What a real 6’2” looks like. Funnily enough, I knew a man a lot like this one, who was also 6’2” and had the same kind and colour of hair.

No way under 6ft2. Consistently taller than 6ft1 range guys

He definitely looked tall to me in Love Actually, so this is a good listing for him.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Apr/18
Honest claim, I'd stick with this...but if I had to choose between 187cm and 189cm I'd probably go to the latter
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/Jan/17
189cm is possible
berta said on 23/Jan/17
looks little tallerhtan his claim.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/Apr/15
I think he could be a strong 6ft2 guy.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/15
I mean check out Click Here Click Here he can give the illusion of being 6'3-6'4 at times, he looks similar to Paul Bettany actually in the second one. I remember I posted a photo a while back though and he was think a guy who had him by like 8 inches or so though!!
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/15
Rob can you add a photo and TV series My Family, Citizen Khan and Death in Paradise (he's best known for those I think). I once thought he was 6'4", his skinny frame could give the illusion of being near it at times. Most people would describe him as a lanky guy I think.
Editor Rob
Jenny watches that Death in Paradise...I think I'd avoid visiting that island, also I never want to visit Jersey either.

Rob, how tall would you say he looks in this picture with Firth and Ben Barnes?
Editor Rob
in that instant he can appear over 6ft 2.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Oct/14
Rob, is a fraction over 6ft2 possible?
Editor Rob
an honest 6ft 2, at times he could in the past appear a bit over.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/13
Did he edge out Firth in Love Actually, Rob?

Memory's a bit hazy...
Editor Rob
can't remember

I think he's a stonewall 6'2. Probably 6'2.5 or so. I saw a lot of clips on him from My Family and looked at some stills of some romcom he appeared in with supposedly 6'4 and 6'5 costars. For some reason he's had listings of 6' and 3/4" recently.

I celeb spotted him yesterday filming in St Margarets (Twickenham) and he is enormous - I would say at least 6'4.

If he looked "enormous" how would that Darius Danesh look alike look to you LOL.
Shaun said on 22/Dec/10
I have no doubts at all that Kris a legit 6'2", in fact for some reason he used to give an illusion of 6'4" because of his lanky frame but if you really look at pics of him he doens't look more than 6'2.
Shaun said on 22/Dec/10
Those dudes he are with are very tall obviously, especially the Iranian looking one as he's the shortest there. How often do you see a 6'2" guy look like a little runt like that? I think maybe they are just his friends but the middle eastern looking one does look at least 6 ft 8.
Shaun said on 21/Dec/10
I used to think he was 6'4". His lanky frame gave off a taller impression. [Click Here Click here]. If Kris is 6'2" which I believe is correct how tall is that huge Iranian looking dude? Any ideas Rob?

Editor Rob
kris might be standing poor making the tall guy look even taller like 6ft 10, although I've no idea who he actually is
James said on 29/Nov/10
Yeah I was thinking that as well anonymous.

could he really only be 6'1?
George said on 8/Apr/09
I think he's one of those people who's build gives a really tall impression. After watching a ton of episodes of my family, I have concluded that he is acctually 6'2 - 6'2.5, which is shorter than I originality thought.

When he is next to 5'10 Robert Lindsay, he appears taller than when other 6'2 guests have stood next to him. Yet when 6'4 guests appear on the show, he is definitely a fair bit shorter. It's just something about his build.

Robert lindsay is listed as 5'10, and kris has a forehead on him, meaning he's 4 inches taller. However, he wore converse, so I think this guy is 6'2 and change.

I used to live near Windsor where he is living, and when I saw him he appeared to me as if he was very much taller than the height of 6"2. I am the height of 6"0 and he appeared to be at least 3 inches taller than I.
(p.s. sorry for bad english, it is not mother tounge)
George said on 7/Jan/09
I was just watching an episode of My Family, The actor who plays Ben (5'10), had all three children stand up dead straight, and inspected them one by one. When he got to Kris, there was definitely a 4 - 5 inch difference, and - he was wearing converse! I think he's 6'3.

Here's what I'm talking about:

If Marshall straightens up he simply doesn't look like a 6'2 guy at all.

Anyone who watches Peep Show would recognise what the difference between 5'10 Jez [Rob Webb] and a 6'1 + guy, Superhans [Matt King] looks like:

The difference in height between Marshall and Webb is considerably bigger. This guy could be pushing 6'4 ...
Scott said on 26/Jul/08
I've queued behind this guy a few times in the local supermarket. I'm just shy of 5'11 and he seemed noticeably taller than a man who should have basically 3 inches on me.

He certainly looks taller than this in the flesh ... also seen him up close in a play for 2 hours with Rob Webb [Peep Show] and he truly TOWERED him and he's a legit 5'10.

Adding this to Kris' comments below that Editor Rob highlighted - I genuinely suspect that his listed 6'2 is rare example of a downgraded bogus height he has created to land more roles. This does happen ... just as short actors round up to be more castable, the tall guys round down so as not to miss out on castings.

Having watched him in the four hander at close quarters for 2+ hours he looks much more like a stonewall 6'3+ to me ...

Looked 1 inch taller than 6'1 Paul O' Grady?
Editor Rob said on 19/May/08
If I was legit 6ft 2 that'd be an ideal height, but I saw a Kris interview where he said:

"I wouldn’t mind being two inches shorter, though....It makes you stand out in a crowd.”
l0ck n l0ad said on 20/Aug/07
I must say that out of all people here listed as 6'2" he seems to be one of the 'tallest' 6'2"ers. I've seen his appearance on numerous episodes of My Family and you can easily see he's one tall fella.
