Maggie Grace's Height
5ft 9 (175.3 cm)
American actress best known for playing Shannon in TV series LOST and Althea in Fear the Walking Dead. In film she has had roles in Taken, Lockout and The Fog. This photo is from a 2006 Collectormania event.
Most actors aren't tall. I'm 5' 9" and some change so I'm usually looking down and if there are any kissing scenes, they put me down lower so I don't look like the Jolly Green Giant and I'm used to that.

She's so right saying that most actors aren't tall!

Maggie is tall, but slightly shorter than Melissa Bolona.
Nik said on 3/May/19
At least 5'9"!

@ Rob - Do you or Maggie have any footwear advantage? If so, how much?
She had a boot of sorts from what I recall, but I don't think it was much more.

@ Mincer - Well that's made mincemeat out of me, hasn't it? I'll go and stand in the corner for the rest of the duration of this 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?'
Ha ha! But people look so young these days!!!!! 😉
Cheers Mincer - and thanks! Merry Christmas to you too! 🎄☃️😁

Maggie played Neeson's daughter the one he goes looking for
Sandy Cowell said on 14/Dec/18
I take it that Maggie plays Liam Neeson's wife in 'Taken'. I remember the woman to be tall and fair-haired.
She is leaning inwards here, but I take Rob's word that she's 5ft9. I keep meaning to show 'Taken' to my brother, so maybe this will be the trigger!
Nik said on 8/Nov/18
I think that she is losing a bit of height there!

