can predict someones height purely by photographs, and no, you can't take peoples word for it. Most of them lie about their height and add at least an inch.
TJE said on 21/Jan/16
If this is the case, then Alfie Allen is weak 5'7.
said on 19/Jan/16
Didn't you have him listed as 171 cm a while back Rob?
Editor Rob: yes. With a lot of people I've seen in person, I think around 5ft 7ish is maybe as close as possible, he may well hit 171 but maybe earlier in the day.
Getalife said on 8/Jan/16
People you can't tell someones height purely by photographs.
If he says he is 5ft 8 then he is probably that, or just under.
said on 31/Dec/15
He looks really small Click Here
What would you say his weight is Rob?
Editor Rob: looked over 140 near 150's maybe, at least in Pompeii he looked like he put on a few pounds.
said on 29/Dec/15
He looks to edge out Alfie Allen in that shot where they are standing near the pool, but has an obvious footwear advantage. He's a very flat 5ft 7 if not a fraction under.
Editor Rob: 5ft 7 on the nose is probably the most realistic mark to put him on.
said on 27/Dec/15
In your website Alfie Allen from GOT is listed 5'7.
In these pictures Kit Harington seems to be smaller than him considering shoes and hair. Am I right?
Editor Rob: typically Kit can look roughly 5ft 7, I think 7.25 is about the most I'd guess him at now, with 5ft 6.75 probably the lowest I'd estimate he could look.
Dan said on 2/Dec/15
In some pictures he does look to be even a little lower than 5'7.
JV said on 6/Oct/15
You're quite right, but on second thought he does seem to wear a thick heel a lot, maybe that could be why he appears taller, especially on Game of Thrones.

Howcome he looks taller than John Bradley in every picture if he is listed shorter?
[Editor Rob: bradley can walk around like a 5ft 7 guy, but I think standing tall John would be bigger.]
maybe flat 170cm?
said on 21/Sep/15
Could he possibly be a flat 170 cm, barefoot, nighttime ? (5'7")?
[Editor Rob: 170 is very arguable for him, a fraction over 5ft 7 is about as much as I'd argue for him.]
said on 17/Sep/15
Yeah, 5'11 is a little too optimistic! You're suggesting he's not even 5'9, actually! Anyway, he actually "convinced" imdb to put him at his claim! You should add him, just to make them downgrade him to 5'8 again (or at least closer to that than 5'11)! And, since i'm watching GOT, 5 season now,do you have any idea on the young guy who plays Tommen? 5'7-5'8?
[Editor Rob: Tommen isn't much taller than Cersei, 5ft 7 range in that season is possible.
I will add Daniel this year.]
said on 15/Sep/15
Did he claim 5'11 or 5'9? I didn't even know he was Donachie's son, to be fair... So, did you meet him?
[Editor Rob: I've seen him several times over the years, he complained about imdb having him at 5ft 8 when he is 5ft 11!
the funny thing him and his mates actually got mjf standing, Here
...the guy behind Daniel claims 5ft 11 (and is a lot nearer that in person than daniel).]
said on 13/Sep/15
Rob, did you meet that Daniel Portman guy? He's listed at 5'11 (which i highly doubt)... Maybe somewhere in 5'9 range? He looks average in GOT...
[Editor Rob: he did claim that mark, he made a point of it once on twitter! He's a good inch shorter than his dad Ron Donachie...]
Balrog said on 28/Jul/15
Fair claim, most of guy at that height would claim more. He probably wakes up at 5'8''

[Editor Rob: if I have time I will try to get a photo]
said on 17/Jun/15
Rob there is even an article dedicated to the height of this man Click Here
Honestly after all the photo evidence and the fact that kit is often in boots I think it's a safe bet he is a weak 5'7. At least drop him to 5'7. This guy never looks over 5'7 ever.
like myself said on 2/Jun/15
reminds me of myself, height wise, 171 cm mid day probably, around 170,5 cm at night. The hair and thin body adds to him looking taller. The reason other "shorter guys" might look taller than him, is that they also wear heeled shoes, or shoe lifts. Don't be so Quick to call out 5'6-5'5, just because someone looks shorter than other also short dudes.

