I'm not super tall — I'm 5'11. It's when I'm in heels I look like an Amazon!

@ Lara - How tall are you?
Lara said on 15/Mar/19
She is tall but I think she is smaller than me. I guess she is 1.78 m.

Doesn't matter though Christian, I'm sure she's a lovely person. She actually looks pretty good for transgender, though should avoid extreme hair dyes.

You do realize she's transgender, right?

Agreed, Sam! She looks pretty tall next to other "inmates" in OITNB... She makes Taylor look a weak 5'8 in many photos, actually! She must this height!

Always stood out among everyone in the cast, while Taylor (5ft8) and Laura (5ft9.5) always looked tall but never stood out that much in any way. I think 5ft11 is accurate.

When you say head size,do you mean height or circumference?
[Editor Rob: length mostly]

5ft10ish. Looked very close to Prepon, and barely taller than Schilling.

Less than her claim

She looks very feminine, but her head size is "giving away the game" to me. She's lucky that Laura Prepon is a bigger-headed lady too, but heads significantly over 9 inches just dont seem to be a thing with cis-women. I think Laverne's looks a little over 9,25 inches?
[Editor Rob: yes head size is probably no less than 9.25]

She is not exactly she :)
[Editor Rob: let's try to respect her, she is an actress to me.]

Depends how you look at it on deciding whether she's "really tall" or not :-). She looks fine in the above photo but I g imaged her and soon cottoned on. It was actually the dyed hair which gave the game away, if she kept it dark or a deep red or something it would look a lot more subtle with her features. Still, she looks a lot better than most transgender do, best of luck to her! I'd have guessed more 5ft 10 in the above photo though.

Thanks for adding her, she's doing a really good job on OITNB. Would there be more chance she's a little higher than this listing or lower? She looks only marginally taller than 5'10 Laura Prepon i see.
[Editor Rob: I don't think she'd be higher than her claim]