You should add fear the walking dead to her credits. Love her in that

She look to have lost some weight recently and may top in at lowest 118lbs.
said on 4/May/18
Is she losing more height than you jere Rob?
Yes, I think she was a bit taller than me.
Dubstep said on 23/Apr/18
Maggie is playing quite a big role as Althea in FTWD now. 5'9 looks about right judging from her appearances on the show and the above picture.
Gladstone Screwer said on 30/Mar/18
In the later Taken films she looked around 5'11 to me. If she was only 5'9", how would she be looking down in kissing scenes ?🌽
Junior Hernandez said on 7/Feb/18
Maggie always give me impression of closeer to 175cm. 5'8.75" a shout.
MAD SAM said on 16/Jan/18
176 cm she looks even taller in movies
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 19/Dec/17
same deal as somerhalder. 175.
robson said on 24/Nov/17
How can she be taller than Rob by inch if she looks inch shorter in that photo. O.K she is slightly back rounded but even if staightened she would not be anymore than equal to Rob and I don't suppose for Rob as male to wear higher shoes? If I'm accurate she probably is not even 5'8 and not 5'9 for sure.
Matthew Robinson said on 15/Jun/17
Hard to tell exactly how much height she's losing due t =o posture here.
said on 13/Jun/17
I agree, she is not standing at her tallest and she is tilting her head.
Anyway who is the kindest celeb you ever met Rob?
Editor Rob: the majority I feel have been quite pleasant, very few fall into the category of unpleasant.
I think it helps that they have agreed to go to events, it's not like on the street where they might be going about their shopping or off to a meeting and you have paparazzi or photo/autograph hounds on your back.
I couldn't put up with that...but it's the price of being in film and TV. It was probably a lot less intrusive in the 40's and 50's compared to the 90's onwards...
KH said on 18/May/17
She is dropping a lot of height in that picture with Rob. If you can't see that you really shouldn't even be discussing height. She isn't standing close to straight
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Apr/17
I am watching Maggie in 'The Fog' remake right now and she looks tall and very willowy. As she is wearing jeans in this, you see just how long her legs are!
I'm going to ignore the little picture with Rob, who yes, does look taller, but if you look carefully at both shoulder levels, you can see Maggie's are on par with Rob's. Also, Maggie has a smaller head.
I've decided upon 5ft8.75 for her today.
Celebheight User 555 said on 7/Jan/17
5'7 im seeing here.
said on 10/Nov/16
Weak 5'9". Athletic - maybe 130 lb, Rob?
Editor Rob: yes Sarah, she was very slender in person and I'd be surprised if much over 130ish pounds.
S.J.H said on 2/Oct/16
Shes a short jolly green giant with big rob above. LOL. Look 5'7 with rob but might be higher in person @ 5'8
Leonardo 1.73m said on 17/Aug/16
Maggie Grace is 5'8.5, very tall girl
said on 15/Aug/16
What is her eyelevel? @Robert Paul
Editor Rob: in person probably a fraction more than average, so possibly 4.6-4.7
mrtguy said on 28/Jan/16
Rob looks taller!
Emma said on 28/Dec/15
okay she's leaning a bit in the photo but was she barefoot? At the most, she would be 5.8 based on that photo.
Silent_D said on 19/Mar/15
5 foot 9.
said on 2/Feb/15
Hey Rob I am 6'1" barefoot. Where would the top of her head and eyes be next to me if we stood next to each other barefoot?
[Editor Rob: probably right around your eyebrows range and maybe eyes below your mouth area.]
Amaze said on 3/Jan/15
guys come on you can tell she's leaning. she lost 2cm from that lean. standing up straight with rob she'd be a 5'9 legit 175cm girl
saw taken for the first time yesterday, I know I know. it was good and she was attractive. defo a tall girl, strong tall. famke is taller than her by 7cm but she's a 5'11.5/182 very tall girl+ and liam neeson is 6'4/193 hes very tall. a tall casting
