@ Sandy Cowell - Or one that has been licked by someone!

Alternatively he could look like an action man with a pea sized head! He he he!

@ Nik - He'd look like a partially melted ice cream - with a large body and long legs if he owned a smaller head!

I'm so honoured that I provided him with his 100th comment!

6ft3.75 peak,
6ft3.25 today.

His head is quite large!

I like both back-to-back photographs of Rob and Lars Mikkelsen! He really does look to be at least 6'3" and the average vote (6'3.2" after 22 votes!) is very realistic for his nowadays height!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jan/19
6ft3Β½ is the least I'd argue for him peak, nowadays he does look more 6ft3 flat though
Bobby said on 19/Jan/19
He looks fractionally taller on the left picture than on the right. Was that back when he was still at peak height? The left picture I mean.
Editor Rob
Compared to Benedict that weekend (on left) he did seem 4 inches taller, so 6ft 3 and over range, but I think by last few years he won't be over 6ft 3, last time I seen him I think 6ft 3 was how he looked.
Sandy Cowell said on 27/Dec/18
Facially, Lars and Mads look SO ALIKE!
Height-wise, however, Lars is all of 3+ inches taller - but he doesn't make hilarious beer adverts, like Mads for us Brits to laugh at! πŸ˜‚πŸΊπŸ‘Œ

I would love to see Lars acting in something some day soon! I'll have to check out what's available... πŸ˜€

Peak - 6ft3.5
Now - 6ft3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/18
Still looks at least 6ft3
Zampo said on 24/Oct/18
On the left photo, looks 6'3.5-6'3.75 (192 cm). On the right photo, he is tilting is head slightly down, I reckon if he looked straight would be about 6'3 flat.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Oct/18
Rob, do you think Lars could be more like 192cm peak and still holding 191cm?
Editor Rob
Well it's not too impossible...
Jakob said on 10/Oct/18
Rob, isn't he a little young to lose a whole half inch? Also, I noticed a lot of posts by another 'Jakob'; if he was on this site first should I change my username? It's my real name so convenient but if the other was created first I could get a new one.
Editor Rob
By 50's some guys will lose a cm, others won't till their mid 60's.
It's fine to post with Jakob.
LB Jones (6' 2 1/8) said on 9/Oct/18
Rob should pose like this back to back with every celeb from now on for consistency. At least in these photos, Rob and the celeb have the same posture and are in line with one another making it far easier to judge. Lars looks around 6'2.5 here. Cannot accurately gauge his brother though. i'd say 5'11 maybe.
Sandy Cowell said on 26/Sep/18
I have chosen Lars Mikkelsen as a prime example of Danish guys. He's a huge 6ft3 - and looks it too! The Danes featured on this website average out at over 6ft, which goes to show what a tall bunch these Viking lads are!

@ Myself - Maybe he's lost some height as a result of thinning bones, though this does seem to be more of a female problem. A half-inch loss at 54 does seem a bit excessive, especially for a man.

I will go for 6ft3.5 peak and half-an-inch less for today's height.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 30/Jun/18
Chances he hold 6'3 1/8 than a flat 6'3 now.
MAD SAM said on 18/Jun/18
Over 192 cm at his peak, 191 cm right now hopefully won’t lose any more height
Myself said on 15/May/18
Only 54 years old now and such a great loss?!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/May/18
Rob, maybe 6ft3⅝ peak?

That’s really 192cm on the nose
Editor Rob
I suppose it could be arguable.
Tall Sam said on 13/Mar/18
He could probably claim 6'4" if he was so inclined and be believed, with his slender build he kind of looks near it in these photos.
Jordan87 said on 12/Mar/18
@ Jim Hopper,

He is clearly taller than 6'2 in the picture to the right. What is this crazy talk?
Jordan87 said on 12/Mar/18
I can tell you he aint no 176lbs in the photo with Rob.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 8/Feb/18
We don’t even know what time his measurement took place, neither if he was measured as low as 191.5 or high as 192.4
Dream(5'9.5 said on 7/Feb/18
Rob, when someone (In this case, Lars Mikkelsen) is measured at 192 cm (or 6'3.59") would it usually mean that he was in the 192 cm range or just roughly that range?

