Rob, what are the chances of you meeting this guy?

I know you've met his wife whose 5ft8-9. I think he could be a fraction under this maybe...
Editor Rob: wouldn't rule out the chances.

There's actually very little difference between Stevenson and MacFadyen.

I met him him whilst he was filming P&P near my town in 2004. I stood next to him whilst he signed an autograph, I was 17 then and about 6'4" and I was easily around the same height if not a smidge taller.

Like cohenite said, Stevenson looks a lot taller in "The Three Musketeers", but Matthew still towers over everyone else. Footwear, maybe? Stevenson's character is supposed to be a giant, after all.

I can buy 6'3".

Ray Stevenson towers over Matthew; Ray is listed at 6 4.

well, it's possible that he's 6'3", but to my eyes, he doesn't look 3 inches taller than 6'0" Jerome Flynn in the "Ripper Street" TV series, probably around two inches taller tops. As others have said likely around 6'2", though he doesn't appear to have wonderful posture and could be taller if someone stretched him out..!

He was the same height as Hugh Laurie on an episode of MI-5.

Let's make a deal between us: Whoever finds him first tells the other

i think he's taller than that, maybe 6'3 or 4...but he's a good actor, especially in pride and prejudice..
sarah said on 3/Aug/07
official bio says he's 6' 3" , and I believe he's that or more after watching "The Way We Live Now" (and if you've seen his DVD extra for "In My Father's Den" you know he's quite uncomfortable talking about himself for the camera.)

6-2 sounds correct for him, because he is clearly a big man.
It would really interest me, what type of person he is.

i loved this movie...they actually did a good job keeping his height fairly normal-looking, and i really wish they did more dvd interviews with him!

Having met him twice I can say he is definately 6'2''!!

to the editor: THANK YOU for putting his height here!! he really does look about 7" taller than Keira Knightley in P&P.
