I should have added that the poet was Percy Shelley was one of the great and indulgent poets from the Romantic era, and was married to Mary Shelley, famed for the writing of the novel ‘Frankenstein’.

Laurence played a tall (what else?) and authentic Sir Christopher Hatton in ‘Elizabeth - The Golden Age’ alongside Cate Blanchett and Geoffrey Rush.

I’m now watching him in ‘And the Moonbeams Kiss the Sea’, an episode of ‘Lewis’, with Kevin Whately, and he looks taller than Kevin looked taller than John Thaw, certainly in the earlier episodes of ‘Inspector Morse’.

I’d say a strong 6ft3 for this interesting actor.

‘And the Moonbeams Kiss the Sea’ is a Shelley poem.

Looks like an about 6ft3 guy. More likely to measure under it than over it. 6ft2.75 or 6ft3 is what he looks in the main. Taller than I used to think though, used to think he was 6ft2.25 but then in Lewis did look around 2 inches taller than 6ft1 Tom Misen.

In this afternoon's 'Lewis', Sergeant Hathaway tripped a murdering scumbag up with his foot, and he tumbled down a flight of uncarpeted stairs. The next time you see him being interviewed by Lewis and Hathaway, it's from a hospital bed; serves him right! 😛👏🏅

Laurence gets 6ft3. 😄👌

Looks around this generally. His 6ft4 claim is in shoes most likely

Laurence looks a comfortable 6’3” in Lewis. Whately was 6’0” as a younger man, 5’11” today. Laurence’s father James, was 6’1” as a younger man. Hard to believe James and Edward Fox are real brothers, James 6’1” and handsome, Edward under 5’7” and
...............not handsome.

Could buy anywhere between 6'2.5" and 6'3.25" for him. I have trouble pinpointing a height for this guy. There are times when he can look genuinely slightly under or over 6'3''.

Yesterday evening I saw the third 'Lewis' episode ever, called 'Expiation'. It showed Laurence to be the tall and strong specimen of manhood that I always believed him to be, so I have no qualms putting down 6ft3 for him.

I loved the dressing down he (playing Sergeant Hathaway) and Lewis got at the end - from their female superior! Sergeant Hathaway was told not to 'look so smug about it'. His reply: "I'm not smug Ma'am. It's just the unfortunate shape of my face!"

Does look 6'3 not under it.

Laurence looks 6ft3 on 'Lewis', making 5ft11 Kevin Whateley look like a shrimp, though by now Kevin's very likely shrunk a touch!
I came to the same conclusion in the film 'The Hole', measuring him against 5ft7 beauty Keira Knightley! He could even have passed for 6ft3.5! The above photo is extremely unflattering! Those legs look like they belong to a much shorter man!

Rob can you add a photo? Funny, they have strong genes that Fox family, I always know it's a Fox whenever I see a photograph of one, the trademark blonde hair and brown eyes and slender frame. Emilia Fox also blonde and brown eyed. They all look remarkably alike, though height seems to vary a bit!

6'2 might be too low, to me in Lewis he looks in the 6'2-3 range.
Rory said on 3/Jun/15
Something doesn't add up though with Laurence Fox listed 6'3 and Kevin Whately 5'11 when there's maximum 3 inches between them probably more 2.5 inches.
im thinking this guy 6'2(im not convinced by 6'3 for him, looks more a lanky 6'2 bloke) Kevin Whately 5'11.5, would you agree Rob ?

Erm... wrong; that is James D'Arcy photographed with Laurence Fox.
Jakob said on 17/Oct/14
Looks 6'3" on Lewis, hard to believe 6'4", though.
Jack said on 22/Aug/14
This guy looks 190-191 range. Probably he measured 6'3 1/2" once and rounded up to 6'4".

That's indeed Jack Fox.

Here's a few pics of Laurence with D'Arcy:

They're not too good, because Fox is bending in the first three. In the last one, his posture is better than D'Arcy, but the latter is closer to the camera. I would say that D'Arcy is probably a hair taller than Fox though. Hard to believe Fox's 6'4" claim, since D'Arcy claimes 6'3". 6'2.5" or so seems likelier.

Erm...that isn't James D'Arcy in those pics, it's Fox's younger brother Jack.
MD said on 1/Aug/12
It's funny, because in that pic, I think James D'Arcy is giving up more height than Laurence.
Editor Rob said on 30/Jul/12
I just found a quote actually where he claimed 6ft 4 as his height.
MD said on 30/Jul/12

Does it seem likely that Laurence is maybe ever-so-slightly shorter than 6'3" James D'Arcy, perhaps not a full6'3"? Or is it just the angles?

I don't think his stance is helping Fox that much, I've always thought Fox looked his claim.