Either way, I think 6'3.5" is the lowest I would argue for Lars.

Editor Rob
I think anybody measuring will call out whatever mark the person is closer to...of course somebody could be 192.3 or 191.5 and the same person might call out 192.
Bobby said on 19/Jan/18
He looks taller than 6'3 on the left picture, and closer to 6'2 on the right picture.
Canson said on 1/Jan/18
6’3-6’3.5 peak

Today 6’2.5-6’3 with Rob
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 31/Dec/17
Rob, out of curiosity, who left you with a taller impression, Lars Mikkelsen or Guy Henry?
Editor Rob: both can look similar actually...it's possible Henry would measure a little more at peak than Lars.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 30/Dec/17
6’2” is beyond bulls@#!

6’3.5”-6’3.75” at peak is more festive and 6’3”-6’3.25” nowZ
TheManWithNoName said on 28/Dec/17
@Jim Hopper

He looks shorter in the pic on the right because he is looking slightly down, which lowers his eye level etc.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Dec/17
Don't know where you're getting 6ft2 from, Jim
Jim Hopper said on 27/Dec/17
Looks 6-2 in the right shot and 6-4 in the left picture.

Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 18/Dec/17
dreampuff, hey buddy, it’s me slim. I’m not editorrob, but I would classify 6’4” as the start of the very tall range, considering I saw a few 6’4” men recently, they’re giants, they never blend into the crowd, they’re tall, forever..............

I’d say Lars physical prime is 192.0 Cm.
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 14/Dec/17
He’d be taller than the Rock claiming 6’5”! 🀣🀣🀣😝😝😝

Rob, since you mentioned 6’2” is classic tall, what would you classify Lars at?
Dreampuffe(5'9.5") said on 6/Dec/17
He beat out Gwendoline Christie and Kevin Sorbo.
travis said on 4/Dec/17
he 6'3 but he isnt over 6'3 anymore meaning by that he shrunk about a fraction so he 6'3 barefooted
Dreampuffe(5'9.5 said on 25/Nov/17
Rob, would you say Lars is the most legit 6’3.5” person you’ve met?
Editor Rob: I think in his 40's he would be near it, but nowadays can't see him over 6ft 3.
Johno said on 9/Nov/17
Gave him lowest listing i guess.
Junior said on 3/Nov/17
Lars claim 6'3 and always look this tall. Maybe rob met him in the morning and had a bit less shoes than Lars and forget he could had chance taller for a morning measurement so listed him 6'3.5" at first and second time later in the day he drop to his lowest 6'3.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 25/Oct/17
Looks 6'2.75" in the right photo and looks 6'3.75" on the left. I wonder why there's so much variation.
Nik said on 16/Oct/17
Yes, I would say he is certainly 6'3"!
travis said on 9/Oct/17
he freakish tall
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Sep/17
Rob, when did you first meet him?
Editor Rob: February 2014
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 4/Aug/17
Looks a weak 6ft4 in the older photo and a strong 6ft3 in the newer photo
Bard said on 11/Jun/17
Looks close to 6'4 on the left, and 6'3 on the right.
Matthew Robinson said on 8/Jun/17
This listing really seems perfect as is to me. 6'3.5"' peak and 6'3" today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 24/May/17
Maybe 190.5cm today at his low but that's 6ft3 on the dot
Mark(5'9.25") said on 22/Feb/17
Maybe, but I get a taller impression from Lars than say Zachary Levi and Chris Hemsworth.
S.J.H said on 15/Jan/17
I think Lars Mikkelsen falls in a very solid 6'3 like between 190.5-191cm that is why rob put him down at 6'3 instate of 6'3.25
Sandy Cowell said on 9/Jan/17
I have just gone through the comments to find out if Lars and Mads are brothers and I find that they are, which is fantastic to know when you find things like that as interesting as I do! The only clue was the name and by that I include his first name, which I know to be Danish.
I haven't seen Lars in anything as yet. I wonder if he's as good as his brother? Is that even possible?
Mark(5'9.25 said on 26/Dec/16
For some reason, he looks 6'4" or a bit over in the picture.

