How tall was Lynn Redgrave

Lynn Redgrave's Height

5ft 10 (177.8 cm)

British actress best remembered for roles in films such as Peter Pan, Gods and Monsters, Spider, Georgy Girl, Smashing Time, Shine, The Happy Hooker, Girl with Green Eyes and The Virgin Soldiers.
I was 5-foot-10-inches tall when I was 15
I was 5'10" but I've recently been measured and I'm 5'9" and it's just awful. Perhaps if we were on the space shuttle and there was no gravity, we'd be taller again.

I dont think she ever was 5ft10. 5ft9 peak and 5ft8 when she shrank before passing away.

Hey Rob, should we complete the set and add Rachel Kempson?


5ft8 is probably fair for her, looking at old photos with Michael. Out of Africa, Georgy Girl and The Captive Heart (w/h her husband) are what she's most known for.

Rob why is it that you still have her 5'10 when she clearly admits she's 5'9 but can't upgrade Nadja auermann's height when she's taller than what her agencies try to claim her at? This website just proves that it is fake.
Editor Rob: she did pass away so is at her peak height.

Caught Girl with Green Eyes earlier. In one scene she was described as a beanpole or stick insect or something. She did look an honest 5 ft 10. No idea how tall her mother was but the girls obviously got the height from Michael who I think was near enough 6ft 3.
Editor Rob: her mother was Rachel Kempson, she was listed in early spotlight directory as 5ft 8 inches, which for an actress in the 1930's and 40's is very tall.

Interesting, her and Vanessa could have ended up 6 ft!. Yes, Maureen O'Hara was always considered very tall in Hollywood in that era, even by director William Dieterle who was reportedly 6 ft 5 himself!

@Rob, can you add a photo and update, she died in 2010. Add films Gods and Monsters, Peter Pan, Spider, Georgy Girl, Smashing Time, Shine, The Happy Hooker, Girl with Green Eyes and The Virgin Soldiers. If you see here walk at 1 minute 30 here Click Here she looks stand out tall, I don't think 5 ft 10 is hard to believe. How did she fare with Vanessa?
Editor Rob: been a while since I looked at them, but it is believable she lost height too in latter years.

Lynn was a solid 5'10" at peak.

Watch the video at around from 15:15 onwards:

She's noticeably taller than Peter Finch (about 5'10" in shoes) even in the tiniest of heels.

Lynn was a solid 5'10" in her youth . Check her in this clip from "Girl with the Green Eyes" :

Watch her from 5:28 on . With very small heels she looks much taller than Peter Finch ( probably aroound 5'9" without shoes )and about a full head taller than Rita Tushingham . She also looked 5'10" compared to both James Mason and Alan Bates in "Georgy Girl" .
