Nicholas has perfected the ideal 'evil stare' for his part as Krycek, his 'X' Files role, but he looks as becoming as ever in the above photograph.

6ft and half-an-inch. 😀👌

Definitely shorter than Amell on Arrow so I think 6ft0.25.
Jani said on 28/May/20
I just don't see him even as 183cm. Always looked a bit shorter than Duchovny. Always looked around 181-182cm range guy in X-files with Pileggi and Duchovny.

Yeah he was 6 1 in footwear no doubt maybe 6ft .5 in xfiles he is looking old..
Personally by xfiles i have him edging mitch easily taller than davey and well under an old cancer man.
I have to rewatch he may have worn boots being the tactical type so could get nice boost without a cheat.
Very underrated actor played some interesting roles and well.

The average guess (6'0.25") could be spots!
Jesse Dumont said on 24/Jul/19
Definitely looks 6'0.5" here. Closer to 6'1" than 6'0.5" I believe. You guys are crazy.
Oneiroi said on 19/Mar/19
Looks 6"0.5' next to you, but no more than that.
Zampo said on 2/Nov/18
It's a reasonable listing. 184 cm is the nearest cm mark I think he would measure to. He is over 6'0 but not sure by how much. 6'0.25 could be a possibility.
Carmine said on 2/Oct/17
Pretty tall man, looks solid 6"0.5', he could pass for a 6"1' claim
World Citizen said on 28/May/17
Looks 181 to me
Pierre said on 2/Apr/17
He look like 5"11.25' next to Rob but he seem have a strong forehead so i would say he's around 5"11.75'
berta said on 10/Feb/17
dont know if he is taller than duchovny is he really?
Pierre said on 29/Aug/16
Around 6"0' imo with this picture

Rob what do you think about this photo ?

Personally i have always thought that Lea was smaller than Ducovnhy
Editor Rob: when I rewatched x-files, I thought generally Nicholas might just edge out David, but at times they could look pretty much within the same range.
Rick said on 1/Jul/16
This guy is clearly looking up to legit 6'1 Stephen amell in arrow. I'd say 6'0 flat

Rob, what do you make of this photo?

That's a cracker...all the gang!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/May/16
Strong 6ft is as arguable as weak 6ft1 but then where does that leave Duchovny. This guy always looked slightly taller than him
Editor Rob: when I rewatched X-files I could see them looking quite close...within a fraction of each other.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/May/16
Rob, how likely is 6ft flat for him?
Editor Rob: I think he's over 6ft, how much is debatable.
Yo said on 2/Nov/15
In Arrow he was clearly shorter than Stephen Amell. I say 183 max 184. 6'-6'0.25
plus said on 7/Oct/15
@Lorne very true. He towers Rob he can't be less that 185 cm
SJH said on 26/Sep/15
He look like solid 182 cm range
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jun/15
@dietmar: Duchovny has a hair advantage.
Dmeyer said on 26/Apr/15
So 6'0.75 would be a better listing if he can look 184-5cm
[Editor Rob: I think he is 6ft 1 at a chunk of the day, but then dips under.]
Charles said on 8/Apr/15
6'0 , 600.5 with big head
dietmar said on 27/Mar/15
Lea and Duchovny are both 183cm.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Mar/15
Rob, are you confident this guy edges Duchovny?
[Editor Rob: I believe he can look anywhere in 184-5 range]
pablo77bar said on 23/Jan/15
This guy is between 6ft 0.25 and 6ft 1
I am a 6ft 0.5 guy and I with a person with 5ft 8 ( Rob height ) looks like too much with this guy
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Jan/15
William B Davis looks a proper 6ft3 guy in those pictures

Rob, have you looked at those?
[Editor Rob: I would say if you compared anybody on a street with one mid stride and the other full stride you'd find a difference of a few inches. In person both actually are very similar, William I think lost 1.5 inches from his own peak.]
dietmar said on 16/Dec/14
This guy is not 185cm. He's moore like 182cm Click Here Click Here

Compare him to Mitch Pileggi, who is a legit 185cm. William B Davis was surely peak 190cm.
Kourosh said on 14/Dec/14
rob, what would be his eyelevel 172cm?
[Editor Rob: his eyelevel could be somewhere around that, but he's probably more a weak 6ft 1.]
Crypto139 said on 22/Nov/14
Is it just me or is it that his head is bigger than I thought it was? I thought it was kind of smallish but here it looks biggish. So Rob what would be the length of it you would say?
[Editor Rob: I wouldn't have said it was big, but if your head is a few inches nearer the camera it can always increase a bit and look bigger than it is.]

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Oct/14
He edged out Duchovny.
judd said on 7/Sep/14
with rob he looks 6'-6'0.5 max to me, for sure not a full 6'1ish...
Danimal said on 3/Aug/14
Like Mitch Pileggi, Nicholas was also shorter than David Duchovny on the show (At least to my eyes).
[Editor Rob: I've been rewatching it, and at times they can vary]
Mathew said on 12/Apr/14
184 - 185 cm range maybe.
Lenad said on 12/Apr/14
I can buy a full 6'1 but not more
Alex 6ft 0 said on 31/Mar/14
6'0.5 may be more like it
Dom said on 31/Jan/14
He looks shorter than Duchovny on X-files by half an inch. Although he does look rather big next to Rob. Duchovny must be like 186 at least.
[Editor Rob: he's what I'd say was probably a weak 6ft 1 .

I don't think David looked taller, they were very close in season 2 eps, sometimes either could look a fraction taller.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Dec/13
"Nicholas Lea's height is 6ft 0.5in (184cm)"

I can buy 6ft0.75/185cm aswell. He looks nearer 6ft flat in that pic
myself said on 1/Dec/13
always thought he was shorther than duchovny like 5ft11
Matt 184.7-186.7cm said on 11/Oct/13
maybe 184 or 185.. his posture looks a bit leaning?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Sep/13
Around 6ft0.5-6ft1
cole said on 28/Aug/13
Looks in the 185 cm range, but maybe 6'0.75 is a better shout?
Jordan said on 22/Aug/13
6'0ish, Not full 6'1. Thats not 5 inches there. His min. maybe 5'11.75.
herber 185 said on 8/Aug/13
he doesn't look the full 6'1 - i think this guy is around 184.3-184.6 night time
tall/imposing guy anyway
Lorne said on 25/May/13
Are you joking? That is definetly over 4 inches between them!!@elijah
Elijah said on 9/Jan/13
I'm seeing 182-183 here. Not 6'1

Probably how I'd look with a 5'8.
Stephen said on 8/Jan/13
tall guy something between 184.5-185 seems fair enought
Truthman said on 2/May/11
6ft max! In dress shoes he was around as tall as Duchovny barefoot in one of X-files series.
Hugh said on 3/Jan/09
I remember him in X files. This is about right. Maybe 186cm. He was about an inch taller than David Duchovny.

"Unlike most of those elevator-shoe-wearing action stars, the New Westminster-raised Lea is a lanky, well-toned six-foot-plus" - Vancouver Province article.
Beckie said on 7/Dec/05
I met him two weeks ago when he came into my restaurant. I instantly recognized him as I was a huge fan of The X-Files and Once a Thief. He is indeed 6'-6'1"ish, unlike other sites that have put him as tall as 6'4". I don't know how they came up with 6'4" because it's obvious he isn't that tall. I myself am 5'8" (5'9" in my flat runners which I was wearing when I met him).

On another note, he is not a US actor. He is Canadian...and oh boy, does he ever have nice green eyes!
