Looks a weak 6'1, 6'1 if he had a harder day than Rob.
187.5 cm for his peak height is the most i can give him

6'2.5" peak is a joke for him. I have to disagree strongly with this listing.
VelikiSrbinn said on 3/Dec/18
6'2.5? Seriously? He looks 5'11 lol
Editor Rob
He had lost some height but peak I think he looked over 6ft 2.

Rob, he's almost 70 years old. The average male by 70 will have lost over 1". Why is he the exception to not have lost any height? You can clearly see it in his neck.
Editor Rob

He was age 66 in this photo and just listed at what I think he was in the 80's.

@Patrick, that would make Rob 5'10 though, which he's not.
World Citizen said on 31/May/17
Looks 182 on the photo.
Patrick said on 5/May/17
I see 4 inches of difference, so it makes him 6'2" at LEAST.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Mar/17
He looks 186-187cm w/h Rob.

6'1.25' in the picture, 6'2.5" at is peak.
Giorgi said on 11/Jan/17
Is it me or this guy has excessively long hands. Him giving away an inch for Matthew McCaunaghey would do some justice ;))
berta said on 7/Jan/17
maybe 188 peak and 185 now?
Leonardo 1.73m said on 13/Dec/16
He has 70 years old and really he isn't with a forced posture like Rob... 6'1.5 here but I should go with a fraction under 6'2 for his posture.

Rob, if Kjell is no longer active, you might as well edit the description to "Swedish former weight-lifter and former actor,"
Editor Rob: yes Christian, it makes more sense.

Figure he is 6'0.5 there, around 6'1.5 in his youth ( He is almost 70). HE is listed at 6'3 So a 6'1.5 guy with a 6'3 Listing is pretty typical.
Moke said on 30/Nov/16
Didn't you always give max. heights in brackets, with current heights next to them, Rob?
It seems you're being inconsistent in giving comprehensible heights.
Editor Rob: if they were active in industry I would give current.
Danimal said on 30/Nov/16
You're way off on this one Rob. Looks MAX 6'0.5"-6'0.75" there. He is nowhere near 6.5" taller than you. 4-5" max.
Jordan87 said on 30/Nov/16

Based on the Pic Above he has you by a good 4.25inches. at age 67-68 he should have lost a good 1" I'd guess.
Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25) said on 30/Nov/16
Rampage is right, Rob. Please give him a current listing. He looks no more than 186-187cm today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/16
Well, he's appeared at UK conventions and you got a photo with him where you can gauge his height, I'd count that has active. Obviously he's not doing movies anymore though.

Peak: 189-190cm
Today: 185-186cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/16
Rob, why don't you give him that as his current height?
Editor Rob: Rampage, I've mentioned it but since he's really been only active in 80's I just gave him what I think his peak could be.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Nov/16
He looks bloody massive in Road Warrior
phil said on 28/Nov/16
dosnt even look 6' 1 there,but close to it
Peter 179cm said on 28/Nov/16
Doesnt look over 185 with Rob(if that)...I can't understand some of your listings Rob,it's as if you purposely exaggerate the height gaps.
Editor Rob: I never gave this guy a current height, just what I think he might have been in Mad Max, but today certainly wouldn't have said 189cm range.
MD said on 28/Nov/16
Must be the perspective in this shot, because he certainly doesn't look 6'2.5" here.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Nov/16
Rob, how tall today?
Editor Rob: Rampage, I think he looked at most 6ft 1 range today, but likely lost height.
Moke said on 28/Nov/16
6'2.5 is too high
MDV said on 28/Nov/16
In this pic he is 6 ft 0.5 inc....considering that he is loosing a bit he could be 6 ft 1.5 inc....But today he must not be 189 cm
Andrea said on 28/Nov/16
6'1.5? He looks 6' at most with Rob! Another guy who SEEMS to have lost a huge amount for his age...
Editor Rob: Andrea, this guy did look over 6ft, I think he could have lost 1-1.5 inches.

6'1.5 with rob