lala said on 1/Dec/14
It's quite obvious that she is not standing straight.
Oanh said on 10/Nov/14
Morck says on 6/Apr/13
She dwarfed most of the characters in lost. 5'9" is generous, but feasible.
LOL at your use of the word "dwarfed". Come on, you don't dwarf somebody unless you are much, much taller...not an inch or two.
Just said on 25/Sep/14
In "Taken" she didn't have to look like the Jolly Green Giant. Both Liam Neeson and Famke Janssen are a lot taller than she.
TNT said on 3/Jun/14
No disputing this height. She always looked tall. Has very long legs.
said on 18/Mar/14
Is her head closer to 8,5 than 9 inches? Or even under 8,5 inches?
[Editor Rob: not under 8.5, how much hair she has though...I would say her head was a bit above 8.5]
Hannah said on 26/Jan/14
5'9" she's leaning in a bit
Nat said on 11/Jan/14
5'9" she's tall. I think she is slouching in that pic with you Rob.
said on 4/Jan/14
Rob, she looks about 5'9, but there are some scenes where she looks the same height as 5'7.5" range Naveen Andrews. Camera angles maybe?
[Editor Rob: a bit of loose posture and she will look barely 5ft 8...I think even in the film Lockout at times with Guy Pearce she only looked 5ft 8]
said on 4/Dec/13
Did you have a shoe advantage over her there? If she wore ballerina shoes in the picture, and Rob had a 0,5-1 inch shoe, i could believe this listing. Rob is lifting himself up a little with his pose on her shoulder and she's dropping quite a bit of a height with her pose.
[Editor Rob: she had a brown boot on, they were somewhere in 1-1.25 range I think, so really not much more than me that day...but I think she did feel taller.]
said on 2/Dec/13
She looked the same height as Diaz on Knight and day and the movie premiere. Plus she looks shorter than you here. Even if she was barefoot on the photo she wouldn't be 5.8 let alone 5.9. Rob do you add height to people you like?
[Editor Rob: I do try to distance myself from who they are and what they have been in... ]
said on 28/Oct/13
She must be a little shorter than that. Compare her to Sebastian Stan, who is ONLY 5'10" and a half. Maybe 5'11" tops. She's wearing HUGE heels, and still isn't as tall as him.
said on 11/Sep/13
do you really think she has a true inch on you Rob?
how about 173-4cm?
[Editor Rob: a chance she's a fraction shy of 5ft 9, but I think she can look 5ft 9]
Sain t said on 1/Sep/13
Looks a little generous but meh. Rob knows his stuff.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 30/Aug/13
5'9" is correct. The best height for a girl.
Silent d said on 23/Jun/13
Dirty Pitts said on 20/May/13
I agree 5'8" tops
Greg said on 15/May/13
She had a thicker shoe than you and you're still taller Rob. Maybe she is slouching a little bit but that is not 5'9. 5'8 max
Balrog said on 8/Apr/13
In some scenes barefoot with Ian Somerhalder they were both legit 5'9ers.
jimmy said on 7/Apr/13
She didn't look 2.5 inches taller than Katie Cassidy in Taken.
Morck said on 6/Apr/13
She dwarfed most of the characters in lost. 5'9" is generous, but feasible.
iCelestia said on 24/Mar/13
In Californication S06 Episode 11...she has flip flops and david duchovny has standard men shoes.They're both fully stretched and she is up to Hank's(David's)ear.She is a victoria's secret standard girl!
J.Lee said on 26/Jan/13
rob u look taller
thorterr said on 14/Oct/12
i just dont but the 5ft 9 even with the leaning towards rob and she has a slight advantage with the extra thicker show ,,downgrade to 5ft 8.5
Silent d said on 7/Oct/12
That is not a few inches. Maybe an inch. Rob saw her in person. If he thought she was shorter than him then he waould have listed her as a lower height. 5 foot 9.
John said on 26/Sep/12
She had thicker shoe that you that day Rob? You still manage to look a few inches taller.
Silent d said on 14/Sep/12
5 foot 9.
tony t. said on 30/Aug/12
I'm shocked. I've seen the show and always took her as 5'6 or something. Wow.