I would say 6'3.75" at peak without question. And 6'3.25" now. He gives a similar impression to Roland Mann.
S.J.H said on 11/Nov/16
I did rule out his more 191cm than 190.5cm and he look pretty close to 6'3.5 guy henry frame and lanky proportion
S.J.H said on 9/Nov/16
Rob, didn't you think just 6'3 seem too low? I can't see him under 6'3.25 else where
Editor Rob: well I think he has lost a fraction of height as he reached 51-2 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Oct/16
Editor Rob: I think 10 years ago he was measured at that 6ft 3.5 zone. At the sherlock event I seen him up close a few times that weekend and he might be anywhere in 6ft 3-3.5 range.

In that case

Peak: 192-193cm
Today: 191-192cm
Mark said on 30/Sep/16
He doesn't look under 6'3" and easily gives a taller impression of near 6'4"
Willes189 said on 16/Sep/16
This guy looks 6'4 range in the photos with Rob! 6'3 is a huge joke for this guy..

6'3.75 real height
Ice said on 17/Aug/16
looks like a 194 cm out of bed guy
mrtguy said on 30/Apr/16
Don't know why but he looks shorter
Andrea said on 18/Apr/16
Rob, do you think he might be undercutting himself by saying to be 6'3 or he could really measure around 6'3 flat?
Editor Rob: I think 10 years ago he was measured at that 6ft 3.5 zone. At the sherlock event I seen him up close a few times that weekend and he might be anywhere in 6ft 3-3.5 range.

I mean a man like Colin Salmon up close looks an inch taller.

He's lost some height in his upper back. Could be taller with better posture.

192-193cm range
Danimal176 said on 2/Feb/16
That's one tall looking 6'3.5" guy. Easily over 6'4" earlier in the day.

"Lars Mikkelsen's height is 6ft 3ΒΎin (192.40cm)"

I know because I am that height myself :)

In the second pic he doesnt look a 192 guy.More like flat 6ft 3
Ice said on 13/Nov/15
hes the typical Scandinavian . His height range is pretty common for a nordic man .
S.J.H said on 13/Nov/15
Just a legit 6'3 guy. He hold well at 190.5cm through the day unlike most 6'3 actor fall below 190cm

Looks an inch shorter in this newer pic..

192cm and 80kg is rail thin

---

It's quite thin, yes. I don't know about "rail thin". At 192 cm I think 70 kg is more what I'd call rail thin.

Anyways, I think 6'3.5" is bang on for Lars.
hal said on 24/Jun/15
He's a strong 6'3", but he doesn't say he's 6'4". Wow, respect. And his ectomorphic build makes him look taller.
OneNamePlease said on 11/May/15
Rob, Why looks 194cm in the photo?
[Editor Rob:
He claims 6ft 3 and looks that range in person.

In this photo with Rob he gave the same impression as 6 ft 5 Joe Manganiello

Chris said on 12/Nov/14
This change of direction to the camera seems to add quite a bit in height. When i saw this pic in the thumbnails, i thought that guy would be at least 6'5 tall.
Emil 183 cm said on 2/Oct/14
Rob the G- hunter, you look badass :)
TJE said on 24/Sep/14
Rob, does your hairline surpass Lars's chin?
[Editor Rob: in that photo about half inch over his chin.]
Sam said on 3/Apr/14
In the picture, Lars looks like he's Max Von Sydow's long lost son, even the same build, size and posture.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Apr/14
Lars Mikkelsen looks Danish/Scandinavian. I've also thought Mads looks more eastern European.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Apr/14
Manganiello said in another interview his brother is 6'7 rather than 6'8" which looks about right.
Sam said on 10/Mar/14
I agree they look fairly different. Mads Mikkelsen is another famous actor who seems to be the runt in stature of a bunch of tall brothers (although, from what I know, Lars is is only sibling). Other examples I can think of are John Krasinski, Eric Bana and, so he claims, Joe Manganiello. On the hand, Alexander Skarsgard seems to be the tallest or nearly the tallest of that family.
Arch Stanton said on 9/Mar/14
I hadn't realized it was his brother. Something familiar about the broad cheekbones but aside from that not much resemblance and a lot taller!
Sam said on 18/Feb/14
He looks right around 6'4" here to me. With his brother Mads, he generally looks from 2 to 3 inches taller, slightly less difference than their pictures with Rob would suggest.

