Noel Clarke's Height
5ft 8 ½ (174 cm)
English Actor/Writer/Director known for playing Mickey on TV series Doctor Who and for films like Star Trek: Into Darkness, Kidulthood and Storage 24. In a comelime.com interview on being asked about possibly being a black James Bond, "I'm too short. I'm only five foot nine"
, which is a natural round-up from his own 5 feet 8½ inch
claim. I met him at Collectormania's in 2013/4, we had similar sneakers.
5ft 8 Rob and Noel

He ain't short!

I mean, dropped height or not, that's more than a two-inch difference. The half-inch at least needs to be pared. There's just so much evidence.

A lot of young people think 5ft 9in is short for a man. Not sure why as the average height for a 20 year old male in the UK and the US is still 5ft 9.5in. Of course that also means 50% of young men are shorter than that.

In response to his comment about James Bond I think anything is possible when you have 6’4.5 Rupert Everett playing 5’4 Charles I in the film to kill a king
Bobby (5'10) said on 18/Sep/18
No, James Bond is canonically 6ft tall. Just read the original book by Ian Fleming.

i am 174cm on the dot and i can confirm he shorter than me.

Can you take another look at this one? I thought I did a pretty good job with my previous photos, but here he is recently with a listed 5'7.75" Riz Ahmed:
I don't think he's really lying much...I could see how he measured himself 5ft 8.5, albeit a chance sometime at 9-10am.
said on 23/Jan/18
Looks the same as Rob, also find it interesting how he thinks he's too short to play Bond. He does realize Bond was originally intended to be around 5'8" right?
I think an average height spy fits in well. If you are over 6ft and very handsome, you'll stand out like a sore thumb.

Looks the same as Rob

Barely any difference between him and Rob. Noel's 5'8.25" max.
World Citizen said on 6/Jun/17
Looks exactly as listed.
Cameron said on 9/Apr/17
Perfect photo for comparing heights. I think you edge him out Rob So he's probably a bit under that listing. Still a solid 5'8" at the worst, could pass for 5'9".
Original said on 25/Mar/17
5'8.25" like Rob.
Revisionist said on 14/Mar/17
He looks to be virtually identical to Rob here. Although his eyeline is clearly higher, his forehead isn't as long as Rob's. I think that 5'8.25" is fair.
Jordan87 said on 16/Feb/17
The pic looks like you just asked him if he likes the site, and his response: No, What are you gonna do about it? Just the impression the stares both give off. Funny one.
J World said on 9/Feb/17
I watched brotherhood last night and hes definitely around 5'7/5'8.
He seems kinda average in that movie as some of the cast are the same size as him or maybe he wore shoe lifts?
MD said on 5/Dec/16
He really does strike me as 5'8". I mean, you say you have on similar shoes, and I think you look taller then him if only by a little. He's certainly not as strong a 5'8" as you are.
said on 22/Nov/16
This seems like it might be a bit too high a listing, even though you've seen him.
With 5'8"(ish) Mo Farah:
With 5'9"(ish) Nate Parker:
I think it's pretty safe to assume that Mo isn't in boots in that first shot, and that Nate is almost certainly in regular dress shoes.
Editor Rob: yes MD, it is very possible he is a 173cm guy, although in person he gave a nearer 174 impression I know he can look about 5ft 8 at times.
Johno said on 23/Aug/16
He is about an 1/3 of an inch shorter than you Rob.
said on 19/Jul/16
@Rob if Noel is 5'8.5 in person making him a weak 5'9 possibly on a good day, how tall does that make Samoa Joe in this picture, taking into account Joe doesn't seem to be stood straight
Editor Rob: I would have said between 3-4 inches may be possible.
w said on 13/Jul/16
its because his head is tilted
Peter 179cm said on 25/Jun/16
No taller than Rob,173cm imo or about 5'8.25.
Johno said on 20/Feb/16
Johno said on 20/Feb/16
Rob i can clearly see that he would be between 5'7.5-5'7.75 if straightening his head.
TJE said on 31/Oct/15
Same thing happened to me. I was 5'8.5 at age 15 and didn't grow for 2 years. Since turning 17, I've grown 2 inches.
OneNamePlease said on 25/May/15
1.73 with Rob
CD said on 27/Feb/15
My guess is this guy has probably a few mm over Rob, not a full cm though. 5ft 8.25 is probably his lowest height but measures very near 5ft 8.5 at lunchtime. He has a high eyelevel which helps him pass for nearer 5ft 9 in general.
said on 26/Feb/15
Rob I think you look 5'9.Do you know when you stopped growing?
[Editor Rob: yes at age 14 I was 5ft 8 and at 16 when checking again realised I had stopped growing!]
said on 22/Feb/15
Looking at petrenkos comment makes me wonder why the guys head is so flat on top like that, any opinions rob?
[Editor Rob: yeah, a different more flatter head I guess, but I'm not an expert on skull shape so really don't know how prevalent it is.]
Sid said on 20/Feb/15
I'd have to agree with petrenko.Rob you look taller than the guy regardless of the half inch difference u listed
Petrenko said on 20/Feb/15
Rob you are taller than him, his skull is flat on the top ("wierd").Rob your 5'9 I think
said on 2/Feb/15
Rob what do you think his eyelevel is (i.e. your is about 4.5 inches)?
[Editor Rob: I think his head is a bit under average and eyelevel could be 4.2 range.]
sed said on 14/Dec/14
used to think he was like 5'10 lol, looks more 5'8 and probably hits 5'9 on a good day