Rocky said on 17/Dec/11
LAN Jiao, she can be 140-150 lbs easily. Height adds weight, and 5'8'' and 140 is similar to 5'4'' and 105-119. There are some NBA centers that are 7 feet tall and weigh 275 lbs, but still look anorexic.
sheldon said on 1/Oct/11
for those who can't tell she is squatting and leaning over
LAN Jiao said on 19/Sep/11
maggie grace is everywhere 174-175cm and slim 120-125pounds. but some idiot from other sites listed and comments her as 5ft8 140-150pounds. really make me puke and laugh..
Phil said on 12/Sep/11
Maggie is 174 cm = 5 foot 8.5 She is 5 foot 10 with heels.
Hansen said on 19/Jul/11
she flactures between 174-175.

He's not taller than her -_-

Phil said on 26/Apr/11
Rob, she is not 5 foot 9. You are taller than Maggie.
She is skinny. I think she is 5 foot 8 or 5 foot 8.25
said on 6/Jun/09
She's a weak 5ft9 probably. 174-175cm. Rob was she nice in person?
[Editor Rob: she was nice with fellow fans from what I saw. Seemed happy meeting people.]
Yaspaa said on 19/Feb/09
Jlee were the cast of 'America's Next Top Model' at this convention? because even if they were I would still doubt that 10-15% of the girls were 5'10 or over.
Lego said on 7/Feb/09
she certainly looks no less than 5'8 and no more than 5'9.5 so 5'9 is her correct average.
in LOST she looked 174-175cm to me.
said on 5/Feb/09
rob do you think she can tell if she is taller than mamun right away? or do u think she might not know and say were close? Rob, is five ten very tall for a girl? I'm five ten and it seems like lots of girls are five ten. Out of 150, 20 were five ten or taller at the AVN convention this year. I counted.
[Editor Rob: I don't know]
J.Lee said on 5/Feb/09
Rob, got to tell them to stand properly so we can judge well.
said on 4/Feb/09
yea.. but Mamuns eyes look higher. how come rob looks taller than her? are they sitting dowN?
[Editor Rob: she unfortunately isn't standing with the same posture as us in either photo.]
rob89 said on 3/Feb/09
Yeah, 5'9 looks about right. She's barely taller than Mamun even though she's leaning.
J.Lee said on 3/Feb/09
I did a study. I went on a dating website match.com and out of 86 girls, 20 said they are five nine or above. So out of every 4 girls, 1 is five nine. 10 were five ten, 4 for six foot and 30 were over 5 foot 8. 47 were over five seven. So is five nine THAT tall? what's your opinion?
Also, I was at the AVN convention earlier this month and I counted how many girls were taller than me. I'm five ten, five ten 1/2 in mornings. Out of 148, 11 girls were taller than me. It's not entirely accurate maybe, but close. Probably about 7 were the same height as me. Does that sound reasonable?
Then again some were wearing heels, but I used my best judgement since I consider myself and EXPERT when it comes to height.
Anonymous said on 28/Jan/09
you could put her at 174 and a half centimeters, however you do that.
Realme2008 said on 27/Jan/09
Yeah, she looks 5'9". I've never seen her in anything, but she's gorgeous! Such a leggy babe!!!
Alex said on 27/Jan/09
I can see 5'9 due that shes leaning slightly.
Tony said on 27/Jan/09
she is fine
said on 20/May/08
OK, the 10th through the 12th photo in this link shoes Lynn Redgrave (5-9) standing right next to Maggie Grace. Maybe its flats versus heels. Click Here
dmeyer said on 15/May/08
she looked at least a tall as somerhalder so bot 5 ft 9
said on 12/Nov/07
Hmmm...I just found a pic of Maggie Grace and cutie Zoe Kazan who is listed at 5-4.5 but lookes 5-3. Click Here
Even if Maggie is barefoot and Zoe is in 4" heels this picture doesn't make sense.
sam said on 23/Oct/06
That's cool, Padraig...have you hung around the whole cast of Lost or just happened to have encountered lost cast members individually?
[Padraig: No, I've only encountered them individually.]
sam said on 20/Oct/06
To each their own, but to my eyes all the principal women on Lost are hot (except maybe Danielle or Rose), whether they're 5'2" or 5'9".
[Padraig: Have also seen her in the flesh and yes around 5 feet 9. VERY smiley. Speaking of Lost and your name being Sam, I've also seen Sam Anderson (bernard) and he is one of the nicest actors I've ever spoken too.]
Franco said on 19/Oct/06
1.75 cm is about right for her.
on a personal note i don't think she's nice looking, not my type at all, also when i saw her personally at the festival i didn't change my mind.
i'm crazy for "Emilie de Ravin", now that's proper female :-D
Pik said on 3/Oct/06
Oh yes, she is gorgeous. Will you show us a picture with her Rob?
[Editor Rob: sorry, not on the site at the moment I'm afraid...
but just email me if you want and I'll show you it and might say why]
Viper652 said on 2/Oct/06
So shes better looking in person Rob? She is pretty attractive.
[Editor Rob: sometimes you see actresses up close and realise how much the makeup hides...not with this girl.]
Editor Rob said on 2/Oct/06
God, this girl is gorgeous. Saw her yesterday, she was in around 1.5 inch footwear and she did look near 175cm, although when I got a pic with her she leaned/slumped down a bit.
CelebHeights Editor said on 20/Feb/06
"I still get producers and studios telling me to lose weight....I'm lucky because I'm 5ft 9 and naturally skinny."
Pik said on 14/Feb/06
In an interview for TeenHollywood she said: "I’m 5’ 9” and some change". So she could be 176, 177 cm maybe.
[Editor Rob: thanks Pik for spotting that!
her other comment is worth noting from that interview:
"[Tom Welling] He’s so tall. Most actors aren’t tall. I’m 5’ 9” and some change so I’m usually looking down and if there are any kissing scenes, they put me down lower so I don’t look like the Jolly Green Giant and I’m used to that. So it was nice [not to have to do that]. Sometimes, they’ll shoot things a certain way to make the guy look taller"
larry said on 13/Oct/05
a magazine stated that her height is 178 cm which is equivalent to 5'10. is this true or not. thanks a lot.
[Editor Rob: she doesn't quite look that big...although put any girl at around 5ft 9 in heels and she'll make guys like dominic monaghan and naveen andrews look quite short!]
Alyssa said on 23/Jul/05
that seems right. i saw a picture of her and ian somerhalder who is like 5'9 and she was about the same height. she's so pretty. i love Lost.