I dunno, I think this guy looks an honest 5 ft 8 at some angles. But 5 ft 7 for sure.
Pizzaman said on 14/Apr/15
Therefore, 5'6.5" for him.
said on 14/Apr/15
Barely taller than 5'4.75" MAX Rose Lesie and definitely shorter than John Bradley. Also seems very similar to the woman behind him. He probably even has a footwear advantage on all. Click Here

It might be weird if Isaac grew taller because his head is already way too small for his body and it won't grow any bigger of course. He'll look totally disproportionate. But he might, i finished growing when i was 17 i think.

Rob, how tall do you think Isaac Hempstead Wright is? Two inches taller than Kit?
[Editor Rob: somewhere in 5ft 9 range now...he may not be quite finished growing yet.]

You no one can ignore the straight-on photos with Tinie Tempah, though. Not trying to toot my own horn, but it's easily the best shot of any of him with anyone else of known height. He's even got a footwear advantage and is clearly an inch shorter than Tinie. Even being generous, It'd be hard to even give him a full 5'7". Maybe a flat 5'6" is too low, but he really is barely much more than that.
said on 6/Apr/15
No more than 5' 6" - all the photographic evidence points to that, but sometimes Rob just ignores all the evidence. What's guaranteed is that Kit will NEVER allow himself to be photographed next to Rob.
[Editor Rob: I don't see him as 5ft 6, although even a guy around 5ft 7 could look under it for sure at times...but look at him with a guy who is in that near enough 5ft 6 zone Click Here
. me and that guy
or Hardy and same guy
seems legit said on 25/Mar/15
seems correct, looks 170-171 cm next to 5'2 emilia Clarke,
said on 15/Mar/15
OK, Rob, here's B. Cumberbatch next to T. Tempah, both in dress shoes:
Comparing that photo to your own photo with Cumberbatch I think we can safely assume Tempah is very close to your height...
Just like @MD pointed out, however, Harington has actually footwear advantage on Tempah and still manages to look more than an inch shorter, camera angles taken into consideration...
Rob, I can't believe I'm saying this but, could it be possible for him to be near Dave Franco's height?!
[Editor Rob: he is somewhere around 5ft 7, I don't think I'd say he was as short as Dave though.]
said on 13/Mar/15
168 I would say is min. and 170 max. Anything below a legit 5'6" is hogwash though, even at night...
On set with 5'8.75" Peter Firth for "Spooks: the greater good" (excuse the quality):
I would say:
Morning: weak 171
Noon: weak 170
Night: strong 168.
Also don't forget Aaron Paul's forehead is kinda big so the difference in their heights is probably bigger than their eyelevels might otherwise indicate.
Humble guy btw, and very capable of succeeding in the action film industry, even if he was 5'4".
Surfer said on 3/Mar/15
168cm is my guess
MD said on 28/Feb/15
Yeah, the photos I posted with him and 5'8" Tinie Tempah show more than an inch difference, with the crazy thing being that Kit actually has a significant footwear advantage. I was being generous by even giving him a flat 5'7".
said on 25/Feb/15
Rob, I'm pretty sure he's below 170, he just wears lifts A LOT, just compare his leg proportions:
Prob. 1-2 " lifts:
No lifts (probably):
With 168cm George R.R. Martin:
I would say 168-169, he can make 176 Richard Madden look 182 sometimes:
Also his hair gives him around 3 cm...
said on 24/Feb/15
hes been downgraded i see. is this his end of day height or his evening height ?
[Editor Rob: I think it is still debatable if he is only 5ft 7 flat, but it isn't impossible at night he would hit that.]
said on 14/Feb/15Click Here
easily in need of a larger downgrade 5'7 max!! Come on rob
said on 27/Jan/15
He needs a downgrade.
Here he is with 5'7.75" Aaron Paul:
With 5'8" Tinie Tempah, with Harrinton even having a significant footwear advantage:
Even discounting the photo with Paul, this guy is a flat 5'7" at the most.
said on 25/Jan/15
He looked rather short in Pompeii. Flat 5'7 guy IMHO. He is shorter then Aaron Paul: Click Here
said on 18/Nov/14
This can't be right. Here he is with Tinie Tempah, who is a very weak 5'8", himself:
To ad to this, Tinie is in some very flat shoes and Kit actually has an advantage being in dress shoes.
Chris said on 17/Nov/14
If he was at least 5 inches taller, he'd be a 8/10 minimum.
said on 12/Sep/14
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]
Word1234 said on 11/Sep/14
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.