Rob, made this little comparison. You have a 1/4 inch of hair (I seem to remember you saying), so up to that line is roughly 5ft 8 and 3/8. I think tilting head back adds a few mm because I tried it once, and as you can see he still doesn't even reach that line. What do you think? Maybe 5ft 8.25 is on the money. He just has a high eyelevel and short forehead. Personally I don't see a full 174cm, except maybe at 9am, although I could be wrong.
[Editor Rob: he could be anywhere in 5ft 8-8.5 range]

Kourosh I'm not sure he stood his absolute best tbh.
Kourosh said on 19/Nov/14
josh b you look to have well more than 4 cm on him. more like 7cm
said on 10/Nov/14Click Here
Similar footwear with me here.
Writer said on 9/Nov/14
He had about 2cms on me in Cardiff Comic Con, and I'm 5'7. So this seems about right.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Oct/14
No taller than you, Rob
Adamz said on 13/Oct/14
"fsd" how tall are you though? its important in perception maybe?
lelman said on 20/Sep/14
He is not taller than you, if he is it's by a mm maximum. I think 5ft 8.25, like you.
fsd said on 16/Aug/14
"adamz" i think noel looks avg the reason some might think he looks short is that most of his pics taken are around tall people .
said on 7/Aug/14
Rob, How Tall would you guess Aml Ameen off Kidulthood?
[Editor Rob: close to 5ft 7 is possible]
Adamz said on 18/Jul/14
O gawd am i sh0rt??
Adamz said on 18/Jul/14
173/4 same as me mid-day. Weird height to be because dunno if u blend in with medium/average height or if u are deserving of a "short" label... what do you guys think? Is Noel a short man or more of an average medium-ish height man?
Adamz said on 18/Jul/14
SaveUsY2J said on 6/Jul/14
Looks too close to call, this one. Heads seem to end at the exact same point but the eye levels suggest he has the edge...
Adamz said on 5/Jul/14
Same height as you just different proportions (in regards to eye level). Caucasian and african americans just have diff bone structures as do Asians. Basic anthropology.
Adamz said on 1/Jul/14
you guys are statistically a little short for (under 5-10) but look to blend in with average height here... dunno why
Mike T said on 30/Jun/14
Yeah that's about a 1/2 inch
mike said on 29/Jun/14
he looks 5ft 8.75.
Berek said on 25/Jun/14
Looks bang on the money at 174cm.
Bogie said on 20/Jun/14
Rob, how come you always look as tall if not taller than guys you list at 174 or 175...
littlesue said on 20/Jun/14
Nothing more than 5ft 8.
said on 20/Jun/14
Rob, him tilting his head back looks like it may had a slight bit of height for him? He looks like he'd be exactly your height.
[Editor Rob: it's a tough one, Jenny thought as I said just there that we were similar height...but then I have a few mm more hair!]
said on 20/Jun/14
How come the picture is different to the thumbnail btw? This is a strange one, it looks like he has a slightly higher eye level, but if anything you might edge him out slightly.
[Editor Rob: there are 2 pictures, but this one I think is ideal for height, Jenny was watching these shoots at collectormania, I asked her about each one from her viewpoint outside looking in - she thought we were similar, but he generally does have a higher eyelevel.]

I love the Doctor Who actors.
said on 12/Oct/13
Rob- have you downgraded him because you got a photo with him at a con recently you plan on putting up?
[Editor Rob: I didn't think he was a 5ft 9 guy.]
Jantine said on 9/Feb/13
5ft8 at most. 5'9 would make Noel close to Daniel Craig...who is James Bond.
Mightyman said on 10/Nov/12
Met him in flat trainers 5'8.5- 5'9 is spot on.
SAK said on 17/Jun/12
On the show 'Sunday Brunch', standing next to Tim Lovejoy (5ft10) he looked 5ft7.5/5ft8. I didn't get to see there footwear so may Lovejoy had an advantage. But I am thinking Noel Clarke is really 5ft8.5.
Rich said on 8/Mar/11
I saw him in Brighton, he didn't seem tall or short, but if I'd have to guess I'd say he looked around 5ft8-5ft9
Jack said on 1/Dec/10
Shia is taller by a hair's breadth