This guy looks pretty towering and then you see him next to Suurballe!! Kind of like seeing Dolph or Seagal with Scott Schwartz!
Vegas said on 14/Feb/14
that photo with robs 188cm friend really does highlight how bad mcpartlins 190cm online listing really is
Mathew said on 14/Feb/14
Well he's a guy who actually looks as tall as advertised to me.
Lmeister said on 14/Feb/14
This guy is 192cm. Scandinavians claim barefoot height not shoes on. Lars makes hollywood "6ft3" guys look somewhat short ;) There is a lot of pics of him and little brother Mads(182cm)standing next to each other. Always 10cm difference between them.
[Editor Rob: well talking of perspective, look at Lars with killing co-star Morten Suurballe...he 'appears' in the photo at least 3.5 inches shorter but of course he isn't...Morten was measured 195cm by the same agency!]
richkid123 said on 14/Feb/14
the top of robs head is around an inch and a halk under his nose. He is as listed. Seriously tall guy
Balrog said on 13/Feb/14
Is there a pic to compare him next to Mads Mikkelsen? Honestly this guy looks 6'4'' no less
Blaze said on 13/Feb/14
back to back pics never look accurate.
DMEYER said on 13/Feb/14
looks exactly 6 ft 3.5in 192cm in the pic 7.5in taller
MD said on 13/Feb/14
No, Ali baba. Ryan actually had to be given a half-inch. He was one of those rare listings that was actually closer to 6'5" than 6'4" and had to be boosted accordingly.
Dietmar said on 13/Feb/14
Martin Freeman is 4cm shorter than Rob. In this shot the difference is about 20-22cm. That would give Lars about 189-191cm.

Click Here

Its obvious the camera angle is giving Lars an extra inch with Rob.
[Editor Rob: the guy was measured 192cm several years ago...it's one of the few agencies who took and publish many measurements for actors...see the link at top, lots of body measurements...
]
Balrog said on 12/Feb/14
Rob but maybe 6'3.75'' is more accurate, that still is 192cm. I agree with everyone here. He looks solid 6'4'' to me.
[Editor Rob: 6ft 3.6 is bang on 192.]
SAK said on 12/Feb/14
Looks 6f4.
Ali Baba said on 12/Feb/14
Perhaps McPartlin isn't a legit 6'4"?
Arch Stanton said on 12/Feb/14
Looks bigger here, like a human ladder. Gives a 6'5" impression here to me.
MD said on 12/Feb/14
Actually, Rob, just go to your page with Ryan McPartlin. This guy looks at least as tall against you as 6'4.5" McPartlin did.
[Editor Rob: Ryan is a good inch taller...

The photographer Marko is close (1.5-2 feet away)...

I don't have as wide an angle as Marko uses with his camera, but here is the effect with my lense - Jenny at 192cm and me on the device (the platter is reversed to jenny's side at the top)...I am standing similar to what I'm doing with Lars, but of course the top of my head is further away so appears shorter. When you shoot close (my camera is about 2.5 feet away) you can enhance differences...
]
MD said on 12/Feb/14
Rob, it truly looks as if he were to stand straight or maybe just even face you, he'd have a just about a full head on you. I can't see him being under 6'4" unless there was some kind of major footwear difference between the two of you. He looks HUGE next to you.
Dietmar said on 12/Feb/14
Looks like a strong 6'4 to me.
