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.
juansito said on 16/Sep/17
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
Gosh said on 15/Sep/17
Forgot to attach photo. If rose is 5 6 then Kit is definitely 5 8 based on this photo of them on vacation both wearing casual flat walking shoes.

Editor Rob: believe me, Rose in decent heels 4 years ago with Me, certainly wouldn't have been 5ft 6 barefoot.
Gosh said on 15/Sep/17
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.
Greenapple said on 9/Sep/17
My guess is 1.68 with same shoes there is a 4 cm difference.

Fisticuffs 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.
Grey 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.
Grey 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.
Jynx43 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.
David 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.

Click Here

I think she is shorter than that
Peter175 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.
Greg said on 11/Aug/17
If Rose Leslie is 5'4 and Kit barely looks taller than her here
Click 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.

Met a few of his private security recently, they confirmed he is about 5'3 / 5'4
Chris said on 7/Aug/17
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
Shredder said on 4/Aug/17
Steven Yeun is barely 5'8 and has over an inch on him , 5'6.75 is the very tallest he is

Do u think just 1 inch difference?

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

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.
Peter175 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
delancey 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).

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
JJ 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?
Click Here
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
grizz said on 1/Mar/17
"I'm five feet eight".

You know nothing, Jon Snow
Peter175 said on 19/Feb/17
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
Peter175 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.
rockitbaby 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.

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
Theo Arkless said on 2/Oct/16

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
rockitbaby 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

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
Jagger 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".
172.4cm guy 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.
Hong Kong said on 20/Jun/16
From a Reddit thread on the ASOIAF subreddit:
"Kit is, at least, 5'6". When I went to cover Pompei at a press junket I walked passed him and he was at most my height (5'6"), maybe an inch shorter. He is very, very tiny."
Think he means at most here, not at least.
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
5'5.75"-5'6.25" imho.
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.
dan 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.
Mike 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.
Ryan 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.
CD 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.
Ryan said on 27/Dec/15
Hello Rob,
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?
Click Here
Click Here
Click Here
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.

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.

JV said on 3/Oct/15
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.]
Andrea 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.]
Andrea 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).]
Andrea 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''
john said on 25/Jul/15
He's very well proportioned. He might be even 170 but he just doesn't look short.
berry 5'9 said on 17/Jul/15
Rob, can you guess the height of a person by only looking at a picture?I have a girlcrush but i am insecure about her height. Can i send you a picture and you try to guess her range? Please contact me berry01011990@gmail.com ;)

In the books, Jon Snow is said to be smaller in stature compared to other men...it is known. And he's taller than me so as far as I'm concerned he's a 10, easily. :P

@Rifle
Personally, my guess for Daniel is 5'9.5.

word1234 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.

Therefore, 5'6.5" for him.
Pizzaman 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
Chris said on 10/Apr/15
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.
Chloe said on 9/Apr/15
Rob, how tall do you think Isaac Hempstead Wright is? Two inches taller than Kit?

Click Here
[Editor Rob: somewhere in 5ft 9 range now...he may not be quite finished growing yet.]
MD said on 8/Apr/15
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.
Dr JJ 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,
NightCrawler said on 15/Mar/15
OK, Rob, here's B. Cumberbatch next to T. Tempah, both in dress shoes:

Click Here

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.]
NightCrawler 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):

Click Here

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".
NightCrawler 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):

robert 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.]

Even discounting the photo with Paul, this guy is a flat 5'7" at the most.

To ad to this, Tinie is in some very flat shoes and Kit actually has an advantage being in dress shoes.

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.
Concerned 181 cm said on 10/Sep/14
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.

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.]
TJE said on 21/Jul/14
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.
Gheist 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.
Vladimir Horowitz said on 6/Jun/14
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".
Crypto139 said on 20/May/14
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.

Rob is he more like 171 or 171.5 ?
[Editor Rob: I think anywhere in that range he could be]
Balrog 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]
SaveUsY2J 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]
dude 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.

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...
Chris 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]
Emily 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.]
dude said on 20/Jul/13
He's definitely no taller than 5'8.

Click Here

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.
Bradi said on 3/Jun/13
On second thought, John seems to have a lil' bit advantage

Click Here

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''
hurricane brat 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.]
Duhon said on 5/Apr/13
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'.
